* Plot Information for Nharkava

Rebellion has swept the Territory in the south as Glacia dominates the north. Landen and Blood join forces to spread a message of equality with any method possible while Glacia works to infuse the land with power and the people with their Dark Beliefs. The Rebellion, led by a Council of Eight, is not always in agreement but none can resist the power, and the danger, the movement has generated.

Timeline of Events
« on: Mar 20, 18, 09:58:48 AM »
16,000 BP: The founding of the Province of Sikkim, by Kamuda Patel and The Province of Goa, by Madhuri Ganuush.

15,000 BP: The founding of the Province of Jharkand by Anandi Gadhavi.

15,000-991 BP: While conflict between Provinces was common, the culture kept it in check. The culture had built a tradition of strong extended family ties and a respect for life and the natural order of things. Guests were treated as family.  The Landen worked the land, the Blood cared for them both, and cultural creativity flourished- mostly around religious themes, but also secular works as travelers moved through the land and lent bits of their culture to Nharkava’s own. The greatest influence on Nharkavan life remained at the local level. This lasted until the Invasion.
991 BP: The Eyrien Invasion happens. The invaders name the Territory Nharkava, giving the land and its people their first sense of national identity. The invasion isconfusing to the locals; they think it at first merely a temporary colonization or immigration. The Eyrien’s retreat within the year, and life goes back to normal.

200 BP-Purge: The culture becomes corrupted; material goods begin to outweigh all else. District as well as Province level conflict becomes common. Caste hierarchy becomes the only hierarchy and Blood begin abusing the Landen.

50 BP: Nharkava’s Landen first form the Council of Eight in response to its corrupted Blood population, to handle the logistics of trying to keep people safe and fed when their Blood rulers are more interested in domination and decadence than actual governance. It lasts less than five years before being solidly crushed.

Purge: The Purge kills all but a handful of Light Jeweled Queens and devastates the Nharkavan Blood.

1-70 AP: Between the lack of Queens and Nharkava’s own Purge-disturbed spirit population, the land begins to suffer unusual environmental events and lack of renewal. The heart of its jungles remain, but large swathes of farmland begin to fade and famine begins to set in.

The Council of Eight are re-formed by Nharkava’s Landen in response to the dual problems of now having both a vast swath of people/land to manage and a significant dearth of the Blood who would normally fill these governing positions to provide structure and order.

70-100 AP: The Council of Eight slowly dissolves as the Blood begin to recover and assert their dominion over the Territory. The rise of Lahari Rien as Nharkava’s first real Territory Queen, drawing upon her connections and logistical savvy, marks its official end (accompanied as it is by the executions of two of its more stubborn leaders).

140 AP: Mahamari Rien succeeds her mother as Territory Queen of Nharkava. The priestesses of Nharkava slowly regain control over the disruptive spirits.

177 AP: Glacia fell upon Nharkava, led by their Gray-Jeweled Priestess Queen. The pride of Nharkava was wounded then, to allow Isyviel the Queen of Glacia, entrance into their land or face a Grey Jeweled Queen in her righteous fury. Some still act as if there was little wrong with Nharkava, that it was only a matter of time until they fully rebounded from the Purge.  In truth, Queen Mahamari Rien had little recourse.

178-183 AP: The Glacian influence is seen mainly within the Province of Jharkhand. For many Blood this influx of strength is initially a welcome one. The land receives its due and the power their neighbors offer promises enough potential to subdue a riotous Landen population. Bruised pride doesn’t like it, but few truly think to question the price before the tide turned and a new aristocracy begins to pillage the new storeroom to the Star of Kaeleer, as well as to spread the gospel of the Dark Religion.

183 AP:- The Friends of Rose Neela are established as a covert resistance/aid group by the Nharkavan blood in response to the unjustified killing of a Rose-Jeweled Healer for which no Price was paid.

184 AP: The Rebellion is started by a gathering of Landen who believed equality was long past due. Blood, Jeweless mainly, are quickly accepted into the Rebellion so long as they pledged their loyalty with words and honor. The Council of Eight, which now stands as the leadership of the Rebellion, is reformed at the inception of the Rebellion. It is the monks of Gautama who present the idea during first days of the movement in hopes of controlling the rebellion and limiting the blood shed they think imminent.

Summer 191 AP: The Ebon Gray Triangle of Glacia destroys the Territory Court in response to their desperate kidnapping of Elisif Brenden’s parents to force their withdrawal from Nharkava and its aging and ailing Queen Mahamari Rien.

In response to the news, the Courts of Goa and Sikkim replace their ruling queens with Warlord Princes- ostensibly for the protection of their rarest and most precious caste. The new Province Rulers, both being Light-Jeweled Warlord Princes, are both collared (along with Jharkand's Queen) and have their control rings placed with responsible Dark-Jeweled individuals before Queen Brenden and her Triangle leave the Territory.

Fall 191 AP: Elisif sends Maarika Sydan-Harmaa to rule Nharkava and put the Territory more directly under Glacian rule.

Spring and Summer 192 AP: A period of uneasy peace fills the Territory. Lady Maarika settles in, but takes no drastic actions to solidify her rule. Most rebellious elements are either intimidated by last summer’s show of power by Glacia, or recovering from it. So far the Landen Council and Rebellion have not attended any pitched battles, using only guerrilla tactics to raid and disrupt major Blood cities. The Rebellion is trying to be a nuisance while showing other Landens and Light or Jeweless Blood they are powerful. The recruitment drives also focus on Sikkim and Goa Provinces, as they are less attuned to the Glacian Doctrine. No great victories or losses have been seen by the Rebellion, as they hide out in the maze of cave and mountains in the Southern parts of Nharkava. While they are obviously outlaws, each day that passes adds more fuel and more voices asking for a war, for a true showing of power. That time is not yet, but the mouths who say the words fill more heads with ideas of bloodshed and destruction each day.
