The Sanguinesti Liberation War is an unofficial name given to a conflicts around which the Myreque quest series centres. The Sanguinesti Liberation War began some years ago when the Myreque were formed by a Meiyerditch rebel named Safalaan Hallow, and only recently have they gained world attention.

One of the war's most notable features is its lack of open military conflict. This was largely been due to the Edicts of Guthix, which Guthix has been using to prevent open international conflict. Also as the Myreque lacked an effective means of fighting the Vampyres, and the Vampyres did not know the locations of Myreque bases. The conflict gradually escalated though, first when Vanstrom Klause managed to trick an adventurer into aiding the Myreque. Vanstrom followed the adventurer and sicced a Skeleton Hellhound on the Mort Myre Order killing Sani Piliu and Harold Evans.

With their location no longer secure, Veliaf Hurtz requests the adventurer to help them move their operation to Burgh de Rott. However, the actions of the Myreque allowed the settlement to get noticed by Gadderanks and some juvinates. The adventurer fought them off. Before he died, Gadderanks passed along information on the weakness of juvinates, allowing to the rediscovery of Guthix balance potion and the Rod of ivandis. In addition, a route was opened up allowing the evacuation of residents of Burgh de Rott to Paterdomus.

The now Burgh de Rott order of the Myreque reestablished communication with the Sanguesti order who were making initial plans to move against Castle Drakan. But the Myreque was not strong enough, and sent the adventurer to request aid from Misthalin. It was also learned that Werewolves had a means of bypassing the River Salve to collect tithes. In response, King Roald issued the Mercenary protocol and could be escorted to the front lines in Morytania.

Despite the influx of adventurers, the Myreque still lacked a way of fighting Vyrewatch. A crude means was devised, the creation of the Ivandis flail and it was successfully tested against several Vyrewatch.

Vanescula Drakan eventually makes direct contact with the Myreque, offering access to a more powerful weapon against the Vampures: Blisterwood weapons. The adventure is able to infiltrate the Vampyre city of Darkmeyer, craft several Blisterwood weapons, and successfully assassinate Vanstrom and his pet Bloodveld Harold. Vanescula takes the opportunity to kill her brother Ranis Drakan and blame it on the Myreque.

The conflict reached full escalation when the Myreque attacked Castle Drakan resulting in the death of Lowerniel Drakan, and all of the Myreque but Veliaf, Safalaan, the adventurer, and Ivan.

After a skirmish at Paterdomus with 3 Vyrewatch and the adventurer removing the Zamorakian Order of Paterdomus from the temple, and finally an attempt to strengthen the River Salve, the Morytanian Army of Vampyres and Werewolves arrived. After a tense standoff that saw Vampyre Juvinates get turned into Feral vampyre and the arrival, and defeat, of the Wyrd, Vanescula and the Morytanian Army withdrew.

The adventurer eventually discovered the means of curing Vampyrism, requiring the blood of the Wyrd, which was found to have been a changed Safalaan. After defeating Wyrd Safalaan and mixing his blood, the cure was applied to the River Salve.

The Morytanian and Misthalian armies arrived at Paterdomus once again, but as Vanescula began sending Vyrewatch over the bridge, they were transformed back into humans. Wyrd Safalaan was also able to revert to his human form. As the Vyrewatch were unable to attack, the Werewolves refused to attack as well sensing weakness. Vanescula, facing mutiny and possible exposure to the effects of the river, called for a truce.

In the end, Safalaan and Vanescula begin ruling Morytania together.
