Quote*A torn, ripped and ragged old scroll*-So passed the last great Wizard of the First Order whom had shown the world the glory and good in the core of the Order. The new First Wizard to be decided would come down to the decision of the remaining 4 War Wizards. This would be the biggest decision of the council in this time because of the need of a united Order. Because of the death of the last First Wizard the Order had split, each side backing its own candidate. This caused chaos not only in the Order but in the rest of Crussaria. The last First Wizard had shown and pledged the future of the Order to guard and protect the Empire. But because of his death there was a power struggle. One side wanted to continue the old ways and keep to themselves and leave the matters of the world to itself. The other side wanted to follow the last wishes of the greatest First Wizard known. Because of this power struggle that led to a split in the Order, each side chose their new leader and sets of laws. The side who supported the last First Wizards apprentice, Durinos Rahl, whom believed in the wishes of the last First Wizard kept the name of The First Order. He also was elected the leader of the First Order, whilst the other side of the conflict elected another hugely impressive Apprentice. This apprentice was considered by many to be evil; in fact it seemed to be true. He began teaching his followers dark magic and to show no mercy if shown conflict with humans. This led to the defining act of the First Order, showing its true place to the people of Crussaria. First Wizard Durinos Rahl rallied the strongest, wisest and most powerful wizards of the First Order. This act would have impact to alter the fate of the world and all the people in it. Durinos Rahl led his finest wizards to a gorge between several mountains by a village. This gorge would forever be hated by the people of Crussaria because of the bloodshed it spawned. Hundreds of wizards gathered from either side to face each other for dominance over the world of magic. Durinos Rahl led his finest into a battle of unspeakable horror, carnage, anger, hatred and death. Corpses littered the ground for miles, craters, destroyed rock and trees and thousands dead. This battle brought a race of wizards of thousands to mere hundreds or less. It would never again rise to its former glory; both sides lost numerous wizards of great importance. Though each would side would survive they now had a new problem; Because of the carnage wreaked by the wizards it had angered the populace of Crussaria. This led to the formation of groups like the Inquisitors which would drive wizards underground where they would stay for another 100 years. After a century of the underground Durinos Rahl, now 152, would try once again to lead the First Order out of the darkness and establish a new home for his few remaining wizards.*A burn mark in the scroll prevents further reading –continues from further down the scroll* -So was the belief of Durinos Rahl and the First Order. As Durinos himself, led his four War Wizards out of the underground to speak with the Lord and rightful heir of Crussaria. The five greatest wizards in the Order had left hiding on a mission to come to terms with the Lord. They believed that he as the rightful heir would be the proper man to speak with to help in his cause. They easily evaded and maneuvered to his Fortress and into his council room. Taking him by surprise whilst he was speaking with fellow nobles in support of his cause he called for guards. Durinos then convinced him that they meant no harm and were there to discuss his proposals. After a long night of discussion they had concluded that because of the public's fear of wizardry that the Order couldn't help openly. Durinos agreed that he would stay underground for the time being and would try to stop the now corrupted wizards and monsters from harming Crussaria. In return for protecting the people and Empire from this threat the Lord agreed to fund the building of a tower in the gorge of the great battle. Durinos believed for the honor of all the fallen wizards who gave their lives in that battle that this was the only way they would be properly remembered. The Lord used the guise of the tower being the beginning of a new fort in the gorge to supply the masons for construction. After the construction was complete Durinos planned to imbue the Tower with magical properties to hide it from humans. Among other enchantments and security measures it was to be the new home of the Order.*The following is a small snippet of an ancient proverb by a great wizard in a piece of the scroll*Emotion, strong as the biggest waves of the oceanSadness, the cause of the greatest madnessAnger, the beginning down the path of powerTogether, the start of true corruption
