War of The New World
The colonies were originally set up to be a method of increasing the overall dominion of the Empire. The main reason was due to the Vikings in the north. It was rumored that the Vikings had known about The New World for hundreds of years, but never thought to settle there since they considered it too harsh for humans. Within the last three hundred years the Empire found The New World, and a hundred years later had found that the Vikings would often sail there, and back. Rumors sprung up that the Vikings were spreading their domain, and the Empire took this as an imminent threat to their superiority. Once these issues were brought up to the Emperor at the time he immediately ordered that a crusade be established on The New World, and that the Empire would rule there as well as its own dominion.
After the first settlers had began setting up structures Elves decided to come out of hiding and greet the humans. These Elves unfortunately did not have proper Imperial “etiquette” and to the humans their gestures seemed barbaric. After a short discussion amongst the first settlers they decided that when the Emperor declared The New World Crusade he was talking about these strange folk with pointed ears being one of the enemies of God. Upon them deciding this they had slain the Elves that were amongst them. After this many Elven warriors had emerged from the forest over the months that followed the event. Through a war of attrition the humans were driven back to their homeland. It was not long afterword that warships set sail across the ocean. Many great warriors landed on the shores of The New World. From there the Empire established many great colonies, and managed to push the Elves from the Eastern coastline of The New World. With the Empire though followed the Vikings whom settled in the Northern areas of The New World, and the two groups of humans now clash on two continents while simultaneously battling the “barbaric” Elves.
One of the many wondrous sights to behold amongst the new Imperial Colonies.
