[13th Age] Ages & Icons: A Possibility


I've been contemplating a possibility that the number of Icons is equal to the Age they dwell within.

So, what if there was merely one Icon in the 1st Age or seven in the 7th Age and of course thirteen in the 13th age?

Following this line of thought I've mapped out how I think the Icons could have developed.
