Fiesta Story

I know a lot of us know the story, but at the same time, a lot of people don't. They recently added Chapter 2, so I thought I'd post the 2 chapters.

Source.

Chapter 1

The universe was born in a sea of darkness and chaos.
This primal force called itself Legel, and embodied both creation
and destruction. Legel's ever churning forces gave birth to
a myriad of worlds and creatures both great and small.
Many creations were quickly snuffed out by the very force that
made them, but there were areas of temporary calm.
It was in one such peaceful location that the Goddess Teva and
the world of Isya were born.

Like many before her, Teva was a being of tremendous power.
She reveled in the power given to her by Legel, however temporary
it might be. She was fully prepared to accept the inevitability of her
own destruction at the hands of the very thing that created her.

But before this could happen, Teva looked down upon the world that
had been born at the same time as she and saw a variety of new life
on its surface. She saw many brutal and vile creatures upon this world,
but also something else

She saw children playing and animals nurturing and protecting their young.
There were two species in particular that caught her eye. These species
called themselves humans, and elves. What made them so remarkable was
the fact that they continued to struggle even against all odds, even when most
animals would have surrendered. They were frail compared to many other species
on the new planet and should not have survived. But soon Teva began to see some
of their virtues. She saw their kindness, their self sacrifice, but most of all something
else she couldn't understand. Something kept them holding on even when circumstances
were dire. Something made them fight on, even though there was no reason to believe in the future.
These creatures called it 'hope'.

What was this hope these creatures held onto so desperately? How could such an indescribable, intangible
feeling give them strength? How could it drive them to persevere against tremendous odds?
Teva wanted to know more; she NEEDED to know more. But Legel had other plans.

Teva saw the bubble of calm surrounding both her and this strange world begin to collapse. Legel had come to
reclaim what it had made, as it had done for eons. Teva decided she couldn't let this happen.
Not this time; not until she understood this 'hope'. Teva used the power granted her by Legel in an attempt to
hold back the forces threatened to destroy her and Isya. But those efforts were in vain. Teva felt herself becoming
consumed by Legel. She felt exasperation. Fear and uncertainty gripped her heart. Teva knew she couldn't possibly
resist the awesome power of Legel.

Teva decided to take one last look at the world that was born with her and the strange species that possessed a
strength she seemed to lack. Teva saw the people of the world looking up to her, seeing her attempts to save them.
Once again, these creatures astounded her. For the first time Teva noticed they felt the fear that gripped her. It was a
feeling of uncertainty. Was it always there? Did she somehow miss it? Or did its tight grip on her help her see it
within others for the first time?

Despite the uncertainty, the humans and elves held onto their hope. Teva saw they wouldn't give up, even with Legel's
awesome power threatening to crash down upon them. They hoped for something to save them. It somehow gave
them the power to make it through one more day. Then Teva realized something else. The humans and elves were
looking to her for hope; they wanted her to be the light capable of giving them a reason to look forward to a promising
future.

For the first time in Teva's existence, she understood what hope was.
She knew what it meant and why it gave these species such strength. Why they never gave up.

With a new found light within her, Teva pushed back against the darkness with renewed strength. She felt Legel lose
ground ever so slightly. But it was enough. That small victory filled Teva with greater strength. She pushed harder,
and every time Teva felt Legel back away a little more.

Legel couldn't believe what was happening. Something it created should stand no chance against its awesome might.
Teva was not only resisting him; she was winning. Legal knew it was in a losing battle and began to fragment itself.
Turning to pieces, Legel created many more beings like Teva. These became the gods.

Markis was the first god born of this fragmenting; Legel imbued him with powers of destruction. Pagel was next;
Legal gifted him with greed. The goddess Apoline followed with the power of desire. Next was Anis, gifted with Legel's
strength. Bijou was given Legel's power of creation. Last came Nik, imbued with the power of Darkness. As each god
was born, Legel gave them a desire to reunite and once again make it whole. But Legel kept the greatest power for
itself however. The power of Chaos.

Teva saw this happening but could do nothing, as she was completely focused on the battle with Legel. But Legel
became extremely weak in the fragmentation process; so weak, in fact, that with a single mammoth effort Teva
managed to seal Legel and the power of Chaos away. She buried the sealed God deep within the world of Isya. In
a way it seemed fitting to her that Legel be imprisoned upon the very world which helped Teva defeat him.

Teva then introduced herself to the inhabitants of the world she just saved. They thanked and praised her, calling her
the Goddess of Hope. But this is just the beginning of our story.

