The War of the Hart (not to be confused with the War of the Harts) was a battle that took place between Hartkiller's human and giant-kin armies and the giants.[1]

It took place many hundreds of years before the 14th century DR. Hartkiller eventually forced the giants to leave the valley of Hartsvale, but he was killed by a storm giant at the end of the war.[1]

After the conclusion of the war, a purple misty apparition visited the giants, warning them that they were rejecting Annam All-Father's will by refusing to comply with Hartkiller, that the humans in Hartsvale survived as a punishment to the giants, and that Annam was destined to return when a new king emerged from Hartsvale to restore the kingdom of Ostoria.[1]
