Throughout the history of Aloria, many events have occurred. Some affecting few, some affecting many, some shaking the entire world or merely causing a minor tremor. History is made daily, but ancient history is recorded and discovered fairly infrequently. The tomes and artifacts from long ago might have only been discovered by chance, or been unearthed after long years of research by many people. You can learn about these events, and cultivate great knowledge of Aloria's sizable and interesting history here.
So long ago, yet so important to who we are today|
Ancient History encompasses events that took place before the Cataclysm
, the devastating event which tore apart much of Aloria
. The first Alorians, known only as the Seraph
, ended up bringing about destruction to their people through the overuse of magic. Several civilizations that systematically replaced the Seraph (and each-other) mimicked this in a cycle of repeating Void Invasions
. While some remnants of cultures survived into later periods, Aloria eventually saw the powerful Elven Empire
nearly rise to the same power of the Seraph before they were torn apart. Elsewhere, the origin of a myriad of races and cultures developed, many of which can be seen roaming Aloria today.

Recent History takes place after the Cataclysm, and is much more well-known than the ancient past. During this time, the Elven Empire
and its people divided, while the Ailor
, a marginalized slave people, rose up to rule states of their own. The largest of these, the Regalian Empire
formed a rivalry with the other Alorian superpower, the Songaskian Masaya
. Elsewhere, other races and cultures continued their lives unimpeded by this hostility, and made their own history for the century to come.
