An era known only in legend, song, and clerical scripture. During this time, the world of Krynn was forged and the mortal races were created.
High God Awakens
Into the chaos of creation, there comes thought and being - the High God, who draws the plans for a new realm and writes them in the Tobril, a book that contains all truth.
The Gods Are Called
Into the Beyond, the High God calls for those who can aid him in creating his new realm. Two beings answer; two siblings of incredible power, one of light and one of darkness. The king and queen of wyrms, Paladine, the Platinum Dragon, and Takhisis, the Dragon of All Colors and of None, agree to help the High God in creation.
Gilean is Drawn Forth
Out of chaos, out of time, the High God summons a third deity: Gilean, the greatest of sages. Of the three gods who answer the High God's summons, onl Gilean is deemed worthy of bearing the Tobril. Gilean accepts the Tobril, swearing to serve the balance between Good and Evil for all time. The High God departs, allowing the three deities to begin creation.
Reorx and the Companion Gods Come:
The three gods summon helpers. Paladine summons his companion, Mishakal, goddess of Healing, Majere, deity of Introspection, and Branchala, god of Song. Mishakal bears two children to Paladine, the twin deities Kiri-Jolith, the war deity of Good, and Habbakuk, the Fisher King.
Takhisis summons her own consort, Sargonnas, the god of Vengeance, as well as Morgion, the deity of Disease, and Hiddukel, the god of Greed. Takhisis also summons Chemosh, the Lord of the Undead, whom she has saved from destruction in the Void of Chaos. Takhisis bears Sargonnas a daughter, Zeboim, the Sea Queen.
Gilean summons Reorx, the Crafter, and two sets of companions: Sirrion of the Flame and Shinare, the goddess of Wealth, along with Chislev, the goddess of Nature, and Zivilyn, the deity of Wisdom. Together, the gods begin to create the world.
Krynn is Made
Reorx shapes a great globe, separating the land from sea, light from dark, heave from earth. The other deities bless Krynn with plants, beast, season, and weather. Each god works separately from one another, yet together craft a world of true beauty.
Dragons are Made
Paladine and Takhisis guide Reorx, creating five rulers for the world. Drawn from the raw elements, encased in frames of metal, theses are the first dragons. Takhisis, craving to be the absolute power of Krynn, secretly corrupts theses five dragons, tarnishing their metals and creating five chromatic dragons in her own image.
Good Dragons are Made
Mourning the corruption and loss of his children, Paladine entreats Reorx to craft monuments to the lost dragons, forged from precious and beautiful metals. Heartsick, Paladine breathes life into theses monuments, trying to replace the children that were stolen from him.
Gods, dragons, beasts of the world, even darkness and light themselves war over Takhisis's treachery. Chaos swirls, threatening to destroy the world the deities had worked so hard to create. Seeing the harm they have caused, the gods withdraw into the Beyond creating the Dome of Heaves, the Hidden Vale, and the Abyss, where they can live and love without interfering with one another.
In the silence following the All-Dragons War, there comes a strange, crystalline song. Following the source of the beautiful music, the gods discover that the stars, sparks created from Reorx's forge when he created the world, are alive. These stars are seen to possess incredible potential.
Once more, war erupts across the heavens. Creation is once more threatened as the deities war over the future of the star spirits. The gods of Light wish to nurture and lead the star spirits. The deities of Darkness seek to bind and control them. The gods of Balance seek to only set the spirits free.
The Balance Restored
Hearing the Battle, the High God returns from the Beyond. Wrathful at the fighting, the High God puts a stop to it, proclaiming that each family of the deities could offer the spirits one gift and then must let them be. The gods of Light give the spirits physical bodies to master the world and enjoy life's pleasures. The deities of Darkness curse the start spirits with weakness, want, and mortality, that they might turn to Evil to break those inflicted bonds. The gods of Balance give the star spirits free will, that they will be able to choose their own destinies.
Time of Birth
And so, the first races are born to the world: graceful elves, beloved children of good; stony ogres, powerful, beautiful and cruel; and humans, granted short life-spans but filled with the need to exceed their limitations. Each race is created with an equal capacity to love and hate, build and destroy. The deities allow their chosen children to walk the earth.
The Last Gods
To seal their agreement to nevermore make war upon Krynn, each family of gods create a child. To Paladine and Mishakal, Solinari the Light is born. Takhisis and Sargonnas birth Nuitari, the Dark. From Gilean's mind springs Lunitari the Red. The three deities are represented by three moons that are set to orbit around the world, standing between the realms of heaven and earth.
Birth of the Graygem
Through the cunning of Hiddukel, Reorx is tricked into crafting a gemstone to help anchor neutrality in the world. Secretly, Reorx decides to try and capture a fragment of Chaos without the gem, hoping that it will give the gem enough power to preserver the balance. Unfortunately, Reorx trapped more than just a fragment of Chaos, he captured the deity entirely. The Graygem becomes imbued with a dim sentience and a driving need to create change and chaos wherever it may. Reorx placed the Graygem within the moon, Lunitari, hiding it from the other gods and hoping that it would perform as desired from the safe distance involved. Reorx kept the fact that he had trapped Chaos from the other deities. Seeing the potential the Graygem possesses, Lunitari and her brothers, Solinari and Nuitari, conspire to use the Graygem to bring magic into the world, agreeing to bestow their own gift unto mortals-the gift of magic.
