Third Astral Era

c.5,000 YBC ~ 4,000 YBC

It was during this age that the Allagan Empire rose to power and flourished through all of Vylbrand, Aldenard, and even some of the northeast continent, until the end of the age.

Fourth Umbral Era

c.4,000 YBC ~ ? YBCUmbral Era of Earth

The events of this era saw the downfall of the Allag.

Fifth Astral Era

Around three millenia ago. This was the age of the Endless Frost. During this time, magic was discovered, born out of a need to survive the barren wasteland of snow and rime.

After the snows thawed, magic was used in myriad ways and this led to the creation of Black Magic, with White Magic being created at the same time to keep its destructive power in check. Unfortuneatly it was discovered that White Magic was just as destructive as the Black, and the flow of aether dried.

Legends say that it was at the end of this era that "a terrible blackness" filled the sky and descended, blocking out all light and darkening the hearts of men. A struggle for wealth and power among nations caused the collapse of all morality and chaos engulfed the land. The Twelve had no choice but to collapse the realm into a new umbral era.

Sixth Umbral Era

Legends say that in response to the chaos and destruction seen from the world of men at the end of the Fifth Astral Era, The Twelve drowned the world in a cleansing deluge, saying "Behold the power of pure water!" Much of Eorzea was destroyed.
