The history of Umbria is divided broadly into three Eras. Before the first era is considered myth and legend. The First Era began when Ullr united the clans as the first Patriarch and continued some seven hundred years after his disappearance until the beginning of the Giant War. The Second Era lasted through the Giant War and another seven hundred years, ending with the landfall of people from the Mainland, which ushered in the third and current era.
The vast majority of Nords have little interest in history, even their own. The names of famous warriors and battles may live on, but there is little love for the politics and details of much of their history. The elves and dwarves, living much longer than Nords, have quite a different view of the continent’s history and the significance of certain events. Despite sharing such close quarters, the Nords and the other races have co-existed with very few significant disputes or events.
