and the thunderous sky did weep with tears of blood.
With the cracking of earth did the All-Father Turn,

And with Him left his Elder Children, and
for the first time, Man was left without Gods.
The World itself was Shattered, splintered and torn asunder, and
the cities became unto planes and the planes scattered through the Heavens like spilled and forgotten grain.
 Thus ended the Age of Kings, and began the Age of Strife that is our own.
