The Age of the Terrible Emperor, who destroyed every source of opposition to his reign, and used astrological magic to make himself immune to all possible threats. But he overlooked the monasteries, and the monks rose up to overthrow him.
The Terrible Emperor sent an army to slaughter the wild elves in the forest. The elves fled into the caves below the forest, followed by the army. The elves’ shaman pronounced a curse that no one would leave the caves alive.
The End of the Age:
After the overthrow of the Terrible Emperor, agents of the True Emperor hunted down the fugitive Astrologer. In a last, desperate act, the Astrologer tried to change the heavens and rewrite destiny, but succeeded only in causing a massive bombardment of meteors that shattered the Empire.
