The Kharidian Desert Campaign is an unofficial name given to a prolonged period of battles and skirmishes that occurred during the late Third Age as part of the cataclysmic God Wars. The Campaign was amongst the most violent and devastating of the God Wars, and saw some of the most intense conflict of the period.
Unlike the rest of Gielinor, the Kharidian Desert managed to avoid most conflict during the first 3,000 Years of the God Wars. It was only during the last thousand years of the Wars that primarily Saradominist and Zamorakian military forces began to invade the region searching new land and resources. Although the forces that entered the region initially focused mainly on fighting each other, the native Menaphite people were often slain in the battles and eventually became the direct target of mainly Zamorakian hostilities.
The Campaign saw a massive decline of the Menaphite civilization and further destabalization of the Menaphite Pantheon. Virtually all existing Menaphite civilization was wiped out during the Campaign, including ancient cities such as Uzer and Ullek. However, Sophanem managed to survive the wars and so did Nardah which was established during the campaign.
- Northern Kharidian Desert Campaign: Zamorak's united forces raze the north of the desert, before splitting up and marching both south and east.
- Battle of Uzer: The Elder Demon Thammaron's forces attack the city of Uzer, but are ultimately defeated when Thammaron falls to the attacks of a Golem and the remainder of the army is hunted down by the Mahjarrat Azzanadra
- Battle of Ullek: Demon Balfrug Kreeyath assaults Ullek, the most prosperous city in the southern desert and razes it to the ground.
