PostSubject: The Beginning   Sat Jun 26, 2010 4:10 am

At the start of the universe, there was only chaos. The very fabric of space-time was wrapped up and bound inexplicably to itself, before it began to settle down over time, allowing the formation of the first spirits. These were great and powerful entities, known as the Gods, and as they coalesced out of nothing, they began to know of the emptiness around themselves, a void filled with other Gods. Each and every one of them began to exert their will, pushing and pulling against those around them as they began to experiment with this universe in which they found themselves. For as the Gods formed, so did the galaxies, each filled with stars and planets, a giant playground to these childlike entities. But there was simply not enough space in the universe, and God continually interfered with God, each in the other's way until they began to realize that they could destroy each other.

So the first purge began as the balance was upset. Within an instant, the number of Gods dwindled from their previously astronomical numbers, until only the strongest remained. They were the most powerful, and they sat at a stalemate, none of them able to achieve any form of victory over another. It was during this stalemate that the first beginnings of sentient life were bourn into the universe by the Gods. They were curious, and a few began to create systems of beings that could exist outside of their direct control. It was then that they learned of the spiritual energy generated by the souls given to sentient life, and a practical arms-race began, the search for superior life forms becoming the focus of each entity. Gods were attempting to find ways to generate more energy and kill off the creations of other Gods, leaving them at an incredible disadvantage.

It was at this point that the Watchmaker left the astral plane, never to return. He was a God that could foresee the eventual result of this competition, and sought to protect the sentient races that were being taken advantage of, so he abandoned his ability to edit reality and descended to the mortal plane. For most Gods did not care about the condition of their creation, only that they were devoted, either out of love or fear, and that they were ready to fight to the death. Atrocities were committed, and the brutal era of racial conflict began. Gods began to die, their numbers growing yet fewer as they devised new ways to exploit life in their hunger for power. All this time, the Watchmaker worked on his creation. His goal was to create a race by mortal hands, a feat that all Gods believed impossible, yet he defied them. He crafted his race out of gears and cogs of a complexity unmatched by anything else in the universe, allowing his "Clockwork" to eventually develop souls.

As the Watchmaker continued to defy the Gods, some of their number began to realize the atrocities they were committing, but one in particular became vehement about the situation. Seeking to remedy it, the god began to implement a plan in an attempt to help save the tortured souls of the mortals. It started with the Elves, which were surprisingly close to its objective. They were a humanoid race, potent in skill and patient in temperament, doing well in the initial stages with their fervent devotion, but in the end they were not fast enough to support the wishes of their God.
