|Alias||Age of Creation, Primordial Era
|Period||0 DE - 8777 DE
The Dawn Era spans the period 0 DE to 8777 DE. This era was the Age of Creation, when worlds and lifeforms outside of Chaos were being forged by the Creationists. To do this, they siphoned-off the raw materials and entropic energies from the heart of the universe, creating worlds and all the stuff that goes in them. When the Primordial Lords learned of these happening, a great war ensued. For much of this era the Dawn War raged between the Nawirrûs Covenant and the Primordials.
Some of the historical evidence of this time comes from the Scrolls of Dawn and the Hirstyr Signir.
