War of Tears

(1044-1049/6) The War of Tears was a brutal conflict between the nations of Eldara and Vilzar.

The war began with a surprise Vilzari invasion from both land and sea. The Vilzari soon captured the city of Sathay and carried away most of its population as slaves. The Eldaran army eventually drove the Vilzari south across the border, into the desert, and chased them to the city of Eto.

The Eldaran king Lazaro ordered the city burned and its entire population put to the sword in revenge for earlier Vilzari atrocities.

The war received its name from the terrible misery suffered by both sides in this long and bloody conflict.
