A publication of the Alvare Institute
Welcome to the first online publication of the Lendosan Historical Institute, a branch of the Alvare Institute, being A Concise History of Longerath and Smalik. This document attempts to summarize the lengthy history of the two continents of Longerath and Smalik in a single document, and provide clear and insightful analysis of important events in this region's past.
This is not so much a work of the Lendosan Historical Institute as it is a collection of many people's work. This document would not have been possible without the invaluable contribution of our colleagues all over Longerath and Smalik. We are particularly indebted to our friends in Neoliliana for their original timeline that put the major events of this region's greatest state, the Liliani Empire, into context.
However, that said, we must warn readers that it is possible that errors have appeared in this document, either due to errors during the digitization of the document or in the document itself. Thus, this document should not be considered completly authoritative.
