- The rediscovery of the subworlds
The Qhot-naun-phaqiasiari planet (the-World-of-the-countless-wonders) is a planet that has become permanently covered by electrical and magical storms. The surface of this planet became so porous, however, that all the water accumulated in the planet's core transformed into ice, due to pressure.
However, all this happened long after its formation and, before the catastrophe that changed to this planet for ever, there was astonishing events very important in its History.
The Planet Qhot-naun-phaqiasiari pre-archean (pre-discovery era)
In each crossroad, in each palace, in each cart, there was associated with it a secret subworld. These subworlds were influenced by the thinking of intelligent beings that lived in Qhot-naun-phaqiasiari: each inhabitant could create a individual world for himself (although this would take a long time to occur).
Qhot-naun-phaqiasiari was then a place full of all kinds of life and full of wonders; the various intelligent races present in Qhot had their livelihood guaranteed: wide meadows, immense fields of grain, and a mild and temperate climate made the equatorial part of Qhot a prosperous place to live. There they settled diverse species like the Elves of Qhot-naun-phaqiasiari (with diverse subspecies), the Mawi Warrior Elves, the Humans, the Yáwohhiur, etc.
However, the discovery of the existence of the subworlds took many centuries to happen. Its revelation to the common people was even later.
The first discovery of the subworlds
The first race who discovered the subworlds were the Yáwohhiur. They carefully kept the secret for them for a long time, even centuries.
Moreover, they had very hard laws to prevent the information of the existence of the subworlds from spreading not only to other species but to non-privileged sections of their own society.
First, they used them as a source of knowledge, watching and listening at a distance. They could know all the knowledge and techniques of the peoples who inhabited those subworlds. The Yáwohhiur patiently learned many of these techniques and knowledge. Over time, they learned not only to listen and to know the techniques that these people used but could enter these subworlds, where their powers were the powers of gods. Many Yáwohhiur fell into madness at that time and tried to raise empires of blood and fire within their subworlds.
And, before they could stop them, some of these Yáwohhiur even came to fuse several subworlds in one to govern them with more comfort.
This led to the so-called "crisis of the conquest of subworlds".
The Yáwohhiur, the close of the subworlds and Odranæ
The Yáwohhiur, who are, however, a very wise species with wide experience in dealing with groups of their own kind, rebels or megalomaniacs, soon stoped these individuals and patiently studied what could have triggered this process of madness and what would be the measures to prevent it from happening again.
The agreed measures, nevertheless, were not as subtle as one would expect of Yáwohhiur, deciding —instead of education or awareness — by prohibition.
Therefore, they decided to restrict access to all known subworlds. After five years of effort Note 1, the Yáwohhiur managed to control all known subworlds associated with things or objects and almost completely restrict their access.
The mechanism by which this control was established was based on Textures of Essences Note 2.
The controls were so exhaustive that they prevented access to the subworlds to a considerable amount of Yáwohhiur who had legitimately attempted it, without any harmful or conquering purpose.
But the control increased even more and only the Yáwohhiur without fault and dedicated to the investigation could access to a subworld from then on. Even those authorized to access the subworlds were closely watched from outside and subjected to frequent psychological tests and strict schedules.
For the Yáwohhiur who did not fulfill these requirements, it was, from then on, much more difficult, if not impossible, to be able to accede to a subworld.
Odranæ, a Yáwohhiuric apprentice with a great intellect tried, unsuccessfully, to seek permission to enter a very interesting subworld that showed signs of advanced technology.
The Yáwohhiuric authorities denied permission repetedly since a cousin of his, Apholdamapaistos, had been imprisoned for invasion and conquest of a subworld.
Faced with the impossibility of accessing an existing subworld, Odranæ thought very carefully about the possibility of creating a subworld by himself. This idea did not seem impossible to him: little or nothing he had studied on the theory that the Yáwohhiur had about the formation of the subworlds and therefore could not know that the task that awaited to him was almost impossible.
But when someone confronts a problem with great imagination, without prejudices and with many accumulated knowledge, it is sometimes possible to find an alternative route, never before explored Note 3.
