Ancient History

The location for modern-day Poroshenko was first settled more than 5,000 years ago in the 2nd Cycle during the early years of the Old Myltev. The original settlement was destroyed during the Ostry Apocalypse, but a new town named Gavan was created by local bands of pirates in the 4th century of the 3rd Cycle.   Gavan became a vital hub for merchants and pirates eager to move shiploads of goods from one side of Pescat to the other. The pirate kingdom of Myltev, riven by petty feuds and infighting, ensured stability in Gavan to prevent this vital hub of commerce from drying up.

New Ownership

In the year 786, 4th Cycle, a fleet of Glacian ships sailed into Gavan's harbor and claimed the city as their own, renaming it Poroshenko. Myltev's government, still reeling from the death of its leader Cpt. Gordiefsky and the loss of thousands of vessels in a hurricane, was unable to put up any kind of resistance and surrendered the city with minimal casualties. Several skirmishes were fought during the reign of Cpt. Tarkov to seize Poroshenko and put it back in Myltevian hands, but none proved successful. Nikolaj Baratov, the current king of Myltev, has searched for every means necessary for reclaiming the city for his kingdom but the persistent problem of a Lead Kings has forced him to put a conquest of Poroshenko on the back-burner.    Despite the tumult of its recent history, Poroshenko has thrived and prospered in the modern era. The city survived the Sunken God's Reign of Terror remarkably well despite its vulnerable coastal location, thanks in part to the exploits of adventurers from the Royal Knights Brigade. And while the rest of Glace suffers from the political instability caused by Ludmila Tomic's death Poroshenko is currently experiencing an era of unprecedented growth as wealthy nobles and businesses invest in a neutral city far from the trade wars of Sardivelia and other international disputes. While many of Glace's elves have departed for the Elflands following Ludmila's death, many who chose to stay behind are becoming influential players in the city's financial and shipping industries.
