The timeline of the world is anything but strange. However, I (drdoodlittle) will try my best to put it together. This is the timeline that I'll use in all of my RP's, but you don't have to if you don't want to.

About 8,000 years ago, all documents and great technologies were utterly and completely destroyed during a great and terrible war between Gods. After the war, the repurcussions were so great that it split the continents (until then a giant supercontinent) up, so The Gods decided to call a truce before they had to create a Third World.
