Taladas was once a singular great continent known also as Hosk, however it was greatly changed by the Cataclysm as was Ansalon, though not to the same extent. Taladas experienced a single tremor, an event known in Taladas as the Great Destruction, which left the eastern third of the continent uninhabitable. Of the remaining land available, most civilization is concentrated in Southern Hosk.
Age of Dreams
The god Reorx attempts to teach the ways of the forge to Humans, after having already taught the Gnomoi. The humans however fail to learn from him, and in anger, the god curses them and alters the humans into the first Minoi.
The Grathanich (known in Ansalon as the Graygem of Gargath) is presented to Aldinanachru, First King of the gnomoi. The king orders the stone locked away, however it is later released by Milgas Kadwar and soars across the waters to Ansalon to wreak havoc.
Age of Despair
The Great Destruction strikes Taladas, with a single massive blow destroying the Aurim Empire and the Burning Sea rising to fill the void. The continent of Hosk is now split into several parts, with Northern Hosk and Southern Hosk forming the western half and the Tiderun Strait running between them. The eastern half is comprised of Old Aurim, The Black Forests, Rainward Isles and Neron. The southernmost part of the continent sinks, creating a huge swamp and forming the Blackwater Glade. Whilst the realm of Baltch splits from the mainland, and The Fisheries are formed when they also break away from the central southern mainland.
