ERA OF MIRAGES - (10,670 B.U. - 7,400 B.U.)

What was called the The Era of Mirages is a long period after the war with the correctors where Felayra slowly recovered from the enormous damages it received. It was a time of great uncertainty, with countless anomalies, vanishing lands, flickering landscapes, dimensional storms that occured 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 over 3000 years.

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 during its occurrence is not very healthy and would lead to often deadly but interesting effects.

8 880 B.U. - The Guardian Notys enter a trance of Rejuvenation. It will lasts five centuries during which the rampant instability of Felarya is progressively healed. For some reasons, 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's 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. The Great Topazial Rift shrinks to modern day size.

8 100 B.U. - According to myth, the Temple of Lataran appears on Felarya.

7 400 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. Elves in particular seem to have withstand the hardship pretty well.

THE AGE OF RECOVERY - (7400 B.U. - 5695 B.U.)

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.

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.

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 (0 B.U. - Present)

The term "Post-Sagolian" refers to the time from the destruction of Ur-Sagol, to the present day, though it includes a variety of occourances. Until 145 A.U., the Dridders have unprecedented dominion over Central Felarya - this is the "Late Dridder Empire" or the "Sinerian Era". It is a short 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.

After the fall of Sineria, various minor powers emerge, but not to the extent of the Empire of Old. The most recent is the city state of Negav, which emerged from a small neko town near the Motamo River.


9 A.U. - Dridder Queen Sineria forbids worship of the Guardians in the Dridder Kingdom, aside from the main Dridder deity.

13 A.U. - Queen Sineria has various religious figures who disagree with her views arrested. She uses the fact that many were looking for a peaceful solution for the war with the nagas as an excuse.

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 serie 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 desesperate.

102 A.U. - Queen Sineria declares all past treaties with nekos and humans null and void and call on her fellow dridders to treat them as any other prey.

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. Sinera declares that, from now on, any naga claiming to belong to a tribe shalll 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.

120 A.U. - After celebrating this decisive victory, Queen Sineria now face an increasingly fierce resistance from rebel dridders in the Web Fells

132 A.U. - The rebellion is crushed with unparalleled levels of brutality and all the leaders are horribly tortured. Even some of the closest aides to Queen Sineria become nervous over her cruelty, and the fact that many of the executed dridders were from ancient and respected noble famillies. Those senseless massacres can only lead to more opposition. Despite that, a large majority of dridders stay loyal to Sineria and her very strong charisma.

143 A.U. - Queen Sineria's attention focus on nekos and humans gathered in their fortified settlements. She seems to see their stand as a challenge to Dridder dominance. She declares it as Dridder territory and express her wish to go and take a nap and a snack in the city. Should somebody oppose her, it would mean war. To her delight, she is obviously denied access and come back to Supprozad to make preparations for a full scale assault.

145 A.U. – The Fall of the Dridders. Quaz and another Guardian attack Supprozad. It is said legions of insects of every size descended on the city , blanketing the ground and covering the sun, laying utter devastation in their wake. Queen Sineria is killed, her Kingdom destroyed. The Dridder dominance effectively ends here, many dridder regressing to tribal society or solitary living. Only a small minority living near the Ruins of Supprozad, and a few groups in the Web Fells, try to keep their traditions alive. Interestingly enough, Sineria's body is nowhere to be found, and some persistant rumors say it was taken away and buried in a tomb whose location is unknown.

150 A.U. – Many giant nagas take the opportunity of the demise of their enemies to move and hunt in central Felarya. The insects that devastated Supprozad vanish for the most part, but not all of them. They colonize part of the Dridder forest and Tolmeshal forest, clashing repeatedly with fairies.

305 A.U. – Many fairies are driven away by the insects and come back in large number to the fairy kingdom.

467 A.U. - A group of Terra Elf cities unite into the first "Underground Empire", electing the first Emperor.

737 A.U. – Manox Kerume, The first official Neko king crown himself and rules over a confederation of tribes near the Motamo river. A cunning and brilliant individual, he is nonetheless contested among some nekos, for not being a Felaryan trueborn, and being rather freshly arrived in the world.

746 A.U. – King Kerume orders a complex network of underground tunnels to be dug under where Negav will be built, as a hiding spot and defense against predator attacks. The threat from nagas especially is becoming critical.

769 A.U. – In an extraordinarily courageous and bold move, King Kerume meet with Chani, the leader of a neighboring giant naga tribe. The meeting is private and what happened exactly is unknown, but it is said Chani was impressed and charmed by Kerume's wit and sheer courage and took a liking to him. Afterwards, predation from nagas diminishes considerably and King Kerume is seen as a hero by many. Some nekos resent him for making deal with the enemy though.

