The dwarves attack both sides, and quickly Blacklight and Skyrim make peace and focus on fighting the Dwemer. The rest of Tamriel is alerted.

  • 5E 511 - The Tsaesci sign a pact of non aggression with the Ka Po' Tun and the Tang Mo, and states that in case Dwarves invade Akavir, they would work together.
  • 5E 534 - A second invasion of Vanchningthfell, lead by Esvethfell, a dwarven faction in Elsweyr, along with a few other major Dwarven states in Black Marsh and Cyrodiil and Hammerfell. Esvethfell had become extremely powerful over the years, and Vanchningthfell was being obliterated.

  • 5E 566 - A group of dwarves in North-East Cyrodiil discover in an old cave several red books written in Tamriellic. Translating them to Dwemeris, which had become the only spoken language at this point, they discover the books were written by an ancient wood elf known as Manker Camoran, praising Mehrunes Dagon and calling for the invasion of Tamriel by the Daedra through Oblivion Gates. These dwarves, who were unsatisfied with the advanced technological Dwarven life, begin worshipping Mehrunes Dagon, and begging him to invade Tamriel once more to free them from technology. They discover about how Dagon's forces were defeating, with the smashing of the Amulet of Kings. They learn that Oblivion and Mundus were forever sealed by Martin Septim, which dissappoints them greatly - but they continue worshipping Mehrunes Dagon believing his blessings will help them free themselves of technology. These dwarves form the New Mythic Dawn. Ghrovnak Dobwarn, the dwarf who initially found it, is declared as the leader of the NMD.
  • 5E 567 - Mehrunes Dagon speaks to Tosh Raka, making him aware of the New Mythic Dawn of Tamriel, and manages to convince him to work with the NMD and himself. Dagon creates artifacts in both Tamriel and Akavir that the Ka Po' Tun and New Mythic Dawn could use to have instantaneous, inter-continental contact to coordinate the invasion of Tamriel.
  • 5E 570 - The Padomaic Islands of Esrionet. Yneslea and Cathnoquey are occupied by the Ka Po' Tun's forces, and over the following decade Tosh Raka's forces build up on these islands, preparing for the invasion.

  • 5E 581 - Tosh Raka commands his forces to cross the Padomaic Ocean towards Tamriel. However, it would not take long for the Dwarves to notice the invasion. The nations of Tamriel form a coalition to fight the Akaviri invasion. Months later, the New Mythic Dawn would strike, with revolution breaking out across the continent. Many of the New Mythic Dawn were well trained in magic - Mages in Fifth Era dwarvish society believed technological progress would result in the replacement of magic. The mages of the NMD would easily be able to compete with Dwarven weapons & armour. The Akaviri invasion force lands in Southern Morrowind, and heads north to capture Mournhold which would be used as a key base by Tosh Raka's army. By the end of the year, Morrowind is being stormed by the Ka Po' Tun. Black Marsh remains untouched by the Akaviri invasion.
  • 5E 582 - The Ka Po' Tun reach Vvardenfell, and a large amount of the army lands on the island. At this point many Dwemer kings are doubting their victory in the war, and a minority of them begin to side with the New Mythic Dawn and Akaviri invasion. Morrowind by the end of the year is completely under Akaviri control. Dwarven cities are ransacked and destroyed by Ka Po' Tun and NMD forces, and many return to the barren state they were in for thousands of years.
  • 5E 583 - Many dwarven kings still fighting against the NMD and Ka Po' Tun try their best to re-open access to Vanchningthfell, but there would be nothing they could do. Many more surrender to the enemy.
  • 5E 586 - The war ends with the last Dwemer kings in Alinor surrendering. Ghrovnak declares that the Sixth Era had begun, and the evils of technology would never rise again.

