Ancient Civilisations in Sternbergopolis
As humans developed over time, more complex civilisations throughout the continent became prominent, and contributed to life as we know it today. Read more below.
What is considered by many as the most ancient civilisations in Sternbergopolis originated from the evolution of the Brakubu people, one of the first peoples to exist in Sternbergopolis. The successors of the Brakubu are the Brakumaden, who lived near present-day Vadello. The Brakumaden had many primitive weapons, as well as a basic system of writing which cannot be translated to modern language. The Brakumaden first appeared to branch off from the Brakubu around 6500 BC, and then disappeared after what appears to be a large storm swept through causing floods and other damage, eventually leading to the dying out and migrating of the Brakumaden around 5000 BC.
The Idemedesan civilisation spread throughout the Northwest around 6000 BC. The Idemedesans had a written language and alphabet, which was used to keep records of hunts and weather patterns, as well as to serve as a law code for inhabitants. The first form of governments and religion began to form, beginning with a simple monarchy and religion based on the natural elements, notably water, fire, and sun. Because of the many minerals in the area, Idemedesa quickly became one of the wealthiest civilisations after the trade of goods began to appear around 4000 BC. The region strengthened and eventually had conquered other minor civilisations to form the Idemedesan Empire, which lasted until the mid-1300s AD.
The Lerkenshardniffs were among the largest, wealthiest, and most advanced cultures of its time. Basic systems of plumbing, irrigation, and roads made daily life in the ancient times with the Lerkenshardniffs in somewhat of a resemblance to modern life. A large amount of people that live in Sternbergopolis today are descendants of the Lerkenshardniffs and Idemedesans. Many laws established during these times still exist in modern government, and many ruins of the great temples, monuments and other buildings still exist today as National Historic Sites for tourists and others to visit and enjoy. The Lerkenshardniffs eventually evolved into one of the many thriving kingdoms present in the mid-1400s when explorers arrived on the East Coast.
Disruption by Explorers
While these ancient civilisations did not all last until the early 1400s, some did and many evolved into thriving kingdoms which stayed until that time. With the arrival of explorers in 1416, many were driven out of their homelands out of either fear or defeat by the explorers.
