Like no other war to date, the Chaos War has embroiled numerous empires in its bloodshed. As of today, over four hundred thousand souls have been killed in the fighting, several cities laid to waste, some turned to chaos ruins, and empires wiped off the map.
Until 1832, the war was blamed on the Chaos Maelstrom, with Neeth-Theen considered a casualty of its chaotic emanations. This thinking changed after an Entropy Arch was opened in the Khazarkar city Sapthiladân. The Entropy Arch opened a rift between Chaos and the world Bal-Kriav. Out of this rift, emerged the primordial lord Drachmon and the 3rd Horde of Chaos. Since he is a primordial lord, some think that Drachmon is the true leader of the Flux Pact, and the behind the war's start.
