开创纪元The Founding Time -9000 DR ~ -3000 DR

  这个时代标志着所有类人生物文明的崛起,此时很多巨龙和巨人的统治早已被推翻,而笼罩在每个人头上的精灵战争的阴影也已消散。精灵王国 艾弗瑞斯卡王国Evereska永聚岛Evermeet 通过殖民的方式与其他国家一道慢慢成长,这其中包括人类王国 恩瑟帝国Unther柯拉珊帝国Coramshan,以及矮人王国 至高沙纳塔帝国High Shanatar奥格兰王国Oghrann
  This era signals the rise of all the humanoid civilizations, in a time when the many dragons and giants were long overthrown and the elf wars no longer loomed over everyone as a threat. the elf realms of Evereska and Evermeet grow by colonization along with other realms, from the human Unther and Coramshan to the dwarf realms of High Shanatar and Oghrann.

-9000 DR

  第五次皇冠战争Fifth Crown War 以 瓦珊家族Vyshaan 的彻底失败和 艾瑞凡达王国Aryvandaar 的瓦解而告终。大部分 至高森林High Forest 在很长一段时间内被遗弃,森林休养生息,这样神力就能够恢复它的和平。许多精灵开始迁回位于东部森林的 精灵王庭Elven Court凯尔特米尔王国Keltormir伊尔法兰王国Illefarn 是仅有的两个在皇冠战争之后完整幸存下来的精灵王国,其中后者与附庸王国 阿笛普王国Ardeep 合并,此时 桑塔·欧斯瑞尔王国Shantel Othreir 已经不复存在。
  The Fifth Crown War ends with the utter defeat of the Vyshaan and the dissolution of Aryvandaar. Much of the High Forest is abandoned for an age, leaving the forest open so the gods might restore its peace. Many elves begin migrating back to the Elven Court in the eastern forests. Keltormir and Illefarn emerge intact from the Crown Wars, and the latter realm joins with the vassal realm of Ardeep now that Shantel Othreir is no more.

  The drow of Telantiwar overwhelm the dwarves of Bhaerynden (present-day Great Rift [-8800]) and take their rift-city for their own. Surviving dwarves flee to other regions with one large group traveling to the Chultan peninsula before splintering into small tribal groupings, eventually becoming known as the wild dwarves.
  ——作为大逃亡的一部分,一个孤立的矮人分支定居在了与世隔绝的 诺弗拉隆山脉Novularond 之中,最终成为现在的 极地矮人arctic dwarves。
  As part of the great migration, one isolated branch of dwarves settles amid the isolated peaks of the Novularond, eventually becoming known as the arctic dwarves.
  ——衍兽之战Spawn Wars:沙纳塔帝国Shanatar 八个地底子王国之间爆发冲突,他们每一个都渴望将自己的疆域拓展到邻国境内。随着时间的流逝,冲突发展成了公开战争,成千上万的矮人互相征战。这一系列冲突被称作衍兽之战,因为矮人们在战争中广泛使用通过深土衍兽制造出来的克隆军团。
  Skirmishes break out between the eight subkingdoms of Shanatar as each fights to extend its borders at the expense of its neighbors. Over time, the skirmishes evolve into open warfare, pitting thousands of dwarves against one another. This series of conflicts is known as the Spawn Wars because the dwarves make extensive use of deepspawn-bred legions.

Spawn Wars

  今天,我杀死了我的孪生兄弟七次,也差点四次死在我的孪生兄弟手里。这到底是一场怎样的战争?我们一次又一次的复制自己,却只是为了把生命浪费在永无休止的自相残杀之中?我们中到底哪一个才寄托着我们共同父母的希望和梦想?如果我一次又一次的重生,那么世上到底有没有真正的死亡?难道我比我的孪生兄弟更有资格活下去吗?我们——这些衍生体——能否团结在一起,共同对抗那些整天躺在黄金王座上、只在命令我们自相残杀时才会兴奋不已的 原体First?除了一起躺在某个无名洞窟的地板上慢慢断气之外,我们是否还有其它手段把我们的生命源泉重新结合在一起?
  Today I slew my twin brothers seven times and nearly died four times at the hands of my twins. What kind of war is this that we replicate ourselves time and again, only to waste our own lives on axe blades dulled by endless internecine fighting? Which one of us represents the hopes and dreams of our shared parents? Is it truly death if I am reborn time and again? Am I more worthy of living or is my twin? Might we not ally ourselves—the Spawned—against the Firsts who recline on golden thrones, stirring themselves only to order us into fratricide? Could we not reunite our lifeblood in some way other than slowly expiring together on some nameless cavern floor?

