    Default Lords of Creation: Boundless Wonder, Endless Strife. [IC]

    There was nothing... a blank void where not even time existed. One of trillions of universes that remained untouched by the bringer of being. This, was its time. As time dawned, the first second ticked into being. Explosions of color and light flung themselves to the far corners of this reality. The Creator had arrived, and brought with him creation.

    Creation creates.... and what it created were 9 forming concepts. Holding onto the presence of creation, those 9 entities coalesced into beings of great power.

    The Creator spoke, an unmistakable meaning from an unfathomable word. None could hope to comprehend the word, but all knew its meaning. "Create." it said, and that meaning reverberated through the void.

    The forming shapes felt themselves now, becoming the first of the gods. Lords of creations. Stewards of this universe.

    The raw stuff of creation burst into being, flowing throughout the void. Some of it consolidate, spiraling, fusing together into a world at the very center of the void. A world for the newborn gods to shape.

    The first to form shape, the first lord of creation, steward of this universe was a formless one. A everlasting desire. Eternal Want. It took the shape of a robe, of a cloak, covering the new born world. Craving took the form of a hood, an empty one full of yearning. It looked upon the barren landscape of the first world and mourned solemnly.

    There is nothing.

    Isanloff, longed for there to be. . . something. Yet he lamented the fact that whatever came into being would also wish and thirst... so he paused. He stayed his formless hands, the long reach of his cape, fluttering aimlessly in the void. He paused, and waited. For starvation was always looming.

    It started with a light. At first pure and white, it flowed from one corner of nothing to the next without real purpose. And then it grew. Each bloom a violet stain on an empty sky until finally so many filled the void that they turned upon one another. Each flower torn apart in a glorious cascade of golden ichor burning blue and silent in the folds of the beginning of time. And then with a rush of purpose the creator's words gave it form. And as it entered the world the beast screamed. For it had a secret.

    In whatever manner time flowed in the beginning of days this new form began to gather itself. Ever shifting, it never quite found solace in any form but rather moved between them like liquid light. Finally it found a form that it could hold. Soft golden coils spun neatly in the emptiness of the world and newly crafted eyes looked out; searching for signs of existence beyond its own.

    A Third arose, in his brother's shadow. Without form, simply existing as a form of will, Halasht streched out his limbs. Vast was their bounty! Vast was their oyster! Halasht looked to his side, and lo, there was another. He turned, and spoke to him.

    Brother, why is there nothing? He asked. Why stay your hand?

    Suddenly, an urge came over him. He looked out to the emptyness, and saw that it was empty. Its mere prensense taunted him, calling out to him, saying that it would always be such. Surely, that would be changed!

    Then I say to you, emptyness- BE! And so he streched out his hand, and created something.

    Words rang through the void deafening the newly formed god as he staggered with the force of new possibilities. As he spoke the area below his eyes folded in on itself until mouth and tongue appeared to give form to his thought. Brother... for we are of the same creator. What purpose do you find in such creation?

    Look at it! It stands there, and mocks me! "Your actions are useless" It jeers, "For I am the void and I am infinite, while you are just one!"

    Halasht descended upon the planet he had helped craft, still a force of will.

    I intend to prove it otherwise! My actions shall NOT be in vain! I will rise to the challenge issued by it, and surpass the goal one-hundred fold!

    Merolle first whirred into existance as numberless brass cogs, winking into being from naugh and connecting to turn one another, then came bronze frames and bolts, and copper wire and finally adamantine plating and mithril filigree. This creaking efigy roared to life with a thunder as a storm erupted within it, its caustic waters painting the thing green and blue.

    From this origin, it walked to its brethren.

    But surely, by creating simply one thing you have consumed the void, for it cannot truly exist when even one particle of matter makes up the universe.

    But where there is nothing, there is void! Halasht said. His will bent down, and tried to scoop up the soil. A hand formed, picking up the soil.

    He turned, and held it out. Regardless, by your definition I have succeeded! LOOK! See how my actions have changed it so? And look around! As far as you can see, my changes have had lasting impressions!

    The robe that was Isanloff began to pull into itself, so instead of a unknowingly vast cloak that covered the first world, it became something less than what it was. A form that the other deities would not be frightened of, for starvation was frightening.

    Want gave off a constant chill, a frost that was cold even in the void. Isanloff couldn't control it. Those around him would always be for Want of warmth, even with heavy coats, they will always want something more.

    Yet despite this solemnity Isanloff was happy - Isanloff saw the first world become, something more - yet it still sought and wanted. It needed more. Yet he didn't know what to give it - not yet, all he knew was that desire was a constant. And desire was good, but not great. It needed to be measured. Carefully doled out with a spoon.

    The empty indigo hood turns to Reisen.

