With a perfect year-round climate, rich soil, and a flower (the ilm) with remarkable medicinal properties, the Ilmar knew nothing of war, greed, or clothing. The impassable Ukko Mountains to the north, and the dense Wildwood jungle to the south, kept Ilmarinen hidden from invaders for ten thousand years. In 1026 AGM, this primeval paradise turned to ruin after a shift in climate delivered devastating drought and an invading bogren host from the Dark Hemisphere, forcing its natives to migrate to more hospitable lands. Ilmarinen is home to Xandr and Thelana, the heroes of Ages of Aenya.