  谁是我们的神?摩丁萨曼诸神Mordinsamman 既然允许手足兄弟以他们的名义自相残杀,那他们是否真的抛弃了我们?我害怕摩丁萨曼诸神因为这种自己制造的伤口而日渐虚弱,而蜘蛛很快就会在以前曾经容纳我们灵魂的空壳中编织它们的蛛网。
  Who are our gods? Have the Mordinsamman truly bandoned us, that they allow brother to slay brother in their name? I fear the Children of Moradin are growing weak through selfinflicted wounds, and soon the spiders will be spinning their webs in the hollow husks that once housed our souls.

  也许我们甚至已经不再是矮人了。当一件艺术品被复制,而那个复制品又被一次接一次 的复制,最后得到的只能是当初原版那拙劣可笑的滑稽仿制品。我害怕自己如今不过是一个黯淡无光的赝品,在一场荒谬可笑的自我陶醉中欣然自相残杀。我因斧而生,而我害怕——我早已因斧而亡。
  Perhaps we are no longer even dwarves. When a work of art is copied, and that copy is copied again and again, the results become gross parodies of the original. I fear that I am but a pale imitation of the First I once was, willingly killing myself in an absurd parody of narcissism. By the axe I live, and by the axe—I fear—I am already dead.

  伊马斯卡文明Imaskar civilization奈穆拉特Nemrut 时期。
  The Nemrut period of the Imaskar civilization.

-8350 DR

  伊马斯卡人部落Imaskari tribes 在一片肥沃辽阔的平原上定居,此地日后将会变成 落湮沙漠Raurin Desert
  Imaskari tribes settle a vast, fertile plain in the area that will later become the Raurin Desert.

-8350: 古代伊马斯卡帝国Ancient Imaskar


  在-8350 DR,一个分裂出来的古 都帕Durpari 小部落向东北方迁徙,并最终定居在了 落湮高原Raurin Plateau 肥沃富饶的盆地中。在 奈穆拉特时代Nemrut period(-8350 到 -7975,这个名字来自于此文明的第一位战争领主 奈穆拉特Nemrut),伊马斯卡人Imaskari 生活在由酋长和贵族战士统治的部落之中。在这个时期,农业的发展导致了人口迅猛增长,并在高原上建立起很多农庄。
  In -8350 DR, a splinter tribe of the ancient Durpari traveled northeast to settle in the fertile basin of the Raurin Plateau. During the Nemrut period (-8350 to --7975), named for the civilization's first warlord, the Imaskari lived in tribal communities ruled by chiefs and the warrior aristocracy. the spread of agriculture during this time led to a rising population and the founding of many farming villages on the plateau.

  以 皇都the Imperial City 伊诺普拉斯城Inupras 建成为标志(与此同时,乌雅廷Umyatin 获得了 奇械师之主Lord Artificer 和 皇帝emperor 的封号),早王朝时期Early Dynastic period(-7975到-6422)开始。这一时代的主要标志就是伊马斯卡精英们掌握了空间魔法。奇械师们利用这种知识创造出了一张错综复杂的传送门网络,允许他们能在瞬息之间跨越无限距离。这些永久性的双向传送门被建造成一圈圈的宏伟青铜尖塔,每座尖塔上都蚀刻着一种据说起源于 巴契兹魔鱼batrachi 的复杂符文图案。这些 布卡拉尖塔Bukhara Spire 允许整只军团从一片区域快速传送到另一片区域,从而使 伊马斯卡帝国Imaskar Empire 迅速扩张到了整个 费伦大陆Faerûn 东部。到了早王朝末期,帝国的边界已经从 大冰海Great Ice Sea 延伸到了 金水湾Golden Water,从 阿兰勃内海Alamber Sea 一直延伸到了 卡拉图大陆Kara-Tur卡塔克罗高原Katakoro Plateau
  The founding of the Imperial City of Inupras ushered in the Early Dynastic period (-7975 to -6422), when Umyatin assumed the title of lord artificer and emperor. This period was marked primarily by the Imaskari elite's mastery of transdimensional magic. the artificers used this knowledge to create a sprawling network of portals, which allowed them to cross vast distances in the blink of an eye. These permanent, two-way portals were constructed as circles of massive bronze spires, each etched with an intricate runic design said to be batrachi in origin. These Bukhara Spires allowed whole legions to pass swiftly from one domain to the next, precipitating the rapid expansion of the Imaskar Empire across eastern Faerûn. By the end of the Early Dynastic period, the empire's borders reached from the Great Ice Sea to the Golden Water, and from the Alamber Sea to the Katakoro Plateau in Kara-Tur.

