I'm posting this so that we will have this thread again under our attention. We need to settle these things, so my suggestion now would be that each of you should check it out again (the whole thread) and point to the appropriate changes/wishes or write some new ones. (last I remember, Coren, you were supposed to supply more western insights...)

This is what I have so far:

Humans – West

- 5800 b.S: Several human tribes (Note: The Aestera and the Lillivear are not part of this first immigration wave) of fierce nomadic horsemen escaping Menemronn’s armies populate the lands between Therrein Nermarein, Desert Kaerath, and the Valley of Orcal.

- 5700 b.S: The Exodus of the Aestera and the Lillivear end as the tribes arrive on the southwestern peninsula and start to settle in its tropical rainforests. The Lillivear establish their civilization south of the great mountain range, west of Rháásthár (the middle of the three gigantic rivers dividing the peninsula into four regions) while the Aestera claim the lands east of the great river.

- 5600 b.S: Ferocious battles between the Lillivear and the Aestera over Rháásthár (and thus, access to the western lands and southern jungles) exhaust both civilizations’ resources and weaken their border defenses.

A substantial wave of horsemen, after a disagreement with the main horde, floods south, settling all along the western slopes. For centuries to follow, they will send massive raids against the Lillivear from their western flanks. This tribe later takes on the name “Krár”.

The rest of the seven tribes, of which both the Aestera and the Lillivear were initially part of, arrive in the southwestern peninsula. The Qualaris and the Evalaris claim the northeastern woods, the Saroshar puts down strong roots on the coastal region southeast of these woods, the Viaquis rides all across the Aesteran realm to the forests of Daeinion Maneth, and the last tribe (the Arath) journeys west across Lillivear lands to colonize the westernmost shores of the isthmus. The Arath will in time fuse with the nomadic horsemen to form the main Krathrian race.

- 5500 b.S: After the unremitting invasions of the surrounding kingdoms the leaders of the Aestera and the Lillivear come to the mutual conclusion that neither of their beautiful realms can withstand the incursions without help. Thus, following the marriage of Kliám and Mseríá, the Pact of the Silent Wind is signed by the two leaders and with it the Twin Kingdom is born. In a matter of months, the combined armies of the two tribes manage to drive the intruders back to the edges of the Rhsáll River.

A group of Lillivear, under the leadership of Sálohár of the Bright, refuses to be part of the Krean and set forth west to bring into being a kingdom of knowledge, discovery and equality (later forming the continent’s first working meritocracy). They align themselves with the exiled tribes for protection in return for an annual tribute of provisions. These will later shape the first three Krath empires’ astute advisor ranks. They are referenced by contemporary historians as the Orihirim.

For unknown reasons, one of the horsemen tribes of the Nermarein plains rides north past the desert of Kaerath. Name or characteristics of the tribe are unknown.

Factions of nomads from Vaenath surge south into lands that will one day be called Anpagan.

5400-5000 b.S: The Era of Dawn
This age, known as the (First) Era of Dawn in western Nybelmar, marks the birth of the first Krean Empire: Orero Kreankra (‘United under the light of dawn’), the emergence of the Orihirim as a sovereign tribe, and the rise of the Krar.

~5400 b.S: The now united Aestera and the Lillivear from the First Krean Empire and within the century control more than half the peninsula.

~5400 b.S: The Orihirim form their first Council of Light, a significant step towards the creation of Tar Oria.

~5200 b.S: The Krar choose their first Káróth under whom all the bands unite. The Karoth begins a long chain of raids against the Krean that will persist for three hundred years.

~5100 b.S: The First Krean Empire loses territory to the unrelenting Krar invasions.


5000-4700 b.S: The Age of Poison
In this age the Lillivear discover how to extract the venom of the wild animals and flora found within their forests. The meticulous evolution of the poison industry for which the Krean will be renown starts.

~4900 b.S: The Krar raids are finally brought to a halt after all the clan chiefs are found dead in their command tents. The Krean use this assassination practice to keep Krar in line for another two hundred years. It is assumed that the Black Wardens and the first Krean spy network originated in this century.

~4700 b.S: Steered by Orero Kreankra, the Krar focus their raids on the Orihirim.


