A note on history.
of the world has a somewhat vague beginning. The first age that can be accounted for is what is known as the Ancient Age (A.A.).
Many believe the Ancient Age was the beginning of all time, as best as any evidence of older days exists. Near the end of
the Ancient Age a great war - the Green War - began. What remained of historical documents at the beginning of the First Age
(F.A.) to follow was spread like dust on the wind. As pieces were gathered over the following years little evidence remained
to support the small fragments of information discovered. The Ancient Age turned to legend, then myth, and much was forgotten.
Age began at what was believed to be the end of the Ancient Age, though no one can say for sure. It began the first fully
recorded history of an age, when the new gods - later to be known as the Gods of Old - began their reign over the people.
The First Age lasted only five hundred and twenty four years and, in the ages to come, became known as the Age of Restoration
when the gods reached out and helped their people return the land to its greatest majesty. Records of beautiful gardens beyond
belief and peace in every corner of the world still exist. The fall of the First Age came with greed and hate which spawned
the creation of the Disque of Ascension, where the First Battle of Ascension took place.
The Second Age
followed the battle when the New Gods defeated the Gods of Old and claimed their places in the Heavens. The Second Age - also
known as the Age of Despair - gave way to the temptations of Shadow and all the mortal beings were but pawns to the games
the gods played against each other. These games lead from the War of Might, to the War of Dissidence, and finally the Great
Dragon War which nearly destroyed everything that was built during the Age of Restoration. The Second Age was the shortest
of all ages, yet also the most famous, consumed by the ravaging done to the lands, and was brought to an end by a great mage
Thus began the
Third Age, or Age of the Dragon, when the Conclave of Ten brought an end to the Great Dragon War and each tamed a race of
dragons, beginning their reign as the Dragon Gods. They ruled with peace once again spreading across the lands.
