The Age of Humanity was the period from about −3000 to 1358 DR.[1]

DescriptionEdit

This period began with the decline of the elven and dwarven empires and the flourishing and expansion of the human empires. These new, expanding empires included Calimshan, Imaskar, Jhaamdath, Mezro, Mulhorand, Netheril, Narfell, Raumathar, and Unther.[2]

Of these human empires, that of Netheril represented the genesis of this epoch. Thanks to the discovery of the nether scrolls, they were launched into history.[3] Around −3000 DR, the Archmage Ioulaum raised the first enclave of Netheril, Xinlenal, through his newly fashioned mythallar.[4] However, all of these human empires left their indellible mark on the Realms, and the influence of their actions was felt for centuries afterward, as three of these nations - Calimshan, Mulhorand, and Unther - survived past this era, albeit in forms much different than seen in this epoch.

NotesEdit

  1. Horus-Re, at this time, was actually only Horus, as his father, Re, had not passed and therefore had not bequeathed his portfolio or powers to Horus yet. Horus-Re, however, is Horus for all intents and purposes of this article.
  2. Enlil and Re were god-kings; they were the physical rulers, as well as the deities, of their respective realms.
  3. The exact details of this event are somewhat obscure, but the loss of the remaining scrolls at this time is considered indisputable.
