The Empire of Ru-Nal: Creation of The World


In the beginning there was nothing, then Nal gave the nothing shape – creating the land and the sky and the water.

Nal thought The World was good, but longed for companionship; So Nal created a wife Un-Nal, and he was happy.

His Wife soon grew bored with the empty World and asked for something she could care for, so Nal created four children.

However, the children did not bring Un-Nal the happiness she desired, as the children grew in their innate powers, they began to bicker and torment each other. So Nal gave unto each of his children a task. While Un-Nal was busy watching the Children, Nal set his eyes on new creations. He called them Man, and he watched as they spread across The World. To give them company on the material plane, Nal Also created a multitude of plants and animals so that they could have food and clothes.

Yet while they spread, they too fought like the gods above.

So Nal tasked each of his children with a charge.

To Ru-Archon, he charged with showing Man how to defend themselves and protect their loved ones.
To Ru-Rhóna, he charged with showing Man compassion and love and how to heal the sick and wounded.
To Ru-Mhindi, he charged with showing man the wisdom and knowledge of The World.
And finally, to Ru-Talia he charged with showing Man how to farm the land, harvest the plants and feed and cloth themselves.

This did not work the way Nal had planned, soon enough the scattered tribes of Man had formed into four great clans, each worshiping their patron god. The followers of Ru-Archon became violent and warlike, raiding other clans and spreading their dominance. The Followers of Ru-Rhóna built temples to house the sick and poor, but kept their skills and knowledge of the healing arts a tightly kept secret. The Followers of Ru-Mhindi wrote volumes of text and locked away the knowledge in great tomes. The followers of Ru-Talia hoarded their food supplies and refused to share.

The simmering hatred for each clan soon turned to war that ravaged the clans for eons, until the coming of Tyr.
