189 - Humans gift the narrow pass leading to N’Forore to the Mountanise, who erect the great city Nalingad to defend the area from Assa’s advancing hordes. The Eldar also retreat from the region, moving northward to Thrallenfall and westward to Q'Restwood.

She defeats the all-powerful Enlightened with one punch, and with another wipes out Kendrala’s entire horde of monsters.

430 - Jason Brewlor, brother of Maria, is outraged at his sister’s disappearance and shuts down the trade routes with the Paramour. Without the life-blood provided by the Humans, the Paramour rise up against Juo Monsune and execute him as a traitor, sending the head to Jason as an attempt of an apology. The Humans do not respond.
434 - Jason Brewlor meets with Bitifu, the current Queen of the Naginis, offering the trade they were sending toward the Paramour and securing a new Alliance between the two races.

487 - Chicharoi scouts are spotted by a Mountanise General, though they flee back to Maustard almost instantly.

515 - Tall Rose of the Orcansheen marries Marrok Brumbahill – the current King of M’laen, in attempt to secure Mountanise/Orcansheen relations.
517 - Yet another Mountanise Civil war breaks out, this time apparently over the King’s marriage, but is clearly just another family trying to gain power. Marrok is killed during the fighting, leaving Tall Rose a prisoner under the Mountain. This gets the attentions of the Orcansheen horde in the Razor Hils, but the Mountanise are quick to release her, to avoid another force attacking while they were busy fighting each other.
536 - Mountanise nobleman Kazim P’arm employs powerful Paramour and Orcansheen mercenaries to tilt the civil war in his favour. His countrymen aren’t pleased by this move, but Kazim wins the throne and simply executes anyone who speaks out against his new bodyguards.

700 - A team led by Gregor the Iron Blacksmith, heir to the throne of Ther’Laen, heads back to his home with a massive force of twenty thousand men and women – to invade and settle their ancestral home. They are successful, driving out the meagre resistance from Assa’s Harpies.
716 - The Mountanise reclaim and settle the north of Ther’Laen, though Malst still remains out of their reach.
717 - Gregor makes a deal with the Harpy’s queen Assa Racluquiur, allowing the two races to live as neighbours – supplying and aiding each other.
722 - Campaigns
against New Nalingad ultimately fail, as the Eldar cannot break through the
newer defences – and so decide to completely bypass the castle, crossing the
sea to Dud’Laen, attempting to settle the
area. The first city they build (on the backs of the Trovsken) is Istlafall.
786 - Humans and Orcansheen arriving in the west of Algen (greeted by Naga troops) are set upon by a tired, yet functional Eldar force, who are attempting to block this Alliance from entering N’Forore.
788 - The Eldar force manage to push the alliance back to Peri So, but are unable to siege the castle due to lack of equipment and woman-power.
802 - Tribes under the Orcansheen King Vile the Giant Fellow start to spread all over Southern M’Laen.
850 - Lowest Uprising. A local rebellion in Hui starts, and as Queen Georgia Brewlor tries to put a stop to it she is captured and killed – with rebels taking over the entire island. To add to this, they have gained support from the Eldar.
852 - Norman Brewlor – despite being only a child – is the oldest Brewlor still alive, and thus made king. Unable to really quell the threat himself, the Paramour seize the chance to renew their old friendship with the humans, sending the three heroes Matthias Hillito, Saiato Morn, and Kevia Neverto to take the island back in the name of the young human king. The people are impressed by the colourful trio – and in no time Lowest is under the control of the Brewlors once again. The King’s court greatly accepts their renewed offer of friendship.
879 - The trade routes to Paramour City are finally reopened, with the Wren-Ravens and the Cross Boar warrior clans tasked with patrolling the area.
884 - The new Dragon Lord Nesting Grounds was settled in the north of Falcon’s Reach. When the children are strong enough to fly, they take to skies to join the rest of the Dragon Lord community at Jilthorn Ilse.
903 - A group of explorers discover the ancient ruins of Past-Foot Hill – however before they can uncover it’s secrets, nothing else is heard from them – until all eight turn up Danford some months later, having no knowledge of how they arrived nor what happened to them, the only clue being an old book whose pages remain blank – though the explorer holding it never lets it out of his sight nor allows anyone to examine it.
950 - Desmond of Souls finds Kendrala’s cell open; it seems that she is at large again. Desmond and two other Enlightened begin to search the world for signs of their former friend.
977 - The Enlightened turn to Assa Racluquiur, but find it is a trap – as one of Desmond’s team betrays him. Desmond and Enlightened Enforcer Phillip face off against Kendrala, Assa, and Enlightened Scholar Hector.
- Victorious, Kendrala makes Desmond her prisoner, and sets her sights on conquering the world once again. This time, Kendrala moves to Falcon’s Reach – the lack of settlements means her army of monsters is able to build up in no time – mainly because Assa, tired of war, has decided to only support Kendrala and not actively be by her side.
Third Millennium under Overseer Julina
1 - At the turn of the century, with an army of over a million, trained and battle-hungry monsters – this time with armours and weapons – Kendrala finally sets her plan in motion. Her monsters spread out almost like a wave, descending on the lands – with no army assembled to resist.
- Battle of Enorland. Also known as the Battle of Light and Fire, Kendrala leads the way to Enor, planning on using it as the new capital of the world. However, the warrior Serra Morgann appears again – and fights against Kendrala’s horde singlehandedly. This time, there are too many for a single punch victory, but Kendrala is forced to watch in horror as her fighters fail to land a single blow on the woman. It is said that the lights of the Soul Energy at play can be seen as far as Crow’s Landing. Kendrala – probably pretty well aware at what the outcome would be – flees. Having destroyed about ninety-nine-per-cent of the army, Serra is content to leave.
- The other Races of Zenith Earth collectively decide not to enter Falcon’s Reach and Ni’Coast anymore (Save for Paramour city), giving them the unofficial name of the Lost Northlands.

