The official Imperial History...
The spirits speak of The World Before Worlds, a time when body and spirit were one, unified in all respects. The World Before Worlds was a place of unimaginable wonders, but as with all great things, it was eventually torn asunder by greed and jealousy, and The World Before Worlds, with all of it's wonders, fell into shadow and chaos. The realms of spirit and flesh were forever sundered, parted by a wall both intangible and impenetrable.
From the chaos emerged a dark spirit, what some might term a demon. It gathered to itself great power, and sent it's armies against the wall to conquer the realm of flesh. Mighty though the wall was, after one thousand thousand years, it began to weaken, and cracks appeared.
In the realm of flesh, the first men were forming the first villages. Some of them allied with the dark forces entering the world from the realm of spirit, while others sought the strength of more honorable allies, the pure spirits of the beasts and the elements. Banners were raised, and the first wars were fought, as the spirits sought to overcome one another through armies of flesh and steel.