    The void has enough for itself within its expanse Brother. Let him paint upon this empty canvas. Yet I agree with our verdigris Brother; creation should be not be created on whims, but carefully organized so it would fit together and work . . . as if it were numberless gears interlocked.

    The land started to shake as if it was about to explode, cracks appeared in the surface, hot air emaning from them. After that everything sttoped for a brief moment.

    An enormous explosion could be heard, a part of the land shattered as a huge form started emerging from within the land. An earthquake craked the surface evenmore in its epicentre and the land itself started to grow upwards. A mountain was abruptly formed and form it a violent fountain of lava in the form of a volcano. From it a bright form emerged, flying into the void, and joining the other forces.

    I have come to the call of the creator, you shall call me Ceniza.
    Between the cloud of burning ashes that the boing called Ceniza was, one could briefly see a female body in flames. Yet without limbs or face, as it was always changing.

    The eruption covered a good part of the land with a cloud of smoke and ashes.
    The land had now a prominent point of light and heat, and small rivers of magma flowed continuosly from the fiery mountain before becoming stone.

    The new god eyed the fourth member curiously. He was unlike the first three. His form had come as part of his being, and not merely a representation of it. The green color of his form seemed already old though they stood at the beginning. As if it had been caused by the pull of time. It was thoroughly unnerving.
    And then came the cold. As what had spoken began to assume it's form the first stirrings of desire began to appear in the core of the beast. And that too troubled him, for he knew a secret.
    And then the fire burst from the earth below and the new god felt the heat of the world carry away the cold. And in that moment he began to understand the purpose of such desire. For at last light shown upon creation.

    Halasht looked upon the volcano, and saw that the heat it spewed forth turned his creations to ash. A grin spread upon his face, as he mustered his will about him.

    Hah, one would match me wit for wit, power for power? I accept your challenge, then!

    Summoning his power, he brought his oceans to surround the volcano, making it an island unto its own, not of small size.

    Yet, the ash it spewed covered the sky. He brought forth wind into the world, creating a barrier so that the ash could become contained.

    Ceniza then looked down to the land and noticed the place that gave her birth, and how the God not yet named put effort into modeling it.

    The pure force of life is not there to be controlled or contained, yet it is your choice to use its power for your benefit.
    It brings death and destruction if you understimate it, but it also brings fertility and renewal.

    Merolle beheld the world below with his eyeless gaze, stroking his faceplate with a segmented tendril.

    "I question the quality and quantity of the materials used. Let us try something to greater effect."

    The Verdigris Legion breaks down to its endless components, releasing the acrid storm within to billow down towards the world, lightning crackling within its dark clouds.

    The storm falls down upon the world, a caustic rain sizzling with heavy metals in every leaden drop, sinking into what land it can find and gathering in the depths of the sea to rise above the waves as the seeds of archipelagos and continents.

    When the universe was created, it seemed perfect, for how could such perfection be imperfect? Yet, there was the fatal flaw, a single strand of creation out of place. This was Carcino, as this flaw cascaded into a deity of its own. He stood there, and used his new eyes to gaze into the void. And the void beckoned him to grow, to spread his essence through the planes. All of them.

    He felt his might, and found something so perfect, it made his eyes weep. It was the planet, such a beautiful thing, he must be a part of it. He appeared by it and opened a hole to the core, before dropping a single cell into its depths. This created the Tumor, a growth that resides in the core of the planet, both organic, and inorganic. It starts he size of an apple, but it will continue to grow. Quite possibly forever. It is a tumor in the fabric of the universe itself, and thus is linked to his origin point,the original mistake. One day it will become malignant, but for now...It will remain benign.

    That could have been beautiful if we could have seen the metallic rain shine... let's not make the same mistake twice.

    Moving apart her other god brothers, far into the void, Ceniza seems to disappear in the distance. When no eyes can she her anymore, the darkness of the void ceases to be.

    A light brighter than anything ever seen emerges from the deep as a colossal ball of fire, magma, rock and energy takes form, bringing light into existence.

    Ceniza returns tired but happy, if flames could express such feelings.

    The bright sun would help us witness the things to be and to cease be.

    A shadow passes over the newly formed sun. And lo, came around, a shining beacon, eventually showing its form as the most beautiful being ever seen by any eyes yet. But it cast a shadow over the sun, and despite its light, the world was slightly darker.

    Hail, brothers and sisters. A magnificent oppurtunity lies before us. We will be are the Lord's of a new world. It seems you have already begun, and quite well I must say.

    Belsheroth had stood apart from his brothers and sisters, not yet feeling a need to participate in their work.
    But the light of the Sun pierced his eyes, consuming him in agony.
    In suffering, he sought to block the light, and as such, he created a dark sphere to shield the world from the Sun's rays.

