As soon as the human calendar reached 1000, the world came down upon them. No longer content with the many islands and scattered dock-towns, the bestial peoples grew violent and lashed out at the main continent. The humans, who exclusively owned the land, fought hard and long to keep their precious footing in the vast water world. But humans proved no match for the brute force and numbers of the beast people.
Those who did not fall were scattered. Forced away from the continent, the remaining humans took refuge among the islands and dock-towns, building upon what the bestial peoples left behind. Although anger and resentment was strong, the power of the human race had become insignificant. In time, life became calm and mankind settled into its new accommodations.
As centuries passed, humans forgot the power and numbers they once possessed. The romantic idea of their own continent became a bedtime story for children. Humans adapted to life at sea and ocean and never did it seem out of the ordinary.
