The Three Acts of Defilement
The Three Acts of Defilement are attributed to and blamed on Ompre, earning him the name of Lord Defiler. These three acts, spread over the ages of Mire-Brissay, changed the world from the idyllic world of A-dui to a world of conflict and death. The First Act of Defilement, the forging of The Swords of Slaying, brought death to the Immortals and ultimately led to their departure from Mire-Brissay. The Second Act of Defilement, The Great Betrayal, led to the ongoing schism among the mortal races, both the Firstborn and the Secondborn. War between and among the various races became more frequent. The Third Act of Defilement, The Shattering, caused the physical break-up of the world, almost led to the death of all people, and ultimately has increased isolation and fear across the world.