919 A.U. – Nearly all elven villages near the Evernight Forest mysteriously vanish.

1138 A.U. - "Under Emperor" Tashern of the Terra Elves lays down the plans for the "Great Underground Highways".

1218 A.U. - The "Great Underground Highway" project is canceled as it approaches the 80th Anniversary of its commencement, as disaster after disaster befalls various routes. In the wake of this, the "Underground Empire" divides up into many small city states, the Emperor loosing prestige after his failed project and the various cities tired of wasting resources, money and citizens on the "Impossible Road".

1261 A.U. – Darkness elementals swarm out of the Evernight forest, starting the “One Hundred Years of Nightmares” in Central Felarya. It's a period of intense fear, where people vanish for simply walking in the dark, and homes are kept well lit, from fear of wandering nightmares appearing. Déméchrelle herself is seen wandering in the north, sowing devastation, and feasting on every creatures : animals, elves, humans, or even giant nagas!

1333 A.U. – The darkness expands and engulf whole regions of Felarya. Fairies flee the Forest of whispers and watch worriedly as a dark tide flows, seemingly endlessly, down the chasm surrounding the Fairy kingdom.

1341 A.U. - King Kerume and Chani mount a joint effort with the best nekos and nagas shamans in order to stop the darkness from advancing in their region. It's a success but it makes some nekos resent even more Kerume, who seem to go along very well with Chani. Bawdy songs are sung in some taverns involving the two.

1363 A.U. – Déméchrelle is sealed by the Guardians.

1427 A.U. – Tensions increase among nekos and King Kerume is assassinated in a coup. The rebel leader, Gewaz Tatal proclaims himself the new king. Furious, Chani swear to capture and eat Tatal herself.

1451 A.U. – Tensions don't show any sign of abating. Many nekos deeply resent Tatal for assassinating Kerume and putting an end to a period of relative quiet and prosperity. Chani goes on frequent rampages and earns nicknames like " the devourer" or " Slithering death" and is used as a bogeyman to scare young nekos. Humans living alongside with nekos also grow uneasy with the new King, Many of his policies seeming to target them.

1465 A.U. – Tatal is deposed in a coup. He manages to escape though, and disappear. There is various theories on what happened but none could be verified. Some say he left Felarya, some say he was handed on a plate to Chani. Chani herself simply vanishes shortly after and is never seen again. Mazdam Tonho becomes the new king.

In this fated day, a group of giant nagas approach Negav and is surprised to see no guards on the massive defensive walls, busy as they are fighting inside. The nagas quickly take the opportunity to attack, entering the city and eating terrified inhabitants. Soon, the new spread among local predators who flock in numbers to take part in the feast. The city's defenses are totally disorganized and the guards, left with no orders, are eaten, almost to the last. The only saving grace for Negavians is the large tunnel network under the city, and the capacity of the stuffed predators' stomaches. King Tonho himself is eaten, reportedly in his own palace.

Under the Mancala accord, The Magiocrats provide nekos with a smaller version of the the Isolon Eye that, the neko soon realize, must be periodically recharged... for a fee.

Point taken. I was a little unsure of that, but heck, she's the main character in the manga and there's a fair bit of backstory to her birth. I also just put it in there to put recent history into perspective a bit.

11811 B.U. – According to vague Elven myth, the Temple of Lataran appears on Felarya
what occurs between theses to time peroids,i got an idea, not doing specifics until later
7790 B.U. – According to Elven myth, the Last Titan seals himself away voluntarily.

Sometime between 11811 B.U And 7790 B.U great endo-hitmock war erupts 300 years later some of the endorian Forces crosses into Felarya to make a last stand in what would become the Imoreith Tundra and the lands surrounding it. First endorian artfacts left behind in felarya.Both opssesing side wiped each other out.
Well thats my idea anyway,

I don't think its too much out of place. She is the mascot afterall =P

Overall though, I think this timeline is really good. You gave a plauible chain of events as to how the Ur-Sagolians and the Dridder Empire came into being, and some really interesting ideas for what the Elves could have done in the past.

I really like the relationships between the Sagolians, Dridders, Nekos and Nagas. It really has an old-school European feel to it, with the different nations clashing all the time, and the Nekos playing the part of Poland and getting conquered and/or eaten again and again. It kind of sets up the present as kind of an uneventful period. The old powers have all collapsed, and Negav has moved into the power vacuum to become the new big power in the Jungle. Because of the fall of the Dridders and Sagolians, things are also a lot more stable than they once were.

