THE MYNIAN KINGDOM

The Mynian Kingdom (2040-1649 b.S.) was one of the greatest kingdoms of Northern Sarvonia. It lasted for nearly four hundred years against outside aggressors and internal strife. In the end it took a full invasion of the orcs, and an unprecedented natural phenomenon to destroy this empire. During its heyday it boasted of a superior army, an advanced government, and surprising cultural development for its day. Now the once glorious capital Vermoth has become Wea’vermoth (Ruined Vermoth), the great towers that gave it its name are all shattered, and the halls of the kings now crumble around the orcs who abide there. Out of all of this though remains the memory of this great empire, in both the myths of the Kuglimz, the Mynians descendants and in the races whose memories do not fade.

Location. The Mynian Kingdom was once located in the territory of today’s Losh-Oc orcs. That is, its southern borders went to the Quest River (a branch of the Luquador River, right below the town Worldquest) or a little beyond depending on various records. The western border extended to the Luquador River until the point that it flows into the shaded forest, from there the border is along the Shaded Forest until it hits the mountains. The northern border is just a distance beyond the Liben Delta, and the eastern border represents the Aelyvian Sea.

Coat of Arms, The coat of arms was originally just the symbol of the ancient human cavalry, a man in gray armor wielding a lance while sitting upon a brown steed all against a black background. This remained a national symbol of the people until the reign of the second king Riton (2035 b.S.-1978 b.S.) finished his traditional additions to the city of Vermoth. Upon finishing the heighest tower in the city he decided that the tower should be incorporated into the coat of arms. After some rather liberal redesigning the coat of arms became a golden tower with two grey lances in an “x” position behind it, all upon a black background.

Government. The government was very advanced for a human government of it’s time. It consisted of a king, a royal council, and eventually two wardens. The king was always a direct descendent of the famed Minar, and for most of the history held the final say in all matters. The council consisted originally of tribal leaders, later of town leaders, who gave the king advice and made sure that the needs of their own people were brought to the king’s attention. Later as the kingdom expanded the title “Warden” was created and added to the government. The wardens acted as the king’s justice and eyes for the further areas of the realm; namely the provinces of Liben and Luquador. The wardens were always members of the royal family.

Provinces. There were three separate provinces that made up the Mynian Kingdom. This breakdown allowed the better ruling of an expanding empire.

People. The Mynians were the cavalry troops and their camp followers that followed the cavalry general Minar after the fall of Fááv’cál’âr. After Minar’s death they devolved into a tribal system, though they still identified themselves as a single people and often worked together in such times as the War of the Chosen. It was this feeling of having a connected history and identity that later allowed Minar II. to establish the Mynian Kingdom. Once the people were forged into a group, they made a strong chain that was resistant to all that was thrown at them in a harsh world. They were a strong, determined people. Their prowress on horse was unmatched and that combined with their strong walls and flexible organization made them a rarity among humans of the north.

Economy, In the beginning of the kingdom's history it had great relations with both the Injerín elves and the Kurakim dwarves, and this led to a stable economy based on trade between the peoples. In the year 2000 b.S. after extended trade with the dwarven people, the Mynians used the dwarven system of currency and created their first coin. The exact nature of the trade is not known.

