A thousand years after mankind's destruction, in the next age of Earth, the planet plays host to an evolved version of humanity. With all truth of their origin lost to myth and legend over generations, the survivors wandered the wastelands, drawn to mysterious sites rich with a mineral they called meta-coral. This versatile compound became the corner stone of a new civilization and way of life.
As the population increased, the community became segregated, forming two dominant rival clans. Each developed their own religions as well as theories about their ancestors before them; their conflicting beliefs eventually lead them to war. Suu’Vitan and O’sar fought for more than a century over land they believed sacred, eventually leaving their society in ruin with millions dead. It was at that moment, when war had taken over every aspect of their lives, that they were blessed by the return of the Acolytes; the five prophets rumored to have founded their civilization centuries earlier.
The Acolytes forced both sides to see the true enemy before them, bringing an end to the Long War. They mysteriously vanished after the final battle, leaving only their word that they would come back when the evil returned. Since that day the Suu’vitan and O’sar have enjoyed an era of peace, the prophesied return of evil ignorantly forgotten as the years go by.
