Pavri Tyleanin

There were many ages before the age of man, when many wondrous creatures lived and roamed the green places. First there came the Age of the Essence That Was. This gave birth to entropy which scattered the Essence. From thence came the Age of the Spirits, who roamed free of form. From thence came the Age of Souls who dreamed of shapes in which they could dwell. From thence came the Age of Sprites, who played in the winds that blew in that time. From thence came the Age of Those Who Dwell in the Deep -- and those who came to live there were many and varied, for they had shape and form. From thence came the Age of Dragons, and their blood burned. From thence came the Age of the Fey, when the races of the Fair danced about and ruled the green. From thence came the Age of Mortals, who bound the land in steel and stone, and those who came before cried out for they knew not what to do. Some withdrew into the hidden places, some vanished beyond finding, some wove themselves into the fabric of our being to be seen by a scarce few.
