Two years after the discovery of Felgoria, in 1672, Lejeu purchased land from a relatively peaceful Felgorian tribe and began building a large settlement. However, after nearly three months of building the same tribe that had sold Lejeu this land returned the gold they were offered and threatened to destroy the settlement if the building did not cease. Lejeu refused to stop building and that same night the Felgorians attacked the city. This was the initial attack which started the Felgorian War. Since that incident nearly all of the countries of Étarre have sided with Lejeu in order to colonize Felgoria and expand their empires.
