[ Colossus IV ]

August 7, 2006

Aeyrom and his supporters went on to battle the many factions, facing possible defeat on a few occasions but always coming through in the end, slowly bringing order to the Continuum once again. Throughout this time Vethria was by Aeyroms side and provided soft council as she had planned, riding Aeyrom’s ascension to realms of power that few Colossals before had ever known. And so Aeyrom and his supporters consolidated their power.

Aeyrom had learned much from the past and decided not to make the same mistakes. Aeyrom had seen that the Strata system had been a disaster and that the Elurivids had paid the price for creating that system once it had collapsed. Aeyrom knew the Colossals would never serve one another and so decided that he and his supporters would make a slave race that could serve the Colossals allowing for them to be equals, thus solving the problem of the endless struggle for dominion over one another forever. He also came to the conclusion that he alone could not rule like Cintieff had and so decided on a council of Equals that would decide the fate of the Continuum and that he would use his power through this council. This council he called the “Seud Pnaoneth” and it was this group that would rule over the Continuum. All the defeated factions who would not submit to the Seud Pnaoneth would be banished to the periphery of the Continuum. Aeyrom new that these exiles could be very dangerous in the future but he believed that the majority of the Colossals would come over to the Seud Pnaoneth. Aeyrom felt that his new system of rule was nearly perfect, especially in its ability to display his personal power.

In all this Vethria was ever present being most particularity interested in the creation of the slave race and as such Aeyrom allowed Vethria to facilitate the creation in which all the other Colossals of the Seud Pnaoneth would take part. Her first act however was having the Seud Pnaoneth keep Aeyrom from participating in the creation and although at first he took offense to this, Vethria convinced him that as his power was greater then all the other members of the Seud Pnaoneth it would be an act of humility which the Seud Pnaoneth would appreciate. Also this act would greatly diminish any jealousy and possible contention to his growing power as it would exhibit his ability to implement justice.

With Aeyrom seemingly out of the creation process the Seud Pnaoneth met and each of the members assisted in the creation of the slave race. Vethria for her part and in secret designed great prowess into the slave race and as the rest of the Colossals wanted to design a capable race equal to the challenge of serving the Colossals designed in many skills and abilities. Aeyrom however did not rise to his position by blindly trusting the other Colossals and so illegally designed into this Slave race his own limits fearing the slave race might be to great a nuisance, too capable of breeding and too hard to extinguish. The result of this entire process would only become evident at a later time.

And so the slave race was created to serve the Colossals of the Seud Pnaoneth and all of the creators were content, most especially Vethria. And they called this new race of beings the “Sevtolhal”.

[ Colossus I ]

July 17, 2006

There is a dimension from which all else flows forth, a plain that is pre-creation and pre-reality. A place composed of pure energy and who’s only governing law is chaos. This place is populated by beings of incomprehensible power called the Colossals and these Colossals call this world the Continuum.

Throughout endless millennia the Colossals have engaged in never ending warfare with each other for the purpose of establishing order from the utter chaos that has reigned in eternity. Initially the Colossals were incapable of living in peace and would seek dominion over one another. Their individual power maintained the chaos and though many attempts had been made to establish order these attempts were for naught.

Originally the Colossals individually vied for ascendancy as they were unlikely to work together. The fate of the Continuum was in the hands of the winner of a single combat versus battle and the victor would reign until challenged and deposed. Then the cycle would repeat.

At one point a particularly powerful Colossal named “Cintieef” fought a single combat against the then current holder of power and won giving him command of the Continuum. Cintieef’s rule was long as he could not be supplanted having survived numerous challenges. Not only did Cintieef’s rule last long but it was also harsh as he saw the maintenance of his power best guaranteed by bending the will of all the other Colossals to his way. Cintieef’s form of rule was unpopular and the challengers lined up and all were defeated. Cintieef was seen as a tyrant by the Colossals he ruled over. Eventually the Colossals decided that Cintieef was too powerful, his rule too extreme and that he threatened the Continuum by his actions and so they decided to work together to defeat Cintieef. And so they fell upon him unawares and he was vanquished. This however had set a new precedent were a Colossal could be removed from power by the combined efforts of a group of Colossals and so an Alliance was born. Cintieef’s rule and the actions that took place to remove him from power would mark a new change in the governing of the Continuum and begin a system of alliances in order to achieve domination.
