More than 38,000 known or suspected wizards met an untimely end due to the Mage Purges. While the worst purges ended after the first year of Amahl's reign, no wizard was safe from persecution, culminating in death at the hand of Shoon soldiers, for the remainder of the Imperium's days. "A minor uprising in the furthest frontiers of the Imperium" was how this event was described in Shoon histories and even those of later Calishite historians. This uprising was in fact a precursor of the Im- perium's fall and a serious and temporarily successful attempt by a subjugated state to resist Shoon rule.
Shaani had only four children (by her most prominent generals), and while she doted on them, she worried little about them when they were gone and married off to political allies in places like Amn, Tethyr, the Tashalar, or the city-states of the Lake of Steam.

Anyone bearing a weapon (and many who were not) was slain on sight. He then continued this mode of operations with the city of Kormul and the next five towns. The extreme loss of life during this campaign was avoidable, especially since the rebels surrendered after the fall of Kormul, but Sallah ordered his army to carve a bloody swath onward to the heart of where the rebellion had begun. The senseless death and destruction of property that ensued he considered far less important than the lesson it taught about the consequences of rebellion to the natives and others who might consider revolting against the Imperium.
