All of Thylean history lies here. Ranging from "The Dark Ages", a time before mortals had the far-reaching civilisations that now bless the land, to the Oath of Peace was sworn and hostilities ended, to ofcourse, to the centuries since then, also known as "The Golden Age" or "The time of Mortals". Be aware that different cultures have different opinions on what actually happened in our long storied histories and there is some objection on the times before out great Kingdoms being called "The Golden Age" but as this work has been researched and penned by the esteemed Academy of Mytros you reader can be assured that it is entirely correct.

Current Era (CE) > 0
The time after the The Oath of Peace is sworn also known as "The Golden Age" or "The time of Mortals". The settlement of Mytros expanded into a great city, and it was protected by the twin Colossi forged by Volkan—beacons of civilization on the shores of a wild frontier. New settlers came from beyond Forgotten Sea, and the mortal population of Thylea swelled. The children of the Dragonlords became kings, and their dynasties ruled over new cities that sprang up across the land.

Dawn Age (DA) 2000 — 0
These are the times before the oath of peace was sworn and mortals did not have far-reaching civilisations. There is little written down from these times.
Height of the Gygan empire ~2,000 DA
In the centuries before the founding of Mytros, mortals had no dominion over the untamed lands of Thylea. The Gygans, an ancient civilization of cyclopes, ruled most of the land with The Amazons being their chief enemy.
Arrival of the Mortals 800 DA
Humans started washing up on the shores of Thylea, in numbers great enough that small settlements were made.
One fateful day, a flight of powerful bronze dragons arrived on Thylea’s shores, each bearing a great champion from the Old World.
Founding of the first settler kingdoms 18 DA
With The Order of the Dragonlords help, the mortals were able to go from ramshackle villages to the first steps towards establishing kingdoms.
The First War begins 14 DA
The great powers that ruled Thylea grew jealous. Sydon and Lutheria, the Twin Titans, immortal children of the mother goddess, amassed great armies to eradicate the city. The Order of the Dragonlords responded by gathering all the mortals in Thylea into a united assault on the native races, and so began the First War.

The cost of victory was great: by the time the war ended, the last of the dragons had been killed defending the city they loved most.
The Five Gods appear 10 DA
Perhaps most miraculous of all, however, was the appearance of the Five Gods. These immortal figures descended from heaven when the tide had turned against the Dragonlords. Some have claimed that they were manifestations of Thylea’s own desire to protect her immigrant children. They took the form of mortal men and women, but their eyes were alight with the fire of divinity.
Mytros ascends to the heavens 1 DA
Such was the anger of the Titans that their retaliation threatened to sunder the very foundations of Thylea. In the end, Mytros, the goddess of dawn, sacrificed herself and ascended once more to the heavens in order to rescue her beloved city from destruction.
