On Elbauthin and Udreria When I asked the Mortal God Elbauthin where he had been born, he went quiet. Not quiet as if trying to recall, though; it was the silence of a man deep in thought, appreciating the nostalgia brought on by the topic. There was a smile on his face, and when he finally spoke, his words shocked me. I was born in the Ancient Empire of Udreria. I was unsure about this answer. As a scholar, I had studied the Empire of Udreria. It was a massive chunk of land on which a number of small villages had been built. These villages lived together in harmony until, eventually, they were conquered. One-by-one, the villages of Udreria fell, and today, what was once Udreria is now a number of different countries, all sharing a single quality: the fact that they had forgotten their Udrerian history. So, I asked him. The Empire of Udreria fell over a thousand years ago, how can you have been born there? His answer was quite simple. I am three thousand years old, my dear. I was born in the Empire of Udreria before it fell, but after the war. That intrigued me further. I knew not what war he spoke of - many minor wars had been waged, which was how the Empire had fallen, but he spoke of it as thought it was one major war, a war of great importance. So, I asked him. The Empire of Udreria was an ancient Empire. It took up a massive amount of land. Unlike a traditional Empire, Udreria consisted of many small villages scattered all throughout the land. Each village had a leader - some chose to elect their leaders, others were chosen by birthright, while others still chose their leaders based on their skills. Each leader had an emissary whose job was to communicate between the villages, and so these emissaries spent much of their time on the road. The villagers mostly lived peacefully. Long ago, however, peace was not the norm in the Empire. A massive war was raging between the two sides of the land, the East and the West. In the West of the Empire, the villages had come to value the home and the family, as well as the fruits of hard work and labour. In the East, however, villages felt that value should be placed on strength and material wealth. Their values soon clashed, and though they tried for years to settle their differences peacefully, they found their disagreements growing into an inevitable war.
