The Great Hunger of Polforia was a period of mass starvation, disease, and emigration in the then Kanov ruled Polforia between 1684 and 1698 a.a.H.. During the famine, between dead and emigrants, Polforia's population fall by between 20% and 25%.
The cause of the hunger was after four consecutive years of Bad crops, wars between the kanov kingdoms, a wheat disease and finally a volcanic eruption of Dol-Nur.
A Cause for Demonic TakeoverEdit
The famine weakened the Kanovs' rule of Polforia, who couldn't oppose the later founding of Demonic realms in their lands. The massive hunger soured the already strained relations between many of the Polforian peoples and the Kanovs, heightening feelings of independence from Kanov rule, which eventually led to many of the subjects of the Kanovs to support demons or join the Confederation of Free Peoples.
