The Battle of Drem's Error Edit
During this battle, one thousand knights are completely routed by Orcs. Bloodied, the Kingdoms need years to recover their strength for another try.
The Destructuion of Egregor and Zarafheim Edit
15 years into the Shatterwar, the Orcs breached the Dwarfholds of Egregor and Zarafhaim. The few survivors claim they were assaulted first by demonic creatures from the depths of the earth, and only as their forces were drawn away from the entrances did the orcs lay seige. Even then, it seems impossible that the raiders could have broken the Doors of Adamant, for it was told that: "Only a God could break them".
Four years after the seizure of the Dwarfholds, the Orcish hordes used their stolen mithril and adamantine to overcome the Elven guardposts in the Gruel-Telaras border and invaded Telaras proper. The Elves sent requests for aid to their allies in Korstraad, but King Monoril VI refused, stating that if, as they claim, his kingdom is next in the path of the orcs, he must concentrate his forces in defence, rather than "leave [his] lands open".
The Battle of Red Rock Edit
In the Final Battle of The Shatterwar, Prince Kelvoras of the Eladrin avenged his father by slaying Varharan, shattering the orcish warbands and their excessively top-down power structure. However, this battle was sufficient to distract the alliance's champions, allowing Monoril VI to be cut down in battle by the orcs and mysteriously appearing zombies.
