Following The Cataclysm and the Millennial Flood, the first people to recover were the Aphorans. Over ten thousand years the race of Aphorans spread across both continents of Ki’vun and onto her constellations of islands. The Aphorans developed agriculture, giving rise to an advanced civilization with astonishing knowledge of geometry and astronomy.
It is said that during this time the Aphorans had innate magical talents, much like the Faerie-folk, and lived close to nature. The Faerie-folk tell of a great war between the Aphorans and the earliest Faeries. This, they say, is when the Aphorans lost the ability to hear the trees.
