New, radical Eberron Cosmology theory: its really just a smaller, distorted 'mirror' of the Great Wheel - Eberron itself is the Outlands, and all those 'spheres' revolving around it are just the planes themselves. What if Eberron lies inside some hitherto unknown plane/dimension and is that 'mirror realm'?

Maybe its even The Great Wheel's local version of the Feywild (which is kinda scary, because that would there should be a Shadow-Great wheel as well). Or rather, aybe its where those two planes should be in regards to the Outlands, but 'the Gods' banned those planes from overlapping with the Outlands, and instead we have this weird 'echo', like the dream of two great sleeping serpents...

This is what really happened to our lost civilizations LOL. They got transplanted.

Yeah, even their raid that enslaved the Mulan peoples was because of desperation with sickness. Hell, some of the original Mulan people may have even felt for the Imaskari for all we know and come to aid them, only to have it turned against them. The Imaskari may have not conquered and pulled the people over so much as tricked, blackmailed and threatened their families if they didn't comply. But later generations of Imaskari may not have been so bad.

Alavairthae, may your skill prevail

I recommend you to read the entry on High Imaskar in the 4e FRCG, and then make a comparison with what is said the SCAG, if you have access to both. I see the Shadovar as better than them, now...

Long ago, in the distant past, they fell into decay. The philosopher’s path... The river of glory... Even the saints resting in the darkness rise up without response and block the way...

Well, unless they had HUGE mobile portals that could 'scoop up' tons of people all together, as I said before, those groups of people had to have already all been moving together in a single direction, either running toward something, or fleeing something themselves. That implies war or disaster (and war IS a disaster).

Poor Imaskar... see what happens when you let too many refugees in.

{that was a joke folks, so please take it as one}
