Habololy Main 

HISTORY

                      

The following is an abbreviated history of Habololy.  The two versions are interwoven to demonstrate the differences.  The two styles of dating are used to show which events are used in each chronicle.  In other words, an event that has a date in the Habastlian style is considered accurate by the Habastlian chronicle.  The same can be said of the Asticlean chronicle.  When a date is not precisely known, a “c.” is placed before it.  Although the history is documented, that does not mean that it is common knowledge to every being.  Only the most learned loremasters and historians would have a working knowledge of all the events in the chronicle.  Even they would pass over smaller events that were only important for one nation, race or region.  To determine if a character has knowledge of an event, or its date, each event has been given a difficulty rating.  This can be used when a character is attempting to call on that particular knowledge.  For more on that check, see the Skills.

Additionally, there are histories written for each nation and many of the areas of the world.  These histories are avialable in books written for each area or nation.  An example of the extensive histories available can be found here, the history of the Kingdom of Yellowia.