Time Table of the Mynian Kingdom

Age of Silence

Unknown
3400 b.S.
Only fragments and oral traditions tell of this ancient time. Cataclysmic wars, forced migrations, and time have destroyed all other records.
11900 b.S.
-11750 b.S.
The Great Sundering
After the destruction of Fav'cál'âr, and the ravaging of the lands, the races see that there is naught left for them and go their separate ways. This was a time of vast migrations, the splitting of peoples, and the population of large areas.
11895 b.S. Seperation of Humans
The human army splits into several different groups which go their own way. Minar, the head of the human army’s cavalry takes his troops, camp followers, and all who would go with him south of Fav'cál'âr.
11894 b.S. Foundation of Hate
While traveling south along the coast, the Mynians, as they are now calling themselves, come upon a delta that has been settled and fortified by a band of orcs. Knowing there is only death behind them and the Prominent Mountains, impassible to them during winter and on horse, to their side; they ask to be let through the encampment so they can continue south. The orcs refuse passage and opt for battle instead. During the course of battle, Minar’s only son Liben is killed. This causes the Mynians great grief as they have loved him dearly. Fueled by grief and rage, they decimate the orcish army and burn the town after they have passed through. The orcs flee north to the Wilshirer Heath, where they will wait and remember. Liben is buried where he fell, laid upon the weapons of those he has slain, and the Delta is re-named for him.
11890 b.S. Settling
Minar and his people settle in a fork of the Liben River, below the Shaded Forest. They set Minar up as their leader.
11881 b.S. Elven neighbors
A large group of elves wander into the area and take up residence in the Shaded Forest. Friendly, yet distant relationship is set up between them and the Mynian people.
11873 b.S. First Orcish Attack
A band of orcs from the Wilshirer Heath, known to the Mynians simply as the Heath Orcs, attack and burn some Northern outposts. Retaliation was swift, and the orcs were quickly dealt with. Small raids would be conducted back and forth between them for years.
11856 b.S. Minar’s Death
Minar dies of old age. By now his people have spread along the coast, and covered the plains. As there is no son, and daughters could not rule, people begin squabbling over leadership, until finally a civil war erupts.
11852 b.S. Tribal System
There is no decisive victory to the long civil war, and the people break up into separate tribes. Though they still consider themselves Mynians, they take new names for each tribe. They will not be united again for hundreds of years, and their history becomes lost, except for large events that are recorded by others.
9413 b.S. Battle of Goiyar’s Gap
During the beginning of the War of the Chosen, the Mynians triy to stay out of the conflict. Then an Archmage sends an army of orcs south to hamstring the unprepared Mynians. Once reaching Goiyar’s Gap, so named for the tribe who live in the area, they fall upon the tribe and all but decimate them. News of this reach the other tribes and for the most part they all pull together and rout the orcish army.
9411 b.S. Alliances
Seeing that they can no longer stay out of the matters, the different tribes all form alliances with each other. They are not united under one leader, but rather each chieftain was considered equal to another. At this same time the elves of the Shaded forest make alliance with the Mynian people.
9023 b.S. Battle of the Winds
The final battle of the War of the Chosen in the North, the Mynians along with many others march north, where the armies of both sides meet and are killed. Neither side completely wins, though the white mages seem to come out ahead. Not many of those who head north return.
9023 b.S.
-9000 b.S.
Years of Cleansing
With the death of the Archmages at the Battle of Winds, this makes it much easier for the combined races to throw off their shackles of servitude and “cleanse” the land of the remaining acolytes of human magic, and the last armies of the Archmages. These years are marked by the use of elven Xeuá magic, to heal the wounds the Archmages created. The Mynians have little to do with these efforts, as they are busy recuperating from the centuries of nearly constant war.

