History

The City Of Diamonds2033 (896 years ago) was founded by Mizz'ri Thorne'dar was looking for a place to settle with her followers after the Dark Elf city, Mizar'doll or The Place of Pearls as it was also known fell to human retaliation after one to many raids. It slowly grow into a small town until living metal was discovered for the first time in the cavern walls a material which could move with instructions after being charged with magic similar to living stone and living wood the first Automatons were built here because of the this discovery.

  The discover of living metal and the new construction of more advanced machines to make more complicated Automatons caused immigration to the city to grow very fast and by 2502 the city was at its largest shorty before its down fall due them building Automatons that were more and more intelligent and those more sentient.

In 2560 Construct 512, Dancer 96, and Fighter 1600 slowly began plotting a revolution as they recruited for a day of liberation both Automatons and other enslaved peoples such as Orcs, Gnomes, Surface Elves and Dwarves. Their revolution was successful though there was a significant loss of life they took over the city after a few days but fellow Dark Elf settlements can to the defense of The City of Diamonds but it was fully taken over in a month (little over 366 years ago) in the year 2563 they also kicked out the Dark Elves at this time.

Sometime around 28 years after Dark Elf's control of The City of Diamonds was lost some Dwarves moved in after the Var Boldir stronghold fell and the Automatons gave them space in the city as a sort of an apology for behavior under Dark Elf control. taking the Dwarves in during their time of need greatly improved their relationships with all the local dwarven strongholds and to dwarves in general as they had not much experience with the freed Automatons.

  Around the same time, The City of Diamonds sent out its first diplomats to the surface first to the nearby human settlements at first it did not go well as several were destroyed until local Dwarves stood up for them because the Dwarves of Van Boldir were taken in by them. Humans settlements under threat of lucrative trade deals being canceled begrudgingly started listening to the first diplomats leading to less hostility as they eventually started to grasp them were not like their former masters and were just new folks in the area.
