The Sylvanari Record was originally a series of ballad and tales that were passed down in the Kingdom of Sylvanar. Though the Sylvari Records lacks the dates and accuracy of the Hennite Record or the Gizadi Record, it does capture many of the early legends and myths that have influenced the world as it is today.
The origin of the Sylvari Record is a bit difficult to determine. It is thought that the Dragons, being the only sentient race that was alive to have lived through all of the events, passed on their knowledge to the early races.
The Saga of the Ages
The history of Akara is divided up into many different ages. Each 'age' (ranging from one-thousand to five-thousand years in length, is further divided up into smaller sections called 'times' (which can range from ten to one-hundred years).
Age of Gods
Age of Kings
Time of the Dragons
Age of Kith
The Kith begin spreading out and start the construction of their cities around the world.
The Illith are loosing the war against the Kith
Age of Tauren
A mini-ice age falls upon the world, dropping the relative temperature enough so that the Lizard and Serpent folk must retreat to their warmer climates near the equator. Additionally, as ice sheets spread along the north western edge of Arland, the Lost Isles become passible enough for the Knosi, Capri, and Arisi refugees to cross to the lands of Ushra.
Age of Kin
Elves, Dwarves, Halflings and Gnomes are center-stage.
Age of Rebirth
Humans emerge as a new power within the realm.
