    Dark Gate Lore

    An important note: What is listed here and what the common person actually knows are not the same thing. While it is a somewhat widespread belief that many of the gods are dead or never existed, saying that and saying that someone knows about what Matthias did are not the same thing. The gods almost never acted in any direct fashion, and as the world spun on without them their presence was not missed... Initially at least. Cults with genuine knowledge regarding the deaths or sealing of certain deities are rare and often guard the source of their knowledge, lest it destroy what little faith people still have. Most of the gods are still worshiped in one form or another even after the decline of faith in general following the loss of their influence, and while the benefits of such faith might be objectively questionable, many of those possessing such information are of deep faith themselves and thus opt not to reveal the death of the deities that they revere to the general public.

    Also, keep in mind that this is what I'm choosing to reveal at this time. There may be more to an entry than I let on, but that would get revealed in the actual game and then eventually edited in here.

        I apologise for the above post.

        MINION! Get on the fucking forum before I come over with a bag of nails! I'm not sure what I'm going to do with them yet, but I'm sure it'll be both gory and painful for you! (So try not to get too aroused, you sick guro-masochist.)

            Re: Lore

            Heaven's Children
            Angels
            Spoiler


            Timeline
            4900 BAI
            -First angels are seen.
            4800 BAI
            -The first nephilim are born, the results of angels and mortal races such as the humans and elves. This results in the Nephilim incident, at the end of which angels were barred from loving mortals by the archangels, the only time that they have ever really enforced their unofficial leadership.
            4400 BAI
            -The angels enter conflict with the summer court of the fey due to a conflict caused by the archangel Michael refusing the advances of Titania, Queen of the Summer Court. This conflict lasts for a decade and a half, and very nearly results in the destruction of the mortal world due to the forces unleashed by the competing powers. The gods step in and demand peace.
            4000 BAI
            -The angels battle demons for the first time, and do so with a savagery and passion never before displayed by the normally peaceful immortals. This leads some to believe that they were created to fight the demons, though no proof of such has ever been found.
            3500 BAI
            -The angels officially join the fey, resulting in slight alterations to their nature. Despite this, they owe no allegiance to the four courts, and are generally considered an unofficial court of their own. The alterations caused by this allow angels to reproduce with mortals and produce angels rather than nephilim.
            3000 BAI
            -The angels once more battle the demons, showing even greater hatred for their immoral opposites than before.
            -The first angel falls from grace during the invasion, becoming a demon. This phenomenon causes the angels to become much more cautious in their later dealings with demons and other supernatural powers.
            2000 BAI
            -The angels reduced presence is noted by the demons during their invasion, though they have little opportunity to capitalize on the reduced resistance to their attacks given the massively increased power of Matthias following his slaughter of many of the other gods. Unbeknownst to the demons, the angels had foreseen Matthias obliteration of the demonís forces and decided not to endanger their own in the crossfire.
            1000 BAI
            -The angels are ready for the demonís invasion, and prevent the demons from establishing a beachhead, thus all but avoiding the invasion. No mortals ever learn of this.
            2 BAI
            -The angels are unprepared and pre-occupied by other matters in the mortal world, mostly dealing with smaller groups of demons that have sprung up since the last invasion, and thus can devote few of their number to Artmirst.
            The Year of the Invasion
            -Some angels feel dark portents just before the aliens arrive, but none are prepared for what is to come. The angels scramble to defend the mortal world from the grey tide, but barring a few victories they are largely unable to push back the vastly superior numbers fielded by the invaders.

                    -Artorius Dovikulus Alvar, the first king, assumes power after the murder of his parents and sister by enemies of his family, adopting the last name Alvarien and thus creating his own House from the ashes of those of his parents. After taking his revenge, he begins a war that eventually unites all of Badaria.
