The M'Chek-T'Nanshi War was the conflict between the nations of M'Chek and T'Nanshi over their border lands.

Causes

The war began as a conflict regarding the need for more lands for farming for the starving of M'Chek, and the reluctance of the T'Nanshi nation to cut down their forests. M'Chek tried to expand northward, as that was the only direction for them to seize fertile lands. They were met with strong resistance from the nation of T'Nanshi.

Allies were sought by M'Chek, and included the Titanian Fey, and the shaahesk of Drotid. The war eventually involved all of southern Avlis as the conflict spread, including the city-state of Elysia as T'Nanshi's ally. Ferrell struggled to remain neutral, as did Deglos.

As more allies became involved, this war and the Second Fairy War were almost inseperable.
