Introduction

We are currently in the Third age of Primus, which, after a slightly fitful start began in IM 1000 following the events of the High Final Dawn in IM 999. The events of the Third Age are quite well documented. The Empire, recovering from a slight decline that befell it during the years leading to the madness, fall and eventual removal of Amora from the Throne of Glass and from that short, but dangerous period, when there was no Master of Primus before the coronation of Michael Stoneheart has not suffered anything like the Night of Levity and the re-empowered Imperial Scribes have been diligent in recording events, without the Imperial Bureaucracy censuring them for its own purposes. Of course, the supernatural nature of Primus is such that the past can itself be altered and such changes, whilst rare, are, according to Mercenaries, said to have happened
