A Tale of Darkness

by Jacob Ruder

As civilization expanded, two families were gifted power. They used their powers, light and darkness, to destroy their enemies. When darkness and light could no longer coexist, the light wiped away the villainous darkness. New countries spread forth from the light that represented earth, wind, fire, water, sound, strength, healing, and visibility. Each power broke off from the light to establish their own countries. Long since the defeat of darkness, light has held the other countries in line with an iron fist. But what happens when the king of light goes missing? Will darkness find its way back? Will a rebellion rise that would shake the very continent and bring forth an age of uncertainty?
