The Pre-Istoryan period of Nikopharos is still shrouded in mystery, the oldest traces of human remains have been recovered around the Aresthimis cave complex. These remains include animals and human remains, stone tools as well as the best-persevered cases of cave painting. The oldest remains in the complex are dated to around 120 thousand years ago while the recent was merely 21 thousand years ago. The complex has seen differents level of usages during most of the Middle and Upper Palaeolithic period.

The most intriguing part of this era of Nikopharan history is related to the Varchii Civilisation. The Varchii civilization is named after its hallmark, an undecipherable script used for their isolated language. The Varchii's largest settlement seemed to be the city of Varkaphet while being located on the Island of Cydros was able to exercise influence and control over many cities. The Varchii seemed to have reached their height around the mid 3rd millennial BC. The downfall of the Varchii seems to match the abandonment of the city of Varkaphet around 20th century BC.

The Presence of Istoryan in Modern Nikopharos is dated to their earliest known settlement in the region, the Ruin of Pharium which was founded in 1985 BC while some still argue for the city's much older foundation. The Istoryan slowly spread across the rest of the coasts and the islands of the region before pushing deeper inland. The Istoryan by virtue of being foreigners to Nikopharos, had to fight off some of the surviving native tribes and cities of the region, leading to a certain level of animosity especially inland where the presence of this people was much higher. Many epics and myths are written about those battles against what the Istoryan considered "Barbarian" while in the truth, their level of sophistication sometimes rivalled or even surpassed that of the Istoryan migrants.

By 9th Century BC, Most of the territories of Nikopharos were "Istoryanized" through a mixture of inter-marriage and calculated cultural destruction.

The Presence of Istoryan in Modern Nikopharos is dated to their earliest known settlement in the region, the Ruin of Pharium which was founded in 1985 BC while some still argue for the city's much older foundation. The Istoryan slowly spread across the rest of the coasts and the islands of the region before pushing deeper inland. The Istoryan by virtue of being foreigners to Nikopharos, had to fight off some of the surviving native tribes and cities of the region, leading to a certain level of animosity especially inland where the presence of this people was much higher. Many epics and myths are written about these battles against what the Istoryan considered "Barbarian" while in the truth, their level of sophistication sometimes rivalled or even surpassed that of the Istoryan migrants.

A Digital Reconstruction of Pharium's Sofiátheon

This chaotic era saw the rise of Thirteen powerful cities in Nikopharos that enforced their will on the minors villages and towns that laid on their spheres of influence. Pharium's prestige and influence were known throughout the Istoryan world. Its festival "Panasófaina", as well as its "Sofiátheon", made it a religious centre of the region. Its impressive craftsmanship, especially in the domain of glass and jewellery, made its commercial power which was shored by its impressive navy. This allowed for Pharium to be in a prime position to extend its influence over the other contenders.

By 9th Century BC, most of the territories of Nikopharos were "Istoryanized" through a mixture of inter-marriage and calculated cultural destruction. The entire political landscape was divided into loose alliances and delicate balancing power between the thirteen cities. The later part of the Mythic Era was characterized by intermittent bouts of extensive fighting between the Thirteen, yet they all avoided to fully commit into an extensive war. The Thirteen Cordially agrees to keep the Minor city of Estalia independent as a neutral ground for them to negotiate. Estalia was also the place where the "Grand Games" are hosted every three years. The neutrality, the protection of the Thirteen as well as being the host city of the "Grand Games" made Estalia both prosperous and wealthy.

The End of the Mythic Era is marked by the empowerment of Lyssus Kyrosi as the Tyrant of Pharium by the surviving members of the council, endow him with full power to rule the city and lead its military in 754 BC. The event happens as a culmination of the "Kyrosian Conspiracy" which aimed at silencing the anti-war voice in Pharium as well as have the city commit to a war with its enemies chief among them, the City of Xiphia.
