A Timeline of the SC

An Eusdrian tavern-dweller’s timeline of events of the Savage Coast

Several thousand years ago- The Oltecs were the first humans in this part of the world; the Tortles have seemingly always been here, ’cuz the Oltecs found ’em already working their little homesteads, living off the land the same way they do today. Some things never change…

A few thousand years ago-- The first time a human ever beat an elf to anything; fleeing some kind of crisis in the South, elves migrate in huge tribes up into Brun, cross the Savage Coast, and make for Hule and the lands East. A few break off to live peacefully enough alongside the Oltecs. Maybe they saw something of themselves in their younger days (were Elves ever young?) and took to these farmers and copper workers. The elves in Eusdria, Bellayne and Renardy still talk about it like it’s something new.

Not long after that- So the Aranea, the “spider people”, that had been infesting the Eastern forests since before the Oltecs, get wiped out by the Herathi, the mages who put up all those towers. Only good thing they did, as far I’m concerned… I hate spiders…

A couple thousand years ago- Some elves and minotaurs with wings set up a kingdom in…. No seriously, this Ranchero Texeiran… No I’ve never met him, but he said that the Wallaran guide who… Yah, they’re called “chameleon men”, but that’s not important… No, I never actually saw the guide, it was the Ranchero who told me… Oh, never mind, moving on…

A thousand (or so) years ago - Either the Oltecs changed things up a bit and got tired of stepped pyramids, the Wallarans or Tortles tried their hand at building (unlikely), or another whole society set up shop out West. The ruins of old depots and temples are here and there. A Northman said they have them in Hule too, and one buddy of mine, deserted the Thyatian Legion, said they have ‘em out East in a desert called Ylarum. Couldn’t all be the same people, they’d had to ‘ave been bigger than the Thonians. Well, these other pyramid builders, they drove those, whuzza Oltec word, the colotinacayotl, means “scorpion bodies”, out into the Orc’s Head Pennisula. Put all the monsters in one place, not a bad idea.