  尚处于萌芽状态的帝国首先遭遇到的就是 泽克斯珊德林王国Zexthandrim 的狗头人部落,紧随其后的是 珊纳拉Shan Nala 的 克罗布寇鲁矮人korobokuru dwarve。后来的战争则包括征服 塔安根大草原Taangan steppe 上的游牧民族,吞并 卡谛Khati都帕Durpar乌尔迦斯Ulgarth。伊马斯卡的第一次军事失败发生在-6788 DR,当时帝国位于 艾利帕森林Aerilpar 的西部前哨遭到了 森林陆行龙forest landwyrm 的围攻;接下来在-6779DR,劳多城Raudor 发生了一场农民叛乱,不过很快就被镇压了下去。
  First to fall to the burgeoning empire were the kobold tribes of Zexthandrim, followed by the korobokuru dwarves of Shan Nala. Subsequent campaigns brought about the subjugation of the Taangan steppe peoples and the annexation of Khati, Durpar, and Ulgarth. Imaskar's first military defeat came in -6788 DR, when its western outpost in Aerilpar was besieged by forest landwyrms. A Raudor peasant rebellion followed in -6779, but the uprising was quickly put down.

  在-6422DR,皇都伊诺普拉斯城被横冲直撞的 鱿首巨魔krakentua 夷为平地,迫使伊马斯卡人放弃了他们的古老首都。这些恶魔是如何进入城市的无人知晓,但是后来普遍把原因归咎于 狄魔高根教派Cult of Demogorgon,因为鱿首巨魔首先是从城市中心的 胃隙神殿Temple of the Gaping Maw 中蜂拥而出的。接下来发生的无政府混乱状态把帝国分裂成了 上伊马斯卡王国Upper Imaskar下伊马斯卡Lower Imaskar 两部分,从而开始了 中王朝时期Middle Kingdoms period(-6422至-4370)。下伊马斯卡王国 的国民建立了 索隆城Solon 作为他们的新首都,执政的奇械师们对社会进行着严密控制。上伊马斯卡王国的权力中心是首都 萨寇斯城Thakos(即今日的 赛寇伊城Saikhoi),这座城市坐落在 卡塔克罗山脉Katakoro Mountains 之中。
  In -6422 DR, rampaging krakentua razed the Imperial City of Inupras, forcing the Imaskari to abandon their ancient capital. How the demon spirits entered the city is unknown, but popular opinion later placed the blame on the Cult of Demogorgon, since the krakentua first emerged from the Temple of the Gaping Maw in the city's center. the anarchy that followed split the empire into Upper and Lower Imaskar, thereby beginning the Middle Kingdoms period (–6422 to –4370). the natives of Lower Imaskar founded Solon as their new capital, and the ruling artificers maintained strict control there. the center of Upper Imaskar's power was the capital city of Thakos (present-day Saikhoi), which nestled within the Katakoro Mountains.

  在-4370DR,一场毁灭性的大瘟疫严重削弱了下伊马斯卡,开始了 沙特拉时代period of Shartra,-4370至-3920,这个词语在伊马斯卡语中就是“黑暗”的意思。生病的市民涌入遍布帝国各处的神殿,但是他们的牧师却对瘟疫束手无策。更为严重的是,一场神秘的枯萎病杀死了大部分庄稼,致使在瘟疫中幸存下来的少数人又面临着饥荒的威胁。这场被称为 静寂死亡Silent Death 的巨大冲击是灾难性的——即使在受影响最轻的地区也有15%~20%的人口死亡。仅仅是因为他们的敌人也同样虚弱且不幸,走投无路又孤立无援的下伊马斯卡王国国民才得以在接下来的十年中苟延残喘。在苦难和怨恨之中,下伊马斯卡人抛弃了他们的神祇,大部分牧师被杀死或被流放。尽管静寂死亡瘟疫确实也向北扩散到了今日被称为 无尽荒野Endless Wastes 的地区,但是上伊马斯卡却安然无恙且未受波及。
  In –4370 DR, a devastating plague wracked Lower Imaskar, beginning the period of Shartra (–4370 to –3920), which means darkness in the Imaskari tongue. Ailing citizens flocked to temples throughout the empire, but their priests could not cure the plague. Even more mysteriously, a blight killed most of the empire's crops, bringing famine to the few who had survived the plague. the impact of this so-called Silent Death was catastrophic—even in the most lightly affected areas, fifteen to twenty percent of the population died. Impoverished and isolated, Lower Imaskar survived the following decade only because of the weaknesses and misfortunes of its enemies. In their bitterness, its people turned against their gods, and most priests were slain or driven into exile. Though the Silent Death did spread north into the region known today as the Endless Wastes, Upper Imaskar remained safe and untouched.

