The judgment of Corthain left man in the shell of mortal beings, and but for a few, they lived ever shorter lives.
Corthain’s judgment had a far greater affect than he ever intended. In his rage he unleashed the power that he would later infuse into rebuilding the Wall of Worlds, and he bound the Val Eahrakun from directly interacting with men or any of the peoples of Aihrde. Only through prayer and worship and very powerful incantations could the Val Eahrakun come to the world in any form, for the Judgment bound them to not interfere. The Og Aust suffered most of all.
Corthain broke the Wall of Worlds and returned to his fortress in the Void. From that day to this he was ever known as the Slayer of Gods.
So ended the first years of man.
