    Marvel at the perils and misfortunes our humble creations will face over the centuries, as we carve a path through history, and write the names of the gods upon the face of the earth.

    "Bill looked upon the world, and was disappointed with what he saw.

    This land was barren! It was flat and would not sustain life for long.

    He had no desire to create life. He must first create a land suitable for them. He would sequester and area of the continent first, free from the machinations of any life created by those other... less thoughtful goods.

    And lo, he did cause a great range of mountains to rise up from the land, and to seal off the southern point from the rest of the land. In his infinite wisdom, he named them The Southern Barrier, and then he rested, for the process had drained him, and the other gods would no doubt have a say in the shape of the land."

    ((12 for me))

    While his brother begins the deplorable path of isolation, another god looks down upon the land and sets to a different ideal.

    The land was still barren and flat, barring the intrusion of the mountain ridge to the south.
    There must be steps taken towards the spread of life, as well as the beginning of weather upon the world.

    A dry land cannot support future worshipers, can it?

    The first of the trees and plants is created, to support the myriad of smaller creatures within. Plants will go and spread, seed pulled on the winds.
    And to, where the food goes, so shall the animals follow.

    To aid this, the god reaches down in those same winds and dips them into the see, before leading them onwards to the forest.
    This way, the Wind shall bear water to the land, in the form of rain.
    The rain shall water the plants and animals, so that they may flourish further.

    A good start, towards a vibrant world.
    The god is pleased and rests.

    ((7 power))

    The third being to awake gave itself the name of En. For some time it thought, before a plan began to formulate in its mind of minds.

    Though it had only a moderate pool of power to draw from for now, it did not mind, for it had already set its thoughts ahead. These actions now only existed to lead to later progress. Focusing, En shaped the badlands before him to his liking, crafting a large expanse of water. The lake stood to give nourishment in the form of fish to the surrounding land, but this was only a short-term idea. A pool from which more ideas would spring just as life had within its waters.

    It would take time, and time was an endless thing.

    And so, it waited.

    Hmm? Someone is throwing god power around. I wonder what-meh, it's probably just-

    What is this solid thing? It's all... solid. Wait... this is one of those world things, isn't it?

    A fine patch of trees, some mountains... lake... nice, simple things.

    He he he...

    RISE, EARTH! Twist up out of the confines of the flat plane, into the air! Twists of matter, deep caves! I don't want something that will seem matching to the rest of the world, I want something that approaching travelers will see from miles away, and say to themselves, "What on earth is that... thing?" Great twists of metal and earth above the surface, tunnels into the ground!

    Well, what is truly natural? Is it made by god, and therefore natural? Is it made by The Lost One, and therefore wrong? That is a question that may be asked by more than I, some day.

    I wonder how the others will react to this...

    This land is promising.

    So many minds vying for control, so many gods ennacting their first steps of many layered plans. Here, life blooms! There, water bubbles! Mountains raise, spires construct!

    It was wonderous, beautiful...

    Shortsighted.

    For although Hydratus has come late to this soiree, and not yet established a power base in these realms, he sees the hidden lines, and is content. So let the others lay claims to shrinking swaths of land. He shall have the sea, and all its many depths and wonders.

    A force of will expands the bay, deepening its waters for what is to come. Another, and an island surges forth, full of lush grape vines and olive trees, enough to sustain an entire populace to come, and the animals they will no doubt wish to hunt.

    ((10, plus the extra 1 makes 11.))

    "Bill looked upon the works over his brothers and thought. They were well and good in their own way, but they showed no foresight. He turned from them and continued to toil, founding a deep lake fed by rivers from the mountains. And east of that, he created a bountiful land of hills and valleys, with many animals to farm and full of fruit and vegetables to eat. It was surely a fine land, well protected from the outside and open to the bounties of land and sea alike.

    Bill looked upon it and saw that it was good. Soon it would be ready for his people to settle, but still more preparations must be made.

    But Bill tired, and again he turned to the works of his brothers, eager to see what would become of the lands they were creating."

    With the exclusion of one seemingly lazy brother, it seems the other gods were focusing their attentions upon singular sections of the continent.
    Perhaps, initially, this would be a wise choice, for the future races of legacy.

    This god focuses once more on the small forest he had shaped, towards the storm clouds above.
    The waters were pooling within the trees, rather than spreading as desired. So, with a swipe of His will a great trench was carved into the land, to be filled with the falling waters of the sky.

    This was to be the first great river in the land.
    Here further life would flourish and spread, along its banks and within its depths.

    Briefly, He considers the vast swathes of emptiness that glare towards the heavens. They must wait, just a moment, for His own attentions. Perhaps the siblings can aid as well.
    For now, the god reaches into the earth between the forest and river, and pulls up the rocks within, into a large spire of jagged mountains and peaks.

    Their minerals would be of importance in later years.

    Once more, the god rests, turning His eyes to the rest of the land, back towards the blank wastelands and their ugliness.
    In time, they too will be corrected.

