Nicholas-Mark I

The grandson of Jomark and second Emperor of the Aurian Empire. He used aggressive trade and military expansionism to greatly add to the Empire. He did not engage is war with Torash but was very successful. However towards the end of his list of successes he engaged in the Forked Offensive where the veteran imperial armies struck north into the Alkan plains and into what is now called Saracan. Here they found elves and dwarvern armies allied with huge human forces, halfling and others. At the same time they suffered catastrophic defeats in the open plains against the Alkar as their siege and battle line tactics were ill suited to a highly mobile war in the open.

This brought an end to rapid Aurian expansionism and heralded a era of consolidation under his son of the same name.
