Chapter 1: The creation of the world and the gaps.
To understand the roots of war and why you, Knight, fight, we must seek knowledge of things forgotten by most people. The roots of our conflict are as deep as the very nature of the universe. The world was not always as it is today.
Lukam and Leran are beings that with their effort, and their impulses created materials with a reflection of their feelings. It was they who shaped what would become the world of Baurah with its high mountains, deep valleys and blue skies. Lukam created the sky together with Leran, Leran was also in charge of carving the rocks and giving meaning to the planet, Lukan for his part flooded the valleys and filled the oceans, he also created the Sun by begetting a son that he sent there to protect the land of darkness. The world was wonderful, like a diamond jewel hanging around the neck of the very Gods of the creation of this beautiful earth. However, the envy of others who were not included in the creation of the earth were not satisfied. They felt that there were important things that must have been on the earth after its creation, other things necessary to experience the splendor of the rivers, oceans and lakes, since the rocks and mountains were great, but there was no life.
From the energies that had been used to shape the mountains, two Gods known as Aetos and Eleos created life. Now there were fish to swim in the water and trees to grow on the land. Then animals and birds appeared to adorn the sky that was created by Lukam and Leran. And finally, as a request from Leran, humans were created, whom he created in the likeness of Lukam and Leran. Humans were like both in the sense that they too had the power to shape the world to suit their needs.
For a while everything was fine. The Gods were worshiped in the same way, they were called as such, Gods by humans, they were happy and all their creations rejoiced and prospered in the world that was given to them.
This would soon be undone.
In their rush to create humanity, the main Gods who gave life and meaning to the planet forgot to fill the souls of humans with fidelity to the Gods of creation. It did not take long from creation and prosperity for these humans to forget the Gods of creation and show worship towards the Gods who created the earth.
At first the Gods of creation were patient believing that fidelity was a matter of fashion and that they would believe in them again, but this was not the case.
"We created incompetent beings, incomplete with love, they forgot who their creators were," thought these Gods. "Maybe we can erase what we did and create beings faithful to ourselves again."
Lukam and Leran, the Gods of the Earth opposed the Gods of Creation in the decision to disappear human beings for the simple fact that they were their worshipers and erasing them from existence would be a total lack of loyalty to their followers, they couldn't afford it. The Gods of Creation were unhappy with the decisions thus creating a gap between both groups.
The Gods of Creation were filled with hatred, resentment and envy towards the Gods of Earth for the love of humans towards them. These bad energies that emanated from the Gods of Creation created the feeling of creating different types of living beings on earth with the same energy that the Gods emanated, that's right, the Gods created living beings in the likeness of human beings, although this time, hatred created different models; living beings that looked like wolves, ogres, elves, etc.
Unfortunately for them, not all the living beings they created came out 'perfect' in their likeness, the loyalty they sought. Many of these living beings lived together with humans and adapted to their culture, many others faithful to their principles created a two-sided division where beings faithful to the Gods of Creation hated the worshipers of the Gods of the Earth. The division did not last long since they ended up adapting to the culture of the kingdom where they all lived together.
The Gods of Creation noticed that the beings they created were taking a different course than what they expected, many began to worship the Gods of the Earth because of the culture that humans had created in Baurah. It did not take long for the Gods to realize that this went beyond creation, it was the culture and beliefs that were imposed on those who came to those peoples, who in turn, were not aware of the existence of the gods.
During the creation of the last beings, different types of negative energy balls had fallen to earth in a place far from the realm of humans and living beings who worshiped the Gods of the Earth.
Chapter 2: War of the Gods
The Earth Gods vision of a peaceful world had been shattered by the war between the Earth Gods and Creation, a dispute that began with the creation of sins imposed by Aspistabo, the Earth Gods felt a total betrayal of his principles when living beings were imposed the desires of greed and destruction. The Gods had the power to create but not to renew the mentalities of these beings.
