The Cataclysm

Year 0 of the 5th Era

The Shattering of a Continent

“…there was a scream that became silent. This is the day that people will never forget.” – unknown historian

The event known as the Cataclysm has little surviving information found outside of the elven fortresses.

What is known is that a massive battle was fought in the southern metropolis of the western continent that was the heart of a great alliance of races. Just when victory seemed inevitable, a massive explosion emerged that proceeded to shatter the entire southern portion of the currently deserted continent.

This signaled the start of a new era, as each race blamed the others for the outcome.
