Hello, and welcome to the timeline of the Realms. Here you will find events listed from the earliest days of Evylon to the present day. Everything from Fang's hatching to the Snakekind Wars to Drakaras and the Demon War, you will find it here. Every Realm is covered in detail, and both the current year, as well as a depiction of an important event, may be found. More history in greater detail may be found in our library, as well as in species history.
For the curious, the first BTACD plot was started in Felnovian year 13007. Nearly a decade and a half has passed in-character!
Creation: First creation and start of inhabitation of Evylon. Beginning of the First Age. The Old Gods are created, an antlered elf and a phoenix, though their names are lost to time.
Inhabitation: Elves created, based on and modified off the high elves of the First Realm.
Inhabitation: Dragons first introduced, coming from Millirand. Aurochs are also seen at this time.
Inhabitation: The phoenix and kitsune are created.
Species Event: Evylonian calendar created by the first peoples.
Inhabitation: Humans, dwarves, centaurs and gryphons are created, copied from the First Realm.
Inhabitation: The gods rest as inhabitation is considered complete.
God Event: The Realm's aura is stronger than other Realms by far, and begins to sap the strength of the gods. They withdraw from the Realms and disappear from the lives of the people.
Inhabitation: Evylonian deer are created and refined from aurochs by the Old Gods of Evylon as a gift to their people to remind them that they have not forgotten.
Species Event: Aurochs disappear from the land, thought to have been driven to extinction in Evylon.
Politics: The Country of Shi'vrann'aeli is formed. At this time, the country is filled with only elves. Others are shunned and turned away.
Politics: Other, smaller kingdoms begin to fill the land, their names forgotten by time. Most are organized by race - very few are mixed. At this point, most of Evylon's early continents are filled.
God Event: The gods begin to lose control. Birth of the first magestorm, that struck what is now upper Anquil.
Species Event: In an old human kingdom on the southern portion of modern Shi'vrann'aeli, certain groups of humans had dedicated themselves to the upholding of Light, and were the first to be welcomed by the elves in their cities. The gods witnessed this and touched one of them, a woman named Halgiana, with their essence.
Species Event: Halgiana learned in the first year of her blessing that this essence could be granted to others deemed worthy at will. This energy was the closest incarnate of divine, pure Light in the Realms (though this is never understood by both pre-Halgians or modern-day Halgians, as the divine purpose behind it was never made known, as the gods were not strong enough to make themselves and their touch realized in full) and physically changed all it touched - they became fair of skin and of hair, gifted with the element of light, and gained a sense of darkness that few other races possessed even at an individual level. Through the first year, almost two hundred humans were granted with this light.
God Event: The gods cannot hold their physical bodies any longer. Magestorms become a common occurrence in what is modern-day Anquil, breaking through the control of the gods. Magical energy begins to 'bleed' from the ground in several places throughout the Realm.
- 1012 to 1030
War: Halgiana leads her people on a great crusade against the creatures spawned and twisted by the magestorms. The conflict is brutal and bloody, but the Halgians continue to gain ground until their homeland is overtaken by magestorms, forcing them to call off their crusade. They found their first city, placeholder, and raise a protective barrier to shield it from the storms.
Inhabitation: Faeries and halflings created.
- 1053 to 1102
War: Faced with diminishing resources due to the magestorms, the elven city-states in Shi’vrann’aeli war upon each other. After several decades of fighting, Heartwood emerges victorious, and unites the elves into a strong, prosperous country. Other races are no longer shunned.
Inhabitation: Avians and fauns introduced.
Species Event: The first angel, a hybrid of Halgian and Avian, born in Halgia. This was to be the first of many.
Realm Event: Halgia and Shi’vrann’aeli continue to grow and prosper, then face a sudden invasion from Anquil. The two countries form a military alliance, and drive the invading beasts back.

War: Halgiana leads her people on a second great crusade to Anquil, joined initially by elves of Shi’vrann’aeli. The elves return to their homes after a few years, and Halgiana, faced with a lack of supplies, does the same several years later. The military alliance between elves and Halgians officially ends.
Politics: Halgiana crowned the first Halgian Empress, and Halgia is officially established as an empire.
Realm Event: The Driakkion supervolcano erupts, causing widespread devastation as massive tsunamis slam into coastlines, and ash rains down upon the entirety of Evylon. A volcanic winter sets in, and in the resulting famine, many thousands die.

