Mechanics & Terms
Battlefront — It is the belief of house Eskiath that teamwork and unity overcome mere force and nowhere is this more apparent than in their battlefront ability. Whenever a white creature with this ability attacks it can empower it's attacking allies, making them bigger and badder by giving them a range of useful abilities.
Long before time had a name, Dumar was created by the dragon avatars: Hotechi the Dragon of Earth, Shadare the Dragon of Fire, Yumandi the Dragon of Water, and Ghotetsu the Dragon of Wind. Yet, even after that the world was barren. Until the queens came. Yamushi the dragon of light and Darmitra the dragon of shadows. With their blessing life began on Dumar. For a time there was peace, the dragons watched over and protected their creation and the world flourished. However For good to exist there must be evil. That evil came in the form of the corruption, a dark spirit who looked upon the physical world with spite and envy with the power to turn any mind insane. Many times the corruption attempted to cross into the physical world by possesing the body of some unfortunate lord or hero. Yet tyrants are overthrown and mortals break. Finnaly the corruption set its gaze on the beings it knew could never be defeated, the dragons themselves. The Corruption entered Darmitra's mind and the queen went mad. Rampaging through the world and nearly obliterating all life on Dumar. The other dragons, in an act of desperation entombed their fallen queen in stone and buried her deep underground. Fearing they would suffer the same fate as Darmitra the dragons left Dumar with the promise that one day, when the world needed them most, they would return.
As years stretched into centuries and then Milenia the dragons passed from memory and into myth, their promise to return forgotten. In their absence The mighty Seth dynasty arose and promptly seized control over the land and once more Dumar prospered. Until the days of king Aaron Seth. Many, many millenia after its imprisonment the Corruption began to seep out of its subterranean prison and again searched for a fitting host. It found it in the Kings steward, Malignus, a powerful wizard who was seeking the key to immortality. The Corruption pierced his mind and Malignus slew his old friend in cold blood before turning his staff on the king's only child, Gabriel. In what he thought were his final moments Gabriel awakened his planeswalker spark and fled Dumar. An instant later Malignus managed to free his mind of the corruption and took his own life. Since that day the magic of Dumar began to fade. Slowly over the years the power that mages wielded withered, the once immortal elves began to die and entire races vanished. So it was for thirty seven years. until the magic of the world was all but gone. The marble throne remains empty and in the kings absence five great houses have taken command of the realm. Recently however strange rumors have begun to circulate. In the north an obelisk has been excavated and seems to radiate magic, to the east stories are told of a man who cannot die and all around the realm, whispered discussions tell tales of people who claim to have seen angels. Many disregard these tales as mere fiction and even those who believe don't grasp what it means. Now, years after his banishment... the king has returned.
