Islands of Yhb
The Old Gods
The ancient legends hold that long ago, the lands of Yhb were once united as one great landmass. Two gods ruled over Yhb peacefully, and its inhabitants prospered. The Breath of the Gods granted untold power to the people, eliminating the need for farms and allowing for massive leaps in technology.
For a time, the world lived in peace. It was not long, however, before powerful war machines infused with the breath began to appear. Two empires emerged, dividing Yhb. Entire cities were razed, and millions of lives were lost in the ensuing war.
Enraged at the abuse of their gift, the gods shattered Yhb. Earthquakes ravaged the land, the ocean enveloped entire cities. As the newly formed islands drifted apart the gods departed, never to return.
