Fortuna - Magitek City of Crossroads
Nothing is known about the death of the gods other than it was quick. All ten of the gods disappeared from the heavens over the course of an hour and their absence was felt around the world. Holy men were left defenseless, demons were free to roam the streets, and criminals took advantage of the chaos.
In the period before The Sundering the realm was mostly dependent on divine magic. Arcane magic was very primitive and those who practiced it were often considered heretics. Post Sundering all of the divine magic left the realm and few were able to use magic to defend themselves from the terrors waiting for the gods to drop their guard.
Angels reported from the heavens that the gods had in fact disappeared and their threads, the magical core of a god that grants them divine right, were left behind and powerless. The realm was in shambles. Amur, one of the most respected mages in the realm, acted quickly to form The Guild for Arcane Research and Control. With this center of powerful arcane energy behind him he was able to restore peace and set down new laws for all to follow.
