History of Ursa Overview
The Time of Monsters (100)
The first appearance of the monsters created by the evil servant was 100 years after Ursa had been brought into existance. It was the worst time of monsters ever recorded. The six races were unaware of the danger they faced and decided to attack them on their own.
The monsters brought the six races to their knees. Only after the races called out to the Creator for help, did hope arise through the nation. Out of each race came two heroes, a male one and a female one.
The heroes fought back the monsters to their spawning point on Svadfolis. There, one hero gave his life to ensure the safety of the races. The hero’s name was Joshua. From that first time of monsters, arose the six sisters who helped the population learn of and know the Creator.
The six sisters were the female heroes. Five of the six sisters married their male counterparts who were also heroes but the youngest sister stayed alone. The sixth sister was given a special relationship with the Creator and could speak openly with Him.
The separation of the six-race state (500-550)
After the time of monsters, the races began to doubt their neighbouring races. This was especially true for the changelings who appeared very similar to some of the monsters. This caused overt discrimination towards them. By 500, they left the island of Svadfolis and moved to the island of Traiton.
The griffins soon left as well. They made for the more mountainous regions of Traiton. The nekos were also fed up with their treatment and left for a different island. Instead of going to Traiton, they went to the more northern group of islands called Werstrom.
The division of the continent (1500-2000)
By year 1000, few people lived on Svadfolis. Changelings lived in the eastern most part of the continent while humans took up the rest.
A couple families of mages had made the torturous journey to the south-west part of the continent and lived close to the elves. The elves resided in the forests and were content to be left alone.
Since the humans feared the changelings, they made an agreement with them. They agreed to leave the easternmost side of the continent that was past the mountains to be the land of the changelings. Then the rest of the continent was under the control of the humans. The changeling’s country was called Stolor and the human’s country, Fadrye.
The Island drought (2100-2102)
For two long and hard years, the islands of Werstrom, Traiton and Svadfolis had a difficult drought. No one knows why there was a drought.
The drought was hard on the neko tribes and griffins. In fact, the griffins eventually left their islands and flew to the mountains in the continent because of the drought. There the griffins stay to this day.
Neko tribes stayed on the islands but the death toll rose until they lost count of the dead. No one in the neko tribes had not lost a couple close relatives.
The Massacre of Fadrye (2900)
While the human, mage and elves races’ numbers grew, the humans began to encroach on the south western part of the continent. Because the plains could not keep up with the needs of the many humans that lived there.
As a desperate attempt to save themselves from famine, humans marched upon the mages’ territory. The mages defeated the humans and beat them back past the mountans and into the plains. There, the mages slaughtered towns until their rage subsided.
The mages went back to their own home with a feeling of pride and accomplishment. The elves despised the mages for what they had done and there has been tension between the races ever since.
The Abandonment of Svadfolis (3000)
As time passed, the number of monsters living on Svadfolis grew. Though heroes would come and save the island from being totally overrun, people grew tired of burying their loved ones.
The few settlements left packed all that they had and left the island. Some moved to Fadrye but most went to live in Traiton and Werstrom for fear of another massacre.
The Plague (3500-3600)
The one hundred year plague or the plague was known as the worst pandemic the world had ever known. City leaders did not believe that there was a sickness in their cities and due to their neglegance, the plague spread all the more quickly.
People think that it had been a particularly potent acheri that had brought the sickness on to three children in the great market. There is no evidence for this claim but it still remains a mystery how it spread so quickly from one place to another.
The Great War (3900-4100)
After the plague, economy took a while to recover. In Fadrye, a system was put into place to divde the race by the colour of their skin. White humans were the lowest on the scale of importance. The darker the better was their motto.
The mages and elves did not agree with this. When the humans attempted to force the other races to do as they had done, the elves and mages revolted. The ensuing bloodbath lasted two centuries and was only stopped due to the time of monsters.
The Division of Fadrye (4100)
After the monsters had been defeated, only one hero remained standing. This hero was named Dasi Glayde. He lead some of the humans along with the elves and mages to victory against the great country of Fadrye. However, it was the only bloodless battle in history.
The queen of Fadrye gave them the land past the mountains to the west. The elves stayed in their forest that they had already inhabited. The mages wish to split the land with the humans at the great river so both could have access the waterways. Dasi Glayde refused and took all the waterways for the humans.
The mages of Iodro and the humans of Dasica still fight about the boarder to this day.
The Decree of Sorrows (4700)
At a council of the nations, it was decided that no nation should have any deity or religion. The differing of opinions had led to much bloodshed in their minds. Truth be told, it had been the tainted power that infiltrated the ranks of certain religons that had caused bloodshed.
Hence, the council agreed to make religion illegal. They also decreed that anyone practicing religion or anything that remotely looked to be part of a religious belief was to be put to death. This was called the Decree of Sorrows. The decree is in effect to this day.
