Age of Dragons
-The gods Bahamut and Tiamat begin creating dragons, the first mortals, and as Bahamut and Tiamat war against each other their children war against each other. The dragon’s skirmishes span the globe, destroying the verdant landscape and causing the seas to boil.
After aeons of draconic battle and feuding there is little sustenance for the dragons to share and their numbers decrease as many of the oldest begin dying off in increasing numbers. With the dragon wars virtually at an end and the prime material plane of Zargos devastated, the other gods begin creating other races. As these other races begin to flourish, so does the planet begin to recover. Also during this time the giants who were created and labored under the primordials are beginning to increase in numbers. Many of the remaining dragons seize the opportunity the giants and other budding races present and begin building empires.
The Jennu Empire of Avalar is founded by the great green wyrm Jennuthava Thachzillian III.
The Jennu Empire is the largest on Zargos, it encompasses the entire western hemisphere. Late in the year its current ruler, the great black wyrm Jennuvuthael Ka’Davississ, is assassinated by a rebellious group of fire-giants calling themselves The Primordial Sons. With the throne of Jennu empty and no willing heirs, The Primordial Sons claim Avalar as their own and rename themselves the Imperial Overlords.
Other giant factions would challenge the Imperial Overlords, a war is fought with many fronts, taxing the resources and mettle of the Imperial Overlords. By the end of the year however, giants throughout the rest of Zargos are rebelling against their dragon rulers. So ends the Age of Dragons
Age of Giants
From the ashes of dragon kingdoms arise the kingdoms of giants, armed with the knowledge of their predecessors, wielding magic and might, they sought to conquer all.
The first known and recorded Ice age begins when the continental ice sheet north of Avalar stretches into the Argothian Sea. Jarl the Great, a frost-giant, races across the north defeating other giant kings and claiming their lands as his. He leaves the defeated kings in place to act as governors.
The dwarven slaves to the current frost-giant Jarl begin their rebellion. The dwarves flee the Jarl’s domain.
By this time, rumor of the rebellion has spread and influenced further rebelling against the giant kind.
Giant kind are hunted down by previous slave races such as orcs, humans, and dwarves. The receding ice sheet across Avalar makes it easier for the previous slave races to begin forging their own kingdoms in various regions throughout Avalar. War against the giants still rages across the continent.
A young human tribal leader named Kuroush Parrin unites a majority of the nomadic tribes west of the Aegis Sea, thus establishing the Parrinian Empire. By the end of the year he began invading the lands south of the Aegis Sea.
Virtually all giant kingdoms south and east of the Aegis Sea have been destroyed by invading Parrinians. Kuroush’s conquest has ended, the Parrinian Empire occupies a substantial portion of eastern Avalar.
Kuroush dies passing the crown onto his Eldest son, Sorash.
The elf kingdoms east of the Aegis Sea begin a conquest of their own rooting out the remaining giant kingdoms in eastern Avalar.
On his death bed, Sorash divides his kingdom between his sons Parth and Argoth.
Numerous tribes south of the Dragonsbirth Mountains begin rebelling against Argoth. Out of pity, Parth gives up a large portion of his lands south of the Aegis Sea, and Argoth withdraws from the lands both south of Dragonsbirth and Khalazzir Mountain ranges.
The elves have finished their systematic removal of the giants between the Aegis Sea and Tammorra Ocean and north of the Dragonsbirth Mountains. The territory is divided between two separate bloodlines or subraces of elves. The dry grasslands are ruled by the less civilized and more rugged wild elves. Their realm is dubbed Sal’nador. The vast woodland west of the steppes are settled by the high elves and their realm is named Cherubar.
By the end of this century, the Age of Giants comes to its end.
