Age of Ruin
In each land's history there are tales of the divine. Godly figures which appear throughout history performing great acts, inspiring the masses to worship in reverence, awe or even fear. While some of these tales are so well known they are entered into history as recorded fact, others are more legends. Curiously it seems that in the modern age the Gods have stopped appearing as frequently as they did. In ages past it is said that a pious man could cross paths with a god many times in their lifetime, now it appears they are only sighted once a century or so. Notably in the year 750 the then King of Abral decided it was all superstition and declared Abral an atheist state. This position was swiftly reversed by the next ruler after Alana, Queen of the gods manifested in the throne room and made her displeasure known. However since then there has only been rumors of divine intervention…

Dalon, Lord of Scars and War
The tale goes that Dalon was once the weakest of the gods. In his youth he would challenge both his peers and his foes to honorable combat. In each duel, following the customs of the land, the loser is left alive but with a fresh scar, a reminder of their loss. Through sheer perseverance Dalon has ascended to become the greatest warrior of all, beneath the bandages he wears his body is said covered completely in scars and blemishes from his many trials. His followers tend to wrap bandages around parts of their bodies before battle as a tribute.
