War of Long Night
Korag Kerund Swah
The War of Long Night was a hellacious time of rage and violence between Sekk, Drepp, Gywn, and Roderra. Sekk killed Gywn out of tragic spite when he found out about the betrayal, then turned on the others. As the gods fought, caring not for the world or creatures they helped create, the world trembled from their war, and Krel and Urdess decided they must do something or the world would be destroyed. They forged and alliance with Man and the other Prime Races. Together they set out to stop the war between the giant gods.
The war was won by the alliance, but at a great cost. Roderra, out of humiliation and betrayal, committed suicide upon the highest peak of The Southlands. The land spewed fire for weeks upon her death. And finally, Krell, Lord of the elements, sacrificed himself to trap and bind the three others. The ritual tore him asunder, scattering his essence over the realm, and burying Sekk and Drepp. As a final act, before his sacrificial ritual was complete, he placed his heart in a sling and cast it into the sky: a second sun to remind the world, and Urdess, of his love and sacrifice. The races named it The Blood Sun. It burns red in the sky, but provides no heat but for the flora of the world.
