1480 Settlers go to Oraya.
1483 Hon Eel contests with Mother of Horses to wed Yelm.
1486 Mother of Horses weds Golden Bow, Noonlight born. Pentans retreat.
1503 Pentans storm Oraya.
1505 Lunar Provincial army destroyed in Jarst.
1506 Nights of Horror - nearly everyone destroyed! New traditions started.
        Boshan cleared of "Two headed monster", possibly Pentans by Imolo
Wen.(not sure on a date, 150 years after they appeared. speculate 1352?)

I think a Sunspear type spell would have been used for the Skyburn. I do not
know where the nomads would have got it from. Certainly Sheng seems powerful
enough to wield a 'blast from the sky' type magic.
