The World Of Khoras - History

The Age of Legends

1456 CY - 2715 CY (Present Day)

The current era, the Age of Legends, is a new beginning. Centuries have passed since the Sundering and the Great War. Cities have been rebuilt, races diverged, clans united, nations evolved. The world has healed and is again ready to move forward. But we should not forget the lessons of the past. Countless people have lived, loved, fought and died on these lands before us. All that once was lies buried now... waiting for us to uncover it."

- Cal Tarik, Lore Master and Historian, Ithell

Historians begin the Age of Legends with the founding of the Rukemian Empire. This brought political stability to the eastern half of Ithria. With it, the empire brought many advances - better roads, safer travel, increased trade, better food distribution and a set of coherent and just laws and policies that spread across the lands unifying all under one banner.

in 2536 CY, the priests of Draxorith in Duthelm successfully managed to summon their demon lord into the world. This was the catalyst that started the War of Demons. a war that ravaged the eastern lands. This war was won when a Rukemian sponsored group of wizards managed to undo the spell that gave the demon lord physical form in reality. This banishing occurred in the summer of 2570.

Almost 150 years later, Duthelm again draws itself into political conflict with its renewed dabbling in the realm of summonings. In the year 2710, the Black Sorcerers of Duthelm opened a dimensional rift to another plane of existence and made contact with a race known as the xorians. Several thousand xorians were summoned to Khoras and bolstered Duthelm's military might. This catalyst served to launch what would later become known as the second Demon War. The alliance, however, would prove short lived as serious internal conflicts in Duthelm occurred and the xorians broke from the Duthelm   in 2711. This loss led to the fragmentation of the war and a subsequent stalemate along the Duthelm-Rukemian Border. Frequent skirmishes, covert activity and open hostility along the border define this area now.

Recent events across the continent include:

The latest development in Duthelm is Queen Sillar's recent rise to power. With help from her father, she has reorganized Duthelm after its damaging loss from the war and is now leading her nation back to military and political strength. Duthelm is rapidly rebuilding its armies and redeploying its resources. Kitar suspects Duthelm is gathering strength for another offensive.

Kalimura has recently discovered rich dasjanite deposits deep in the Shattered Mountains and has begun a long-range project which will culminate in the construction of an airborne vessel which flies using no magic at all, only the properties of the dasjanite mineral. Several teams have been sent into the Shattered Mountains to ascertain the extent of the dasjanite deposits and establish mining operations.

In response to the Kalimuran incursion, Myrians are attacking the Kalimuran caravans with increasing frequency. Raids against the southern Kalimuran towns have also increased.