  因为人口剧减且重建艰难,奇械师之主寇坦Lord Artificer Khotan 下令建造了两座新的布卡拉尖塔,这两座孪生传送门通向另一个其原住民不能使用奥艺的世界。在接下来的四个世纪中,伊马斯卡人从这个世界绑架了数万名居民,并把他们带回 费伦大陆Faerûn 充作奴隶。大量奴隶劳工的流入恢复了下伊马斯卡的生产力和社会繁荣。最终,奴隶们开始与伊马斯卡人通婚,从而诞生了一个名为“穆兰人Mulan”的新种族。
  With his population devastated and desperate to rebuild, Lord Artificer Khotan commissioned the building of two new Bukhara Spires. These twin portals gave access to another world whose people had no command of the Art. During the next four centuries, the Imaskari abducted tens of thousands of humans from this world and brought them to Faerûn as slaves. This massive influx of slave labor restored productivity and prosperity to Lower Imaskar. Eventually, the slave population began to intermarry with the Imaskari, giving rise to the Mulan ethnicity.

  上伊马斯卡和下伊马斯卡最终在 奇械师之主奥曼诺德Lord Artificer Omanond 的强横实力下重新统一,重建的伊诺普拉斯城成为帝国的唯一首都,这标志着 后王朝Late period(-3920至-2488)的开始。在奥曼诺德的命令下,奇械师们创造了伊马斯卡密器Imaskarcana——七件永世保存帝国无限魔法知识的伟大神器。伊马斯卡的精英法师——他们中首屈一指的就是 玛德洛克Madryoch希拉瑟Hilather——也在这个时期达到了力量的顶峰。早在 耐色人Netherese “发现” 阴影位面Plane of Shadow 三千年前,“黑檀之焰”玛德洛克Madryoch the Ebon Flame 就已经忙于编纂这个位面的黑暗秘密。就是在这个位面,玛德洛克创造了 阴影之石Shadow Stone,并着手进行他推翻奥曼诺德和夺取伊马斯卡的阴谋。对于这个帝国来说幸运的是,年轻的天才希拉瑟在麦特斯的边境要塞中与玛德洛克对抗,并最终把这位阴影主宰束缚在了 禁锢位面Plane of Imprisonment 之中。
  The reunification of Lower and Upper Imaskar under the strong hand of Lord Artificer Omanond, and the restoration of Inupras as the sole capital, marked the start of the Late period (–3920 to –2488). Under orders from Omanond, artificers created the Imaskarcana—seven great artifacts in which the empire's immense magical lore was recorded for all eternity. the elite mages of Imaskar—foremost among them the archwizards Madryoch and Hilather—also rose to power during this period. Three millennia before the Netherese “discovered” the Plane of Shadow, Madryoch the Ebon Flame was busily cataloging its dark secrets. It was there that Madryoch crafted the Shadow Stone and set in motion his plan to overthrow Omanond and seize control of Imaskar. Fortunately for the empire, the young prodigy Hilather confronted Madryoch in the frontier fortress of Metos and ultimately trapped the shadow lord in the Plane of Imprisonment.

  在-2488 DR,伊马斯卡文明在极端的暴力冲突中走到了尽头。伊马斯卡人不知道的是,穆兰人的神祇最终听到了他们子民的祈祷。这些神祇绕过了伟大的位面障壁,派遣他们自己的强大化身被称为“显现体manifestation”穿越无尽虚空进入 托瑞尔星球Toril。当他们抵达 泰伊拉·珊之峰peaks of Teyla Shan(现在的 众神守望山脉Godswatch Mountains)的峰顶之后,这些神力存在迅速降临到 落湮高原Raurin Plateau,一路上建立了一支大军并煽动叛乱。在几个十日内,帝国的大部分主要城市都被洗劫一空。奇械师之主Lord Artificer Yuvaraj 和穆兰人神祇 荷鲁斯Horus 在皇都伊诺普拉斯的宫殿阶梯上进行了最终决战,而后者获得了胜利。
  The Imaskar civilization came to a violent end in –2488 DR. Unbeknownst to the Imaskari, the gods of the Mulan had finally heard their people's prayers. Bypassing the great planar seal, these gods sent powerful avatars (known as manifestations) of themselves through the empty void of space to Toril. Upon their arrival on the peaks of Teyla Shan (the Godswatch Mountains), these powers quickly descended into the Raurin Plateau, building an army and fomenting rebellion as they passed. Within tendays, most of the empire's major cities had been sacked. the final confrontation occurred on the palace steps of Inupras between Lord Artificer Yuvaraj and the Mulan god Horus, who emerged victorious.

