Time of Chaos (First Epoch)
From D&D Wiki
In the beginning, the Elemental forces grew into great cosmic personification powers. The Elemental forces became divine, timeless, and limitless power. The Elemental Gods are Thetoru The Wind, Thechard The Stone, Theoosh The Water, and Theezine The Fire. The four Gods created mortal life. Thechard The Stone formed flesh from dirt; Theoosh The Water gave power to the mind and blood; Theezine The Fire have power to the heart; and Thetoru The Wind gave breath to the lungs. And then there was mortal life, the races of Pegay, Theros, Phthino, and Cheimon.
As the four races grew in knowledge and numbers, other minor races grew from them. Primitive-dragons developed and grew strong in magic. Primitive-dragons could see, apply, and manipulate the rainbow spectrum of arcane invisible-divine-Wind/Stone/Water/Fire force. Through centuries of conflict and peace, the primitive-dragons dominate the other races and through breeding and magic create Dragonborn, Tieflings, Orcs, Humans, Goblins, Gnomes, Dwarves, and Halflings. The primitive-dragons fought against the Pegay, Theros, Phthino, and Cheimon.
Little is known about the history of the original four races, known as the Ancients, except that they were bipedal, extensive builders, and very powerful. The Pegay had wings. The Theros were tall and great warriors living in large, extensive fortifications. The Phthino had gills and lived underwater. The Cheimon were short and diggers, always living underground in mega complexes.
As the original four races fought and lost to the primitive-dragons and secondary races, the Elemental Gods elevated one leaders from each race to be master and minor god over the seasons. Each Elemental God enhanced one master and minor god over the season. Each new divine being lost its personal identity and assumed the name of its race. Thetoru The Wind elevated Pegay to be The Spring God. Theezine The Fire elevated Theors to be The Summer God. Theoosh The Water elevated Phthino to be The Autumn Goddess. Thechard The Stone elevated Cheimon to be The Winter Goddess. Before the first five kingdoms, the Ancients and primitive-dragons died out and were extinct leaving only legends, decaying fortresses, and their foundation for the other races.
The Five Kingdoms
The first five kingdoms to dominate the world were the Dragonborn Kingdom of Hydraseau, the Tiefling Kingdom of Chi-han-sis, the Human Empire of Umerikah, the Elven Empire of Theaven, and the Dwarven Kingdom of Dwagoold. After many generations, the kingdoms destroyed each other in a bid for dominance over each other, leaving a power vacuum.
Dragonborn Kingdom of Hydrasaeu in the northern-center of the land. Its capital city of Usak with a road to the city of Bursa in the west and a road along the mountains to the city of Ankara. Three hundred miles to the south west on the great river bank is the city of Izmit. Hydrasaeu fights on three fronts with Chi-han-sis, Theaven, and Dwagoold.
Tiefling Kingdom of Chi-han-sis is a coastal plain empire on the west coast. Its capital city of Sawhaj sits on the coast with a road to the south to the city of Akhmim, a road to the north to Tallah, and a road along the coast going north-west to the city of Bani. Chi-han-sis fights on three fronts with Hydrasaeu, Theaven, and Umerikah.
Human Empire of Umerikah is on the east coast and controls the land bridge so it has ports on both sides of the land and access to the west ocean and the east ocean. It capital is Harshan with a road to the east to the city of Chong on the coast, a road to the south to the city of Dalian on the east coast, a road west coming to the city of Amoy and going on to the city of Shantou on the west coast in the Blue Bay. Farther south are two cities that each sit on separate coasts but are joined by an overland road, on the west coast is the city of Nanning and on the east coast is the city of Hengduan. Umerikah fights on three fronts with Chi-han-sis, Theaven, and Dwagoold.
Elven Empire of Theaven rests between two great continental rivers and its capital city of Bihar is in the center of the empire with roads cross-connecting the cities of Datia, Encer, and Thurie; with the city of Mizapur on the Blue Bay at the river mouth. Theaven fights on four fronts with Umerikah, Chi-han-sis, Hydraseau, and Dwagoold.
Dwarven Empire of Dwagoold in the north-east has its capital city of Bamberg. The cities of Bonwolf, Rotthol, and Bavar are not connected by roads. Dwagoold fights on three fronts with Theaven, Umerikah, and Hydraseau.
