Dominions II: Shepherds of Creation scenario


Järnsaxa

The Sword Wielder
Lady of Order and Punishment
Lady of Soothing Winds






Hallowed land.
Misty land.
Land of Milk and Honey.

And She came.

She was a bodied spirit and had the power to create.

And She said: I am the creator, I will forge the world.

And She brougth life to the misty land.

Under Her dominion plants and trees began to grow. The hallowed fields came alive with creatures small and large. And She protected them from strife and storms.

And the Shepherd of Creation said: I am the creator, order and growth are mine to give.

And She took from her own spirit and gave to the creatures of the misty mountains so they became aware.

And She said: I am the creator, I have made you what you are. You are dwarves and you have my spirit.

And she taught the dwarves how to forge items and they made her a sword to wield.

She took the gift and said: I will wield this sword, I am Järnsaxa.

And She took from her own spirit and gave to the creatures of the misty plains so they became aware.

And She said: I am the creator, I have made you what you are. You are vanir and above all in the creation, you have my spirit.

And the vanir multiplied and populated the fertile plains and misty forests.

But soon the vanir met with lesser beings. Humans of fickle moods. They were not wise and calm in spirit as the vanir and fought amongst themselves. The vanir found their weakness and dominated them and made them into servants and brought them peace.

But the humans lived in halls of wood and stone. The vanir became envious and asked their Shepherd why the lesser beings had homes and they did not.

The Shepherd of Creation said: I am the creator, I make it all.

And She made halls in the mists for the vanir to live.


Then came the Demiurge.
It said: I am the creator. I am your God. I am Baphomet.

And the dwarves and the vanir answered in chorus: You are not the creator, we worship Järnsaxa.

The Demiurge became fire and rage. He called on Järnsaxa, ready to devour her, but Järnsaxa was of the same spirit and refused to heed the call.

The Demiurge retreated to the center of it all, the Throne of the World, where the humans were born. Here he brought angels into existance and sent them to command the humans and unmake the vanir of the misty lands.

Järnsaxa realized the weakness of the Demiurge and called the vanir to arms. She saw that other bodied spirits followed her lead. If one of them would capture the Throne of the World there would be a new Demiurge and a new era would begin. An era without humans.

And the war began.
