- The World
2. The World Edit
"After their fists collided in the very center of the endless universe there was a period of silence. A brief timespan in which all fighting stopped for the first time in a hundred years. The explosion that followed the silence created three worlds, namely Tengria, The Dreamworld and the Void and the Meadow of Light"
After an one hundred years long fight between the god of light and the goddess of darkness the world Tengria, the Dreamworld, the Void and the Meadow of Light were created.
Tenriel is the world of mortal beings(humans, elves, dwarves etc.) and is surrounded by the Dreamworld. The Dreamworld is a place of imagination, it is split into distinct parts in which the owner is free to do what s/he wishes. It is also completely accessible by the Gods. After the creation of the world, the spirit of Ora banished the god of light into the Meadow of Light and the goddess of darkness into the Void. Not much is known about these worlds and the bit that is, is kept by the church of Seth.
