TIMELINE / EVENT
  • Primodial Era
    The rise of the various Godly Realms around ancient Yverde led to the War of the Gods. The Kingdom of Heaven came out victorious and cut off the rest of the Godly Realms from Yverde.

    Heaven enjoyed a time of relative peace for about 4,000 years until the uprising of an alliance between the Dragon Domains and Hell and the arrival of the Crimson Queen. Although they won the resulting wars, it severely limited their remaining influence on Yverde.

    The Germanic tribes from Earth arrived on Yverde in 3000 BC (Before the Collapse) and subjugated the natives of Sandrau and Eostre, forming a large colonial empire before getting cut off from their homeworld.

    The Primodial Era ended in 1 AC (After the Collapse) after the collapse of the Sandrau Empire at the hands of the Dragonoids.

  • First Empire Era
    The Empire of Sandrau collapsed due to great internal pressures caused by the Dragonoid Riots. The Empire's successor, Sandrau Omnya, struggled to establish control over its former subjects and prevent their own decline, and thus the entire continent entered the First Dark Age.

    After years of gruelling war, two powerful empires were formed over the Sandrau Empire's former territory: the Westmarch Empire and Eostre Commonwealth, marking the beginning of the First Empire Era. These two empries were led by brother and sister Asger Gomryrth and Gunhild Germaynth, respectively.

    Both empires were politically close. They often shared knowledge, formed a mutual defence pact against the Kingdom of Heaven, and eventually agreed to form the Union of Harmonia.

    The Union lasted for around 240 years until Asger decided to ally himself with the Demon Queen, forming a rift between him and his sister. After infighting between Imperial and Commonwealth factions crippled the Union, the two states fought a bloody civil war, which the Commonwealth faction won, thus ending the First Empire Era in 270 AC.

  • Second Empire Era
    The Second Empire Era began with the formation of United Harmonia under Dragon Empress Gunhild Germaynth’s leadership. Harmonia initially suffered from overextension inside former Westmarch territory. Sabotage, rebellion, and treason was rampant until Gunhild promoted Asmund Gomryrth, Asger Gomryrth’s son and the new head of the Gomryrth Dynasty, as Co-Ruler of the United Harmonia.

    Harmonia soon reached its First Golden Age, with rapid development and growth, peaceful coexistence among its subjects, conquests in Eastern Volland, and the discovery of three mysterious overseas continents: Skaldiheim, a quiet land with a year-round blizzard; Einnfit, an isolated island continent home to the mysterious Catfolk; and Muria, a land of great jungles under a blanket of heavy fog.

    The First Golden Age came to an end with the emergence of various new and old threats. The Christian Kingdom of Vallanchia, with help from Heaven, in western Sandrau, and the mighty Eastern Dragon Empire in Eostre. Harmonia rallied the largest army of its time, numbering over 500,000 troops, to fight off these threats.

    Despite their victories against those two enemies, Harmonia and its subjects were plagued with corruption, instability, famine, and poverty. When Empress Gunhild abdicated in 950 AC, handing rulership over to her son Gudmund, Harmonia entered a state of decline from which it never recovered, until it finally ended in 1503 AC, when the Scarlet War broke out.

  • Third Empire Era
    In 1450, Harmonia got caught up in a worldwide catastrophic event dubbed the Century of a Thousand Wars. It was caused by numerous factors, mainly a lengthy and harsh summer, causing droughts and famine, followed by a supervolcanic eruption in Einnfit.

    The rebellions and wars sparking all around the world soon reached United Harmonia. Deep in the jungles of Volland, a pretender to the Harmonic throne rose to challenge Asmund Gomryth and Gudmund Germaynth’s rule. She was Ylva Raymryt, formerly known as Ylva Gomryrth, Asmund’s first child. She rallied a great force of beastkind tribes who all vowed to fight for her.

    Ylva waged an all-out war against United Harmonia, known as the Scarlet War, and easily won numerous battles against the weakened Harmonic forces. During the decisive Battle of Iltaria, Ylva effectively crushed a Harmonic army numbering around 300,000 using just 75,000 troops.