    ((Only 8))

    En took his time, gathering the energy to erect great mountains and create rains upon them to feed his lake. For now, the mountains would provide eyries for birds of prey and water to the lands around them, giving life. It was still not yet enough, but just as all things it would take time to truly take shape.

    The god, seeing that he was once again spent so soon, took this time to wait, watching as the others set about their work.

    Mm... the others... are making places full of life... not quite as aesthetic as my twisting area... but I will give them credit where it is due: Life is interesting!

    Indeed, I will admit that life is very interesting... the mammals, the reptiles, the insects and amphibians... The plants and fungus... all the really, really small things...

    Look at these tree things... the biggest examples of life... towering tall and mighty... I like them. Fine things. I hope the others won't mind if I make a forest myself...

    On the other hand, I like the fungi. Spores and roots, fine flesh... why not make these stronger, larger? Mighty and strong, tall as their trees... yes, why not turn the whole ecosystem upon it's head? Come now, fungal forest, out of the earth and toward the sky! What a fine perversion of the trees and plants.

    Hmm, what next? Perhaps I shall see if the others do something creative. I'm already mimicing what they do, no point to stop now.

    Drat and damnation, a mere shift of this continent and his plans face catastrophe. No matter, Hydratus has learned to do much with but a little.

    A shift of climate is required if these holdings are to be kept in the coming centuries. The olive trees, requiring a temperate climate, will not survive the freezing winds he casts upon them, but the grapes shall perservere, leaving a vine-rich country in its wake.

    Ice grapes and arctic marine mammals shall flourish for a time, until more power can be gained, and a more appropriate working of will can commence.

    "And lo, did mighty monuments rise up to each god, and Bill saw that they were fine and good. He himself was almost ready to seed the world with his people, but saw that still there were improvements to be made. And, being a kind god, he funneled a great hole into the earth, twisting and turning past rich deposits of iron embedded in the limestone. He named this cave Providence, for the iron from this cave would protect and shelter his people for many ages.

    But Bill thought. And Bill saw. And Bill realised that there was no mark on the land that was his that was not past The Southern Barrier. And so Bill reached deep into the ground, deeper even than Providence's many paths, and he pulled forth what he found there and moved it to the surface, so that all may bask in his brilliance. And so the volcano God's Blood Peak rose from the land, as a reminder to men and gods alike the strength of Bill."

    One last touch upon His lands and they shall be ready.

    The god places His gaze upon the bend in the river, near the forests and the peaks.
    It had life and was good.
    But it was not good.

    Reaching within Himself, the god pulls out His benevolence and casts it upon the land, filling the air with light and peace.
    Tranquility and comfort pervade the air.

    Not so different now, perhaps, but in time the creatures and plants that thrive in such calm will approach.


    And there the land is ready, it is time to look to the rest of the world.

    His gaze shifts east, to the barren wastes between the Southern Barrier and Their brother's more eccentric designs.
    With a brush of will, the earth is burdened with the seed of plants, in time to form the first major prairie of the world.

    Fertile, flat land. Once more, suitable for the propagation of life.


    The world is shaping nicely, and the god is pleased.
    A rest, once more.

    En's first constructions were almost complete, and he raised the last of the mountain ring that would encircle the lake. Stepping back for the moment, he admired the Work, pondering what was to come.

    He had created life-giving waters and fed them with the mountains, and soon the time would come to tend to the land around them.

    But as always, he could wait.

    Hmm... fields. fine, flat things. The unnamed god wants to spread a bit of life into the wasteland, make it... habitable.

    Be it far from me to stop him! Come over, my friend! There is a great plenty of continent for all of us! You seek to fill the land with fine places to live? I will aid you! What's a good thing to add...

    Ooh, I like those lake things. It should be simple enough, gouge out the land, fill it with liquid.

    Like acid! No, wait... that's stupid.

    A thick liquid, rich in... what do these living things need? Nutrients? Yes! A fine, thick goo full of all sorts of good stuff! Look, see how thick, juicy plants grow around the lake! look how they feed upon the air, the sun, the small animals that approach them from the wrong angle...

    Are plants supposed to move that much?

    Come to think of it, those miiiiight be complex and sometimes carnivorous slimes...

    Ah, perfect, his earlier troubles have been balanced by the addition of more sources of water, and now he has the power to enact the final crucial step to his plan.

    Another island rises from nothing into a swirling howl of biting, frozen winds that rushes from the heavens to meet it. Life, small and tentative for now, teems beneath the surface of the water in the midst of this triad, braving the cold waters with thick fat and hide to protect them.

    The early planning is complete, and now Hydratus may bide his time, and perhaps extend a hand to the efforts of his fellow gods.

    "Bill saw the eruption of the fungus to the north of his chosen site, and brooded. He knew his people would wish to avoid the Mad God's lands, stained as they were by his strangeness.

