Legend of the Diamondstalker
Okay, so here’s the rundown:
- The Ringbuilders built this huge ring and teleported a whole lot of planets into their home solar system. Then they left or died or something. Nobody knows for sure because…
- ...Millenia later, somebody else came along, built a second ring, wiped away all information they could find about the Ringbuilders (why?) and left.
- Much, much later, somebody else came along and built a third ring. As far as anyone can tell, they didn’t leave any records at all, so no one knows who they were or what their ring is supposed to do.
- Millions of years later, life evolved to the point of being able to draw energy from the [Transitive Plane] network the Ringbuilders left behind, giving rise to Magic, and eventually, Gods and the Soul.
