Long ago, Humanity created wonderful machines that could fly to the top of the sky and animate paintings. They created many a wonderful and fantastic machines, as they quickly rose to power. But Humanity forgot of the Ether-people, the only race that could manage the elements to keep the balance for life to exist. Eventually, Humanity began changing elements into one another, creating chaos.
A monster appeared and killed a great deal of the ether-people, causing the elements to fly out of their control. Eventually the Ether-people grouped together in a massive fort called 'the fort of the west'. There they took in all who they could, but safety didn't last. When the defenses were forgotten, the night elementals swept through the fort, followed by the light and the others. All living fled in boats across the sea, to the land now called Y Famwlad.
