The Pest was a cataclysmic pandemic event that took place in the Thokaian Empire in 1346 ADK.

At first, the Pest disease was caused by an infection spread mostly to humans by infected fleas that travel on rodents. However, the disease quickly spread to other carriers such as Food Rats, Timberflies, Plantipores and Rock Mice. The deadly plague devastated much of the Thokaian Empire, however some parts of the empire remained largely unaffected (the capital city Ansititum, and other remote parts).
