The Great Impact
In the year 1478 the Xintavu achieved their goal to create a gigantic rift on the continent of Godara that shook the land to its core. They launched a surprise attack, waging war against the unsuspecting populace. It was a terrible war with many losses on every side. The battles raged on, and after two years things looked grim for the Godarans.
Sensing impending doom on the world, the mighty phoenix race came to a hard decision. To seal the great rift permanently they were to fly directly into it, unleashing all their power in a large blast effectively sacrificing their immortality. In the end the plan was a success, sealing the passage to the abyss and destroying many demons at the same time. Peace returned to Godara for a short time… that is, until The Exodus.
