History wrote:
Originally, the Watchers existed. When time began, they created two opposite beings that balanced each other out: evil spirits of mischief that they placed in the Southern Heavens/Onitoshi and good, benevolent spirits that they placed in the Northern Heavens/Koutaku-shi. The barrier between these two realms was a material realm/Yochi.

Hogashas
, the strongest of each class, were cursed to guard the gates of each heaven and prevent intermixing of the classes, but they were blessed with the power of Matter. They'd be cyclically replaced after several eons.

The first two Hogashas (Epion and Henic of the Northern and Southern heavens respectively) fought on Yochi. To clean up, Epion invented rain, which brought plants into existence.
The second two Hogashas were challenged by Epion. To clean up after defeating the 2nd Hogasha of Koutaku-shi, Epion made it rain again, which brought beasts into existence.

The second Hogasha of Onitoshi (a female named Kayla) began the world's first romance when she seduced Epion. It resulted in the world's first tragedy when they abandoned their duties to run away together and live on Yochi. The Watchers disapproved and punished them.
They lost their immortality and became the ancestors of the human race.
The Watchers stopped interfering in their creation and disappeared from the realms.

The human race grew in number and spread out over Yochi, forming villages and sects. Gen Sai, who sired 100 offspring, created a vast settlement on the coast of the Endless Sea named Sai Village. This settlement grew into a city (Sai City). Yochi's history became lost and humans began to develop more and more advanced technology.

Meanwhile, a talented Hogasha named Dem was appointed over Onitoshi, but he abandoned his post after performing flawlessly for eons, allowing spirits to mix with life on Yochi. He attempted to gain the power of the Watchers by stealing the Book of Creation from Koutaku-shi. This resulted in all souls in existence being absorbed into the book and the destruction of both Heaven and Yochi.

The Watchers chose to renew life by reviving a fraction of those who had lost their souls, an event known as The Dawn.

Storyline wrote:
Nobody remembers anything before the Dawn, which was 20 years ago.
Yochi is now known as Terra Regnum. Its inhabitants are both spirits and humans.
There's a distant and broken entrance to Heaven among the clouds and is visible when the sky is clear.
There's many celestial bodies in the sky (e.g. spacedust, planets, stars, etc.).

There's relics from the past age all over the place (e.g. large ruins, mechanical objects, paved roads, etc. Think post-apocalyptic)
Nobody understands anything that was written in the language of the past age.

The world is very low-tech and wild.
There's no system of money, so people trade/barter.
There are endless opportunities for a new future