~4600 b.S: The Orihirim convince the Krar to protect their lands against the Krean. In return they supply the nomads leaders with antidotes against Lillivear poisons.

~4300 b.S: The First Krean Empire collapses and the Krean are forced to retreat deeper into their woods. More than a third of Orero Kreankra territory is lost.

~4200 b.S: With Orihirim counsel the Krar form their first kingdom, which soon develops into an early version of the Krath Empire.

Coren, Smith, have you looked at the new timeline discussion Art posted two weeks ago? Your early ages might have to be changed slightly.

I managed to finish the western timeline until the first Krean expedition into Zhun (which is btw moved to 2900-2700 bS). As soon as I type it, I will be posting the short-version tomorrow. Nonetheless, don’t expect the short-version to be ‘short’. I have taken out every unnecessary thing, but the text is still quite length. But please know that this is the rudimentary background that must be digested before anything more can be written or future history entries understood.

The Age of Myths (5500-3200 bS)

(2nd part)


- 4000 BS:
*Krar influence with the assistance of the Orihirim state, Tar Oria, expands towards the farthest reaches of Lillivear territory in the west. Their threatening presence also looms over most of the Arath realm. Numerous skirmishes between the Krar and the Arath take place in this century, resulting in a constant expansion of the Krar kingdom.

* The first Qualaris Councils as 2-3 city alliances surface.


- 3900 BS:
* The Qualaris Councils of the previous century merge and evolve into larger alliances, each now comprising around 4-5 cities.

*3897: The Krar move their capitol south to lay siege to the last great bastion protecting the wealth of the Arath coastline.

*3846: The Arath capitol falls.


- 3800-3700 BS:
* This century is marked by the birth of the 1st “Krath” (from ‘Krar’ and ‘Arath’) Empire. In time the Arath within the newly formed empire once again gain control over ongoing trade and infiltrate government bodies. A new line of Arath rulers will triumph over the Krar dynasty.


- 3700-3600 BS:
* The Krath Empire under the new Arath dynasty extinguished the last flame of resistance against the regime. One by one all former Arath provinces are brought under Krath rule.

- 3700 BS:
* The first Queenship of Evaquis appears.

- 3600 BS:
* Towards the final decades of this century conflict breaks between the two tribes, resulting in the collapse of the 1st Krath Empire. The civil war ends with the definitive victory of the Arath. The defeated Krar retreat northeast up to the mountains. Several Arath kingdoms mushroom in former Krath soil.

* Further calescence between the Qualaris Councils produce three major kingdoms south of Evaquis territory in the north-eastern woods. Other than occasionally uniting against the bigger Evaquis state out of necessity, relations between these three Qualaris kingdoms are tense, often giving rise to minor wars.


- 3500 BS:
* In the south of the Peninsula, numerous Viaquis rajas battle each other for more power and land.

* A similar situation exists among the Arath in the west.

* The Krean are very quiet in terms of military prowess in this age, avoiding any major confrontations. They do not take sides in any of the wars breaking in the outside world, preferring instead to further their trade relations with the other tribes. Their neutrality enables them to engage in business with even opposing states – not very infrequently supplying sophisticated poisons to both sides at once. Between selling vials of poison to one side and then selling their respective antidotes to the other (and then reversing the process) the Krean economy blooms. As they continue to expand their trade-empire and gain more and more control over the trade networks of the Peninsula, Twin Kingdom begins to prosper beyond imagination – much to the envy of the other tribes.


- 3470 BS:
A great war begins between jealous Viaquis states, with their eyes set on the fabled weatlth of the Krean, and the Twin Kingdom. Despite their best efforts (& most lustrous coin) the Krean cannot exploit the lack of unity among the Viaquis. Unable to set one raja against another and collapse Viaquis war-efforts from within, open war becomes too taxing on the Krean treasury, which has to hire the armies of neighbouring states to defend the southern border. Not even prodigious Krean vaults can hold against the inexhaustible population of the Viaquis. Krean economy enters a deep depression after this war, taking more than the breadth of a century to recover. Many historians say the Viaquis gathered enough loot in this war to bring about their Golden Age three centuries later.


