  • Middle Kingdom period of Imaskar
  • -6422 DR to -4370 DR
    This period of Imaskari begins as a rampaging krakentua razed the Imperial city of Inupras, forcing the Imaskari to abandon their ancient capital.

The anarchy that followed split the empire into Upper and Lower Imaskar. »

  • The Late period of Imaskar
  • -3920 DR to -2488 DR
    The reunification of Lower and Upper Imaskar under the strong hand of Lord Artificer Omanond, and the restoration Inupras as the sole capital of Imaskar marked the start of this period.

Three millennia before the Netherese discover the Plane of Shadow, Madryoch the Ebon Flame was busy cataloging its dark secrets. It was there that Madryoch crafted the Shadow Stone and set in motion his plan to overthrow Omanond and seize control of Imaskar. Fortunately for the empire, the young prodigy Hilather confronted Madryoch in the frontier fortress of Metos and ultimately trapped the shadow lord in the Plane of Imprisonment. »