Odranæ soon intuited that there was a possibility of creating his own subworld, only for himself. However, even before he could try, he needed to know more about the subworlds. He stole several books from a famous Yáwohhiuric scholar of the subworlds, Aonastes. Several years later, when Odranæ was about to achieve his feat, he would ask for help from Aonastes himself, who would become his close collaborator.
The Yáwohhiur thought that the subworlds in Qhot-naun-phaqiasiari were associated with all the inert things existing on the planet, and that since their formation they had been kept unharmed and very infrequently new subworlds were created.
Odranæ discovered that this was not exactly so: the subworlds were created, but at a much greater rate than was known and also were destroyed many times. The most important discovery of Odranæ was, however, that the subworlds can also be associated with a living being and not only with inert things.
Odranæ deduced that since the Yáwohhiur were forbidden to enter the thoughts of other Yáwohhiurs, to create a subworld that was associated exclusively to himself would be the only way to circumvent the controls to enter a subworld.
After an appetizing meal of ants, Odranæ lay down on his favorite pallet to sleep. He had a really strange dream. Becoming interested in his own subworld, Odranæ had unknowingly made it begin to exist. In this dream Odranæ was taken before enormous beings of stone, the Neldra.
Neldra, by titou, modified by Jakeukalane
These beings, although he didn't know, came from his own subworld, that would be later known as Odranærya.
As so often happens in Milegu, an event without an obvious cause had happened, since its cause was in the future (xiwalianqué).
With the help of the Neldra, Odranæ knew how to create his own subworld and definitively circumvent the protections of the Yáwohhiuric officials. Having only briefly strolled through Odranærya, Odranæ fell in love with his own subworld and decided to live forever in it.
Before entering his subworld, he published in several different media his discovery that the subworlds were also associated with each individual and that the control that the Yáwohhiuric officials performed was useless in the face of these subworlds.
The brief message he published in the instant press Note 4 read:
"I'm Odranæ, a subworld investigator. I want to make this happy news known: each Yáwohhiur is able to create a simple subworld associated with oneself. These subworlds are not under the control of repressive officials. Enjoy your worlds: I am already in mine. Bye."
In other media, his message was longer, explicitly detailing the steps he had taken.
After his revelation, he arranged everything possible to be safe within his subworld without further contact with the outside.
Odranæ in his subworld was immortal and would not perish unless his subworld was destroyed.
The consequences of Odranæ's revelation were immediate: in spite of the timid reactions of Yáwohhiur scholars in all the Yáwohhiuric countries denying any possibility of creating their own subworlds, the news spread rapidly across all social classes and there were few who tried to create their own subworld.
As revealed with the Odranærya subworld, the subworlds associated with an individual are the easiest to create and by simply thinking about the idea and exploring the mind, the subworld already has the bases to be created. The total creation of the subworld (which allows it to be visited and acquire consistency), depends on somewhat more complex issues, such as mathematics and not very advanced physics.
Reactions to the crisis of the own subworlds
Although the spread of knowledge of how to create a subworld was dazzling, the strict prohibition that had been established for so long to inform other species, prevented other beings from knowing at the moment, not only the existence of the subworlds, but the innumerable possibilities of creation that Odranæ had opened.
However, the suspicions that other races always had, remained there: fortuitous encounter with subworlds, negletcs of the Yáwohhiur that have the right to trade (who were quickly discredited or made to dissappear)Note 5, etc...
The revelation of Odranæ had made all Yáwohhiur, regardless of their social caste, aware of the existence of the subworlds, which in itself it was a catastrophe from the point of view of the Yáwohhiur leaders and the officials who protected access to the Subworlds.
This situation perplexed them at first, but soon they overcame it and they made careful measures to prevent the information from reaching other species.
Martial law was imposed, the borders of the eleven Yáwohhiuric countries were closed, the instantaneous newspapers that had published the news ceased to transmit news and the emitters ceased to emit: a total control of the information was imposed. Regular foreign trade also stopped, with the activity being controlled by the army —in its contacts with other species—. As a result, the expansion of this information was limited, although it is true that after 2 or 3 years almost all of the Yáwohhiuric population knew about the incident and that personal subworlds could be created.
