The Descendants of Tarakona
Rise of the Empire
Though 400 years of darkness brought little to Tarakona, it did bring the races back together. As the Deserved Darkness came to a close, so did 1,300 years of the races being fragmented. The darkness slowly forced them back together.
Following 100 years of greater cooperation, formal alliances and pledges were made. These political agreements eventually evolved into the Empire. With the signing of the Quintet Treaty, the Humans, Elves, Dwarves, Halflings and Eladrin made it official and the Empire was born in the first year of the Races United (R.U.). Simply named, it avoided emphasizing any one race. The different kingdoms and governments scattered across the continent kept their sovereignty, but were unified under an Imperial Government led by the Emperor and the House of Lords.
