Rise of the Fallen
The Third Age or era, also referred to as the Present Age, the Age of Enlightenment, or simply the common era, is the modern age. It is thought to have lasted some 5,000 or 6,000 years thus far, as bronze has been replaced by iron and steel, magic and technology have advanced, and the old history swept away. It is this era that most folk are aware of, and even some common folk might know little snippets of history throughout this period. It is at the start of this age that many of the current political boundaries began to emerge.
