For years, there have been a long term plot to conquer the Known World, which in part started out of Hule. Later over time, there has been growing influence into Sind, to use this nation as an unstoppable force to invade future established nations, which would later become Darokin. Here is the history of occurrences within Sind and also meddling by the Master.

Sindhi History

by Joaquin Menchaca

Ancient History

2250 BC: Ilsundal led several clans of elves on a migration across the Great Waste. Herd animals and Urduks (Neathar descendants) settled the area.

1750 BC: Several volcanic eruptions and earthquakes extending eastward from the Burning Waste split several land masses away from the coast forming scattered islands in what is modern day Ierendi and Minrothad Guilds and shattered the plateau. (Known as the War of the Elements)

1675 BC: Migrations of copper skin settlers from the ruined plateau were driven from their homes by Tahkati Stormtamer and his united tribes called the Children of the Horse. These people later called themselves the Sindhi. Trade later developed between the Sindhis and the Urduks.

1400 BC: Children of the Horse united under their leader Atruaghin. Urduks and Sindhis enjoyed prosperity from the rich fertile crops of Sindhi and the herds of Urduks.

1000 BC: Tribes of gnolls fleeing from their Nithian masters made their way into Amsorak Mountains. Hordes of orcs from the conquered Five Shires, and goblins and hobgoblins migrated to Amsorak Mountains and northwest towards the Black Mountains.

800 BC: Atruaghin returns to unite his people against Red orcish oppressors. Sindhis seized the opportunity to throw themselves in force against the Red Orc western lines.

795 BC: Concerted attacks by two enemies crushes the orcish conquerors causing the remaining Red Orc survivors fled towards east and north. Eastern border of Sindh establish after negotiations by Atruaghin.
Atruaghin raises a mighty plateau which causes bizarre weather patterns.
