The Second Act of Defilement
The Second Act of Defilement occurred during [[Ompre’s War]] when many groups within the allied The Races of People turned away from their brothers and sisters and joined the side of Ompre and the Demondim. This act, The Great Betrayal, almost won the war for Ompre, but ultimately failed because of the alliance it forced the Giants, Elves, and a few Dragons to form. However it did have lasting consequences in the form of offshoot sub-races that continue to inhabit Mire-Brissay and often challenge their civilized brethren. Among these sub-races are the various “wild” giants (Storm giants, Frost giants, Hills Giants, etc.), the drow, gnolls, the duergar, and evil fairies. Humans also took part in The Great Betrayal, but the result was not a separate sub-race, rather some communities of humans turned to Ompre and even today some individual humans world-round believe in him.
