An ancient bas relief from Supprozad representing a dridder queen

Compiling the recent history of Felarya is a huge task, and large portions of it remain in the dark. The ancient past is all but impossible to assess, the truth being buried under the weight of time and countless legends. After decades of patient work and research, a group of mages managed to establish a basic timeline of events (oddly enough, they were helped by some fairy scholars in what remains a most unusual and rare cultural collaboration between the two races). The help of the Majuras elves was also invaluable in that regard. Without their steady recording of the events of the past, the Felaryan history would be as consistent as mist. The time on this continent of Felarya is calculated based on the fall of Ur-Sagol, believed to have taken place some 2068 years ago.

Under construction - Order of event NOT definitive at this point.

Pre-Sagolian times (B.U.)

The ancient Age

Very little is known about this Era and any attempt at putting dates on it seems pointless. Events listed there are deeply uncertain and didn't happened necessarily in that order. To this day, the creation of Felarya itself remains a complete mystery for historians.

  • Creation of Felarya - unknown times
  • ? B.U. - What will become known as the Malyra Fen is separated from the Ixtapal marshes, trapping ancient fauna and cultures there.
  • ? B.U. - Sentient species start to emerge and to organize themselves.
  • ? B.U. - The Palace at Mount Vylkren is sculpted for the first Lava King. Other elemental palaces are suspected to have been built around this time but are so far undiscovered, or were later destroyed.

The Corrector War

In that age, Felarya became the focus of attention of powerful and mysterious entities calling themselves the Correctors. The exact reason of their hostility remains obscure but they were hell bent on the total destruction of Felarya

  • 12 000 B.U. - The Correctors first appear on Felarya and begin their attack.
  • 11 900 B.U. - The Correctors deploy powerful weapons such as their dreaded Obliterators and unleash a rain of destruction on Felarya.
  • 11 600 B.U. - Guardians suffer casualties with several of them being either killed or turned into "greys", becoming obedient and mindless slaves of the enemy.
  • 11 480 B.U. - The Titan Alcazath is created by the Guardians. This loyal soldier is unaffected by the mind-altering powers of the Correctors. Alcazath start creating an army of Titans, shaping them with the Derjakanör, the great Hammer of Creation.
  • 11 100 B.U. - A particularly violent assault from the Correctors ravages a part of Tolmeshal forest which will become known as the Miragia forest, a zone famous for its instability even up to this day.
  • 10 960 B.U. - The Titans inflict a severe defeat on Correctors during the "Grey Dawn battle".
  • 10 950 B.U. - Alcazath starts acting erratically, to the worry of his allies, the Elemental Kings.
  • 10 900 B.U. - The new Titans shaped by Alcazath are becoming more and more monstrous in appearance. Tensions are quickly rising with Elementals, with Alcazath finally turning on them.
  • 10 860 B.U. - The Guardians intervene and order Alcazath to give back his Hammer as a sign of submission to their authority. Alcazath refuses and order his forces to prepare for war agaisnt their former masters.
  • 10 720 B.U. - The Correctors seize the opportunity of that infighting to intensify their attacks. Many believe they were in league with the Titans at this point.
  • 10 680 B.U. - The Battle of the Blind King occurs. It is said to have lasted for a single day of extreme violence, with every camp throwing all they had into the fight. It ended with a decisive victory of Felarya over the Correctors. Alcazath dies during the intense fighting, struck down by Demedrios - a famous centaur warrior of the times. The Correctors leave Felarya, never to come back again.
  • 10 672 B.U. - Alcazath is sealed away in a tomb underneath the Jadong temple. Some believe Derjakanör has been sealed with him, others claim it was destroyed afterwards. This marks the end of the War with Correctors.

The Era of Mirages

What was called the The Era of Mirages is a long period after the war with the correctors where Felarya slowly recovered from the enormous damage it received. It was a time of great uncertainty with countless anomalies, vanishing lands, flickering landscapes and dimensional storms that occurred all over the land because of how unstable it had become.

