There are various nations across all of Gwalethia; each with their own unique histories. Here you will find a brief but expansive global history, recorded from various parties across the world, and brought together by Aeternaea. This history has been released to the western nations, unbiased, and with minimal edits, in order to ensure that they all know about the past, present, and possible futures.
The Chaos Epoch (100,000,000 Pre-∈ to 200,001 Pre-∈)
Nearly nothing is known about the Chaos Epoch. Not even Aeternaean scholars have been able to find anything conclusive about this period of time. The only reason it exists is due to theoretical evidence supporting it, and the idea that something must exist even further back than the mythological epoch.
The Mythological Epoch (200,000 Pre-∈ to 51,091 Pre-∈)
The Mythological Epoch is named as such as there exists little to no solid evidence or wisdom that supports the ideas that we know today during this period of time. Aeternaean scholars have found only records from third parties that claim certain mythological events have transpired here; ranging from divine intervention, to warring nations. However, due to the fact that there is nothing solid, anything in this period can merely be attributed to as a "myth" or "legend." No known nation can claim to have solid knowledge of this epoch.
The Ancient Epoch (51,090 Pre-∈ to 17,552 Pre-∈)
Pre-Aeternaean Age (51,090 Pre-∈ to 75,874 Pre-∈)
This era is named as such due to the fact that although Aeternaea has solid evidence of what occurred prior to its creation, it refuses to release this information to the western nation; even within Aeternaea, only the most loyal, devout, and dedicated scholars and priests are privy to this information.
Founding of Aeternaea Age (26,873 Pre-∈)
Not much is known to the west about the founding of Aeternaea, but what is known is that they've existed since this time period in one form or another.
Start of the Frozen Age (Date Lost to the West)
The exact cause and beginning of the Frozen Era is unknown to the west, and any solid information on it has been sealed away by the Eternal Throne of Aeternaea, allowing for possible theories to pop up globally.
According to Mokrani oral tradition, the beginning of the Frozen Age was ignited by the awakening of Khutankhan, the Mokrani god of winter. Following his rise to power was the glaciation of most of the planet, and the golden age of the primordial beastmen.
Age of the Ancestors (Date Lost to the West)
Severe ecological pressures following mass glaciation cause sharp drops in the populations of non-beastman races. This is coupled with the rapid proliferation of the primordials, beastmen who supposedly were specifically adapted to cold climates and formed the ancestral populations of all modern beastmen. The steady expansion of primordials force unadapted populations into further decline as competition for dwindling resources escalates.
Beastman populations continue to rise throughout this period in nearly every part of the globe, almost always out-competing other races. At their height near the end of the Ancient Epoch, beastmen were the dominant race in nearly every ecosystem on the planet.
The Lost Epoch (17,551 Pre-∈ to 9,401 Pre-∈)
End of the Frozen Age (9,982 Pre-∈)
The Classical Epoch (9,400 Pre-∈ to 1 Pre-∈)
The Expansion Epoch (0∈ to Present)
The Expansion Epoch (∈) is the current epoch in which the world resides. It had been named as such due to the unprecedented actions on the Western Continent of S'Kar, in which new, younger nations began to unify and work as independent nations rather than tribal ones. In this epoch, these nations each have unique goals, views, and ideas on the world; and are all striving to expand in one way or another.
The Age of Growth (0∈ to 952∈)
During these centuries the nations of the Western Continent experienced unprecedented growth and expansion, with many new nations being formed out of smaller ones.
The Carpathian Foundation (412∈ to 600∈)
412∈. The Carpathian Tribes unite in a grand alliance and begin expanding. This is generally considered the origins of the modern Carpathian Federation, it is seen as the beginning of modernisation for the Carpathian peoples.
The Founding of Albionica (662∈)
King Alfred the Founder defeats the Albionican Kingdoms at the great Battle of Towbray and quickly goes on to found the Kingdom of Albionica at the grand city of Frigatus. With 80,000 combatants, Towbray is the largest battle to ever occur on Albionican soil, and one of the biggest battles in S'kar.
The Age of Kingdoms (953∈ to Present)
Following upon the many national formations during the Age of Growth, this period of time is known for the formal formation of nations; through conquest, diplomacy, treaties, and other means. The vast majority of nations that were formed resembled kingdoms.
The Journey West (1110∈)
In this year, Aeternaea had sponsored a group of adventurers to travel throughout the Western Continent in order to gain a better understanding of the nations located there, it has been dubbed, "The Journey West."
