Age of Legend1 is a general term used to refer to the "prehistoric" time before the destruction of the Starstone led to the Age of Darkness in -5293 AR. It is marked by the rise of the first human civilization on the lost continent of Azlant,2 the establishment of the Thassilonian Empire on Avistan's mainland,3 the rise of the dragon rulers in Tian Xia, and the creation of the cyclops nation of Koloran on the continent of Casmaron.45 It was preceded by the unmeasured time of the Age of Serpents, and ended when the Starstone brought on the collapse of the first human civilizations and the Age of Darkness.6

Tian Xia

In Tian Xia, it is thought that dragons ruled the land by divine mandate during this period (which is known as the Age of Dragons there), waiting for humans to assume their rightful place.7
