- Some dude over at a Yahoo Group called Uneternity is putting together
a net book of a world. I'm trying to make some maps for him.
the five worlds of the spiral are:
They are all named after alien Gods
The world in focus is Sanizon.
Things to take note are that the So on Sanizon, over millenia, have
forgotten that they are part of a larger civilization and have

A brief history:
Sygrus, the bard encounters the "song in the sky" (A powerful,
alien God that took the form of a song to communicate with Sygrus) and
bargains with it for a safe refuge. The song, in return, asks for his
precious possession. Sygrus offers up his necklace, given to him by a
love, which is subsequently turned into the spheres of the spiral.

failed. This took place 30,000 years (or cycles) ago. Sygrus was
by his contact with the Alien.
Age of Creation:
Freespace sprung into being, sheltering all within from the terrible
energies of wildspace. The Gods notice the existence of mortals in the
uneternity and converge on the anamoly. Sygrus becomes the founder of
High Circle, hoping that his legacy will be forever preserved. The
circle's original purpose was to carry out another portion of the deal
between the bard and the alien "song", which is to promote culture and
generally remain 'interesting'... The 'Song' is said to have

Unfortunately, due to their proximity to Sygrus, all successive
the High Circle have been insane to a degree.
Age of Miracles:
The Gods, especially those of the Lost Pantheon, reveal themselves to
So, demanding or requesting worship. Major religions are established.
Society begins to coalasce into distinct power blocs. Friction between
different racial and ethical groups grow. The first Flesh Fiend

Age of Progress:
cities and nations are established. Science flourishes. Psionic men
women are hailed as 'gifted'. The worlds forget about the High Circle

wildspace. Only Lorakinath, lord of Gold dragons, returned.

Age of Strife:
Wars erupt throughout the spiral worlds as empires reach the limit of
expansion. Advances in science from previous age all lost... or buried
beneath rubble. Sanizon was unified by an empire that lasted 3
before it was overthrown by a man named Ri'en (See Blood Dancer). He
called the Red Tyrant thereafter. 3 psionic lords rally the forces of
Sanizon and began what is called the 'Mind Wars'- Psionic supremacists
versus normal humanoids. The Age of Strife was brought to an end with
coming of Manicus, musician non-parallel. He revived the original
the So and united the 5 worlds briefly with an earth-shaking song,
Manicus. Some say he was Sygrus come again. Tshorin Manicus perished
