Of Kings and Men
The War of Fey
“The War of Fey was the first known confrontation between outsider races and the First Men. It was a short conflict – lasting only three years – in which the many creatures that exist beyond our realms came upon the Earth – whether through the will of the Gods or some cosmic accident – and attempted to carve for themselves a land in the realms of the First Men.
It was a bloody conflict, but the First Men managed to drive the creatures off into the wilderness, scattering their armies to the winds and preventing these folk from ever achieving the same sophistication and civilization as Humans. However, the cost was high – thousands upon thousands lay dead and mysterious illnesses claimed the lives of many more, creating the dreaded Land of Illness."
