The Exodus was the desperate fleeing of the mortal races into Faerstice. They came seeking sanctuary against the fog, but the elves met them on the coasts and fought them back with all their might. The conflict was bloody, and tens of thousands were lost of both sides. It seemed that the mortals would be pushed back into the fog, but then they all banded together against the elves.
The coalition of mortal races beat back the elves and sacked their majestic cities. Once the elves realized they had lost, they destroyed their homes with torrents of magical energy and ran away to various hidden locations. The mortal invaders moved into Faerstice and began searching for their own lands to call homes.
