Rúmil VS Rumaktharga

In the First Kizan War, Rúmil's military strategy was to cut the land link between Fargimdal and Rumaktharga. The dwarves outfoxed their enemies, joining caves and making passages that came to be known as the Brother Tunnels. In the second great conflict between Rúmil and the Rumaktharga, the elves used a similar strategy but this time they sought to cut off their water. The river Guirfeint was redirected east, away from the Kizan valley. While Rúmil was building canals for the river's new path, the diggers at Rumaktharga were at work digging deep wells into the Underdark and rerouting mountain streams towards their city. Like in the first war, the elves were beaten not in the field but by dwarven labor and engineering. Rúmil, even with all her might and ten times the population, could not breach the deep defenses of Kizan.

The war also led to the rise in power of several cults and the arrival of priests from a far away land. This all came about from the environmental destruction that came about from Rúmil's river redirection project and Rumaktharga rerouting some of the valley's waterways. One of the cult's that set-up operations in Taurelin was Gebs Chosen. They were employed by Rúmil to oversee the redirection of Guirfeint and to employ Earthen in the digging. Agents of Silvanus in the form of the cult Cheldremn, entered into the fray to try and stop the belligerents from wrecking havoc on the land. They focused their efforts on taking out agents and minions of Gebs Chosen. To counter all the Earthen running about, Cheldremn brought in aid from the distant land Karnegmoth. This was in the form of water weirds and water elementals and their attendants. These attendants were followers of the celestial Lokestant, divine blood of the gods Tempestant and Phalgas. At the time, Lokestant was just a power hero and not yet someone of divine power. Her rise to power happened in this war, with the building of Anglor Hellion and a cult following.
