This bitter war between the Flaemis and Artaxertus has been going on for more than a millenia. The enemies of this war are evil, with one being lawful, and the other chaotic. Each seek the extermination of the other side.

The Thrones War is a never-ending struggle between two sentient thrones and their minions. The Pumice Throne controls the people of Flaemis and the Glacial Throne pulls the strings of Artaxertus. The forces on both sides have deep trench lines, walls, and fortifications that cover the ever-shifting borders between Anubeth and Igas. Not only do the borders change from victory and defeat, but also physically change with the ebb of battle. A volcano may rise from the center of a raging battle, destroying or scattering both sides, or a blizzard may scatter the fire dwellers from a vast area. The glaciers then flow into these areas, then becoming the territory of Artaxertus.

In 753, two years after the start of the war, raids and incursions began spilling over into the territories of three wizard-governors of Tamlêrran. This led to them building the Elemantum Boundary Ward.

Although not proven, the unnatural changes to the land, and the unimaginable ability to control the flow of lava or the moving of vast glaciers is said to be done by the two thrones.

We cannot continue this struggle with the Thrones and their minions for much longer. They grow stronger and we grow weaker. For ten years we have waged bitter war, with genocide on the minds of our enemies. We must pour all our resources into a ward that will contain Igas and Anubeth. Something of this magnitude has never been done before, but we have the magical might and engineering to do what none others can do.
