Tales of Verimitha
The Dark Times
Though the gods were now mortal, they still possessed vast power compared to other mortals and they had not forgotten their enemies. The powerful beings would cause tremendous havoc when they fought, and it was all the mortal races could do but hope to stay out of their affairs.
Over the course of thousands of years, many of the gods were slain at the hands of other gods. Kingdoms were created and guided by these powerful beings, then used to wage bloody war against other kingdoms that were the domain of other gods. A few gods are said to have bred with mortals, creating demi-gods whose power was near that of the now mortal gods themselves.
Even thousands of years later, the repercussions of The Dark Times are still felt.