Nice work, dude ^^

"Abandoned Vishmital outpost
Danger: Normal
Inhabitants: Storm Sprites

In the southern part of the great rocky fields lies a huge but deserted military complex. This imposing fortress was an infantry training center as well as a radar outpost of the Vishmitals. Oddly, while the place is void of any trace of its former owners, a good part of the equipment and advanced technology there is still functional. For example laser turrets will deploy and open fire whenever a harpy approaches, and sentry robots roam the zone around the base, deeming everyone who approach to be an intruder, and opening fire after the first warning to leave. The base is now a playground for a pack of storm sprites who are probably responsible for its fall in the first place. So far the Vishmital's attempts to reconquer it have all failed. Needless to say their rivals, the Ps'isol magiocrats of Negav, are not in a big hurry to help them retake it. Seeing the Vishmitals' efforts to retake the base, some have started to wonder if they didn't leave something very valuable behind them there."

- The Wiki

It seems like it is still mostly there, but between the sentry guns, sentry robots and Storm Sprites, it has become quite the death trap.

Hehe, thanks! That's what I was aiming for - not just to create random dates, but to show slowly evolving trends. It is also important to remember that even though there were "Empires" and "Kingdoms" they were more a collection of "safe" zones - in between the civilizations was still always dangerous wilderness.

And I wouldn't say the present is "uneventful" - between all of these dates stuff was happening, I'm just trying to lay out a general "road map" of what went on. And also show that Felaryan History has more to it than "Ur-Sagol Fell"!

But yes, the Empires are gone, brought down, in varying ways, by their own pride. The poor nekos were probably like "yay, they're all gone!" and then the Magiocrats showed up...

Also, with the Elven Empire, I figure this does explain "Elven Attitude" in a lot of ways. I.e. - "We totally had everything under control but then you had to go make a mess of it and look what happened when you tried running the place, morons. We at least never pissed off the Guardians".

And I guess I'll edit that Vishmital point.

Well I'm a bit late to the party but seriously this is a pretty kickass timeline to depict and explain a lot of events! Very nice mixing of the different races and all the struggles, I really can't add much more than what Cliff said but I love this a ton heh. It also answers just where the hell did all these damn ruins come from too...

Wait, so the elves defeat the dridders AND nagas, and subsume nagas into their empire along with other humans and nekos and for some reason they still cant defeat the jotuns? In addition to this sounding extremely forced, it's also absurdly rediculous to assume a race of tiny elves can defeat dridders and nagas in a war.

I just don't even know what is...

Though the whole rest of the timeline seems pretty good and thought out. I really like the very beginning of it all for some reason.

It depends if the elven empire included all sizes of elves.

Even then it's still highly unlikely, and conquering not only dridders, but nagas as well raises my eyebrow. I'm all for elf superiority and all (being an elf lover, a main OC being an elf.) but this just seems too far fetched a feat without a detailed explanation.

It's a very well detailed timeline but I'll have to think of some things about it. It conflicts in a couple places with things I had planned, which probably also applies to Cauldron and a few other people dabbling in the past. For example, I have Supprozad dating back way before it - though under a different name - in parts of my story not currently written (all arc 2 stuff) and originally being a part of another society, the ruins of said city being built upon by the dridders later on.

I too would like some further explanation as to the elves bit, I'm not particularly against it but it does raise interesting questions. I will admit it helps to tie the more 'modern' history together, whereas Arc 2 of my story will be focusing on the 'ancient' history involving the times before the Titans.

Also, the Ur-Sagol dimensional gate was not made by the Sagolians. The wiki states that all attempts to date it failed, but the pedestal it stands upon has been there for at least 4000 years which your timeline also doesn't take into account. The defensive tower it sports was probably built by the Sagolians.

It's an astonishing work here ^_^

you read extremely meticulously the wiki and it shows ! there is a lot of things I really like here, some ideas that make a lot of sense and just *click* together. For example it's silly to say but until now I didn't imagined the Serrakmos statue to be linked to Ur-Sagol in nay way and yet it makes perfect sense ^^

Like some others pointed, I'm less sure about the elves' absolute dominance of Felarya in Ancient time. My mind is also starting to work on how nagas were organized exactly. There is obviously some thing I wasn't seeing this way but this timeline is definitely very solid and, more importantly, make the mind work just by reading it ^^
Very nice job ! Razz

Not necissarily. Going by this timeline, at the time, Elves were arguably the most advanced species in knwon Felarya...being the first to unite into one big civilization. If you have better magic, tech and organization, conquering small tribes is not that hard. The Joutun are a different story though. They're a violent and scrappy bunch to begin with, plus they live in the cold, and are too stubborn to be conquered. It probably wasn't so much that the Elves didn't have the might to conquer them, as it was that the whole campaign just became not worth the effort, between the cold and the Joutun themselves.

