A BRIEF HISTORY

Following the end of the Fourth Age, and the great Scourging, the High Men of Kurosia wandered the lands, forsaken. Their homes had been destroyed, and their land broken. The Kurosian had proven a great ally in the war against the Death Queen, and their actions against the Dark Men, and the other races, had made them unwelcome in many lands. Lead by the Eight Wise Ones, who had sealed the Lords of Chaos beyond the Gates of Galen, the Kurosian split into eight tribes, and wandered in search of a new home. One moonless night, a new star was found to be shining far to the east. Canus, the leader of the Parzifan tribe, beheld the star, and foretold that their destiny lay there, in the far East. So, journeying onwards, the Parzifans finally reached the Golden Sea. There, a swan lead them to the shores of a great land, populated only by primitive people. There was the realm of Arandor established.

1 TIMELINE