    After the deaths of Emperor Gudmund, Asmund, and the rest of the Thirteen Nobles, Ylva Raymryt was crowned the Empress of Imperial Harmonia, successor to United Harmonia. Her reign saw many of the problems facing the previous regime solved, and brought many milestones in innovation such as the printing press, electricity, industrial manufactories, and others. Imperial Harmonia also became home to many philosophers, artists, wizards, scientists, and other significant people. Her rule marked the beginning of both the Second Golden Age and the Third Empire Era.

    As time passed by, Imperial Harmonia waged several wars of conquest, such as the subjugation of Einnfit, Vallanchia, Indiven, Atlantea, Eiruve. They also launched successful colonial expeditions into Muria, Skaldiheim, Skovland, and Vinland. This made Imperial Harmonia the largest empire the world has ever known.

    In 1900, Ylva declared a total war against the Eastern Dragon Empire, the Nine Realms, and the Kingdom of Heaven, all without Hell’s aid. Despite all odds, she managed to dismantle the Eastern Dragon Empire before going to subjugate Heaven, which became the crowning jewel of her conquests. Such victories came with a great cost, with millions of deaths, including some of her most trusted and competent companions.

    After all this, she abdicated from the throne of Imperial Harmonia and ascended as the new God-Queen of the Nine Realms and the Kingdom of Heaven. She left the throne to her son Erland and daughter Reako, who ruled with her remaining subordinates as advisors. Thus ended the Third Empire Era and began the slow but peaceful transition to the Fourth Empire Era.

  • Fourth Empire Era
    Under Emperor Erland and Empress-Consort Reako’s combined leadership, Imperial Harmonia underwent a slow but peaceful transition to a more democratic constitutional monarchy, with the Emperor retaining some power. Many of Harmonia’s vassal states were granted higher autonomy, and were also was given a chance to join the Concordia Intermarium, or CI, a global political union centred on Imperial Harmonia, or become fully independent.

    Most of Harmonia’s subjects remained loyal and joined the CI. Some old Harmonic enemies even joined the CI to gain access to trade, knowledge exchanges, technological development, mana sharing, and a mutual defence pact against the remaining Godly Realms, which have now established a connection back to Yverde 10,000 years the War of the Gods.

    Thyra Raymryt’s rise to power as Head of the Concordia Intermarium in 2015 marked the beginning of the Fourth Empire Era. Yverde's technological advancement and infrastructure development skyrocketed. Then, many predicted that Yverde will become an interplanetary civilisation in under 50 years.

    Unfortunately, things changed for the worse when Thyra succumbed to the Dragon Fever, a mental illness said to represent the fury of the Seven Deadly Sins. The culprit behind this was likely the Crimson Queen. The CI suffered lots of problems, causing backlash from its members. The biggest riots erupted in Indiven’s capital city, Biringapura, demanding a complete reform of the organisation, but these were violently put down under Thyra’s orders.

    Due to these incidents, many member states of the CI decided to leave the organisation and formed one of their own, the Manus Libertatis. The ML led by Aslaug Raymryt, Ylva Raymryt's youngest child, and vowed to fight for freedom from the Concordia Intermarium's tyranny.

    For the next 30 years, global politics was dominated by the cold war raging between the Concordia Intermarium and the Manus Libertatis. Tensions rose day by day until it all boiled over into the Second Great War. The death and devastation that resulted from the war was extreme.

    The Council of the Ten Realms, led by God-Queen Ylva Raymryt, agreed to intervene and stop the world from going through what had happened before. They intervened in the Second Great War but joined neither side. This intervention caused the rise of Cult of Ylva Raymryt, forming a third faction in the conflict.

    The war came to an end in 2061 when the Ten Realms subdued both the Concordia Intermarium and Manus Libertatis’s leaderships. Ylva Rayrmyt decided on a treaty to settle the two’s differences, offering generous concessions to both organisation’s members, which were all agreed upon since much of them were formerly ruled by her. This ended the troublesome Fourth Empire Era.

  • Fifth Empire Era
