Pop. 115, Late Summer of 281 (Year 30)
The safety precautions put in place anticipating goblin aggression inadvertently started a war with the elves. An elven diplomat had been forgotten while all entrances to the fortress had been closed. Apparently he thought he was being held prisoner and began attacking civilians, leading to swift military intervention. This was only a year after another elven diplomat had been ambushed on the outskirts of Relicshield. The elves of the Worthy Prairies cut off all trade, then attacked just as merchants from the Mountainhome arrived. Naturally, elven wood was no match for dwarven steel.
