After the Euor threat was extinguished, and the nations of Arcas were given liberty, strife arose once again due to the fact after Anorra, there were now 2 large religions in the land with radically different views. A great war that lasted over 200 years broke out between the old polytheists and the new followers of the Patriarch. The final outcome was that the Polytheists were forced to recognize the new faith, and the Monotheists were forced to lend aid to the defense of the Kar’Nak wall and the Fortress of the 9 Pillars.
32-36-Anorran Empire continues under the leadership of Arren, sister of Anorra, and General Gordon Kriden. Hector, jealous that Anorra appointed Gordon to rule along with Arren on her deathbed, raises an army loyal to him, he marches on the capital, kills Gordon in single combat, and rapes and murders Arren. Hector then demands the people of the Empire now follow him, and crowns himself emperor. The people for obvious reasons refuse and rise in rebellion.

After Belial was slain, a great fortress temple was built over his corpse (the Fortress of the 9 Pillars) to ensure his vile spirit never returned to his body, and a massive wall was built to separate Kar’Nak (the Southern Badlands) from the rest of Arcas.
