The Great Tsunami.

The Rising of Orr occurred in 1219 AE when Zhaitan woke from slumber. Originally underneath the peninsula, he forced the sunken kingdom of Orr to the surface. Orr's resurfacing devastated the corsair fleets that were nestled in the islands above sea level, and caused a large tidal wave, known as the Great Tsunami by the tengu, that flooded the coasts of Kryta, the Ring of Fire Islands, and the Battle Isles, if not more. Most of the land that was hit by the tidal wave was simply reshaped, with new lakes and rivers forming and shores altered, but some islands, such as the Battle Isles, were submerged.
