Sea of Sorrows
The Lich War
A few hundred years ago, a group of evil wizards decided that life was obsolete. They believed that only in death, particularly undeath, could true mutability and perfection be found. Using a hideous eldritch ritual, all seven members of the wizard’s cabal transformed into liches, and began a war against the living world.
The Lich War was the most destructive event since the war between the gods and primordials. Teeming hordes of the undead devoured entire cities. Regions were put to the torch to try and staunch the flow of the rotting monsters.
Eventually, the forces of the living won, and the liches were chased into the Shadowfell, their armies destroyed. The land of the living, however, was irrevocably changed.
