The Legendary 12
Age of Spring
The Age of Spring is the current age in Othyr and the Twelfth Age in recorded history. It was named Spring by one of the Oracles currently in the employ of the Mage’s Sanctum. It was named after the multitude of positive predictions by Oracles in the few years before the end of the Age of Fire. A fragment from the prediction of the namer of the Age in particular stated, ”...And in the twentieth year of the twelfth age, the winter of the land will thaw as if from spring, and discontent will fade with the blossom of a new era…” This and the generally good outlook of the new Age led the Oracles to agree on the Age of Spring. This, of course, was before the unexpected death of King Abbas, which none of the Oracles has predicted. After this event, some have claimed the name of the Spring Age as ironic, and representing a truly awful age.
