The Age of Immortals
The Age of Immortals, also known as The First Age, is the period of Mire-Brissay’s history when the Immortals still walked on the world. It started with the creation of the Immortals by A-dui. For a hundred years A-dui remained in the world and spent time with the Immortals. After teaching them most of their lore and giving them the Four Prophecies A-dui departed the world. The Immortals spent hundreds of years exploring A-dui’s world, uncovering new knowledge, and creating their own legacies. They built fantastic buildings and crafted powerful artifacts. They also codified many of the laws that governed the world.
After this time the Firstborn appeared in the world and the Immortals began teaching them. This marked the turning point in the First Age. Until this time there had been no conflict between the Immortals. However with the arrival of the Firstborn and their expansion disagreements began to arise among the Immortals on the best course of action. Still the peace continued for hundreds of years and the Firstborn were taught a portion of the Immortals’ knowledge. The Firstborn made this knowledge their own, though limited by their own power, and used it to build their own cities and countries.
It is uncertain what triggered it, but a full-scale war broke out among the Immortals along with their allied Firstborn. The War of the Immortals was short and bloody. At the start of the war the Immortals could not be killed, only wounded. Thus the casualties of war fell on the Firstborn and the buildings and cities that had been built. Many marvelous things were destroyed or lost in just a few years. The end of the War of the Immortals came about as quickly as the start. The appearance of The Swords of Slaying, now known as The First Act of Defilement, showed that the Immortals could, in fact, be killed. After the death of many Immortals in each faction one Titan, xxx, suggested a solution, The Accord of Withdrawal. This signaled the end of the war, the First Age, and the Immortals’ presence on Mire-Brissay.
