Timeline

Time in Deso is tracked based on years after the God War. Before the God War, there are no historical records existing before the God War.

Pre GW // The Peaceful Times: In the beginning of history, the Gods provided everything for the people of their land. Crime, poverty, and hunger were unheard of. The land was a utopian beauty the people roamed free of worry or care.

00-28 GW // The God War: The Gods were betrayed by one of their number, Phiv. Thousands of people were killed in an instant as the Betrayer turned on them and pitted them against one another. The other Gods responded as quickly as possible. Phiv used a Godstone, the remaining power of a dead god, to increase his power enough to go toe to toe with the others. The battle raged on for years, though to the Gods, it was only moments. When Phiv found that his power alone was not enough to defeat the others, he turned his destruction on the people. One by one, the other Gods sacrificed themselves to protect the people. The noble Devil God Agyss was the last god standing, he was also the last to act against Phiv as they were friends. His inaction had cost thousands of lives, people say that it was at that point that he attacked with a ferocity never before seen. He defeated Phiv, but, it is said, his heart exploded and he was driven mad. In a final valiant act, the God Kai killed the now Mad Agyss before more harm could be done, sending them both beyond the barrier.

28 GW-343 GW // Our Rebirth: The time of rebuilding was not an easy one for the mortal races of for the first time in known history they were forced to fend for themselves. It was as if history had to restart. They had to learn to farm, hunt, build shelter, and other things that were previously provided to them by the Gods. The continents were named and their different governing bodies were established.

343 GW-345 GW // The Dwarven War: In present day, this is often now called, the First Dwarven War. The Dwarves emerged in Albrook through the gates of their grand city Thorvarin. It was a surprise to the surface races, the dwarves were merely legend and a dwarf had never been seen on the surface of the Deso. Their initial attacks were backed by fierce and relentless tactics. This time was hard on the world, especially on Albrook, where the dwarves had emerged from. In the end, the Albrook King, Jorian united with the elves and drove the Dwarves back underground. The elves, led by their Queen Urani, sealed the Gates of Thorvarin with the dwarves inside.

345 GW-359 GW // The Magical Revolution: After the dwarves were driven back through the Gates of Thorvarin, the world once again rebuilt. Albrook and the rest of the world began delving deeper into the realms of magic. More and more humans and other races began to emerge as powerful wielders of the arcane arts. Magic became more common and more powerful. It began to defy even the laws of death. Necromancy became a problem, and an entire city called Sairagg was destroyed by an undead army.

359 GW-380 GW // The Dragon Era: The Dragon Era was a time when the majestic creatures known as Dragons appeared. Though the dragons have always been around, this was a time in which they would reveal themselves to the world at large. Several heroes emerged at this time and became important figureheads in the new world.

387 GW-389 GW // The Great Union: This was another time of hardship for Deso and its people. This time was host to the second Dwarven War. A god was on earth that was called Savior, this god existed within a mortal orc named Thwak. Thwak, along with his band of adventurers, united the inhabitants of the world to counter attack the dwarves. Savior led the attack and the dwarven forces were repelled. However, through dark magic cast by a group known as the Outcasts, the mad god Agyss was revived. Everyone present in the area was slain within moment following the mad god’s resurrection. Agyss began a reign of destruction unlike the world had ever seen. He destroyed a great deal of Albrook, stopping at a Quinn temple. When he stopped, he set his sights on Seromicos. Immediately crossing thousands of miles, the Mad God destroyed Seromicos’s capital city in mere moments. Savior managed to protect his group and they persued the Mad God. After overcoming impossible odds which saw the deaths of Thwak (and the passing of Savior to the God Realms), master hunter Dios, a powerful Golem Igneous, and high gnomish wizard Scrabble, the Mad God was defeated and sent back to the God Realms by the Monk Finderdot. The world was once again saved.