- 3400-3300 BS:
* Waves of Krar armies come down on the unsuspecting Arath with crushing force. With the Orihirim operating overtly instead of manipulating from behind the scenes as usual, a horrible genocide is averted. With cajoling and where sweet words fail with force (though never lethal), intermarriage is arranged between the two tribes to avoid similar catastrophes from surfacing over ethnic grounds ever again. A new people, the Krathaszar, are born out of this rigorous effort. The Orihirim retreat into their realm, leaving only a rank of advisors with the newly-“forged” empire (II. Krath).

This is the first time the Orihirim openly display their power, remarked by many among them as the loss of their innocence. Rumours of strange creatures of energy seen amidst Orihirim ranks circulate the western reaches of the Peninsula. Oddly, the reports seem to suggest that these creatures appear to orchestrate the whole movement rather than serving the “light ones”.

* The first and for a very very very long time the only Krean request to enter Tar Oria is denied. This is the drop that precipitates the Krean enmity toward the Orihirim and open the chasm between the two tribes that will outlast the millennia to come.

- 3300-3100 BS:
* These two centuries witnessed the Golden Age of Viaquis.

- 3300 BS:
* Krath expands eastward, claiming former Krean territory conquered by the Viaquis. The Empire has now reached the centre of the Peninsula, flanking the Krean to the north and the Viaquis to the south.

* The first Sharosar Empire, known for its severe social hierarchy, elaborate rituals and drawling architecture, emerges.


- 3300-3200 BS:
* War continues with the Viaquis. The Empire also engages in frequent skirmishes with its new neighbour, the Sharosar, in the east.

* With the Viaquis threat removed and Krath reopening the trade cannals, the Twin Kingdom once again prospers – this time surpassing even its former splendour. New economic allegiances with the Krath Empire, the three Qualaris kingdoms and the Evaquis are forged.

* Towards the end of the century, war breaks between the Evaquis and two of the Qualaris kingdoms. The central kingdom remains neutral, acting as a staging point for Krean commercial envoys.


- 3200 BS:
* 3230: After a prolonged time of impasses (which is by far worse for the expansionist Krathaszar) Krath is forced to join forces with the Viaquis to form III. Krath – or perhaps more accurately the II. Viaquis Empire. The superiourly disciplined armies of Sharosar were also a motivating factor for the Krathaszar.

* The southernmost raja does not accept the new Krath-Viaquis (henceforward “Krath”) coalescence and breaks away, declaring his independence as the true heir of Viaquis legacy (hereafter “Viaquis”).


- 3230-3200 BS:
* A war over the trade routes breaks between the Evaquis and the Twin Kingdom. The Krean want to move fast and put Evaquis out of action before their monopoly over trade in the Peninsula is compromised.

* Taking advantage of the situation, the three Qualaris kingdoms unite around the central one and declare their neutrality to avoid being caught between two giants.

* The strengthened Krath Empire, still intoxicated by its swelling numbers, wages war on two fronts: the Krean to the north and Sharosar to the east.

* The Nightshimmer Legions of the Krean (Twin Kingdom’s new weapon) engage Sharosar forces in battle to stop the flow of much-needed supplied to the Evaquis Queendom writhing under the Krean embargo. A bigger nuisance the Krean hope to weed out before it has a chance to take root is the beginning of sea-trade between Sharosar, Qualaris and Evaquis kingdoms, which might potentially short-circuit the extensive web of land-routes the Krean have been running


- 3200 BS:
* Sharosar is forced to cease its alliance with Evaquis to focus on what it considers to be the great menace posed by Krath assaults – just as the Krean had planned.

* Instead of crushing the defeated Evaquis state under devastating terms, the Krean present a very agreeable treaty promising them partnership in peninsular trade. Twin Kingdom hopes to achieve their unwavering allegiance in the darkness of the years to come. Indeed from this point in history onwards the Krean and the Evaquis become inseparable allies.

* A similar treaty is soon signed with the anxious Qualaris government.

* The III. Krath Empire has very few Orihirim counsellors compared to its predecessors. The Orihirim, disapproving of the Viaquis alliance (finding them too chaotic and undependable) withdraw all their advisors. They leave only the one that will later be known as “the White Advisor” for the Karoth’s personal counsel.


