The first New Exalted March in 7:25 Storm proved successful. The [[Circle of Magi]] proved to be a great boon for the Chantry-led forces as they were able to effectively counter the Qunari's technology with their magic. Year by year, the Chantry was able to push further and further into the Qunari lines, although local converts to the Qun proved difficult to return to Andraste's teachings.<ref name="First Qunari War"/> Many Qunari artifacts were plundered at this time, including the [[Tome of Koslun]] which was taken by [[Orlais]] as a spoil of war.<ref name="p114"/>

However, the second New Exalted March that took place 27 years later in 7:52 Storm was a disaster. The Qunari countered by recapturing much of Antiva.<ref name="p114"/> During the same year, Treviso is burned by the liberating armies of the White and Black Divines.<ref>[[Codex entry: A Vessel of Tears]]</ref> A female [[Ben-Hassrath]] enforcer known only as "the Hawk" emerged as a legend throughout the course of these conflicts, and is credited with over a hundred kills with only a bow.<ref>[[Bow of the Beresaad]] description</ref>

The nations of [[Thedas]] found themselves in dire need of every ship they could muster against the massive power of the Qunari dreadnaughts. The [[Llomerryn]] pirates were faced with a hard decision: band together under one flag and fight with those they had previously preyed upon or face conversion and annihilation by the Qunari. Thus the [[Felicisima Armada]] was formed at 7:55 [[Storm Age|Storm]].<ref>{{Cite wot|115}}</ref>

In 7:56 Storm, the Qunari landed near Ostwick and launched assaults against [[Starkhaven]] and [[Kirkwall]]. Starkhaven prevailed, but Kirkwall fell due to the magic of the [[Saarebas]].<ref name="p118"/> The city remained under Qunari power until Orlesian [[Chevalier]] Ser [[Michel Lafaille]] liberated Kirkwall in 7:60 Storm. He found that most of the population had converted to the [[Qun]]. Kirkwall was incorporated into the [[Orlais|Orlesian Empire]], and Lafaille became the ruler of the city, named Viscount by the Orlesian emperor.<ref>[[Codex entry: History of Kirkwall: Chapter 3]]</ref>

The Felicisima Armada meanwhile had been using their stealth and trickery to plague Qunari supply lines. They have even launched several seaborne invasions against the Qunari coast. At 7:78 Storm [[Raiders of the Waking Sea|the raiders]] managed to defeat the Qunari in a massive naval battle and then take [[Estwatch]] from them, an island with strategic importance.<ref>{{Cite wot|120}}</ref>

The Third Exalted March was the most brutal of all. By this time, the war had drained the resources of every nation in [[Thedas]], leaving most on the brink of collapse. For the giants, it did not appear to be the damage to their armada or the loss of their soldiers, but the terrible toll upon the Rivaini population that prompted their retreat. The Third New Exalted March had all but massacred the people of Kont-aar: their last remaining stronghold left on the continent<ref name="p120">{{Cite wot|120}}</ref>, and all the while without even chipping the Qunari occupying force. For the sake of [[Rivain|Kont-aar]], the giants finally agreed to withdraw.<ref name="Llomerryn Accords">[[Codex entry: The Llomerryn Accords]]</ref>

The Exalted March ended in 7:84 Storm. A meeting between envoys of all the human lands (except for Tevinter) and the Qunari at Llomerryn results in the signing of [[:Codex entry: The Llomerryn Accords|the Llomerryn Accord]] and peace being declared.<ref>{{Cite wot|121}}</ref> The Qunari agreed to end all hostilities with all nations under the accord and returned to [[Par Vollen]] which was ceded to them.
