Before Humans came together and built great cities of stone, there were three families of farmers. These farmers lived near a grand forest edge, and cultivated the rich soil near its border. The affinity these Humans had for anything that grew was astounding. Some even say they could manipulate the Energy to make crops, plants and trees grow. Many generations later, they lived in harmony with nature, and their crops had flourished. Then a patriarch asked for resources to build a walled city. The farmers never had need of walls, because they lived a sheltered life of harmony. They obliged, however, for the relationship with the neighbouring family had always been a strong one.
But after some time, they wanted more and more, and their greed had grown beyond any measure. The crops had no time to rest, and they became exhausted. Always in tune with nature, the farmers’ families agreed to cease any supplies, to let nature heal. They worked night and day to take care of the wounded soil. On the fourth day of the healing, an armoured force marched upon the farms, and all three families were pushed deep into the forests. Barely escaping with their own lives, they watched the sky turn blood red as their cottages and homes burned under the night sky.
They fled into the woods seeking refuge and a new home.
