The Creation Myth
Over 150,000 years before the present era, the primordial god of order and primordial god of chaos ruled a split cosmos. The god of order could only bring structure and universal laws, and the god of chaos could only tear down and reform. Neither could create alone. Seeking for worlds to rule and change, they formed the planes. In the early days of the world, the planes were close, and bled into each other. Deities were born as personifications of their respective domains, leading to the creation of lesser being to serve these deities. The first dragons and giants entered the worlds, serving the deities that created them and battling over their respective domains. The first aboleths were born from a dark plane of chaos, seeking to consume other powerful beings for their memories and emotions and rise up against the chaos that created them. The great beasts would rule the worlds for another hundred thousand years. Ten thousand years before the present era, the primordial gods had long retreated to their respective planes: Mechanus and the Plane of Elemental Chaos. The deities that ruled the planes began to fight in the absence of the primordial gods, seeking to expand their domains to consume others, breaking the balance that created the world. The planes shattered into countless sub-planes, and the gods began to form subservient races to fight on their behalf. Humans, elves, dwarves, and countless other humanoid and monstrous races were born to fight a hopeless war. Planes were broken and reformed as deities defeated or subjugated their neighbors. The birth of the new races led to the fall of the dragons and giants, as they retreated from the much more numerous "lesser beings." After ten thousand years of constant war, the lawful good deity Bahamut and chaotic evil deity Tiamat reached the conclusion that continued war would only destroy their domains, and therefore, the gods. The two opposing deities, as their primordial forbears once had, reached an accord. They each appealed to their respective allies, and formed the pantheon of the gods. The pantheon worked to repair the planes and their respective domains, culminating in the reuniting of the prime material plane. The plane was reformed from the sub-planes of deities of many alignments, leading to the land resembling the deities that once ruled it. With the planes being reformed, and the centuries long war ending, the races that now ruled the planes exploded in population. They conquered new lands, each other, and formed kingdoms, leading to the current world of Confracta.
