From Ryzom Forge Wiki
- The Fyros are divided into a multitude of nomadic tribes which wander the Great Desert. They settle near the oases but especially near bothayas forests, fascinated by the fires that these trees provoke. The tribes vie for the territories rich in water and fire.
- The Fyros first encounter the Karavan who spread the word of Jena, the mythology of the Great Dragon, and the Prophecy and, aware of the danger to the Bark from the fascination of the Fyros with fire, also teach them how to control it. The relationship remains difficult though.
- The Fyros meet the Kamis for the first time, who try to communicate with them about the fire. However, the Fyros take them for animals and try to make of them game to be hunted, as they did with the frahars.
- A Fyros tribe looking for water discovers the northwestern shores of Trykoth and encounters a group of Trykers who, frightened, try to avoid them. Conflicts occasionally break out. The news spreads rapidly to the desert and the Fyros tribes soon clash for the control of the first Water Route.
- The Trykers overcome their reluctance and get in touch with the Fyros to ask for their support against the Matis who enslave their brothers northeast of Trykoth. The Fyros refuse to help them but observe from a distance the doings of the Matis.
- A gigantic wildfire devastates the whole southern half of the Desert down to the shores of Trykoth; the smoke is visible from the closest borders of the zoraï country. Many Fyros lose their lives while trying to escape and the survivors are charged with being the cause of the disaster. The Kamis take part in the fight against the wildfire.
- The road to Trykoth is closed and a new route is opened that crosses the territory of the Matis, who, meeting the Fyros for the first time, letting them pass for the moment.
- Birth of Dyros.
- Some tribes, taking advantage of the nascent trade with the Trykers, look to settle down and found cities throughout the Desert. Fyre becomes the fief of a tribe that begins to federate others, attracted by its richness, or crushed by its power.
- Birth of Hempios, eldest son of Dyros.
- After a great military campaign, Dyros founds the Empire of the Fyros and sets up the seat of his power in Fyre. The trade routes are secured and outposts are built.
- Birth of Dalynder, younger son of Dyros.
- The tribe of the Dune Riders is founded by some Fyros who deny the authority of Dyros. They want to return to the nomadic way of life and refuse any contact with the other peoples of the Bark.
- The great Munshia river dries up suddenly and the Fyros soon discover that the Matis have built a dam on its upstream course, which crosses their country. At the same time, the taxes levied by the Matis on the Water Route, which crosses their territory to reach Trykoth, are made burdensome.
- The Fyros and the Trykers conclude an alliance and begin the construction of a 30-foot wide aqueduct linking Trykoth to the Desert. Thirty large wind turbines force water circulation.
Merchants and warriors of both nations construct fortified points all along the course of the aqueduct, which encroaches on the Matis territory. Thus breaks out the War of the Aqueduct (also known as War of Civilizations) between the Matis and the Fyros-Tryker alliance.
- The Matis unsuccessfully attempt to sever the aqueduct. The alliance between Fyros and Trykers is strengthened, with the Fyros undertaking to protect the Trykers in exchange for a regular supply with water.
- The Imperial alchemists discover, thanks to the Karavan’s teachings, the pyrotechnic properties of certain materials. The Fyros invent firearms and fireworks.
- Dyros the Great is killed in a battle against the Matis. Hempios, his eldest son, becomes Emperor. He pushes the Fyros to further improve their knowledge of fire.
- Birth of Krythos, Dalynder's eldest son.
- Birth of Arispotle, second son of Dalynder.
- Hempios dies suddenly without descendants and his brother Dalynder becomes Emperor.
- The Great Forge of Fyre is built and Dalynder will be later nicknamed “The Pious” because of his association with the Karavan, begun upon this occasion.
- Birth of Ryclid, third son of Dalynder
- Krythos becomes Emperor at the death of his father, Dalynder the Pious
- The Fyros, in spite of Dalynder's fervour, have never ceased testing the prohibitions of the Karavan, especially those about the Prime Roots. During the rule of Krythos, the Fyros miners organize themselves and found a company (the Black Faces) which enables them to develop a matchless know-how in the field of prospecting and exploitation of resources.
- The Fyros, in search of a new battle front (to attack the Matis from the rear), make an incursion into Zoraï country taking advantage of a breach in the Great Wall and besiege Zoran which resists thanks to its fortifications. The Fyros abandon the siege but only after succeeding in setting fire to the Great Zoraï Library.
- Krythos is seriously wounded in a battle and abdicates in favour of his brother Arispotle.
