The Seas of Arnesia
White Squall War
Forty years ago Dalderosh went to war with Levendria over trade and border disputes in a conflict that became known as the White Squall War. Despite its superior training and tactics, Dalderosh was not able to compete with the Levendrians in terms of production and its economy began to implode. In his desperation, the Dalderosi king turned to the Rosewater Lords of Palakos for aid and assistance, which they happily supplied.
Despite this influx of money and supplies, the White Squall War ultimately ended in a stalemate. Afterwards the Dalderosi found themselves unable to repay the enormous debt they had incurred. Citing ancient Palakanian tradition, the Rosewater Lords annexed Dalderosh, placed the royal family under house arrest, and now subject the dragonborn populace to oppressive serfdom.
