On the Table of Fate
Golden Age of the Demi-Humans
This time period is also known as the 1st age. At some point in time following creation, the first pantheon of gods appeared in the world. Most scholars hold that the gods themselves were given life by the maker, however some more esoteric astral mages espouse the belief that they immigrated from some other plane of existence. Whatever the case, this pantheon created the first creatures for the world, populating it with beings made in their image.
For a long time, this small number of creatures multiplied within the new world, which was large enough to allow the various races to exist without coming into contact with others of conflicting alignments. Many marvelous achievements, both light and dark, were said to have emerged during this time.
