is a brief timeline of the history of Numeria. Not all events are
included here; only the most relevant to the campaign we are running.
A massive spaceship crashes on the
lands of Numeria, splitting into several pieces. This event is
known as the Rain of Stars . The human Kellid tribes begin
exploring the ruins, slowly and carefully. Numerous dangers and
impassable barriers make this endeavor difficult.
A Kellid barbarian chieftain
explores one of the fallen ruins and triggers an explosion that
wipes out his tribe, setting the taboo against the exploration and
use of technology.
Kellid tribes begin to
systematically bury smaller technological ruins and artifacts
(which were partially buried from the crash). The biggest fragment
of the crashed starship, known as the Silver Mount, cannot be
buried totally and is instead guarded so that no one can enter.
The mad "Machine Mage"
Karamoss develops his theory that all organic life was inferior to
mechanical life and started ten years of preparation for a secret
expedition into Numeria's Silver Mount (the biggest fragment of
the crashed starship).
Karamoss enters Silver Mount under
a cloak of utmost secrecy.
Karamoss emerges from Silver Mount
transformed into a cyborg and turns his attentions far to the
south toward the city of Absalom (outside Numeria).
Karamoss creates the Red Redoubt
siege machine and begins his siege of Absalom.
Gojan the Sharp, one of the first
Pathfinders, travels to Numeria to make a name for himself, hoping
to explore Silver Mount. He contacts Black Sovereign Ontar,
seeking permission to explore the forbidden location.
After a decade, Gojan finally
earns Ontar's blessing to enter the forbidden lands in his realm
and explore Silver Mount.
Gojan returns to Absalom with his
findings from Numeria; a narrative detailing his journey and
research is published later that year in the third volume of the

Numeria is increasingly flooded with crusaders passing through on
their way to the battlefront.

for himself, kills her and takes charge of the Technic League.
The Technic League first manages
to enter Silver Mount; explorations into the ruins continue to the
current day. The Technic League faces numerous dangers, obstacles,
and in-fighting. Still, it controls almost all the technology of
Numeria and who can access it. The taboo against technology is
Changing weather patterns in the

technology. The Mountain Crow kellid tribe does its best to hide
this discovery from the Technic League.
Technic League mage Alling
Tresorant learns of the Crowhollow sinkhole and travels to it to
investigate. The mage never reports back, instead taking up
residence within the ruin. Within 5 years he and the entire
Mountain Crow tribe vanish. Crowhollow is declared a haunted ruin
by the remaining tribes.
