One thousand years ago a powerful being appeared on the material plain. He had the power to sway the minds and hearts of humans and zealously believed that humans alone should walk the earth. Him and his great army marched across the world driving back and suppressing all but humans. He formed a huge empire, spanning the world and set himself up as the emperor of this kingdom. He challenged the protector God of nature Talveich and defeated him through trickery. From him he stole the heart of nature and used it to control the forces of nature itself in his campaign of world domination. To assure that Talveich could never rise again he dismantled him into 4 elements which he then split and trapped in 24 objects which he hid throughout the world. Finally he outlawed all magic and suppressed technology forcing the world to remain the same through his tyranny.
