In the outmost reaches of the universe, the deities fought for supremacy.
Each of them battled for aeons over control of their territories, that one
may triumph and possess all, uniting them into one. The founders of good,
evil, lawful, law, order and chaos, raged on in battle for longer than any
can ever imagine. Allegiances formed and folded repeatedly amongst all
but one of their groups. Denadlyr, Rakhashe and Virgil, the founders of
neutrality, joined forces with Stryth to form an unbreakable allegiance.
As the other deities feuded, they watched from their own world, with deep
disdain. The fighting stoked Stryth's rage and hate, and he increased in
zealous might as he saw more. Eventually, when he could bear to watch the
pathetic feud no longer, he cast himself into the epicentre of the combat.
Along with Denadlyr, Rakhashe and Virgil, almost all of the relentless,
but fatally tired out immortals were eradicated forever. The rest turned
and fled, and all but one were captured. Kallomar managing to convince
them to spare him, in return for his help. Several containers were crafted
imprison their power, and the quartet returned to the realm they had
left abandoned to finish the fighting. The containers were spread around
Serin, hidden deep within, and a barrier created around the lands by its
governors, to prevent the items from ever being removed from it.
As centuries of peace passed, the immortals added rich life to the domain.
They each conferred together on what should make up their world. Rakhashe
and Virgil toiled hard to create the rules of the land that would govern
the way everything behaved, the weather, the three moons, the passage of
time. The world was not created to be a simple place, but to be a precise
harmony. Denadlyr filled the lands with his own powers, interweaving his
powerful magic within the wind, the earth, and the water. He raised seas
and mountains, creating towns and wilderness. Stryth lent his expertise
to everything, keeping it all together, and adding untold amounts of
other critical updates. The amount of actions they did together is far
too numerous for a simple list. Eventually, when the harmony was exactly
right, the first races were introduced into Serin. Humans, elves, giants
and dwarves filled the lands, each with their own physical strengths and
weaknesses, and intellectual talents and pitfalls. The warrior, mage,
cleric and rogue guilds were founded to give them purpose. Unfortunately,
the help of Kallomar turned out to be his swarming the realms with vastly
powerful undead, an incredibly resilient perversion of nature. Rather
than kill him outright, Denadlyr decided instead to introduce a race of
his own, the most fragile but wise of races - the gnome - that they might
impart their wisdom somehow to allow Serin's own to defeat them, and the
dragons were created for the undead to fear, by Rakhashe.
