Ashes of War
Occupying a wide swathe of northern Eberron, Khorvaire is the main continent settled by humanoids. In the distant past, Khovaire was dominated by the great Dhakaani goblinoid empire. But by the time humanoid settlers arrived from Sarlona in the east – some three thousand years past – the Dhakaani empire had waned into warring tribes and city states.
In contrast, human power in Khorvaire waxed, reaching its climax in the founding of the kingdom of Galifar and the Five Nations about one thousand years ago. The light of the kingdom of Galifar burned bright for just under nine hundred years.
In 894 YK, King Jarot, the last king of Galifar, died. With his death, the kingdom of Galifar collapsed. Civil war erupted as his scions refused to uphold tradition and instead battle for the crown. This conflict, which has become known as the Last War, has raged for nearly a century.