    They must go to sea then! To saner lands where trade might prosper! But for that his people would need wood, to create mighty vessels of trade and of war. They would also need safe ports, further off than their future home.

    So he turned to the sea, and with a wave of his hand islands sprung up, full of trees for lumber, with pristine beaches and sheltered bays, perfect for building all many of ships.

    With this done he rested for a time, planning how best to support the race he would soon introduce to this world."

    The others continue with Their projects.
    The lax brother finally contributes, aiding a sibling's work.

    More variety is needed in the world, to ensure proper diversity for the future.

    He turns his eye towards the blankness on the land and considers briefly.
    After a moment, He scoops out some of the warmth from the volcano, and some of the water from the sea.
    A hole is pulled into the world, to be filled with these two things.

    Small pieces of plant-life and related bits are inserted, to ensure the proper growth occurs.
    After a time, the god considers the newly created swamp, another first for the world. These contain yet another largely different set of life, from the other locations.

    Slightly more effort to produce, unfortunately.
    He satisfies himself with this product and once more rests.

    The world continues to move closer to the Ideal.

    Seeing more strange features of the land springing up in the world, En was invigorated his his pursuits to mould the land.

    En saw his pool of life-giving blue, and decided that now it was time to dot the land with green to match. Building his power, he lay upon the world a large forest of tropical trees - a jungle rich with large insects, birds and primates.

    Upon review of other worlds, Some of the subtleties of world making have become apparent. A plan has begun to form in my consciousness (or whatever it is gods have) and I will do my best to see it through. while I would love to further mar the land with abominate copies of the others' works, I must first expand the fungal forest-

    Oh, hey, look at that. The quiet one already did that. Thanks, bro! Metafistbump.

    NOW I AM FREE TO USE MY GODLY ENERGY TO DO WHATEVER I VERY WELL PLEASE!

    That swamp thing is nice. It's all... swampy. And full of dangerous swamp things. But... I can't help but notice that the animals graze on the plants... just like they do everywhere else. Even in my fungal forests, animals have a distinct advantage over things that can't move.

    I shall make a swamp, then. A crimson swamp, where this is turned upon it's head. Yes! Come now, plants! Feast upon the fleshy stalks! Drain the blood from the succulent fruits! Try not to fall prey to the long keratin spines!

    What? Plants get thorns. It's only fair.

    Good, all was good, and Hydratus was pleased with the bounty he had provided. Now all that remained was to create someone to provide for. There were ways to do this, many arduous and taxing ways, but there was one chance to create intelligent life using a proxy, that would significantly relieve the strain on his power.

    So rise, mighty beast of the depths, and become the avatar of my whim! Let your many apendages sink through the fabric of the land and bring to it the artificers of true creation. Shape and mould their appearance to be alike to yours, bless their brains to hold intelligence that shall one day surpass your own.

    And then slumber, for a time. Return to your rightful rest, knowing that you have pleased your father.

    As his last act before returning to his plots, Hydratus blesses the final island in the trio with plantlife, as he had with the other two.

    ((Spent 10 on Create Avatar, then 2 on Command Avatar to create a race of cuttlefish based bipeds, with a sect devoted to the "Beast from the Deeps" Avatar. Spent another 3 on Shape Land to give the final island grapevines, leaving me with 1.

    "Bill saw the people that Hydratus had created, and saw much value in them. He taught them that through helping others, they may rise above their stations in life. Unfortunately, not all would listen to reason, and only a small number in them headed the call. They banded together and formed a tight-knit group who promised assistance to all who came to them, and Bill named them The Guidance of The Gods.

    Bill saw that this was good, and watched over them as they progressed through life, and had sons and daughters to pass their legacy onto.

    Beauty and life continues to spread across the land, even the first of intelligence has appeared.

    But there are few scars, as of now.
    There must always be scars, it is a consequence of growth.
    The volcano in the west is the closest thing to a scar.
    Now it is the east's turn.

    The god focuses deep into the world, willing its warmth and turmoil closer to the surface.
    At His behest, the land burns and cracks, its color boiling away only to be replaced by the red glow of the earth's belly. The ground bends and ripples, making way for the land's flaming blood to reach the surface.

    A magma field is formed.

    A new order, you say? What a delightful concept, and one that Hydratus shall silently praise Bill for as he turns his eye towards greater things.

    Again working through his Eye in the depths, the god of seas encourages his flock to construct a mighty city beneath the waves, securing this land from the others before there are any worth securing it from.

    Now they may truly be called the first race, the Kyrell, a name, as well as the first word of their language, meaning safety. In this city of Caryule, both the Order of the Deep and the Guidance of the Gods shall be allowed to flourish, intermingling freely and bringing knowledge and temperance to the race.

    And now, for the first step of many. Acting directly, Hydratus blesses city of Caryule with knowledge of deep and ancient secrets, magic that shall flow and bend with the currents of time.

    That done, and his power nearly spent, the sea god rests once more.
