Once, the gods of the earth dwelled upon its surface, they danced upon its mountains and swam in its rivers. Though they made earth their dominion, they did not suffer the arrival of man and would not allow this new beast to look upon them. As men spread across the plains, the godswere driven first into the hills. As men scaled their slopes, the gods moved into the forest until, intime, even those were abandoned.
