Gods & Rivers

There sits a village perched between two hills. Here flows a river so pristine people would sing eulogies in its name. Some hundred families populate either side of this mighty river which they say directly descends from the heavens as a gift for their virtuous deeds in the previous life. The village on either side ends into an impregnable forest thus, effectively severing all contacts with the world that lay beyond.
In the local mythology, humanity was a group of two complaisant tribes living in harmony in the land of Gods. It was the unrelenting wrath of the Gods on one man’s folly that would banish entire humanity on Earth. Humanity was then doomed to wander on Earth until they could identify the group to which this debauch did belong to.
