Age of Myths

  • Magnifide has been created from primordial substances by an unknown force.
  • The first race rises from the sea to transform the planet as they see fit. The occasional fights between individuals of that race are said to be so magnificent and devastating that every war from the future races pales in comparison to a single duel, both in scale and in duration.
  • After nearly destroying the planet with their duels, the first race creates the guardian of Magnifide, Menos Portrait.png Menos. Soon after his creation, Menos discovered that the mere existence of the first race would break the planet apart over time, even if they actively work together to prevent that.
  • Upon hearing Menos' warning, the first race ascends to create their own dimensions while leaving behind the Seed of Procreation so the damaged planet may recover.
  • The Seed of Procreation lands on the great continent of Culandan.
  • The Seed of Procreation inspires the majority of mortal races on the planet to join forces and create the first, primitive civilizations. They were short-lived, but set the founding for the first empire in the future.
  • The first Treants rise, form the Glade of Origin around the Seed of Procreation and become the guardians of said seed. Future Treants will move farther away from the Glade of Origin to become guardians for the forests they'll inhabitate.
  • Several millenias after their ascension, when a multitude of races have developed on the planet, the first race began to bless entire races and individuals as they see fit, grouping together to pantheons when they share interest in the same race and starting to call themselves gods.
  • When the souls of the mortals that have died during the millenias began to amass and disturb Menos, the gods decide to guide the souls to their own dimensions where they are given a second, immortal life of honorable servitude and bliss.
  • The Zeréans become the first dominat force after the ascension of the gods, uniting races under their wings and creating a vast empire centuries before the humans would repeat this feat. The dawn of humanity, coupled with their unwillingness to adopt the humans to their empire, ultimatively lead to a long, drawn-out civil war between the Zeréans and the other races.
  • The Kodai reign for many centuries in the background, only interfering indirectly with the other races. They embraced the dawn of humanity and created many obstacles to test them.
  • The Skalides built ships strong enough for long-term seafare and travelled around, eventually completely emigrating from Culandan to a new continent, Thuryel.
  • Matron, a Kodai who separated from the other Kodais, founds the Order of Assassins together with some other Kodai she convinced. In exchange for souls, which fuels the order's "Immortalizer"-machines, they would execute high-profile targets.

Rise of Ethernight

  • Thessalac Solsworn finds a prism made of True Light. A few years after, he ursurps his master Sjantir Cliffstorm and, by extension, the Throne of Bones.
  • The humans, becoming stronger thanks to the Kodai's trials, begin to unite their many clans under the banner of the Solsworn, creating a second empire over time while uniting the many races that were against the Zeréans who became more zealous and destructive during the civil war.
  • At some point, the Seven Deadly Sins have been gathered by the empire and been banished, which accidentally gave them power.
  • Thessalac passes away just a few years after the foundation for the empire of Ethernight. Some sources claim he went mad and had to be dispatched, other sources say he had been murdered by his own daughter, Galdra.
  • Being pleased with the development of humanity, the Kodai who aren't part of the Order of Assassins decide to hibernate in their Grand Temple.

The Demon War

  • Groups of demons, having been mostly dormant before, become very active at the same time, causing discord and destroying most of the empire back then.
  • Vamos Portrait.png Vamos swore the demons his allegiance and became a nigh-immortal Fel Ork himself in the process.
  • The Zeréan empire, being already weakened by the civil war, has been wiped out in the process and the few survivors decided to create Celestial Island and call it their new home.
  • Jashom Thornwhisperer has been blessed by the entirety of the Ethernightian pantheon of deities (confirmed by a single priest) and uses his blessing to gather men and women from every race on the continent, including Treants and those races that were usually hostile to Ethernight at that time. A transcript even mentions a Kodai among Jashom's group, although this transcript has been declared as a fake by most historians. (Those who don't assume the Kodai to be the "glorious shade" that has been mentioned several times in the history)
  • Jashom's group, now known as Magnifide's Spear, began defeating demons in quick succession. More people joined his group, even the Emperor Drumal Solsworn (who would sadly be captured and killed by demons).
  • Gorippas Portrait.png Gorippas flees after creating the Sanguine Axe item.png Sanguine Axe.
  • The Demon War ends with Magnifide's Spear being victorious. Most demons get banished to the man-made Duskrealm.
  • Matron got killed by a Temple Kodai in the aftermath of the war. Crona Portrait.png Crona swears revenge and begins to take over the mantle of Matron.
  • The Seven Deadly Sins are drawn towards the Duskrealm, indirectly helping the demons to adapt to the realm while transforming them. Over time, the Sins will awake one after another in their physical form.
  • Polenri Portrait.png Gluttony awakes.

Era of Prosperity

  • The Ethernight empire recovers quickly after the war and becomes even bigger than before.
  • Empress Zana funds an expedition to aquire as many magical spells as possible. Initially, this was to make herself immortal, but after seeing what are called the Forgotten Books, she instead decides to seal said books away in the Forbidden Library and sealing the library itself by infusing the Solsworn throne with her blood. The process of infusing her blood turns out to be fatal and her son Daranuis becomes the next Emperor.

The Forest's Uproar

  • Treemor Portrait.png Treemor rallies other Treants and the loyal folks of the forests to wage war against the empire.

  • Wrath awakes, but his physical form is too weak for now.

The Morock Incident ("The Pandamonium")

  • Searching for a strong body to possess, Wrath whispers to the Panda Warlord Morock for many nights.
  • Finally breaking down, Morock starts to steal land and resources from the empire with his private troops consisting of riflemen, metalwalkers and flamethrowers. Despite being much smaller in number, Morock's army scores many victories thanks to the vastly superior technology the Pandas are known for at the time, even compared to Zwergen technology back then.
  • Within a few years, Morock established a Tyranny to create even greater wargear, keeping non-Pandas as slaves and executing rebels swiftly. The empire was fighting an uphill battle and suffered casualities comparable to the Demon War.
  • One day, Morock leads a battle where his Energy Armor malfunctioned, allowing the imperial army to capture and execute him. Shortly after that, the Pandas surrendered and freed the slaves. Several scrolls mention a "glorious shade" who may or may not be responsible for the malfunction.
  • Disappointed and strained by his actions, Wrath slumbers for the next two centuries.
  • The Pandas resigned to a group of mountains that was of no greater interest for the empire, becoming a part of the empire. They swore to never use higher technology again so that the atrocities of Morock shall never be repeated again.

Era of Wealth

  • The empire expands even further and even creates settlements on a small number of bigger islands and newly-discovered continents, including Thuryel. Those settlements bring new materials and riches to the empire, but are otherwise unremarkable.
  • A necromancer revives a skeleton who happens to be Thessalac Portrait.png Thessalac. Thanks to the prism of True Light, he isn't bound to the necromancer and instead slays him, for he is also possessed by a demon.
