Ahem. One Miyeritar? http://elliquiy.com/forums/index.php?topic=169678.msg7970249#msg7970249
Argh, my bad. Added the numbers up.
If Shantel Othreier was destroyed in -10100, how is that a playable faction? (Sorry, fairly new to this setting) Actually, most seem to have been destroyed.
Most of these kingdoms were destroyed in one way or another during the Crown Wars and the aftermath, but we're starting at the beginning of the Crown Wars around -12000 DR
So there's the whole "maybe it goes some other way!" aspect if you want to be from one of the kingdoms that falls, is I think the idea.
Aye, it's absolutely correct that the things can
change. Only sure facts are events which preluded the game events and that Aryvandari attack Miyeritari in lightning flash raid to take it over because they failed take over the control via diplomacy. At least that's the place anyway. Miyeritari start with bad footing but players can triumph despite the overwhelming odds to change the history of Crown Wars and rewrite it.
If there would be no such freedom, then events would be too predictable and the game would be less enjoyable. So feel free daring to join kingdoms which are destroyed, conquered and so forth. Even history which made dark elves branded with coal black skin and turning into drows can be reverted.
