The Long Before
The ages before the coming of the gods (aka bcg) are divided into the following distinct periods from latter to older:
The age of mortals
est from 7000 bcg to this day
The age of mortals dawned with the rebellion of man. This historic event marked the world and the surprising victory over the forces of the gray elves inspired other races to join the fight and force the elves back into their flying cities(many fell as the amount of spellcasters on the “lesser races” increased). The elves scored one final victory in their retreat in a location that later became the fabled Fellfoes. The gray elves disappeared as a major race(with only few clusters remaining on the prime today) and the Ille’fey retreated to Lamiria.
The age of elves
est from 12000- 7000 bcg
To this day the seat of power of the Dragons in Shekal lies somewhere in the Dragon isles. From there the dragons reigned over the prime and they finally retreated there, as the gray elves and Ille’fey, with the help of the awakened(spellcasters of the other races) and the dragonborn(favored by the dragons and living on the dragon isles), eventually ended their rule. The age of elves was prosperous and the elven sub-races thrived. The orcs and goblins served as slaves and the humans, dwarves, gnomes, centaurs and halflings had only farming villages paying tribute to the grand Elven empire.
The age of Dragons
est 25000-12000 bcg
The relation between dragons and giants deteriorated as the giants became increasingly proud. The red dragons eventually persuaded the council to show these overgrown children that they demand respect. As the dragon forces roamed the sky and took over the three major giant cities, the last word was spoken in the chamber of relics and the giant empire bowed to the dragon rule. The various giant sub-races retreated to Inolli with the exception of the Magharon who eventually deteriorated and are the fathers of the Korr, Trolls and the remaining giants of Shekal. The chamber of relics was eventually looted by the dragons leaving only the walls and the throne room(Now sunk somewhere east of Merdiff). At the end of the age of Dragons the chromatic and metallic where already at war with the Red ruling over the chromatic and the Gold ruling the metallic(this was the chance the elves found).
The age of Giants
est 30000-25000 bcg
The blood war raged on the prime for two millenia and at the end the giants formed an alliance with the dragons and Ille’fey and with a final ritual they sealed all outsiders from the prime. During the age of giants almost all races bow before their power with the exception of dragons.
The age of Demons
est 32000-30000 bcg
As the age of Demons dawned on Shekal the battle against the Celestial forces was one-sided. The combined forces of fiends, devils and demons pushed them back to their planes and only minor resistance was left. As expected the Demons betrayed the Devils and they proceeded to consume the prime. For many this is the start of the fabled blood war.
The age of Life
est 33000 bcg
During the age of Life most forms of life where placed on the prime material plane and the heavens and hells where filled with the denizens. At the end of the age of life the celestial forces battle against the forces of the devils for rule over the prime.
The age of Division
before 33000 bcg.
During the age of Division the Disc was formed and the planes and dimensions where extracted and divided into separate planes.
The primal creation
The time of the primal creation has not been estimated by scholars but the generally accepted time is somewhere around one hundred thousand years ago. During this age the foundations of the world where formed with the amorphous material planes being controlled by the elemental planes.
