This post is all about the initial backlash the Dwarves suffer for the curse they laid upon the Bwarlor. The initial descriptions went into a lot of detail about the new subrace of Dwarves born from Human parents. I’ve removed as much as I could while attempting to preserve the core of the new culture within the timeline. Also, there’s some not nice words in this post, just to warn you.
I plan to write more about each race and subrace in the future. The information on the culture of the Bwaloran Dwarves will be moved out of the timeline and into that section.
346 NA: For many years Dwarf-sons were slaughtered by the Bwarlor, their deaths meant to purge the wombs of Bwarloran women. As the years passed the killings slowed and the Dwarf-sons found a place within Bwarloran society. A horrifying existence, forever a second class, beaten and abused by their own parents. Hatred grew in the hearts of these Dwarves, not for their abusers but for those who cursed them. Guided by the passion of the Humans and tempered by towering hatred for Dwarvenkind, the Bwarloran Dwarves formed an order, the Bastards of the Tattered Book.
The guiding mantra of the Bastards of the Tattered Book is, “We are bastards left on another’s door step.” Abandoned by the Metal Dwarves that cursed them they now intend to destroy the Metal Dwarves, tear up the Books of Prophecy, and become the true DWARF. They are the servant rebelling against their master, creation destroying their creators, sons killing their cruel fathers. They are the Bastards of the Tattered Book, and dammit, they mean business.
349 NA: The Merfolk took notice of the curse now that the first Bwarloran Dwarves had reached adulthood. The Merfolk offered to help ship the Dwarves born to the Humans to the Dwarven kingdom. The Bastards quickly rejected the notion that they wished to be reunited with their “original families.” The Merfolk seers, still unsatisfied, looked to Drolfo for guidance as to why this terrible curse had befallen the Bwarlor lands. Drolfo answered, “A curse from the Dwarves. You must attack the dwarves for there will be no peace with them.” The Merfolk began marshalling their armies.
352 NA: The race of Rana rose from the waters of Tonsil Lake. Some say that they are descended from the stars, riding gossamer strands of heavenly beauty. Amphibious and humanoid, they seem to radiate goodness. They settled in the Tonsil and frolicked, peaceful and happy, little aware of the chaos of the world.
360 NA: After many skirmishes the Landers took Cynelle. The Merfolk returned control of the city to the Najar. The Merfolk learned from this experience and gained advanced knowledge of how to fight inside cities.
366 NA: The Grez froze the Northern Sea to make one solid line of ice.
371 NA: The wraith people built a city in the middle of the New Ice, Ksilardyh.
