History

Age of Myth

During the Age of Myth, the Beastbridge, a land bridge that connects Aspiria and Bataar to Vitrolia and other lands is conquered by Orruks that fight the giant beasts, and extort and fight any mortals that tries to cross it. In order to put a stop to this the Aspirians ignite the Kingling Forest and consuming many Orruk tribes in flames. The beastbridge is reopened for trade.[1a]

The Kindling Forest continues to burn through magic, making a permanent barrier between the civilizing west and the middle regions of the Great Parch. The middle tribes descend into civil war and Aspiria and Bataar leave them to it.[1a]

Jealous of the Aspirian sucess, the Golvarians make an alliance with the Vitrolians and cross Skyheim Peaks to attack their caravans with tides of living skeletons. However Vitrolian allegiance is bought by Bataar and they turn at a critical moment.[1a]

Age of Chaos

During the Age of Chaos, a number of refugees from Vitrolia were forced to flee and seek shelter in Aspiria. Faced with Aspirian prejudices, many Vitrolians were forced into a life of crime to survive.[3a]