This had enormous repercussions in the already very changing society of the Yáwohhiur. The high population density of the Yawohiric states had been a rather serious problem and this problem was substantially alleviated when a considerable number of individuals decided to "migrate" to their own subworlds.
Although roughly the crisis had been solved in a reasonable way for the interests of the Yáwohhiur, it was undoubtedly the starting point for subsequent changes that would result in the rest of the species not only knowing the existence of the subworlds and its usefulness for gathering information and advanced techniques, but also the possibility of creating own subworlds. But for this knowledge to become widely known, there were still many hardships to happen in Erakykima.
The quest for "the secret of de Yáwohhiur": the Committee and the Council
Of all measures taken to avoid the spread of the information of the existence of the subworlds, the one that was worse received not only by the common people but by the rest of the species was, undoubtedly, the limitation of commerce or, more precisely, the substitution by military of commercial intermediaries before other races.
This was due to a multitude of factors. Limitations of information, although not frequent, were not something extraordinary for the Yáwohhiur or for other species. Qhot in those times was not exactly a peaceful place. Nor was it unknown the limitation of movements, the forced conscripts to maintain the army nor the obligation to evacuate an area.
All these reactions were normal in the Yáwohhiuric states in the face of unexpected situations such as natural disasters, wars, looting, etc.
However, the limitation of trade and its military control, apart from preventing the existence of the subworlds from being leaked to other species, also aroused the suspicions of many, because it was a very unusual measure.
Obviously, the rejection to this decision was not only because of the extraordinary nature of it, but because of the enormous economic losses that it entailed for both the Yáwohhiur and the species that sold their products through Yáwohhiur intermediaries and, in general, for all merchants.
"The secret of the Yáwohhiur" as was hitherto called by other races of Qhot, became an incessant quest and its discovery a goal to fulfill. Such a "secret" would explain why the sudden transformation of the Yáwohhiuric society of warriors and hunter-gatherers into a fully sedentary advanced society with technology far superior to that of other civilizations, older than the Yáwohhiur. Also it was included in the "secret" the mysterious and vertiginous decrease of population density of the Yáwohhiur, as well as the state of military emergency.
Several species of Elves, half-elves, humans and other humanoids (such as the Blekmyae of Erakykima) established a Committee to achieve among all to bring light to the Yáwohhiuric mystery and also to end the commercial blockade that prevented contact with any Yáwohhiur that was not part of the military.
In order to ascertain the secrets of the Yáwohhiur they proceeded with caution: they would not gain anything by alarming the authorities and the precaution in times of martial law was absolutely necessary.
In order to address the problem, they decided to openly complain to the Yáwohhiuric authorities by taking up the common disadvantage of the Yáwohhiur social revolution: the military control of trade.
Although the Yáwohhiuric merchants themselves were the most severely damaged by that control, the Committee presented, before the Yáwohhiur, in their search of the Secret, with a convincing and partially true story, and that allowed them to send an embassy to the Yáwohhiuric realms to investigate on the ground.
The delegate of the commission, an Elf of Fire Blood, was settled in the most important Yáwohhiuric capital (Vaelamieelu), supposedly to negotiate the restitution of trade on behalf of the rest of traders and intermediaries of other species.
This Elf of Fire Blood, named Yzsýsi’auh Note 6, argued before the Yáwohhiur goverment that the economic losses generated by the control of commerce made it impracticable to continue buying and selling products to the Yáwohhiur: commercial intermediaries of other races had begun to withdraw their businesses in the Yáwohhiuric area, using alternative routes, in some cases cheaper (so retrieving such routes would be very complicated). He also told them that less and less merchants would dare to trade goods, for fear that their goods would be requisitioned by the Yáwohhiuric authorities.
Although these authorities trusted on the good faith of the merchants and their representative, they never put in jeopardy their secret: during the stay of Yzýsi'auh in Vaelamieelu, was escorted at any moment by a numerous elite squadron that prevented any kind of approach to the common Yáwohhiur.
The negotiations were rather slow; the months passed and Yzsýsi'auh remained confined in a small house on the outskirts of Vaelamieelu (outside the great walls) waiting for the officials to prepare a convincing offer.
