6250 BC - 5000 BC
According to historians, this period is the earliest known example of any recorded history, written or otherwise. Info on this period is very scarce, but It is believed that Adam and Eve lived during this period, and several other events recorded in Genesis took place, although it is unclear how literal the events of Genesis are. It is known, however, that the Earth is much older than implied by Genesis, and that, while the general events of the book itself may be true, Adam and Eve were likely the first humans that fully evolved from the species that preceded humanity.
Early civilization is likely to have begun in northeastern Gondwana, shown on the map to the left. During this time period, the Gondwanan, Panthalassan, and Cyrulean Empires are known to have been established, although it is not known in what order and specific dates of expansion are unknown. The Gondwanan Empire developed the French language, the Panthalassan Empire the Latin language, and the Cyrulean Empire the Greek language. Fortunately, it is known what the extent of these empires at the end of this period was, and it is believed that the Cimbrian Empire was established toward the end of this period, unbeknownst to the three major empires previously mentioned. According to what little info is known about the establishment of the Cimbrian Empire, a group of fishermen and their wives were caught in a hurricane and eventually landed on the island of Cimmeria. The Cimbrian Empire was the birthplace of the German language.
5000 BC - 3000 BC
Little information is available about this period either, and nothing is known about the Cimbrian Empire during this time due to a strange lack of documents about it, prompting the name "Dark Era," but it is known that the Edenic and Nazcan kingdoms split from the Gondwanan and Cyrulean Empires respectively around 4600 BC. The Edenic Kingdom was established by Joseph II, the son of the Emperor of Gondwana, over disputes of freedom of religion and mistreatment of those who differed from the traditional Gondwanan mythology, and named after the city of Eden (the believed location of the Garden of Eden). The Cyrulean Empire is believed to have begun its collapse around 4500 BC and completely ceased to exist by 3,700 BC, being swallowed by the Nazcan Kingdom under the leadership of the ruler known as Cephas the Powerful, named for his invention of the modern concept of military and his excellent use of his army to increase his influence.
Cephas the Powerful expanded the Nazcan Kingdom greatly, bringing its borders as far south as the Sea of Lesviya and as far west as the Groot Desert, overtaking the capital of the Panthalassan Empire, Groot, and severely weakening it in 3678 BC. During the siege of Groot, though, Cephas was killed by the Panthalassan Army, prompting the Nazcans to rename the city after him. The Panthalassan Empire then declined for the next few hundred years after the death of Cephas until eventually, its years of greatness were over and it faded into an unimportant nation. By the end of this period, the Nazcan Kingdom covered a vast amount of land, the largest amount of land covered by any single nation in history up until that point.
3000 BC - 1000 BC
The Cimbrian Empire develops the first navy and begins looking for the long fabled "mainland" or "Festland" in German in 2903. It also begins militarizing itself in case of any hostile peoples it might encounter in its travels. The navy lands in far northern Pangea and begins colonizing the area in 2734. By 1000, the Cimbrians had colonized much of the far northern area of Pangea. The empires an kingdoms on the mainland continue expanding, except for the Nazcan Kingdom, which collapses into several nations: Cephasia, Panthalasas, Cyrule, Nazca, and Grooten in 1894 BC after being attacked by the Gondwanans and Edes, causing widespread uprisings and chaos that the king couldn't handle. The Panthalassan Empire expands its boundaries significantly, finally moving back toward other civilizations, and conquering territories in the former Nazcan Kingdom. The Gondwanan Empire expands to the south and east, in an effort to reach the "Golden South" promised by the gods, reaching the southernmost point of Pangea in 1321 BC.
The English language develops in Cephasia, and the Cephasians begin what is known as the Millennial War by trying to conquer the Panthalassan Empire and other surrounding areas in an effort to reform the Nazcan Kingdom while simultaneously expanding to the north to challenge Panthalassan expansion, which, had earned the empire the nickname "The Eagle" due to its eagle shape by 1000, in 1678. By 1000 BC, the Cephasians had expanded north to the "Lakes of Silver," despite being slowed by the massive Kentrikòs mountain range. Meanwhile, in the east, Cyrule develops the Italian language and gains territory in the north, claiming the entire coast of the Cyrulean Gulf by 1,000 BC. This sudden northern territorial rush allowed crowded civilizations to provide their enormous populations with new land, and became known as the "Territorial Revolution." The Cyruleans begin building a navy in 1,101 BC in order to hasten travel and transport throughout the nations new territories, and begin colonizing the southern area of Pangea near Gondwanan territory.
The Edenic Kingdom undergoes a variety of changes in government throughout this period, eventually becoming the first democracy in 1117, and King Jordan I is elected, and brings prosperity to the kingdom, expanding it across the Edenic Channel and Edenic Sea, reaching as south as the Golden Desert by 1000 BC. Little did people know back then that the Edenic Kingdom would soon become a power that could rival that of the Nazcan Kingdom at its peak.
1000 BC - 1 BC
The final era before Christ sees the end of Panthalasas in 932 BC after the nation was divided on various issues and decided it would be more productive to create new nations. In 907 BC, Grootenic peoples migrate south and begin colonizing the area between Gondwana and the Panthalasan Empire, forming the new nations of Aureum, Lupus, and Accipitress. In 891 BC, Nazca splits into Obem and Nazca.
In 834 BC, the Millennial War concludes with a general Cephasion victory, claiming territory in the Panthalassan Empire, but failing to destroy it. The Cephasians and Panthalassans continue moving north until, in 776 BC, they reach the Great Terranean Sea, and begin settling around it. Throughout this period, groups of people from former Panthalassas and Cyrule begin forming new nations to the west of Cephasia. In 699 BC, the Edenic Kingdom is the first nation to successfully sail around the globe, proving that it is round, and they begin colonizing areas near the Panthalassan Empire and Gondwanan Empire, in addition to expanding their existing heartland and increasing their military.
The Cimbrian Empire continues south, claiming all of the territory around the Cimbrian Sea, and reaching the North End of the Great Terranean Sea in 502 BC. Peoples from the Gondwanan Empire absorb what is left of southern Pangea not already part of the Edenic Kingdom in 478 BC. The first contact between mainland powers and the Cimbrians is made in 461, when the Cyrulean navy lands at Cimbria. The two nations establish a trade partnership, allowing both to grow in strength. In 406 BC, however, the 9 Year War breaks out between the two powers over border disputes in the north, resulting in the Cimbrian takeover of northern Cyrule. Many mainland nations fear that the Cimbrian Empire may become too powerful to handle and the Panthalassan Empire and Cephasia go to war with it, pushing its borders back to the Arctic Circle, tipping the scales against the Cimbrian Empire in the west.
The Edenic Kingdom goes to war with the Gondwanans in 208 BC over boundary disputes, and divides the Gondwanan Empire in two, creating the North Gondwanan Empire and South Gondwanan Empire and bridging the gap between its two sides. In 113 BC, the Cimbrian Civil War breaks out between the east and west, creating the Laurasian Empire in the west, and creating several border nations. The Laurasian Empire begins to expand to the south, but doesn't make many gains by 1 BC.
In 2 BC, Jesus Christ is born in the city of Gondwana, where a high concentration of Jews live.
