The Nephilim


The Nephilim were on the earth in those days—and also afterward—when the Benei Elohim, the sons of God, went to the daughters of men and had children by them. They were the heroes of old, men of renown.

          -Genesis 6:2

The sky was rent and all our towering citadels fell, for the Benei had come.  With them came wonder—and terror.

          -Chronicles of the Order 1:1

 

The Nephilim


The Nephilim were on the earth in those days—and also afterward—when the Benei Elohim, the sons of God, went to the daughters of men and had children by them. They were the heroes of old, men of renown.

          -Genesis 6:2

The sky was rent and all our towering citadels fell, for the Benei had come.  With them came wonder—and terror.

          -Chronicles of the Order 1:1

 

The war against the Benei lasted only days.  Our armies—with their missiles, aircraft, armaments of wholesale destruction—broke apart against the sharp edge of the Benei’s magic.  Our cities fell,  the survivors scattered.  The Benei secluded themselves into cities to call their own, finding those among us who welcomed their rule. 

For sixty years, the Benei remake the world within their enclaves, building a society fashioned for their ends.  Surrounding these lands is the Waste, where tribes of wilders—those who refused to come under the Benei’s reign—live in hiding.  Lawless and free, they prize only one thing: survival.

It is a world clamoring for a hero of old, a person of renown. 

If only it were that simple.