The visit concluded with a minimum agreement between the interests represented by Yzsýsi'auh and the central Yáwohhiuric government. As soon as he reached the Bloodelvish territory, in Hammpal, he called for an urgent meeting of the Committee.
The visit of the Elf of Fire Blood, although it did not solve any of the commercial problems of the nations represented in the Committee (the opening to non-military intermediaries was minimal and very slow), it confirmed the suspicions that the other species had with the Yáwohhiur: the secret existed and facing of an exceptional situation in which the other species could learn of this secret the Yáwohhiur were even willing to leave aside the diplomatic courtesies, keeping incommunicado to a delegate that deserved a greater respect.
The Committee decided to stop pressing on trade issues and became a Council: the Council on the Secrecy of the Yáwohhiur.
This Council determined that in the face of the social instability that the Yáwohhiuric society was experiencing and its need to re-negotiate with the outside world sooner or later, the revelation of the Secret was only a matter of time.
To speed up this process, the Council contacted more species like the Yuyh'nü, winged humanoid mystics and other Elves who had no contact with the Yáwohhiur: the number of species that joined the disquisitions gradually increased.
The Council not only devote itself to in-depth investigation of the Yáwohhiur, but it also looked with magnifying lass into the history of each species of Qhot to find any kind of clue that would lead to discovering the longed-for Secret.
One of the races that was left out of the Council were the Elves of the Glowing Blood (esgoig ve sa’ Sa’dlse Segstsa’dveriedle or Sa’dveriedle in bloodelvish language). In spite of having some relation with the Elves of Fire Blood (cultural, rather than genetic), its expeditious and violent methods made that the rest of speces had reluctance to inform them of its advances.
Elves of the Glowing Blood are the most elusive elven Note 7 speces, even more than the Silvan Elves (Anxi’ellehë) and the most mysterious.
Despite the Council's attempts to keep the Sa'dveriedle apart, they failed to do so since they had bribed some members of the Council acting as their informers.
While the Elves of the Glowing Blood sought to reach a quick solution, the Council took three more years to issue a report that took into account all the relevant data of the investigation.
In it could be read the detailed descriptions of all the strange behaviors of the Yáwohhiur in foreign territory in the last 300 years and the extraordinary events of each of the species down to the smallest detail. It even included in the report the fortuitous discovery of an subworld by the Blekmyae of Erakykima.
However, among the dozens of events relevant to the investigation that concerned them, the report also included thousands and thousands of events that could not be verified. These events, invented or the product of the natural superstition of peasants or uneducated warriors, buried beneath them any trace of the subworlds.
Therefore, the final analysis did not identify what could be the Secret of the Yáwohhiur and the brief conclusion was that the Yáwohhiur had at their disposal a very developed technology and too advanced to have been developed by themselves. Also, that technology was used almost exclusively for hidden purposes.
It was also ruled out that a race that inhabited Qhot would have given them such knowledge, since the mechanics of some Yáwohhiuric devices that had fallen into the hands of the Council were clearly designed under different physical conditions to those of Qhot Note 8.
The possibility of extraqhotnian beings (diminutive of extraqhotnaunphaqiasiarian) was not even contemplated since the skies were very guarded not only at that moment but from the antiquity.
In short, the Council had found reliable evidence that the Yáwohhiur used very advanced technology of unknown origin to maintain infrastructures of an also unknown type.
The Bloodelvish War
Seeing that the Council did not admit them in their deliberations and that the investigations had come to a standstill (the years passed without the Council deciding to take more drastic measures than sending spies to Yáwohhiuric territories, very fast uncovered), the Elves of the Glowing Blood decided move on to action.
Among the Elves of the Glowing Blood, most of them religious fanatics worshiping the deities of natutre —but with the bloodthirsty tendency to end the lives of all those who approach their territories Note 9—, there were many who saw with very bad eyes the use of technologies so advanced without the Yáwohhiur had the knowledge about these technologies Note 10.
When they were ready, the Elves of the Glowing Blood released a plague, known by the name of the Plague of the Glowing Blood, with very peculiar features Note 11, which dynamited the technological foundations of the Yáwohhiur and their ability to control access to the subworlds (which many times caused some Yáwohhiur to be trapped in them).