-8170: 第一次蜘蛛战争The First Spider War

以下章节摘录自递交给一位卓尔精灵主母的口头报告。
  The following passage is an excerpt from a verbal report to a drow matron mother.

  “主母大人Matron,我带着自己的地精奴隶斥候第一个进入了矮人大厅。这些臭烘烘的矮小类人生物实际上和石头耳朵的矮人非常类似,而且被证明和大部分其他种族一样是可以牺牲的消耗品。感谢 奎娅瓦莎瑞斯Quarvalsharess(注2),我们偷偷进入了 阿拉托林王国Alatorin 的外围防御工事,小心地绕过了矮人防御者。我们已经清理 掉了第一道防御,并且看到在 黑暗入口Oloth Entrance 处有不到50名矮人——这对于我们的 萨格提林sargtlin(注1),只是小菜一碟。
  Matron, I was the first to enter the dwarven halls, along with my goln scout slaves. These short, smelly humanoids were actually much like the stone-eared dwarves and proved as expendable as most men. By the grace of the Quarvalsharess, Lolth, we stole into the outer fortifications of Alatorin, sneaking our way past the dwarven defenders. We had cleared the first ring of the defenses and saw fewer than fifty of the dwarves at the Oloth Entrance—an easy target for our drow sargtlins.
[译注1:Quarvalsharess—卓尔精灵语中的女神的仁慈;译注2:sargtlin—卓尔语意为战士。]

  “主母大人,我们唯一没有预料到的——并且地精奴隶们为此丢了性命——就是 穴居攫怪gricks。当我们悄悄潜入之时,几只由矮人训练出来的穴居攫怪(希望有一天我们能把它们收归己用)从墙内滑了出来。它们一口气杀死了我的地精斥候。幸运的是,奎娅瓦莎瑞斯的庇佑与我同在,我得以杀死这些野兽并继续向城市的精金大门前进,在那里与我们的密探会面。
  What we had not counted on matron, for which the goln paid with their lives, were the gricks. Several of them, trained by the dwarves (and mayhap something we should invest time into ourselves), slithered out of the walls as we snuck by. They slew my goln scouts in a breath. Fortunately, the blessings of the Quarvalsharess were with me. I was able to slay the beasts and continue onward to within sight of the city's adamantine gates and the meeting with our agent.

  “无论如何,主母大人,我相信您知道北方各王国已经在 塔克·沙纳特Taark Shanat 死后陷入自相残杀之中。我还了解到很多阿拉托林王国自己的战士已经拿起武器和一名年青王子一起参战,使得 塔克Taark 的王国实际上防卫空虚。这座城市如今处境不妙且防卫疏松,已经到了我们的军队可以发动入侵的时候了。他们大肆吹嘘的厅堂将会被我们粉碎并当作肥料堆,然后我们的地精奴隶就可以在上面种植酿酒用的 利罗蕈lilol fungi 了····
  At any rate, Matron, I am sure you know that the northern kingdoms have fallen to warring among themselves following Taark Shanat's death. I have also learned that many of Alatorin's own warriors have left to take up arms with one of the warring princelings, leaving Taark's kingdom virtually unguarded. Now impoverished and weak, the city is ripe for invasion by our forces. Its vaunted halls will crumble and serve as dung heaps in which our goln slaves can grow the lilol fungi for our wine. . .”

  The nation of Jhaamdath is born when human settlements north of the Chondalwood unit under the Dath Dynasty and its greatest psionic warrior, Jhaam. Jhaamdath eventually meets Coramshan near the Lake of Steam, and the two empires struggle for centuries over control of this area.

-5800:札姆达斯帝国的灵能政体Psiocracy of Jhaamdath


  在 谷地开垦历Dalereckoning 前六千年,一个人类战士部落在 奈克瑞玛斯王国Nikerymath的森林 和 内海Inner Sea 沿岸之间的翠绿沃土上开创出一个小王国。在战士国王 扎姆Jhaam 的领导下,这个小王国迅速与周边村庄爆发了一系列小冲突。这些冲突并不具有明显的帝制色彩——它们只不过是为了保护这个羽翼初丰的国家免遭攻击而已。尽管扎姆在自己的计划完成之前就已去世,但是他的后裔建立了伟大的城市 纳亚寇利斯城Naarkolyth,并把它作为 札姆达斯帝国Jhaamdath——这个以他的名字命名来向他致敬的国家——的首都。
  In the sixth millennium before Dalereckoning, a tribe of human warriors carved out a small realm in the verdant fields between the forest of Nikerymath and the shores of the Inner Sea. Led by the warrior-king Jhaam, this tiny kingdom soon mounted a series of minor wars against the neighboring villages. These conflicts were not overt acts of imperialism—they were simply intended to secure the fledgling realm from attack. Though Jhaam fell before his plan was complete, his successors established the great city of Naarkolyth as capital of Jhaamdath—the realm now named in his honor.

