Second Imperial Age

The Second Imperial Age, ruled by House Xy.ō, was the shortest dynasty in Xi’an history, lasting over 1700 Xi’an years. During this time, Xi’an explorers discovered multiple star systems and expanded the borders of the Xi’an Empire (SaoXy'an). In II.914 (SEY 291), they achieved first contact with the Kr’thak culture and attempted to establish a trade relationship. After several decades of strained relations, the Spirit Wars (II.961 - II.1735 / SEY 351 - 1342) erupted, ravaging the latter half of the Age. The entirety of House Xy.ō was killed in a bombing incursion by the Kr’thak in II.1706 (SEY 1305). This began the Dark (II.1706 - II.1824 / SEY 1305 - 1457), an era in which the Xi’an Empire had no official Imperial House. Xi’an historians group the Dark in with the Second Imperial Age, formally ending it at the ascension of House Kr.ē to the imperial throne in II.1824 (SEY 1457).
