The Hedrac War was started by the First Khazarkar Empire. This war was the first in a series of wars called the Domination Wars. It came about from Borillisk's refusal to allow Set's missionaries into their empire. At the time, the ruling government of the First Khazarkar Empire was a magocracy filled with members of the Eldritch Conclave. This organization, no friend to state religion, went into this war not out of religious freedom but with a yearning desire to practice magic on a large scale.

The rise of Conclave web weavers brought about a great interest in tapping into The Weave and unleashing its great stores of arcane energy; and once they got a taste it was like an addictive drug.

- Zôn'ndas, excerpt from Khazarkar History - "Rise of the Conclave"

The war was fought in the Alêth forest and across the Hedrac and Barândîr valleys. The Khazarkar got the upperhand when they blocked the valleys and passes, slowly pushing Borillisk's people towards Lanirûk. The fighting, and devastation wrought by the Gulimbor Cataclysm, eventually forced the Borillisk from a land they had been their home for the last three thousand years.

On 12 Lunar 999, the Borilliskin government having escaped to Sahuld, signed the Hedrac Treaty with the First Khazarkar Empire. As part of this peace treaty, for a period of nine years, they were to give no aid to any parties hostile to the First Khazarkar Empire.
