Age of Creation

From PathfinderWiki

The Age of Creation is a term used to describe the uncounted years of mythic time, beginning with the creation of Golarion and ending with the emergence of mortal races upon its face (the Age of Serpents). It was a time when the deities of Golarion played a much more active role than they do today. It was during the Age of Creation that the great battle that led to Rovagug's imprisonment occurred.[1]


The following events are believed to have occurred during the Age of Creation, although not necessarily in the order given below.

  • The Great Beyond and Golarion are created.
  • Gods appear.
  • The Osirian deity Ra rules the other deities of his pantheon.[2]
  • Alghollthus rule the oceans.[3]
  • Other powerful races, such as the xiomorn Vault Builders, rule the land.[3]
  • The empires of the Vault Builders and alghollthus go to war, eventually leading to the xiomorn abandoning Golarion.[4]
  • The lesser "mortal" races start to appear.
  • An alliance of deities battle Rovagug; unable to destroy the Rough Beast, they imprison him in the Dead Vault.[5]
