The Wars of Destiny were a series of conflicts that lasted from 2-15/5, fought between rival Vaas warlords trying to control the Highlands region of Corwyn.


Sometimes called the "Vaasi Civil War," the final conflict tht swept through the Highlands was instigated by Erin Fremantle; who believed it was his "destiny" to unite the Vaas people under a single banner.

At that time, Erin was already the undisputed leader of the Eldir Clan, but there were eight other clans which would have to submit to his authority before his dream could become a reality.

Background


In the wake of the defeat of Alokkair, the west was secure, and the Ravinian Empire was founded. One of Empress Ravinia's Chieftains; Lord Erin Fremantle, then took up the monumental task of bringing order to the Highlands by uniting them under a single ruler, Erin was assisted with both money and troops by the Empress, and by the Freehold of Dorada.

At the Dawn of the Fifth Age, the Highlands region was divided into ten rival, competing factions:

These various strongholds were divided and weak after fighting in the War of the Pretender. Nevertheless, Erin still faced a daunting task to conquer all of them. It took nearly thirteen bloody years, but Lord Erin was victorious and was crowned the first king of Erindar.

The Campaigns


At first, Erin tried to negotiate terms from the other Vaas strongholds, but when diplomacy failed, he turned to outright warfare, and the Highlands was plunged into chaos. At that time, Erin's strongest rival was King Casperian of Rilsavar.
