In the beginning the chaos was formed into the planes of existence by The Primordials. They divided the positive and the negative.
From these planes they created beings of immeasurable power to watch over them and control the wild energies that still flowed through them.
These new beings being bored created life so that they could be revered.
This new life revered their creators with such fervor they named their creators Gods.
Emboldened by their creations the Gods sought even more power.
Not content with their own planes they sought out the others.
Wars were waged.
Countless lower beings lost their lives.
Still a God never died.
For such a thing to happen would be unthinkable.
Such powerful beings were surely immortal.
Soon the Gods banded together to take power from their own creators.
The Primordial saw this and were outraged.
To go against the creating energies was unimaginable.
The war that was waged destroyed the planes of existence.
Hardly any life remained.
The Primordials decided that the Gods did not deserve the power they had been granted.
And so the once omnipotent beings were cast down.
Still they didn’t die.
Forever cursed to walk their own destroyed planes for eternity.
Soon The Primordials fell asleep.
The Gods discovered that their powers had not been taken from them, merely locked away.
Overtime the Gods reawakened their power.
And war began anew.
The Gods vying for the power contained within the planes.
It was in one of these battles that the unthinkable occurred.
A God struck down, by another God.
The Battle stopped.
The killer threw down his weapon, so appalled by his own actions.
It was at that battle that a new god was born.
From the chaos a child stepped out.
He decreed from this day forth no God would fight another God.
And so time went on.
The planes flourished.
There was peace.
Until there wasn’t.
What Oratus does not mention is that the gods did continue fighting. However the conflicts were always minor, some god of some star wanting to be the new god of that star. Or some god of war wanting to be the most powerful god of war. Never again did they attempt to kill one another. That is of course until the battle waged in stories; between the God Ra and Apep his brother. Of course we know very little from this time. The books and much of the writings were destroyed in the battles that spanned whole planes ending on a small world known as Talead, in which countless gods lost their lives in battle. To kill a god though for another god seems to be rather taboo. While it does happen in this story it causes a shift in the power of the gods. It does seem when the battle ended on Talead the gods decided for a time to leave the world alone, to let it heal. For a mortal to kill a god though. It would take monumental effort. They are beings of great power, but they are not Immortal. Perhaps all that is required is great skill, cunning, and weapons forged by gods. We shall never know.
