Omen of Great Chaos - The Main God Disappears
Ohn, having created the world, entrusted it to the five lower gods who created races respectively and allowed them to thrive. The first five races to be created--Humans, Giants, Elves, Halflings, and Dark Elves--developed land conferred upon them by the gods with the knowledge and skills acquired from the divinities. Ohn created dragons to station at the borders of each territory, and prevented cultures from blending with each race maintaining autonomous cultures.
Soon thereafter, a serious incident unfolded in the Human kingdom. KrauteDel Lagos usurped the throne upon assassinating the reigning king, his reprobate older brother. Kraute's 13-year reign drew to a close after the late son ousted him with a military subversion.
The prophet Haillok, an assistant to Kraute, left Human territory with a number of Humans, and headed to Bahran Island in northern Rohan Continent. They were the forefathers of the Dhan race.
Thereafter, peace ensued for a time. All races erected countries and constructed capitals perpetuating growth. In the Human kingdom, the Paladin system was institutionalized rooted in devout faith, and Giants cultivated warriors to protect their motherland from harsh nature. Elves trained in magic healing and spearheaded cultural development, and Halflings opened the path to cohabitation by living among animals. Dark Elves maximized magic power as a means of self-defense. Perfecting such autonomous cultures respectively, each race would ostensibly exist in quietude.
One Privy to the Truth - Turns Sword at the Gods
With the dragons gone from obstructing territorial borders, the Human kingdom led an exploration and investigation of foreign territories. Human envoys visited the capital of every race, and interracial diplomacy with Humans as principals was launched. In the interim, Dekans, having settled in Bahran island and amassed power, encountered Dhans who'd settled in the island earlier. Upon the unanticipated encounter, the two races clashed escalating to all-out war terminating with an armistice only after a decade of profound destruction.
Having realized main god Ohn cannot be resurrected by merely obliterate the dragons, the five lower gods decide to annihilate all races on the continent and implement their intent. While countless animals and plants metamorphosed into monsters, fairies and a number of races, acting on the gods' orders, began to wage attack on the major continental races. Even in the midst of such turmoil interracial diplomacy continued and between Humans and Elves, two races who grew relatively close, the mixed-race Half Elves were born. Half Elves, who were looked askance at by both Humans and Elves ultimately were unable to dwell in either country. Instead, they sought a quiet refuge by constructing an independent village located between the two nations. Harboring profound animosity against both Humans and Elves, they cultivated their power with an independent character not relying on anyone.
In the meantime, paladins standing guard at Gratt Fortress, built to deter attacks, had a chance to encounter Roha, the god of the Human race. Having learned the intent of the gods to annihilate all races, paladins pleaded to Roha to retract the decision, but were possessed by Roha instead. Edwin, a paladin able to resist possession, roamed the continent, assembled colleagues and mounted resistance against the gods to no avail.
Jealousy and Wrath - Darkness Shrouds the Continent
Their failure, unforgotten, began to propagate among the masses along with the truth. The rumor reached far and wide by way of hushed whispers. The gods have abandoned the world. The gods have turned their backs on all races. The gods are trying to obliterate life as we know it. Fear grew pervasive and ultimately, suspicion and wrath latent in the hearts of all organisms surfaced throwing the world into deeper turmoil.Beholding the world growing increasingly murky, Elf Queen Sila Mayor Regenon dispatched urgent messengers to all races to propose a round of peace talks.However, only Humans and Halflings appeared at the roundtable."
Dark Elves, vexed by the passive and weak temperament of the Elves, and Giants, chafed by preeminent Human prowess, brokered a clandestine alliance to drive Humans and Elves out of the continent. With only three nations, Elves, Humans and Halflings having entered into peace accords, the Giants' premier extends a hand to Half Elves who've been maintaining a neutral stance. In the interim, Dhans and Dekans, on standby upon declaring a truce, kept each other in check while observing continental maneuvers. But with the continental atmosphere escalating to impending warfare, and monsters emerging on Bahran Island, the two races were forced into cooperation.
