Epoch of the Ancient Races

From Dragon Eye Atlas

In the oldest days of history, ancient races of which many have faded into obscurity, lived in harmony with the gods, the ancient magic and the world. The oldest gods are said to have walked among the elves, dwarves, centaurs, nymphs and other ancient races.

Elven legends go back to a hundred millenia, though they become sketchy and fragmented beyond half that distance and precise times are uncertain in this ancient past.
