Children of the Goddess of Love
Filii deae amoris
The sacred book of love mentioned a group of woman called the Filii deae amoris. Which translated means children of the goddess of love. It goes on to say that because of them, The world was at peace for thousands of years first under kingdoms and then under a empire. For it they that introduced the world to a marriage of love -Queen of love Sasha
The children of the goddess of love, Or Filii deae amoris are the direct children and later decedents of the goddess of love herself who were around until the great purge which wiped them all out. It was said that the goddess had seven daugthers,each daugther would be sent off to each of the known continents of the world to form kingdoms in each of them. These Kingdoms although separated by a distance at first, were linked by conquest by a powerful queen later on who would form an empire that spanned across the known world. This empire would ensure the teachings of the goddess were maintained, and that peace was kept. This peace ensured the growth of the world in technology, which under peace lead to significant innovations.
Vraeneian KingdomOut of all the kingdoms formed by the original daugthers of the goddess of love, only one of them had the most impact on the world and in the region that it was founded in. This kingdom was called Vraeneian which was founded along the banks of a river locals believed to be connected to a goddess of their own. This Kingdom would be ruled by female rulers for all of its history. The civilization that formed was rooted in the teachings of the goddess and it was through this kingdom a concept that would later be found in the empire was formed. The rulers of Vraeneian would find themselfs in a struggle with a new religion and kingdom that formed alongside of them not long after their founding. This smaller kingdom was male dominated and worshiped a god they called the shadow god . The rulers of Vraeneian used diplomatic marriage to unite the two kingdoms together. And it was through this that later generations would use marriage to keep the followers of the shadow god and the followers of the goddess of love in balance.

Inside of the Pyramids, scholars have found intact writing on the wall from the entrance to the burial chamber itself, it tells the tale about the journey one takes to meet with the goddess once more, How they journey itself lasts 12 hours to reach the goddess, Along the way one sees their life before them and the deeds they have done. This had led scholars to map out each queen rule and what they accomplished. In the non queen tombs much of the same is found, except it only mentions what they did during their lives.
Burial chamber of IseueriIn the burial chamber of the first Queen of Vraeneian Iseueri , One could see the true dedication to love and the goddess. One side of the burial chamber is the queen and on the opposite side is her husband. On the middle wall, they meet together and hold hands with each other and the goddess herself is blessing their marriage. On the walls next to the two images are dedication made to each other about loving each other for eternity. It is here that one could see just how much love meant to them. That marriage was about loving one’s partner. This scene repeats in each of the pyramids regardless of the gender of the spouse. Love was love, and it did not matter who you loved, be it your gender or the opposite gender.
Common EtiquetteA common Etiquette that was practice was the kissing of the cheeks of friends or even strangers in greetings. It meant to show ones love for another even after a defeat in a debate or a heated arguement, It symbolized the love one had for the other regardless of what was happening currently, Disputes could be ended with a simple show of compassion or love for the other party. Often times a debate or even a deal would be sealed with a kiss on the cheeks.
Are there any remaining?There are none alive today that could claim to be decedents of the goddess of love or her seven daughters. There is evidence to suggest they were all wiped out in a great purge when the demons invaded the world through portals, killing most of the world’s population in a week. And there is no evidence of them appearing after the purge, leading many to believe they are truly extinct on Daemonium

LegacyFilii deae amoris legacy endures, although hidden from most of the public and in the books they left behind. In many of the books, it talks about a technology called the steam engine, which, if the books are to be believed, goes into detail just what a steam power engine was. It says the following,
It operated by atmospheric pressure on the top face of a piston in a cylinder, in the lower part of which steam was condensed to create a partial vacuum. The piston was connected to one end of a rocking beam, the other end of which carried the pumping rod in the mine shaft.These have yet to be found and have only been mentioned in the books as part of the technology that made up the Filii deae amoris Kingdom of Vraeneian
Ladies of loveHistory tells of the three most important Filii deae amoris. These were chosen not to become queens of Vraeneian but to become ladies of love who were chosen to marry a lord of shadow. A sacred marriage that ensured that there was a balance between shadow and love. Although there was peace in the world, a balance was still needed to be maintained between the two powerful forces. With this marriage, those who wielded shadow magic and those who wield love magic were equal, with neither one able to overcome the other.
