The basic idea is having multiple ages of history covering Taerel's fictional history.
The project started when TheBurningPrincess was in a children's home named "Linden House". One of the carers was a man named James. TheBurningPrincess liked to talk to James about a "Vampire world", in time, James asked her to write down the lore for her vampire clans. This led her to start the first version of Taerel, the "Vampyre Clans Project. She went to DeviantArt forums to find users. and found a user named "TheSkull31" to help her. At that time, the wiki was hosted on Wikia, now known as FANDOM. She and TheSkull 31 wrote down the lore of the Vampyre clans. Later, she came up with the idea of adding pages for places, and people related to the Vampyre clans.
This second version of the Taerel project was named "Galas Malatar". The project's writers were unpaid volunteers at the time. Progress was slow. In about 2019, the Vampyres were renamed "kin'toni", all common nouns were lowercase and any "Elder Scrolls" kin'toni clan names were changed. The world was also renamed "Taerel. In 2020, TheBurningPrincess switched over from using volunteer writers to paid freelancers. Progress sped up to 50,000 to 100,000 words a month. At the latest count, on the 15th of June, 2023, the wiki stands at 2,369,308 words and 895 pages.
Taerel's goal is to build a fictional world for others to enjoy. There are links in the header to find the new pages, all pages, this page and a issue tracker in case you find some kind of error in Taerel's text.
