A Brief History of ArkEarth
Bard Kartia Logan, SoH., PoSc., SoM.
To an Offworlder, ArkEarth can be very strange and difficult to understand but still we must start from the beginning and work our way through history.
Long Ago only humans existed, they lived peacefully in a technologically advanced society on a planet known as Earth. In this society no magic existed, but instead Psychic ability was common and used in a similar fashion. At some point their scientists discovered something. The sun was dying and it would not be long before it went Nova (See my Article "Cosmological Terminology"). The humans decided to design giant ships called "Arks", and to find a planet they could live on. The "Arks" went seperate ways, unable to contact one another. For many millennium's these giant "Arks" flew through space. One came to our system to discover ArkEarth. They were stunned by ArkEarth. To Explain, ArkEarth is a massive planet, no one knows exactly how big it is, and it's climate seems random to the non-magical. but in fact ArkEarth exists in the only section of the galaxy where magic works, which is the reason such a massive planet can exist in the first place.
Now for what most historians believe of about 3000 years, These humans populated ArkEarth and terraformed it to their liking, without any knowledge of magic. Then for seemingly no reason Magical energy flooded the planet, wrecking havoc on the Technology, psychic ability, even the very landscape. for 700 years this continued until the magic settled down into it's constant state it is today.
