Fury of the Lost One
The Western Invasion was the initial phase of the Horde War in Desia. Every Border nation has always had to deal with enemies and raiders on their borders, but the Western Invasion was different. Suddenly, within days, border outposts were overwhelmed by Undead, Orcs, and hostile mercenaries. Towns and villages were overrun, with those who could not flee slaughtered without mercy. Desian Grand Army border patrols and local units that were thrown in to stem the tide were able to do little more than sacrifice themselves to allow civilians to escape from the city.
The speed and numbers of the attackers crossing the border into the country outstripped the DGA’s ability to muster its forces. It was the Western Invasion that triggered the creation of the Desian Mercenary Corp and resulted in the destruction of places like Deepwood. Contact was lost with the Temple of Melora and other western locations during this time. Unable to effectively confront the attackers, the Third Army of Desia was forced to retreat East, doing its best to cover the escape of the refugees.
