Pantheon of Darkness

During the Age of Tribes, the Gods of the Pantheon of Darkness were feared throughout the world. When the Gods clashed the mortal races were caught in-between the battle that brought unparalleled death and destruction. This clash would become known as the Ravaging. For over a thousands years the mortal races fled and hid from the Gods. When Reknis was finally imprisoned by his brothers many thought the war would end. What followed became known as the Years of Hellfire. For several decades the skies would become blackened from the ash that filled the world. Esnis, wife of Reknis, brought Hellfire to the world as she mourned the loss of her beloved husband. Weakened by their clash with Reknis, Deywos and Bhratis were unable to contain her destruction. Knowing that her rage could annihilate all life, Deywos tasked his sons to bring a stop to their aunt. Through great struggle the sons were finally able to defeat her and imprison her beneath the Gloomy Sea. Exhausted from their task they called upon Mari to watch over her. As the mortal races recovered from the battle of the Gods, many races would strike Reknis, Esnis and their children from their history. Any mention to the Pantheon is only referred to as a natural cataclysmic event.
