The Shifting Shards
Soul-shards of the fallen god
One of the most perplexing features of this new land, is the semi-common shards, which are each tiny fragments of a massive crystal used to trap the soul of Ausar. Ausar wished solely to destroy all life. This psychotic pursuit would have culminated the end of all of the gods, himself included. Even the worst of the other gods understood that life itself was necessary, even if they sought to make it as miserable as possible for all living things. In what is remembered as the only time all of the gods have banded together, they entrapped Ausar’s soul in this massive crystal, which was then shattered and spread across the land intending that it never be reconstructed.
Ausar’s soul remains, though shattered, trapped inside the pieces of the crystal. Few of the shards contain enough of Ausar’s soul to have a wit of their own, though they all absorb the energy of anything near them. Some seek to leverage this power, while other seek to further destroy the shards. Even fewer still, seek to reunite the shards in the hopes of awakening Ausar.
