RP Realm: The Reforged Realm (Anaxi)
At the edge of a tangled briar bush is a thick group of people. At a glance each looks identical to the next and there are so many of them! But they are not all the same individual, they each are walking curiously about their new world examining rocks and twigs, some have already started glaring at others due to small slights, whether real of perceived. These were a short lived people, but ones with a very long memory. Even so, they are a newborn race like all the others, they're beholding the world for the first time. As a blank slate they are open for molding and guiding, and that is just what their god is about to arrive to do.

OOC: Feel free to write your gods arrival to their new people! In your post you'll want to include at least two things. The first, letting the race know how they should regard you. The second, giving them guidance to how they should approach this strange new world they've found themselves in.

RP Realm: The Reforged Realm (Anaxi)
Abethur appeared before the Anaxi as he once was. For the briefest moment he was a ball of iridescent light, a transmuting mote of celestial power, a divine singularity laid bare in the mortal plane. Space and time warped around him and all who gazed upon him, those with the strength of will to do so, knew that he WAS and that he was their god. Still just as quickly as the moment came it passed, leaving behind the mortal form he had assumed following the Cataclysm.

He looked at each of the Anaxi that stood before him, passing his glaze slowly over each of them without special consideration or pause. When he spoke it was with resolution but in a tone that forced the listener to focus in.

"I am Abethur, God of Evolution. I created you from the Void and placed you within this world. You are the Anaxi, my chosen mortals."

He gestured around the strange Reforged Realm.

"As your Lord I granted you one of the greatest boons I could: a curious mind. Use it well. Seek to explore, to understand, to master the world around you and yourselves."

He then held up a cautioning hand.

"But be warned my children. Not all in this Realm is harmless nor means you harms. A curious mind is a blessing but a fool-heart is a weakness. Act with discernment and learn well your foes and allies."

"For now we are all of one mind and accord. Secure for yourselves shelter, food, and water. Only the living can change tomorrow."

RP Realm: The Reforged Realm (Anaxi)
With a rumble of earth and burst of light, the Reforged Realm recognized the arrival of one of its originations. The host of Anaxi nearby stared wide eyed and pressed in close to get a better look at what was afoot, they were too young to realize there may be danger in such theatrics. They huddled in close and listened to Abethur introduce himself. Their open faces did not have room for suspicion (At least not yet, in due time their begrudging nature would hold many a grievance and fear, but not yet) they looked at one another with their nearly identical faces, made even more so by their shared wonder. And they nodded, accepting the proclamation they'd heard.

Anaxi have acquired a new trait: Curious Pragmatists

One came pushing through the others. Looking much the same as her kin, this Anaxi differentiated herself not by physical characteristics, but by raising her voice. "Abethur! Abethur!" She called, then shriveled a bit as she saw his disapproving expression. "Lord Abethur," she corrected, "Why are you a god and why are we mortals? What are allies and foes?" she asked while the other Anaxi looked from her and back to Abethur eager to hear the answer to these questions.

Abethur nodded at the questions.

"The division between mortal and god was once a matter of composition, of birthright, and blind luck. Now those boundaries have been torn asunder and reforged in myriad ways. The road to apotheosis, to divinity, may yet lay within mortal hands but it remains unknown."

"As for why I am as I am and you are as you are it is the consequence of lineage. I, to the limit of my divine understanding, created myself and you all were created by me. I have yet to uncover a means of creating more of myself, at least not directly."


Abethur felt no need to present the Universe and all its mysteries as fact. The unknown was were life found its true spark, where the driving forces of evolution arose from. Even he, ageless as he was, was not equipped with true omniscience.

"As for allies and enemies they are terms which you can affix to other beings. An ally is someone who you trust and will come to your aid when they are able. An enemy is the opposite. They are someone you distrust and who seeks to hamper and harm you whenever it proves convenient to their own ends or simply out of spite. Those who lie between these terms are simply neutral. Beings of neutrality often avoid needless conflict or benevolence unless it serves them."

"It is my hope that you will strive to make more allies than enemies and be more benevolent in your neutrality than otherwise."


It was his hope, at the end of the day, rather than a strict commandment. Sometimes enemies needed to be formed. Sometimes blood had to be shed. Time and time again he had witnessed the wars of mortals and their often petty justifications. Still at times even he held favoritism for a cause

The outspoken Anaxi seemed content with the answers Abethur had provided, at least for the moment, their furrowed brow said there would likely be more to come. The rest of the Anaxi had broken into a soft babble of conversation as they discussed the wisdom that Abethur had shared, this idea of allies and enemies was one which clearly resonated with the large crowd. With the new ideas to mull over Abethur seemed to be forgotten for the time being. A god, impressive as they were, was only one more novelty when your entire species had only existed for a few moments.

For the moment the Anaxi seemed to content to explore their new surroundings. Turning over rocks, getting pricked by thorns and peering under bushes they had plenty to do. Unless Abethur had other guidance he wished to impart upon the new race they looked as though they would keep themselves occupied for some time.

Abethur was content to simply sit and observe his people explore the world. As he was a commonplace feature he only warranted so much attention. It was peaceful in a way. In his past existence mortals were always attempting to garner his favor and to obtain various blessings and boons. Of course there were an equal number that sought him to afflict banes and blights upon their enemies, to call down divine judgment on men, kingdoms, or even entire heretical sects.

Abethur preferred the almost casual indifference his people showed him now. They were his people and their own people; within a certain limit.

Enjoying the quiet and innocence of these early moments amongst the Anaxi, Abethur observed for a time, but eventually felt the itch to wander. The Cosmic Wastes were calling and a god could only be in so many places at once.

OOC: Both the Reforged Realm and the Wastes are an RP Realm, so currently leaving the Reformed Realm to go roaming!

Abethur sat and watched his people grow, mature, and multiply. Where he was able he used his earthshaping ability to help them making homes for themselves and offered the occassional assistance to the refugee population of Patch People that seemed to congregate in the safety of the caves. Time had not made them fast friends or even allies but they were bond in necessity and that was a strength in of itself. If for no other reason that their combined numbers should help keep the Hidarugami from expanding into even more territory.

Abethur feared that their ravenous hunger would see them come into conflict with his people sooner rather than later and he had already gone apathetic to their existence due to the deaths of several of his own for no crime greater than curiosity. Still Abethur was not a vengeful god and so he decided to take a different approach.

RP Realm: The Reforged Realm (Anaxi)
When time slowed back to its natural rhythm Abethur refamiliarized himself with the Anaxi lands. They were not so different, just larger in most ways. Pleased by this natural urge to settle and make structures, Abethur lent his support. Wielding the divine power he'd claimed at the formation of the realm Abethur raised walls and hollowed out caves easing the work required for these settlements. The Anaxi for their part, are delighted by the seeming reappearance of Abethur and even more so by the impressive display of manipulating the stone and dirt.

The Anaxi, ever populous, are some of the foremost builders at this time.
