Everything changes, given time. Lives filled by happiness and desperation fade into the background of centuries and aeons, worn smooth like a pebble in a brook. Armies and empires are ground away, baubles for the amusement of uncaring gods, and even the gods lose their meaning as the Realms dance to a rhythm entirely of their own making. Yet all history was once lived, and every moment births a new and furious struggle. From a distance, it all becomes meaningless, but here and now, nothing could be more important.
