The sheer number of bodies involved in this war merited its title. A mysterious figure who went by the name Azren, and referred by many as The Afflicted One, came down from the north with a menagerie of kobolds, nawroms and other creatures. He recruited the Northerners and the dogar to his cause, creating the most formidable army to cross the continent. The humans of central and southern Draza made their own allies: the rogroms to the east and eventually the sinestre, who entered the war only after a patrol was attacked by kobolds. The war was brutal and bloody, but finally Azren and his allies were on the verge of defeat. Leaving the Northerners for slaughter, Azren headed for his stronghold in the Blighted Lands with the remains of his army. The sinestre pursued and it was said that they killed Azren before he was able to return to his domain.
