The Celestial dragon Jrinta awoke from a centuries-long slumber to destroy the very land the theocracy rested on. Jrinta was only stopped by a combined force of many pact-bound warriors, but Dyiiladuun could not be salvaged.

    The Urisoril Empire had been steadily taking control of the east for a number of years, but their actions didn't come to the attention of Central Thurásin until the year 60 Redemption, when they crossed the southern tip of the Dividing Mountains. As such, despite the fact they had been conquering for many years, it was only now that the Era of Conquest was declared.

    Battle of Ijwavya
    Military action

    After over a century of control of the majority of Thurásin, the first cracks in the Urisoril Empire's grip emerged with their catastrophic loss at the Battle of Ijwavya. The northern Kingdom of Kuwvyana raided the north beaches and pushed Urisoril south, joined at every step by eager locals. Caught entirely off guard and under-prepared, Urisoril was quickly forced to surrender that northern province, which Kuwvyana declared the Kingdom of Ijwavya.   The loss was so significant to the continent that the countries of Central Thurásin declared the next year to be the beginning of an Era of Collapse, prophesying Urisoril's demise.

    Assassination of Naike IV of Ozäxa-Lavüdh
    Life, Death

    Naike IV was one of the two diarchs of Ozäxa-Lavüdh, and well liked by his people. However, his marriage to a Zdärrözadh princess who later became Queen due to the tragic deaths of the royal family made political matters complicated, as the two only had one child who was now set to inherit both countries. The two were adamant the situation could be resolved peacefully, deciding they would raise the child equally between the two countries and let her decide which throne to inherit.
    This, sadly, did not come to pass, as Naike was assassinated while staying in Zdärrözadh. It's widely believed the intended target was his wife, but she was able to escape with their daughter.

    Following many years of growing tensions surrounding who would succeed the throne of Zdärrözadh upon the death of its Queen, Ozäxa-Lavüdh decided to prove its claim in advance through war.

This conflict would quickly balloon into the Central War, and sparked the Era of War.

    Republic of Xiy Kiiquldast declared by Captain Godhzu

    In Captain Godhzu's mind, one of the things holding back the fleet and its allies was their lack of legitimacy in the eyes of outsiders. Thus one of the first things he did upon seizing the captaincy was to declare all territory allied to him to be part of the Republic of Xiy Kiiquldast, the direct legal successor to the old kingdom of the same name. This did little but give an official name to an existing situation, and few of the new republic's neighbours paid it any attention.
