In the War Against Men, armies of Gobdresh and Tordresh appear for the first time. Legend claims that these new creatures were created specifically to destroy the Hudresh, and they very nearly succeeded in doing so. Vast armies of Gobdresh and Tordresh swept down from the Western Mountains across the Northern Plains, laying waste to all Hudresh settlements they encountered. Had some among the Feidresh not chosen to come to the aid of the Hudresh, the War Against Men may well have succeeded in eliminating this race from Nuerth.
Many cities in the Alva'atan Valley succumbed to the invaders. Combined forces of Hudresh and Feidresh soldiers finally routed the invaders, many of which fled into the Cloudforest Mountains and the Alva'atan Jungle, where their descendants still live.
