The Age of Rebirth
Great Devastation was not just one
cataclysmic event, but a chain of little
deceits. The beginnings can be
traced back to a series of treacherous
acts, both Dragons against Humans, and
Dragons against Dragons. No one
knows what was the spark that ignited
all this villainous betrayal of
morality, but one deceit led to another,
revenge for the injuries caused by
others. Soon that spark exploded
to outright war against common decency.
Finally, when Mother Nature decided to
enter the arena, no species or
clan would work together to battle Her
natural disaster heading towards
Draconis. But not even that comet
can be blamed for the devastation of
Draconian society. We species were
drowning in our self-centered,
isolationist dung. So it was only
natural for this amoral society to react
to the natural disaster with animalistic
behavior. The will to survive
quickly overcame our selfishness, and
soon we were plundering Dragons and
Humans alike, stealing what we could,
killing for what we needed.
Carnivores! Cannibals! Many
Dragons and Humans had died at the sword
or talons of others-- just to put meat
on the table. Just too survive!
By luck or by crook, the clans and
humans survived the Great Devastation,
though greatly diminished in numbers,
and--even worse -- greatly demoralized.
A tenuous truce settled upon the world.
Not much remains of our civilization.
The different Dragon Clans and humans
are spread about Draconis like debris
washed up by the flooding. No one
trusts the other -- not Dragons, not
humans -- but we must work together to
rebuild our society, to reclaim our
civilization. We are now in an Age
of Restoration, a Rebirth.
