War of Avery FieldsEdit
One of the most catastrophic wars between them was the War of Avery Fields. According to the in-game encyclopedia of Vandal Hearts: Flames of Judgment, Avery Fields is is the place where "two neighboring farmers, one Urdain, the other Balastradian, feuded over the fruits of a nearby tree. The feud ended with the Balastradian farmer killed, and the Urdain driven off his land. From there, the conflict escalated until both kingdoms charged headlong into war." The encyclopedia also tells us about the War of Avery Fields as a "twenty-year war between the kingdoms of Balastrade and Urdu. Said to have escalated from a simple feud between two neighbouring farmers. Ended catastrophically at the Battle of Timion Vale, where both nations' armies were all but wiped out with no winner."
Battle of Timion ValeEdit
In the end, the war ended because of the fallen of the Flames of Judgment during the Battle of Timion ValeTimion Vale, which according to the encyclopedia was "the War of Avery Fields' final battle. The Balastradian army, led by Lord General Daldren Gray, held the line against Sir Tarvis Malderion and his advancing Urdain troops. After ten days and nights, the battle ended in abrupt catastrophe, when the Flames of Judgment destroyed the battlefield." It's later stated in the game that the little feud between both farmers was just an excuse to start a war over the fields, since those were years of great lack of food and resources, but in the end it was the war that really left both countries with no armies, food or resources, and a high amount of male adults died fighting, which led to a equally high amount of orphanaged children, like Tobias, Luce and Connor.
Treaty of Timion ValeEdit
After the Flames of Judgment destroyed Timion Vale and both armies with it, King Everett II of Balastrade met with King Rannak of Urdu on the ruined battlefield of Timion Vale, there to sign a truce between the two nations.
Writ of RestorationEdit
According to the in-game encyclopedia "following the War of Avery Fields, King Everett II drafted the Writ of Restoration as a public works project, financing a kingdomwide program to house and teach the war's many orphans. The Writ draws its name from the Church of Restoration, whose pastors spearheaded the program."
