Great Epochs: Age of MythAge of ChaosAge of Sigmar

The Age of Myth is one of the three Great Epochs of the Mortal Realms, one shrouded by legend and remembered in song and tale. It was a Golden Age when great alliances were formed, colossal cities founded and mighty works of magic constructed. It was succeeded by the Age of Chaos. It started when Sigmar started exploring the realms and ended with the Battle of Burning Skies and the dominion of chaos over the Realms.[1][14b]
