The Descendants of Tarakona
The True Gods and the Discovery of Magic
There have always been religion and belief systems in Tarakona, but it was not until 1,400 years ago that the True Gods revealed themselves. For reasons unknown, their existence slowly became recognized through visions and preformed miracles. Feats that are common by today’s standards were unheard of at the time. As the abilities so commonly displayed today by clerics and paladins spread through the land, so too did the word of the True Gods.
At about the same time magic came to Tarakona. Legend speaks of the arcane power the Dragon Lords controlled, but never had the civilized races shown such talent. Some say the Eladrin brought the knowledge with them from the Feywild and it only took time for it to spread outside the forests. Others claim it was a gift from the True Gods. Some even say that it was a natural evolution of sorts. Whatever its source, as the knowledge of the True Gods spread, so too did magic.
