The Hyborian Age of Conan was set around 10,000 BC.[12][13] (12 thousand years)[14][15][16]

The Hyborian Age ended in approximately 8000 BC.[17]

Mutant and Inhuman development (13,000 BC)

Unknown to the Hyborian world, other civilizations made giant steps circa 13,000 BC:

  • A mutant civilization carbon-dated to be 15.000 years old existed in modern-day Isla des Demonas[20] That civilization, built by the demon-looking mutants known as Neyaphem and led by Azazel who called himself Satan, enslaved humanity. That civilization eventuallt ended when the Neyaphem were repelled to another dimension by the "Angels", the Cheyarafim, another early group of mutants.[21]
  • 13.000 years ago,[22][23] Randac was King of the Inhumans.[24] Randac found the Terrigen Mists. Subjecting himself to immersion in the Terrigen Mist and gained godlike powers.[25] through the activation of the latent mutant genes carried by all Inhumans.[26] A Kree Sentry examined Randac, and judged that the Kree's goals were reached.[27] The Terrigenesis concept provoked a schism in the Inhumans[25][28] Many groups of Inhumans departed Attilan at various dates (names and dates are known to Attilan's Inhumans, but without much consideration from them),[29] many Inhuman tribes left Attilan to create their own cities, or blend among humans.[25] A few of those "Lost Tribes" even departed to space. Fewer of those tribes returned to Earth later.[30]

After the Hyborian Age

The Olympian gods sought worshipers. While Neptune became the patron god of the Atlanteans (Homo mermanus), Zeus lay Mount Olympus near the Eternals' city of Olympia, thereby deciding that the Olympians would be worshiped by the people of the land now known as Greece.[34]
