Tír Dhúchais

History

First Flowering

The first settlements of Tír Dhúchais were founded around -23900 DR in the area later known as the High Forest.

Control of Tír Dhúchais was gained by the clan Vyshaan in -15300 DR, under the leadership of Coronal Ivosaar Vyshaan. The Vyshaanti of Tír Dhúchais claimed a family link to the ruling family of Tír Áthaisling. They then attempted a peaceful annexation of Tír Áthaisling which was resisted.

Tír Dhúchais began the first Crown War by invading Tír Áthaisling in -12000 DR. They also put pressure on Shantel Othreier to accept their rule or suffer the same. By -11800 DR Tír Dhúchais had fully annexed and occupied Tír Áthaisling though some parts continue to resist. Tír Áthaisling wasn't considered fully conquered until -11300 DR.

Third Crown War

In -10900 DR Tír Dhúchais, now the Vyshaantar Empire, ceased talks with Shantel Otheier and invaded, starting the third Crown War. Around this time the Vyshaan lords gained a secret patron in Malkizid, a fallen solar. The Battle of the God's Theater was fought in -10700 DR, one of the greatest and bloodiest battles of the Crown Wars. Over 70,000 elves died as an orc horde fell upon the battling armies of Tír Dhúchais and Shantel Othreier. Tír Dhúchais was victorious and occupied the northern half of Shantel Othreier. Tír Dhúchais fully conquered Shantel Othreier in -10600 DR, after the mysterious death of Coronal Ynloeth ending the third Crown War. Following this, resistance movements sprang up in Shantel Othreier and neighboring Tír Áthaisling. Shortly thereafter the Dark Disaster occurred, and Tír Áthaisling was destroyed by its killing storms. The histories written by the victorius Vyshaanti claim that Tír Áthaisling was responsible. But in reality the high mages of Tír Dhúchais caused the killing storms.

Aftermath

In -3533 DR, the Nether Scrolls are discovered by Finder, a Netherese human, within the ruins of Tír Dhúchais.
