The War Of Elves And Trolls
How can trolls invade and conquer the Faerie realm in Europe without European human beings noticing any of the conflict? They do notice something:
a brazen clangor;
murrains on livestock;
trampled, bloody fields;
half-seen ravens eating inhuman corpses.
People call on their gods who, of course, protect Midgard from the worst excesses of the elves and trolls. For the most part, human life is unaffected. In that sense, this is something that could have happened long ago.
