The March of Ages
Millenia ago, the world was ruled by 15 Great Dragons. These Dragons commanded god-like powers and were able to traverse the cosmos, creating life or causing destruction at their whim. They created the Dy’Voth to serve and worship them. The Dragons’ powers followed certain themes: Fire, Water, Air, Earth, and Aethyr. There were always 15 Dragons, but their individual identities were fluid. Somnambuliss tricked Goraurik into destroying one of the two moons of the world, plunging the world into chaos and the dragons into civil war.
Eventually, the Usurpers came, and Somnambuliss tricked the Dragons into attacking them. The Usurpers battled the dragons for dominance over the land, and eventually won.
The 15 Great Dragons at the time of Somnambuliss’ treachery were:
Somnambuliss: The Trickster, The Oracle
Leopa: Keeper of Secrets, Loremaster
Goraurik: The Hunter, The Fool
Elynsinias: The Blood Maiden
Ouroboros: Shatterstar, Scorcher of Souls
