The Second Transcendence
From what remains of the written record documenting the period of time after the elimination of He Who Was, scholars have been able to determine that other beings began to achieve demigod-like powers in the wake of Asmodious’s betrayal. Many wars were fought and alliances formed as domains were carved and created by the surging energies of the newly empowered. Gods such as Pelor, Lathander, and Lunitari can be traced to this event in history.
It was during this same period that the primordials fully disappear from historical documents. The reason for this is unknown, but most agree it is related to a sense of failure at the exponentially growing powers within the material plane.
