|Period||8778 GE - 9500 GE
The God Era spans the period 8778 GE - 9500 GE. The many realms that came into being during the Dawn Era were in need of oversight, so new gods were created from the angels. They were charged with protecting these realms and to be ever-watchful for primordial invaders. For many, this watch was incredibly boring, only Silvanus seemed to take comfort in the raw nature and wild beasts of his charges. Probably out of boredom or curiosity, the gods began seeding their worlds with more creatures. Some egotistic and vain deities, particularly Ares, took to having his creations pay homage to him. He grew in strength, ever so slowly, with each new worshipper. As he grew in strength, he was able to cross-over into other realms. He then began to plant his religion in other god's realms. One of the early gods, his or her name long since forgotten was forced out of his realm by Ares. This was not by combat, but by divine influence.
We don't know who or what created this Rule of Divine Governance, but it seemed to work that by gaining more worshipers, a god gained more power over a realm. If a god, had overwhelming divine influence by way of a large worshipper base, he or she could strip another god of his mandate to rule a realm. Ares used his overwhelming influence to take over several worlds. When I and others learned of this, we had no choice but to create our own religion and attract worshipers.
- Arcana, from a rune stone inside Achamâz - "Divine Influence"
The God Era is a time of creation of new gods and the spreading of their religion across the realms. It is also the period when the gods battled the demon hordes of the Abyss and when the Fallen Angels came into being. There is not much information on the period. This was a time long before the civilizations of today. The records contained here are all that have been found by the realm's historians.
