The Age of Iron and Arcanium
Karland's History of The World - Book 2 The Haeliff Empire
The Haeliff Empire, also known as the Empire of Bronze or the Haeliff Bronze Empire, was founded shortly (relatively speaking, as we can assume that it was at least some several thousand years after the early mortals recorded the final battles between the pantheon and the creatures of the void) after the primordial period.
We can attribute the rise and expansion of the empire to their devoted study and early adaptation of the magical arts. So favored was this early civilization that it is said the pantheon “bestowed upon them great powers and lifespans much longer than any race living on the Earth.” Whether this is the superstitious conjecture of early historians we know not, but we do know that the reigns of emperors were recorded in centuries and that their deaths were attributed to “poisons, wars, and jealous intrigues of the imperial court.”
So vast and mighty was the empire of the Haeliffs that they dominated all other mortal races on the earth and enslaved the Morgh and more troublesome tribes of Humans.
