John Fredrick Horen is then declared Emperor of a new Holy Oren Empire (different to the one of two centuries ago) by the Church of the Canon. After a short conflict between Savoyard and Imperial forces, the Treaty of Metz is signed. Uldar Irongut is crowned Grand King of the Dwarves after the recent election.

1527: Aeroch Nor is vassalized peacefully by the new Holy Oren Empire as per The Treaty of Erochland on the 11th of Malin's Welcome, 1527.

The Iron Uzg begins advancing towards the Princedom of Fenn as an act of retribution to prior threats.

1528: The Iron Uzg wins against the Ivae'Fenn outside their city, and prepare to siege Tar'sil, the Princedom's capital. The Imperial Emperor of Oren, John I Frederick of House Horen signs the Treaty of Fenland with Grand Prince Aelthir Tundrak.

1540: After the defeat at Khro'Nogaak, the Orenian forces march on Avar, after winning a sea battle against Urguan. Without much resistance they reach Hiebenhold 2.0 and besiege it. After many hours of fighting, the dwarven forces are unable to keep the Fort and soon the Orenian forces occupy it.

1541: With the recent victory at Hiebenhold 2.0, the Orenian forces lay siege on the last dwarven hold of Urguan on Avar, the Grandaxe Keep. The siege lasted for months as the dwarven forces used explosive arrows to halt the Orenian forces. Despite all the effort of the defensive side, the Keep falls.

1542: The Kingdom of Urguan and the Konigsreich of Vandoria join forces and form the Empire of Vanderguan. The Orenian army after occuping Avar decides to march on Kal'Ordholm.
