Beginning with a conflict between the Orcish tribes of Kwarf and Harc, open war eventually led to the encroachment of Elvish lands. The Wood Elves and Drow uneasily banded together to drive this common enemy from their lands. Soon, an all-out war broke out between the Orcs and Elves. After driving the still-feuding Orcs further from the elven borders than they had ever been, the Drow and Wood Elves fell into disagreement about the new border lines. The two groups could not agree in council, and one morning, Fuildalanar, King of the Wood Elves, was discovered dead in his bedchambers, along with Celetesine, his wife. That day, Prince Yaundir held council with his people, and war was declared upon their Drow cousins. Eventually this blood feud escalated to the point where Dwarven council members felt the need to intervene in an effort to prevent an all-out war. A council was declared by the Dwarven nation, and both Elves and Drow were present. While at this council, called the Council of Twilight, Humans, fearing an allied strike on their lands next, struck preemptively, killing all three of the racial leaders. The power-vacuum then created world-wide chaos resulting in death, and political discord. Aquatic-Elves, fearing a poisoning of the sea by the now power-hungry humans, cut off all communications between ports by destroying all Sea-faring vessels. This defensive measure was pioneered by Lashathan, King of Tharsea. The Aquatic-Elves were not considered a threat by the land-dwellers, who considered it nothing but a high-insult.
