A few generations had passed since the Towten, and Hummy had found peace and prosperity in the Inland. Most of the Misch slowly followed and joined the Hummy. It should have been enough to live in such serene tranquility. Even better, the Hummy found a cave full of the largest most brilliant gemstones ever. The Towten thought, how nice and went about their way. The wealth didn’t have much value when there was no one to buy or trade with.
The Towten found a nice gold vain of their own, so they bargained with each other. But when building the third dam, the Towten found a wall of gold and the Hummy just couldn’t sit still for it. Around about the same time the forest Misch discovered a way to navigate the Mellows or Losmen Forest. They became the first merchants.
It was as if the later generation had all but forgotten the reason for being in the Inland was to live in harmony. The Hummy claimed the land belonged to them because the Misch had been there first. The Towten claimed they sent scouts years before and when they arrived no one was living there and considered themselves gracious for allowing the Hummy to stay. That started the ongoing TowHummy wars that lasted for years.
Finally, they reached the point of exhaustion. No more massive armies, with huge battles. Being so isolated it took a long time to replace their losses. And at just the right moment and right under their noses, they discovered evil eyes had been watching.
