What follows is a brief timeline of events starting with the creation of the world, and running until the present day.  Only the most major events are covered.

All dates are given according to the Elven Calendar.  When the other calendar systems assign their year 0, such will be noted.

2929 I EC: The First Elven Civil War begins.  The Mana War.

2893 II EC: The Fifth Elven Civil War begins.  This is called the 'Elven Cleansing' because many of the same atrocities that occurred in Amara and the Audun wastes occur in Elven territories.  Fear that magic was what open the gates for Nixus to invade and that changelings have infiltrated government lead to what amounts to a witch hunt in almost all of the known territories, Elven, Human, and Dwarven.

No, further than that...
Try South of Mt. Vernon, where Southern Illinois really begins.
