The Sothillisian War was a war that lasted over 4 years between the nation of Amn and the Sothillisian Empire with the goal of recovering the lost Armory of Nedeheim.
The ogre mage Sothillis and his mate Cyrvisnea began this war by leading their army of kobolds, goblins, hill giants and ogres, supported by Cyricists in an attack on Fort Ishla and Esmereltan. Both attacks were resounding victories, due in no small part to their superior numbers and the defenders distracted by the secession of Riatavin to Tethyr. The ogre magi were dismayed to not find the armory in Esmereltan, but found documents hinting that it had been moved to the city of Murann.
Cyrvisnea led part of the goblin and kobold sections of their army, aided by their Cyricist allies to Imnescar and sacked it. Sothillis meanwhile, left a hill giant garrison in Esmereltan and went through Trademeet towards Murann, laying seige to it. The Pirates of the Nelanther Isles blockaded Murann’s port and the siege continued until the fall of winter. The monstrous army dug in and fortified its rear flank, capturing several Amnian watchtowers in the northern foothills of the Small Teeth and building several more west of Trademeet.
