Ushaenor are the combined continental landmasses of North and South Ushaenor in the Western Hemisphere, being the second largest continent of the world of Aiers. The topography is dominated by the Taurnrod Cordillera, a long chain of mountains that run the length of the west coast. The flatter eastern side of Ushaenor is dominated by large river basins. Since Ushaenor extends from the northern to the southern hemisphere, the climate and ecology vary widely, from the arctic tundra of northern Unad and Murs, to the tropical rain forests in central and southern Ushaenor.
Elves first settled Ushaenor from Hieyoks between the 23.000 a.a.H (the Hake dark elves) and 19.000 a.a.H (Rossnes light elves, that will later become the High Elves. It is discussed if beast peoples and draaki had settled before or after the elves, but these paleolithic and neolithic migrations completed what is generally regarded as the settlement by the indigenous peoples of Ushaenor. Later during the Age of Invasions will arrive at northern Ushaenor Galaw high orc groups at the 120 b.a.H, and later, Ushaverican and Lataverican humans around the V and VI century since the apparition of humanity.
The voyages of High Elves during the Late Elfic Age and early Age of Invasions resulted in a more permanent contact with the Aelian, Hieyoker and Zarhuycan cultures, but as the high elven colonies and kingdoms of the east fell, such contact will be interrupted and become irregular until the First War of the Power. The later foundation of Ne'Sargos at the 2420 a.a.H will mean the beginning of the settlement of Aelian powers colonies and realms in northern Ushaenor. Mass migration from Aels will mean a significative increase of the human and kanov population in Ushaenor, with a shift of power from the old high elven Empire of Whide Axis to the Holy Sargonic Empire. Meanwhile, in the south the Caliphate of the Orange Sun of Blazakhov founded colonies. After The Cataclysm, the surface of Ushaenor will see severe changes and the raising of new independent nations.
USHAENOR: is one of the continents of the world of Aiers.
Settled in prehistory by Hakes and High elves, later that was where the elf wars began, and after the Hakes' defeat, from where the High elves and their Empire of Whide Axis tried to conquer the world, until the Apparition of Humanity and the Age of Invasions.
Later, humans migrated to the territory, but like in central and south Zarhuy, their dominance wasn't absolute (until colonists of Sargos arrived in Ushaenor).
Humans from Sargos would develop their own kingdom of Na'Sargos (New Sargos) in the east part of North Ushaenor. The elves of the Empire of Whide Axis would allow large numbers of humans to settle there as a result of the early losses of the human kingdoms during the First War of the Power. Many of those human refugees who arrived on Ushaenor would never leave and those of Sargos founded a de facto Sargos colony and which grew into a human kingdom.
Ushavericans were the descendants of humans who settled in South-eastern and central Ushaenor during the 6th Century a.a.H. They, and some human tribes who came before them would serve the elven kingdoms as a workforce and a defense force that would protect Ushaenor from future migrants, and settle some of the least attractive lands such as the jungles of Ushaenor. These humans were a very culturally and ethnically diverse lot, and the high elves would use these divisions against them to keep the humans from uniting in a meaningful way.
Golden High Elves (an ethnic part of Whide Axis) would retain control of the north-west of Ushaenor.
Silver High Elves (an ethnic part of Whide Axis) would retain control of the south-west of Ushaenor.
Other various subsidiary realms of the High Elves' Empire of Whide Axis would continue to rule in the central and eastern part of South Ushaenor. Chief among these would be the M'Adhai High Elves with a large, diverse kingdom in the center of Ushaenor. Ethnically, these lands would also include Darhake populations of various numbers.
