A Brief Timeline of Life in Allumisia
Y.A. 0: The First Dawn – Sentient races are given life and propagate out into the world
Y.A. ~125: The First Rift – Half of the population of Knaxranox leaves over a disagreement, and travels north along
the great river vitos to found the town of Segium
Y.A. 150-300: Population continues to grow and flourish, spreading across the continent to found new settlements
Y.A. 308: Early mages and sorcerers discover well of arcane power at Lake Mystuum, found the Arcane University at Acyrna to contain and study the power
Y.A. 325: University Mages at Acyrna stumble upon a crossing into the Feywild and create a portal – many eladrin and drow elect to migrate to this new world, few other races feel such a pull
Y.A. 407: Plague devastates the dwarven population in Knaxranox, eventually spreads to other races. The city is all but abandoned for over twenty years as the citizens flee. Remaining dwarves found Bardeholm, isolated deep in the Rosham Mountains.
Y.A. 450: Civilization begins to trickle back toward the Vitos river delta, at Erathis’ subtle urging. The city of Tyre is founded on the desolate ruins of Knaxranox.
Y.A. 560: Gabriel of the Woods founds the Golden Empire in Tyre. With the help of Acyrnan magic, his flying strike teams quickly subdue all the independent city-states of Allumisia
Y.A. 600: Emperor Gabriel of the Woods’ tenure is cut short by four halfling assassins in the dead of the night. The Golden Empire crumbles overnight as Gabriel’s two advisers grapple for control, forming Geador and Escardona. The Great War begins.
Y.A. 601: An arcane blast during a mage battle west of Segium sends an arcane backlash into the city of Myrrth, utterly destroying the city and desolating the nearby lands.
Y.A. 602: Escardonian forces over-extend their assault into the Great Forest, and Geador achieves a decisive victory deep in the woods. Escardonian military strength is roughly halved, and can no longer muster enough forces to assault the fortified city of Tyre. With their ultimate goal out of reach, Escardona agrees to sign a ceasefire treaty with Geador, giving up the riches of the Vitos delta and all territory east of the Vitos.
