Daac'or Dynasty

The Daac'or Dynasty was a deist dynasty created in the brief lapse from Khragec to Makhaal rule in the Dhakaani Empire. The dynasty was founded in Uthroul in 10351 EC by the goblin soldier Kel'kelaac, the leader of a large peasant rebellion. The army of villagers was protesting the overbearing practices of the late Khragec emperors and their lack of protection during the worst of the Third Daelkyr War. Kel'kelaac, however, only went by the title of high warlord (lhesh), not emperor (shuul'kech). The capture of most of the Shuugac Province by the Daac'or forces in 10352 EC marked the beginning of the end for the Khragec dynasty as hundreds of thousands rose up against their governors across Dhakaani territory. Within a few short months, Kel'kelaac became the strongest force in Dhakaan and unveiled his motivations: to create a deist theocracy across Dhakaan. It was because of the lack of faith from the goblin peoples, he said, that led to the horrors of the Daelkyr Wars and he intended to bring the gods back into focus.

This policy was met with mixed reactions but most of the population agreed that Daac'or rule was better than the kleptocrats of the Khragec dynasty. Over the next decade, however, policies against ancestral worship and druidic practice increased until control of the population rapidly slipped from Kel'kelaac's control. In 10361 EC, he was defeated at the Battle of Tac'muul Pass by the joint forces of Levkhet Dorakuun, a former Khragec military commander, and Lhesh Gakhuun, future founder of the Makhaal Dynasty. Kel'kelaac died in the battle, along with most of his inner circle, and the rest of his supporters fled north with a large contingent of deists fearing reprisals. They united there with some remnants of the ancient Kingdom of Lhekaan and eventually settled around the watershed of the Aundair River, giving rise to the goblinoid clans that would become the Kech Motrai in Fairhaven.

Makhaal Dynasty

The Makhaal Dynasty was the last imperial dynasty of Dhakaan, ruling from 10361 to 11001 EC. The dynasty was founded by the hobgoblin leader Lhesh Gakhuun, one of the two leaders who overthrew the previous Daac'or Dynasty. Gakhuun came from the Jorek'khar bugbear military clans, who created the Khar Dynasties centuries earlier and more recently were a favored vassal clan of the Khragec emperors and sided with them against the Daac'or establishment. Gakhuun began unifying other groups that disapproved of the Daac'or rule, including the hidden remnants of the Khragec military led by the hobgoblin Levkhet Dorakuun, and by 10360 had an impressive army to launch against the emperor. When Kel'kelaac moved against the rebels, he was defeated and killed at Tac'muul Pass in the Howling Peaks and his supporters fled north.

Gakhuun became the first Makhaal emperor, and with his ally Dorakuun and a goblin leader Arec Heguun could claim they represented all aspects of Dhakaani society, something people were very interested in after the bias of the Daac'or policies. Over the course of its reign, the Makhaal Dynasty became highly integrated with Dhakaani culture and continues to influence goblinoid cultures today in the form of the Kech Volaar. As it developed, two parallel structures came about: one dominated by bugbears and hobgoblins Gakhuun's rule and another of loyalists to the previous Khragec dynasty. In theory, these two groups were working towards identical goals, but as the Makhaal reached its height in terms of economy and territory (around 10700 EC) divisions began to grow. This resulted in 10761 EC with the transition from bugbear imperial lines to hobgoblin lines which continued to the end of the Dhakaani Empire. Opportunistic corruption spread throughout Dhakaani territory and a series of rebellions, natural disasters, and defeats in wars against foreign powers gravely weakened the Makahaal Dynasty during the its final centuries.

Lahaas Uprising

The Lahaas Uprising began with the dissatisfaction with imperial response to a long drought in 11001 EC. The crisis then escalated to an uprising where the revolutionaries went up against Makhaal government officials and military units. The uprising was then assisted by regionalist groups against their own authorities which brought the crisis from a rural issue to an urban one as forces stormed cities throughout Dhakaan. These events served as a catalyst to the collapse of the Makhaal Dynasty and the establishment of regional goblinoid powers that degraded throughout the Modern Age until their eventual destruction by human colonists from Sarlona.
