Machy

A machy is the end result of a cosmic conflict among the gods. They leave permanent scars on the ecology and environs of the One World, in such a way that new creatures are spawned and unnatural alterations are forced on the land.

Manifestation

Fire from the Sky

Tezcatlipoca was the first god to be incarnated as the sun; and was the longest lasting as the Yellow Sun. And in his honor, the first men were shaped from the smoke from fire.   His reign came to an end by a jealous Tlaloc who sicced jaguars to dethrone him. And when the sun died, his fire fell from the sky and scoured everything.
— Spite of Tlaloc
 

The Torrent Floods

Much like all times before and since, the Gods have made and remade men as often as they have made and remade the sun. With the dying of the Yellow Sun; Chalchiuhtlicue, the Jade Lady, was raised to the White Sun to take Tezcatlipoca's place.   And in her honor, the new men were shaped from seaside jade and they flourished. But as before; when a sun dies, calamity strikes the earth be it fire, wind or quakes. For the end of the White Sun Era; was decided by powerful tides.

Divine Winds

Much like all times before and since, the Gods have made and remade men as often as they have made and remade the sun. With the dying of the White Sun; Tlaloc, the Masked Cloud, was raised to the Black Sun to take Chalchiuhtlicue's place.   And in his honor, the new men were shaped from clouds and they flourished. But as before; when a sun dies, calamity strikes the earth be it fire, wind or quakes. For the end of the White Sun Era; was decided by violent gales.

Keanian
Species | Feb 19, 2021

Species | Feb 7, 2020
The winged Kin came to be after a group of cloud people were blown and shredded in the Wind God's fury to such an extent that they were torn into three forms of Winkin: the parts of their formerly human-selves divided in threes among the genders.

Rock Rains

Much like all times before and since, the Gods have made and remade men as often as they have made and remade the sun. With the dying of the Red Sun; Ehecatl, the Crippled One, was raised to the Violet Sun to take Tlaloc's place.   And in his honor, the new men were shaped from corn and they flourished. But as before; when a sun dies, calamity strikes the earth be it fire, wind or quakes. For the end of the Red Sun Era; there was a tremendous crack across the sky which then mirrored the land.
— Roaring of the Earth

Kin

Kin, are so called because they are the living remnants of earlier humans crafted by earlier Sun gods and goddesses.   By means of some elemental catastrophe, sometimes as a result of machy, those humans who did not die outright had their bodies contorted into different shapes which have since formed into the many animals we know today.   Kin, specifically, did not bear the brunt of the disaster but still did change in accordance with their time and bare distinctly human features.  

Environmental Aftershocks

Hurricane Seasons

In the last half of the year, massive storms blow across the storm straits and impact aside the Northern Range, such that only from inside the Weather Forts can life survive.  

Flood Seasons

Every 50 years, unfathomable tidal shifts coincide with the phases of the elder moon which brings forth massive tsunamis deep into the lower lands.  

Quakes

The impacts of the rock rains so destabilized some still unfallen grounds that they occasionally rumble in distress. Accompanying these rumbles are some strange physiological and psychological effects on people that vary from pleasurable to unsettling.  

Cold Winds

When the biting cold of the swamp is forced over and around the jumps of the Step, they cascade into the valley basin.
