This post might be a little shorter than expected, but I was thinking about how every world has a creation myth. At least, I think they should. We have so many tales about the birth of the world that it’d be odd for a fictional world to not consider it. Especially if there are gods who are probably responsible. Windemere is such a place.
The first deity was Solar who went about creating Windemere and moons by following a dream. Nobody knows where he came from or what drove him to create the world, but he did his job and went into a slumber. He left behind his children who are the primordial deities. These were led by Vir the Evil God, Ult the Good Goddess, Tavon the Despair Goddess, Canst the Hope God, and Gola the Magic Goddess. As time continued and they created the organisms, landmasses, and systems, more deities appeared. Some came from Solar’s dreams while others came about out of need. Soon after this, the first Destiny God was named and would continue working with mortals until insanity set in. This is what caused some trouble, but that goes beyond the creation myth.
Mortals don’t have much history prior to their existence and the basic ‘Solar and his children made the world’. The rest tends to vary by species because they all appeared at different times. The dragons, demons, and angels were first with disastrous results. The demons were pure evil and wiped out the pure good angels while the neutral dragons remained out of the fight. This event caused the creation of the Chaos Void to keep the demons away and the dragons were used as a basis for the other species. This isn’t counting the more monstrous races. Now, the next attempt was the creation of the Fireskins who helped give ideas for other species. Out of the big races of modern Windemere, Dwarves and humans came next. They were followed by gnomes, halflings, calicos, and orcs. Vampires were an accident that also lead to the discovery of necrocasting. Finally, the Hejinn were created and would go on to kick over the chessboard until they were defeated. For those new to Windemere, they are the original, demon-tainted elves that the current species were born from.
So, what does this have to do with Charms of the Feykin? All life was originally created in one area, which very few mortals have seen. Only special individuals can reach the Birthing Lands and they have to do it a specific way. At least one champion is about to find themselves in this holy place. Though, there’s no way to know what is still up there waiting for company. After all, not every creation of the gods was a success and they had to put the failures somewhere.
