The cultures of the World Primordant each have their own myths and stories of the creation of all that is. Some cultures tell stories of the people and cultures being born along with the world, while others portray the steps of evolution and growth of the World Primordant as windows and doors where their culture has suddenly or slowly seeped in, like stages being exchanged between acts of a play. Enemies find their narrative attached to one another's accounting, each generation adding layers of faith onto the tale until the truth has been set by simple belief.
Scholars have grown to refer to six distinct ages, or epochs, to describe the evolution of the World Primordant
Throughout the years, the World Promordant has seen the typical upheaval and discord inherent to life and society. Despotic usurpers, calculating monomaniacs, and even mundane politicians have set a table with conflict and invited their enemies to join them.
