In order to assist players old and new on Lisianthus' history, I've created this topic thread. As more and more of "The Historie" is created or learned, it will be handy to update this timeline accordingly. At this time, anything of significance can be added, but it may be best to avoid adding 'minor inclusions' (such as 'so and so moved here', or 'we traded with the natives at this time'). "Major" events such as births, deaths, major battles, celebrations, outbreaks, etc. could be included here. If you don't have edit rights to this post, just attach a reply, and I or one of the admins will add it accordingly. Let's see what history we can make!

THE PAST TIME (Civilization & Dominions)
- ~50,000 years ago - The "Great Rock" crashed into The Planet. The "Divine Guardians" imbued the world with vast elements and created a vast ecosystem of lifeforms. Soon after, they would give birth to their descendants, the "Fae" or "Fairies" who became the "Messengers of the Divine". It is unsure if Lisianthus is where life began or not. Regardless, the various lifeforms develop in various places across The Planet, not necessarily just on Lisianthus. They Fae gradually settle in what is now called "Tir Ildathach".
- ~5000 years ago - The Elves arrive in Lisianthus. They name the land "Annwn". Later on, Silverwind calls the area "Taur-i-Melegryn", after they frequently hear about the Great Trees that make up the land.
- ~2000 years ago - The Merfolk, who have roamed the vast oceans for centuries, begin to settle more near Lisianthus.
- ~1200 years ago - Tieflings and other nefarious creatures arrive and settle in what is now "Blackmoor".
- ~1000 years ago - The Drow arrive, and settle in a region they call "Vhaerun".
- ~800 years ago - A clan of Humans arrive and settle along the eastern coast of Lisianthus, establishing "Port Annwn"; named after the Elves in respect.
- ~700 years ago - The Elves, Drow, and Hellspawns (Tieflings, etc.) are drawn into a "Great War" which happens near the current location of the City of Silverwind. Thousands of lives are lost in the conflict and the Elven city here is never rebuilt. The "cursed" land remains scorched and barren for at least 200 more years before life starts to slowly return, but the land is never resettled because it is deemed 'cursed'. The Blackmoor and Vhaerun forces retreat from the area, remaining where they are settled now.
- ~600 years ago - The Serpent & Lizard People arrive and make the region of "Nila Kanta" their home. Gradually the Lizard People expand into the eastern portion of Tigan'ra Desert.
- ~500 years ago - The Hobbits, Halflings, and Dwarves arrive (not at the same time). The Hobbits and Halfings settle in an area they call "Green Fields". The Dwarves settle in the Whitefrost Mountains and call their domain "Heimdall Donnar".
- ~300 years ago - Another group of humans arrive and settle on the northwest coast of Lisianthus, which they would later name "Silverwind". This is also the time when they give the Continent the name "Lisianthus".
- ~250 years ago - Various group of migrants settle in the western and central areas of Tigan'ra Desert, calling themselves "Gypsies". They consist of a variety of races, though mostly are human.
- ~225 years ago - The Plutocracy of Silverwind is established as the City of Silverwind grows.
- ~200 years ago - The Dragons of Thaczil di Sjach Gherthaeli arrive and settle in the region that is now named after them.
