A Nevre Creation Myth & The Ebb and Flow of Magic

When the realm of Nevre was created magic was in the air, the water, the fire, and the ground of the world. Out of this magic there arose four races.

The first was of the air and were the great yeodiax. With great creativity they could have learned many great things, but could focus on nothing for long and never did.

The second was of the water and were the unknown serventers. They can make all pure by touch alone, but have not been seen in recorded memory.

The third was of the fire and are the erdaz. They hunger for the destruction of all and are now secluded to Nezkidar and are still being fought at all cost.
