The 118th Century of the Era of Mortals was a time of extreme crisis. The tumultuous final decades of the 119th century left much of the world in chaos or uncertainty. Aviah’s successor, Sinohm, began to decline, the Emral Empire regained its glory, and a frozen hell entrapped the world, creating far-reaching political and geographical crises that would through the world into a near-stone age for millennia.

- CW & FW – Lysa reaches the Gates to Divinity. Her servants, Thamut and Tithemon, defeat the Guardians. Lysa dons the Crown of Skynhyd, and causes the black stones embedded in the headdress glow and terrible shadows erupt from the desert, forming a great shadow-beast that forces open the gates to the divine worlds. The great raging Cosmic War grinds to a halt as demons and gods alike look in shock at mortals stepping upon the Cosmic Chain, the path that connects all worlds and universes. The Demon Kings immediately flee to Yllkit, Meyshik, and Gafia, and seal the gates.

At the ceremony, Yeli Kyaz, along with an armed entourage, attacks and apprehends Grel. Sulf Pak betrays his father and loyal friend of Grel, Tesh, apprehending him as well and taking control of the Senelflok and Grel’s children, Pail, Grim, and Jaka.

- FW – Lyshema faces problems similar to Sinohm with the Atonthians, Telites, and the Yarmitians. Lysa travels to each of the tribes, and gifts them with the Towers of Abeth, mystical structures that allow crops to grow around them even in snow, allowing the tribes to continue supporting the witch-queen.
11,790 - 11,781 Edit
- FW – Malafh ibn Efenem al-Vashala, chief of the vashali and Lord of the Horses, dies of hypothermia in Ogo, a major Isahnian city. His brother, Elemes ibn Efenem al Vashala, inherits Malafh’s titles. Upon seeing his brother and hundreds of others die from the cold, Elemes orders the evacuation of the rural inhabitants of Isahnah, and expands the major cities with great braziers and temples that could house and feed the influx of tellans and vashali.
- FW & EC – Eresus finally defeats the Lyshemans and Elosians. Elos is annexed as part of Enan, but the long-running war leaves the land devastated, making the spoils of food and gold that were expected rather lacking. Even the fairer climate can’t keep the lands from suffering from famine. Eresus, concerned only about his great victory, names himself Emperor of Enan and Appillus and King of Elos. Chief Abram is executed by fire, and his corpse is sent to Lyshema. The Qeyaians and Pharali head east for home, though many perish on the journey.
- Samik befriends the neighboring villages of Feren and Inize.

- FW – Western Yshoaia collapses.
- FW – Qeyai, Pharali, and Akyria all collapse into their original tribal statuses due to inability to feed their people in the continuing winter.
- FW – Malafh raids the Emral capital of Ehmanada and claims the title of Emperor, crushing any resistance. Ayola, along with many other western provinces of the empire, refuse to be governed by a Vashali and secede.

- ICW – Malafh agrees to recognize Feyel (South Isahnah) as an independent kingdom under the rule of Emperor Dagoli ibn Khali al-Imemnah.

