THE THIRD AGE
The Age of Knowledge
The Third Age was 14,694 years long.
An age of light and renaissance was begun. Ideas came together, advances in farming made life easier.
The Great City of Rebtide in the Kingdom of Kediath was established by King Arelakon. While the King was not too smart, he knew that having smart people around him could only improve his kingdom. He opened universities, invited scribes and men of knowledge and gave them great houses. People of invention or creative curiosity came together to share ideas - wizards, alchemists, wise sages of different backgrounds. A great Library was established. 4,830
10,452 Alchemist Academy founded.
The age ended in the War of Swords - as the great city of Redtide (some 10 thousand years old) was sacked, and according to legend the island of Sangkelvolm was lost. Many of the learned people of the times were put to the sword - and the world was plunged into a Dark Age
Tivalera - 3rd Era - in which the angles are locked up, 4th Era, 5th Era
Jira began recording history. Jira was settled by people who came up from Farallon, through Malcovia and Alderly and finally settling here. There was probably magic involved, and sailing close to the landmass. Interestingly, there is a longer written history here than on Malcovia and Alderly where they must have come through.
