Previous: Cimmerian Timeline Part 40
This post will detail the history of Yuettencal and the events leading to the founding of the Aractrashan Kingdom.
600BCE: The expanding civilization in Zeus’s Canvas drove the uncivilized races of Eastern Cimmeria south towards the Aractrash Jungle. Raiding problems rose for the communities located in and around Aractrash.
598BCE: Persephone entered premature labor while walking through the Aractrash Jungle. The son of Hades and Persephone was born on the surface world, out of Hades’s household. Without his father’s roof over his head, the boy was only partially divine. Persephone named the boy Darnard, but she was unable to stay with him or bring him with her. Instead, she gave Darnard to a half-elf sorcerer named Khygantha to raise.
581BCE: Darnard grew into a strong man with fists like metal. He learned a bit of magic from Khygantha, with a particular focus on necromancy due to his father’s heritage. Knowing that the Aractrash Jungle swarmed with evil kobolds, gnolls, ogres, and trolls, Darnard begged Khygantha to help him do something about it. The odd pair set out to protect the people of the jungle from the monsters lurking within the trees.
579BCE: Darnard and Khygantha fought off monster attacks in each of the three Aractrash cities of Lordodo, Satronwoork, and Tetalya. They instructed the people of each town in how to properly defend themselves in the future.
578BCE: Darnard and Khygantha confronted the most vile monster in all of Aractrash, the silver dragon Snisterflixt. The pair defeated the dragon’s ogre attendants and slew the dragon itself. Within the dragon’s cave they found an egg. Rather that smash the egg, Darnard chose to keep it and raise the dragon. Also within the dragon’s cave was a massive, untapped gold vein.
577BCE: Darnard and Khygantha founded a new community south of the dragon’s cave. The dragon egg hatched into a friendly silver dragon. Darnard named the beast, Kinderax. The gold mine at the cave provided boundless funding for Darnard and Khygantha’s city plans as immigrants swelled their community.
574BCE: Darnard and Khygantha finally realized their love for each other. They were married.
570BCE: Darnard and Khygantha’s growing city of Yuettencal was blessed by a son for its rulers. Khygantha gave birth to a son, Gollard.
