Having had centuries to multiply in the Blighted Lands, the kobolds decided to turn their attention to the south. They marched with a horde of warriors through No Man’s Land with designs on Camere. The great earth elementalist, Ebineezer Garsapian, met the army near the dogar capital of Feralintero. There he created an earthquake to draw the giant burrowing worms known as welanobs to the surface and collide with the kobolds. What transpired was catastrophic. The worms were eventually turned away, but not before more than half of the kobolds were mauled to death. While the horde eventually continued their march toward Camere, laying siege to the city, they soon gave up and retreated back to the Blighted Lands. It is said that their will had been broken on the plains by the welanobs.