- The Karavan ask the new Emperor to build a marvel to the glory of Jena but Arispotle, displeased by the support given his foes, the Matis, by the Karavan, refuses. The Karavan then threaten him with excommunication. It is at this time that a pack of varynx kill the mount of Arispotle during a hunt, and the Emperor, thrown to the ground, suddenly finds himself in a very perilous position. A Kami appears who repels the predators and tells the Fyros present how to heal their Emperor. In gratitude, the latter places himself under the protection of the Kamis, who, in exchange, introduce the Fyros to magic.
- Birth of Cerakos, son of Arispotle.
- Birth of Pythese, son of Ryclid.
- Arispotle is killed in battle and his son Cerakos takes the throne.
- Cerakos strengthens the pact of friendship with the Kamis and is the originator of a good part of the laws still in force nowadays, which earns him the nickname of "Just".
- Birth of Abylus, son of Cerakos.
- Cerakos the Just is killed in battle and his son Abylus being too young, his uncle Ryclid, last son of Dalynder, succeeds him.
- Under the rule of Ryclid, the War of the Aqueduct, alternating between great battles and guerilla tactics, has already lasted more than a century. It changes course when the Fyros army, taking advantage of a strategic mistake of the King Noblis, captures Karavia, the holy city of the Matis, at the end of a violent counterattack. This victory relieves, for a considerable period, the pressure exerted on the Aqueduct by the Matis, whose morale is badly affected by the loss of this strategic stronghold and sacred symbol of their nation.
- Death of Ryclid who leaves the throne to his son Pythese.
- Pythese dies during a hunting party and Abylus succeeds him.
- Abylus asks for the creation of a council of chroniclers to write the History of the Fyros and lays the foundations of the Great Library of Fyre. These acts bring to the Emperor the nickname of "Learned".
- Birth of Pyto, son of Abylus the Learned.
- Birth of Thesop, son of Abylus the Learned.
- Birth of Krospas, son of Pyto.
- Some Fyros accidentally discover mysterious ruins in the Prime Roots.
- The Guild of Miners is created to study the ruins and better understand the past in order to find the Great Dragon. Thus the Empire openly defies the prohibitions of the Karavan.
- Encouraged by their discoveries, the Fyros undertake excavations everywhere in the Desert, mining deeper and deeper. While conducting such excavations a group of miners at work not far from the town of Coriolis pierces a burning vein that quickly ignites the dry areas around. Driven by the west wind, the flames spread, destroying the nearby city, and carve a corridor of smoldering desolation all the way to the borders of the Matis Forest. The blaze rages for weeks, cutting off the Water Route.
- The Matis jump at this opportunity and, while the Fyros increase their attempts to contain the fire, invade Trykoth, which has been left unprotected. Aniro III besieges Karavia and takes it easily from the Fyros who are deprived of reinforcements.
- Abylus, now elderly and realizing that without the water of Trykoth, the Empire will be ended, launches a last ditch attack led by his son Pyto to restore the Water Route. Pyto manages to turn back Aniro III, who withdraws from Trykoth to protect Karavia. bracketed between the assaults of the Fyros and the guerilla actions of the Trykers led by Loria, Aniro III asks for negotiations. *The Treaty of Karavia is signed by Abylus the Learned, Loria and Aniro III. The Water Route is reopened, in exchange for which the Matis keep Karavia. Thus ends the War of Civilizations which has lasted a century and a half.
- Abylus the Learned dies and his son Pyto becomes Emperor.
- Pyto is assassinated by his brother Thesop who seizes power, the latter is also suspected of having murdered his father, Abylus.
- The reign of Thesop is long despite the revolt simmering since his fratricide: the generals, many of them having fought at his brother's side to reopen the Water Route, do not forgive him this heinous crime. Thesop starts a witch hunt and orders a brutal crackdown on his opponents.
- Birth of Cerakos II, son of Krospas.
- Birth of Leanon, daughter of Krospas.
- Thesop’s life ends with his being murdered. No funeral pyre is created for his funeral and his remains are thrown to the gingos. Krospas, the son of Pyto, retakes the power from the murderer of his father. During the nine years of his reign, he never stops working to undo what Thesop had wrought.
- Krospas dies and his son Cerakos II succeeds him.
- Birth of Dexton, son of Cerakos II.
- Excavations and searches in Prime Roots never really cease, even after the Fire of Coriolis. New work sites are opened all over the Desert. One of them triggers a horror such as homins have never known, when the Fyros break into a nest of Kitins. Frightened, the miners kill the young Kitins they encounter, triggering the anger of the giant adult insects. Their reaction, which will remain engraved in homin memory under the name of the Great Swarming, devastates first the Fyros territory from west to east. The Matis take advantage of that to attack and the Water Route is severed once again.
- But victory is in vain because all homin civilizations are soon swept away by the fury of the Kitins. Elias Tryton appears to Oflovak Rydon and shows him the way to the Rainbows Gates.
