Long ago the world as we knew it was ripped apart by powerful magic. In a glorious and big explosion the world was separated and scattered into many uncountable pieces. Similar to that of a cloud of dust, the world stretched out as a thin mist of rock and stone. Much that happened after has been forgotten, and many did not survive this tragedy. A mighty wizard named Capricus was responsible for the "shattering", due to his lust for ever powerful means of magic, no matter the costs. His student Ronelius had foreseen what his master would do to the world, and took measures to prevent disaster. In secret Ronelius gathered people who he had convinced to be frozen in time, using powerful chrono magical devices of his masters creation. By doing so he saved a lot of people, who, in time, would awaken one by one in a new and broken world.
One after another, mankind rose again in the dust. No one knew how many years it has been, or what had transpired in the meantime. Those who awoke first was aware of the past, but not of who they were. And those who awoke later were barely even a husk of their former self. The new world, although scattered and broken, was habitable and full of life. And a new frontier for mankind was created.
In the dust, all around and out of sight, magic lingered. From the center of the new world, magic was constantly spewing out together with the dust. The very magic that destroyed the world, would be discovered as the most profitable ressource of the new world. conflicts broke out and wars were fought, for the control and distribution of this powerful ressource. The dust was said to be the very essence of everything and nothing. The perfect amalgamation of power and balance. A material with the perfect alchemical property, no matter what it was needed for. A material with the power to create anything with the right knowledge.
And thus the age of Dust was born.
