Land is a simple name, describing the simple needs and thoughts of simple people who have a passive inner knowledge that their planet is quite possibly many times older than the entire universe. These thoughts are ingrained into their very psyche, but are buried deep in their consciousness; it is something that they know, but know not why they know it, nor what to do with the knowledge.

Land was formed over many expansions and contractions of this particular universe; each formation burned into the landscape and geology another unique footprint that divided the inhabitants in some cases and allowed them to come together in others. Hundreds of societies were buried in rubble and long forgotten; scores were destroyed and rediscovered; a few survived.

Gods watched, as gods sometimes do. Among the multitude of diverse universes, the gods worked their network of observation, looking for the gifted few beings who would join their ranks.
