The First Age of Man


A fter the psionisists were destroyed the world was thrown into a great chaos. The remnants of the noble houses formed scattered clans that waged great battles and fiercly fought over their territory. The hunters that had for years worked as hired assassins slipped away into shadows and into legend. Heroes wandered the world seeking out Necromium with which to make great weapons of war with which they waged vicious duels and battles. In all it was a dark time and the hearts of men grew violent and evil.

The gods looked down on the world and wept. Rivers of blood filled the once clean and peaceful streets while brother killed brother and sister killed sister. Even the gods began to fight, arguing viciously about the world and the evil that was emerging. Some tried to flee across the seas to the lands of Haedoken as refugees, while those at the north end of the great road were isolated when Treestump tore asunder the evil lands of the north, creating the continent known as Vaandergash.

Finally the gods reached down with a great hand and punished the first men for their greed. The great weapons of war were destroyed, and all the belongings of the humans dissolved into dust. Humans once wealthy with mounds of gold found their wallets filled with nothing but dust. Mankind had angered the gods, and so it was that in the coldest month of the year that the humans were cast naked into the wilderness in punishment. Such penance did they serve and many of the first of the men went into the great wilderness never to return... such did the first age of man end.
