The Myth of the Old Gods

A long, long time ago, powerful mages and humans lived in the same world, walking next to each other. These mages were like humans, but had incredible powers and subjulgated them whwnever they wanted. The humans grew fearfull and decided to rebel and set themselves free. The mages were powerful, but were not organized and were much less in numbers, resulting in their demise. These folks were captured and burnt by the people under the faith brought by the Poecy, that worshiped the Gods of Life and Death. This organization dizimated the mages with the help of the kings and brought peace once again to the kingdoms of humans.


Once there was mages, powerful humans that could control reality itself. Humans declared war on these mages, using the pretext that these people were dangerous and needed to be contained.
