History

Some of this is taken from the "default" setting information from the 4th edition DMG / PHB / MM with some of my own and anything the players feel like adding in from their own characters.

Known History

  • About 15,000 years ago: the world was created by the High Gods.
  • About 14,000 years ago: The world shifts, splitting into the regular world, the Shadowfell, and the Feywild.
  • {stuff of ancient legends}
  • About 9,000 years ago: the war between the Tieflings of Bael Turath and the Dragonborn of Arkhosia. The world falls into dark ages
  • {stuff of slightly less old legends}
  • About 4,000 years ago: The Calling of the Eladrin for the Feywild.
  • About 1500 years ago: The rise of the human empire of Nerath. This empire stretched over almost all of the continent the players start on (beyond the peninsula of Kend). While the Emperor and High Nobles were human, other races were welcomed into the fold as equals, leading to a fairly egalitarian mixing of races across the empire.
  • About 500 years ago: The fall of the empire of Nerath. Areas of the empire break apart from their neighbors and fend for themselves.
  • About 300 years ago: The kingdom of Melsper is "officially" established as General Borges declares himself King Atherol the First. He sets up his capital in the city of Mildenhall.
    • Neighboring kingdoms (Crandur, Gultro) lay claim to other areas of Kendish peninsula.
  • About 150 years ago: the dwarf inhabitants of the Heartthrust mountains break away from Gultro, forming the Free Vales.
