The Second Starfall
Despite the ancient Starfall Truce, the wizards of Thassal unearthed the forbidden knowledge of the astromancers—stolen from the libraries of Ejdəquru— and usde it to bring about a swift end to those in Ackenzal challenging Thassalian imperial claims. A large swath of Ganza, now called The Char, was wiped off the map, and the dust from the impact brought about what would be called The Gray Winter, choking out not only Ackenzal, but the fae of Cairnaythiel as well.
The High King of Ackenzal petitioned the fae courts to punish the Empire of Thassal for their transgression, and provided the Anachitis for this purpose. The warlocks of the fae court used the power of the ancient stone to unleash The Wombplague on the Thassalians, making it so that no child born of the empire would have a soul, and thus come into the world lifeless. The war between Ackenzal and Thassal was thus brought to an end, with both nations abandoning their imperialistic pursuits and leaving the colonies, now called Zapandi, to self-govern.
