History of the Great War


The Great War is a catastrophic conflict which continues to this day

Steps leading to war- each step is an escalation

Shardekkin Revolution- In eastern Dachath, rebel movements of the Shardekkin (an ethnic group, called the Shaudachae in the Dachae language) had long been active. After the Dachae Parliament passed the Force Acts, oppressive legislation against the Shardekkin (the Premiere of the time, Marach Bahn-Talab, has often been blamed for the Force Acts; this is mostly the product of propaganda used by Bahn-Talab’s political enemies), the violence of Shardekkin rebel groups increased. Shardekkin leader Bharm Ksukkir achieved success in inciting several rebel groups into action, jumpstarting the nascent Shardekkin Revolution.

Dachae Civil War- The Revolution quickly accelerated into a bloody civil war. The nation of Dachath became split between the Shaudachath provinces in revolt(composed of the Shardekkin, along with Communist, Anarchist, and other leftist allies who joined their cause) and the Dachath government. It was a brutal affair in which tens of thousands were killed. Dachath became dominated by a military dictator, Naram Adz-Hechuth, who controlled the nation under a state of war. Dachath authorities rounded up thousands of enemy soldiers, prisoners of war, and supposed Shaudachae sympathizers and executed them. In addition to the official battles of between Dachae and Shaudachae forces, independent militias (including the Nationalist Front of Shardekkin and the Unionist Militant Alliance) battled, roamed, and raided throughout the country.
The Shaudachath rebel provinces, as opposed to the Dachae dictatorship, was unstable, and divided from within by bickering groups; the Shardekkin population was for the most part a politically-conservative and religiously-orthodox group (despite their desires for independence), who were ill at ease with their leftist allies, including the radical Shardekkin Anarchist Syndicate. Trang Tung Shekkoth, leader of the Revolutionary People’s Party of Shaudachath, was during this time a largely uncontrollable demagogue, and was famous for riding through the countryside and indicting rich landlords as enemies of the state, independent of the Shaudachae government.
During this time, a supporter of the Dachae government and an opponent of the Shaudachae rebellion was known as a Unionist (though Shardekkin supporters were rarely called Separatists); among Dachae, this has become a general term for a political conservative.

The Tyakkorj Betrayal- The nation of Tyakk, to the east of Dachath, was now obliged to aid Shaudachath, in accordance with the secret Treaty of Miangkkurng, signed by Shardekkin rebels with the Tyakkorj government. The Tyakkorj government supported the Shardekkin largely on the grounds of the long rivalry between Tyakk and Dachath; another possibility is the desire for an allied neighbor in a region largely hostile to the Tyakkorj regime. General Tsdahkk Hwahr moved the Tyakkorj army into Shaudachath, and within weeks, it appeared that the tide was turning strongly for the Shardekkin. Victories included Chringrab and Logaz, and a spectacular victory at Mnaul. After this victory, General Hwahr recieved secret orders from Tyakkorj High Command and began to intermittently battle and eliminate Shardekkin militias; these betrayals were often explained to Shardekkin authorities as communications errors and cases of mistaken identity or friendly fire. Soon thereafter, further Tyakkorj forces moved into Shaudachath. Hwahr and his commanders sent out roving bands of war engineers to destroy telegraph wires and destroy infrastructure, and then openly turned on Shardekkin forces. General Hwahr largely held the line against the Dachae, while allowing his (arguably more cruel) commanders to tighten the noose on the Shardekkin capitol of Aspechae (Arspekeh). Within a few weeks, Tyakkorj forces had captured all of the territory of the previous rebel provinces (as well as slight gains beyond it into Dachath proper), and had executed large groups of Communists and Shardekkin in the capitol, including Lhorung Semn Srarnkeh, the newly-elected president of Shardekkin. This would come back to haunt the Tyakkorj during the occupation, when his memory would be resurrected as a symbol of defiance against oppression and a martyr of the cause of Shardekkin freedom, and, ironically, Dachae freedom as well.

Ai Paitun or Srath come to aid of Dachath (Corheen and Dachath previously fought a war, so it makes no sense to have Corheen come to help first)

what next?

The Candle-Eyed Man

       By: Murometz

The third son of a candle-maker, and secretly a spy, Tsiao Fong Wei betrayed his family, clan, and town to the merciless Qongg Dynasty, causing the deaths of his own family members. He survived to an old age hiding out in the country side and keeping a low profile. One day however, the “Paper Knife” finally found Tsiao Fong Wei , and exacted his revenge on behalf of the folk, dead and tortured.

After a furious struggle, the “Paper Knife” plunged twin burning candles into the eyes of the traitorous old man and laughed, as Tsiao Fong Wei howled in dismay and pain. Some say Tsiao Fong Wei died that day. Others say that the old man somehow escaped despite his sudden anguish and utter blindness.

The truth is lost to time.

But to this day the children of the Red-Ridge County towns and villages are told by their parents to always beware twin lights in the darkness and to never venture into the woods at night, and to keep an ear open for the Groaning Ghost, for somewhere out there Tsiao Fong Wei the Traitor, now a vengeful spirit, stumbles about the darkness moaning and wailing, candles still sticking forth from out of his otherwise empty eye sockets. And though the candles plunged into his eyes all those years ago were a’flame going in, now the wax protuberances are somehow lit from within and burn without, and two flickering lights in the darkness, always portend his coming.
