Notes: (Lanstiril, 2021-07-21)


  • The Zoraï meet the Karavan who spread the word of Jena, the mythology of the Dragon and the Prophecy. Contacts are rare with the Karavan who struggle to find the Zoraï in the impenetrable jungle.
  • The Zoraï are particularly discrete and live in tribes relatively close to each other in the depths of the jungle. They share their territory with the Gibbaï, in a surprising harmony.
  • The Kamis observe the Zoraï, quickly realizing that they are the most promising of the homins, but hesitate to contact them fearing to frighten them definitively.


  • The Zoraï begin to gather around a common philosophy suffused with nature veneration and mysticism. The Zoraï associate Jena with the creation of the world they already call Sphere.
  • They settled in numbers south of the Ti-ain river in an area of difficult access that they call Zoran.
  • Zoraï watchers observe Matis mektoub-riders slaughtering the Momos. Horrified, the Zoraï begin to think of a way to preserve their borders. Some people put forth the idea of a large wall, but given the extent of the task, the project is dropped.


  • A gigantic wildfire breaks out to the north-west. The smoke is visible from the northern edge of the jungle. Many Kamis take refuge in the jungle to regenerate after their fight against the fire. The contact becomes inevitable and the encounters multiply.
  • A tribal chief named Cho understands the desire of the Kamis to come closer to the homins for fighting threats to nature: the one recently observed in the Northwest Territories, but also a mysterious disease that has recently appeared and that affects fauna and flora indiscriminately. A very strong bond is created between Kamis and Zoraï, which leads to the foundation of the first cult dedicated to the Kamis, incarnations of the pure energy that created the Sphere. The first temples are built in the name of the Kamis, the largest being located in the City-Temple of Zoran. The Kamis create the mask of kinship for the Zoraï, as symbol of this link.
  • Cho becomes the first Zoraï dynast.


  • First contact with the Trykers on the west border of the jungle. The Zoraï first take them for children and show patience towards the merry newcomers. However, timid trade exchanges are thereafter undertaken between the two peoples.


  • After several unsuccessful attempts to divert the Zoraï from the Kamis, the Karavan impart them the secret of magnetism and electrostatism in order to bring them back into the light of Jena. Although they still assimilate Jena to the Supreme Kami, the Zoraï begin to argue over opposing visions of their beliefs, especially about the cult of Jena.


  • Infuriated by the adamant refusal of the Zoraïs to break up with the Kamis, the Karavan set up a punitive expedition against a village. The Kamis step in to discourage the Karavan and the two parties end up keeping their distance after a brief conflict. Following this violent episode, the Zoraï overwhelmingly choose the side of the Kamis. The cult of the Kamis develops more in the form of multiple religious orders but many grey areas remain and the name Jena is still widely used.
  • The Kamis begin to teach magic to the Zoraï, who are particularly attentive and become very able in this new exercise which perfectly fits their beliefs.


  • The exchanges have multiplied and villages have been founded to the north beyond the Ti-Ain river. The Zoraï are increasingly witnessing things that they dislike or hearing news that gradually lead them to withdrawal (especially the Fyros and Matis wishes of conquest). The elders begin to talk about the wall that has become possible and construction starts.


  • Death of Cho. Mon becomes the new dynast and takes the name of Cho to perpetuate kinship.

The Karavan take the opportunity to reaffirm the worship of Jena, and teach writing to Mon-Cho in exchange for his support. This one, seduced, accepts but is quickly brought back on the path of the Kamis by the Sages who adapt writing so that it becomes the reflection of the zoraï and kamist philosophy.

  • The Great Library of Zoran is founded.
  • In response, the Kamis begin to teach magic to the Matis and the Trykers.


  • The end of the construction of the Great Wall coincides with the growing interest in the magic of the Matis, who meet the Zoraï for the first time on this occasion.
  • Merchant trading posts are set up outside the Wall to allow commercial and cultural exchanges between Matis, Trykers and Zoraï to continue, while maintaining peace and harmony within.


