First Age

  • Wars and strife begin between the Lintanoi and the Asrabi peoples. The Lintador's Avari allies are drawn into the ensuing conflicts.
  • C.A. 550 The Great Sundering occurs when the Lintanoi lead a massive force against the aggressive Asrabi. The Asrabi, although commanded by evil servants of Morgoth, are defeated by the valiant lords of the Lintador and Avari peoples. The broken tribes of the later Firasfrathig are led westward by their lords, split from the rest of the Talathrim. They begin their migration across the great plains of Central Endor.
