Eden and Nod

The home of the Aevi, the magical races of Earth, and the stage upon which the Patriarch, whose creation would change the fate of the world, first let Its presence be known.

This Epoch gives rise to some of the greatest myth cycles of Humanity. The tales of Atlantis, dragons, and the rise and fall of the First Race of Man. The true stories have been corrupted with retelling, with editing for the sake of the lowest common denominator.

Eden was, indeed, a lush land of verdant hills and valleys wild, but it was far more than a simple garden. The Kingdom of Eden, founded by the Aevi and inherited by the godman Eidom, the All-Father, was the realization of a lasting peace between all the peoples of Gaia. It was a kingdom that could have, perhaps should have, lasted forever. It seems that jealousy is, perhaps, more powerful than love and violence more enduring than peace.

Eidom

  • First king of Eden for whom Excalibur was originally forged.

  • The Allfather. All Races claim direct descent, all Races claim Eidom (Adam) was "one of us", making their Race the progenitor. Nobody knows for certain. The only sure thing is that Eidom was not Human. Humans appeared long after. Eidom was a race unto himself, the Firstborn, a godman. All sapient life on Earth (and at least one other world) display traits inherited from him.

Ov

  • First Queen of Eden

  • The Allmother. Some claim she is the Stigmatriarch, but no evidence either confirms or denies this. She was not born, but was either created by or for Eidom.

Lilutu

  • First consort/wife of King Eidom
