This page is to describe history that occurred in the Silver Lands, the region east of what is on the main map. Currently, it also describes some things to the south of wesnoth. This should eventually be moved, or we could rename the page.

Best map as of 2019-06-14. Relevant part is everything to the south-east of Lin-Elens.


  • Elves inhabit Lin-Elens.
  • Minotaurs live on the plains around the Lake Aoir. (named Minotaur's Lake on the map)
  • Dwarves live in the mountains around Firecloud Peak. They are prohibited by treaty with the elves from claiming the hills south of the great river.
  • The Eltireans live in floating isles hidden above the eastern side of the Flamebreath Desert.
  • Saurians live in the Ssyuriss Fenn.

20 BW

  • Dwarves from Firecloud Peak cross the Great River and colonize the hills of Triththa.

181 YW

  • The Silver Drakes attack Firecloud peak and the surrounding area, drafting most of the saurians from Ssyuriss Fenn into their ranks.
  • The dwarvish defenses crumble under the combined offensive. When it becomes clear that the war is lost, the survivors evacuate to Triththa.
  • The saurians suffer the brunt of the casualties in the war. The remainder are enslaved by the drakes.

182 YW

  • The saurians remaining in Ssyuriss Fenn are soundly defeated by a Triththan offensive. The remnants of their civilization are a number of disorganised tribes.

  • The orcish horde is driven out by the numerically superior Grand Army of Wesnoth, but some tribes desert and settle the areas furthest from wesnoth.
  • Contact between the settlers and the Kingdom of Wesnoth is lost completely.
  • The settlers acquire a distaste for magic, thinking its use brought on the orcish horde.

546-550 YW

  • Contact between the Khalifate and Wesnoth is reestablished, trade flourishes.
