1:Dragon Earliest artifacts found of draconic worship among humanoids. Wise and powerful, dragons were soon viewed as guardian deities throughout the lands. Scattering across the world, they seized seats of power and ruled over the humanoid tribal communities as living gods. While arrogant and egocentric, most archaeological evidence over the next millennium revealed that as a species, the dragons made overall benevolent dictators; cruel and selfish tyrants among the dragonlords proved uncommon.
3:Dragon First etherite crystal mine opened on Hyperion. Later analysis reveal that these crystallized stones of magic drove dragons to migrate from world to world.

But before doing so, Hyperion breaks the taboo upheld among dragonkind and teaches sorcery to millions of humans by broadcasting it through his telepathic speech.
1433:Dragon As the last available etherite mines begin to dry up, the dragonkind begin preparations for their departure, naming the disciples of Hyperion as their successors.
1483:Dragon The dragon civilization depart Hyperion, ending the Age of Dragon.
