Time of Ash
Approximately 500 years ago, the world awoke and the dust settled all around. Civilization had been reduced to this dust, to ash. All history, recorded mentally or physically, was gone. Bereft of the order Althura had known, the land fell into darkness. The war following the Time of Ash is sometimes referred to as the Earning war. The darkness which surrounds this time has led to the topic of the past being taboo and artifacts from the Time Before are either prized by those such as the Lost or reviled, as by most.