  在纳亚寇利斯城建成后的第二个十年,一种全新的天生心灵魔法开始在市民中流传,无论是农夫还是贵族全都概不例外。灵能psion——就像那些使用这种新无形奥艺的人所意识到的那样——相传是他们神祇 奥潘瑟Auppenser 的眷顾。这些心灵术士中首屈一指者就是伟大的心灵秘术师 拉斯泽克·银智Laszik Silvermind,他创造了一件被称为 心灵洞察宝石udoxias 的强大灵能神器。这件神器被固定在纳亚寇利斯城的中心,它赐予一定范围内的每个人一种无形奥艺的“能系discipline”。目睹到这种因为奥潘瑟信仰而实现的奇迹,很多 札姆达斯帝国Jhaamdath 居民开始涌入这座城市以求获得这种神秘的心灵魔法。
  In Naarkolyth's second decade, a new kind of innate mind magic began to spread among the citizenry, touching peasant and noble alike. The psions, as those who wielded this new Invisible Art came to be known, were said to be favored of Auppenser , their god. Senior among the psions was the great mystic Laszik Silvermind, who crafted a powerful psionic artifact known as the udoxias. Anchored at the center of Naarkolyth, the udoxias granted everyone within a certain range of it access to a discipline of the Invisible Art. Seeing the wonders already bestowed upon Auppenser's faithful, many citizens of the realm began to flock to the city to acquire this mysterious mind magic.

  在第二个十年将近结束的时候,札姆达斯帝国Jhaamdath 已经沿着浩瀚澎湃的 维洪河Vilhon River 南岸扩展了相当长的一段距离,并在从 巨龙海岸Dragon Coast阿坎纳山Akanal 之间维持着前哨基地。和它的邻居 米尔王国Mir 形成鲜明对比的是,札姆达斯帝国是高度集权的国家,其领导者牢牢控制着国内的每一个行政区。札姆达斯帝国社会严格组织成一套按照 灵能执政官psiarch、战士、抄写员和平民来划分的体系,而奥潘瑟信仰则被确定为国教。
  By the close of its second decade, Jhaamdath had stretched a considerable distance along the southern shore of the mighty Vilhon River, and it maintained outposts from the Dragon Coast to the Akanal. In contrast to its neighbor Mir, Jhaamdath was a highly centralized state whose leaders kept tight control of its provinces. Jhaamdath's society was rigidly organized into a caste system of psiarchs, soldiers, scribes, and commoners, and worship of Auppenser was established as the state religion.

  在第二个世纪初期时,札姆达斯帝国承受了一场文化变革。寡头政治被灵能政体——一个由强大的心灵术士和心灵武士所组成的统治实体,他们被称为 剑刃领主bladelord——取代。绝大多数札姆达斯帝国居民都是个体农民,他们对于商品和服务的需求完全可以通过本地产品来自给自足,不过包括奢侈品以及诸如金属、陶瓷和食品这样的基础日用品在内的远程贸易也相当发达。尽管贸易往来对于帝国的生存来说是必要的,但是商人阶层始终规模很小,而且其成员喜爱的既不是财富,也不是执政的剑刃领主的地位。
  At the dawn of its second century, Jhaamdath under-went a cultural transformation. The governing oligarchy was supplanted by a psiocracy—a ruling body of powerful psions and psychic warriors known as bladelords. The vast majority of Jhaamdathans were peasant farmers whose needs for goods and services were met by local producers, but considerable long-distance trade took place in both luxury goods and basic commodities such as metals, pottery, and foodstuffs. Although trade was essential to the empire's survival, its commercial classes remained small, and their members enjoyed neither the wealth nor the status of the ruling bladelords..

  在-5032 DR,札姆达斯帝国和米尔王国之间爆发了战争。札姆达斯帝国在公开交战中给了米尔军队致命一击,然后又在接下来的二十五年中发动了一场大规模反击,把米尔军队一路追杀回了 萨拉达斯城Saradush 在-5005 DR,札姆达斯帝国和如今已经统一在 柯拉珊帝国Coramshan 的米尔王国旗帜下缔结了一纸合约。这两个国家迅速放弃了对于 蒸汽湖Lake of Steam 的领土要求,并从这片区域撤回了他们的侨民。
  In –5032 DR, war broke out between Jhaamdath and Mir.Jhaamdath dealt Mir's army a crushing blow in the opening engagement of the conflict, then pressed a counterattack for the next twenty-five years, driving the Mir army all the way back to Saradush. In –5005 DR, Jhaamdath and Mir (now united under the banner of Coramshan) declared a truce. Both nations soon abandoned their claims to the Lake of Steam and withdrew their colonies from that region.

