“It was a tumultus time, but the Thursar Twins high above, instilled hope! ”
Several key factors, like Gods springing into existence, Boriac’s chaotic ‘World of Camps and Gardens, and Mana leaking to the Vornirs distaste, resulted in a mighty feat of cooperation, shoving, dragging, stretching, and reordering everything known into a gargantuan ‘Magic Carpet of the Physical World enclosing the ‘Astral within. No need to say, I assume, that Thursar and Wickeryadi were upset; there would be no leaks to secretly nurse and have flourish, the elements were restrained, and link intersections should occur close to the centre, thus cancelling each other out. Boriac, Vornir and Gods had long arguments with Thursar’s, meanwhile realising that the world’s surface now laid in utter darkness, making it difficult for Humans, Other Races and Fauna to orienrate and travel. Thus they offered two Thursars, a Male and a Female, to become beacons in the sky as the Sun and Moon, serving as a poignant reminder of the sacrifices Divine Races are willing to offer. Satisfied with the compromise, and as a result of the joy of Races, fauna, and flora, they forgot the Wickeryadian dismay.
Maybe it was this neglection, or maybe it was because of the secret ‘Knowledge the Wickeryadi had taught some Drakk Alfar. Was passed on to the Vornir in order to enhance the hand weaving of Astral Mana threads. Especially since this allowed some Drakk Alfar to aid in shaping a tribe of Ljost Alfar—a hybrid between the realms of Astral and Void—that should have been a task honourably given to the Wickeryadi. Thus, once again, they felt overlooked by those who were once their kin.
Or, in fact, it was an accident when Drakk and Ljost Alfar, returning from the Vornir, had their Spirits consumed while resting in a Wickeryadi-tended grove. But three things happened: very few of the hybrid Ljost Alfars now exist; the carcasses of the spirit-drained became the vampires of Wickerii Grove; and these Vampires became the only real masters of the Void and Astral Hand Weaving known as ‘. These, the first of the vampires, equaled those of the Divine Races in power. After a period where they had multiplied into several generations, an attempt to destroy them all took place.
This release of energies became known as the 1st Cataclysm, resulting in a breach of our World’s fabric so severe that it tore apart along the equatorial belt, and the Astral Sea within spewed and sprayed forth alongside molten earth and stone. All was total chaos; somewhat secret races even surged forth and joined the fray, but to the surprise of Vornir and Boriac and to the dismay of the Gods, the leaked Astral Mana crystallised at an astonishing pace. Yet the cataclysm was of such proportions that a truce was called, and all joined in a successful collaborative effort to save the World from further devastation. Nevertheless, the massive surge of Mana during the cataclysm had an enduring effect on the Sun and Moon, altering their celestial paths so they now drift at a 90-degree angle, resulting in extreme degrees of heating at the poles—and it ended the First Age.
And the Vampires —they prevailed.