A time of seemingly mythical creations, the writing of the histories of the Gods, and a time of enlightenment.
3000 b.S.
-2097 b.S.
The Great Peace Pact
The elves of the Shaded Forest sign a peace pact with the humans that are living across the banks of the Liben river. These are the descendants of Mynar. Three years later the dwarves of the Prominent Mountains, the Kurakim, are accepted into this agreement as well. There is a unity between these three races for the first time since the necessary unity during the Years of Cleansing.
2066 b.S. Birth of Vortyr
Vortyr is born. He is the son of the chieftain of the most powerful Mynian tribe, the Morta.
2040 b.S. The Mynian Kingdom
Upon the death of his father, Vortyr takes his place as chieftain. He then re-names himself Minar II and proclaims himself king of a new Mynian kingdom, by being of Minar’s blood through Minar’s daughter Ylletoi. Many of the tribes and their leaders flock to him, those that oppose him are conquered within the year and made his subjects.
2039 b.S. Reaffirmation of Faith
One of the first things that Minar II does, is personally visit the elves of the Shaded Forest and the dwarves of the Prominent Mountains. The elves instantly loved him for his reason and love of nature, and even the stubborn dwarves find themselves swayed by his consuming charisma.Thus the alliance is made even stronger.
2038 b.S. Building of Vermoth
Realizing that to keep his kingdom whole, he needs a central seat of power and government, Minar II commences the first building of Vermoth, the capital city of the Mynian Kingdom. Over the city’s history it becomes the tradition for a new king to add a wall or tower. It soon develops to a massive city and is called Vermoth the Many Towered. It is a conglomeration of architecture as both elven growers and dwarf masons are used along with human builders. It is said that some of the towers are so tall, that one can see from one end of the kingdom to another, though this must be an exaggeration as the kingdom stretches in the hundreds of miles.
2036 b.S. First Official Historian
Minar II laments one day that there is little or no knowledge of his people, and he fears that one day he and his people will be completely forgotten. So he eventually establishes the rank of historian for his court. Arguran is the first to hold this post.
2035 b.S. Birth of Riton
Minar II's firstborn arrives, he is named Riton and an immense festival is held. One of the largest gatherings recorded takes places. Elves, dwarves, and men feast in joyous celebration. Many gifts are brought and given. From the elves, gorgeous manuscript in gold ink so Minar's son will have knowledge, and a budding sapling so he will have love of nature. The dwarves bring precious gems, so he will have riches, and a magnificent ax, so he will have prowess in battle. The king gives his son a song, so that he will always be remembered, and finally a horse is given, so he might always know whence the power and pride of his people comes. The celebrations last for one full week, and help tie the realms even closer together.
2032 b.S. Three Bridges
With the finishing of Vermoth, Minar II commissions three bridges to be built, so that all may have access to the great capital. One is built on each side of the fork of the Liben River; the third is built near the mouth of one of the tributaries that flow into the Aelyvian Sea.
2018 b.S. Courier System
Minar II institutes a royal courier system. This allows all-important documents to reach their destinations much faster. These same couriers are also used doubly as informants. They will keep an eye on people and places he cannot get to, or he cannot afford the time to see.
2015 b.S. Ascension of Riton
Minar II steps down as king and hands the throne over to his son Riton.
2011 b.S. Political Changes
Riton works closely with his father and several chieftains to change governmental procedure. No longer do the separate tribes need to be watched closely. All are fully integrated into the kingdom, and love both Riton, and Minar II. Thus, a few of the old chieftains, and several new are put together into a council to help the king watch over the kingdom and give advice on matters of state.
2008 b.S. Garrik and Kressin
Riton’s wife gives birth to twins, Garrik and Kressin.
2001 b.S. Death of Minar II
Minar II dies of old age. The Mynians, elves, and dwarves build a large tomb in co-operation, as they all loved him.
2000 b.S. Stable Currency
Due to increased trade with the other races, a stable currency is needed. In following of the dwarf tradition, a coin is used. On one side is stamped the face of Riton, and on the obverse the tomb of Minar II.
1997 b.S. First Sea Port
With the success of the coinage and trade with other races, Riton builds a large port on the Aelyvian Sea. He has a difficult time convincing any of the Mynians to learn to sail the ships that he has built. With reluctance he realizes that they are a land-based people, and he puts off any further attempts at trade or travel by sea.
1990 b.S. Ascension of Garrik
Amidst much debate, Riton steps down as king and hands over the throne to his son Garrik. This enraged Kressin, as he has always wanted the throne and feels it his right, as he is the firstborn. Garrik tries to abdicate, but his father does not allow it.
1978 b.S. Riton Sets Sail
Riton, still harboring a love of the sea and convinced that the Mynians can sail just as well as they ride, sets sail from the harbor he has built. Not too far off of the coast, his ship hits a rock and sinks. All hands on board die. The harbor is then abandoned, but Garrik leaves some people there to keep it as a shrine to his father.

1967 b.S. Kressin’s War
Kressin, along with some of the tribes that he has befriended rise up and claim Kressin as king. As Garrik no longer has an heir and Kressin now does, the situation splits the people. A civil war has begun. The elves and dwarves stay out of the war, as they feel it is an internal problem that the Mynians have to work out themselves.
1966 b.S. Birth of Raskin
A little over a year into the war Garrik’s wife bears him another heir. His name is Raskin. This sways many of the people to switch sides over to Garrik’s side. It is too late for Kressin though it is the beginning of the end for his claim.
1965 b.S. Kressin’s End
In a final battle at Kressin’s stronghold in the foothills of the Prominent Mountains, his fortress is stormed and both he and his heir are captured. Both are killed, so as to insure that the war will not be restarted. The tribes that have sided with Kressin yield to Garrik and acknowledge his sole kingship.