  • Trade becomes flourishing and is now organized around the dappers invented by the Trykers.


  • Rumors of conflict between the Fyros (whom the Zoraï have yet never encountered) and the Matis about water supply are spread to Zoran by the merchants. The Zoraï do not pay attention to them for the moment.


  • The War of the Aqueduct breaks out between the Fyros-Trykers alliance on the one hand and the Matis on the other. The Zoraï try to stay aloof and start construction work to improve their defenses by adding watchtowers along their Great Wall.


  • Lin-cho becomes dynast.


  • The Fyros make a foray into the jungle in search of a way to bypass the southern Matis front. They attack the Matis trading posts along the Great Wall. The Zoraï, fearing an attack against them, counterattack. The Fyros are mistaken, thinking that the Zoraï are allies of the Matis, and then turn their gaze towards the south. Thanks to their firearms, they quickly manage to breach the Great Wall and rush into the jungle in the direction of Zoran that they besiege. The surrounding terrain is particularly craggy and labyrinthine, and the accesses to the city are protected by well defended ramparts. The siege lasts a few days, mainly using artillery which pounds over the Zoraï defenses, setting fire to the hit buildings. Fortunately the Fyros finally get tired and decide to give up and set out again to the north where lies their primary target.
  • The Great Library, which is already a century old, is utterly destroyed at the end of the siege. Thousands of volumes dealing mostly with the kamic worship but also other various subjects are lost forever.

Work is underway to strengthen the Great Wall. A new library is to be founded in Tai-Toon farther south, but the Sages wish to find another way to preserve knowledge and they organize a contest for this purpose.

  • Hari Daïsha, a young Zoraï from Din-Tin, wins the contest by inventing the cube of amber.


  • The Great Wall is reinforced and henceforth closes all the borders of the jungle. The Zoraïs complete the construction of the Great Temple of Zoran which combines the knowledge taught by the Karavan and the Kamis. But the Temple is dedicated only to the Kamis who are more than ever an integral part of Zoraï society. The Karavan ask the Zoraï to modify the plans to celebrate the glory of Jena, but the Zoraï do not understand. For them Jena is the Supreme Kami, creator of the Sphere of the world.



  • The Fyros take Karavia. A period of calm ensues and trade resumes. The first exchanges between Fyros and Zoraïs are timid. The Fyros, having learned their mistake of the past, redoubled in diplomacy.


  • Min-Cho becomes dynast.



  • The Fire of Coriolis spreads its fury and plumes of smoke far to the northwest. The Water Route is cut and Aniro III takes advantage of it to invade Trykoth and take over Karavia. All commercial exchanges cease and the Zoraï who anticipated the events barricaded themselves behind their Great Wall. They now refuse to open their doors to anyone even to the Trykers who desperately seek asylum, fleeing the Matis.




  • Trykers rush in terror at the gates of the jungle begging for assistance and asylum. Monsters are on their heels. The Zoraï understand nothing of that and as a precaution keep their doors closed. This will also be the cause their own doom in the wake of the Great Swarming of kitins.


  • Resurfacing from the Prime Roots shelters after the Karavan have assured that kitins are no longer a threat.
  • The great Sage Fung-Tun tells Hoï-Cho, the Zoraï chief, the path to a land of strong magnetism where the capital Zora is erected in memory of all those who died in Zoran, the devastated capital of the Old Lands. Zora, without those walls that cruelly stood in the way of the Zoraï when they tried to escape the kitins' mandibles in Zoran, is built in the hollows of the Bark, thus allowing a better defense in case of a kitin attack.
  • The Karavan seal the entrances to the Prime Roots and prohibit their opening. Taking advantage of the tumult, they try to impose their teachings.
  • Renewal of the sacred communion with the Kamis. Hoï-Cho institutes a week of fasting in memory of those who died in the Old Lands and, too, in commemoration of the years spent in the Prime Roots which deprived them of the enlightenment of the Kamis. Since then, the Remembrance Week, during which the Zoraï fast between sunrise and sunset, opens six days before each winter solstice.
