The World Of Khoras - History

The Age of Rebirth

809 CY - 1456 CY

"The Age of Rebirth contrasts sharply with the Age of Sorrow. Unlike the dark years that preceded it, the Age of Rebirth was a period of enlightenment and discovery as the races once again ventured out into the world. Trade and travel began to bring the new cultures together. Old crafts and ancient magic were brought back out into the light of day. The world awoke from its long slumber only to rediscover itself ."

- Cal Tarik, Lore Master and Historian, Ithell

As in the age before it, the Age of Rebirth consists of many political and cultural formations. It began when Lord Rukemin crowned himself king and declared the founding of the Kingdom of Rukemia. His small army begins to slowly assimilate all of the scattered villages and duchies of the old empire. Many Thullian cultural traits can be seen in Rukemia.

Following the empire, several areas and groups united to form various nations. Two significant events stand out above the political shuffling of the world:

In 930 Common Year, an Explorer Class vessel from the Zen’trag Hive, a spacefaring race from a nearby star, entered the Khorasian system. The power systems were adversely effected by the Drellisian radiation and the starship’s orbit rapidly decayed. The powerless ship broke apart in the lower atmosphere blazing a streak across the sky. Only due to emergency power on escape pods did part of the crew reach the surface alive. Most of the lifeboats headed for a jungle peninsula, an area with a ecosystem similar to their homeworld. The Drellisian radiation rendered all of their technology inoperative so the seventy four surviving aliens adapted to their new low-tech home. Forty years later, a group of sailors stumbled upon one of the Karthasian Hives. This first encounter ended in bloodshed and the human survivors returned to civilization with tales of terror about insect men.

In 1066, the groups of the Sentinel Mountains united to form the Coalition. The Drakkellian Alliance, aware of the Coalition's formation, felt that maintaining a military outpost so close to Coalition territory would only provoke border conflicts. The soldiers of the fortress were ordered to abandon their post and return to Drakkel. The soldiers of the fortress refused. The Drakkellian Alliance promptly severed all political ties with the keep. The fortress was thereafter known simply as Garrison.

In 1275, the dwarves of Ulkran sent a group back to recapture Mordia. Five years later, they arrived to find those ancient stone halls abandoned. They reclaimed the dwarven city-state and renamed it Urmordia. The repopulation of Urmordia began immediately.

Beginning in 1309, a series of conflict tore apart the normally peaceful grumman clans and age-old blood feuds flared up. A limited and brief war was fought. Several clans broke off the war and departed from the khenshire regions. These groups, led by the Falkir Clan, traveled to the east and established themselves in the hilly region south of Carrikos.

In 1456, Alfred Thurin, an ambitious baron, overthrew the King of Rukemia and declared himself Emperor. With this act, the Age of Rebirth drew to a close and the Age of Legends began.
