Previous: Gurutama Timeline Revising Part 18
Most people in Gurutama fear the grez, but one group doesn’t, the Empire Dwarves who still believe in their original mission to destroy Navillus, no matter how corrupted that mission became.
We also see the splitting of the elves into two groups, those who stay behind in Halusho and those who build a new home in the Eastern Maw. This move also coincides with the start of Hykma’s rise to power as the commercial center of the world. Hykma will remain on top by the end despite facing many challenges. Hykma hasn’t been mentioned in the Timeline since 245 NA when the city was founded (Part 9), but it’ll be showing up a lot more from now on.
620 NA: While the rest of the world feared the grez, the Syluki Dwarves reveled in the destruction of the Demon’s city after so many crusades. The Great Alliance, created so long ago, finally paid off. Not caring that the Hero died in the carnage, the Syluki Dwarf nobility sent a congratulatory embassy to the grez. The grez thanked the dwarves and said they were happy to do their part to remove the Navillus threat.
622 NA: The Syluki Dwarves began to gather their forces once again. They planned to retake the Najaran cities, crush the Bwarlor, and punish the merfolk for their betrayal. Secretly the Brotherhood was in control and a new crusade would begin.
625 NA: The Farpoint Dwarves officially split off from the Syluki Dwarves. They no longer wished war with their Human neighbors. The Dwarves of Syluk vow to subjugate the Farpoint Dwarves as well.
630 NA: The mighty Najaran Empire faded into ashes and the cities gave up their last false pretenses of supposed unity. Cynelle, the youngest daughter of Old Najar, was the first to proclaim herself a free city. Emissaries were sent to the nations of the world, suing for peace and offering prosperous trade agreements
637 NA: The elves enacted their long thought out plan. The Homestone Bridge was built at great expense over the Great Canal. All but the most stubborn elves waved their corrupted forest home goodbye. They traveled into the east and set up a new city in the Lower Maw called Rotandean. The elves struck up a positive relationship with their new neighbors, the Hykmans and the rana. The Bridge of the sylvan folk was covered by a great ward. Only non-hobgoblins may pass across the Homestone Bridge.
638 NA: The hobgoblins continued their barbarity after the majority of the elves left Halusho.
