The Commonwealth was formed in response to the rapid expansion of the Orcish Empire. An alliance had long existed between Humans, Dwarves, Halflings, and Wood Elves.

Many more peoples and factions had been aligned with the old alliance and were quick to join the newly formed Commonwealth to offer joint protection and safety for their lands.

Those who were not yet annexed by the Empire had only two choices: fight for independence and die, or join the Commonwealth.
