When the corrupt Guardian Sheltem was finally defeated, the long war between the Ancients and the Kreegans spread to other planets. Seven years after the Second War of Enrothian Succession, a group of meteor-like spaceships fell from the sky like a rain of shooting stars. Emerging from their ships, the Kreegans drove the Halflings from Eeofol, taking the nation for their own.
When he heard of the meteor shower, the knight Lord Kilburn and his men went to investigate it, but none of them returned. King Roland Ironfist, ruler of the Kingdom of Enroth, rode forth with his armies to see what had happened, but he was betrayed by the mage Sulman. Roland, his court wizard Tanir, and the knight Sir Ragnar were all captured, and the rest of the soldiers were slain. While Roland was in his enemy's dungeons, Roland's son, Prince Nicolai Ironfist, ruled the kingdom under the regency of Wilbur Humphrey.
Not content with simply waging war against the Enrothians, the Kreegans also set up the Cult of Baa, a temple of demon worshippers that would weaken the human kingdom from within.
