Before Lyorta there was raw power and essence unformed and darkness, constantly warring with itself. The powers swirled in infinity without time. This chaos was called the Tempest. Its strangeness could never be known or understood. From the fires of the Tempest came forth beings with a will of their own; the Primordial Gods. However as they formed they were destroyed and sucked back into the Tempests fires. Those that fought to exist beyond the Tempest stood alone among the chaos. A number of gods found themselves inside the chaos among each other. They then tore from the darkness and escaped the fires of the Tempest. Yet still the fires of the Tempest sought to consume its gods.