With time passing, the world grew bogged deeper in a murky inferno, and all races unwittingly engaged in strife against all other races.To those who have not abandoned hope on the gods, those prepared to fight albeit waiting for a change of heart on the gods' end, and to the ones willing to fight as long as survival was ensured, the advent of an era of misery and darkness was dawning.
The era of yearning for fertile earth and prosperous life in the name of divinity has passed and the last inheritance of the earth ensconced in the abandoned land emerges from all corners. Now, it is time to till the earth with our own hands and wield tools to realize prosperity. Gathering Ohn’s blessings, we retaliate against the rage of the lower gods!
When the five lower gods, created by central god Ohn, spawned their own respective races, Ohn learned the appearance of those creatures were less than perfect, unlike his creations. Humans would vanish into thin air if the balance of the five powers conferred upon the five lower gods were upset. Ohn, deeming human life pitiable, extended his hands to land’s end and newly created grass, trees and rocks. Replicas of primordial nature, human effort could transform them into sturdy and utilitarian tools to enrich human life.
While most lower gods were moved by Ohn’s gesture to fill the fissures of imperfection lurking in the fibers of their creations, Roha, God of the Sun, demurred alleging the marriage of human intellect and Ohn’s gift is sufficient to pose material threat to the lower gods and argued that the natural resources must be usurped albeit to no avail. Abundant natural resources created by Ohn ultimately sowed the seeds for rapid continental growth, and mortal races waxed sufficiently powerful to present a threat to divine decisions.
Upon central god Ohn’s demise being torn asunder, Sun God Roha, the highest ranked of the lower gods, ordered Silva, Goddess of the Wind, to perpetuate decay of natural resources potentially threatening to the lower gods, and commanded Gail, God of the Land, to render the earth barren. However, as Silva grew increasingly depleted of her powers, concealed natural resources began to resurface one by one in all corners of the continent. As the shrewd races of R.O.H.A.N.: Blood Feud detected the resurgence, collection and production techniques, having fallen latent for more than a century, were being roused from darkness. Now what utilitarian form the earth’s inheritance will assume and impale the lower gods hinges on human acumen.

The teen titan's shredded leggings were downright dreadful, but her blue booties actually gave us cooties.
AVATAR takes us to a spectacular world beyond imagination, where a reluctant hero embarks on an epic adventure, ultimately fighting to save the alien world he has learned to call home. James Cameron, the Oscar-winning director of "Titanic," first conceived the film 15 years ago, when the means to realize his vision did not exist yet. Now, after four years of production, AVATAR, a live action film with a new generation of special effects, delivers a fully immersive cinematic experience of a new kind, where the revolutionary technology invented to make the film disappears into the emotion of the characters and the sweep of the story.
We enter the alien world through the eyes of Jake Sully, a former Marine confined to a wheelchair. But despite his broken body, Jake is still a warrior at heart. He is recruited to travel light years to the human outpost on Pandora, where corporations are mining a rare mineral that is the key to solving Earth's energy crisis. Because the atmosphere of Pandora is toxic, they have created the Avatar Program, in which human "drivers" have their consciousness linked to an avatar, a remotely-controlled biological body that can survive in the lethal air. These avatars are genetically engineered hybrids of human DNA mixed with DNA from the natives of Pandora... the Na'vi.
Reborn in his avatar form, Jake can walk again. He is given a mission to infiltrate the Na'vi, who have become a major obstacle to mining the precious ore. But a beautiful Na'vi female, Neytiri, saves Jake's life, and this changes everything. Jake is taken in by her clan, and learns to become one of them, which involves many tests and adventures. As Jake's relationship with his reluctant teacher Neytiri deepens, he learns to respect the Na'vi way and finally takes his place among them. Soon he will face the ultimate test as he leads them in an epic battle that will decide nothing less than the fate of an entire world.