Politics: Fyrendrang leads the Reds to Driakkion. Over the following decades, the rest of the Heartwoodian breeds begin to settle in Driakkion, and develop a stable government.
War: Rising tensions lead to violence between Driakkion and the Halgian Empire, and war breaks out. The fighting spreads to Shi’vrann’aeli, drawing the elves and their allies into the fight. A number of Golds and Silvers join the Halgians, forming the core of their dragonrider military.
Politics: Five years after the fighting stopped, an official truce is negotiated between Driakkion, the Halgian Empire, and Shi’vrann’aeli.

Inhabitation: Chimera discovered via hybrid breeding gone wrong; affected by the magics of the magestorms in Anquil, these creatures became quite numerous quite quickly.

- 8680 to Present
War: The King of Heartwood and the Halgian Emperor begin the first of many excursions to Anquil to purge the land of the violent beasts constantly invading Shi’vrann’aeli and the Empire.

A large number of Ansar show up at the same time, briefly causing the Halgian army to prepare for a fight. But before blood can be shed, the Ansar fill the air with their song, celebrating the long alliance between the two nations in their own, unique way, before departing.

- 13705 to 13767
War: A horde of beasts from Anquil invades the Halgian Empire, which is still recovering from the plague. Despite assistance from the elves, it isn’t until Driakkion decides to aid the empire that the invasion is halted, and driven back.
War: Taking advantage of the recent hardships suffered by the elves, a band of orcs raids Heartwood City, intending to slaughter the royal family.

Politics: A series of raids and counter-raids between several dragons fro Driakkion and a Halgian Border Patrol end violently when Fyrendrang ends up destroying the guard tower and the small island it stood on. Outright war was avoided when Driakkion agreed to refuse to seek retribution for the deaths of any draconic raiders, while the Halgians would respect Driakkion’s borders.
Politics: The Halgian Emperor disappears during an expedition to Anquil, and is believed to have been killed. His successor is just barely approved by the Imperial Electors, due to her young age.
Politics: After a number of orc raids, the king of Shi’vrann’aeli forges an alliance with the leader of a gryphon flight. The gryphon leader, who was as colorful as the peacock he closely resembled, gifted a number of his own molted feathers to the elven king, who had the feathers sewed into a cape. The two leaders maintained a lifelong friendship.
Politics: A crisis rocks the Halgian Empire when the reigning emperor suffers a heavy blow to the head during a campaign to Anquil. He never regains awareness, leaving the Empire briefly leaderless. The emperor dies a few days later, and, amidst quiet rumors that the previous emperor had been poisoned, a new emperor is elected.
Politics: A halgian arrives in Illus-Adamar, claiming to be the emperor who disappeared nearly three thousand years ago. He is promptly imprisoned, and later discovered to have been turned into a vampire. His fate is uncertain, but he is believed to have been executed by the Inquisition.
Some Halgians begin to question the hard stance against dark creatures the empire has increasingly taken. A number of philosophers debate the issue, and the Inquisition begins to take a keen interest in the debate.
Politics: A sizable number of Halgians are arrested by the Inquisition, and interrogated about their beliefs concerning dark creatures. Most are released shortly, but the issue is no longer discussed in public.
- 20614 to 20617
War: Numerous flights of sarka, led by a number of Marked Ones, invade Evylon. A short but brutal war breaks out, with the Realm’s four nations fighting together against a common enemy for the first and only time in the history of the Realm.
Politics: Silent dissension grows in secret as many Halgians begin to grow resentful of the Inquisition’s pervasive influence, and fierce opposition to any topics that go against Halgian tradition and teachings.
Politics: The dissidents make themselves publicly known, demanding reforms and insisting that the Inquisition be stripped of much of its power. The Inquisition, in turn, declares the dissenters to be a danger to the Empire’s stability.
Politics: Without imperial authorization, the Inquisition moves against the dissidents, intending to arrest them all in one sudden strike. However, the dissidents receive advance warning, and thousands manage to flee the Inquisition’s grasp, and head out into the wilds..
- 23019 to 23025
War: By imperial decree, those Halgians that fled the empire are to be rounded up and brought back to face trial for deserting the Empire. Numerous skirmishes occur before the refugee Halgians manage to evade their pursuers, thanks in large part to the involvement of a number of Heartwoodian Blacks. After a few years, the Empire is forced to concede that further attempts to capture the dissidents is pointless.
Politics: The city of Umbra is founded, and the refugees begin to call themselves the Fallen. They forge a strong alliance with the Heartwoodian Blacks who fought beside them.
Species Event: Exposure to the magestorms causes the Fallen to change. Their innate connection to light darkens, and they embrace their new nature wholeheartedly.
Politics: Fyrendrang is spotted flying around the Halgian Empire. The empress orders her army to be on high alert, but it soon becomes obvious that the old Red isn’t there to start any fights. He is welcomed as befits a sovereign ruler, and soon departs.

