All history is the record of man's single failure to thwart his destiny - the record, in other words, of the few men of destiny who, through recognition of their symbolic role, made history.
Khoras has a turbulent and bloody history marred by war for most of recorded time. It is a world that has seen great magicks, terrible tragedies, long wars and new beginnings that have occurred at an unprecedented pace.
The most significant event in Khorasian history is the cataclysmic disaster known as the Sundering. (See below). This event serves as a focal point for history. Scholars divide history up into two major eras : Pre-Sundering and Post-Sundering. Historical events preceding the Sundering are marked by year on the Thullian Imperial Calendar. Those following are marked on the Common Calendar. Each era is divided up into a number of "Ages" which are defined in length by the significant events which mark its beginning and ending. Each age is further divided up into "Periods" which highlight specific groups of related events.
