The Dark Age

The Beginning and the Chaos 10,000+ years P.D.

Many scholars disagree about Pre-Creation times. The plainsmen of the Homelunds say that there was The Great Nothing, a spanse completely devoid. The elves believe in an eternal night where everything was intertwined together into a swirling chaotic sphere. Still, the dragonkin adhere to the fact that before everything there was the Night Serpent spinning dreamlands in a waking sleep.

In any case, all theories hold to one fact; before Creation there was something happening. Sages converge whole-heartedly that such a strong occurence in multiple cultures is more than coincidence.

 

The Age of the Dreamlands

Time of the Shepardess 10,000 years P.D.

The actual story of Creation is quite simple and even seem sophmoric in its simplicity. During the time of the Dreamlands, a period of time when the Lands of Bethel were not formed, there upon a great grassy field lived a Shepardess. The life of a shepardess bored her to no end, and in such encouraged a rather active imagination to bear. During the day, the Shepardess would imagine being in strange lands that she had never encountered. And during the night, she would dream of wonderful creatures and nightmarish beings. Little did she know that her fantasy world was in all actuality coming into fruitation...

It would seem that the reality that the Shepardess lived in was slowly getting transformed into the wild imaginings that she dreamt of.

 

-The Beginning of Man-

A notible period of time, this era heralded the first concept of Man. Most sages concieve that humans were the first intelligent life, but several elven scholar-priests have deemed it possible that elves were in fact the Firstborne.
