    The Age of the Sindarin Ends
    Era beginning/end

    The immortal elves were not known for keeping much in the way of written records, relying mainly on elaborate oral histories which usually took the form of songs and poetry. To outsiders, they rarely spoke of their past but they came to Hârn from the east around 10,000 BT as one of several stops they planned to make on their way to the Blessed Realm. Unable to resist the pristine beauty of the island, some decided to stay "a while." For three thousand years the Sindarin dwelt in peaceful solitude on Hârn with Siem, their deity and even when the god decided to continue his journey westward after returning to the entrance, some Hârnic elves chose to stay, the Sindarin.

    The Lost Years
    Population Migration / Travel

    Siem and the Sindarin arrived on Hârn. Though no records survive of the time, it has been described as, an age of dragons, noisome trolls, and fell beasts that defy description and harm the eye. The earth so long nurtured by the careful ancients shook with fury at their departure, great floods ravaged the land and Hârn was severed from the greater land... and the ill-starred realm off Nandar-Tem sank beneath the waves.

    Keléstia's Unwitting Champion
    Expedition

    On Earth, a struggling scientist who'd already over shot his time traveling target by five years, attempted to modify his gear to a surprising result. Though originally intended to harness cosmic energy, the adjustment allowed the scientist to harness the energy of Keléstia and use that energy to open portals to the many worlds the energy was connected to including Abeir-Toril. Spending the day traveling between them, the scientist would inevitably run in to trouble on the planet Kèthîra and be forced to enter another type of portal entirely. Expecting to open up a door into a proper doorway, the scientist actually opened a door to The Spire in O’Kuultaele Vairtatiis; where upon he would remained trapped in the city below until his equipment was repaired.
