HISTORY | UNRECORDED TIME
This was the beginning of everything. Myths speak of two powerful and unknowable forces causing all things to be; everything that was, is, and ever will be was created from just these two entities (though many hold to just the one of them doing the creating, the other looking to destroy all it could).
THE THANGARIAN AGE
Myths also speak of a time when the titans came to power. They ruled a great empire spanning many worlds, centered on their home world called Thangaria. As the empire grew it came to be ruled by the first gods: Vkar and Xora, who would later give birth to the pantheon.
THE PANTHEONIC AGE
Following the fall of the Thangarian Empire, and the death of their parents, the children of Vkar and Xora took power and ruled instead, forming the pantheon. It was during this age that the gods created Tralodren and many of the races which came to live on the world. Each god also increased their realms, power, and influence; and of the stories from this time, there seems to be no end.
THE TITANIC AGE
The first powerful empire on Tralodren was ruled by titans who had been expelled from Thangaria. They were the rulers of the world before any other race came to dominate the planet. At first a peaceful people, they soon grew jealous of the gods and wished to be like them, then greater than them. Mighty in nature and ability, they ravaged Tralodren in their battles with the linnorms in trying to forge their dreams of greater glory into reality.
THE DRANORIC AGE
After the titans' defeat, the gods left the dranors in charge of Tralodren. Sadly, they too wound up as despots in the end. According to the Patrious, the gods cursed them to a slow extinction and caused them to bring forth elves, humans, dwarves, gnomes, and halflings in their attempt to escape it. With the dranor’s final demise, there was a great shaking that split up the once massive continent dominating much of Tralodren—burying almost all of it beneath the waves and pushing pieces beyond the Boiling Sea.