  由于南面和西面都被急速发展的柯拉珊帝国包围,札姆达斯帝国的领导者们于是开始向东扩张。在这里,札姆达斯帝国人遭遇了 图拉米人Turami(生活在阿坎纳山麓小丘中的本地部落猎人/采集者)。因为奥潘瑟的教义禁止蓄奴,所以札姆达斯帝国人只是简单的把图拉米人吸收进他们的社会,做为下层阶级的劳动者和农业工人。
  Boxed in by burgeoning Coramshan to the south and west, Jhaamdath's leaders began a push for expansion in the east. There the Jhaamdathans encountered the Turami—tribal hunter-gatherers indigenous to the foothills of the Akanal. Since the teachings of Auppenser forbade the taking of slaves, the Jhaamdathans simply subsumed the Turami into their society as an underclass of laborers and field hands.

  在接下来的数千年里,札姆达斯帝国的邻居们变得日益排外和好斗,而他们的国家也陷入停滞状态之中。这一阶段的典型标志也包括与周边邻国的零星冲突。札姆达斯帝国人最初对于南方的 半狮人wemics 并不关注,但是在-3218 DR他们学会了尊重这些生物以及他们的狩猎场,因为这些半狮人迅速消灭了一支穿越 金色平原Golden Plains 的札姆达斯帝国大军。
  In the millennia that followed, Jhaamdath's inhabitants became increasingly xenophobic and aggressive, and their nation sank into stagnation. This period also was marked by sporadic conflicts with neighboring realms. The Jhaamdathans initially held little regard for the wemics to the south, but they learned to respect these creatures and their hunting grounds in –3218 DR, when the wemics routed a major Jhaamdathan army as soon as it had crossed into the Golden Plains.

  在 伊马斯卡帝国Imaskar 于-2488 DR陨落之后,穆兰人Mulan 以激烈的暴力手段在图拉米人祖先的土地上取代了后者。在强大的 神王恩利尔God-King Enlil 的领导下,这些来自东方的征服者在 札姆达斯帝国的东部边界处建立了一个名为 恩瑟帝国Unther 的强大国家。在接下来的几个世纪中,札姆达斯帝国的国民付出了巨大代价来与恩瑟维持着一种脆弱的和平。札姆达斯帝国的东半部——总而言之比西部要贫穷、人口稀少——为了在国境处抵御组织良好的恩瑟军队而被课以重税。
  Following the fall of Imaskar in –2488 DR, the Mulan forcefully displaced the Turami from their ancestral lands. Led by the powerful God-King Enlil, these conquering warriors from the east established the mighty nation of Unther on Jhaamdath's eastern frontier. For centuries, a fragile peace with Unther was maintained at great cost to the citizens of Jhaamdath. The eastern half of the empire, altogether poorer and less populated than the west, was taxed at a high rate to pay for the armies needed to defend the frontier against the well-organized forces of Unther.

  在-1504 DR,恩瑟大军最终越过了阿坎纳山边境。在英雄贺拉斯Hlath的率领下,札姆达斯人保卫者们试图在 伊尼克斯瑞恩城Inixrien 处挡住恩瑟侵略者,但是在经过激烈抵抗之后他们失败了。在-1499 DR,札姆达斯帝国东部完全落入了恩瑟的控制之下,不过富有的帝国西部基本上未受波及。在-1069 DR,札姆达斯帝国军队发动了反击,把穆兰人驱逐出了札姆达斯帝国,并恢复了剑刃领主的统治。
  In –1504 DR, the armies of Unther at last pushed through the Akana frontier. Led by the hero Hlath, the Jhaamdathan defenders attempted to halt the Untheric invasion at Inixrien but were defeated after gallant resistance. By –1499 DR, eastern Jhaamdath was entirely under Unther's control. The wealthy western half of the empire survived more or less unscathed, and its armies counterat-tacked in –1069 DR, driving the Mulan out of Jhaamdath and restoring bladelord rule.