    It was childish, and he regretted his actions as soon as they were finished, so he altered his will and declared that the Dark Moon (as he chose to call it) will block the Sun only on the solstices.

    Isanloff breathed from his cloak, the breath coming from no actual orifice, his breath forming frost and then melting from the newly formed sun. Desire and want... though were there, this eternal hunger! This world was messy. There was no order. Carcino's tumor irritated Isanloff - not that he begrudged the god's creation, for everything starved for attention - it just made no sense to him to create an object that may at any moment take away everything from everyone else. It was important for everyone to have enough.

    There is no plan brothers and sisters. This world already clashes. Already the seed of its ruin slumbering within it. And it has only been but a passing moment since our creator spoke. There needs to be a guiding hand. Perhaps I can help.

    With that the frost of Isanloff's breath began to coalesce within his robe, the frost began to take shape much as the new born gods have done before. Thus robed in Isanloff himself was a pale skinned, cloaked man with blank white eyes.

    The man stepped out of the cloak. Ambition - the driving force of Desire.

    Brothers and sisters, this is my son, Daazo- perhaps he may guide us in creation.

    As the deity known as Daazo formed from the frost of his father's breath, he felt the power and energy only a god feels flowing through him. He instantly knew he wanted more, needed more. Daazo looked upon what had been created so far like a man contemplated a chessboard. He saw the world, the sun, the moon and the deities around it, basking in their creations upon the planet. It was his blessing, and perhaps his curse, that he never stopped to admire the beauty of the world, only thinking on how to control it. Lastly, Daazo gazed upon his father, Isanloff. No notion of gratitude or even any kind of 'family' loyalty even crossed his mind, only the burning ambition, or even desire, for more of the power he craved. Truly Ambition has no bounds.

    Merolle grinds and crackles at Isanloff's proposal.

    "A newborn, guide his elders? Would you have proud steel yield in a battle with dirt as well? It is practically offensive, brother."

    The Verdigris Legion opened six of his arms and stretched his palms wide, many-hued metal dust coalescing in between his hands in the image of the world.

    "You wish for order, that I agree, but gods will arise, and they will work their whim before defering to anyone else. A leader for the world is a most unfit craft. Thus I speak, as an artisan most skilled."

    Merolle begins coalescing stray dust into great rings around the world, three in total, but this seens to be his mind straying, for he speaks not of these shapes.

    "The world is empty of sapience, but materials being assembled for a great work. It is much prefered to finish assembling these and then work on the ordering of creation than to hustle through processes."

    Passively enough, the great rings of Merolle's imagery form in the vaguest of senses upon the heavens beneath the feet of the gods, countless parts of unknowable purpose and numinous design, assembling into these shapes of their volition, or Merolle's at any rate. Soon the gods stand not upon naugh but upon the verdigris bronze floor of Merolle's domain.

    "Pardon my sudden assembly, but I tire of standing in the void. Welcome to Geasa, The Chains of the World."

    Truly, it is strange that we should allow the youngest of us to guide our actions.
    However, I am willing to allow him the chance to prove himself before us.
    In the meantime, I wish to continue to walk the shadows of the world, and shall thus, descend from Geasa in search of a suitable task.

    Isanloff slowly turned to Merolle, a being he felt a close connection to - for his want of order was much like his own. Yet Isanloff admonished him

    Guide is not to lead. Order means . . . chains of authority. Chains that my son was meant to pull. He is not to force us, but to advise, to perhaps create a Bureaucracy that will slow down creation so that we may look calmly from your bronze rings and contemplate the direction of creation without haste.

    Isanloff slowly breathed again the frost forming within him. A man cloaked within Isanloff himself was born from that cold starving breath. A man, withered by dark magic, but with a youthful spark to his eyes, steps forth. He wears elaborate and ostentatious robes of his own, different than his father's plain indigo being. The robes flow in a palette of dark and dreary colours, with a cowl that conceals dark, tangled strands of hair.

    This is Morgash. He is also meant to guide us. These young sons of mine will stay our hands. As elders . . . as elders of order, we are meant to prevent the whims of the gods from destroying creation - we are meant to shape it. So far creation was formed without thought to its continuity. We are stewards - not masters of this universe. I fear that what we will create will divide us and then divide into itself. I only ask for forward planning, if the rest of the gods rush, i will not stand in their way - I will only seek to minimize the harm.

    Isanloff's robe expanded throughout Geasa.


    As of now, I will ask my sons in joining me here - and help you create an ordered existence.

