The Firstborn are humans freed from centuries of slavery by the return of the One King. Their Knights have forged a new kingdom from the old and built the most brilliant of cities, Chronopia, on the ashes of the One King's ancient home. The One King is beyond life and death. Leading his people from the Eternal Palace in the heart of Chronopia, he has learned more of the secrets of time and existence than any other being alive. Following his execution, three decades after the Founding, his soul traveled to Hell, where he fought the Dark One and closed the soul-soaked gates of Hell. Returning to the mortal world with secrets of unimaginable power.
He taught those closest to him, creating the cult of the Chronomancers. These sorcerers played a significant part in his victory over the Triad. Their ability to channel the very energy of time and reality has decided many a battle. Seven Eternal Towers have been constructed across the land, each in one of the Seven Kingdoms of the Firstborn. The towers provide a place for the mages to practice and refine their art, as well as aiding the princes appointed to rule the provinces in the name of the king.
