The tongues of flame, torrents of water, the vault of heaven and the stone crust, all creatures intelligent and stupid - here everything is made of Ether. Everything springs from it returns to it after death. Ether knows no barriers. Ether is everywhere. And its flow is life itself - the life of the Ether Universe.

The tongues of flame, torrents of water, the vault of heaven and the stone crust, all creatures intelligent and stupid - here everything is made of Ether. Everything springs from it returns to it after death. Ether knows no barriers. Ether is everywhere. And its flow is life itself - the life of the Ether Universe.

The main flow of Ether comes from the center of the Universe. It dazzles like the fresh snow - this is why it is called White Ether. Those who can curb it will be granted great power.

But very few manage to achieve that. White Ether only exists for a brief, elusive moment. Now and then, its full-flowing river splits into four currents. These currents are not as powerful, but they endure much longer.

They are called Ether of Chaos, Ether of Motion, Ether of Vitality and Ether of Synthesis.

The Ether of Chaos is scarlet like blood. The Ether of Motion is blue like skies. The Ether of Vitality is green like a freshly unfolded leaf. And the Ether of Synthesis is black like scorched stones.

These Ethers form the basis of everything existing in this Universe. When the flow of the ethers is smooth and measured, they emit pure energy; but when their pace quickens, ether whirlwinds form and give birth to matter.

With inexorable regularity the four multicolored flows of energy rush to join each other and become White Ether again. And where they mix their kaleidoscope of streams in a impetuous whirlwind, the World of the Lords begins.

The World of the Lords

This is but one of the worlds in the Ether Universe. Intelligent inhabitants of the World of Lords know that the crust under their feet in reality is just an ether whirlwind, a clot of energy. Four celestial bodies travel over that world. The Red Sun, Blue Star, Green Planet and Black Moon, named long, long ago after the ethers whose energy they emit. They do not cause high and low tides and to change the cycle of day and night is not in their power. They spend eternity upon eternity hovering in space.

But their wanderings are not idle. Time passes and a mysterious force lines up the stars in single file aimed at the center of the Universe, at the point where White Ether is created. And the time of change comes to the World of Lords...

As soon as the planets combine, their energy flows into a single blinding beam that streaks to the center of the whirlwind. It then unfolds and starts moving backwards. The World of the Lords begins to change wondrously - mountains turn into plains, troughs in the sea turn into dry land, previously unseen lands now appear in plain view and impregnable fortresses deteriorate into mirages.

The inhabitants of the World of Lords must then rewrite their history and redraft their maps. But the magical essence of the world is also completely renewed at this time.

Ether is a source of power and pure energy, sometimes referred to as magic. To the inhabitants of the World of Lords, this means the ability to change the direction and speed of ether flows. They are born with this ability - using invisible currents of energy flows, they create armor, weapons and servants... Ether is the thread from which they weave their world.

But new races appear on new lands, old spells lose their power and new ones emerge in the world. To survive, they have to learn magic anew. During brief periods of the Great Changes, they can neither be sure that their magic will create exactly what they want, or that they will see exactly what they hoped to see. Frequently something alien and unknown comes to light, and a new world forms in front of their eyes...

Like any creature destined to go through a dawn, zenith and decline in life and then to return in another incarnation after death, the World of Lords emerges, reaches its full beauteous bloom and then dies, in order to be born anew in all its wonder.
