In ages past Bael Turath with the aid of infernal forces sent forth its legions to conquer nearly all of the free lands of man. Though defeated by the slimmest of margins at the Battle of Tattered Flag, the defeat quickly cascaded down until Bael Turath was merely a shell of its former glory.
Pacts struck throughout the war have left both the lands and people of Bael Turath tainted by the infernal powers that once served its mighty generals. The entirety of the Tiefling race is said to have been birthed by those who gave up their humanity to lead the armies of demons into battle. To this day Bael Turath is one of the few lands where Tieflings might make up a majority of the populace.
Recent years has found Bael Turath with few allies and a growing list of enemies. Beset on its western and northern borders Bael Turath has slowly been losing land to conquests by neighboring lands. An uneasy truce has settled with its Northern neighbors, but the at the cost of the Crystal Mines of Tijdanal. With the truce though Bael Turath is now able to put its full military focus on the lands of Deoirinth and attempts to reclaim lands lost over the last century.
