§4 ·ï¡÷¡ï· §r§0 In the first cycles of the First Age of the First World, when the lands were still young and the people new, there was a small chasm that many called home. For a long time, the people of this §r§0 §4 ·ï¡÷¡ï·

§4 ·ï¡÷¡ï· §r§0 chasm worked hard and worked together, content and carefree to a fault. To their doom. §r§0 Darkness crept in, unnoticed. §r§0 §r§0 §4 ·ï¡÷¡ï·

§4 ·ï¡÷¡ï· §r§0 Sensing a weakness in the people, it mani- fested itself within the chasm, gaining power and strength with each passing day. Per- ceiving its time had come, the darkness then struck hard and §r§0 §4 ·ï¡÷¡ï·

§4 ·ï¡÷¡ï· §r§0 Their home in ruins and their population decimated, the sur- viving chasmfolk be- came the founders of many new places, which would, in turn, grow into homes for many more to come. §r§0 §4 ·ï¡÷¡ï·

§4 ·ï¡÷¡ï· §r§0 And one of the chasmfolk remained near the cradle of life, creating a new home away from the ruins. He was called SomethingSaucy. Soon other refugees and people new to the §r§0 §4 ·ï¡÷¡ï·
