{{For|a history of the specific Blights|Blight}}
   
With the fall of the Golden City and the beginning of the First Blight in -395 [[Ancient Age|Ancient]] (800 TE), a dark age descended onto Thedas as the darkspawn rampaged across the continent, destroying everything in their path. The Tevinter Imperium suffered greatly, becoming severely weakened and fractured under the strain of the invasion, while the subterranean empire of the dwarves was laid waste, with only their four major kingdoms Orzammar, [[Dwarf#History|Gundaar]], [[Dwarf#History|Hormak]] and Kal-Sharok surviving. After nearly a century of hopeless, unending war, the Order of the [[Grey Wardens]] was established at [[Weisshaupt Fortress]] in -305 Ancient (890 TE), and proved instrumental in the defeat of the Archdemon Dumat at the Battle of the [[Silent Plains]]. The darkspawn invasion had been beaten, but the darkspawn would retreat underground to rebuild and recover.

Over the centuries, four more Blights would occur, the latest occurring in 9:30 [[Dragon Age (time period)|Dragon]]. Each time, the Blight would be stopped with heavy losses, with the darkspawn destroying entire cities or even kingdoms before being beaten back by the nations of Thedas and the Grey Wardens. With the exception of [[Anderfels]], darkspawn appearances on the surface most frequently promote fears of a Blight, however this does not occur until an Archdemon is awakened by the darkspawn. Without an Archdemon leading them, darkspawn hordes are much smaller and less effective in the raids they often launch, but are still dangerous. However, that is not the case in the underground, as the dwarves have been constantly fighting a losing battle against the darkspawn for more than a millennium. This has resulted in the underground of Thedas being almost entirely controlled by darkspawn with the exception of what remains of the kingdoms of Orzammar and Kal-Sharok. Some thaigs have been recently reclaimed, but at heavy costs to the dwarves.
