Primeval Dynasty

The Primeval Dynasty, sometimes called the Primeval Dynastic Period, marks the era of the Primeval Kings, the first royal bloodline of Elona. It is said to have been the height of Elonian culture, when it rivaled King Doric's three kingdom empire of Ascalon, Orr, and Kryta. It began in 200 BE, five years after humanity arrived on Elona, and lasted for 653 years, ending all of a sudden in 452 AE, due to the Scarab Plague, which wiped out the royal bloodline as well as much of Istan.[1] The last Primeval Kings were the twin queens Nahlah and Dahlah, who were blamed for the plague.[2]

The beginning of this era is known as the Dynastic Reckoning, and it marks the beginning of the Elonian calendar system.

    <Character name>: How did the Primeval dynasty end?
    Queen Nahlah: The scarab plague. Nobody knew where or how it began, but nearly all in the kingdom were wiped out by it.
    <Character name>: Go on.
    Queen Nahlah: Dahlah and I were drunk with the arrogance of youth. We lived for wine and song, for the pleasures of the flesh. And there were those who wished to keep us blind.
    <Character name>: So what happened?
    Queen Nahlah: When the plague first struck, we'd already been led far astray. The people of Elona cried out for help, but we were deaf to their pleas.
    <Character name>: Then what happened?
    Queen Nahlah: We were reviled and cursed—some even blamed us. In the end, the plague claimed our lives as well. Thus ended our rule and that of the Primeval dynasty.
