A history of humanity, especially the Atharian Republic.

Age of Serpents

Pre-history, when the serpentfolk, also known as the Eldar, ruled the world. It is said to have lasted over ten thousand years, though the lack of any actual writings makes that difficult to confirm.

Age of Elves

From the arrival of the Elves to the Devastation. Again, the lack of writing at this time, and therefore any historical records, makes this a guess. The Elves claim this date for their arrival, but they are considered an unreliable source.

5,000 BD

The Elves arrive, repel the Elders and enslave humanity themselves.

3,000 BD

Kingdom of Asokk makes a deal with the elves for a sort of independence.

500 BD

Athar becomes a prominent slave centre, controlled by the Elves. A Stone Grove is planted here.

Age of Humans

With both the Eldar and the Elves defeated, it is time for humanity to forge their own destiny in the world.
