As legend has it, at first there was only one deity, the Mad God, Syr. It is the most powerful of all the gods, but also nearly mindless. There is scholarly debate whether it is even sentient at all or merely a force of nature. It creates and destroys at mere whims, uncaring or unaware of those caught in the tides of its power. Some believe Syr created all the other gods as well as the humans and other natural creatures of the material realm. Many of these beings were tormented or even eliminated from existance by the Mad God before the other gods became fearful of Syr’s unfathomable power, and thoughtless, destructive applications thereof. They felt that soon enough they would be next, so they put aside their differences and united their powers to drive Syr into a deep, endless slumber.
Other gods have learned that the shockwaves of power caused by battle between themselves echoes through the Cosmos and disturb’s Syr’s sleep. For this reason, they refrain from open war amongst themselves, fearful of the greater repercussions of awaking the Mad God. As Syr slumbers, power eminates from it’s body and special mortals are able to tap into it. This is the source of all arcane(non-divine) magic in the world.