- 3200-3100 BS:
* As anticipated, Viaquis-Sharosar sea-trade begins. Seeing the very real threat of their trade empire crumbling into pieces materialize over the horizon, Krean attacks against Sharosar intensify. The Evaquis, afraid losing a finally promising future before it even has a chance to begin, put all their power behind the Krean. It should also be born in mind that the strictly egalitarian, female-ruled Evaquis society could never have sided with the Sharosar Empire.

* What began as free trade soon solidifies into an alliance against Krath between the Viaquis and Sharosar.

* 3190: Subdued by threats from their southern neighbour, Sharosar, the Qualaris maintain their neutrality, turning down the many invitations to join the Krean-Evaquis coalition. 3180: The alliance has no choice but to move their combined army into Qualaris soil. 3170: The thoroughly defeated Qualaris surrender.

* Unfortunately when the Evaquis are busy with the resistance in the western regions, Krath launches an attack and burrows all the way across Sharosar to conquer one of the south-eastern Qualaris provinces. The Empire’s new neighbour in the northeast is a traumatized Evaquis.


- 3170-3100 BS:
* Instead of attacking Evaquis and waiting for the Alliance to respond, Krath directly wages war against the Krean-Evaquis-Qualaris triangle on all three fronts.

* The new Sharosar-Viaquis military alliance seizes this opportunity to invade Krath territory.

* The Empire reiterates by fuelling the conflict between Sharosar & Evaquis, diverting the resources of both away from its fronts. Krath hopes to shatter the fragile alliances before they get a chance to consolidate.


- 3100 BS: The Orihirim Enlightenment

- 3000-2900 BS:
* After a disastrous attempt to share their new found knowledge and utopic ideals in order to unite the tribes and bring peace to the Peninsula, we can see the beginning of Orihirim seclusion. By the end of the century, the Orihirim will have completely isolated themselves from the outside world.

* Sharosar and Krath secretly strike a deal. According to this, Sharosar will invade Qualaris, effectively separating the Evaquis and the Krean. Krath will then march into the isolated Twin Kingdom, whose wealth would be equally shared between the two empires.

* Krath betrays Sharosar when the Krean “join” the Earth League at the end of High Queen Lílýáshn Áérálvr’s reign. In return, the Krath Empire promises to eradicate the Vaiquis threat.


- 2970-2940 BS:
* When the last independent Viaquis raja is destroyed ten years later, the Krean agree to fully relinquish their sovereign rights. In the span of these 30 years (2970-2740) the “Earth League” formed between the Krathaszar, Krean & Viaquis transforms into the IV. Krath Empire, which now assumes the name “The Grand Empire of Earth”.

- 2940-2860 BS:
* Several dozen wars rage between Grand Krath and a Sharosar-Qualaris alliance.

- 2900 BS:
* 1st Evaquis expedition to Zhun takes place. To prevent Evaquis from having sole command over these uncharted rich lands to the north, Krath acquiesces to the Krean’s having autonomous colonies in Zhun.

- 2900-2600 BS:
* The Plains are a mosaic of Evaquis-Zhunite and Krean-Zhunite colonies. Contrary to Krath knowledge, the two Peninsular powers coexist peacefully. An underlying feeling of comradeship still exist between the Krean and the Evaquis.

- 2800 BS: The Krean Classical Age.

Ok, there is still more to come then. In the meantime I'll add this to the first post - I'm going to split it at 3200 because of the Dark Age.

We will need to come up with some themes/subthemes titles/subtitles, but not now. Let's just get it done first.

Once we have everything posted here, we should make separate entries at the history forum:

- Nybelmarian Timeline (not separated into races only chronologically + divided east/west)

Underneath that on the site we could have:

- The West
* the Elves
* the Humans
* the Orcs

- The East
*etc.

btw, Coren. Don't edit the first post because I'm gonna get confused. Or mark your edits with some color and then give me a signal somehow that you did that.

PS: I'm still waiting for your part up to the YoD so I can write the east.

PS2: Oh, and maybe we should start another thread for the rest of the timeline? That first post is huge.

PS3: If you need events with the Nermaren guys (perhaps a year for their "discovery"?) write them down.

No, I'm just saying that although it might seem like double work (posting the same thing twice) I would end up confused if we would use the edit feature and write our shares directly there.
