Era of Dragons
The Ancient Era where dragons were the dominant race. Dragon and non-dragon relations were mixed rangeing from tyranical to benevolent. These relationships lasted for thousands of years with little change. Slowly the dragons started to pull back from the lives of non dragons and left until all dragons had take flight on a giant exodus. No writen history has been found to tell of where the dragons went, though some legends say they flew up into the stars. The only dragon that did not leave was the Dragon god Keno who still sits in his temple unmoveing since the last of his kin left.
Year With No Sun
The Year after the dragon exudus was filled with famine and death as crops failed. The dead were often piled in mass graved to keep up with the dead. The following year the skies started to clear. The ash that had fallen the previous year made the ground very furtile so crops grew quickly and healthy, this fixed the famine but the damage was already done. Many towns had already starved to death the building swallowed up by piles of ash. With the dragons gone the young races startd to form kingdoms and individual cultures. Scholors have dubed the current age the young age.