- In Lyshema, Syo asks her mistress if she can travel to Syoa to give blessing to her Emperor Mirem and form ties between Lyshema and the Empire. Lysa permits the trip, and Syo leaves with a thousand warriors.
- FW & H3C – Lysa reveals to the world her hidden treasure: Holst III, son of the late King Holst II of Sinohm, now twenty-nine, and Lysa’s lover. He is named King of Lyshema and Sinohm. Ishis denies this claim, saying that the legitimacy of Holst III’s inheritance of Sinohm was made irrelevant from his marriage to Lysa. Ishis’s council becomes divided on the matter, and many advocate submitting to the prince. The tribes of Eigo, Emidohan, and Zytol join Lyshema. The Bahallans give Ishis a year to make his decision, knowing that if they rush the secession, both they and their western-Lysheman allies would lose their winter support.
- FW – Kaaia begins sending men east, over the miles of frozen ocean, trying to find an area to fish and bring food to their people. The outpost of Conna, built on an outcropping of Hunyohev above the ice that had survived the flood, becomes a major fishing hub for all of Yishiwia, as it lies on the edge of the frozen world and the still liquid ocean of the world.
- FW & H3C – Bahalla joins Lyshema, believing the new influx of fish and other goods gained from trade with the Kaanans would provide their western allies as much aid as necessary. Ishis continues to deny the claim over Sinohm.
- YW – Syo visits Emperor Mirem, and gives her blessing to his rule. She grants him divine right to purge the worshippers of Yggdrek from the empire. Syo stays to witness the destruction of a number of temples in Eyjra and Kavacal’ak, as well as the execution of over 800 heretics. After the executions Syo departs back south for Lyshema.
- FW – Elemes establishes the outpost of Cretan in the outer ice in the fashion of Conna. The two outposts trade across the Nahbel, the deep outer ocean that had been rarely crossed before the freeze. With all inhabitants stretching the limits of Isahnah’s few cities, Cretan is a welcome relief. Elemes refuses to grant these bounties to Feyel which, though warmer than Isahnah, still suffers.
- YW – The Syoshi, a tribe of increasingly Yggdrek-worshipping people, grows unruly as the purge continues. The Keki and Chasi become similarly unruly.
- FW – Nineteen-year-old Harys Gryyr rises as Chief then King in Agosha, having united the anarchical region. Using his prowess, he trains a legion of hunters and warriors that can survive in the snow and provide for his people who can’t. They are named the Iyshi.
- Syo turns her convoy west towards the Gates of Divinity.
- FW – Harys annexes part of Jokyyli and Pharali. Thousands join the Iyshi to learn how to hunt in the winter.
- FW – Hae visits one of his temples in Gremia. Here he gifts the world with thousands of new animals built for the cold, like mammoths, great tigers, wooly horses, and other great mammals of the snow. With so much new prey, the hunters of Yishiwia and eventually the world rejoice.
- FW & H3C – Ishis allies himself with Agosha/Harys. They form a relationship off of trading meat for crops and vice versa. Lysa backs down from aggressive action against Sinohm now that the Iyshi side with Ishis. From this stronger position Ishis officially announces the end of the short-lived Holstian Dynasty.
- Syo reaches Ishirad. Igimah and Ishigad allow her access through the gate with permission from Onytha himself. On the Path of Divinity, Onytha and his chief gods meet Syo, who begs her former master to forgive her and allow her back into the folds of divinity. Syo promises to abandon Lysa for it. Onytha agrees to bring her back, but for a price. Syo is condemned to 10,000 years in Gafia, with a month’s leave every thousand years. Onytha then sends Ahmada and Etia to Oziah to reclaim the gods and demons still in the hands of Lysa.
- Lysa gives birth to Holst IV, son of Holst III and Prince of Lyshema. She also gives birth to his twin, Layda.
- The gods attack Lysa and cut off her arms and head, releasing the trapped demons from her control. Tithemon and Dygomth are also freed. Thamut is captured and sent with the others. The demons are forced back to Gafia and Yllkit. Holst III is left as the sole leader of Lyshema. Many of Lysa’s loyal tribes secede immediately, reducing Lyshema by half.
- Harys takes the lands of Gezyy, Kelom, Myyra, and Telyy.
- FW – The Yishiwian kingdoms begin to stabilize after years of turmoil.
- Ishis instigates a purge of magicians not explicitly loyal to him. Holst III follows Ishis example in Lyshema as a number of rising magic users begin emulating the cult of Lysa.
- FW & YW – The Syoshi, Kiki, and Chasi secede from the Syoan Empire to escape the purge of Yggdrek-worshippers. Following the execution of 600 Yggdrek-worshippers in Eyjra, Mirem declares war on the Yggdreki nations. Chiefs Aberk, Merki, and Vanshi become the Kings of Yggdrek. Their nations united against the Empire.
- Grel’s daughter in Appa, Maryy, weds Torsinus from Inize, forming a strong alliance between the two cities. Torsinus dedicates a temple of Jires, the Lamman incarnation of Yggdrek, to his bride.
- YW – Samik contacts Aberk and his allies, and sends 1,500 Appan soldiers north, just in time to fight in the Fiery Night, a massive battle in which Mirem is defeated and the Yggdreki kingdoms gain independence.
- Mihemma expands further in Eigo and Kothom.
