History of Ghelu

The History of Ghelu is still in development. Right now the world is around the year of one hundred after the end of the Mage Wars. Most humanoid societies including the dominant societies of the Manes and the Budmen take the year of the end of the Mage Wars as the beginning of the New Era and count from 0 upwards since then. Right now I started to develop the history of Greater Harland in general and the Urland in particular.


Disclaimer: The words and especially names are freely invented by me out of various reasons. I have written several words in bold font to distinguish them from the „normal“ world. Those bold font words descripe something inside the world I am creating here and have thus no direct connection to reality. I hope this clears any misunderstanding up front. Best example would be the word manic, which originates from the term Mane or Manes, describing a human in my world, not a real life term about a mental condition.
