The Stormcrown Interregnum was a seven year period of time in which the Elder Council fractured, leading into years of ruthless in-fighting, plots and backstabbing. It began with the murder of Potentate Ocato, and during this time many tried to claim the Ruby Throne.

Most were pretenders to the crown, a few had legitimate claims, and others still were little more than brutal dullards who thought mere strength of arms was all the entitlement they needed. The Stormcrown Interregnum was finally ended when a Colovian warlord by the name of Titus Mede seized the crown.[1]
