Prior to the existence of the seven races, dwarves, elves, humans, imps, lizards, orcs and wizards the world was dominated by the eternals; characteristic of all these races. Their largest, known civilisation was based at the Academy, a centre dedicated to magic and the study of Source.
Towards the end of their reign, the Seven Gods elected to gift source to the world itself, within races bearing their features. The eternals as a whole were against this idea, however with Fane's assistance they were sealed in the void and over time became the creatures known as the voidwoken, mere fragments of the species they were.