The Plague was a set of microorganisms that fed on metals and other specific substances that made up the technological gadgets of the Yáwohhiur.
The Elves of the Glowing Blood appeared before the Yáwohhiur, veiledly threatening them to find out their secret, and in the midst of chaos and destruction, they also revealed the betrayals of the other species and the existence of the Council.
The Yáwohhiur reacted unbelievably: while all their key infrastructures were being attacked by the Plague, they decided to save as much information and technology as possible by enclosing it in multiple subworlds and standing up to the Elves of the Glowing Blood.
The Yáwohhiur ferociously expelled them from their territories, although as time passed, their position was weaker due to the effects of the Plague on their communications and armament.
They also mobilized the army forcefully in front of the Plague and attacked bloodelvish villages in the jungle in retaliation.
The Yáwohhiur, in their desperate counterattack, contacted some species of the Council, such as the Blemmyae of Erakykima or the High Elves (Anxi'ulluë), leaving aside other Elvish species, due mistrust.
These were very high-level contacts, calling for the dissolution of the Council and the protection of the Yáwohhiur against the Elves of the Glowing Blood (ie participation in the war).
Although the Elves of the Glowing Blood did never say that the Plague had been unleashed by them, one only had to look at the color of their skin and the color of the waves of strange substance that composed the Plague to realize that its origin was similar.
These contacts lasted barely a day and a half, during which the Yáwohhiur negotiators refused to reveal the Secret, despite the pressures they received. The Secret, according to the Yáwohhiur, had not been preserved for the purpose of becoming technologically superior to other races, but because of the danger of its spread among all species and social classes.
The agreement was reached between the Blemmyae, the High Elves, the Yuyh'nü and the Yáwohhiur.
The former provided enormous contingents to repel the Elves of the Glowing Blood of the Yáwohhiuric territories and also assist in the investigations to end the Plague.
The Yáwohhiur promised to reveal the Secret to the leaders of these species once the war had concluded.
Although the Sa'dveriedle was rapidly expelled from Yáwohhiuric territory, the Plague continued to wreak havoc for almost two years. It seemed almost indestructible and the only thing the joint forces of the High Elves, Blemmyae, Yuyh'nü, and Yáwohhiur had managed to do was to contain the scattered small groups of Plague, always temporarily.
The Plague's ability to multiply and subdivide into independent entities made any attempt of containment useless: when a Plague fragment was surrounded, it simply overflowed the encirclement.
Despite the two years of fighting the Plague, it was destructive only for a short period of time, as the Yáwohhiur quickly learned to protect their devices.
Although it did not destroy as many devices as it did at first, the ruin of the Yáwohhiuric realms was almost complete: communications were almost non-existent and the standard of living fell back several centuries.
The Plague continued to destroy roads and fields, which made hunger and struggles for food to appear very soon.
Pjyuyu, the Yáwohhiuric kingdom situated further east was the last place where the Plague came, greatly diminished due to its clashes with the armies that roamed through all central Erakykima.
This kingdom had time to prepare conscientiously in front of the Plague, protecting the roads, hiding the metallic wits and other mechanical devices to avoid that they were affected by the Plague and attacking with all its force where it was sighted a fragment of Plaga, following the strategy to attack one fragment at a time.
This strategy, although apparently leaving the region unprotected against any other fragment that penetrated its territory, was much more effective than the one carried out by the Coalition: all of those tiny pieces of Plague were effectively destroyed, which prevented that a moribund fragment joint with a healthy one.
The Pjyuyu kingdom and the breaking of the Pact
The Yáwohhiuric kingdoms often functioned as a single entity, especially when it came to trade or foreign affairs, but there were always small quarrels that were the result of some cultural divergences.
These divergences had not, in the recent past, caused any civil war among the Yáwohhiur. However, in ancestral times, the Yáwohhiuric tribes that founded each of the states were rivals in every sense and wars had happened very frequently until the Great Yáwohhiur Pact eradicated them.
