Desolations were events in the ancient history of Roshar.[citation needed]

Lore

Few is known about them except legends. Still those agree on some points.

Desolations came in cycles, they were regular in coming.Cite error: Invalid <ref> tag; refs with no name must have contentCite error: Invalid <ref> tag; refs with no name must have contentCite error: Invalid <ref> tag; refs with no name must have content During Desolations, the inhabitants of Roshar were attacked by an enemy force, generally called Voidbringers.Cite error: Invalid <ref> tag; refs with no name must have contentCite error: Invalid <ref> tag; refs with no name must have contentCite error: Invalid <ref> tag; refs with no name must have contentCite error: Invalid <ref> tag; refs with no name must have content The cycle of Desolations seemed somehow attached to the Oathpact.Cite error: Invalid <ref> tag; refs with no name must have content

The coming of a Desolation was announced by the appearance of the Ten Heralds.Cite error: Invalid <ref> tag; refs with no name must have contentCite error: Invalid <ref> tag; refs with no name must have contentCite error: Invalid <ref> tag; refs with no name must have content Also, the appearance of Midnight Essence was a sign for an upcoming Desolation.Cite error: Invalid <ref> tag; refs with no name must have content

One certain Desolation lasted eleven years.Cite error: Invalid <ref> tag; refs with no name must have content

Actually, at the end of what was called the Last Desolation, nine out of ten Heralds abandoned the Oathpact leaving only Taln to return to damnation, the place where the Heralds went between the Desolations. This led to a very long period of about 4,500 years without a Desolation.

When Talenel appeared at Kholinar, he announced the coming of the True Desolation.Cite error: Invalid <ref> tag; refs with no name must have content

Knights Radiant and Desolations

It was the duty of the Knights Radiant to stay vigilant and prepare themselves and mankind for Desolations, and to fight the Voidbringers when it arrived.Cite error: Invalid <ref> tag; refs with no name must have content

Vorinism

According to Vorinism, mankind fought the Voidbringers during Desolations ninety and nine times, before mankind finally won and drove them back to the Tranquiline Halls.Cite error: Invalid <ref> tag; refs with no name must have content That victory was later referred to as the Last Desolation.
