The first creature to emerge from Chaos was known as Iyezaresrever. With a tyrannical disposition, he fashioned Chaos into a universe that was still severely disorganized and unstable, made for the sole purpose of pleasing his cruel and narcissistic desire.
Before he caused too much damage to existence, a group some call the “Goddesses” followed him from out of Chaos, and they engaged in fierce battle. Eventually, Iyezaresrever was defeated, and both him and his awful creations sealed away. Then to resuscitate reality, the Goddesses used the remainder of Chaos to create the livable universe we know today.
The Seven Eras
The history of Zenkora can be roughly divided into seven time periods, each approximately twice as short as the one preceding it. The complete timeline of Zenkora measures just under 10,000 years, both ends a mystery to most.
1st era: War of titans
We begin on the tumultuous battlefields of the ancient world, where unfolds our historical drama of three warring empires. These titanic civilizations blossomed on an infant earth, a wild land of gods and monsters. It was a time of unimaginable fury where the glory of mankind reached a summit never to be seen again. This is Zenkora’s First Era, the mythical “War of Titans”, when giants both literal and figurative roamed a world lost in time.
2nd era: the dooms seven
With the eventual fall of the three empires came the Second Era. Marked by shadows and the haunting memory of catastrophes from the age before, it would eventually come to be known as “The Dooms Seven”. The remnants of humanity scrambled to regain their power, lost in the fog of the previous era, and once again all peoples of the world were plunged into tumultuous times of war and paranoia. In every nation, whispers of new legends slowly began to bloom...
3rd era: everendgame
In the Third Era, a dastardly plan of dire proportions erupts in the Everworld, a group of seven alternate planes of reality, each of which governs a different facet of the universe. Travel between the regular world and the planes of the Everworld was once plentiful and rife with thrill and adventure. Now the Everworld looms in ancient obscurity, once again waiting for pioneers and pilgrims from all corners of the universe. Here enters Walker, who has the appearance and demeanor of a child, but destined with footsteps to terrify gods. He is tasked to bring an end to a devious plot to overwhelm the living world in perfect chaos.
4th era: the hand of dawn
After centuries of dire and desperate struggle, humanity has once against expanded to all corners of the globe. Industrialization has run rampant, with strange and fantastic concoctions brewing at the borders where new and crazed science meet old eldritch magics. With the Great War looming on the horizon, the heartbeat of the world is choked with anxiety, accompanied by the relentless beat of machinery.
5th era: supers rising
We enter now into the modern years of the Fifth Era. Fresh from the calamitous Great War, the newly revived world charges headlong into prosperity and development, like a garden just moments after winter’s end. This is the age of daring superheroes, magnificent sorcerers, and brilliant scientists.
6th era: union of worlds
The Sixth Era sees the expansion of humanity into space, and the challenges of diplomacy among humanity and their newfound extraterrestrial neighbors. Yet the threat of war is ever active, and before long, humanity is once again thrown into catastrophic combat unlike any in memory.
7th era: The end of times
The Seventh and final Era is the darkest yet. In their final moments, humanity struggles as a last flickering candle in the empty bleakness of the cosmos. Even now, war ravages what little landscape is left, and yet the hope and strength of individuals seems ever immortal.
