Times of MagicThe aravitourus were beginning to establish themselves by the end of the Never Ending Crisis. Unlike many of the younger races, their people worked together from the beginning under the Yuigary Empire. Magic has always been a powerful resource that was fixed upon living creatures. They sought a way for tools to use magic to like themselves. This would be the first time in known history that technology was a priority over magic. However, this fascination was not with the innovation, but the use of magic beyond casting. They wanted devices that could change the magical world not the natural one. For a time, they succeeded. The elves were extremely envious of their progress. Conflict was inevitable as both of their borders began to connect. The War of Powers began when one of the elven diplomats was killed during a malfunction of one of the aravitourus devices. It was a war of flying machines and Destructive Towers. The war lasted for years, but till has been record about the actual events. Its suggested that the elves won the war and gained present day Areus Moor Plains and war reparations. The ending result would begin the end of the Yuigary Empire. The debt hurt their economy and began a downward spiral.
Collapse of the AravitourusWith the human populations organizing and liberating themselves from aravitourus control, it wasn't long before conflict ensued. During this time, many of the aravitourus war machines were dominate due to the vast amount of resources they need to power them, which they lost due to their economic collapse. From nearly all sides they were attacked. To prevent the enemy from getting the up hand, they destroyed their cities and their devices. They were so successful that our expeditions have been fruitless to recover anything. Eventually the humans took over any remaining cities. However, these cities were made for the aravitourus and not for humans. Many of these cities were reduced to rubble and built atop of to cement their dominance over their people and the region. The human kingdoms were dedicated into ensuring their control over the region. The aravitourus had been historically abusive to the humans during their reign of control and now the humans do not want it to return again. Culture was banned, books were burned, in general their culture systematic wiped out. This resulted in most forms of aravitourus gone completely from history. We now only have what remains.
Preservation of AraThe aravitourus people since the rise of the Imperium, have cultivated what they could of their lost culture. Many have turned smalls sections of cities into their our culturally significant sections for them to live. These groupings are called "Aravita Vlen" in their old language. From inns and bars to shops and stages, the areas are filled densely with culture from their past and present. The cities themselves are mostly in the northern half of the Imperium with them rarely in the south.
