The Great Revelation

        Many ages ago, in the times when the land was still covered in the mist of oblivion, no one sensed that the wind of changes was drawing closer. Both, people living in poverty and the mighty kings were exhausted with the chaos of the past millenia. The sides of the conflict have soon signed a treaty and the cries of war have abated. The folk started a new and better life by following the instructions of the united temples, known as the Order. It was a time of bucolic flowering as well as expansion of cities, castles and shrines.  Although the architecture of those times is full of harmony, the tension was easily noticable. On the path of the history manking was about to enter an unknown territory...

       Royal sages and seers started proclaiming various phenomena that would foreshadow the worst. Soon everyone focused on the remote Black Mountains, which were considered the mystic source of all evil. The council of sages and seers convinced the Royal Alliance that the uncharted terriotories must be explored. To do so they would launch three seperate expeditions but none of them has ever returned or been heard from....

        The Order was the only one to object against such actions. In their opinion the expeditions would face certain deth in the hazardous mountain conditions. According to the oldest book, which since ages was is the possesion of the elders, the changes were about to come from within. And so it would happen but this knowledge has never left the walls of the Order...

        When the kings were engaged with the sequent expeditions, the miracle happened where no one would expect. This time the winter was extremely harsh and the rivers were covered in ice. One clear night, when the stars were shining brighter than usual, a small girl named D'heria was delivered in a remote village. The baby was unique, because from the very begining is was aware of the stolen legacy of mankind - she was aware of magic...

       D'heria brought magic back to the world, where mystic powers have been long forgotten. Many apprentices have followed her through the kingdom to laern the ways of ancient wisdom. They have awaken spirits of the past in every place they visited and soon many people found themeselves to be  commanding elements like in fairy tales and legends... 

       Contrary to the Royal Alliance, the Order was ready for the upcoming events and sent his emmisaries as soon as possible. Temples, which were scattered throught the land soon became outposts for people seeking mystic knowledge. Using both, the knowledge contained in the old tomes and D'herias wisdom, the Order became more powerfull then ever before. At this stage, the Great War was impossible to avoid. The Royal Alliance could not just stand and watch by how the changes were undergoing. The council of sages, in fear of loosing their privilages, presented D'herians and the Order as a threat to the present rulers. Soon all of the armies were rushing into battle... 

        With each passing day, Dheria continued her journey towards the capital - the city of Oleghard. Her mission was to return the knowledge to all of the mankind, including the kings. Being absorbed with important matters in each visited town, D'heria send messangers to the capital to stop the upcomming war. Unfortunately none of them has ever reached their destination...

        Finally both, the D'herias wisdom and the knowledge of the old chronicles were in the hands of the Order. The arch-priest supreme council has agreed in secret that magic should forever remain a domain of the Order at all cost. They summoned a confidencial institution that would get rid of their enemies among the mages. It was commanded by the most ambitious arch-priest Rhamades Ademhar, who decided that D'herias wisdom was not to fall into the hands of the kings. D'heria was betrayed and slain by Rhamades, who deceived her followers and turned them against the Royal Alliance. This is how the last hope for peace was lost...

        Many years have passed and the land was consumed with chaos of wars. The Royal Alliance initially had a great advantage over the mages, who were disorganized and small in numbers. Kings commanded a vast and well trained army. They raised all villages where mages sought shelter. Both, the Order and the harassed D'herians were forced to retreat to the remote swamps, where the hand of the Alliance could not reach them. The situation was about to change in the forthcoming years. The mages were gaining support and greater understanding of the lore. Finally, after the land witnessed many victorys and as many defeats, the Order using powerful spells as well as deceit was capable of turning the kings against each other. Once they were alone, they were no match for the mages. Ten years have not passed when the mages were ready to take matters of the known world into their own hands. Now the kings found themselves hiding from the watchful eyes of the mages. Soon the landscape was dominated by their towers. The world settled in a New Order...
