And thus, it was complete. The world was done. Perfect in all ways.
And the Tanzi were glad. Now, all that was left was to bring in those that
would populate this perfect world. Those who would live in harmony...
And thus they did open the gateways, and allowed the races to enter.
And the Humans came. Many races built cities, and planted farms, and
their life was good.
And the Elves came, both light and dark. And the light built homes in
the great forests and the dark built great cities beneath the world's surface.
And the Dwarves came, and they too built great halls beneath the world's
And the Kender came.
"Wait, wait wait, stop." Said Aqua, the Water Brother.
"What?" asked Maara, the Earth Mother.
"What was that?" asks Aqua, pointing.
"It's a Kender!" exclaims Ferra, the Fire goddess.
"Stop It, Keep them out!" shouts Aaara, God of Air.
"Look, there's another one." says Maara
And the Orcs came, and they plundered the cities of the humans.
"I got it!" Shouts Aqua. "Where's the other?"

"Would you rather have these thing here?" asks Aqua.
And the Lich King entered the gates, bringing with him his hordes. And
they settled on the Isle of the Dead.
"So be it. The race of Kender is hereby banned from Tanzigier," Says
"The race of Kender is hereby banned from Tanzigier." Says Aqua.
"The race of Kender is hereby banned from Tanzigier." Says Aaara
"The race of Kender is hereby banned from Tanzigier." Says Maara
And thus was the race of Kender banned for all time from the world of Tanzigier.
Those remaining, and all who entered thereafter became dust.
"Now, what have we missed?" asked Aqua.
Fritz get up for god's sake. Get up! They've killed Fritz. They've
killed Fritz. Those lousy stinking yellow fairies, they've killed
Fritz! Those horrible atrocity-filled vermin. Those despicable
animal warmongers. They've Killed Fritz Max - Wizards
