==The Beginning==
 
==The Beginning==
The first of the Gods was [[Arcainium]], whose worship has fallen away. He stood upon the lifeless rock that was Ya'Ria. He despaired for with his near limitless power he was lonely. His despair caused a single hair to fall from his head. Where the hair touched ground life sprung forth. [[Arcainium]] had discovered that he could create life. He created the flora and fauna of the world.

==The races of Man==
[[Arcainium]] was still alone, so he dug deep within his power and he created man'' (many scholars argue that the first race was not man but in fact [[Lightborn]]).'' These thinking creatures finally gave [[Arcainium]] the camaraderie he desired, however he had made a powerful new creation. He found that Man had taken some of his power of creation and they now could create Gods and Goddesses of their own.

==The Elder==
Where Man huddled in fear of darkness, pain and death, their power collected and [[Rakus]] was born. He sprang forth aged and solemn as the tomb. He took some of his power and formed the first Elder race the [[DeadBorn]]. Man feared death. This simple statement summed ages of man's history. When the first lie was spoken [[Syndiliss]] was created ''(many ancient texts disagree, there is record of Syndiliss as a diety of knowledge and magic till near the second age)'' As a response to that lie a man slay his brother on a field of combat. This created [[Haun-Taurus]], War. For years these Elder Gods ruled man.

==The Fae==
 
==The Fae==
There is no knowledge of the origins of the Fae. None of the Gods take credit for their creation, in fact the Gods hold little power over them. Some feel that the Fae are perhaps made of the same aether that Arcainium created himself from. The Fae are not Gods but as a major Power, they are included in this work.

As man developed and grew, he began to want and desire more than the narrow scope of the Elder gods. Art and music had become common and broke from the praise and worship of the Gods. [[Codladh]] began gaining power. He was the first of the Gods to not spring from belief and aether, though few recall his origins. [[Titem]] came later, but she still reveres the balance and rejects both the Elder and Younger Pantheons.

When the followers of the [[Elder Gods| Dark Church]] went to war with the peaceful followers of [[Codladh]] many farmers and tradesmen took up tools of war in defense. A man, said to be a simple farmer, went to war and sheltered those weaker than himself. He was a shield for the weak. His name was [[Vhundarus]] and it was he that ascended as the first God of man. His Ascension led to one of the worlds bloodiest battles as he and [[Haun-Taurus]] warred back and forth. This wholesale destruction is what led to the creation of [[Titem]], who is said to have been a widow of one slain in that war. As Man struggled to feed itself following the [[First God War]], medicine and Alchemy became important. A woman who had learned the secrets of [[Codladh]]'s blessing and [[Rakus]]'s mastery of life and death became the second God of man, [[Esmara]]
