Well, this post could be interesting. I don’t usually go real deep into the history of my countries. Aside from the one world in which most of the history is told in the series, so… Yeah.
And now we start our history lesson. *takes a deep breath* Here we go.
Backstory first… Yep, backstory to backstory. This is already such a clear, concise post. Oh dear. Well, Themar is in a star system I created quite a while ago called the Alleruus System. In it are the majority of the rest of my story worlds. So, yeah. Backstory of backstory is now done. Now we get to the actual backstory. (I apologize for my rambling. Tired brains are not the best for clear writing. Please bear with me.)
In 4,000 BE (Before Execution), the Alleruus Star System was created. That comes with a whole bundle of planets, countries, peoples, etc. At this point, only the Morressir and the Dwarves lived on Themar. On other planets were humans, Elves, other Dwarves, etc.
For four thousand years the Morressir live in peace with each other, even though they’re probably at war with the Dwarves for a great majority of that time. I just don’t see the Morressir and the Dwarves getting along. They’re so entirely different that I can’t imagine they’d even try to find one thing in common. (I’m making all of this up as I go, so you’ll get a small look at my thought processes and whatnot. We’re learning this all together. :))
Then in about… 10 AE? The Elves from Titania (a rinky-dink, nearly forgotten world of mine) discover that they can create ships that can travel through air and space (because apparently their scientific advances are a lot faster than ours). They call them, creatively, airships. *gasp* So creative, right?! Yep, definitely tired brain. And I’m going off-topic yet again. I apologize. Anyway, these Elves decide to do some exploring and find Themar. They take a liking to it, and to Roenor and Adrelia in particular, they name them (apparently Hurg and Kira weren’t satisfactory, they had to rename them Elvishly. Elvishly? Yep, that’s a word now. Okay.
Anyway, they had some wars with the Morressir and Dwarves, of course, since they didn’t want to give up their land (who does?), but they eventually defeated the Dwarves and came to an agreement with the Morressir, because the Morressir are actually a very peaceful culture. They can be very stubborn, but they’re peaceful. So they were happy to make an agreement with the Elves. I’m repeating myself and being redundant. And I did it again. Oh well.
There was tension between the Elves and Dwarves for several hundred more years (until about 712 AE), during which some humans from Titania decided they wanted to move to Themar, as well. More conflict! That’s always fun. Anyway, they shoved the Elves out of the way, which meant tensions between their two races, as well. So at this point, the Elves like neither the humans nor the Dwarves, the Dwarves don’t like the Elves or the Morressir, and the Morressir pretty much try to avoid everyone. And humans honestly don’t really care, as a group.
So several hundred years later, in about 1420 AE, people are finally (mostly) at peace, and everyone’s (usually) happy. Hooray! Cheers all around!
And I’m thinking that the story that spawned in my brain will take place in approximately… 1994 AE? That’ll work.
Anyway, this is obviously a very loose history of the planet Themar, and I may or may not dig deeper later. I apologize for my rambly weirdness and invention of new words (actually, I’m not sorry for creating new words. Creating new words is awesome.) Thank you for sticking with me to the end despite my tired brain. Hopefully some small fraction of it actually made sense and you were able to learn something from it or at least enjoy it.
