Timeline of Numeria
The following timeline describes major events in the history of Numeria.
Date & Event
–5293 ar Earthfall.
Many Kellid tribes in lands that will become known as Numeria perish, but enough
survive by hiding out in caves to allow them to emerge and rebuild their nomadic tribal societies as the Age of Darkness recedes.
In part driven from their caverns by increasing conflict with the deeper-dwelling orcs (who are themselves being pushed upward by the dwarves and the Quest for Sky), Kellids finally return to dwelling on the surface of Golarion. At first they are disoriented, finding the world changed and more dangerous, yet the Kellids’ legendary toughness serves them well.
