History of the City
Unfortunately, much of our earliest history is unknown or, by scientific standards, obscured in myth. While scholarship struggles to shed light on these problems, conclusions must be provisional. Many are contentious.
Popular legend suggests there was once a global civilization, with advanced technology and great material prosperity, which was destroyed, or nearly so, through debilitating civil wars between forces aligned uncompromisingly Good or Evil. Indeed many ancient religious records proclaim similar views, particularly in the Southern Third among followers of the Laughing God. While there is no conclusive historical evidence, there are intriguing archaeological artifacts, perhaps the most impressive of which is, of course, the Origin Stone on Sanctuary Island.
No scholarly, religious, or political consensus exists around these interpretations.
