The Odyssey of the Sand, officially known as the Sandstorm War, was a major event in the history of the Sea of Sand of Koldenwelt which marked a sociopolitical uprising within Khaepsha-ultan incited by an internal faction - the Southern Revolution - and a combined offensive from exterior powers, including the likes of the Merovar Dynasty and Mivtzar. The conflict is noted for the foundation of the Transcendent Pact - the combined forces of Khaepsha-ultan, Asemath's Loyalists, and Volim's Legion -, the Allied Offensive - the combined forces of the Merovar Dynasty, Mivtzar, and the Southern Revolution -, and the Second Khaihari Dominion - the unified forces of the Drifting Tribes with Mivtzaran support.

The event was known to have posed a period of calamity for the population of Sand Drakes due to their hunting by the order of the Transcendent Pact for unofficial reasons and potentially endangering the species as of 33 NA.
