Abydion, the Fifth City
Long ago, in a forgotten time, legends say that ancient humans left Earth and met others who walked among the stars. Some say peace prevailed, others speak of constant war. Some say humanity went boldly forth, others that they sent False Men as their proxies. Some say we ruled the Those Who Walk Among the Stars, others that we were their pawns.
Most agree that, in time, men mingled with the others and grew to become Starwalkers themselves, though there is disagreement over whether this was the genesis of the Skinchangers or if the Changers were merely the most suited to the transformation.
At the dawn of the Age of Man, those humans who remained on Earth rose up to expel the Starwalkers in a long and bloody war. Ultimately, after centuries of war, mankind triumphed and built the city of Abydion upon the remains of their foes’ final stronghold.
