Last of the Brood
A Peaceful Future
The sages write history very clearly. Going as far back as anyone knows the only being in the natural world was Yggdrasil. The Yggdrasil was all and everything, it’s purpose unknown. Craving it’s energy, the Primordials tore the Yggdrasil apart, weakening it. From its essence they created the natural world as we know today. To fight back, each of them created a new species to serve as their avatar. The Yggdrasil created the Brood race, the Primordials created dragons. The two fought and nearly destroyed the natural world until Erathis, seeing the chaos, descended from her pantheon and created the Dragonborn who slew both races into extinction. The world was placed in the hands of the gods and free to proceed with its own evolution.
But what good is this information? Wars continued, civilizations grew, races fought, the weak suffered and strong ruled. Society continued ignoring these ancient footnotes leaving them to dusty scholars to bicker over. Their meager discoveries would mean little to the common man who still had to toil in the greater part of the world.
No less common was the family of Reis, who lived tucked away in the woods of Shallow Lake. Considered a band of no good trouble makers, Reis, Shiela and the lost souls that lived with them, stayed in a water mill off the Crater Creek. Sure, rough winters called for the occasional theft or con but it was a relatively peaceful life. No great war ravaged the countryside. No mighty deity threatened to destroy the universe. It was a land governed on the fringe of an empire free to let individuals make names for themselves.
But the world around them was changing. Not suddenly, but subtly. Soon the family would learn that the gentle woods of Shallow Lake would offer no protection.
