The Dawn of Time

At the beginning of time, called the Age of Dragons, three progenitor dragons fought. Proud Siberys was slain by dark Khyber, who in turn was bound by vibrant Eberron. The scattered remains of Siberys, the Dragon Above, became the ring that encircles the world. The body of Eberron, the Dragon Between, formed the seas and continents. Under the surface, the bones and blood of Khyber, the Dragon Below, created labyrinthine passages.

The Age of Giants

The first mortal beings to form civilizations were the giants. They built great cities in Xen’drik, using their own strength, a legion of slaves and powerful magic. Eventually, they ruled the world. After tens of thousands of years, the giants’ civilization collapsed or was destroyed.

The Age of Monsters

After the devastation of the giants’ fall, the lesser – including elves, eladrin, goblins, and orcs – began to develop and thrive. On Khrovaire, a great civilization of goblins arose, known as the Dhakaani Empire. The nomadic orcs also prospered, forgoing conventional civilization in favor of primal magic and stronger ties to the land.

The Current Age

Even though they don’t influence daily life in Khorvaire, the elves of Aerenal, the humans of Sarlona, and the various humanoid and monstrous races of Xen’drik continue to pursue their own endeavors. Merchants, scholars, and warriors from these far-off continents visit the Five Nations from time to time.

The Rise of Khorvaire

For nearly a thousand years, the kingdom of Galifar maintained a steady hand on the events in Khorvaire. Aside from a small war with the sea princes of Lhazaar, aggression and energies were turned, for the most part, toward settling the wilderness in ever-widening circles around Scions Sound.

These years of the kingdom of Galifar are often referred to as a “golden age.” Culture, the arts, and magic flourished, cities were built, and an unprecedented prosperity was shared by all. Continual improvements in infrastructure – including the development and construction of the first lightning rail routes – revolutionized communications and boosted trade across the continent. The situation at home was sp stable that energy was even turned toward developing interests overseas. Most notably, Stormreach was founded on the northern coast of Xen’drik.

In 894 YK, the death of King Jarot, the last ruler of Galifar, sparked the beginning of the Last War. The squabbling of royal siblings turned into a hundred years of bloodshed.

The event that brought about the end of the war was the mysterious destruction of Cyre, a land now called the Mournland.

The Last War

The Last War erupted after the death of King Jarot, when his children the rulers of the Five Nations, couldn’t agree on who should succeed him. Alliances rose and fell over the course of a hundred years, but at various points, each of the Five Nations turned against the others.

The war finally came to an end after Cyre was consumed by a deadly mist and became the Mournland. The Mourning set in motion a peace process that culminated with the signing of the Treaty of Thronehold in 996 YK.

Masters of War

The five rulers who reigned at the start of the ware, and who are arguably responsible for it, were: Kaius I of Karrnath, Mishann of Cyre, Thalin of Thrane, Wroann of Breland, and Wrogar of Aundair. Each is considered a hero by his or her own people and a treacherous villain by everyone else.
