War of the Three Heads

The War of the Three Heads was a conflict between the Orcish Hordes and the allied armies of Summerlund, Dalenshire, Faerinwold, and Tavanion. Spurred on by the God-King Laminok, the Orc warlord Gruzhgarn sailed with a large fleet from Turkhast to Sharbaduk. He sent three envoys to King Hadyn Thonwyr of Summerlund, offering to trade Sharbaduk back to the Summerlings if the King would sign a pact of non-aggression that would allow the Orcish Hordes to conquer in southern Dalenshire and Tavanion as they pleased. The King replied by sending back the envoys’ heads to their warlord.

The War was made difficult by an alliance between the orcs and the Sahuagin. As the allied forces massed on Bloodsand Beach, raiding parties of orcs would strike by land, and sea devils would rise from the waves, rendering the Tavanion navy much less effective than in previous conflicts.

The tipping points came at Brokenwall Keep. Spurred by the capture of his son, Lurgrak, Gruzhgarn himself took the field, only to meet defeat at the hands of Lt. Daria Havengard and the Fire Wasps. With Gruzhgarn slain, the orcs were routed and found themselves in retreat back. Some parts of Dalenshire were actually reclaimed from the Orcish Steppes, resulting in the greatest defeat of the orcs since the Second Witching War.
