Legend of the Abyss
The Terra crumbled and the and the plants died, and the Sea consumed to land and became The Endless Ocean, and the realms under the Terra shook all the more. It is said that the god Ásvaldr looked and say the pain and turmoil that the Elves in their pride and wrought, and took their Arcane power and gave it to Humans. Only after stopping the total destruction of the world.
“Some scholars have wondered how one of The Lesser Gods were able to suddenly cause so much, and remove power from the ones who destroyed The Old Ones. Many agree that whatever caused the Tearing in the first place must have drastically weakened the Elves power. Other insist that the very act of destroying the Old Ones caused their weakness, or rather Ásvaldr’s strength.
