    Vennesholm Founded

  • 129 BCE

    Emergence of Orcs

    A new species of humanoid, dubbed the orcs, emerges from the swamps of Maolnah. War-like and generally vicious, they divided themselves into families and mostly hunted for food in small semi-permanent settlements.

    Osmaria Founded

    The orcs organize into a theocracy worshipping Diodros, beginning to spread their influence southward and into the Straits of Altis.
  • 83 BCE

    Eshar Founded

    The various groups of nomadic humans in southern Ubul, mostly the Isthern Desert, form the city-state of Eshar due to security anxieties concerning the increasing threat of the orcs spreading along the west coast of the Dioan Lakes.
  • 64 BCE

    First Osmarian Crusade

    Osmarian crusaders are sent southward towards Eshar, though the harsh climate of the desert, which the Osmarian forces were not prepared for, greatly disadvantaged them, and Eshar, who had been significantly increasing its defenses since its founding, easily held them off.

    Lacriaya Annexation into Ceshania

  • 89

    Second Osmarian Crusade

    Osmaria directed its focus to the region across the Straits of Altis. Vennesholm, out of the way of the crusade, was unaffected, but the cernine and scattered human residents of the Elenal Forest were devastated by the forces. While originally a strong push to the east, the Kurshen Mountains posed an impassible barrier and the crusaders were forced to retreat back to Osmaria after supplies dwindled.
  • 106

    Dastos Founded

    One settlement along the Straits of Altis in particular, Dastos, rose to great wealth due to extremely successful investments and its size fueled its reputation and subsequent traffic.

  • 174

    Tumestein/Eshar Conflicts

    The new Tumestein colony clashed with Eshar settlers, who had begun to spread to the Malen desert and were eventually forced out due to the might of Rusmor's navy backing Tumestein.
  • 198

    Third Osmarian Crusade

    The third Osmarian crusade was meant to attempt the Kurshen Mountains with more preparation, though the emergence of Dastos between the second and third crusades was unexpected and the orcs sacked Dastos, thinking it was Ceshania.

  • 314

    Fleo Crana Founded

    The tarago of the Fleumos Archipelago lived in small villages in the mountainous islands, though Fleo Crana grew to a size large enough to consider it a city-state.
  • 427

    Fourth Osmarian Crusade

    The fourth Osmarian crusade is ongoing and has lasted more than a century. Rusmorian forces held off Osmarian forces in the Kurshen mountains until Ceshania fell, and are now slowly dwindling.

    Ceshania, for unknown reasons, broke apart from Iacomera and slid into the ocean.
