Around 1280 after Salmakhamer, Medibgö sent several groups of colonists to the Rhaunve River Valley to gain control over this rich agricultural land and reduce population in the skynesses. At this time, the power of the Yophenthean Successor States in Pytharnia had waned and could not offer the Medibgóëse organized resistance. Most of the Medibgösk colonists were passing magic-practitioners. Nearly none were accomplished wizards. The Amalgubiog Rebellion, 1273 to 1281, had seen the end of the Kwäsgö Dynasty and the establishment of the Gnas Dynasty.

Ybawvrach the Sharp

The son of a Medibgösk brabam, Ybawvrach the Sharp (1257 to 1303) fell into disfavor with his father and the imperial court. He was popular with the young nobles, but a mediocre wizard. He was commissioned to lead the colonization of the Durrhaunve in the late thirteenth century along with other aristocratic Medibgösk houses. He was known for a very quick and stinging wit.

The Indentured

Some of the colonists were debtors who had taken on a large debt or had defaulted. They were obliged as part of the settlement to labor for nine years before their debts were erased. These persons constituted a significant portion of the colonists, but were less than half.

Gonfalese Language

The Gonfalese language is thus about fifteen centuries old and younger than the neighboring human languages of Asbardian, Dúrandworese, and Pytharnian. Late Yophenthean was spoken in the lands where Gonfalese prevailed and thus Gonfalese has many borrowings from the Ambrasian Language in contrast to Medibgóëse that has fewer which are mostly limited to law and religion. Gonfalese derived from early Middle Medibgösk. Gonfalese itself is divided into two periods, early Gonfalese (1300 to 1900) and Modern Gonfalese (1900 to present day). Gonfalese borrows nearly half its modern lexicon (vocabulary) from the now extinct Ambrasian Language. Numerous idioms and borrowed language structures also exist in Gonfalese.