  • 10 670 B.U. - The Era of Mirages starts after the end of the War, and will last for 3000 years.
  • 10 410 B.U. - The zone now known as the Akaptor desert is covered by a gigantic and shimmering dome of chaotic and wild energies, constantly shifting and twisting. Anyone trying to enter disappears forever.
  • 10 370 B.U. - The Great rocky fields becomes a very dangerous zone, ravaged by a strange phenomenon called "waves of anti-reality" or dimensional tide. Walking there when they occur is very unhealthy and would lead to often deadly but interesting effects, like having parts of your body transformed into something, losing your shadow or becoming perfectly flat. Fairies become very concerned by the impact of that phenomenon to their land.
  • 10 110 B.U. - The sky of the Sunfall thicket becomes separated from the rest of Felarya, apparently forever stuck into another dimension.
  • 9 810 B.U. - The dimensional tide increases considerably, leading to an exodus of creatures to the east. The fairy kingdom itself is threatened.
  • 9 780 B.U. - With the help of the Earth Elemental Queen Thanjayuur, the guardian Nemyra creates the bottomless chasm around the Fairy kingdom, in order to stop the effect of the dimensional tide, thus isolating the Kingdom from the rest of Felarya.
  • 8 880 B.U. - The Guardian Notys enters a trance of Rejuvenation. It will lasts five centuries during which the rampant instability of Felarya is progressively healed. For some reason, it coincides with a time of intense predation all over Felarya, leading to a period called the "Insatiable hunger". All over Felarya, creatures become ravenous, countless are eaten, many settlements wiped out, and small species hide in fear - when they are not gorging on smaller species themselves.
  • 8 360 B.U. - End of Notys' trance and of the time of the insatiable hunger.
  • 8 250 B.U. - Anomalies seem to be generally receding all over Felarya. The dimensional tide of the Great rocky fields is diminishing to tolerable levels.
  • 7400 B.U. - End of the Era of Mirages. The instabilities are fading and the dimensional tide ebbs away. Sentient species that survived this, and the "insatiable hunger", slowly start to recover, in many cases restarting from scratch. Elves in particular seem to have withstood the hardship pretty well.

The Recovery

This period refers to the time from the end of the Era of Mirages, to the emergence of the Elven Empire. During this time, various species slowly begin to spread themselves throughout the world again. The world is, however, during this time mostly wilderness. Humans, Elves, Nekos and Dridders build small settlements in the savage wild. Historians trace the oldest (surviving) examples of Dridder and Elvish writing to this time. Since the instability has stopped, more stable portals to Felarya are possible and more visiting species arrive.

  • 6590 B.U. – According to Elven myth, the Last Titan seals himself away voluntarily.
  • 6120 B.U. - Legend says genies arrive on Felarya and construct the Floating City of Jallas Amar.
  • 5920 B.U. - Humans arrive in Felarya in large numbers, building various settlements.
  • 5900 B.U. - An intense rain of meteors strikes the Orelosk Plateau region, shaking the earth. For some reasons, Majuras' scriptures appear to describe this event as a bad omen.
  • 5720 B.U. – Elves consolidate their power in the north.

The Age of Elves

During this age, small, hidden Elven communities begin to interact and communicate with each other, sharing cultures and knowledge. Soon the Elven Empire emerges, setting up small bastions of safety in the dangerous jungle. The Empire interacts with and influences various other species. The age of Elves starts with the reign of Empress Eteni. It's a long era of prosperity and power for Felaryan Elves, followed by a slow decline and a brutal end. Records of this time are much more precise, thanks to the steady work of Majuras elves.

  • 5695 B.U. – Kadyn Elven Empress Eteni comes to power. Under her enlightened rule, the disparate groups and tribes of elves come together and start to thrive. Up to this day, her great charisma and profound wisdom is legendary among her kin.
  • 5534 B.U. – The prosperous Elven city of Restalen is raided by a group of giant Dridders. The city is partially destroyed and many from the Elven nobility are eaten. Empress Eteni herself is swallowed by a dridder named Modanthe. Eteni is rescued by her guards before being digested. Still alive, Modanthe is captured and taken away.
  • 5533 B.U. – After the mourning, calls for vengeance are rising and many elves want to raze Dridders settlements in retaliation and to execute Modanthe. Empress Eteni resists them however and make a long and impassioned speech that remain famous to this day, calling for the necessity for elves to understand others races and interact with them instead of simply ignoring them like they usually do, which can only lead to tragedy. while well received by the majority, this speech angers the more traditionalist elements of the population who start to question Eteni's authority.
  • 5530 B.U. – Tensions are rising. Mytalon, an army general, challenges publicly Eteni's authority. As often among elves in such cases, a bow contest is organized. Many believe Mytalon is more interested in taking revenge for a previous contest he lost to Eteni than attacking her progressive stance. However, Eteni, with her legendary skills, easily wins the contest. Some elves sees in her the reincarnation of the goddess Temolian, and few will question her rule from now on.

