The Seven World Continuum
The climactic moment of the Forth World, a massive war among human, dragonkin, and Gardenborn states. It arose in response to the disaster a human student of the mysteries caused by uniting darkness and light into cosmos. Finally, each faction possess an incredible artifact: The Humans possess the Legendarium, the Dragonkin some pieces of the the Living Analects, and the Gardenborn their Mysteries.
The period immediately following the War is often referred to as the Post-War Zeal. At this time, the Gardenborn collected the Living Analects and used them to suspend all mortals until some form of judgment could be reached. The outcome of this judgment caused the humans to be set up in a Simulacrum and the dragonkin to undergo harsher punishment.
