- Main article: Myths of the Dawn Era
- The brothers Anu and Padomay enter into the Void.
- Anu and Padomay create their own Souls, Anui-El and Sithis, respectively, whose interplay creates the Aurbis.
- The creation of the Aurbis starts the Dawn Era and begins the Cycle of the Kalpa.
- The end of the previous Kalpa and the start of a new Kalpa.
- Events of the previous Kalpa:
- The continents of this version of Nirn are called: Lyg and Yokuda
- The races of this version of Nirn are: the Dreugh, the Hist, Yokudan Humans and the Sinistral Elves.
- The Dreugh rule most of Lyg and were led by the Ruddy Man (this kalpa's version of Molag Bal).
- The tyrannical dreugh-kings enslaved the oceans of Lyg and fought constant border wars among themselves.
- The Sinistral Elves rule most of Yokuda with a massive empire.
- The Yokudans worship this kalpa's version of the Aedra: Diagna, HoonDing, Ius, Leki, Morwha (Mara), Onsi, Ruptga (Akatosh), Satakal (Aurbis = Anu + Padomay), Sep (Lorkhan), Tava (Kynareth), Tu'whacca (Arkay), Zeht (Zenithar).
- This kalpa's version of the Magna Ge create the God of Hope, Lehkelogah (Mehrunes Dagon), in Lyg.
- Lehkelogah takes control of the Red Legion and leads a rebellion against the forces of Sep the Upstart.
- The rebellion which saw the towers of CHIM-EL GHARJYG toppled, great cities destroyed, templars of the Upstart slaughtered, and slaves violently revolting against their keepers as hope spread like a brush-fire.
- Lehkelogah's Rebellion brought about the end of the Kalpa with the destruction of their towers.
- Ruptga saved much of the continent of Yokuda, bringing it into the next Kalpa.
- This saved the Yokudan humans and the Sinistral Elves.
- The Hist managed to seal a part of their realm and survive into the next Kalpa, though there their land was split in two: one part staying in Oblivion while the other part was molded into Tamriel.
- A number of Dreugh manage to survive into the next Kalpa, saved by the Ruddy Man.
- The Ruddy Man splits, most of him becoming the Daedric Prince Molag Bal.
- The god known as Xero-Lyg survives into the next Kalpa and becomes one of the Magna Ge.
- Lehkelogah survives into the next Kalpa, but is twisted and transformed into the Daedric Prince Mehrunes Dagon.
- Events of the previous Kalpa:
- The Original Spirits or Et'Ada emerge within the Aurbis are either aligned with Anu (Anuic spirits) or Padomay (Padomaic spirits).
- Lorkhan and Auri-El are the first spirits born into the Aurbis, Lorkhan wanders and Auri-El creates time.
- Lorkhan, a Padomaic spirit, travels the Aurbis and conceives the concept that Mundus should be created.
- Lorkhan tricks or convinces other Et'Ada to join him. Those that do become known as the Aedra and those that do not become known as the Daedra.
- Most Aedra are Anuic spirits while most Daedra are Padomaic spirits.
- The Aedra create twelve worlds of creation. Some creation myths believe each world is a God.
- These twelve worlds are molded together to create Nirn.
- Many of the Aedra die during the creation with some becoming mortals to ensure the continuation of life on Mundus whilst some become the Ehlnofey or 'Earthbones', the Laws of Nature.
- Many of the Aedra, following after Magnus, flee back to Aetherius, a realm within the Aurbis, and become the Magna Ge, tearing holes in Oblivion.
- Auri-El establishes the first kingdoms of the Old Ehlnofey on Atmora and the supposed land Aldmeris.
- The dragon Jermulgraag is created by Auri-El along with countless others of his kind.

- The Towers are constructed, which stabilize time and begin the Merethic Era.
- The first to be constructed was the Adamantine Tower, the Ur-Tower, in the land later known as High Rock. Built on the island of Balfiera by the Aedra themselves. It was the first unassailable spike of reality in the Dawn, the site of Convention, the single oldest building in all the known world.
- The Snow Throat, or the Snow Tower, was built in the lands of Skyrim. The tallest mountain on the continent, it was said to almost reach the heavens.
- In the forests of Valenwood, the Et'Ada Y'ffre created the Perchance Acorn which grew into the first of the Elden Trees, the walking graht-oaks. It became the Green-Sap Tower.
- In the lands of Yokuda, brought into the realm from the previous Kalpa, stood the Orichalc Tower. Created by the gods of the previous Kalpa and brought into the new world by Ruptga.
- The last tower, the Red Tower, was created by Auri-El when he shot Lorkhan's heart into the sea. Where it landed sprung forth the volcano that became known as Red Mountain on the island of Vvardenfell.

However, Daedric Prince Boethiah, as one of the masterminds of the movement, tricks and eats Trinimac. Trinimac's body and spirit are corrupted, and he emerges as the Daedric Prince Malacath.
