A New Way
The Old Planes
The old planes are what the planes of existance were like times before mortal races were created.. Each one was ruled by a primordial, with the deities in the middle. The planes soon morphed into the Feywild, Shadowfell, and Elemental Chaos.
The primordials each had control of one main plane, and they created crude being of pure elemental matter to serve them. Soon, much fighting between the primordials led to morphs of one planes into another, making paths of Smoke, Dust, Lightning, Ooze, and others. The fighting affected the deities, so they decidied to put a stop to it. They combined the planes of Earth, Water, Air, and Fire to make the Elemental Chaos. They put many plants into the positive plane to make it the Feywild, put rocks and rubble into the Negative plane to make it the Shadowfell, and created the World and the Astral Sea, for mortals and deities respectively. Then the races were made and put on the World, with the exception of Elves in the Feywild and Drow in the Shadowfell. The old creatures of elemental matter still live in their relocated planes, but the Elemental Chaos is in constant warfare.
