The Bounded

From Vaporstory

[edit] Origins

The beginnings of "The Bounded" are lost in the crinkled pages of time. But the stories live on through a rich oral tradition. The legends go all the way back to the birth of the twins: Prymos and Ralaia - the beginning of the form and essence of magic. They were the first-born of Irith, who blessed them both above all other gods and goddesses. They guarded the secrets of Magic throughout time.

With the development of the humans, Prymos and Ralaia decided to bless them with the spirit and knowledge of Magic. They started by giving all humans some magic for all time. But the humans misused the Magic and used it to hurt each other and the world. So the twins chose a few worthy people from among the masses to pass along the higher levels of Magic - twelve levels, to be specific - to moderate how Magic was disseminated in the world. The most powerful Magic was then reserved for those who had devoted their lives to its study.
