Previous: Cimmerian Timeline Part 55
Loose ends for coming to the end of the timeline!
1115BCE: The Olympians recognized that the new toys they’d given their mortals were strong tools in the right hands and explosive mistakes in the wrong hands. To ensure the magical artifacts weren’t misused, Zeus created the Museum of Power in Nox. To guard the building, Poseidon set powerful enchantments around it and Hades brought Argus back from the dead to defend it.
742BCE: Enough vampires had arisen in Cimmeria to form a community centered in Crux. They pooled their resources to acquire blood to drink. They offered gold in exchange for blood. This collection of gold and blood grew into the Bank of Lamentation, one of the most securely guarded locations in Cimmeria.
647BCE: The blue dragons of Shacklack took advantage of the sand giant genocide to attack fire giant tribes in the desert. Without their sand giant allies, the fire giants had weaknesses in their defensive network. Many fire giants were wiped out, relocated, or swore fealty to the blue dragons.
646BCE: Chirrigar the fire giant’s tribe was wiped out. Without a home he wandered through the desert and came upon an abandoned scepter. He grasped the rod and felt tremendous power flow into him. He went to the cave of the dragon that had slain his tribe and killed it in return. Chirrigar claimed the dragon’s hoard for himself and then left Shacklack Desert to avoid retribution.
645BCE: Chirrigar spread the dragon’s wealth across Eastern Cimmeria. He told stories of a new city he was founding east of the Aral Sea.
644BCE: Chirrigar went east of the Aral Sea and planted a large piece of quartz he had found his dragon treasure hoard. The quartz grew into the stunning ice city of Dorrowsan.
520BCE: The old lich of Crux, Vectra, developed a new spell of unimaginable destruction. The magic was capable of wiping out all life within a three mile radius of the casting. Vectra demonstrated the spell and then opened negotiations with various governments to sell it. She sold copies of the devastation spell to Xoria, Persia, Ethiopia, and some of the Indian kingdoms.
