Timeline of Mondiir

The Dawn Age (The Dawn Gods Rule Without Hierarchy)

  • Depending on the time, the Dawn War Gods are the pantheon during this time.
  • It is unclear when, but the first kingdom was started by the dragons: King Bahamut and Queen Tiamat.
  • It is also unclear when, but there was a great meteor which hit Mondiir at this time, wiping out the dinosaurs and many of the dragons. This began the Ice Age, which led to the Flood Age, wiping out enough of the large beasts and dragons to allow smaller life to flourish.
  • 6404 First elven kingdom started by King Corellon and Queen Sehanine, the star and the moon. They found the first Wizarding school in their city of Elvhen. This would eventually become known as the School of Invention. The Primeval Guardian, Beast, and Hunter Conclaves are founded.

The first Dragonborn are born. The first half-dragons are created. The Dragon War, eventually called the Dawn War, begins. Bahamut’s equal treatment of these “lesser dragonbloods” would lead to their split during this war.
