I just generated a 1,999-year world in Kobold Camp. For the first 163 years, the mighty beasts and living gods held sway over the world. The Age of Myths came to a close when Gatshi Boardfed the human adventurer defeated Ica Granitemolded the Horns of Squashing. These times of monsters were swiftly fading; the Age of Legends ended merely 24 years after it started, due to the goblin Telsta Workshark killing Elifa Islandlake the Sunny tufts, an icy giant with mandibles and a deadly spittle who lived in the Fair Hills. These two beasts were arbitrarily chosen as the ends of their eras; the roc Zusmob Budtaker the Famous Shin of Zeal was slain by the elven clothier, woodcrafter, and adventurer Afe Mothshaft, later slain by Nemen Gleamsweat the Primitive Muck. This many-headed monster was slain in 172 by the legendary elf Sethe Councelledmirthful the Wad of Length, who also slew hundreds of goblins, dozens of their warbeasts, and a few kobolds. The only other notable creature was a snowy, winged blob called Ngomustu Rocksumbral the Misty Ford, slain by the kobold Stolrorer Squeezethinned, a kobold adventurer who did no other notable deeds before her peaceful death. Regardless, by the dawn of the 188th year of the world, the mighty monsters were no more.
For many years, it was a golden age for the world. While there were wars, most were waged against kobolds, and they don't count. From 188 to 346, 158 years, this golden age lasted--nearly the age of the world, and longer tha many of it inhabitants. Then...well, it had started earlier, but by the 340s attacks by kobolds and their troll soldiers had weakened the humans enough that even they had to admt it.
The goblins were by far the most powerful race in the world.
Now, after over a millenium and a half of goblin domination, things are no longer the same. While the lands to the south of the Fair Hills--The Dune of Poems, The Barb of Limbs, and so on--are still the only unoccupied land, the land and the people in it are much different. There has been nothing built except tombs and fortresses built for almost two millenia now; the last fortress, Thriftygrowls, was built nearly a millenium ago and was lost to the elves five hundred years ago. While the indominable goblin empires war, the elves and humans have been squabbling, each race blaming the other for the wrongs of the world. The four human nations have been reduced to as many towns, plus two fortresses and several tombs; one has only a pair of tombs left under its control. The elves have several retreats among five nations, the goblins' might is unquantifiable, and several noecromancer towers dot the land.
Kobolds are doing surprisingly well, all things considered. They occupy several towns among three tribes and a forest retreat with another, and have a sense of camaraderie alien to the larger races.
This is Anenu as the second millenium dawns.
I have three questions.
One, are there any questions you have about the history of the world?
Two, are there any tools or special techniques you would suggest that would let me, say, determine how many of each race are alive (and ideally citizens of civ X)?
Three, do you think this sounds like a good place to start a community or succession kobold camp, and do you have any ideas?
