The Fallen Kingdoms Of The Abyssal Plain

Tribal creation myth and folklore from the Northern Hemisphere, dating from 650 B.T.C. (Before the
Third Cataclysm), Antediluvian Calendar:

Hearken, children of the Ersatz gods, sons and daughters of the New Earth, for here is truth. Long
ago, before the third of Earth's moons fell fiery from the star-seared sky, there were those whom
we have come to call the First Ones. These men-who-were-not-men were the creations of the Mera,
beings from the far reaches of the limitless cosmos, whose essence still flickers latently within
the minds of all their disparate progeny. Praise the Mera, fathers of the First Ones, bondsmen of
the K'laa, sworn foes of the Z'xulth! Sired in the great spawning vats beyond the fathomless deeps
of the Pre-Cambrian sea, the First Ones throve. Those who were engineered to live on land duly
constructed the grand Antarctic Megalopolis, ultimately becoming entangled in bitter conflicts with
the hoary Serpent Kings before retreating into the subterrene depths of the vast inner world,
whereas those First Ones that had chosen the embrace of the abyssal seas were the architects of
vast and glorious submarine cities whose splendid spires and minarets towered proudly beneath the
unfathomed waves. Those grand bioluminescent cities are now long since fallen, razed and dispersed,
given over to the cruel whims of the unforgiving oceans. From the lore of our ancestors, we know
the true nature of the cosmos. We know of the hidden and silent places, the places which reside in
between the veils of reality, the places which mankind was never meant to see. All this we know...
we who survive, we who are descended from those First Ones, and who give thanks to the
gods-who-are-not-gods, for our creation, our genesis, for the breath of life that was forced into
our progenitors during the early epochs of this cratered globe. Hearken, children of the Ersatz
gods, sons and daughters of the New Earth, for here is truth...
