-922 UTD The Tsädhayo Standard Calendar, later the Thurásin Standard, is invented and adopted by the people who lived along the River Tsädh in Thurásin, to simplify negotiations and trade.
The Theocracy of Dyiiladuun, after 7 years of digging up and selling the dragon bones found in its central mountains, finally learned of the consequence of its actions. 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.
Ngaabalumi, the former leader of Dyiiladuun, was finally dragged from his sanctuary in 52 Destruction, made to answer for his negligence and greed which caused Dyiiladuun's end. After a trial before the descendants of many Dyiiladuunawa, he was found guilty of destroying the country, and was executed near its remains.
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.
Buckling under the pressure of the Urisoril Empire, the countries of Ozäxa and Lavüdh decided to prevent their collapse by merging. With the marriage of Princess Därra of Ozäxa and Princess Saxavis of Lavüdh, the two become one diarchy, equally ruled by both.
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.
After centuries of northern supremacy, the Kingdom of Kuwvyana was attacked from the east by the Kingdom of Xiy Kiiquldast. They failed to make significant ground against their attackers, and more of their territory was lost. The final nail in the coffin, for many, was the capture and execution of the Kuwvyanamii monarchy. While groups continued to oppose Xiy Kiiquldast's control, Kuwvyana fell.
While out celebrating his birthday with large portions of the royal family, the ship carrying Prince Külvisko of Zdärrözadh capsized off the coast. With the exception of three members of the crew, all aboard perished. A tragedy in it's own right, it is considered an inciting incident for the later Central War.
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. While presented as a small and localised event by the Ozäxa-Lavüdhayo diarchy, many predicted it would last far longer. This conflict would quickly balloon into the Central War, and sparked the Era of War.
After more than four decades of on-again off-again war throughout central Thurásin, official peace was finally secured in the Treaty of Üniyodh. While legitimising the claim of Ozäxa-Lavüdh over the majority of the territory of Zdärrözadh, it also granted many states their independence and solidified in law the defacto independence of others, such as the Duchy of Ovuk.
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.
As plague swept Thurásin, the people of Qariy grew increasingly sick of the control of Xiy Kiiquldast. Tensions soon boiled over into a full blown riot, best shown by the burning of the Grand Church of Qariy. All the priests present were killed, and what few escaped the initial slaughter were tracked down and arrested. Though Xiy Kiiquldast still held parts of the island's east, their era of supremacy was coming to a close.
Following years of growing disappointment and anger at the royal family, the populace of Ijwavya rose up to depose them. The royal family fled to the nearby Kuwvyana, and a provisional military government was established with the goal of transitioning smoothly to democracy.
With very little warning to anyone except the country's prime minister, King Xauko XI of Varrzaxadh announced the immediate dissolution of the monarchy, to be replaced with a democratically elected head of state. This transition was surprisingly peaceful, despite the anger of Xauko's extended family.
After requests for democracy were denied, the northern provinces of Sambogen arose in open revolt. After only a few years of conflict, they claimed independence as Shern Üreogla.
Conflict erupted in the north west when Kuwvyana invaded the outlying islands of Ijwavya, ostensibly to restore the deposed monarchy of the country. A difficult 8 year war ensued for control of the islands, with Ijwavya's continental neighbours coming to their aid. At war's end, Kuwvyana retained all but one of the islands, but acknowledged Ijwavya's democracy as the legitimate government.
Varrzen II of Sambogen finally acknowledgs the independence of Shern Üreogla, and relinquishs all claims to the territory.
The Dyiiladuun Fleet is utterly destroyed off the south-eastern coast of Thurásin by a creature known only as the Abravost Dragon. Of the many dozens of crew on board the four ships, only three survive - Captain Jemi Numaatu Muushadang, Tevaris Varn, and Dyaba Ladura. Their rescue by Merfolk and delivery to a safe port in Lawaguum is considered so momentous as to spark the Era of Return. 27 Klarid 386 AC
