The Things We Lost

We don't really know what things were like in the Pre-Dawn Days

It's for the best, though,  isn't it? They wanted to be gods, and they destroyed themselves. Better not to know. 

They say that the people of the Pre-Dawn Days could cure any disease by shining light on it. 

They say that the scorched and poisoned wastelands used to be their cities, so big it would  take a day to walk across, so high the clouds were caught between their houses. 

They say the people could fly, once. 

Mostly, though, they say that the people before the Dawn called down fire upon 
themselves.
