At the height of the orx war the kingdoms of gaianus grew desperate. They were facing annihilation so they came up with an idea. A weapon created from science and magic specifically made to kill the orx. Machina in conjuncture with Daimios created the undead plague. Through many months of testing and failures they finally finished what they called the plague of death. They immediately worked to deploy it against the orx. They launched bombs carrying the plague into the middle of battle and into orx villages. They infected civilians with it and charged them into orx houses at night to just die and spread the plague. At first it seemed to work as the orx's advance slowed down but that was because the orx civil war had started. The orx shamans with their knowledge of magic had no trouble curing the harmful energies that the plague infected orx with. However this was not the case for the kingdoms of gaianus. Soldiers who had been near bombings or orxs who had caught the plague quickly contracted it. Despite the fact that they plague was infecting themselves the kingdoms still used it. They saw that the orx had been slowed by it and then used it to a greater degree. They were able to beat the orx because of the civil war but that was only the beginning of their problems The plague spread rapidly until it became an epidemic that nearly infected the entire continent. The kingdoms were forced to burn entire cities to halt the spread of the plague. They trapped anyone inside to reduce the chance of it spreading. Anyone who was found to have escaped was killed and any town that they passed through faced destruction. Many other horrors were commited to keep the plague from spreading and while they were awful they did do the job and eventually the plague got under control. At the time all of this was happening is when the undead started to rise in large numbers. They were immediately persecuted and killed on sight as it was believed that they spread the plague. This caused the undead to go and form their own kingdom.
