The Second Age
The second and current age of mortals, marked by a notable development of civilised nations, recording of histories and development of more complex cultural and social structures.
Academics theorise that this age will come to be known as the 'Age of Enrichment' or 'Age of Awakening' to reflect the many discoveries and advancements of society within its years.
However some academics and prophets warn of the dangers of gathering information and power too quickly, and predict a coming time of destruction should such magical and cultural advancement not somehow be slowed or better managed. These warnings largely go unacknowledged or heeded by those in power.
