The Abyss Before Time

Before there was land, sea, or air, there was an Abyss. The Abyss stretched infinitely and infinitesimally, it was nothingness. Neither light nor dark, The Abyss was a void in space, ready to be filled. Mithrainor sat in his Kingdom of Radiance, Vul-Sular, surrounded by tall spires and brilliant courtyards made of pure light. The spires shone across the emptiness of The Abyss and could be seen as far as Vul-Dorun, the Kingdom of Shadows, home of Gulmor, kin of Mithrainor. Vul-Dorun was the opposite of Vul-Sular – it was a darkness in the great void. Gulmor had followed Mithrainor to The Abyss, believing that he could forge himself a kingdom with which to evict Mithrainor from the realm and rule by himself.

Mithrainor and Gulmor were the first to inhabit the realm of Vul, which would eventually become home to the mortal races. Mithrainor was the first to come to the realm and he created light, which he used to craft beautiful buildings and wondrous sculptures in his kingdom. Mithrainor created bliss and wonderment to accompany his bright city and so he rejoiced and made merriment that all was well in his Kingdom. Gulmor was the second, and he created the darkness and the night. Gulmor forged evil and twisted thoughts in the blackness, such as hatred and fear. He plotted in the darkness, and prepared for conflict against his brother.

In Vul-Sular Mithrainor crafted his palace, Luminari, from which he would observe his great city. Its golden walls stood hundreds of feet tall, with all kinds of decoration, every beauty that Mithrainor could create. His city joined by immense pathways, supported by the magic of its craftsman. The ground would ripple as his feet tread on it, each surface emanating the purest golden light. From his golden robe shone the same light, which he darned from the star-light of Vul-Sular. His arms adorned with beautiful bracelets, and his head with a mighty crown. In his kingdom Mithrainor created the Sularin, and they lived in the Kingdom of Radiance with Mithrainor, where they continued their master’s work of creating beautiful art and towering architecture. The Sularin were born to be tall and fair, they would be Mithrainor’s most beautiful and loved creations. Mithrainor saw fit to create five thousand Sularin, enough to inhabit his kingdom and later to shape The Abyss as Mithrainor saw fit.

In Vul-Dorun Gulmor had also created himself a race of people, servants that would do his bidding when the time came to take Vul from his brother. Gulmor created the Race of darkness, and they would be called Dorun, they plotted with Gulmor in his stronghold of darkness, that when their numbers had increased, they would take the void and fill it with all manner of dark creations.
