Imperial Age

The Imperial Age was the time of two great empires – dragonborn Arkhosia and tiefling Bael Turath. No exact dating was known,but the Imperial Age must have ended thousands of years ago, since Vor Kragal was exposed to the world recently for “the first time in millennia”. [DR364, p.19]

Rise of 2 Empires

The dragonborn of Bahamut finally triumphed over those of Tiamat, forging the empire of Arkhosia in the arid lands of the south, ruled over by royal lines of mighty dragons. [R&C, p.24; W&M, p.21]

Bael Turath was founded by humans. When the empire expanded beyond the grasp of its power‐hungry nobles, they swore to retain their rule even at the cost of their humanity. After destroying a few houses that refused, the nobles summoned devils and used rituals to seal their infernal pacts, becoming the first tieflings. Boosted by the new‐found powers, the Hell‐Chained Empire continued to expand. [PHB, p.49; R&C, p.44]

The tieflings of Bael Turath created the kruthiks by infusing reptiles with fiendish blood. [MM, p.171]

Imperial Wars

Bael Turath and Arkhosia came into contact, descending into “decades of warfare”. (Other sources say the wars spanned “hundreds of years”.) Border skirmishes grew with each year. Several full‐scale wars broke out, including the War of Wings. [R&C, p.44; PHB, p.49; DR365, “Ecology of the Dragonborn”]

Myrdroon led storm giants and white dragons against the tiefling capital of Vor Kragal. His Spear of the Skylord destroyed Middendark and shattered. The storm giant lord was slain by poisonous arrows shortly after. [DR364, p.23]

The War of Teeth began. Serpentus Rift, one of the seven Jewels of the South, was destroyed by a massive earthquake dragon,possibly unleashed by the tieflings. The threat was ended by an entire dragonborn army. [W&M, p.22; R&C, p.44]

The final War of Ruin broke out. A ten‐year siege ended when the tiefling general Achazriel tunneled into Razortear, an Arkhosian fortress. Both sides suffered heavy losses, and the Battle of Razortear marked the beginning of the end for both empires. [R&C, p.44]

CY‐1000: Vlaakith ascended the throne of Tu’narath as the lich‐queen of the githyanki “over a thousand years” ago. [MM, p.129]
