Ethnis Timeline

Tremulous Era

... 7618

On their respective homeworlds, Humanity and the Verin organize into early tribes. Among the Verin the first Sovereign, Kyzan, appears, raised from the dead by a higher force (the Wheel) and claiming divinity. Kyzan rules for ~1000 years, unifying the Verin tribes under a single banner and an iron fist. He commits horrible atrocities and advances metaphysics.

Lament Era

The Sazashi rediscovers the Earth Index and follows the Wayhall to Earth, where they and Humanity have first contact. At first it’s good, but tensions inevitably build and war erupts. In the end Aempis is forced to wipe out the billions-large population of Mars to end the war, and Earth becomes a protectorate.

Melancholic Lacuna

20856 21736

A dark age triggered by a Banner attempting to hack the WayHall. It’s unclear which Banner did it, but as a security measure the WayHall close all the Waypoints and the Indices self-destruct. The resulting economic crash plunges the Banners into a longer period of war and in-fighting.

Technological advancements are still had at this time, but it is among a landscape of great disparity and a social structure divided along lines of families, gangs, and factions.

The Banners ultimately restore the core systems, known as the Hub, but do not expand further due to economic and political concerns. The colonies are abandoned.
