1852AC, 169 KoS (Micah’s KoS 2, 2015)
“It is late Phoenix, 1852AC, KoS 169, and it is with a heavy heart that I am compelled to write the telling of the Kingdom’s Last days, and its 4.5 Billion population (4,500,000).
In mid Aelmont, 1852AC, KoS 169; the Legion of Darkness began its invasion of our world. At first it was a trickle of portals opening randomly around the realm. The Kingdom was caught completely off guard.
By Mishamont, the number of portals opening increased. There was wide spread panic as the trickle became a stream. A stream that could have been dammed up if the Legions guarding the Orc reservation had been at their homes. Commoners rose up to fight the ominous evil, and for a brief moment I thought we had a chance. I figured the planetary population at this time to be at 93%.
By Bran, we could no longer track the number of portals, our communications were sporadic. Word spread that people began to flee what was left of their lands and began to link up with others to continue the fight. The planetary population as near as I can figure it was at 64%.
To my knowledge during the month of Corij all major organized resistance had cease, but many small groups still conducted guerrilla warfare against the Legion. At this time the planetary population was at 30%. Some people began to seek refuge, while most began long migrations in the hope of finding a safe haven. Of course those that chose to migrate headed to Ansalon. They believed that Ansalon being the home of the Kingdom of Stars would be the safest place.
However by Hiddumont, all notable resistance was gone, merely single powerful heroes nibbled at the heels of the Legion. I believe the planetary population to be at 9%. This means that Ansalon alone is now soaked with the blood of over 1 billion people. I do not believe you can find a place in all of Ansalon that you are not able to see bodies strung about. All the rivers run red, and the lakes team with the floating dead. During this month I received word that Daltigoth had fallen, there has been no sightings of the Emperor. I would mark the 3rd Shinarai of Hiddumont, 1853AC, KoS 170, as the death of Rydendow the 3rd, age 117, he has no successor.
It is now late in Phoenix, I am with the last group of survivors in Sanction, high in the Lords of Doom, mountains. There are fewer survivors than I had expected; there are only about 19,000 in all, huddled in this ancient stronghold. This brings us to loosely .4% of the 4.5 Billion people, which once inhabited this free and prosperous world. We are low on water and nearly out of food. I believe we will ether meet our end at the hands of the Legion or starve.
The following are written records, dreams given to me, or stories told by eye witnesses.” – Unnamed Historian
