Tyrnavalle civilizations

Back to Tyrnvalle History

Compared to Fanar, Tyrnavalle remained a wild and unsettled land until the end of days.  Rough terrain made trade difficult and kept civilizations apart.  The nations of Tyrnavalle most resembled your ancient Greek city-states.  Each nation controlled the land it could see and patrol, but not much farther than that – it simply wasn’t practical or affordable to overextend the arm of protection.  Also, the early settlers weren’t inclined to world build.  They were escaping the tyranny of the God-Emperors and had not wish to create a new empire.

The founding years of Tyrnavalle’s city-states during the Age of Mankind are listed below and where appropriate, the city-state’s last year.  Not surprisingly, some sites were the location of more than one city over time.  The criteria didn’t change too much from one century to the next..
