The Dead Gods

It is said that the Beings we call the Dead Gods, were not Gods at all, but were just Beings of energy. They evolved through the chance convergence of Grim and Radiant energy, two different forces. Each random melding of Grim and Radiant energy created a new consciousness. After a time, each consciousness grew self aware. This continued over eons until all the large pools of energy were used. These new Beings eventually discovered each other. Their nature was made of energy, and they existed in what we now call the spirit world. By human standards they were extremely powerful, but they were not Gods. For by definition Gods cannot die, and yet these Beings eventually perished, torn asunder by the results of their own pride.

In time these Beings discovered how to harness the very powers that created them, Grim and Radiant energy. They decided that they were great and all powerful. So they set out to create something new by design unlike the chance of their creation. After eons of planning, and imagination, they created the first physical place in existence. They called it the World. It was their finest work of art. To make it work they started by designing a great crystal. Into the Crystal of Creation they poured all of their plans, their order of the new universe, the very rules that made this physical place exist… and much of themselves. They wanted this to be the most wonderful creation of all time, so they poured their own nature of Grim and Radiant energy into all they created. And before they were ruined, they touched greatness for a moment as they sparked new kinds of life, animal and plant. But this wasn't enough for them, so they pushed more of their own Radiant and Grim power from within to create a physical reflection of themselves… a kind of melding of animal and their own consciousness, a new kind of life that they
