Nor’s displacement was a boon and a curse, as its inhabitants found out. A hunting cadre of several hundred interplanar Dragons stumbled upon Nor where there should have been emptiness. The natural superiority of the Dragons caused them to attack and destroy several outlying villages; a dual squad of Elves and Dwarves was dispatched from Norfeld to find the cause of the destruction. They found it, and even managed to kill several of the Dragons.
Enraged by the loss of their brethren, the Dragons counterattacked, slaying nearly all of the Dwarves and Elves who had so blemished their honor; two escaped to bring back news of the terror burning the land and boiling the sea.
With losses on both sides, neither would back down—one defending a homeland, the other taking vengeance for fallen friends.
