Three hundred years ago, the vast and sudden Underworld Incursion erupted. It was immediately apparent to the humans that if they did not receive some kind of help, their kingdom of Carloth would be overrun and their people enslaved. The humans sought an alliance with the most powerful of the surface races, the elves, who reluctantly agreed to set aside their usual isolationism once they recognized the severity of the Underworld threat.
The humans always had an amenable relationship with the mysterious coyotle, who also joined the coalition. The Underworld Incursion was so fierce and devastating, even the fanatical orcs agreed to join the Ardent alliance.
The idea to name the alliance the “Ardent” was suggested by Singing Cloud, a coyotle medicine man. Ardent is the name of the brightest star in the summer sky and the third brightest object in the heavens (after the moon and Hex). The star’s fierce and eternal glow, it was thought, would inspire the Ardent forces, no matter how dark the years of war would become.