  • 5242 B.U. – The elven Empire peacefully adds the Minkas, a small tribe of humans and their settlement Minkala as a province of their Empire, in a place that will then later become known as Ur-Sagol. It's a peaceful period of affluence and prosperity called "Tenamaskim": the "Elven peace".
  • 4898 B.U. – The elven Empire encounters a small Dridder Kingdom ruling over a part of what is now known as the Dridder forest. It's Modanthe's birth place and she is very concerned at what it has become. She is sent here and manages to convince many dridders to join the empire and to revolt against the despotic and ruthless rule of the Dridder Queen Taxshillia. A Civil war breaks out among dridders.
  • 4854 B.U. – Modanthe defeats Queen Taxshillia in duel and the Queen's forces are crushed by both the dridder rebels and the elven army. The royal family is sent into exile and the famous piece " The saga of Modanthe the brave" is created in Restalen. Modanthe refuses to become the new Dridder Queen though, in order to remain at the service of her friend and master Eteni. She instead settles as an ambassador.

In a few seconds, centuries of rule come to a sudden end. Eteni will widely be considered as the greatest elven ruler. Her son, Tibon takes the throne.
  • 4532 B.U. – Coronation of Emperor Tibon. He swears to follow the steps of his mother, which will actually lead to the empire becoming more assertive and expansionist.
  • 4203 B.U – The Elven Empire defeats a confederation of neko tribes living near the Motamo river, subsuming them into the Empire.

  • 4098 B.U. – Elves defeat the Naga tribes near the Giant tree. The remaining nagas are made part of the Empire, though they remain in the wilder places between Provincial centers. Elves suffered many casualties in the confrontation, and many at home grow unhappy, thinking that elves have lost their way and should keep among themselves, and simply use their army to protect elves, rather than intervene in the affairs of others races.

Historians agree to say Tibon's death marks the beginning of the Elven Empire's slow decline.
  • 3491 B.U. - An elven expedition exploring the north west coast encounters the Jotuns. Attempts are made to conquer them, but their fierce resistance and the harsh climate lead Elven Empress Melda to deems them “unable to attain the civilization the other races enjoy.” Elven settlements and outposts are, however, made in the north – these will clash with the Jotun constantly.
  • 3305 B.U. – Tensions grow between the elven tribes in Oloonde lakeland, and the central power of the empire. The Oloonde elves claim to be the true holder of the elvish way, keeping in perfect harmony with nature and minding their own business, while the Empire is becoming a parody of it. A few of them try to make secession but are quickly reconquered.
  • 3097 B.U. – Alek Akaptor, a human mage, enters the desert that will eventually bear his name because the barrier stopped shortly after.
  • 2792 B.U. – Elven Emperor “Falian the Mad” attempts to conquer the Fairy kingdom. The elven army he sends is mostly eaten.

  • 2662 B.U. – Nagas tribes unite and start to attack human settlements, eating their inhabitants. Humans ask the Empire to intervene, but the elves are busy with their own internal disputes in Oloonde lakeland, and the calls for help fall on deaf ears. Many human settlements are wiped out. The elves finally intervene but only when some of their kind start to be eaten as well. This will lead to a lot of bitterness from humans who feel they have been let down.
  • 2621 B.U. – Human provinces quietly start to reinforce themselves, building strong defenses and developing their garrisons.
  • 2498 B.U. – The Insecurity grows. Dridders become more and more restless and some humans clash with Nekos near the Motamo river. Feeling in danger, many elves flee their settlements across Tolmeshal forest to join the security of the north. Elven forces finally intervene to try and re-establish order. The Elven Empress Megedyl makes a decree forbidding “Provincial Armies” and order them to disband. This order is largely ignored, making Megedyl furious.
  • 2458 B.U. – Megedyl decides to make an example and send an ultimatum to the human village of Zenkuch for the inhabitants to disarm. When they refuse, a group of Scarlet elves is sent with the order of destroying the garrison and to gorge themselves on the villagers.

  • 2291 B.U. – Severely weakened and besieged , Restalen is just a shadow of the glory it once was. It finally falls to a combination of nagas, dridders and Jotuns assaults. Remaining strongholds are quickly defeated and predators feast. The elven population in Felarya is hit severely, with the exception of their distant Oloonde province, which is spared much of the chaos. The elves that do remain have in many cases evolved into highly different groups - after the Empire they split apart, forming different tribes. This marks the end of the Age of Elves.

