The Asgarthian Civil War also known as The War of the Griffins is an ongoing multi-sided civil war in Asgareth fought between the Asgarthian Military led by General Ako Perca, against several claimants to the Asgarthian throne and several resistance groups.
The war began following the Bombing of Asgar House on 28th March 2084, which resulted in the deaths of several key Asgarthian leaders including General Edmund de’Lance, the self-proclaimed Pharaoh of Origin. Hours later, the Battle of Shang Palace occurred, resulting in the death of Yulta Ross.
The war is being fought between multiple factions, including but not limited to; the Asgarthian military, Basok Alt’s loyalist forces, the Delvorni Independence Movement, the Shangese Movement for Independence, The Red Front, and three different factions led by different branches of the House of Ross. These various factions are backed by a variety of nations and governments including Skjoldur, Kaiserrealm and Greater Slavacia.
The Asgarthian military seek to maintain martial law in Asgareth, after it was instated by General de’Lance following the death of Daniel Ross. Both the Delvorni Independence Movement and the Shangese Movement for Independence seek autonomy for the Epiloan Islands and Isles of Archon respectively, and are in something of a loose alliance. The Red Front seeks to implement democratic socialism within the Empire. Meanwhile, Basok Alt, Leximus Ross, Yulta Ross and Regana Ross have all claimed the right to rule Asgareth.

Main Article: Battle of Shang Palace
Considered to be the opening act of hostilities in the civil war, the battle of Shang Palace in Strei-Ar saw the death of the strongest claimant to the throne of Asgar: Yulta Ross. It involved elements of the 20th Ground Force opposed by the palace guard. After several hours, all defenders were killed. However, Yulta's wife, Octavia Julia as well as her children escaped trough the passage. Some historians claim that Yulta's death was self sacrificial in nature, as he is said to have stayed behind to seal the exit with his body.
