  • 1750 AF: Several Arylish colonies break away from their parent country an declare themselves the Augustan Republic. Aryland’s General Aberlee, historically renoun for his shortsightedness, attempts to gain a foothold in Valenese territory to launch an attack to the north, thus instigating a war between Aryl and Valen. Aberlee’s forces are driven back and Aryl is too involved in the War in Alderia to intervene in Augusta.
  • 1801 AF: Aryl takes advantage of a brief pause in its war with Valen to mount a vast offensive in Augusta, not just to take back its former colonies in the Republic but to conquer the Augustan Commonwealth as well.
