THE DAYS OF THONORIA
Thonoria's past was both colorful and violent, seeing endless cylces of settlement by various peoples, invasions, spread of vast cultures and then destruction at the hands of the next invaders. Much of Thonoria's history is, thus, a mottled patchwork of small nations, city-states and entire cultures battling for supremacy and conquered lands. It was only with the Sasserine invasion, 1700 years ago, that modern Thonorian history began. The Sasserine, a race of sturdy human stock, sailed in from distant lands and began not only conquering existing countries within Thonoria, but the Sasserine also began recording their history.
Sasserine blood still runs through the veins of many humans living in
Thonoria to this very day, the Sasserine themselves have been assimilated
accross all borders and nations and no longer rule any lands as a single
people. Scholars, however, mark the beginning of the modern era with the
ascention of the Dulkan's. In particular, Espirath Con Dulkan I, first
emporer of Thonoria who was the first ruler to unite the entire continent
under one rule. The Dulkan's have ruled Thonoria successfully for the
past 600 years. The only exception would be the secession of Iguanna Shores
in FY 247. The contentious city-state on the western shores of Thonoria
has remained an independent entity for past 350 years with the Empire
mysteriously allowing the city to remain independent, if not isolated.
