    Long ago, there was the God of Creation and the God of Destruction. Creation made all pure and good things into existence, while Destruction created all the sinster and evil monsters and possessions. After creating the world, they created 4 Guardians of the elements to watch over it. Their names were Sylvania, Stellaria, Infernius and Aquarius. Centuries later, the Guardians, or Ancients felt the people were to weak compared to them and felt bad for then. So they started blessing them with materials of great power. Creation and Destruction feared that the people and the Ancients would turn on them and overthrow them. So the gods brought the Ancients all to one place and then consumed their souls, turning them into mere husks. Realizing that they still need to destroy the materials, they decided to initiate judgement on the current world and start a new one where they are in control and control everything that the peope do. Now, only you can stop them and prevent them from creating a new world where they rule everything, only you can stop Judgement.

    I always browse the "WIP" forum to see what new mods are being made. Most of the time they're just concepts with no sprites, or the sprites they do have are lacking. This is one of the rare times that is not the case. I'm really excited to see this develop.
