The Age of Magic
The Age of Magic existed before any known calculation of time or recorded history. It was an age filled with adventure and excitement. The Age of Magic was a time when all manner of magical creatures existed: Elves, Dwarves, Gnomes, Halflings, Orcs, and even Dragons wandered the land and fought in glorious combat.
During the Age of Magic, humans began their rise to power. They were a new race and the magical races didn’t fear them. But, humans were quick to learn and adapt. They quickly learned the skills of magic, but through their inginuity, they developed technology and mechanical skills. They were also quick to breed and spread like rabbits throughout the world. Humans were not easily conquored, nor would they submit to the other races of the world. Thus, they gained enormous control and influence. They purged those races which would not live in harmony with each other from the face of Terra. Many races simply left the world to the humans, deciding that it was no longer in their power to influence the shaping of Terra.
