An account of the Serenria Schism
This was a great civil war which almost ended humanity. Almost 1000 years ago, humanity was united under the guiding light of Serenrei, and the population was quite a bit higher, containing two large cities, and several smaller towns along the river. At that time, all men and women were equals, and religion dictated that all people should strive to be their best. The next 2 centuries saw the extinction the last viable crops, as well as all river life. Food shortage and starvation became larger social issues, and with this, there was a rise in a new sect of Serenrei followers, who believed that for some to shine brilliantly, others must live in the dark. This was especially popular among the soldiery, as it was clear there was not enough food to keep everyone healthy, there was no way they could defend the people if they were malnourished, and there was no point in treating everyone as equals if it meant you’d just all be dead. A bloody, destructive revolution followed, and Old Serenria was left in tatters. The leader of the revolution knew they were in no position to defend themselves if the dragon people to the east chose to attack, so she took their army, marched southward down the river with the motto “join or die” and most chose join. Consolidated all her strength, renamed the city to Serenria, and began work on the citadel.
