Brethren War

01/01/1961 - 08/03/2000

The Breathren war was a protracted global conflict between the Pure and the Forsaken that effected the lives of almost every Forsaken member on the planet. Officially the war ended with the Battle of the Boulders in 1997 and a cease fire lasted until the signing of the Pact of the Spirit Arrow in the United States. Unofficially the war has continued in many other countries, flaring up from a cold war to a hot war in many cases.

Fight against the Idigiam

03/12/1969 - 03/12/1971

A Spirit creature of some power founded an empire in the United States and moved against the forsaken. The creature took members of both the Forsaken and the Pure and twisted them into corrupted Servants and tools. The Pure and Forsaken held a cease fire that lasted for two years to join forces against this foe.

Battle of Boulders

06/12/1997

Last Major engagement of the Brethren War that caused a major wound and summoned Dread Wolf. Only because of the combined effort of the Pure and the Forsaken was the creature dispatched and the battle ended. Scores of Forsaken were killed during the engagement.

The carnage of this battle would eventually serve as a reason for the Pact of the Spirit Arrow.

Pact of the Spirit Arrow

08/30/2000 - 07/31/2013

The Pact of the Spirit Arrow was a monumental achievement and an utter disappointment. The Pact brought an end to the conflict between the Pure and the Forsaken in the United States, bringing the decades long conflict to an end. However, not all nations agreed to the treaty, nor all Forsaken. Both sides now engage in a long cold war over territories, vying for even the smallest advantage. Who knows how long the pact will last?

The attacks were aimed at dislodging the Urdaga’s control over the area and inciting the shadow into open rebellion, but all failed; The Urdaga’s defenses were simply too strong, their roots were already too deep in the land.

First Settlement of Forsaken in the Fatherland

1850

Forsaken emigrated to the area with both the German settlers, Loyalists, and Natives that had come to make up much of the inhabitants in the wake of the war of 1812. Strong in this wild habitat, they were able to move relatively unchecked through the wilderness of both the real and the Shadow.
