Al-Kharid alongside with the rest of the Kharidian Desert and Vigilis Cruor and it's evolved version of Das Kaiserreich der Cruor have had a bad history in terms of war. The two sides have clashed multiple times, and one side has owned the other before, with both sides assisting each other at times as well. This documentary will be listing all the wars between lands of Kharidia and both versions of Cruor.

History Between Cruor and Kharidia

Here is the history of clashes and other stuff between Cruor and Kharidia.

World War II history

With Aztarwyn as the creator and ruler of Das Kaiserreich, the history of Cruor and Kharidia go way back to when Aztarwyn ruled the Kingdom of Zamorak, and World War II continued to rage on. The K.O.Z and the Nova Knights fought in Asgarnia, while a Nova Commander seized control of Al-Kharid and wanted him and his men to remain neutral in the war. Aztarwyn had warned the commander that if they did not remain neutral, Al-Kharid would pay the consequences. The commander kept this deal and remained mostly neutral, until Aztarwyn got word that a few Nova Knights deployed from Al-Kharid were seen at the battle between allied forces, and Aztarwyn's ally Katsu was killed by one. Aztarwyn, outraged at the death of a good friend and the breaking of a deal, gathered his army and marched to Al-Kharid. Within an hour, all that remained of Al-Kharid was the sticks of the foundations for the palace. The rest, was either in flames, or rubble. Aztarwyn left his mark on Al-Kharid there and left.

The Cruor-Genic Alliance

Dominus Bruce Clough of Vigilis Cruor was able to secure an alliance with Emir Path O. Genic of Al-Kharid before the Cruor-Black Knight war. Bruce hoped to keep a stable alliance between the two, however the alliance died off eventually.

Resurface of Vigilis Cruor

The resurface of Cruor took place in Nardah, where the Cruor army invaded and destroyed many homes, and killed many people. Four piles of bodies were made outside of the town and burned.

The Gonzo Civil War

Al-Kharid was the scene of the battle between members of the Gonzo Family, loyal to Aztarwyn and those who wanted Aztarwyn to keep his personal rivalries out of politics. Al-Kharid soldiers evacuated the citizens of the city and then Aztarwyns army as well as half of the family arrived. The other half of the family, some Bruce loyalists, and the ten remaining Nekai. The two sides battled, the Nekai family being slaughtered, both armies taking casualties, and an overall 20 members of the Gonzo Family slain. Aztarwyn called a retreat after a few buidlings were destroyed and they couldn't breach the palace. The two sides came back together under one family, and thus ended the battle in Al-Kharid.

Under the rule of Kaiser Aztarwyn Zephon Gonzo, Das Kaiserreich der Cruor, the new evolved version of Vigilis Cruor, had their eyes set on the desert, mainly Al-Kharid. 

Events that occured before the war

  • Reasoning for taking the desert was to insert Cruor as a dominant Empire on Gielinor.
  • Queen Emma Marie Genic returns from her leave to spend time with her mother while Filis Aerendyl is still on his expedition to the God Wars Dungeon, so she rules the Kingdom of Kharidia on her own.
  • A Mahjarrat enters the palace and tries to assassinate Emma, thinking that her brother-in-law, Rathor Aerendyl (Who had imprisoned the mahjarrat some time before this incident) was her husband due to false information given by Path. Emma ran out to the courtyard where Aztarwyn would swoop in and teleport her to the Gonzo Realm, ultimately saving her life.
  • Aztarwyn demands Emma to give him her kingdom, or else he would kill her. Emma is unable to escape or fight Aztarwyn because he overpowered her.
  • Emma is able to get Aztarwyn to settle for Al Kharid.
  • Aztarwyn deploys soldiers north of Al Kharid for an invasion, thus beginning a war between guards and soldiers of Al Kharid and Das Kaiserreich soldiers.

The Invasion of Al-Kharid

The Invasion of Al-Kharid started after the sun had set and a flare went off inside the city, lighting fire to some buildings. L.C.S. teams from the pond came out and attacked border control, allowing the army to move in. The invasion was an impressive display of the work from Das Kaiserreich's Military, using epionage and brute force to take the city. With a few buildings destroyed and some of the palace taken out in the process, Cruor is able to secure Al-Kharid.

  • Cruor secures the city with the guards and soldiers of Al-Kharid surrendering once the palace is taken over.
  • Not many citizens were killed, most were spared.
  • As the sun came up, people saw the results. Military officers worked with the citizens to calm them and explain the situation.
  • Homes are built in place of those that burned and the Palace is repaired.
  • Cruor is in ownership of Al-Kharid, winning the war.

Tensions leading to a possible Cruor-Kharidian War III

Aztarwyn had his eyes set on capturing lands in Gielinor to expand Cruor further, his eyes particularly set on the desert. Feroze was crowned as Emir of Al-Kharid, and he was seen as an imbecile to Aztarwyn, a man who placed himself as a false god and was power-hungry. As the Emirate grew bigger, and turned into a Sultanate, Cruor was ready to take action.

Actions done by Das Kaiserreich

  • A deal was made between Kaiser Aztarwyn and the head of Concendo Industries that Das Kaiserreich would pay for Concendo Industries to build a port on the southern tip of the Kharidian Desert for two million gold. The port was built, and Cruor ships sailed for Gielinor, with weapons and soldiers.
  • L.C.S. teams were deployed all over the desert, creating make-shift outposts to keep watch on Sultanate moves.
  • With Feroze becoming hated for his actions, Aztarwyn was considering on letting the people deal with him.
  • Feroze abdicates, and the plans for Cruor-Kharidian War III were called off, however the military presence in the desert remained.

Operation Kharidia

Operation Kharidia was the first operation given to the L.C.S. by Kaiser Zephon Altus Gonzo, in attempt to create a true Empire on Gielinor. With the Khanate dropping lands beyond the desert mining camp, and Pollniveach secured by some person, Zephon saw the opportunity of what was left to do what his father wanted before stepping down from the throne, to take the Kharidian Desert.

Execution of Operation Kharidia

  • L.C.S. Team Delta Actual was sent to Uzer to secure the ruins and wait for reinforcements. They did their task without a problem, exempt the heat.
  • The armies first destination was Sophanem and Menaphos. They left Port Kharidia and secured the twin cities, occupying it until a regent was found.
  • The military force surrounding Nardah was re-activated and they had begun to prepare for an invasion.
  • Reinforcements arrive to Uzer, securing a route for supplies to make their way to Uzer, including supplies to rebuild the area and create a city like no other.

The Invasion of Nardah II

Nardah was invaded soon after what was free of the desert was taken. The military struck in their normal impressive fashion, using espionage and brute force to take the town successfully.

Aftermath and Results

  • Supply ships sent from the homeland of the Empire were shipped to Port Kharidia, to begin supplying Uzer with materials needed to build a city.
  • Nardah is captured and a regent is found.
  • Sophanem and Menaphos remain under a military control.
  • Operation Kharidia is marked successful.
