Major Eras

DA – Divine Age – Official creation lore for most religions begins here, describing the creation of the world, and the rise of the current pantheons. It is considered a widely held open secret that the world existed prior to this point, but it’s unclear what form it took.

WA – The Age of War – During this era the Gods openly factionalized and warred with each other on multiple planes, including the Prime Material Plane and the Elemental Plane of Shadow. Much of creation was destroyed, warped, or blasted in what came to be known as the War of Light and Darkness, and numerous races eventually dwindled and died off due to the age long conflict.

TA Triune Age – The ascent and continuing rise of humans in the world begins with the Triune Age, after the Concordance went into effect among the remaining gods. With the gods bound to their respective planes, and working through intermediaries and mortals, the wars dimmed significantly in power, allowing the mortal races to once again flourish.
