The Severing War, also known as the Wizard War, is an ongoing conflict between the Allied Kingdoms of Nora and the Brotherhood of Vatharond. The War was officially declared by Garnet XVII on Kithal 28, 1372 after the Battle of Alexandria.

The war was largely caused by the military campaign of the Black Dragons lead by Sergei vel'Fitigern.



Beornin of the Blue Dragon dies and leaves Bjergen, his son, as king of Vatharond.


Bjergen is killed by an Earth Titan at age 16 while taking a regular trip into the Wyrmspires. He leaves no heirs. The Vathroni nobles begin fighting over succession.


Vatharond asks the Noran crown to moderate the situation. The High Crown asks Kristopher Loria to go, but he sends his younger brother, Nicolas Loria, instead.


Due to the mediation of Nicolas Loria, Ioan Alexandru is crowned king and swears fealty to the Noran Crown. This is done to much controversy, Ioan Alexandru is a noted supporter of Nicolas Loria and of the Noran Crown. Over the next year, several Vathroni forts are given over to Noran military control, taxes are raised, and the duties of civil protection of western Vathroni cities are given to Noran military.


Vatharond forces, lead by Sergei the Giant Killer, takes back all the forts from Noran control save four. These are held ransom. Nora tries to send supplies to one of these forts, but the civilian supply ship is attacked and sunk.

Nora openly invades to create a route to evacuate the people in these forts, but are routed and pushed back. The Vatharond onslaught follows these forces past Hammerstock, into Ten horns, all the way to the walls of Alexandria. There, they are finally defeated and as the route back is lightly manned, the Vatharond forces quickly move far back and hold at Hammerstock.
