The war was named after the beginning battle at Vingaard Keep, and the campaign continued until the liberation of Kalaman when the Whitestone Army finally had defeated the Dragonarmies in Solamnia.
The armies involved were the Whitestone Army led by Laurana Kanan, Blue Wing led by Highmaster Bakaris, Red Wing led by Bakaris, Green Wing led by Highmaster Kadagh, and the White Wing led by Highlord Toede. The Gold General defeated all of the different Dragonarmies surprisingly in less than a month.
