The Breaking of the World
One thousand years ago a group of powerful Wizards in the highest ranks of The Prismatic Tower sought a way to gain more power. The Dark One, promising them everything they desired through fevered whispers in their dreams taught them the ritual necessary to tear him from the outer realms into the realm of mankind. These Wizards have become known as the Lost.
The Cataclysm that resulted from his entrance changed the landscape dramatically, causing great rifts and mountain ranges to appear, resulting in the deaths of hundreds of thousands all over the world. This event has become known as The Breaking of the World.
The Dark One immediately began work on subverting and perverting all of The Creator‘s work in the world, and started a war that would last for over a hundred years. The breaking of the world was eventually halted thanks to the efforts of History’s greatest hero Anduril, but it cost him his life to seal the Dark One and all of the Lost away.
