The Age of Creation

ca. 1,000,000 – 500,000 years ago

History from the Age of the Creation is vague, but what is known (by very few) is that approximately one million years ago, the Legendary Wyrm created the world that would come to be known as Wyrmshadow. It awakened on a desolate planet, a place stripped of all life, unable to recall who it was or from where it had come. The Legendary Wyrm felt a great yearning to create a new world in its shadow using this dead planet as its vast canvas.

The Age of the Ancients

ca. 500,000 – 300,000 years ago

The Ancients set about to continue the works of their creator, collaborating to build a temple in honor of the Legendary Wyrm on the northern continent amid the highest of the mountains. Each of the Ancients wished their creator to be pleased with their efforts when it awoke from its rest.

The Age of the Lost

ca. 300,000 – 100,000 years ago

The former Ancients were reduced in their loss of power to savage existences. Many died in the ensuing centuries, unable to come to terms with the chaos and turmoil they had created in the world. Some, however, grew to adapt and evolve to survive and take advantage of the few advantages left them. The first of the Elves, Dwarves, and Men were born, the first generations of the races that would one day inherit the world of Wyrmshadow itself.

The Age of the Dragons

ca. 100,000 – 50,000 years ago

Unbeknown to the Elves and Humans and other races of Wyrmshadow, their moment of peaceful reign would be short lived thanks largely to the introduction of Dragons into the world. Tiamat and Bahamut. Despite being eternally bound to one another as mates, Tiamat and Bahamut came to despise one another.

The Age of the Demons

ca. 50,000 – 20,000 years ago

Asmous had a hand in much of the turmoil of the past millenia, his agents secretly insinuating themselves into the various cultures that developed over the past ages. All this was in preparation for the wayward Ancient’s return to Materia. Upon his appearance, the Wyrm bade Aos, Nus, and Phi accompany it back to Materia once again to deal with this new threat to creation.

The Age of the Gods

ca. 20,000 – 2,000 years ago

The war against Asmous and his legions had taken a terrible toll on Wyrmshadow. The Legendary Wyrm was lost, humanity had been decimated, and even the Elders, now known as Gods, were dealt tremendous damage. They realized that they would soon die from their injuries if not for a drastic course of action.

The Age of the Phoenix

ca. 2,000 years ago – 50 years ago

At the dawn of the Age of the Phoenix, a child, a boy no older than ten, walked up the steps to the Imperian Royal Palace to deliver a message to then Empress Dihan II. That message was one whose impact would alter the course of history, an ominous list of races and the curses Asmous the Foul had levied against them.

The Age of Shadow

50 years ago – 28 years ago

The Shadow Knight rose. The gods fell. The world followed. For over two decades, all of Wyrmshadow was gripped in terror, as the Shadow Empire held the world in a relentless stranglehold. Without the divine protection of the gods, it was not hard to believe this was the beginning of the end of the world.
