The Symphony

The Symphony, also known as the Four Windward Wars, was a turbulent period that began in 9,889 at the Naera Technological Exposition with the assassination of Emperor Fihano and ended in 9,970 with the signing of the Concert of Delezia.

Windward War I

After the assassination of Emperor Fihano by Linyenian student Retaliz Hawina, Rokhtaera and the Nautial Peace issued a joint declaration of war on the nation of Linyen. Zandaera aligns itself with Linyen, and Mæflara declares its neutrality, but joins the Delezian Alliance after being invaded by Zandaera. Lasting only a few short years, it ends with the ceding of large portions of southwestern Linyen to the alliance, as well as the creation of the Zaphæ buffer state between Zandaera and Veiivinis.

First interwar period

A fierce arms race developed, as the Eastern Pact vowed to never again be humiliated by the Delezian Alliance.

Windward War II

Windward War II, also known as the Crimson Monsoon, was the longest of the four Windward Wars. Lasting a brutal 6 years, the Delezian Alliance was forced to dig into the ground to defend against a dual declaration of war by both the Eastern Pact and the Meó Empire. It is estiamted that a combined 18 million people combined died on the Ivini and Delezian fronts of the war, with little territory exchanging hands by the time the armistice was signed.

Second interwar period

Another fierce arms race began, as the two sides of the war sought to develop new technologies that would make trench warfare obsolete. Lysteriokan Civil War.

Windward War III

The development of tanks and airplanes during the eight year interwar period by both sides led to a fast-paced, deadly conflict in Ivinis and Delezia.
