We came from a different place, a forgotten world of our own perhaps, in some ancient realm. Oh, you speak of the Njord? It is true, they came from far away, long ago, but they were not, as you might believe, the first. When the first Njord set foot on these shores, the ancient towers and dark keeps, and the stone mountains of the desert were all waiting for them, as were the Runes. Very few know of them, and little is known about them. I heard about it from a mad priest many, many years ago, and I’ll tell you now, what he told me.
Humans first arrived long, long ago, by some means we now cannot even conceive of. The world was different then. Its reflection was clean and pure, its lands not yet divided, and perhaps most significant of all, the desert was absent- there were simply rolling plains, for endless miles.
Of course, we changed all this. Not just due to how we act, felling trees and building cities, channeling rivers and building dams, but how we are. We humans changed this world, to its core, and it will never be the same again. Whether we should be blessed or damned for it is a matter for the gods, for it was they who in the old times started it all. But, before them, came the Runes.
Such uproar! What a surplus of the faithful we have, settle down please, I will explain it all in time. Suffice to say, man created the runes when he came here, and then came to master them in time. This process is continuing, even now, but I digress…
