what are some examples of stories where we read the narrative of a kind of apocalyptic event like this? why does this seem like such a rarity? we're talking about 350ish years, and we don't seem to get any of it? or do we? to be fair, i haven't read the series, but i have listened to a lot of things about WOT (i don't mind spoilers and shit) and i don't know that a narrative was ever told about this particular thing. would this require like a Silmarillion type of book?