The Sagolian Empire

During this period, the twin Empires of the Dridders and the Sagolians dominate Central Felarya. In many ways, the two Empires are the only thing keeping each other in check.

  • 2290 B.U. - Chaos and confusion reign in central Felarya and predation is rampant.
  • 2274 B.U. - The fairies claim that, since the elven Empire is no longer in existence, the “Secret Treaty” is now void – fairies begin to migrate east in greater numbers, reaching the Lake of illusions and what will become the Fairy Pond.

Esentially leaderless, the powerful Sagolian empire seems unsure of the path to follow.
  • 3 B.U. – Emperor Serrakmos IV finally appears again but he looks changed. Far from looking afflicted, the man have an air of calm assurance and determination. The same year, he orders the deployment of more troops to the southern frontier of the Empire and to build orb towers in central Felarya. Those measures are seen as deeply provocative and lead to a quick increase of tensions with dridders, but the Emperor simply ignores protestations from his advisors.
  • 0 B.U. – The Fall of Ur-Sagol. The city is destroyed in a single night. Accounts of what happened exactly vary widely. Some speak of a shimmering dome covering the city, others of an inhuman scream killing every of those hearing it, others of a guardian flying over the city it, or five of them. Either way, the morning after, the city is no more. All that is left are crumbling ruins and most of its inhabitants seem to have simply vanished. The rare survivors are too shocked to even speak and leave in mass the world through the Great dimensional gate. This marks the brutal end of the Sagolian empire.

Post-Sagolian times (A.U.)

The Reign of Sineria

The term "Post-Sagolian" refers to the time from the destruction of Ur-Sagol, to the present day. Until 145 A.U. the Dridders have unprecedented dominion over Central Felarya. this is the "Late Dridder Kingdom" or the "Sinerian Era". A century and a half is a small period considering the long history of Felarya, but the ruthless reign of the inflexible dridder Queen will nonetheless leave a deep, bloody scar in it.

  • 22 A.U. - Queen Sineria's rule is challenged. The fact her mother Chamyra attempted to make peace with nagas is used against her, in order to depict her family as weak-willed.
  • 38 A.U. - Queen Sineria crushes a rebellion led by a rival and defeat her in a duel to prove her superiority. With a mix of seduction, brutality, and remarkable tactical sense, she manages to build a strong support to her rule.
  • 41 A.U. - Queen Sineria organizes a purge of records and information concerning her mother and her mother's reign as Dridder Queen. A good deal of the heraldic "Keepers of Blood" organization opposes this and are summarily exiled from Supprozad.
  • 55 A.U. - The Dridder Kingdom wins a series of crushing victories against nagas. Queen Sineria takes part personally in each battle and her strong charisma and martial prowess motivate her troops. She displays a frightening cruelty and merciless determination on the battlefield.
  • 58 A.U. - Nekos grow nervous over the unchecked power of Sineria. Moreover she don't seems very keen on protecting them anymore and appear to believe more in their role as food rather than vassals.
  • 93 A.U. - Queen Sineria's rule grows more ruthless. She organizes a purge of her government and nobles, executing in drove those she suspected were plotting against her, being convinced there was an assassination attempt in the works. Many dridder noble families flee the massacre, leaving Supprozad, and moving south to take refuge in the Web Fells.
  • 99 A.U. - Nekos and Humans form an alliance and fortify the neko settlement that will later be known as Negav. Fortunately for them, the battle between Dridders and nagas rages, keeping Sineria's attention busy. However, facing the more advanced technology of Sineria's troops, the nagas looks increasingly desperate.
  • 119 A.U. – The great Treachery. Queen Sineria declares she wishes to make peace with the Naga Tribes at least, having pushed them far enough. She organizes a large meeting near the Giant tree with naga tribe leaders, in order to discuss the outline of new territories. In the midst of it, however, her Royal Guards murder them. The ambush is perfectly planned and very few nagas escape alive. Sineria declares that, from now on, any naga claiming to belong to a tribe shall be executed, and any claiming to lead a tribe shall be horribly tortured, then executed. After this point, the naga tribes virtually cease to exist, nagas regressing to mainly solitary lifestyles – this does not stop Sineria’s relentless hunting of them.