- 24880 to 24978

The Fallen skillfully avoid pitched battles with the numerically superior Halgians, engaging in a long campaign of hit and run tactics, and sudden assaults, frustrating Halgian attempts to crush their military might.
Politics: The Fallen, and their Heartwoodian Black allies, are officially declared enemies of the Empire. Numerous patrols maintain a close watch on the area where Fallen patrols have been sighted, and skirmishes are frequent.
War: A Halgian patrol manages to locate Umbra, but are all killed before they can reveal this. The reigning Highlord chastises his commanders, and leads his forces on a sudden, devastating raid, forcing the Halgians on the defensive for a time. The Fallen reorganize their defensive strategy.
Politics: A dwarven diplomat visiting Heartwood is gifted a bottle of poisoned wine by the elven king. The diplomat becomes ill, but suffers nothing more severe than cramps, and an unsteady gait for a while. The wine is found to have been poisoned by an unknown party. The diplomat recovers, swears off wine, and is honored for services to the crown.
War: Accidental rediscovery of Evylon by Verridith Skystriker, Queen of Felnova. Nuar Steelsoul, an elf in Heartwood's employ, slew the current King of Shi'vrann'aeli.

War: Age of Darkness begins. Deathwing and his brother Rippclaw attack Albronel, flooding the city streets with death and fire. Verridith returns from her adventures in Evylon, and soon after the long-lost and former King Kazule, to counterattack and defeat them. It is revealed that Kazule is the Ether of the Light Realm, and cannot linger for long. He later leaves, though visits often.
War: Verridith heads back into Evylon to assist her rider in helping his steward recover Heartwood after the turmoil of the War of the Dead. An entity only known as the Frog King besieges Vystriana, later killed by a Lunar dragon named Exodus.

Battle: Verridith returns, and Vystriana enters a state of recovery. During this, an Orc Warlord named Cal-Cia attacks Albronel, riding a snakekind thought to be an unhooded brother to Snakra. Quickly put down.
War: Second Snakekind War, as Snayc rises from deep slumber, unleashing the darkness in his soul. In a meeting with the Ethers, Snayc finds a way into the Ether Realm and slays Kazule, before absorbing his power to return to Felnova unhindered. He shatters the Bloodstone in a battle that rages around it, and that battle eventually spills over into an unexplored and wild region of forested land in Evylon. Snayc is slain by Verridith and her Council, with aid from her grandfather Fang returning from places unknown, along with his son Marflax.

