The Creation of Mietth.

The Nothing Before there was a beginning, there was no Sun, no moon, and no stars, because there was no sky. There were no plants, no animals, on the earth because there was no earth. There were no fish, and no krakken, because there was no sea. Before there was a beginning, there was no sky, no earth, no sea. And there was no beginning forever. And there was no beginning forever. And there was no beginning forever. And then there was a beginning. Vanen was born from this eternal void; it was from the void which Vanen sprang. He was a giant man. A fully formed, whole man. A powerful man. A naked man. And in his nakedness, he took his massive hand and carved out the sky and the firmament. And with his massive foot, he stomped and created the earth and the underearth. And and with his urine, he created the sea. And it was in this way that Vanen created the world.

Vanen and Haga And after the world was created, Vanen created Haga, the first female deity, to share the world with him. And Vanen and Haga were man and wife. And from them came the Sun, and the moon, and the stars. And from them came the plants and the animals. And from them came the fish, and the krakken. And from them, came the men, and elves, and dwarves, and halflings, and all the humanoids that walk the earth and live in the sky and live in the air.

And after they created the universe, Vanen and Haga

The Vicytyrians were a patriarchal, martial race, and their Creator and Protector, Vanen, was the God of War, the Giver and Taker of Life, the God of Storms and

Iron smelting for weapons and agriculture, as well as alphabet and writing, have been the standard in Darrun for five centuries. The country was founded by the hero Victyr and his followers, who sailed across the Jara Sea to escape the devastation of their home country, Pulag, which was destroyed by flood after their main deity, Vanen, was mortally wounded in battle with Haga, his lover/arch-nemesis. Vanen’s blood spilled out to flood and destroy Pulag

Makkab, the God of Knowledge & Magic, his priests served as the scribes, accountants, poets, alchemists and magicians of Darrun. It was their job to preserve the knowledge of the written language that was carried over from ancient Pulag. To this end they had Holy Schools of Makkab in cities and towns across Darrun. Unlike the Yaksonovites, the Makkabites did not make an attempt to democratize their knowledge during and after the Jutt Invasion. As a result, mathematics, the written word, and the magical arts are in danger of being completely forgotten in Darrun.

Yaksonov, the God of Healing, his priests served as doctors and surgeons. Medicine consisted mostly of herbal remedies, talismans and prayers, but a history of warfare lead to advances in battlefield medicine, and they were proficient in setting broken bones, stopping bleeding, and treating infections. Amputation and trepanning were common practices. During and after the Jutt Invasion, the Yaksonovites shared their Art with as many people as they could, while before the invasion they had closely guarded the knowledge as to ensure their positions. Due to their forethought, knowledge of medicinal arts and healing survived the dissolution of the Sect, and helped many to survive the Dark Years.
