Cimmerian Timeline Part 4

1070BCE: Human raids into Eastern Cimmeria discovered that the Orcs now staunchly defended the Goblins.

1068BCE: The Conclave declared war against the Orcs and their new Goblin allies. Halfling slingers and Humans riding chariots brought the Conclave victory in set-piece battles. The Conclave sold prisoners of war into slavery, both Goblin and Orc alike.

Hades marched upon Colchis once more. Aeëtes fought the undead off with a combined army of trained soldiers and Goblin slaves used as shock troops.

1065BCE: The Human attacks pushed the Orcs and Goblins further east. Meanwhile, the Goblins integrated into the Orc tribes and switched from their old pantheon to worshiping the Olympians alongside the Orcs.

1050BCE: Time passed and the borders between the Conclave, the Orcs, and the independent Goblins stabilized. One hundred years of war resulted in the defeat of the Goblin gods and their absorption through syncretism into the Hellenic pantheon. The Olympians began to entertain themselves with their new sandbox full of people.

1049BCE: The Olympians longed for the exciting times prior to the Trojan war. What was so great about the Heroic Age? Monsters! The Olympians dredged up all sorts of monsters from Tartarus. Trolls, sea serpents, krakens, giants, chimeras, basilisks, beholders, lycanthropes, dinosaurs, and even dragons! All of these beasts and more were set upon the mortals of Cimmeria.

1047BCE: The new dragons of Cimmeria found the spartoi soldiers that sprouted from their planted teeth severely weakened in form but extremely loyal to the dragons themselves. These new soldiers were dubbed Kobolds.

1046BCE: A red dragon named Kenderax attacked Fangaroot along with thousands of Kobold soldiers. Kenderax incinerated Karnafaust in the initial attack, preventing any organized defense against the draconic invasion. Without leadership the Dwarven citizens fled south.

1045BCE: The new sea monsters in the Caspian all but ended the fishing industry. Certain death awaited any ship that goes more than a few dozen feet from shore.

1044BCE: Orc culture always promoted physical combat as a rite of passage for the young. After the end of the Goblin War young Orcs had started fighting each other to prove their worth. The elders of the tribes saw the self-destructive path this would lead the Orc race down. They directed the violent energy of the Orc youth outwards instead of inwards, specifically towards the Shacklack Desert. Many Orcs traveled into the Shacklack to slay the myriad of monsters there.
