Interesting world map, much like on Earth you'd probably see civilisations becoming shaped by the geography of their respective areas especially when you start to account for resources that are most likely to be found in certain regions. The various Hatar Seas north of much of the civilisation you've placed so far are probably going to be the home of most of the wealth for some time much akin to the Mediterranean in OTL, this will especially be the case around the Mediterranean climate Pelasian and Thalmedic seas (i dont know if there is a name for them as collectively they are basically a Tellarus equivalent of the great lakes when you add the Scyllic and Nuragian seas). The Katal Rift creates a very interesting geopolitical issue however in that whoever controls the end segment of said rift for what looks like it will be quite some time will determine who is even allowed to access those seas from the Katal Sea as most likely the end point of the rift will become some kind of Constantinople style city, except with boats unloading on one side and loading onto a new boat on the other (that rift is also 100% going to become a suez canal at some point). The result being that 'Persian' style empire will probably be stupid wealthy for quite a while until the global GDP centre shifts north and east towards the mouth of the Nuragian sea and the Tavaric Ocean, which it will because eventually the various Rhodin civilisations will work out that if they follow the Ashufe Islands they come across an entire other continent to exploit and trade with which will make the Bay of Fornesta on the east side of the Tavaric and Hybras on the west side major centres of trade. Once Talamor is discovered too you'll begin to see a steady decline of the Katal Rift's economic and geopolitical value. While it will remain important for trade with the various civilisations in the Sea of Katal it's importance for trade on the world stage will decline proportionally just as it did when they discovered America in OTL. The discovery of Talamor however will happen much earlier than the equivalent discovery of the Americas on earth (by europe anyway) as the Ashufe Islands provides a nice trail of breadcrumbs to the continent, some viking style bloke or trader will eventually try his luck at crossing before heading along the coast of the Sea of Theas - even if that one gives up due to there only being desert for much of the coast eventually someone will find the more valuable Cape Tatso.
They're pretty much just ancient Egypt for now, for the beginning of history most things are gonna be kinda simple lol. My goal for now is to make basic outline of history and flesh it out more when I think of things to add to it. If you can think of any Egyptian-sounding names for Pharaoh and Gods/Goddesses, shoot them my way. Same for the other cultures/civilizationsTymria.
Cool!!!c.1250 AF: Wooly Mammoths are critically endangered in northern Sibirica.
c.1280 AF: Kyngir's empire falls when invaders from Esirta attack and it's last dynasty is wiped out.
c.1300 AF: Rasan society begins to weaken and decline. Migrations force people from the north to settle on the border of the Rasan.
c.1350 AF: Iron tools are introduced.
c. 1350 AF: The Nasenite people settle to the north of Neathuq, civilizing like their southern neighbors.

The NASENITE culture develops north of Neathuq, expanding the civilized world north and west. RASAN breaks up and shrinks as their society begins to destabilize. KYNGIR has completely collapsed, with many independent Katalic and Miscayan city-states, predominantly SUTARBA, filling the space of the old empire. The MUKANIAN period begins in the Pelasian peninsula when the adopt many ideas from nearby Knoas. TYMRIA takes control of many nearby desert oases, expanding greatly. People on SCYLL also learn much from Knoas and Tymria, opening trade up in the central Thalmedic.
c.1400-1450 AF: Kadimar, a newer city in Miscaya, conquer a large empire, including most of Edad. The First Kadimaran Empire is formed.
c.1430 AF: Kadimar is the world's biggest city.
c.1440 AF: The Beimeng people conquer Chuxia and begin to expand the nation. Their dynasty takes control of Serica.
c.1470 AF: People from the north invade the Rasan civilization, destroying city after city. social order breaks down in Rasan.
c.1500 AF: Huge volcanic eruption in Pellasia, recorded by the Knoasic civilization.
c.1520 AF: Rasan completely collapses from migrations and invasion. The Bronze age begins in Serica.
c.1570 AF: Tymria is invaded by Uhaakin and Katalic peoples, dividing the nation in two. Katalians control Lower Tymria, while natives keep the Upper part.

KADIMAR becomes the dominant city in lower Miscaya, opposed by Sutarba and the restored Urubaran Kingdom. In Ahura, NASEN reaches Lake Nysa. TYMRIA is broken in two by invasions from the east, and NURIANS flourish on the island of Nura. The BEIMENG establish a dynasty in Chuxia that conquers most of the Central Serican Plain, the largest empire in the world at the time. Rasan completely collapses from invasion and disorder.
Apologies if this is a dumb question, but do you have a large-scale map of any style that isn't covered in names, for personal use (if that's alright by you)?Update tomorrow or the day after. It'll be years 1580 to 2020 AF, if anyone has questions in the meantime feel free to ask.