War: Dhath briefly emerges; battles Rune, a black dragon who claimed to be the Shadowking; confronted by the gods, Rune repents his sins and helps to reseal Dhath. Drakaras the Fell rises in the chaos and initiates a new reign of terror.
War: After a long and bitter war, Drakaras is ended; however, stressed by the constant waves of war and sanity already fractured, the god Zacyn falls to madness. He attacks the Free Races in a maddened attempt to inspire a mortal uprising, and eventually allows himself to be overpowered. Zacyn is killed by Lunaria and Verridith, replaced by the Ascended god Lyfe. Yorije's Calypso is impersonated by a Black Guard named Niona, who pretended to be a Daughter of Yorije and killed countless black eggs.
Politics: Verridith falls in love with a wandering lightning dragon named Narath, and rather quickly takes him as her King. He proves to be a wise, if mistrustful, leader, and the pair settle to have children. Verridith lays only one egg, in the middle of a small siege against Albronel by the witch Zoicite and her forces. Nagase hatched (Verridith x Narath), and flees accidentally through a portal into Heartwood, where she is fostered by two elven brothers.
13016 to 13019
War: The First Demon War breaks out when a demon Lord, the Lord of War, manipulates the other Lords to come to Felnova, and strengthens a spell accidentally corrupted by his son Solan that causes nightmares to become reality. Lord Kirai’s goal was to turn Felnova into a copy of Kurai, and claim both Realms. Lord Seymour of Pestilence and Lord Akerio of Death aided him in his endeavor, while Lord Xenion of Famine opposed him. A massive war broke out on Felnova, and the Realm’s Core was badly disrupted, destroying Felnova’s balance. Kirai was later killed in battle, while Seymour and Akerio abandoned the war, leaving the gods to restore Felnova’s balance.
War: A Spirit King and Lord of Hell, Kairn initiates a war called Hell's Rebellion. He seeks to bring all Realms to a close, and create his own singular Perfect Realm. Noamuth, Gurthril, and Daecuru freed. Kairn becomes a lesser god.
War: Culmination of the Hell War; the Perfect Realm, Kamillik, is created. Lithmor released. As he attempts to wipe out all other races, save for those he deems 'perfect', a large-scale battle erupts within his Realm. Kairn is defeated by Death, and Kamillik is destroyed. A mass exodus returns the Free Races to where they had come from, and life resumes as the Realms piece back together what they had before the war. Chamenos is split from Solan, via much the same spell as what started the First Demon War.
War: Short Second Demon War. Chamenos defeated by his own overbearing ambitions, as he tries to destroy Realm Markers. An ancient, dark entity known as Orochi is awakened, and the dark god Lithmor is released.
13029 to present
War: War of Three commences. Scylla's rage, and calming, in this year. Faction of Hope rises, takes Vystriana, and allies with Orochi. Now called the 'Twin War'.
Creation: The four spirits that are responsible for the creation of Kurai come into being from nothing; a dragon named Neiren, a wolf named Lethias, a hawk named Orphethus, and a lion named Zailen. These four gods craft a new, beautiful, and unique Realm.
Inhabitation: Demons are created to occupy Kurai, each attuned to the four gods: straight-horned Death demons; ram-horned War demons; slender and winged Famine demons; and venom-taloned Pestilence demons.
War/God Event: Lethias attacks Neiren in an attempt to take over and be supreme goddess of Kurai. Neiren retaliates, and the war for control becomes a fight to kill one another. Zailen and Orphethus intervene, only to be consumed by rage and fighting to kill too.
War/God Event: Kurai is changed as the gods war; the stars are swept from the skies and trees stripped bare, as water all but vanishes as the rivers and seas are filled with blood. Grass grows bleached silver and the trees bone-white, snow falls black as ash, and the earth itself appears dark gray as ash.
God/Realm Event: At last, the gods cease their war, realizing they have all but destroyed their Realm. They were created as equals, and none can surpass the other. The gods withdraw and forge their Kingdoms, name Lords to govern them, and rest. Death and War are afflicted with a curse - Death to kill for life, and War to drink blood instead of water, as water becomes toxic to all under Neiren.
Inhabitationt: Hellwolves are created using lethaos-class demons, gifted with powerful wolven forms; each Kingdom has its own traits, based on the gods and their demons. Long years of peace follow, as each Kingdom holds to its own.
Species Event: Original species traits for each Kingdom begin to fade; n'vaen demons become as varied as any Realm's species, and over the next several thousand years, their traits can only be found in hellwolves and demonic subspecies.
Politics: The first - and only true - Demon King rises to the Silver Throne. Named King Gabriel, a Famine demon with long silver hair and a crown of gold. His reign was well supported by not only his Kingdom, but by all Kingdoms, as he was a fair and just leader who was not Lord of his Kingdom, but the Lord's brother. As such, his path to the Throne was not hindered, and the souls needed were willingly given.
Politics: Kingship had a great strain on King Gabriel, and not long after he took the Throne, his mind began to suffer. Focus spun away and he could not stop the Kingdoms from bickering with one another, nor stop the Lords from internal squabbles. Darkness plagued his reign from this year on.
Politics: King Gabriel's son, a royal named Tsukai, is murdered by an assassin. The King leaves the Silver Throne to find the assassin, and stricken with grief, never returns to it. He rules from a distance, though none respect him as they once did any longer.
- 480 to 492

Politics: The dwarves, weary of the ongoing war, settle within a mountain range filled with an abundance of natural resources.They name their new home Dun Modon.
