The History of the World and all its grandeur in as few words as possible, otherwise known as a brief history of the world
The world is an old place, throughout the landscape there are ruins that are thousands of years old. But for most, history only goes so far back as the arrival of Achazriel, the tiefling warlord who conquered all of Krinoch and brought them under a single unified rule.
So great was this influence that the wise began using a new reckoning for time. Years began being counted as years after Achazriel’s Landing, or simply AL for short, as opposed to the old Years of the Kingdom which had been used prior.
Achazriel came from across the seas, hoping to rebuilt a tiefling nation with the glory of their former empire of Bael Turath. The lands of Krinoch were vast, and ripe for the taking. Achazriel brought forth her legions and swept over the country like a plague.
Within less than a year Achazriel had conquered most of the lands of Krinoch, save for the North, which would fall in less than a year, and the realm of Travaria, which would not bow to a tiefling warlord for many years.
When Achazriel marched into Hesjing Svent her armies met no opposition, the leaders of the city simply bent their knees to their new ruler. For this Achazriel let the citizens keep their lands, and their city.
From Swordbreaker Bay, the location where Achazriel landed her armies atop a hill she began the construction of the Black Keep.
Achazriel’s son, Tifus completed the initial construction of the Black Keep, and became the second tiefling ruler to sit atop the Ebon Throne.
