HistoryThe face of Khorvaire saw many rulers rise and fall before the current age. Long after the demons had been defeated and the goblins' empire had fallen, human settlers arrived on Khorvaire from the continent of Sarlona. Many races, including dwarves and halflings, already had homelands on Khorvaire. humans began to trade with these races and establish ties. Elves seeking a new way of life migrated from their home in Aerenal. They created the nation of Valenar and settled in many other nations as well. In time, the humans and their allies controlled the entire central region of the continent. Dragonmarks first appeared on Khorvaire, leading to the rise of the dragonmarked houses as mercantile powers. When Galifar was established, uniting the Five Nations, an age of prosperity and advancement followed. Magic was mastered, leading to the sparkling towers of Sharn, agricultural abundance, and conveniences such as the lightning rail. Galifar encompassed the entire continent for a time, but the Last War splintered the kingdom. The Five Nations separated again. Many chieftains and would-be kings in uncivilized areas petitioned to create independent nations.
