    Before the beginning..
    there was naught but the primal forces,
    begotten, not made.


    They thrived in the nothing that is the End. They shaped and become all that is known in the universe. They had no consciousness of their own, but as the universe expanded around them, some grew and began to ponder all of what they created around them. Those that pondered grew to have thought, and once one had developed consciousness, they could not be one with the primal forces any longer.
    They were created into a being.

    These were the creators who created… and the destroyers who destroyed..
    Because that is what they do. It was always in their nature.


    BC 50000~ BC 10 | The Beginning. Creations evolved. The Immortal Kings came into being. The birth of the first Gods, different realities, and the creation of life and death came. High Elves, Humans, Caparii, Dwarves, & Halflings, among others, first walk their worlds.

    BC 2 | Chaos struck the Immortal Grief’s creation, a planet turned to ash. She becomes its lone survivor and pleads to King Cherbert, a prominent Immortal, with her sad tale. A tale of life without the Corruptors or the Gods, where man ruled alone. Where they created their own gods in the absence of real ones. Where they seized power and land with armies in attempts to better themselves.

    Eventually, without the corruption to stop them, her people entered a golden age of technology, passed space exploration, instant teleportation, and floating homes.. Where they harnessed the power of stars and the ability to create life from nothing. Inevitably, through greed and ambition, they turned the power of stars upon each other and killed one another.

    They destroyed themselves with their knowledge.

    The King heard and heeded her words of wisdom and vowed that this would not happen to what they created. They would keep their planet in a constant state of fluctuation, between the dark ages and the renaissance. They would hinder technological advances, sciences and magic- but still allow for personal growth, creative expression and development.

    They would attempt this by allowing the people to develop to a stage just before industry began to take off and then hit them with plagues, famine and chaos if they developed too far. They allowed them to misunderstand the world and not question it too much.

    And so their story began.
