Not many people know about the story of Archeage or it's lore, so I thought I should translate it from Russian. I would post this on the offical site, but there is none atm. So I thought I should post it here.
Ipna's children became known as the Ipnu and they were very close to Thiol. Thiol taught them her powers and the secrets of the universe. The Ipnu in turn became very powerful and acted as custodians on behalf of Thiol. Over the centuries the Ipnu's population exploded, thus becoming a nation. Dealing with so many people, they decided on having a King rule their nation, and that King had a direct lineage to Ipna himself.
The Great War started when Antalrone and the Nachuaui attacked the Ipnu civilization. The "Great War" Period lasted for over a 1000 years to it's finial conclusion. The Ipnu were able to repel the mecca machines with their vast knowledge of magic. This would go on for years, till the Nachuaui finally gave up and decided to draw up a different plan. The Nachuaui decided to create three new slave races to help them in the war effort. They were the Dwarves, Warborn, and the Returned.
The Dwarves were a small tiny slave race of people who were put to work in the mines to create the machines needed for the war effort for the Nachuaui. Later near the end of the war the Dwarves rebelled and became a free nation, but they still kept their love of mining and creating machines, even to this day.
The Inpa created the Elves in the hopes of them becoming the new guardians of the world. During the time when the Inpu fled to the Ancient forest, the remaining Inpu taught them everything they knew. Even to this day the Elves regard the Inpu as gods and pledge to be the guardians of magic and nature and believe in mother goddess Thiol.
The Great War Part 3
It was during this stalemate time that Antalrone decided if he couldn't rule the world then nobody could. So he searched for his almighty god Nuil . Nuil answered his search by giving him a weapon, so dark and terrible that it would destroy everything in the world. In exchange Antalrone would give his soul to Nui. Antalrone agreed.
The Final Battle of the Great War
The battle was so fierce that the world almost collapse onto itself, but if that wasn't enough, the "Great Weapon" had been set and was about to blow. Thiol while battling Nui, threw the both of them on to the weapon when it blew. Their god bodies took the impact of the great weapon, and thus saved the world, but the explosion had created a huge creator. Both wounded and weakened from the impact, Thiol ordered the Elves to use the seal to suck all the souls into hell. Even if it meant that her own soul would be sucked as well due to her wounds. The Elves pulled the switch and Nui, Thiol, and all the Naschuaui souls were sucked into hell. Then the Elves put a seal on the gates so that none of them could ever return.

The Rose Age (The Second Age)
The 12 gathered at the great city of Delphinad, the capital city of the Circle Continent, where they discussed and formed the first expedition. The first expedition included:
Kyprosa Daeior - was actually the granddaughter of the king, her own father went mad, and her mother left her at her grandfathers doorstep. Her grandmother hated her and forced her to servitude for her family, to be raised in the kitchens. At night she would leave the castle and wonder in the woods to be with nature.
Kyprosa Daeior - She became the Gatekeeper of Hell and Angel of Contact, named Ranshisha.
Gene Evernigh - He became the Angel of Destruction, named Kyrios.
Aranzebia - She became the Angel of the Sea and Change, named Dahuta.
Tahyang Kahlzit - He became the Angel of the Wind.(I can't pronounce his korean name..lol)
Eanna Nimush - She became the Angel of Nui, She alone would carry Nui soul, and what a burden it would be. She would become the new Nui. Having both part Thiol's soul, and Nui's soul, she became the most powerful Angel of them all.
Ollo - He became the Angel of Iron Will, named Shatagon.
Inoch - He became the Angel of Death and of Sealed Doors, named Hajewa.
Orchidna - Orchidna was different, she actually liked being in hell and made friends with the Demons, she would return back into hell and with all those evil souls it made her crazy and she desired the old Nachuaui ways. So she became the fallen angel.
The other 4 became:
- The Angel of Art, Anil
After the final death of the mother goddess the world returned to a state of normalcy, and the new Angels became almost godlike in power and inherited dominion over the world. This marked the end of the Rose Era and brought us into a new Era. The Arche Age (The era of the Arche Angles).

ArcheAge- Age of the Arche Angles (The Third Age)
The Rise of Kyrios (Angel of Destruction)
In a deep depression the Angel Dahuta (Aranzebia) sealed herself in an abyssal island due to her love for her Godfather, Aranzeb,who didn't make it out of the collapse in time, in doing so it caused the sea to lay calm, quiet, and tranquil. Also somehow during the collapse the Angel of Iron Walls, Shatagon(Ollo) was confined for unknown reasons.
After their defeat in the war, the Salrium settled in Ostera, and they gave their continent a new name; "Harihara." Although the family held the crown in their old lands and in the city of Izuna, they failed to claim it among the Hariharan people. After repeated failure to expand further East, the Empress Paltavi formed a great empire in Hariharalaya. As the Hariharans tried to build their empire, they came in to conflict with the indigenous Ferre people, but the Ferre were much stronger and quicker. The Hariharans changed their strategy and began to settle in lands that were more wild and not inhabited by the Ferre.
The Empress Paltavi was responsible for the unification of the Hariharalaya empire, and its subsequent demise. Towards the end of her reign, it was discovered she worshipped the evil Nachuaui, and it was due to their cruel desires that war raged. It is also believed that the Osteran independence movement was a consequence of the discovery of her evil worship. Because she worshipped Nachuaui beliefs, she broke free from the rest of the cultures and started making mecca tech again. To this day the Hariharalaya Empire creates mecca tech, which upsets the elves and nunians a great deal, and thus the split into different factions.
If the Angel Dahuta awakens, both her and the Lost Continent will forever be cut away. Therefore, the Angel's Dahuta's servants want to control the world for their own. With gateways being formed thus creating Water Rifts. The King servants the Kraken and the Leviathan seek to control the world. The seaway between the Eastern and Western continents is calm. There are demon worshippers who are trying to resurrect the Angel Dahuta.
***So far there are only 3 types of Rifts in AA. Dark, Fire and Water. I am sure more will come later. (They just like rifts from Rift)
