Fate Bound in Chains
A brief history of the world
Eons ago when the world was peaceful and noble, and a great ignorance of magic existed the world was at rest. Magic was not known to the people of the world and they could not harness its energies. Eventually a great king figured out how to control magic, and his made him the most powerful king in all the world, none could hold a candle to his glory. The king soon conquered all and ruled everything, in this age there were no beasts and monsters, only man. The king had a royal order of 20 men and women to protect him, they were the greatest warriors of the world. Soon the king grew hungry for more power and only shared the secret of magic with is trusted 20, he soon discovered that the source of magic stems from the planets core the king also learned that he could become the most powerful being in existence by absorbing the planets core, the king knew that his loyal 20 would not aid him so he set out alone through a series of exhausting tunnels that led into the planets core. The 20 were right behind him setting out after they had learned of his sinister goal. The king arrived at the core, a large pulsating blue light that gave off intense heat. The loyal 20 caught up just in time and fought an epic battle with the king, he being vastly more powerful had the upper hand, The king dove into the core and having no other choice the loyal 20 fallowed. As a result the core’s power was not given to one person but split into 21 parts and absorbed by each of the loyal 20 as well as the king. The loyal 20 knew they had to act fast so they quickly bound the king into a secure prison and attached 21 magical chains to it that would hold the world in place with the absence of the core, these chains anchored to the surface. the loyal 20 now possessed immense power and became gods each choosing his or her chain as their center of worship. The gods committed themselves to keeping the king imprisoned, however many of the gods grew bored, forgot, or simply did not bother to care any further and became enveloped with their own devices, creating magical beasts and creatures. Today mankind and the magical races have forgotten the great battle and the secrets of magic they once knew, they are ignorant of the chains anchors true purpose, the gods have either grown evil remained good or chosen not to care but one thing is for sure the king must never be released.
