In -11800 DR, the largely dark- and wild-elven nation of Miyeritar was annexed by the sun-elven nation Aryvandaar and pacified by -11300 DR. The Dark Disaster struck -10500 DR and killed many innocents, though a large number of Miyeritar’s original inhabitants already left for other places.
The Killing Storms weren’t a natural disaster but an artificial one. There seemed to be two potential culprits.
The first theory said that the high mages from Aryvandaar were the culprits. According to it, they assassinated Miyeritar’s high mages to drop the nation’s defences against the Killing Storms, which they caused for an unspecified reason to destroy their own territory which they have pacified by that time. This theory was popular but, due to lack of evidence, completely unfounded.
The Killing Storms reduced the entire forest and realm into barren wastelands in three months.
