The Creation Myth
After the gods created the earth, the sea, and the many creatures that now dwell upon it they created several guardians that embodied the aspects necessary to keep order in the world. They were Justice, Love, Wisdom, Power, Life, and Death. The guardians tended the earth’s development and watched it grow. But as the various races started out there was much fighting over resources, land, and slaves. This angered Justice to the point that he felt justice could only be served by eliminating all the higher races from the earth and leaving the world without life.
The other guardians fought against Justice, feeling that the races just needed more time to become more civilized and deserved another chance. Together they imprisoned Justice and then removed themselves from the world out of fear the same would happen to them as time went on. They become disembodied and their energy flowed into the earth and became the source of magic in the world.
When the gods saw what the races of the world made their guardians do they abandoned the world to destroy themselves. It is believed this is why the gods no longer answer prayers and that only when races have fully atoned will the gods return.
