The War of Dogs
Named by Vangothic scholars under the misconception that the Heisk were canids, the War of Dogs is a twenty-year war that currently rages between the Heisk states and the kingdom of Vangoth. The original cause of conflict remains unclear, although it is officially stated by Reisk historians to be caused by “old disputes over land… and possible religious tension.”
Within the past three years, the Heisk have become restless and—in a show of uncharacteristic offense—have pushed their way into the neighboring nation. The entirety of the southwestern portion of Vangoth is in Heisk custody, the majority of the population in the area has been slaughtered, and the original capital has been sacked. Some areas, conquered by less bloodthirsty tribes, have simply been assimilated; the humans are allowed to live on certain conditions, and townships have been converted into fortified city-states not unlike the ones of their home territory.
In an attempt to outlast the Heisk, the remainder of Vangoth has gradually been moving further and further inland, back against the harsh lands pressed against the Dragontooth Mountains. Their hope is that the Heisk will be quelled before they are completely driven out or, at the very least, that the Heisk will be incapable of going further if they are pressured into the icy northern lands.