I don't think Jeatte ever specified if this was a giant, human-sized, or mixed Elven Empire though. Either of them could work, really. The mixed one would be a little tougher, but if we assume that all Elves believe in Elven superiority, then it doesn't seem too far-fetched that they would all unite to try and expand the influence of that superiority. A mixed-size civilization is also something that hasn't been done before (outside of Kotori Town), and is a pretty interesting concept in and of itself.

I think the Elven domination helps set up Ur-Sagol and the Dridders pretty well. it gives them a reason for popping up around the same time, and teching up fast. The influence of the Elves would have not only motivated them to break free, it would have let them see how a large civilization works. They could have then stolen some of the Elve's ideas, and some of their tech, to help get their own civilizations moving.

I like this a lot. You definitely put a lot of effort into this and did your research. I am impressed.

Now for some suggestions. Couldn't think of any exact dates for them so you can change them if you want. I'll be looking to the lore section and such for ideas:

-------------------------

? B.U. - Titans turn on their creators, the Guardians.

? B.U. - Akaptor Ocean dries up and becomes Akaptor Desert.

? B.U. - The Great Tree takes root.

? B.U. - What is to be known as the Buried Palace becomes buried.

? B.U. - The original "Alchemus Omegus" is written.

? B.U. - The dreaded "Omnomnomicon" is written.

? B.U. - The "Soul of Chephrda" is said to have been created.

? B.U. - The "Great Squirrel Invasion" occurs.

? B.U. - Chlaenas construct Ryzelm’oire.

? B.U. - The Temple of Dreams is constructed by unknown beings.

Unfortunately no, because many great civilization were and are put in difficulty by less advanced societies. It can give you a great advantage but not the warranty of victories, because in war many factors can change the turn of the events.

It's a pretty good timeline, though I might have a few quabbles here and there.

Hmmm, good point on the Dimensional Gate. I'll edit that.

As for elves, @Bael - Yes, they had giant elves working with them, at least I figure that they had a few.

I didn't really have the time to go in depth onto how each Empire worked precisely. But the elves did use giant allies, as well as cunning use of magic.

As well, when I'm writing of total Elf "dominance", remember that Felarya was still very dangerous in between "civilized" spots. The reason the elves became so widespread is because they didn't "put all their eggs into one basket" so to speak, like with Ur-Sagol or Supprozad. Their towns could be quickly constructed by manipulating tree growth, grouping them in a circle to make a wall, or just creating passages within a large one. I figure they had lots of towns like this spread across Felarya.

As for the Jotun, Bael, gwadahunter has the right idea. The Elves could defeat enemies in pitched battles, but had a difficult time when the enemy wouldn't "play fair".

If you need an Earth parallel, look at the trouble various Germanic tribes, with low tech, gave the more organized Roman Empire.

As well, the Elves probably figured it wasn't worth their time trying to "fix" the Jotun.

Ok if I understand why Elf spread it's because they can built quickly infrastructures by manipulating tree growth but what makes them start using stones in building Question
Another remark
Quote :
2094 B.U. – After the fall of the Elven Empire, predators become more and more common in Central Felarya. In response, in 2094, the Citadel of Ur-Sagol is built for defense. This will be the centre of the city that will soon spread around it, reaching its peak size in about 1000 years.
Central Felarya is inacurate because it's not the central of the world but of the continent.

And I doubt dimensionnal trade started really during Ur-Sagol era but existed before.

Until we actually know any of the region outside of known Felarya, calling it Central Felarya isn't really inaccurate. The current map is the entire world of Felarya as we know it. There is a lot more out there, but right now it is a non-issue because it is totally uncharted.

Central Felarya is a casual term to refer to the central area on the map. Even if its not the center of the world the term is used to denote the area around the Giant Tree.

The Elves started to use stonework when making sites of religious significance. They probably actually learned advance stonework from the Sagolians and Dridders that they conquered. They wanted their places of worship to be a permanent thing.

Actually, the dridder empire included all sizes of dridders (this has been discussed before).
