The Fourth (and current) Age of Binaka is marked by the return of magic. It began in the full year 14656 after the start of the first age. The official year numbering is known as Common Time. During this age, the gods frequently walk among mortals. They also each have one or more Scions that represent them and also move among the mortals. Their goal is to much more carefully guide the mortals to a successful civilization, something they have failed at in each of the previous ages.
