A Gelfling town during the late Golden Age.

The Age of Harmony, also known as the Golden Age,[1] was Thra's second millennium, taking place after the Age of Innocence and before the Age of Division.

It was during this period that the Podlings first appeared and the Gelflings, under the tutelage of the Fallen urSkeks, learned to tame nature and advance technologically. They gradually stopped venerating Aughra in favor of the UrSkeks, whom they erroneously credited with having gifted them with culture and language. By the time of the Great Division, the Gelflings had managed to colonize much of Thra.[2]

Aughra, after having been gifted with an orrery, became entrenched in her studies of the stars, ignoring the events unfolding on Thra.[2]
