The Red Conquest
The period of the first Maarish invasions.
The Empire began with the Kar’iv Landing (Yearly Festival) when the Maar (ethnic group) invasion landed them on the northern continent and founded the great city of Umar (Named after their ruling god) This city stood proud on it red sandstone cliffs until the Deluge.
The Maar proceeded to subjugate and amalgamate many small kingdoms and city states while founding many great new cities. On the capture of Gethenomie (now Geth) the era of invasions and Empire of Maar ended and the Umarian Empire began, with the Year One on the Divine Calendar being the landing date of the Maarish.
