Before Amsirians plagued the land, the continent of Skelbakh was dominated by Aireys. Legend says that Skelbakh was once a green land with lush vegetation spread from coast to coast. It was a place of magick and wonder, where children of the land and the sea lived in peace and harmony. Children of the sea might have referred to Aireys living along the coastline.
Neighbouring continent, Migdan, was home to Valas and Derons, two related species in constant war. The two had a common ancestor: The Amsir. According to historical texts, Amsirs started to divide into two species, when Talon Deron collected his followers and renounced the Amsirian religion around 3000 BCE. Talon’s supporters started to use his surname and lately it became the name of a whole new Amsirian race: Derons. Derons started to differ from the rest of the Amsirs, who now called themselves Valas. Derons had darker grey skin and black hair was increasingly commong amongst them. Valas believe that abandoning of the gods resulted in Deron’s grey skin and the black hair is a mark of Siaal, the manifestation of evil.
Aroun 100 BCE, Migdan’s wildlife was suffering as a result of Amsirian overpopulation. At some point, Valan expedition set sail, found Skelbakh and claimed it as their new home.
1st Era started as valas came ashore and introduced the counting of time. They built a new chronology system that suited the local environment better. Soon after Valas arrived, first members of the House Deron started to inhabit Skelbakh’s shores and other derons soon followed .
It seems that the first centuries were more or less peacefull between Amsirians and the native Aireys. At least there are no evidence of conflicts from the time. Valas and Derons quickly started to establish their own cities and cultures. Derons showed great interest in Aireys and their magick, Valas thought it to be Siaal’s work. Valas noticed the fertile lands of Skelbakh and started to import crop from Migdan. New fruits and grains flourished in Skelbakh’s warm environment. Soon, the first Valan empire was born: The city state of Aerialis. It was ruled by House Angal, one of the minor houses in Migdan. House Deron found their own nation and named it after themselves: Deronia.
Thousand years after The Amsir first stepped on Skelbakh grounds, a civil war raged amongst The Amsir due to disagreements between ruling houses of Deron and Angal. The matron of house Angal, Adalia Angal had plotted to kill Talon Deron, the head of house Deron, and tried to usurp the full power over The Amsir Empire.
Civil war ended at The Battle of Daysir: Troups of Talon Deron and Adalia Angal battled for two days. Finally, an arrow killed Adalia and Talon triumphed. Supporters of Adalia were driven away and Talon started to rebuild a new empire. He renounced his faith and declared The Amsirs religion illegal. He also renounced his surname and gave it to be the name of his new empire.
Many didn’t agree with Talon and left to join the Angal supported and continued to respect the old ways. They also built a new empire and started to call themselves Valas.
Talons and Valas were starting to part into their own races and hatred between them had only grown since the civil war.
Derons had stretched their empire to the coast and had started to build their third city into the stone. During excavations they found a rare crystal that would later be known as Nidarium.
Deronian scientists soon discovered that Nidarium radiated energy that could be harnessed similarily to Aireys’ magick.
In the year 4556, Valan city states joined forces and started a war against derons in attempt to steal their Nidarium.
Valan general Caillan Liendan led the troops to the gates of Nebneiris and besieged the city for several months.
Silvyn Adera ruled from 4556 to 4562.
Finally, after four years of war, Valas and Derons made peace contract in 4566. Valas wouldn’t pursue Nidarium, but Derons had to give Valas some of their technology.
Ovanda was ruled by the house of Kadima. In 4568, Ovanda’s king and queen were Danum and Faerai Kadema. They had three daughters: Aulaigh, Sorai and Fayla.
In late 4568, the royal family were assassinated by Angorwat assassins, hired by Avose Angall III. Youngest princess Sorai was able to escape and went missing soon after the assassination. Avose III wanted to revenge his father and planned on destroying Ovanda permanently. After assassination of the royal family, Ovanda fell into chaos and Avose III marched his troops to Ovanda, besieging the city. Ovanda wasn’t prepared for a siege or battle and soon citisens started to starve. Avose III sieged the city for two years, until every one of Ovandan’s were dead. To make sure of it, Avose set the city on fire and left it to burn to the ground.
Legend says that Ovanda’s ruins burned for a year and 1 day.
But then all of the Aireys’ Monabs gathered to the sacred grove and casted a powerfull curse on Derons. At first, the curse went unnoticed, but in a few days, Feron soldiers started dropping to the ground in agony. Screams of pain filled the battleground, as Derons died a horrible and agonizing death.
Derons had no choice, but to accept. Only then, Aireys lifted the curse and Deron survivor were left to survive without slaves being the backbone of Deronian Empire.
