A brief history of the early peoples in order of arrival are: Pre-first age (The Ancien). The Ancien were believed to have sprouted from the earth, and only the oldest families claim their lineages to the Ancien. For most of first age the Wildmen from the east occupied much of eastern Gemynd, but eventually interbred, and wove their way into the population and faded as a major power. Some of their language and customs can still be seen. Last, the Mendian from west were thought to either be Proto-men or Ancien. They still occupy the west as a stubborn people, locked in a thousand year war. Two great houses Mende and Winter's Bind, broken apart by Ella of Winter's bind, have yet to reconcile their differences.
