Echoes of War
The Last War
The Last War was a conflict between the nations of Alkenstar, Cormyr, Galt, and Thay. The war raged for nearly 100 years, and most of the combatants do not remember the reasons for its beginning. After nearly driving each of the warring nations to the brink of ruin, an uneasy peace was finally reached with the Lord Jurist of the Knights of the Vallows and his generals brokered a peace deal known as the Vallows Treaty of 1514.
The Last War was responsible for a number of developments in Avistan, not the least of which was the creation of the Warforged. One of the terms of the Vallows Treaty was the deactivation of all of these living constructs. Rumors hold that there are some who wish to cast aside the Treaty and reignite the war, though to what end remains unknown.
