Life and Adventure
A Divergent World (5th Edition)
The universe was formed by the Primordials, beings of pure chaos, both creators and destroyers. In creating the universe, they also created their counterparts, Gods. Unlike the Primordials, the Gods saw the creations for what they were and each of them took some parts of the universe for their own. When those parts were to be destroyed by the whims of the Primordials, the Gods fought to protect their property/charges/loves.
So the Titan War began. The Gods gained strength from the Universe, but the Primordials’ power knew no bounds. They lashed out destroying many of the Gods. Even though the Gods suffered casualties, they regrouped and managed to destroy one of the Primordials. That changed everything.
The first Primordial death caused a wave of chaos to blow through the Gods. Many of them grew stronger from this, taking the raw energy and molding it to their wills. Some were warped by it, becoming twisted with the tainted power. But this was the turning point for the Gods. With each Primordial defeated, the Gods gained power. Finally, some of the Gods grew tired of the killing and began to imprison the Primordials instead; but either way, it was the end of the war.
Once the war was over the Gods turned their powers back to the universe, shaping and repairing their chosen parts. The Gods tainted by the Primordial wake fled into the empty places of the universe to form their own new realms, feeling disconnected from the world that they once owned a part of. Once the world was repaired from the war ravages they sat back to watch life unfold.
And it did. The civilizations discovered a new power source in a crystal they dubbed: Neocite. The power in these crystals was able to be manipulated by arcane energies and has led to a Magitechnical Revolution.
