Charter

As the sun began to rise in the horizon, dust swirled all around as an ominous looking figure rode confidently into the small village. Surveying his immediate surroundings, the cloaked man dismounts from his steed and begins walking towards the unopened shop that lay before him. Reaching beneath his cloak, he slowly pulls out a small blade, the hilt held tightly in his right hand. In his left hand he carries a small scroll. With precision and confidence in his movements, the dark figure, in one swift motion, pierces the piece of parchment and powerfully stabs the blade into the wooden door of the shop. Without hesitation he turns around, mounts his steed and rides off...Ö his message delivered to this small village.

Later that morning as the village folk began to go about their business, an old man started his daily routine, walking hand-in-hand with a young boy towards his shop that lay in the middle of the village.

"Whatís that Grammpa?", the young boys asks with an inquisitive tone to his voice, pointing upwards to a piece of paper that hangs from the wooden doorway of the unopened shop.

The old manís face turns pale as he reads the piece of parchment that protrudes from the door. Hesitantly, he reads the inscription on the paper in a nervous whisper. "It says...Ö

-Tellus Exuro-
cometh

Come..." the old man says frantically as he unlocks the door to the shop. "We must hurry... we must leave".

The young boy, still innocently undaunted by the strange mannerisms of his grandfather, looks up and tugs on a sleeve. "What does it mean grammpa? Who is Telluuu....ss Exxx...uuu..rrro?"

The old man stops suddenly, as if he has just heard the voice of reason within his head. "Innocence... ", he whispers to himself, "that was their goal... so the stories and legends say. Come", he says aloud to the boy, while patting his knee for him to seat. "Let me tell you all about it..."

"Before the dawn of the new creation... before our world was torn asunder... before the wars... before the propaganda... all was different, simple... maybe too simple. Soon though, things would never be the same. "The time of the equinox was at hand and the rituals had begun. For years the path had led us all to this day. The day of coronation; our gods would be revealed to us. This was Creation."

The council began their ominous task... to bring myth to life... and life to myth. First came Foret... then Isonia... then Darden. That which was now done could never be undone.

Many temples covered the lands in honor of all three deities. As the children of creation grew, over time, they each began to demonstrate individual traits and characteristics that were unique from the other two. Although some people worshipped and prayed to all three gods, various sects began to congregate, bearing allegiance to only one of the three. Rivalries began, each group denouncing the other gods that did not fall within their circle of beliefs. One such group, made up solely of powerful lords and mages, bearing allegiance to Isonia, became tired of the hypocrisy and petty bickering that began to encompass the world around them. It is said that they headed north, into the mountains, farther than anyone had traveled before. Their goal was to live in isolation... creating kingdoms that would live their lives according to the teachings and beliefs of the goddess.

Many went in search of this land of isolation, hearing rumors that the xenophobic followers of Isonia had created a nation that only dreams could envision... a true Utopia.

None ever returned.

As the years passed, many stories began to spring up regarding this isolated land to the north. It is believed that after spending so much time devoted to Isonia alone, she blessed them with the ability to master the element of fire that burns within everything around us. As a result, some have said that their kingdoms are guarded by giant walls of flames, so as to protect their secrets from outsiders.

As the rage of the realm continued to spread at a virus like pace, most people forgot about the stories. Only a few ever spoke of them... mainly saved to be used as bed time stories for little children. They became referred to as Tellus Exuro... a term taken from an ancient tongue... which translated loosely means Land of Fire. The traditional bedtime stories talk about their exodus to the north, the building of their great and powerful kingdoms, and their eventual return. Yes.... their return... is said to be when the world is at its worst moment... when the chaos, oppression and despair need to be purged... a total return to the way it was... simple.

We must hurry, my boy. The legends are true. They are coming... and they will not be pleased!"
