Imagine a typical fantasy world. Really, any will do. Elves, dwarves, paladins on horseback, all trying to save the world from a great evil. Now imagine the evil won.
This world of fantasy is now called Rumah Kedua. Many years ago a man called the [[:Reptile King]] conquered the land, and drove out the civilized people, In an age-long war called The War of Retreat. The people, on the brink of extinction, prayed to their long quiet gods. The gods gave them a chance, for that was all they could do. A choice. Retreat to the seas or be swallowed by the [[:Reptile King]]’s armies.
Five-thousand years have passed since the civilized people made that choice, and it has changed Rumah Kedua. The [[:Reptile King]] conquered the land, and obtained near-godhood. But like anyone who is not immortal, he died. The broken people of the world were not evil, but they were lawless, and the land remained a chaotic jumble of tribes and small city-states. The people of the sea adopted a very ordered lifestyle, imposed on them by their gods, their leaders, and their cruel savior, the sea.
When the free people were driven to the shores of the seas, they held out against The [[:Reptile King]]’s forces for a year while they prayed for their survival. During this time the gods held a great council in the realm of Oceanus. The gods all gave their gifts in different ways. Some were spiteful, some were benevolent, but none provided for their people for free.