Sixth Era

  • 6E 13 - Most of the Ka Po' Tun living in Tamriel move to Elsweyr, the homeland of the now extinct Khajiit. The humid environment suits the Ka Po' Tun well, and the Elsweyrn population becomes 80% Ka Po' Tun by 6E 200.
  • 6E 25 - Black Marsh becomes inhospitable as Dwarven technology had helped the Dwemer live in the region.
  • 6E 41 - The last underground Dwarven city is abandoned. The cities aboveground have almost entirely returned to Fourth Era life.
  • 6E 43 - Many dwarves, especially outside of Morrowind and Cyrodiil, which both had more pro-Dagon, Ghrovnak-supporting upper classes, end their worship of Dagon quietly. However, the Prince of Destruction heard, and cursed those who had abandoned his worship. The dwarves who had abandoned worship of Dagon were cursed with darkened skin and horns, making them almost indistinguishable from the Dremora of the Deadlands. The so called traitors of Dagon would be named the Ahrkmer, "Ahrk" meaning Destruction in Dwemeris: refering to Dagon being Prince of Destruction. Mehrunes Dagon would loosen his influence over Tamriel in the coming decades, and by 6E 500 worship of Dagon would be basically gone.
  • 6E 44 - The Arkhmer began worshipping the Eight Divines, which had been weakened severely during the reign of the Dwemer. The Dwemer had recorded all varieties of the Eight Divines pantheon, as they saw it as a very interesting topic despite believing they were better than the gods. The Arkhmer decided to choose the Aldmeri pantheon, of which their ancestors worshipped.
  • 6E 60 - At this point Dwemer and Ahrkmer communities would have seperated, as both races began to resent each other. Morrowind, Cyrodiil, Skyrim and Hammerfell remained mostly Dwemer, while Ahrkmer migrated mostly to the Summerset Isle, being seperated from the rest of the continent. Valenwood and High Rock would also end up being populated by the Ahrkmer.
  • 6E 161 - The Principality of New Elsweyr would declare itself an independant nation. The Prince of New Elsweyr would declare himself a subject of Tiger-Dragon Emperor Tosh Raka, however Tosh Raka would know that the Ka Po' Tun of Elsweyr would over the generations abandon worship of him.
  • 6E 180 - Contact between New Elsweyr and the Tiger Dragon Empire ceased. Tosh Raka lied to the Prince, saying that he would return with an even larger army and together they would conquer Tamriel. In reality, Tosh Raka planned to invade New Elsweyr as well as the rest of Tamriel.
  • 6E 300 - By this point the new nations of Tamriel had formed. The Ahrkmer societies in Valenwood and the Summerset Isle united into the nation of Arkhmereth. The Eight Divines became the state religion of Arkhmereth. The nations of Skyrim, Hammerfell, Cyrodiil and Morrowind would be united under the Pact of the Mythic Dawn, a loose alliance between the four nations.

    Unlabelled Geopolitical Map of Tamriel, in year 6E 325.

  • 6E 340 - By this point, Tamriellic society, especially in the PMD would be extremely rural after the abolishment of technology.

  • 6E 406 - Ghrovnak Dobwarn dies at the age of 461. Certain regions in the Pact saw this as cue to leave, seeing that the death of Ghrovnak would cause chaos among the Council and across Tamriel.

The Dwemer of Cyrodumz are shortly after considered Cyrodwemer, Heartland Deep Elves.
  • 6E 476 - Slaying the former champion of Malacath, Athanac Rourken takes Volendrung, and using tonal architecture he reclaims the hammer for himself and Clan Rourken, making it no longer tied to Malacath or any other daedric prince. Athanac proclaimed to his people, while holding the hammer up high in one hand, that the folk of Volenfell were more than Dwemer, but rather Volenmer: People of the Hammer.

Dudrak Nherzhurk shortly after declares war on Cyrodumz, believing that Mehrunes Dagon's power would lead Gilmereth to victory. The rest of the Three Nations Pact would come to Cyrodumz' aid, and this three-way war would be known as the War of Extremist Aggression to the Three Nations Pact.
  • 6E 573 - Volenfell's armies besiege and capture Markarth, causing the morale of Gilmereth to dwindle. The city of Rihad is captured by Cyrodumz' forces.

