4726 K.V. (approx 1200 Before Terrenden Common Era - B.T.C.E.) In the generations before this story, Velantia saw its youth decimated by a great and terrible war – fought by the gods themselves. Thankfully there were enough survivors to keep things going, but with a smaller gene pool, it was only a matter of time before inbreeding became a serious issue. And with the portals sometimes losing youth to the Other World and less frequently gaining some, the Guardians sometimes have to made difficult decisions.
Yet, the Guardians remain fickle and the rules remain.
The Guardians are not above making decisions for your own best interest – even if you do not understand it at the time. They are, after all… Guardians.
As such, the boundary between worlds is sometimes very thin – sometimes even non-existent. Occasionally, people accidentally find their way across into a world unknown to them. Sometimes, they even manage to return, but sometimes, the lure of the Other World is too much and they choose to remain – or have the choice made for them…
