Our Story So Far...

Welcome to the timeline! This illustration aims to provide a chronological overview of the IC history of our server by showing some details of the larger events. Due to space limitation, we've had to be rather selective with what to show in this timeline, and the time markers are, for the sake of convinience, RL-time based.

The Barriers Fall
The Barriers Fall

After a long 500 years the barriers surrounding the islands of Sa'el flicker and then fade away, freeing the world again.

The various surviving humans rapidly make their way to the surrounding islands from their home, other returning to their original birthplace or exploring.

An uneasy peace is quickly formed as leaders of the various islands fear starting a new Great War.


Kingdom Of Aeternia
Kingdom Of Aeternia

In the Kingdom of Aeternia the barriers falling allows the Queen's long lost sister to return home, along with what is left of the force that went with her.

Whilst most rejoice, it is clear tension is present and the centuries away from home have changed the princess and her force.

Crasite Falls
Crasite Falls

Despite the Mad King’s loss, the armies of Ker’Nadai moved onto Crasite. Using chemical weapons to enrage the Wyverns, the Island of Crasite was wiped of all human life. Ker’Nadia’s fleets moved towards Aeternia to repeat the process.


An Unlikely Rescue
An Unlikely Rescue

The traders of Zault appeared on Aeternia, and the Mad King attacked those that showed up to speak with them. The fight ended in death on both sides, including the “Mad King” who was executed after performing a “Mercy killing” on Mary Stringwall.

Those still on Aeternia fled the Island as the Navy fleet from Ker’Nadia closed in on the Island. Many chose to head towards the island of Xendaris to start a new life for themselves.

The new Islanders of Xendaris were greeted with a grand feast arranged by the Traders after weeks of work settling the Island. The Islanders had typically split into 4 groups. The Guardians of the lost, The Free Sanguine Union, Auxilliante Deo, and The New Jericko Trading Company.

The Island was host to a strange, nameless individual part of a group called. “The Acolyte’s of Kha’al. Claiming that the group's purpose was to investigate and learn from the Obelisk. The Settlers helped him get to the top of the largest snowy mountain, so that he could investigate the Obelisk. As he attempted to learn from the large floating monolith, A giga was suddenly there with the settlers, and panic took over. All those on the island fled the creature, and all managed to escape the gigas jaws.


The Volcano Awakens
The Volcano Awakens

A rumbling sound would echo out from the Volcano, increasing in volume as the ground began to tremor. Once the rumbling sound had reached it’s peak, a loud “Booming” noise would echo out from the large mountain, almost as if the entire formation was splitting in half. Should anyone be floating above the volcano they would see a large crack split straight down the middle of the popular metal farming location.

As the rumbling continued the gap would seep to get larger. A dull red light, and a hissing sound would radiate out from the crack. A loud bang would echo out, as the pressure from the now active volcano bubbled up towards the surface, and fought against the rock above. The Blue Obelisk would suddenly emit a radiating blast of light. Both the Red and the Green obelisk would follow suit casting the Island in a strange mixture of colour.

Finally the pressure building in the volcano would become to much for the rock to sustain and with one loud radiating boom, loud enough to shatter glass, the Volcano would erupt sending large boulders and chunks of rock flying. The lava itself remained rather contained on the actual Volcano, the rocks on the other hand would hurdle back down to the ground, causing widespread damage around the vicinity of the volcano.

The top of the volcano, once a place of mining, had become a boiling turmoil of molten lava, the passive mountain now active and threatening any who dared to climb to it’s summit.
