Dracobellum; The Great War
The Staff of Ichor
Long ago, when the world was young and the race of Man was yet to be born, the Council of Peoples met together with one realization: They would always live at the behest of the Gods, to be destroyed or created at their whim. the Elves sought a solution to this horror, that their lives may one day end(For in those days Death had yet to claim an elven soul). So they devised a plan. Elven hands were not skilled enough to craft something so powerful, so they tricked the Dwarves into crafting a staff, supposedly for the youngest of the gods, Bathet, to wield. Once the staff was constructed, the elves stole it, and imbued it with great power, in order to slay a god if necessary. Thus was the divide driven between Elves and Dwarves, and for thousands of years they would battle for control of the Staff until the origin of the war passed from record into legend, and some say that the Staff of Ichor never existed to begin with.
