These have been sitting for a while, figure we'll let people know now. Tell me what ya think!
When the world was forged, magic ran rampant among men and corrupted them. Crime, hatred, and war plagued the world of Kre'thos. Two men of immense power and knowledge, Endymion and Kiron, saw the world as the hell it was. They wished to end the horror, so they gathered 7 followers and together the group of 9 created a magical Fyrestone to absorb and seal the world's magic. After hundreds of years, the Fyrestone had absorbed all the magic of the world.
Their work completed, Endymion and Kiron needed to make sure the magic could never be accidentally released back into the world. They created a powerful blood seal with their seven disciples, and sacrificed themselves to complete the seal. Since the seven disciples helped create the blood seal, the only way the seal could be broken is if all seven of their souls were to be reapplied to the blood seal on the Fyrestone, along with a source of immense magical power to break the final blood seal formed by the sacrifice of Endymion and Kiron. Because of the way their blood was bound, none of the seven could ever die naturally. Understanding this, they each entombed themselves in 7 points throughout the world, where they lie in eternal sleep, defending the Fyrestone by making sure their souls could not be used to break it's seal.
Throughout the ages, races of humans, elves, orcs, and other mystical creatures have walked the earth. Whilst here, the different races have each found their own unique sources of power during their time on the planet Kre'thos, ranging from new styles of spiritual and elemental magics that were not sealed away with the Fyrestone, to technology like we use today. None of these races ever met each other, they each died out and were born so far apart in the vast expanses of time that their existences were invisible to each other.
Recently, one of the 7 disciples of Endymion and Kiron--named Ek'theros--became so angered at his dismal existence that he set his mind on an evil plot. He awoke himself and stayed entombed, gathering his power back from his slumber that had lasted through eons. Once he had attained his full power, he broke out of his tomb and sought out the other 6 disciples. 1 by 1, he broke into their tombs and sealed their souls inside orbs, then murdered the then-mortal disciples. Ek'theros had murdered 5 out of 6 disciples, but when he came upon the last disciple, he was surprised to find that disciple had already come out of her sleep. She had felt the souls of the other 5 disciples trembling, and knew something was awry. She was not powerful enough, however, to hold off Ek'theros, as he had been gathering his power back for a much longer time than she. Ek'theros was able to steal part of her soul into an orb--but not to kill her. Using the power she had gained back she was able to fight back and escape to the world above.
Ek'theros tore out a piece of his own soul and traveled to the hidden home of the Fyrestone, still standing sturdy as ever with the blood-seal imposed upon it. He gathered many elves (as this occured while elves walked Kre'thos), corrupted by the thought of the immense magical power of the Fyrestone being their own. With the 5 complete souls, 2 partial souls, and the immense army of elves, Ek'theros attacked the blood-seal on the Fyrestone in an attempt to shatter it and return the magic it held to the world.
The Fyrestone, however, backlashed. The orbs were sent soaring into the world, and many of the elves were slain. Ek'theros survived only because of the part of his soul that he did not tear out. It was still bound to the Fyrestone, and since the Fyrestone was able to survive the attack, so was he.
However, Ek'theros and his army did manage to do immense damage to the Fyrestone. In the time at which the seal was weakest, the Fyrestone cracked. Leaking immense magical power, the Fyrestone has caused the world to go into a state of disarray.
Time and space themselves were shattered in the torrent of magical energy. Time periods from all throughout the history of Kre'thos have begun manifesting themselves in random places all throughout the world, turning huge cities of the future back to the glorious capitals of ancient times.
Now Ek'theros and the escaped disciple, Kaethe, have begun gathering new comrades for the immense war to come. Kaethe and her army defending the Fyrestone and attempting to mend it, with Ek'theros and his power-hungry army attempting to further damage the Fyrestone and release magic once more into this world.