1937 b.S. Birth of Buitre
Raskin’s son Buitre is born. It is rumored that his wife gives birth to twins, and he has the one that comes out second killed. Though the commoners whisper this, none dares say it to him, for he is a hard man that still feels wronged by past events.
1917 b.S. Buitre’s Ascension
Upon Buitre’s twentieth birthday, the people clamor to have him take the throne, as he seems a kinder man than his father. For several months Raskin ignores the murmurs of dissension.

1824 b.S. Wider Crack in Treaty
On his way back to Vermoth, Weil encounters a joined army of dwarves and elves. They have heard of the problems and come in response. This only angers Weil, as they are too late. He says they haven’t seemed to be able to help the Mynians once since the treaty has begun. There are then harsh words between the dwarves and the humans. All part with the treaty intact, mostly due to the efforts of the aged Diedre, but with hostility on all sides.

Thus, Nigor’s line of the Royal Family dies. Torn by sorrow Sioned steps down from his position. King Luria has no choice but to appoint Cordel, son of Artek Warden of Liben, as the Warden of Luquador.
1730 b.S. Royal Rift
The difference in age between Luria and his cousins has always put some distance between them, now however there was a palpable tension. With the power of the throne seemingly going to the Wardens and away from the king, giving his cousin Artek and his son Cordel power, only widens the rift to a point of an impossibility of closure.
1728 b.S. Death of Artek
Upon the death of Arek, Cordel with the agreement of the council and the objection of the king places his eldest son Ferelli as Warden of Liben, and he will watch over it in his stead until he comes of age.

1656 b.S. Royal Procession
Surian, knowing the lack of power that the king has decides to go on a royal procession throught the land. It lasts one full year as he stops and speaks at every village and to every tribe.

1651 b.S. Death of Ferelli

Age of Chaos

1650 b.S.- The record of this age officially starts with the rise of the Gouran (devourer). However, the full effects of this Age do not start until 1649 b.S. during the Year of Darkness, better known among the Mynians as the Burning Night.
1649 b.S.
Córt’ometrá
The Burning Night
It is said that when Aváth’c earns her name "Gouran" by destroying Parthenon, Coór looks down on her with favor. He marshals his powers and lends her his support. The sun becomes hidden from view, and he tells those that bear his mark, the black shard, to bring chaos to the land. Countless torches, buildings and bodies are set alight in the name of chaos. Thus does the Burning Night come to pass.
1649 b.S.
Alé'veván
Fall of the Mynians
With the orcs forced to move south, they soon come against the humans of the Mynian empire. The strength and courage of these men during those dark days become legendary. For months they stem the flood of orcs and goblins, but in time they are simply overwhelmed. Their borders are soon overun and their great city Vermoth is put to the flame, so the orcs cannot have it.
1648 b.S. Rising of the Sun
With the destruction of Tak’Dinal and the death of Gouran at her own father’s hand, the sun is seen to rise again. This gives the broken Mynians hope.
1649 b.S.
-1641 b.S.
The Long Trek
Some of the orcs set up a stronghold in the foothills above ruined Weavermoth, while many of the others pursue the Mynians. Thousands are caught near the coast as they try to flee and are hacked down, leaving bodies and bones covering the beaches and land. This later causes the area to be named the Skeleton Coast. Those not caught here flee inland.
1641 b.S.
-1601 b.S.
The Kuglimz
Ten men who have taken it upon themselves to see that some of their people survived lead those that fled inland. These men and those that follow go their separate ways as disagreement or flight necessitated. These survivors of the once glorious empire will eventually lose remembrance of what they are, for none have time to bring scrolls or books of knowledge with them in the haste of their flight. These people will become known as the Kuglimz ("tribes").
