The Age of Expansion

130 000 BG - 80 000 BG

A Civil War in the Spirit World breaks out between three Factions, over whether to create another universe over which all the spirits can reign over. The Ceuph don't want it, the Doman want to create it, but have minimal control, and the Xanthura want to create slaves and worshipers for their bidding. After hundreds of constant war, the Ceuph are conquered by the Xanthura. With this event, the war subsides, the Xanthura ruling the east, while the Doman have control over a bigger eastern section. For thousands of years it stayed like this, the creation of the new Universe still in dispute, and the Doman and Xanthura still enemies. In 90 000 BG the war was refueled, and in 88 700 BG, the final battle took place, where the Doman won.

It is a region in the Spirit World much more similar to Earth, with blue skies. The Humans are left here to fend for themselves for one thousand years.

For 200 years everything went according to plan, and the humans flourished in the Clear Zone. However, in 58 800 BG, one clan of the humans' gained a new attribute. They were able to find out how to transform Energybending into a new art. Through their twisted efforts, the clan created Blackfirebending, where they could make an evil, dark substance. This clan became Blackshock. They used this weapon to terrorize the other clans. The Human Test Run was swiftly aborted.

The Blackshock clan was punished by the Spirits, forced to live a life of hardship, to be trapped in the Spirit World forever. The other humans were literally paused, and left for a few thousand years.
