The Occien Age (OA)

In the ancient past, before the ages were recorded on paper, there were eight clan-kingdoms in the west.  They were Occien, Meren, Mallan, Lenorë, Arthad, Auris, Elline, and Vamar.  The Kingdom of Occien is the most powerful of these, founded by the god of the Western Wind.  In the east, the Cëran Kingdom rules in the east.  This was an age of legends and the divine ancestors allegedly walked among men.  Great wars occurred in this era, most of which have been exaggerated over time.

The Great War of the Seas was fought between the Vamar and the Meren.  The Vamar used storms, thunder and lightening, while the Meren used winds and waves.  The outcomes is unknown and modern Varagë and Mërën claim victory.
