The following is an excerpt from the Book of Orden, taken from the Tome of Rya-Llan, Visions from the Dream Mother, volume 105, verses 23-27.
The universe has never known a civilization as great as the Aeletians. Cylith-Mahir was their greatest city, a metropolis that sprawled beyond the eye, its beauty rivalling the homes of the gods.
In that ancient time, the land was not as it is now, and Cylith–Mahir stood upon a vast plateau. From that throne it ruled over an era of peace, a time before the demons.
It was a jewel among the known galaxies, visited by beings with power beyond reason, beings so ancient that their very whisper has faded beyond the memories of the oldest living things.
It was in this city that the prophecy was given. It was here the deal was brokered. It was here that the vow was made. It was here the pact was broken.
And it was in this place, in that ancient time, that a few betrayed the universe.