55 - Attacks from the Orcansheen in the south further divide the Mountanise forces – leaving their forces in Q’Restwood without supplies or relief. They manage to hold out for three more months before they are overrun by Eldar forces.
72 - With the Mountanise Weakness continuing – the ruling families engaged in another Civil war, The Harpies spread to Nalingad (western) and Narlingoft.
73 - In a surprise move, The Naga also appear in the M’Laen, having crossed the sea in boats – which is not something people expected of them. They land in Arlingoft in the summer.
76 - The Naga manage to find their way into the underground cities of the Mountanise – fierce fighting breaks out in the underground halls.

130 - Mountanise General Malhad Bearkiller, from Ther’Laen receives word from a Mountanise runner from M’Laen, as no word had been heard from their cousins had been heard for some time. Outraged, he turns to the king Fored Fore and they set about marshalling an army.
144 - Malhad Bearkiller arrives on the western coast of Maustard. Instead of attacking the Orcansheen, he makes a deal with King Ogbog to give him the aid of the Mountanise against their Harpy foes, in exchange for the Orcansheen helping him to get to the Mountains.
156 - Battle of Everseen Hill. Ogbog and Malhad Bearkiller engage the Naga at Everseen Hill. While the Naginis force has a fortified position, Malhad’s siege weaponry from Ther’Laen – combined with the aid of the Tari warrior clan from Revent (whose services Malhad had purchased in the weeks before the battle) lead to a victory. The only Naginis base in M’Laen is the underground city under Arlingoft – though Malhad leaves that obstacle be.
160 - The Harpies leave M’Laen.
178 - The Mountanise stabilises their power in M’Laen once more – though the Naginis keep a presence in the West, ALL of Southern M’Laen is gifted to the Orcansheen, and three quarters of all the riches in M’Laen is taken by Melhad and the Ther’Laen Mountanise, who return home.
