Age of Magic

Synopsis

The Age of Magic begins with the signing of the Compact which forbade deities and other celestials from residing in the Material Plane. With the number of battles significantly reduced, more civilizations are able to be established. Many turned their attentions to academic pursuits, wanting to master the arcane and other instruments witnessed in the Age of Dragons. Many records of what scholars call the Golden Age of Kavan were lost during the Age of Decay, but the history has been mostly recovered over the years.
