The humans then further advance to the seas and islands of Kriaz, and after that to the blazing lands of Ludivour. Having made friendly connections with the species of each of these lands they soon started trading their technology for valuable minerals and items. The humans had hit a new pinnacle after they finished their travels. Simple machinery wouldn’t cut it anymore. They invented computers with complex algorithms, testing the boundaries of artificial intelligence. The old arrogance of the human race was surfacing once more. They felt they could accomplish anything with their science, and soon started researching the powers of the portals and Deities of old times. They first started imitating the power over life, by creating machines with the human thought processes. Yet, that wasn’t enough, the art of transferring the human brain into robots is where they found their success. With this, they had found their own unique solution to eternal life. They didn’t stop there, humans no longer wanted to depend on the demi-god or Zephyr for anything. So, with the help of scientists of different species, they researched the science behind portals. Unfortunately, this had resulted in a complete failure which had opened a portal to a different plane. Zephyr, who was now convinced that humans will never learn if left alone, chose to give the humans a small punishment as a reminder to not get drunk on their greed for power and knowledge. He made it so that portals will spawn all over the lands randomly which led to other astral planes. Challenges would await whoever entered them. But some say that the energy of SOL manifests a reward for the ones who clear them.
