It is said that once, the peoples of Altaride were living in peace and harmony, guided by the kindness of the Ancient Gods. They gave gifts that could allow everyone to do things that could seem unbelievable. The legends say this was a world of happiness and joy, but only misty memories remain from these times...
Times of darkness came, as a huge cataclysm shook Altaride to its depths. A gigantic army of demons fell from the sky, with the only purpose of destroying any life. Fountains of flames, eruptions of rocks and rains of lightning were tearing the world. The Ancient Gods struggled, but Altaride’s fate seemed doomed.
The Ancient Gods chose their last resort: they banished themselves from the world, thus making the demons disappear (how these two events are linked belongs to the mystery of the myth). Therefore, this last solution could allow a few survivors to live and rebuild a new era.
So ended this period of cruel disasters called The Apocalypse of Blood.
Altaride was in ashes, but the dark clouds that had invaded the sky faded away, letting the remaining survivors to new hopes for a new start.
Now the Ancient Gods are celebrated through a cult, whose first aspect is about thanking the Gods for this ultimate sacrifice, which could allow the building of the civilisation through the end of the Apocalypse of Blood. This is a duty to remember.

Aim of the contest

The Ancient Gods religion is organised through a pantheon which includes many divinities. The contest is about drawing these dieties. A given picture can illustrate one or several characters. Descriptions of these divinities are available at The Ancient Gods Pantheon page.

2006-01-13 [syagre]: [Kuruni], I'd also let you know that one of the points of the Contest would be to have other sights of these characters than our own "pre-conceived" ideas, so... the descriptions I've suggested are simply some basics for you, fellows artists, to let your inspiration wander around. Just let her as she is !
