First Age of Strife: The Elves trick the dwarves into constructing the Staff of Ichor, and the two peoples go to war for hundreds of years. Death is seen for the first time in the world.
The First War in Heaven: Vosk rises out of the realm of Dusk and wages war against the Gods, creating the Antiseed and blocking the sun for four years.
