    • Creation of the World

      That is not official background and there are some grammatical errors..)

      Before the time itself, there was nothing in the world but the realm of emptiness and silence. It was in such a bleak world that there were two gods: the All-Mother - the Demiurg and the All-Father - the Creator. For an inconceivably long time the world kept silence, until the gods became tired of eternal loneliness and decided to create the earth, making it beautiful.
      Wherever All-Mother stepped, on the place of emptiness a firmament appeared, and the All-Father fullfiled it with the motion of life. Mountains immediately rose above the ground, rivers and streams flowed. On its surface immediately conceivable plants were sprouting. Then the gods created animals, as well as elemental spirits and guardians of the forest thickets, mountain peaks and oceans. Together with the light came the god Mixoatl - the Serpent, covered with feathers - the Lord of Heaven. At first they all lived in harmony and peace. But the gods were disappointed that no one praised their creators. Then the gods tried to creat different races from the mud, but there was no soul in their bodies, so theiy stood empty and motionless. Meanwhile in the mud there were some other creatures, hungry and greedy. They delved in the mud and multiplied their own kind, not wanting to praise and respect their creators. The gods came to anger and hordes of wild reptiles descended on the creatures who did not worship the inhabitants of the Heaven; only a score were able to hide deep underground.
      With hearts full of sadness after their failures the gods decided to ask Mixoatl- Lord of Heaven, - for the wisdom. Throwing lots, he advised to create new servants from wild reptiles, who had already proved their loyalty once before - this way saurians were born. These new creatures came out so good that the gods gave them the power to rule all other living beings in the world. At the same time the mud-races began to awaken from their century long slumber. They were primitives and they had no place in Mixoatl plan but slaves. Be they riversandborn elves, stoneborn dwarfs, clayborn humans or peatborn greenskins, they were hunted down and brought to the saurians slavedens or sacrificed to praise the Gods.

    • At the beginning all were under the rule of the Others and they were cold and merciless to the races of earth. So it went on for the countless generations and very few tribes remained free and yet they were prey to the cold-blooded. To this day this fear and hatred haunts many of us.
