The Age of Myth
So this is a link to all of the major historical events from the game (some of which will occur due to the PC’s)
The Primordial Age An unknown time ago.
The primordial age was a time of utter darkness supposedly before the gods. It was the beginning of all things. Even the most powerful of magics do not reach far enough back to gain more then a limited understanding.
The First An unknown time ago
These where the gods first creations. They betrayed the gods due to their punishment over their own greed. Heaven closed its gates to us and when they did demons came.
Dark Times An unknown time ago
The war between the almost godlike First, and demon kind. It almost resulted in our extinction but we barely survived by sacrificing our progenitors we gained freedom.
The Age of Paragons More then 13,000 years ago.
The beginning of recorded time. This is when the very first of our ancient ruins come from, our writing, and the beginning of our culture.
Fate’s Weave Between about 7 and 13 thousand years ago.
The high lord reopened the heavens to us speaking once more to us through lesser deities chosen from our own people. This time resulted in the Legends of Fate a text detailing all of the future of every race that ended when the prophets who protected it destroyed it to keep it out of misunderstanding hands. With its destruction the heavens closed their gates once more and have been silent since.
Age of Magic It ended some 3700 years ago and went back 7000 years.
Following the amazing capabilities and power of Legends of Fate these where the kingdoms who survived the destruction of the only recorded utopian empire. Most modern cultures can derive their background from the empires of this age. It ended at the conclusion of a great war between the elven kingdom and the human kingdom that predated Golarion.
Age of Faith It ended 22 years ago and started 3648 years ago.
This indicated the beginning of what most consider the modern era, tolerance and peace is proposed more often then not and in the earliest days of the Age of Faith our great empire was born referred to as Golarion. Our empire also marks the beginning and expansion of the Church of the Lord a church that worships the High Divine over lesser deities chosen by his hand. Prophets where chosen of children with utter innocence and upon the ending of their innocence they named their replacement as divinely chosen and entered the priesthood as Scions.
It is felt by most that the Age of Faith came to a close some 20 years ago when the cycle of prophets was broken by an assassination of the last prophet, as a replacement the youngest Scion was chosen to sit in until a new prophet can be found. Unfortunately this has not happened yet and it was been a little over 20 years. Theories abound that something big is happening now.
The Authors are also included in the NPC’s section.

Since she has been promoted to archjudge and while the elven prejudice runs high for her, but a chance to “set the record straight” could not be passed up.

His advice has aided in numerous kingdom endeavours preventing conflict and aiding in diplomatic relations with our less human neighbors.

When asked personal questions her response was no comment.
