The First Age
The first age of Saoghal began when the Gods directed their gaze from their divine Astral realm to the mortal Material realm. There they saw the roiling chaos of potential without form or function.
The gods, seeking distraction from their eternal existence, began influencing this primordial chaos, seperating the things that were from the nothingness that they mingled with, shaping them into worlds and stars and moons.
These worlds, essentially chaos meeting order in the void, roiled and strained under the pressure of chaos to revert to it's natural state, and the order of the gods restraining that inertia.
The first age ended with the birth of the first mortals on the world of Saoghal.