Pjyuyu, the easternmost part of the Yáwohhiuric kingdoms, and the one with the greatest presence of the jungle, had always been the most problematic: a slight colonization, its strategic position for trade, and the least identity of the Yáwohhiur of that place in relation to its territory made Pjyuyu the least peaceful state of all.
Another of the customs rooted in Pjyuyu that would be fundamental for the course of events was the burial of houses and, above all, the storage of food in huge watertight earthenware containers to protect them from the enormous humidity.
The ancestral enmity between the Pjyuyuian Yáwohhiur and the rest was heightened by the lack of food. The incursions on the Pjyuyu border and attacks on its citizens by peasants from other kingdoms became more frequent and increasingly violent.
The abundance of food among the Pjyuyuian Yáwohhiur was due to a multitude of factors: simple prevention or the presence of fewer Plague fragments in Pjyuyu was not enough to explain the abundance of food in the kingdom. And, although in Pjyuyu many Yáwohhiur participated and died less in the war and therefore the fields were more attended, nor was that the main reason.
The key to pjyuyuian prosperity was its (underground) storage methods that did not rely heavily on technologies that might have been damaged by the Plague, that its crops were already much more productive (due to a careful choice of minerals present in the ground) and that their diet depended to a much greater extent on the berries collected in the forest than the diet of other kingdoms (mostly still based on ants).
The tension between populations near the kingdom of Pjyuyu grew and, seeing that life had been almost unchanged in that kingdom, they began to ask themselves questions.
Although the Pjyuyians did not go hungry they did still have important problems. Their reaction to the external hostility was cold and indifferent, denying sharing their resources with other Yáwohhiur, which earned them the rejection of the totality of the rest of the Yáwohhiuric kingdoms, not just the common people.
But the worst was happening in the border towns, where more and more daring incursions into Pjyuyian territory in search of food and women.
The reaction in Pjyuyu was first to try to calm the mood by installing a large fence of a flexible material Note 12, to prevent the massive entry of foreign Yáwohhiur to Pjyuyu and, also, to prevent kidnappings and attacks.
The Yáwohhiur of Pjyuyu then tried, once their borders were safe, to begin distributing food to those Yáwohhiur who collaborated, whether or not they were Pjyuyians.
However, before this aid was set, some noble Yáwohhiur interpreted the fence as an attempt to forge walls, an action totally forbidden by the Great Pact, and they were immediately put into action.
These Yáwohhiur of the nobility, with the pretension exclusively to enforce their respect to the law, used several stratagems to make the conflict, latent, explode suddenly.
The suspicions between the East Yáwohhiur (the Pjyuyuians) and the Yáwohhiur of the West (encompassing the Yáwohhiur of the rest of the kingdoms) had very deep roots (different cultures, different customs, even different deities).
The severe difficulties present at the time and the arrogant attitude of the Yáwohhiur of Pjyuyu made numerous stories begin to circulate; As for example that the Pjyuyuianos had signed a secret agreement with the Elves to avoid an attack. Also, the mystical conception of religion that the Pjyuyans had did not help.
This group of nobles took the stories that were murmured in the villages and increased them, pouring out very serious accusations against the Yáwohhiur Pajyuyans; like, for example, that they worshiped the gods of the Elves of the Glowing Blood, burying food for them (this is how the elves worship the God of the Earth, Nhuitui).
This accusation, totally false, was accepted by the villagers because they knew the habit that had the Yáwohhiur of Pjyuyu to bury their food, although they did not know that they were buried in sealed containers, the opposite of what the Elves of the Glowing Blood did, because they buried the food to rot and serve as food for Nhuitui.
This grave accusation made the mob uncontrollable and, taking a large number of torches, went to the fence to burn it.
The enormous smoke that arose then caused important events: there were some villagers who died intoxicated by the smoke and also alarmed the armies of both Pjyuyu and the Yáwohhiuric kingdoms of Mgauki and Ylweuejh.
When the armies of the Western Kingdoms arrived and saw the scene immediately they thought that it was a large-scale attack: black clouds covered the sky and there were numerous bodies on the ground, some suffocated and others with convulsions.
The nobles, who were quickly overtaken by both the fury of the villagers and the violent flames of the fence, accused the Pjyuyuians before the Armies of the Western Realms of attempting to poison the villagers by burning the fence for themselves and this way avoiding the advance of the enraged horde.