  在-276 DR,伟大的超念者 达瑞恩Dharien 在一场血腥政变中夺取了札姆达斯帝国的控制权,并自封成为独裁君主。为了推动札姆达斯帝国对于内海地区及周边土地的征服大业,达瑞恩皇帝Emperor Dharien 下令建造一支大型舰队。札姆达斯帝国并没有海战的传统,但是战士们迅速学会了其中技巧,新打造的舰队很快就在 普莱斯珀岛Prespur 海战中击沉了 西门城Westgate 海军的大部分舰船,赢得了他们的第一场胜利。帝国在海上的胜利同时也刺激了建造更多战船的热情,对于木材需求量的增长使得更多的伐木人进入了 奈克瑞玛斯王国Nikerymath。当精灵们进行反抗时,札姆达斯帝国派遣大军进入森林,对他们进行追杀屠戮。
  In –276 DR, the great metamind Dharien seized control of Jhaamdath in a bloody coup and declared himself tyrant. To facilitate Jhaamdath's conquest of the Inner Sea and its surrounding lands, Emperor Dharien commissioned the building of a great armada. Jhaamdath had no tradition of naval warfare, but its warriors learned quickly, and soon the newly built fleet had won its first victory by sinking the bulk of Westgate's navy at Prespur. The empire's success at sea fueled still more shipbuilding, and the increasing demand for lumber sent even more loggers into Nikerymath. When the elves resisted, Jhaamdath sent armies into the woods to hunt down and slaughter them.

  为了对这场暴行进行复仇,在-255 DR,四位 奈克瑞玛斯王国Nikerymath 的 精灵高等法师High Mages 在札姆达斯帝国海湾中制造了一场奔腾咆哮的滔天巨浪。连天水墙猛冲入剑之十二城,改变了这片区域的地形;今天,这里被称为 维洪海域Vilhon Reach
  Seeking vengeance for this atrocity, four High Mages of Nikerymath unleashed a gargantuan tidal wave that roared up Jhaamdath Bay in –255 DR. The wall of water smashed into the Twelve Cities of the Sword, reshaping the topography into the area known today as the Vilhon Reach.

A spriggan warped by Netherese slavers

  四月Tarsakh,15日:我讨厌活得象一只藏在发霉洞穴里的鼹鼠。可是没办法——我们的地底守卫已经死了,我们没有地方可去。
  I'm tired of living like a mole in a musty burrow. It doesn't matter anyway—our deepwardens are dead, and we've no place to go.
  高人The Talls 又来了。他们用噼啪作响的闪电杀死了 “掘洞者”格瑞陶姆Burrower Greatorm,因为她试图用自己的镐头保护我们。他们只是挥了挥手就把叔叔和阿姨抓走了。爸爸说我们必须努力向 加尔Garl 祈祷,我照做了,但是没有用。高人们不断回来把我们的族人抓走。我想加尔一定对我很生气,但是爸爸安慰我说不会的。哦,混蛋加尔!
  The Talls came again. They killed Burrower Greatorm with crackling light while she tried to protect us with her pickaxe. They took Aunt and Uncle just by waving their hands. Papa says we must pray hard to Garl, and I have, but it hasn't worked. The Talls keep coming back and taking people away. I think Garl is mad at me, but Papa says that cannot be. Well, sabruin Garl!
【译者注:sabruin=fuck XXX】

  四月Tarsakh,18日:我们已经在地底隧道中跑了好几天了。真抱歉我诅咒了加尔,但是我真的不知道自己还能做些什么。明年我就要成年了,但也许那一天永远不会来了。
  We have been running through the Deeptunnels for days. I am sorry I cursed Garl, but I don’t know what else to do. My coming of age was supposed to be next year, but it will probably never happen now.

  四月Tarsakh,21日:今天,我看到了叔叔阿姨和其他一些被抓走的人,但是他们看上去不像原来的自己了。他们的皮肤上长满了瘤子而且变成了黄灰色,他们的头发变成了红色,他们的手臂变得又长又瘦。当阿姨看到我的时候,她大声的咯咯笑着,开始越变越大——甚至比那些高人还要大;而叔叔凭空就变出了火焰。他们开始抓我们!他说 地底爬行者the Crawler Below 已经让高人们赐予了他新生。爸爸和我拼命逃跑,但是我想我们是唯一逃掉的族人了。爸爸受伤了,我变成了一个人。加尔,你必须帮帮我们。
  Today, I saw Aunt and Uncle and some others that had been taken, but they didn’t look much like themselves. Their skin had grown warts and turned sallow, their hair had turned red, and their arms had become long and gangly. Aunt cackled when she saw me and grew to the size of giant—even bigger than the Talls. Uncle created fires out of thin air, and they trapped people! He said the Crawler Below had inspired the Talls to make him brand new. Papa and I ran, but I think we were the only ones who escaped. Papa is hurt, Garl, and I am alone. You have to help.
