The timeline of Dwagara is split up into three ages. The Old Age was a time long ago when the mortal races were first expanding across the lands and forming the first empires, such as the Corsec Empire and the Great Amber Empire. The New Age began after the Sundering. Modern dates are written in in reference to how many years it has been since the Sundering (such as year 3212 is 3212 years since the Sundering). The Third Age, or the Age of Now, began in 3435 at the completion of the Second Dark War when Azreal ascended to godhood. Modern adventuring occurs around 3468, 33 years after the start of the Third Age. Most scholars of Dwagara still use the Sundering as a reference point for dating, however, cults of Azreal or fervent opponents of Sith began reckoning days since the Third Age began.
The Old Age
- In the beginning, Dwagara is bathed in darkness. Dragons, titans and elementals rule and shape the world with only the flicker of the raw elements in the vast void of shadow.
- Archon shines the light of his sun upon Dwagara, creating the world in its habitable form for the mortal races.
The New Age
2703 – The kingdom of Loria, predecessor of New Loria, is founded.
2874 – The beginning of the Dwarf-Lorian war.
2931 – The end of the Dwarf-Lorian war when the humans and dwarves ally against the troll threat from the Green Vale.
3027 – Korden, Knight of the Rose, goes on a crusade to vanquish the evil werewolves of the Green Vale. He slays their chief and dons the chief’s helm, which turns out to be an evil artifact of Goth that corrupts his mind. Korden slays his silver dragon friend and mount and then gathers together an army of marauders, the nighthounds that terrorize Loria.
3049 – Dorgar’s Hall is founded.
3055 – The last vestiges of power of the Corsec Empire dwindle; it falls.
3058 – The beginning of the Second Dark War. The world is plunged into chaos and despair as Lorus and Sith send army after army against one another in what seems like an eternal feud foretold in the prophecies of the Book of the North.
3071 – Taer Drathen is founded.
3366 – Moonshadow’s population swells within the protecting light of Sir Darian Paleblade’s Talisman.
The Third Age
3438 – Azreal sends his demonic legions to destroy the Obelisk of Worlds in an attempt to thwart any further assassination attempts from Dwagara. Its destruction creates a cascade of changes throughout the planes, forever disrupting the cosmology of the universe. The demonic army continues its destruction in Ruun by heading to the Tabernacle of Delphi Trine where they crack the Moon Prism, disrupting the flow of magic in Dwagara. Casters across the world are forced to adapt to the radically altered arcane ways.
3439 – With the newly born Elemental Chaos, the volcanoes of the Red Mountains begin spewing far more than simple fire and lava, but rimefire and other hybrid elements. Elemental beasts of various types pour from the ancient portals to the former Elemental Plane of Fire and begin taking over countless forges and tunnels owned by the dwarves. Even Dorgar’s Hall falls to the elementals.
3442 – The Enchantress, the ruler of Seesay for the last 400 years, passes away. The Council of Nine are put in charge of the region at a desperate time when elementals constantly prey upon the villages and towns in the foothills of the Red Mountains and when sahuagin raids grow ever more fierce.
3460 – The Rot Lord surfaces in the Shadowlands and begins building an army of shadowfolk and undead servants. Shadowfolk that stand against him are massacred as an example. Hundreds flee to cities of the Moon Sea to escape this new tyrant.
3463 – The Unseen Emporer in Azi Hera, Land of the five Kingdoms, begins festering hatred and discord between the desert nations. Soon, the Kingdom of Mak le ah marches against Ra the an. Mak le ah is victories and the other kingdoms quake in fear as to what their next move is.
3468 – Modern day.
