Eras Defined

  • Period: By the Grace of the Gods
  • Period: Rise of the Tribes [light]
    • Event: Ssthar Betrayal [dark]
    • Event: Death of Orospeal [light]
    • Event: Blood of Orospeal [dark] [Keith]
      The flesh and blood of Orospeal decayed and seeped into the soil of (a region of) the Plains of Kresh, tainting the very earth and all who lived on it. The Ssthar turned from wise creatures of the earth to deceptive, secretive betrayers.
    • Event: Kresh’s Ceasing Hammer [light]
    • Event: The Walking Grove of Selrichi [dark] [Levi]
      Selrichi plants a grove of ephael trees to enhance her creative energies in this plane. An unexpected burst of amorphia forces Selrichi to embue the trees with sentience so that they survive, incidentally creating the first trolls.
    • Event: The Burdening [light]
  • Period: Birth of the Jesophs [dark]
    • Event: Temptation of the Toresh [dark]
    • Event: Surrendering the Sky [dark] [Andrew]
      Kavasa was Goddess of the Sky, shifting and tending it to care for the plane. She hated the mortals as vermin. As other gods increasingly doted on them, Kavasa spun the heavens in their patterns so they could continue without her guidance. She focused instead on using her magnificent art for illusion and deception, and she sold her services to gods and mortals alike.
    • Event: Wars of Manipulation [dark] [David]
      Hrundal poses as a mortal and becomes advisor to the Jesoph  Novinderai. The god manipulates Novinderai into fighting numerous bloody wars.

      • Scene: Battle of the Broken Spear [dark] [David]
        Hrundal convinces Novinderai the Chieftess Shaeleth wishes to destroy all Jesophs, and that Novinderai must defeat her to retain the blessings of the gods. Most of Chieftess Shaeleth’s people are killed and she must lead the survivors into hiding.
    • Event: The Kreshtar Rebellion [dark]
  • Period: Equilibrium [light] [David]
    After many years of fighting, the mortal populations are depleted and exhausted. Memories of the brutal battles compel the mortals to live in relative peace.

    • Event: The Frustration of Kavasa [dark] [David]
      Few mortals request the services of Kavasa, and so the goddess must plot more subtly against them.
  • The Coming Storm [dark]
    • Event: The Strange Light [dark] [Grey]
      For ten days, the sky is filled with a strange light instead of darkness, of no hue that can be described by mortals or gods. The stars themselves are dark specks against this backdrop. None of the gods can explain the cause of this. Worry starts to set in amongst the divine ranks, mortals start to lose confidence in the gods.


Alienation of gods and mortals.

  • Event: Razing of the Old Temples [dark] [Keith, after The Strange Light]
    After the abuses of the past and the failure of the gods, mortals sought new powers to follow. The old holy places became abandoned and fell into ruin as mortals sought out and petitioned other potential sources of power.
