The Beginnings: A World without Gods

Hardly anyone remembers the time of heroes and miracles. Many of the stories are long forgotten. A few became legends, whispered in the flickering shadows of evening campfires. 

A World without gods

Hardly anyone remembers the time of heroes and miracles. Many of the stories are long forgotten. A few became legends, whispered in the flickering shadows of evening campfires. 

And sometimes, when the crackling of the smouldering embers heralds the end of the evening, the song of the hubris of the last kings is sung.  An unholy alliance forged in the halls of the discontented. Unimaginable lies carried out by false priests to the ear of the common people. Dark deeds that destroy the harmony between men and gods. An ancient artifact that seals the eternal breach. The last bars sound mostly lonely and sad into the following silence. For everyone knows that the world without gods becomes a world of darkness.

The once mighty kingdoms have crumbled into tribes and city-states. The law of the strongest and the law of greed apply. For what gives courage and hope when there is nothing left to believe in? And yet small sparks light up the hopeless darkness again and again. 

An old man who regrets past deeds and clings to a heroic moment. A now almost grown-up girl who firmly believes in the whispered stories and is in dire need for a miracle. The mother, praying for her unborn son and a better world. Like shooting stars, the individual destinies move through the eternal night. But they do not burn up. Together they pierce the veil that separates the world of gods from the world of men. 

The age-old attraction between mortals and immortals, which had been barely perceptible in the past centuries like a weak pulse, returns with one blow. A symbiosis that should never have been separated and fortunately could never be completely severed.

As long as humans trust, there will be gods to protect them. For the greatest power in the universe is the soul of those who believe. To the Gods, it is the source of power and the elixir of existence. The more followers follow a god, the stronger and more powerful he becomes. 

After the reign of the kings and the following era of darkness, the Age of the Gods is now upon us. And with it a new tomorrow for all mankind.
