This page is to describe history that occurred in the Silver Lands, the region east of what is on the main map.

Best map as of 2011-10-23. Relevant part is everything to the south-east of Lin-Elens.


  • Elves inhabit Lin-Elens.
  • Minotaurs live on the plains around the minotaur lake.
  • Dwarves live in the mountains around Firecloud Peak. They are prohibited by treaty with the elves from claiming the hills south of the great river.
  • The Eltireans live in floating isles hidden above the eastern side of the Flamebreath Desert.
  • Saurians live in the Ssyuriss Fenn.

20 BW - 200 YW: Drakes and Dwarves

20 BW

  • Dwarves from Firecloud Peak cross the Great River and colonize the hills of Triththa.

181 YW

  • The Silver Drakes attack Firecloud peak and the surrounding area, drafting most of the saurians from Ssyuriss Fenn into their ranks.
  • The dwarvish defenses crumble under the combined offensive. When it becomes clear that the war is lost, the survivors evacuate to Triththa.
  • The saurians suffer the brunt of the casualties in the war. The remainder are enslaved by the drakes.

182 YW

  • The saurians remaining in Ssyuriss Fenn are soundly defeated by a Triththan offensive. The remnants of their civilization are a number of disorganised tribes.