The Army, which had come from several intense days (with the attempt to renew the agreements between the Blemmyae, High Elves and Yuyh'nü) had found along the way fragments of the Plague and had suffered much to eradicate it, so they could not see the lies of the nobles.
Before what they considered a provocation too serious to ignore, they summoned the rest of generals of the western kingdoms and declared the war to Pjyuyu.
The allied forces of Elves, Blemmyae and Yuyh'nü decided to retire, and not to participate in a conflict that considered internal.
The West Yáwohhiur felt betrayed and broke the pact they had with the Alliance, refusing to reveal once the conflict concluded the Yáwohhiuric secret.
The Yáwohhiuric Civil War and the Second Bloodelvish War
These were the concrete causes that led to the emergence of this brief but intense civil war (which lasted no more than two years). The long-term consequences in material terms were not too great, although the lack of food in all the Yáwohhiuric realms had intensified and hatred for Pjyuyu increased dramatically, blaming them all for the conflict.
In more abstract terms, the Yáwohhiuric civil war delayed the discovery of the Yáwohhiur's secret to other species and also worsened their relations. It even led to a much more serious setback than the Plague because of the destruction of facilities that had resisted it, and even archives and fundamental information on the location of the place where all the technological and yáwohhiuric knowledge was kept.
The insecurity of the Yáwohhiuric kingdoms further frightened merchants and changed trade routes almost permanently.
The Elves of the Glowing Blood carefully followed all this process and revived the Plague, accompanying it with a massive terrestrial invasion.
Plague of the Glowing Blood forming impenetrable walls, in the Second Bloodelvish War by Jakeukalane
The advancement of the Elves of the Glowing Blood (aided this time by Trolls of Blood, Green Orcs of the Hills and other beings) was relentless, attacking all the Western kingdoms and Pjyuyu. They also counted on the impenetrable hearts that the rests of the Plague of the Glowing Blood had left on the roads and where they had been annihilated.
In Vaelamieelu, the capital of all the Yáwohhiuric states, the decision was made to try to stop the advance of the Elves of the Glowing Blood, whichever solution and the price to pay.
Working groups and researchers from the subworlds gathered in secret places (factory plants specialized in the study of the subworlds) to try to contact other scholars (who had been exiled by the Plague) or researchers who had gone to their own subworld. As the Elves of the Glowing Blood approached Vaelamieelu and destroyed and killed everything in their wake, this task was more and more desperate, since they could not get in touch with any important theorist nor had sufficient technological means.
After six months, and with the capitals of five of the Yáwohhiuric countries already fallen, this group of researchers found by chance an access to the subworlds where the knowledge acquired from the subworlds was kept. The site of this place had fallen into oblivion due to the civil war.
With this immense arsenal of knowledge they developed a new method to track the subworlds and tried to access Odranærya to get in touch with Odranæ. They wanted to be able not only to observe or enter into subworlds or to create them but also to extract any object or being from these subworlds.
If they achieve that, they would have a good chance to win to the Elves of the Glowing Blood.
In just ten months, the Elves of the Glowing Blood were able to besiege Vaelamieelu, having literally devastated the rest of the Yáwohhiur kingdoms. The Sa'dveriedle no longer wanted to simply finish the Yáwohhiur technology or find out the secret, but wanted to annihilate all the Yáwohhiur in reprisal for the massacres of Elves of Glowing Blood in the First Bloodelvish War.
After besieging Vaelamieelu for half a month managed to break down the gates of the wall and entered the city.
However, at the very gates of the wall awaited an enormous detachment of enormous Neldra, with their obsidian axes ready to annihilate the Sa'dveriedle.
Once the elven armies were overthrown, the Neldra built magnificent mansions for their stay in Qhot-naun-phaqiasiari and helped to rebuild the Yáwohhiuric states.
The rediscovery of the subworlds
In the midst of the conflagration of the Second Bloodelvish War, agents of the Second Council, formed by the species that refused to dissolve the Council: Elves of Fire Blood, Warrior Mawi Elves and Silvan Elves (Anxi'ellehë), penetrated the Yáwohhiuric lands determined to know the secret that had caused so many things.
