Over twenty years have passed since the ancient Ushani tablets were uncovered. Now translated, they reveal an epic tale that once became the pillar of a long-dead civilization.
Like many cultures, the Ushani had a creation story. At the beginning of all things, the deity Wen-Eba created everything. He manipulated the vast colors within himself to form the beasts of the air, land, and sea; all creatures were given the perfect amount of life color according to their needs. Even the trees were created with their colors to be sustained by the earth.
From the tallest trees, Wen-Eba sculpted the first humans, giving them part of his own spirit. He set them apart from all other creatures by not giving them color according to their needs. Rather, he wanted to give them life directly from himself, that mankind might be sustained by their creator.
Tragically, mankind soon rejected the will of their deity, seeking their missing color in the ground. From it, they pulled gemstones and precious metals, colors that were meant to sustain the earth. As their world slowly starved to death, their retribution began to awaken. Finally the greed of mankind unleashed a vengeful being known as Wenetra, "the flame that consumes all color."
Though mankind had been ravaged by Wenetra for many years, Wen-Eba did not forget them. A prophecy spoke of a hero who would someday rise to defeat the flame and restore all creation to newness and life.
This ancient myth chronicles the rise and fall of the Ushani people as well as their redemption at the hands of their legendary hero, Aedliss. Author: Wesley R Turner Language: EnglishBinding: PaperbackPages: 92Publisher: Christian Faith Publishing, IncPublication Date: 2022-04-12
