When the world was new, the Gods first made the Dragons. They then tasked these beings, who were wise beyond their years and with great magic of their own, with creating the rest of those that live in the world. The dragons set about first creating the flora and fauna. Although many of the Dragons’ names were lost to annals of time there are a few that are still known. Many of these dragons have become synonymous with some gods or goddesses. The sentient races came to be during the Dragon War.
Though we know that Gold, Blue and White dragons were tasked with creating beings, so many claim to have been created by them that the truth has been lost in a sea of half truths and lies.
