Era of Tension
This Era lasted from 3206 to 5369.
Despite the overcoming of obstacles in the past and the recent Planar Invasion failing, the people of Ethylia still went through ups and downs. When arcane magic was finally nearly solved completely, magicians rejoiced. But there was still the matter of discovering how to eradicate wild magic all together, a task that perplexed everyone who had achieved any progress in completing arcane magic.
Then there was geography. After the dwarves had wrecked havoc on Ethylia, the people began to spread out and inhabit other areas, eventually becoming satisfied with creating small hamlets instead of the safety that towns and cities brought them. Bandits, monsters, and wild animals all sought the same goal: transition, homestead, expand.
