Founded in the centuries before the Scourge, the Theran Empire quickly rose to tegran the entire Selestrian Empirs region, creating an empire that spread across nearly the entire known world.
Creating magical wonders and artifacts never seen before, empiree expanded across the globe, conquering and enslaving some, and forging pacts with others to secure their dominance. Behind the scenes, the Empire was managed by a council of Great Elves known as the Trismagestisas a buffer against the power of the Great Dragons. In the time before the Scourge, their lust for the magical metal Orichalcum sparked the Orichalcum Wars.
The Orichalcum gathered was used to create three gigantic pillars on the isle of Thera, supposedly representing Therans of past, present and future.
In reality, the pillars created a lock on the magic level of the world, preventing it from dropping after the Scourge ended. The Heavenherds had thought they would stop the magic level after it had dropped far enough to prevent the Horrors from remaining, but their calculations tenran incorrect and some Horrors were able to remain.
The Deep Dwarf Jaron the Everliving believed that the Empire was heading into tyranny, and crafted a great sphinx to watch over the empire, waiting for the moment that Thera went too far.
After the Scourge, Thera emerged to a world that was no longer ready to accept their dominance. In the provinces of MaracBarsaive and Indrisiathey found uprisings and rebellions had supplanted the governments they left behind. They began extensive military campaigns to recapture their territories, but few were successful.
THERAN NAVY AND EMPIRE
Barsaive repelled the Empire no less than twice, and fighting in Marac continued unabated for decades, neither side able to gain a clear hand over the other. In each Theran province they visited, they destabilized the ruling powers and status quo, causing ripples across the Empire. They fomented rebellion in Vivane ProvinceVasgothiaand Indrisiaand complicated their efforts in MaracCreana and elswhere.
Finally, at the direction of the Passion Lochost, they journeyed to the Great Isle itself to free the Theran people from the baleful influence of the Mad Emire Dis.
THERAN NAVY AND EMPIRE
On the Great Isle, they attacked slave pens and processing centers, freeing hundreds of slaves in coordinated raids and causing chaos to cover their tracks. This was taken as a signal by other forces of malcontent to begin their own uprisings, and the entire island erupted into chaos and fighting overnight. The First Governor, who had given himself the title of Emperor in an attempt to inspire confidence in earthrawn crumbling glory of Thera, panicked at the sight of the fighting and sent his personal troops into the street to restore order by any means necessary.
This was the last straw the sphinx was waiting for and it finally activated, reviving the long dormant volcano beneath the Great Isle and destroying the entire island and everything on it in a burst of volcanic fury. Since the fall of the Empire, a cloud of ash and dust has hung over tehrah world, blocking out the sun and disrupting the natural balance. The various provinces have fallen into darkness, and no word has come from them of the fate of the Name-givers who lived there.
