The Dread Mage Rises
The Three Sages were a family of Mages. Using their incalculable power, these sages took it upon themselves to form the three continents that exist today: Shay, Valook, and Rin.
Shay the eldest of the three, was the first to begin crafting the world and put much emphasis on neutrality. Believing that the denizens of the planet should choose for themselves what path they must follow.
Valook formed his continent in the name of power. Believing that the creatures of Tayborne could not govern themselves, he took it upon himself to rule over his land.
Rin, the most cunning of the three, chose to mimic Valook’s landscape, but give the people of her continent order.
Together the three sages gave the creatures of the planet the knowledge they needed to grow. In time the three passed on, Shay leaving behind his libraries, Rin leaving behind many skills, and Valook leaving behind the rule of Law and great architecture.
It must be noted that though they shaped the lands of Tayborne, the creatures were not of their crafting. No one can say how these lands became populated, but it was not within the sages power to create life, only to breathe life back into the weak,dying,and dead.