These agents not only discovered the secret of the subworld but helped develop the way to extract objects or beings from the subworlds.
After the Yáwohhiuric countries were rebuilt, the Yáwohhiur timidly attempted to establish central control of the subworlds, but the rest of the species did not accept it.
The name of the planet, Qhot-naun-phaqiasiari, meaning "the world of countless wonders" took from now then a new meaning.
With all speacies knowing how to use the subworlds, the History of Qhot-naun-phaqiasiari here becomes very diffuse, because the events happened both directly in Qhot as in its subworlds.
After a hundred years, for example, it was very difficult to establish the family affiliation of any being of any kind, since it could have come from a subworld or its ancestors to have been born in one.
From then on a new period in the history of the Planet Qhot-naun-phaqiasiari opened, a very fruitful period but that would end in tragedy.
*Note 1: The years of Qhot are different from the ones of Earth, its year is about 1,8 earth years, while its day it is arround 1,17 earth days.
*Note 2: The "Textures of the Essences" are a type of structures obtained through the transformation of Essences. These structures have a greater physical entity than the Essences themselves, so they are very useful for manipulating Essences in a physical way, without resorting to complicated energy fields or more difficult methods.
There are Textures of Essences that can directly transform Essences into other Essences, without requiring any external intervention. These Textures are very precious.
*Note 3: This phrase is placed inside a literary context and, frequently, it is not transferable to the real world. Nor can it justify pseudo-scientific rantings. Here the fundamental phrase is in "with many accumulated knowledge". If such knowledge are not valid, it is very likely that the development of the situation will lead to conclusions that are not valid too. I do not support pseudoscience in any way.
*Note 4: This word is somewhat misleading to describe this yáwohhiuric way of communication. In the first place, the Yáwohhiuric proto-writing was realized by the construction of intricate knots in three dimensions. These knots were greatly simplified to become cylinders of different shapes, colors and textures. The instantaneous "newspapers" of the Yáwohhiur are composed of cylindrical vessels of transparent ceramic that have in their interior diverse levels full of geometric forms of different colors and in movement. Each "news" uses the three levels of the vessel. Yáwohhiur are able to capture a great amount of meanings based on the different shapes, sizes, colors and distance between objects.
*Note 5: Despite the disproportionate reaction to the subworlds' access, the Yáwohhiur have no repressive governments (except for some brief intervals of military dictatorships in some of the Western kingdoms). Here, to make a Yáwohhiur disappear is not a euphemism of something more severe, but simply transferred from community.
*Note 6: The Elves of Fire Blood speak two languages. The Firian and the Bloodelvish. In bloodelvish, he is known as Ywrýlai.
*Note 7: Although the Elves of the Fire Blood Fire know them with the derogatory nickname of Ut'vraerbok'orko, that is to say, Orcs, the Elves of the Glowing Blood remain being Elves, despite their ungracious features.
*Note 8: For example, some devices were too robust, which suggests a stronger gravity in the place where they were designed and there were others whose design required a precise humidity and therefore did not work.
*Note 9: In fact, not all those who approached their territory were murdered: sometimes there was some Human or Elf of another strain that crossed and was unscathed. This is not to be attributed to special expertise on the part of the survivors, since they were watched at all times. The criterion of the Elves of the Glowing Blood is to do no harm to the one who comes to their forests and does not kill any animal or living thing and there is no evidence that it has done so in the past. This criterion is certainly very difficult to fulfill so that the lucky ones who are saved from death killed by the Elves are those beings who move through their forests at full speed and their clothes are not the obvious fruit of the death of any being (so only those with armor would be saved).
*Note 10: It has been proposed that the whole attitude of the Elves of the Glowing Blood is no more than a façade. The other alternative would imply that their moral criteria would follow some kind of twisted system in which knowledge and technique had to be balanced.
*Note 11: One of the peculiarities of the Plague of the Glowing Blood is that it is the work of a very complex work of nanobioengineering that makes tremble the façade of barbarians or technological backsliders that the Elves of the Glowing Blood had erected around themselves.
*Note 12: Plastic.
