The era of legends
When Architects parted, Khalim went north: according Naash, he had to sacrifice himself to give life to a people. He arrived in a place he liked: a peaceful lagoon, lush sweetness of ice between the northern and southern desert. Khalim went on the central islands and settled there to meditate while contemplating her reflection in the water. Guided by inspiration, he shaped the loose soil from the shore and made four finely carved bowls. He filled them with water, arranged them around, settled back and began to speak. He spoke calmly for several days without ever interrupting. He described the world the beauty of spring, the virtues of strength and bravery, the aesthetics of life … The rhythm of his voice, water basins wrinkled discrete waves, over days, became quivering wrinkles. On the sixth day of this monologue, while Khalim voice was still raised, water basins seemed to boil. At dusk the seventh day, the architect gave his last word and fell to the ground, lifeless. Four feline forms born of water basins around him, they were the first four Khalimans and were named Khalid, Malikh, Sorhna and Suleman.
While his three brothers were building a dignified burial Architect off, Sorhna began to write down everything that had been said to them during these seven days. It fills the basins with water from the lagoon and read in their wrinkles Khalim echo the words; support fault, she wrote this testimony in his own skin, with only ink his own blood. So she asked for many days, hurrying because his eyesight was weakening throughout his intense efforts. Seven days later, the three males had completed the mausoleum and had it buried one we now called the Prophet; their sister had also finished his work every inch of his skin was calligraphy and she became blind.
The three brothers in turn mated with Sorhna, giving birth to three khalimanes lines. But during those hugs, Sorhna foretold the coming of a fourth line: occasionally be born blind females and Sorhna laid claim to his brothers khalimanes such as its own lineage. At each of his brothers, gave four Sorhna son and four daughters, who turn each had four son and four daughters. When the children came of them, Khalid, Malikh, Sorhna and Suleman returned to the mausoleum of the Prophet, in turn, die. On the death of Sorhna, his blind born great-granddaughter Khaliman was the first of his lineage: it was she who blasted the skin of his grandmother before she was buried and made the holy book, Kitab min ha Ab.
The era of conflict
Around the mausoleum was built a city: Shadukiam the Magnificent, the capital of the fledgling civilization that was organized around the four lines. The builders Suleman, exploring Malikh the surrounding land and developed Khalid letters, arts and sciences. Elected to Sorhna, in turn, advised their people: those Khalimanes had indeed perceived in contemplating their reflection in the water of the lagoon, they enjoyed strange powers of prescience. Those that now called oracles were organized in sorority to best use their gift to guide their people.
But over time, each line is focalisa on its interests and came to forget the merit of the other lines. Tensions appeared and quickly degenerated into a fratricidal war between three lines, the Sorhna preferring to retire rather than become an issue in this conflict: Shadukiam they left and took refuge in the village would become Hammarat.
Little is known about the War of the three lines, except that it has been particularly intense and brief: once peace returned, the Khalimans chose to destroy any written record of this war so that atrocities can find forgiveness forgotten. The war ended as suddenly as it had begun, following a meeting of leaders organized by the matriarch of the Sisterhood and a skillful Naashti who had managed to attract by trickery the three leaders in one place. In this same period also date the first contacts with the explorers of the Jade Triad: probably these first contacts with other peoples Mornea they were a valuable catalyst for peace, strengthening brotherhood between lines.
This war changed their deep conflict resolution design because Khalimans swore never to raise their weapons against each other and always find a solution in diplomacy. Minor lines were recognized, to honor those who, at the heart of the storm, had worked for peace. The company was reorganized on a different axis than the lineages of humans and timing was adopted: Cycle 111 was born the Republic Khaliman.
The era diplomats
The exchanges between the peoples of Mornea opened for Khalimans an era of prosperity for six centuries. Starting with Cycle 740, the harmonious atmosphere of harmony gradually gave way to resentment and envy. When the Jade Triad sent his armies sweep the Khalimans discovered with dismay that under trade and exploration pretext humans had patiently marked all the lands they coveted their neighbors: the terminals jin finally showed their true colors !
Furious at having been abused by the children of Orhöm the Khalimans heads together with their allies always, Naashtis, and decided to go to war to end the wave of conquest initiated by the Jade Triad: it was the alchemical war. The oracles then discovered with amazement the property alchemical stones, copiously used by humans, and the opportunities they offered their own mystical practices. The war soon took a turn for the worse: many humans were organized and benefited from alchemy. The Aurloks were peaceful and Naasthis in force defeats, finally disappeared, leaving only Khalimans human face. In 795, the matriarch of the Sisterhood, Fatiha Bint Sorhna then gave his people a mysterious prophecy, still puzzling today: at most, it is known that the content was “must unite all peoples not against humans but with them. “
While the Senate wondered how this strange implement Directive, the miracle occurred: the Triad suffers first setback when Aurloks brutally out of their apathy Gigage Gadusi, then a second when part of its alchemists seceded and founded the kingdom Avalon. The strength of the Triad crumbled and the secret of alchemy spread: the Khalimans then learned the secret of marine and oracles became alchemists: the oracles. This revolution led to the discovery of evocation, which raised Khalimans to throw into battle fearsome djinns. Sensing that the Triad would have to give up the Khalimans brought him to negotiate peace and refluxing his armies. In Cycle 814, the Treaty of Gigage Gadusi put an end to the war and alchemical materialized predicting Fatiha. In order for such a war never again, the Senate set up the body sheikhs with the task of arbitrating any conflict before it escalates and built the Concorde channel to promote trade between the peoples by of reciprocal trade, the nations of Mornea would gain more than the war could never bring them, while costing them less.
Then began a new era, in which the Republic Khaliman watched carefully on peace Mornea.
