Many wars have been waged between the empire of Korweyn and the Murmillion kingdom, called "The Second Shadow" (Realm). The Korweyn Empire was already in its decline though, so more and more lands fell to Murmillions until they extended their rule to Eypesh river. Murmillions defeat the last emperor of Korweyn near this river and thus destroy their greatest enemy. However after this grand victory they suffer their own decline and soon most of the conquered lands fall into anarchy.
Tiara Ueweniel, the "Evenstar", has been raised by the warskilled Kassite horsetribe their way. She is the only successor in the direct bloodline and is crowned as first Empress of Korweyn, leader of the Korweynite people.

After an age of darkness the Korweynites pacify many of the regions that once belonged to their realm and bring law and order to the lands.
The Santerran houses turn against each other in disputes about land, fishing rights and domination in the conquered lands. They prove to be little of a match as the new empire of Korweyn rises and risks to be conquered but until very late the so-called "Rage of the Seakings" is an epoch of ongoing war and campaigns between the noble houses. Euri is added to the Santerran domain.
The Kassites settle beside their traditional grazing ground also farther east near the Jerrah as part of a security policy by the Empire to secure the border to Aca-Santerra. Believing in the absolute loyalty of the Kassites the emperor thinks that having trained warrior clans nearby would help to ensure peace at this border.

The Ferrath Islands stay under the control of Anis-Anpagan
Despite all effort of Aca-Santerra and Korweyn, the Ferrath Islands of Nybelmar remain with Anis-Anpagan. even though various priviliges are given to Aca-Santerra and Korweyn. Various smaller colonies all over Wernam break down due to the massive exploitation of resources of the soil. They are abandoned leaving the native population with nothing left. Trade with Sarvonia is slow due to long travel times, the restrictive policy of the Santerrans and the dangerous sea. Usually expensive luxuary goods from both continents are exchanged.