  • 6E 575 - Rebellions across Gilmereth occur as the population loses their faith in Mehrunes Dagon. Dudrak Nherzhurk is killed by rebel assassins, and Rourken's armies easily begin capturing Gilmereth.
  • 6E 576 - The rebels in Gilmereth seize control of the country, excluding the Reach and former Haafingar which were both under occupation of Volenfell. With the northern front closed, Volenfell sends its armies southwards to the border with Cyrodumz. Even with the extra armies, Volenfell still finds themselves outnumbered as Arkhmeri and Resdayn soldiers accompany Cyrodumz.
  • 6E 577 - Athanac's armies retreat for a final battle at the capital, also named Volenfell, located in the eastern Alik'r Desert. The city is destroyed by the forces of the Three Nations Pact, and Athanac is killed in battle. The Treaty of Cyrodzel takes place, determining the fate of Gilmereth and Volenfell. The Arkhmeri kingdom of Angthnchard is re-established, Clan Rourken is replaced with Clan Gragarn, and Clan Kragen takes the parts of Western Gilmereth that were occupied by Volenfell.

Eighth Era

  • 8E 2 - Tamriel is divided into 6 provines: Lesser Tamriel (Cyrodiil and Skyrim), Western Tamriel (High Rock, Hammerfell and the Reach), Northeastern Tamriel (Morrowind), Southeastern Tamriel (Black Marsh and Blackwood), South Tamriel (Valenwood, Elsweyr and Gold Coast) and the Isles (Summerset Isles).
  • 8E 30 - With plans of expanding Cyrodzel into a megacity, Azharn reshapes Cyrodumz, draining Lake Rumare. A great dam is built at the Upper Niben, to allow Bravil and Leyawiin to retain their ports.
  • 8E 65 - Worship of opposing religions are almost entirely wiped out.
  • 8E 112 - The first firearm is invented, though when it came to the law enforcers of the Empire the bow remained the main ranged weapon.

  • 8E 337 - Damakond Arrakh, an Arkhmer, invents the steam engine.
  • 8E 345 - Damakond's cousin, Arkhvite, builds a mill in which the whole process is carried out by a steam engine. Over the next few decades industrialisation spreads across Tamriel, and unlike the Dwemer it came at a slow pace.

Decadely "checkups" are recommended for citizens, in which a "restoration" spell is cast on them, ironically promising them an elongated life. While only about 70% of the population attend their checkups, the offspring of them would also be reduced.
  • 8E 659 - The Empire creates two new provinces, the Western Frontier and Eastern Frontier. The Western Fronter contains the coast of Hammerfell and High Rock, and the Eastern Frontier contains the coast of Morrowind and Black Marsh. Azharn claims that the Empire had simultaneously been attacked by the bloodthirsty men of Yokuda from the West and the barbaric monkeyfolk of Akavir from the East. Both frontiers become battlefields in which the able men of the Empire are sent to die. No foot soldiers ever attack the frontiers, however bland, grey "flying machines" soar above the skyline, bombarding the cities and forts. Fortifications are constantly built and destroyed on the battlefield, while soldiers are told that the enemy will land their warriors on Tamriellic soil any second.
  • 8E 700 - By this point the average lifespan for the lower class citizens was 40-50. The elven races, excluding those of noble blood, have their most defining quality of long lifespans taken away from them.

  • 8E 1276 - The present year for Pax Pumilus.
  • 8E 1281 - Alduin, Eater of Worlds, returns after 3000 years. This time, there would be no Dragonborn to stop him. While Azharn assures his subjects that Alduin is no match for him, he knows deep down that the counterpart to the Dawn Era had begun: The Dusk Era. This year

Dusk Era

  • Alduin returns to the Aurbis. He annihilates villages and wipes out nations.
  • Akatosh, weakened after centuries without worship, can no longer hold the barrier between Mundus and Oblivion. Mehrunes Dagon and Molag Bol start invasions of Tamriel.
