AGD:After Gate Destruction, PGD: Pre Gate Destruction

Tomb of Humanity - General Overview


~1000 years PGD - United Empire, Ansalon's greatest Empire is forged in blood by Kerensky with miraculous success. His masterful manipulation of the blossoming human economy and military might, secured the first and most important foundation of what would grow into an empire that would span the known world with his predacessors.
512 PGD - Gate System. What had been apparently innocent explorations into permanent plane travel resulted in something far greater.
395 PGD - Founding of the Yathewah Gate Colony, 3rd one that yea with a similar primary integer of address. That same year, almost the entire expeditionary team is lost to some type of violent poisoning or disease.
389 PGD - Discovery of the mixed ore body pan that extends over almost all of Aurarius, stopping at the Eastern Jungles. Isolation of substance that is found in every local sample of vegitation, which causes brutal death by internal bleeding in all Ansalonia peoples or animals that consume it. Long term resixents respond with "no shit.".
384 PGD - Most aguracultural experimentation ceases, no good compromise found beyond importing food from out-gate. Imported soil stays pure for some time, but not reliable or suitable for long term solutions.
382 PGD - The last of the farmers are returned to Ansalon, as another planet has been found with significant resources.
355 PGD - Mining becomes the staple output of this colony, and large scale production smelting barons begin looking into settling primary work forces planeside.
301 PGD - The first Hammerstein & Reiksgardt Colossus Golem is activated, and production of raw ore practically doubles over night. Through the next few decades, 5 more would be commissioned and built. Their colossal size would make them formidable engines of destruction, through the war of five cities, in a few generations. Mostly only suceeding in destroying each other, thankfully.
123 PGD - The Dwarven Revolt on Ansalon is crushed brutally by Emperor Kelesk. What few prisoners are left are sent here to Yathewah.
