But there is still no meaning. There is no existence.
Yet the dark and light shared an epiphany. What if they created actual life? With a breath, a breath much more meaningful and purposeful than the last, they summoned forth the energies that gathered in the crystals. The crystals glowed, their monochromatic hues embracing the world in a bright light. When that light settled, it left myths in its wake: beings that were made from magic and dreams with souls that favored either the dark or the light.
The alignments looked upon their creations in satisfaction. Finally, they had meaning. Finally, everything was at peace and right.
But nothing lasts forever.
Over time, when the summoned sun and moon began to create days, weeks, months, years, the world and its myths began to separate. That world became split in two, one side dark and one side light, and this caused animosity between the alignments and their myths. The dark claimed the light was far too greedy as it sought absolute perfection, and the light claimed the dark was too jealous as it sought to overthrow and retaliate.
That beautiful world erupted into conflict. Mountains crumbled, trees withered, crystals deteriorated, and the waters reddened. Time reverted, night and day battling as myths and dreams ceased to exist.
It had lasted for ten centuries, that dreadful war. How did it end, you ask? With the downfall of light. At first, the light had the upperhand. It had attempted to banish the dark once and for all, but the dark had begun to feed off hatred from the light rather than the energy from the crystals. It grew in strength and decapitated the light. On that day, the crystals fell and the world weakened. Light struggled, and then disappeared altogether.
The myths of the light saved one crystal, and it is said that that is the reason that the world of dark and light still exists. Although not much is heard from the light, the myths of light still held their favor, and their strong faith was rewarded with the return of light. Yet so far, the light, has not been found.