This War in heaven caused living beings to feel the total abandonment of the Gods, while in heaven there were divine wars, on earth there were eternal wars. Mezuk and Gollik with the intention of implanting their ideologies resorted to violence, the blood spilled in the lands was not enough to stop the internal wars in the heavens.
While the world was at war, Aspistabo saw the opportunity to get away from the divine war and released his son, a fierce dark tiger with his eyes surrounded by flame that signifies hatred and aberration to peace and mercy. Skopos, the son of Aspistabo who implanted destruction in the world. Skopos attacked the skies with his fury creating a roar and absolute darkness that was reflected on the earth with dark clouds and thunder that caused temporary deafness in living beings.
The noise was so great that the glaciers of the earth were breaking, the same glaciers that had trapped within them many deities carrying out their crimes for the idea of destruction, among them a ferocious giant beast, Lobe. This beast woke up with the destruction of the glacier that had trapped it for many decades. On the other hand, a woman in the form of a Centaur, with a human head and her hair of fire, had awakened out of her captivity under the rocks of the mountains created by Leran, mountains destroyed by the roar. A woman capable of turning burn to death just by looking into her eyes. Many beasts and deities were released from their captives where they served a sentence for their ideologies of destruction when the world was surrounded by an aura of peace.
While the Gods were in a hellish war, living beings suffered the ravages of wars on earth, fighting in favor of their ideals and against the beasts that threatened their well-being and that of their cities.
Chapter 3: Gollik, Mezuk and their compassion for life.
In the wake of the haunting battle between the Gods, and the appearance of the entities on earth, Baurah began to show signs of change. The flowers lost their scent, the seasons became unpredictable, and the groundwater occasionally turned brown, like rusty. And more changes were coming.
All these things were not the work of the Gods. They were too busy in the endless war in the heavens that made them forget their work on earth.
Years passed, and over time humanity was divided into six great Kingdoms: Heimdallgar in the land of the Deserts; Vertums, famous for its magnificent harvests; Throdok, the city of commerce; Gollik, the realm of kind beings; and Mezuk, the realm of evil beings.
As these Realms formed, changes in the world affected not only existing creatures, but other things. With each passing year, there were more and more sightings of huge creatures that looked like wolves and bears, but were more terrifying and violent. Even more amazing were the stone and magical beings. Worst of all were the corpses bent on refusing death: living corpses with no purpose other than the destruction of the earth.
Before long, these infernal creatures had increased to such numbers that even cities with their high walls and defenses could not repel them. The first to fall was Heimdallgar, for lack of food supplies. Soon after, Vertums fell. It was they who set their own city ablaze instead of dropping it. Survivors flocked aboard ships, fleeing to Gollik, many others to Mezuk.
King Gorzek, ruler of Gollik, welcomed the refugees without prejudice. Marzuk, the King of Mezuk did the same as Gorzek. The capable ones were assigned posts in the army, further strengthening the defenses of the only city that had not yet been attacked. Powerful walls were erected, supplies were brought in, and more weapons were forged. The inhabitants of Gollik and Mezuk were determined not to let their cities fall, and those who had already fled to the new cities were determined in their loyalty to their new home. Gollik and Mezuk had become the last stronghold of humanity. If it were lost, kind beings would be condemned to eternal suffering. Like the evil beings that had nothing to do with the beasts that ruled the earth.
Chapter 4: The prayers and glory of living beings.
For many years the monster masses were fought and during all those years the Kings of the three great Kingdoms prayed to the gods who seemed to have turned a deaf ear and turned a blind eye. Meanwhile, the people resisted and even grew stronger.
After the first two years of fighting, they had gotten used to the attacks. Their position was strong and their fighting skills improved. Finally, they dared to venture beyond the safety of the walls. The construction of tunnels in the mountains behind the city provided metals and wood that they collected by sending armed bands into the forests to fight the monsters that threatened the peace of their kingdoms. Food proved challenging at first, but by relocating much of the population to the mountains and underground, enough space was left within the walled city to plant crops.
By the third year, seasoned veterans began hunting monsters, rather than just waiting to repel attacks. These warriors brought stories of adventure and glory.