    Belsheroth looked up into the black emptiness of the night sky beyond the Rings that produces Geasa and the faint shadow of the Dark Moon.
    It was lonely on the world, and it was dark.
    Even though Belsheroth hated light, he knew he wanted some now.
    As such, he strode into the day and let the sunlight fall upon his unshielded eyes. It was agony, unbearable in every way, but soon he had captured the essence of light.
    Armed with this new tool, he returned to the night and let the essence he had gathered diffuse through the sky. empowered by his will.
    The light swirled around for a bit, but soon coalesced into thousands of stars in random patterns. They could be arranged later.

    Morgash bowed to his elder gods, his robes flowing in an invisible breeze. "Hail, Father." he whispered softly, his cowl blowing in the breeze.

    Rising, Morgash gazed upon the world, and then out to the great dark beyond. He watched the Dark Moon as it drifted through the heavens, and watched at bright sun radiate heat and light. With a wave of his hand, Morgash vanished, reappearing far above the world. He examined it, pondering many different courses of action to take. Finally, he had seen enough. He whispered a word of power, vanishing and reappearing before the Elder gods once more. "Father, Elders... I have come to a conclusion."

    Kneeling down on the rings, Morgash conjured a small green flame, which took the shape of the world below the gods. He started to draw sigils in the air, a total of nine of them. When he finished, he spoke. "I have observed what I can, and have concluded three things. First, the world is young, and it's fate is by far uncertain. Two, it lacks even the most basic of life, without this, we cannot hope for our creations to survive. And Three, the lands are scattered. They are too far spread apart, and too few in number. If we truly wish to create responsibly, we should focus first on forging the lands. Then we should create the support system for life. Plants, Animals, Trees. And finally, we should then, and only then, forge mortalkind."

    "I paint myself as no lord, through I know much of it, for leading falls under my purview, for I am the chain, and I shall see who will hold and who will be held."

    Hands clasped behind his back, Merolle folded his wings over his shoulders like a cloak of blades.

    "Your counsel and aid are, accepted, however, if put in these better terms. Guidance is a step from leadership and it too is a right to be earned, I shall suffer no claim of mandate that is not properly backed by a fitting demonstration of right."

    A lid opens in the center of Merolle's faceplate, and once again the projection of the world appears.

    "What then, do you suggest, brothers, sisters and nephews. How shall this creation be ordered?"

    Despite the absence of his physical presence, Belsheroth would not be foolish enough to completely ignore the actions of his fellows.
    Still, he felt that he did not belong in their council. However, he knew that order must be maintained.

    The exact method of achieving this aim eluded him at this time.
    But, despite the light, he still felt a bit lonely.
    He mixed some minerals from Ceniza's volcano together into a thick sludge and sang same some life into it. It wasn't much, but the pale green slime that resulted was very much alive. He set it down in the oceans in the daylight and willed it to grow.

    Daazo thought on his brother's words. The idea of ordered creation made sense, and would lead to a more stable world. He concentrated for a moment and created a continent on the surface of the planet. In the southern portion of the land vast plains stretched on and on, while in the north a lush forest sprung up, accompanied by dozens if not hundreds of different types of flora and fauna. Birds, amphibians, mammals, and a number of different vertebrates and invertebrates lived in a state of ecological harmony with the myriad of trees and plants in the area.

    After finishing his work on the planet, Daazo traveled back to Geasa.

    "Perhaps this can serve as a sort of example for our creations on this world..." Daazo said to the other Gods on Geasa.

    Isanloff ponders his second son's advice. And turns to Merolle. The robe tears itself and gracefully wraps itself around limbs that do not exist, till a bandaged muscular indigo man with an empty cowled hood addresses the geared god. With authority and purpose Hunger speaks.

    My son speaks wisdom. An ecosystem. Plants, animals to pollinate them, animals to graze upon them, predators to keep those animals population in check so there will be enough resources for all. Predators for those predators, and so on. And for the predator on top, we should extend our working brother Belsheroth's organisms into diseases - to keep the top predator in balance and prevent him from over hunting and consuming. Resources must be carefully managed. This is wise advice from my son and myself - would you act on it - or would you demand a demonstration of aptitude from him. Or would you question the competency your elder as well?

    Isanloff was slightly upset at his first son's haste. Yet his creation made sense, it followed the plan. So he extended his arms towards his sons and forward to Merolle.

    As you see, together we can create a creation that would continue on without breaking apart, crumbling by lack of internal logic. Now that we can plan and advise one another - we can craft. We can be the artisans you describe. We can be engineers. I purpose a union. A union of laborers. Laborers that will build creation, architects that follow a plan instead of whims.

    With that Isanloff moved his hands to create an Orichalcum Icosahedron. The Orichalcum Icosahedron floated to the epicenter of the four gods in Geasa.

    This is the symbol of the union. The Sacrosanct Directors. I ask each of you to join, and any who believe in order. Together we shall help keep existence logical - consistent - and most importantly self-sufficient. That, perhaps is the most important requirement for this universe.