Chapter 2

The new gods immediately began to use the powers given
to them by Legel. Markis brought natural and unnatural
disasters to the world of Isya. Anis traveled the countryside,
fighting all he could find in order to test his strength. Pagel and
Apoline corrupted the hearts of mortals, while Nik did the same to
Isya’s peaceful creatures.

But there was one among the new gods who did not possess the same
desire to corrupt or destroy the world. Bijou, god of creation, decided to side
with Teva. He grew to love the world that Legel created and Teva saved.
Bijou became particularly fond of the Elves. Some say it was because he fell
in love with an Elf woman. But regardless of the reason, Bijou admired how the
Elves lived in harmony with creation and made beautiful art and music. They
crafted homes from living trees without harming them, and never took more
than they needed from the land. This way of life appealed to Bijou’s very nature.
Every time the other gods sought to destroy a part of Isya, Bijou would use his
powers to help counter it. If Markis destroyed a tree, Bijou helped two grow in
its place. If Anis turned a mountain into a crater, Bijou would make it rain to create a lake.

Bijou’s actions angered his fellow gods, and they conspired to take his power. One day,
as Bijou wandered through the Elven woods, enjoying the beauty of the world, the gods
struck. They attacked Bijou with all their might and their monstrous power began to destroy
everything in the nearby forest. Bijou, caught in the middle of the maelstrom, shattered into
pieces and scattered throughout Isya. With Teva’s only ally gone, the gods thought there was
little to prevent them from destroying her and the races that helped defeat Legel.

But they were wrong.

The pieces of Bijou scattered throughout Isya began to transform the world. Wherever they landed, forests grew and
animals were born. Known as Soul Stones, these pieces proved that even in death Bijou found a way to fight the
destruction and chaos plaguing Isya. Angry at Bijou’s continued interference, the remaining gods decided to capture
the Soul Stones scattered throughout the world. All mortals who opposed them would be destroyed.

Having recovered some of the Soul Stones that appeared when they destroyed Bijou, the gods began to create horrific
monsters to ravage the land. But without all the Soul Stones they lacked Bijou’s complete power of creation.
To compensate for this, the gods used their own blood to change what already existed. But it came at a cost.
The gods turned everything they could find into monsters, from boars and horses to trees and even inanimate objects
like mud and stones. While the transformation created strong, intelligent creatures, it caused them endless pain as
well. The new army, savage and merciless, tore across the lands of the Elves. The beasts sowed carnage in an effort
to claim the Soul Stones for their creators and destroy everything that got in their way.

Many Elves died in the early stages of this horrible conflict. Having enjoyed peace for centuries, the only combat skills
they still possessed were in archery and sorcery—and even those had been used only for hunting and civic projects.
The horde of terrible creatures quickly crushed the meager Elven resistance. The Elves who managed to survive
chose to hide deeper in the woods rather than stay and fight.

Just as all seemed lost, an Elf named Elderine called out to her people. Known for her skill as an archer, Elderine
was joined by her brother Epith, a talented mage. The two pleaded with the remaining Elves, asking them to protect
those unable to defend themselves and fight the monsters threatening the Elven way of life. Only a few answered the
call at first, but Elderine and Epith worked with them. Elderine showed other archers how their hunting skills could be
used to slay dangerous monsters. Epith taught mages how to use spells as weapons. The two also showed their
countrymen how to outmaneuver the enemy and lead them into ambushes using dexterity and speed.

The monsters were more than a match for the small Elven resistance created by Elderine and Epith, but this new
band of warriors did manage to slow it down. By doing so they gave countless Elves enough time to flee further into
the woods and to their capital city. As Elderine’s small victories began to mount,
more Elves flocked to her banner. Together they managed to collect Soul Stones from the
defeated monsters. By the time Elderine and Epith withdrew to the Elven capital, their forces
numbered in the hundreds. The group had also collected a large amount of Soul Stones
and the Elven people embraced Elderine as their leader. As she walked through the
streets and met with its people, she saw how the entire city
had been busy preparing for the siege that lay ahead.

As the terrible army of the dark gods approached,
the Elves prepared for what they feared would
be their last stand.

Wow. Nice. Though I think they've been changing it around fairly often because I know I was checking up on info on the story and I just could not find the paragraph about the Gods again for a long time. I think they took it out and put it back in.

Epith is Elderine's brother, eh? Interesting. But kinds of messes up the naming of the servers and the naming of the towns... =/

Yeah it'd be nifty to incorporate us into the story. Hold events that controls the storyline.
