The Second Age lasted two thousand years. It was separated into two halves. The first thousand years consisted of wars between Elves, Dwarves, Treents and Men, until the Nether War broke out for the second thousand years. This galvanized the Realm and had all the races of Vasten working together, until the Battle of Talatol. The Second Age ended with the conclusion of the Nether War. The Realm of Vasten was left in utter shambles, taking generations to start the rebuilding process.
