The War of the Swamps was a guerrilla conflict in the swamps of Polforia during the Kanovhook wars, fought between the 1752 and 1758 a.a.H between the Polforian kanovs under king Rasbärd Longbeard and the Dark Legion.
Following the Kanov defeats in Battle of the Fields of Morod and the Battle of the Burned Fields, Räsbard Longbeard realized that in major battles the Kanovs had little oportunities against the demon lords and dragons of the Dark Legion, so when the Demons invaded the Polforian kanov lands in the 1752 a.a.H. Rasbärd Longbeard retreated with his forces to the swamps, fighting a series of minor battles and skirmishes. To face the guerrilla tactics of the Polforians, the demons built a series of fortresses in the swamps of Polforia, such as the Dark tower of Billiboncea.
With the death of Räsgard Longbeard from sickness in his camp, a succession war began between the Polforian remnants, and a candidate supported by the Dark Legion gained the throne, ending the war of the swamps at the 1.758.
