The current calander and age was set down 1512 years ago with the event known as the Ascension. A great gold dragon named Sornaloramian brokered an end to the continual wars between the races, ending the Time of Struggles. To maintain the peace, he revealed the existence of a secluded island, thought to be in the center of the Sea of Baas, accessible by magical gates located in each of the capitals. Each race was able to send a representative to meet with Sornaloramian, who exerted peaceful authority from his secluded throne. His reasons are unknown to anyone but himself, but his presence has served to prevent large scale warfare between the various races.

Prior to the Ascension, the elves, dwarves, and humans have recorded history, but it is neither complete nor well known. The humans have only sparse writings, none dating back any more than approximately 400 or so years pre Ascension, only a few hinting at a time of peace. The dwarves have some codified religious texts, much of which blurs the line between myth and fact. The Imperial Library of Del’cortath has records almost 3000 years old, hinting at a great set of civilizations existing prior to the ones Gynamede currently knows. The theoretical fall of this civilization, and the period for approximately 350 years after, is recorded as the Dark Fall. The elves theorize that Sornaloramian’s gates date back from this prior civilization. However, why and how they fell is a mystery to all.

Declaring all gods to be considered equals, the Brotherhood heals without distinction or discrimination. They maintain strictly neutral, and are greatly prized as moderators by royalty. Divine scholars note that although they worship no direct God, Brothers are still able to cast divine magic, further weakening the old traditions of single god supremacy.

622: The Scism is ended by the Mordainian Peace Accords. King Mordain IX brokers the deal, declaring freedom of religion for any church willing to keep the King’s peace and obey civil law. Generally seen as the end of the Age of Theocracy, churches without number flock to Mordainia.
