Eons of eons ago, the quite inadequately named God of stuff was created. Some say that he popped up out of thin air, but that was mere slander as air wasn't invented before the God of stuff. However, he was formed and he went on to create hundreds upon thousands of universes, which he compiled into a structure called the multi-verse. All of the universes lived happily in cohabitation.
The God of stuff, now known as the Original decided that he alone could not look over these universe and created smaller, less powerful deities to watch over each universe. He also created a being that was on the same power level as him, in case anything went wrong. He unimaginatively named this being Prototype. It was a peaceful time.
Until the wars...
The universes began to fight under the deities' orders, striving to become the most powerful universe with the most powerful God. The Original smiled and let them get on with it, too sentimental and caring to intervene. So, Prototype created the void, and used the void's power to separate the universes. The Original discovered Prototype's treachery and created the light blade and the shadow blade, forcing the shadow blade into the void. He also made Prototype into a shadow God, thus the light blade kept him in the void. The Original tried to undo Prototype's handiwork, but this only led to different religions ending up in different universes.
Prototype had his revenge soon...
Original delved into the depths of the void, unsuspecting the new changes. It had a population of what appeared to be shadows and the Original was not in control of his movements. Prototype found him, and challenged him. The Original, growing used to the alternate physics, agreed as he had grown in power. However, Prototype had been destroying entire universes using his shadowy minions and by tricking the populace of those universes. He absorbed the universes power, growing in his strength. He easily defeated the Original and shattered his soul. However, the soul was strong and possessed one of the shadows in the void, who was finding himself questioning Prototype's reign before. He freed the souls from Prototype's dark grasp, sending the shadow and the souls into the multi-verse at random. This shadow is thought to be the messiah.
His name was Trexor.
And after this, Prototype invented chess.

The Lost Legend
Eons ago, the Greek god of the underworld, Hades hatched a daring plan to steal the powers of all of the other Olympian Gods in revenge for him ruling only the dead. This plan was so sudden and brilliant, that it almost worked.
Wishing to gain the powers of the gods, he forged an item called the Cornopticus. Then, he gathered A DNA sample from all of the gods. This was done by Hades's suggestion of a mandatory nose-hair shaving. Eventually, the male gods had their nose hair trimmed, with exception of the goddess's and Helios, who appeared to be unable to grow facial hair due to a disorder he had contracted during puberty. Hades then transferred the DNA into the Cornopticus.
But, there was a fatal flaw in his plan. Helios, god of the sun, witnessed Hades telling his most faithful servant about the Cornopticus. He hurried to tell Zeus. After gathering an army of demi-gods, he set them on Hades under Helios' command. Hades, with no extra power, slaughtered the demi-gods in an outburst of rage. Hades turned on Helios, and cast him out into deep space. Hades then stole a hair brush of each of the female gods, leaving him only without Helios's powers.
This was too much for Zeus. In order to stop Hades, he held a communion with the other gods. However, Hades, believing that the Cornopticus had granted him the powers of the gods, interrupted the ritual and turned on the gods. Firstly, he faced his own brothers, Zeus and Poseidon. When they started using their god powers, Hades realized that something was wrong. Eventually, Zeus and the other gods defeated Hades and sealed him in the star at the centre of the universe.
After this attempt to gain power, Zeus put a curse on all who try to gain the gods power. It goes:
Anyone who tries to gain the power of the gods shall die. They shall hear three beats before they die, as a warning to make the remaining minutes of their life insufferable.
