The Dawn of the 2nd-Age saw a whole host of new soma emerge from the primordial-ether and rifts of Nu-Sumar following the loss of Priest-13's physical-body and the spawns of the Poison-Seal that he'd lost his body to, while protecting the realm He'd built up from the nothingness that was Daeulda.
The Irony that it was once again Whore Demons from Underworld-Realm of HELL was not lost on any of the survivors of the End of the 1st-Age and the loss of Their Creator, at least, in a physical-sense.
However for those who lived in the Far-Deang of Nu-Sumar...?
They found themselves under attack from the newly-spawned MAO.
This 2nd-Age Primordial Species was first thought to be nothing more than a spherical-biotech lifeform that was extremely aggressive and utterly territorial whenever they encountered Non-MAO. Refusing any and all forms of communication and always responding in flashing fits of light emanating from their spherical-forms.
Or variable patterns of light with pulses that nobody could make heads nor tails of!?
Until they attacked without or with provocation, but it was usually WITHOUT!
It didn't take long for word to spread to steer clear of these spherical tyrants and thus their original nickname of Sphere-Tyrants, was born!
And Sphere-Tyrants they were!!!!!!
Appearing without warning due to the Fact that They easily generated Their Own gravity-fields and could quietly and quickly drop down from the sky without warning or race across short-distances as if teleporting due to the Fact that they were spheres and not confined to humanoid-bodies!
For centuries these foul-tempered and highly-hostile flying-fucks!?
Raided and murdered without warning, without rhyme or reason and whenever faced with strong enough opposition they raced away just as abruptly as their unwanted arrivals had shocked those they surprised!!!!!
As the 1st-Millenium of the 2nd-Age came to a close more and more rumors had circulated from survivors of their ambush-attacks!
That the Sphere-Tyrants were in Fact still evolving and that some of them had actually transformed mid-battle into humanoid-forms and continued their crazed-attacks!!!!!!
And once it became clear that they could not win, just like their Sphere-Tyrant kin?
These Humanoid Sphere-Tyrants still had the disturbing ability to abruptly flee from the battlefield at speeds that were unheard of and unseen!!!!!!
Reality finally set in that the MAO had actually been weakening any and all that they KNEW could oppose them from their real objective...!
Which was the creation OF THEIR OWN NATION.
Where their seemingly random raids finally came to fruition as the culmination of Them attacking groups and regions that were nations and empires in the 1st-Age.
But fell apart as the war against the Whore Demons of the 91st-Planes drew more and more of Them off to the other side of Nu-Sumar where Priest-13 needed Them so He could halt the Whore Demon invasion!
The MAO had somehow gained information OF HOW EVERYONE AND EVERYTHING WAS DURING THE 1ST-AGE.
And USED THAT INFORMATION to attack specific people and places while the entire Far-Deang was still trying to recover from the dimension-wide war and its dimension-altering end...!
By the time anyone knew it, the MAO had successfully created their own homeland off of the backs and bodies of the central-most region of Far-Deang, which would be the capital-dessga of present-day Wayfarer!
With their own land and resources secured.
The entirety of the MAO finally began to evolve into their dual-forms of an Orb and a humanoid-form, thus cementing Their Name as Mang-Android-Orbs....
They then would spend the next 3000-years carving out the MAO-Empire.
And as They overran THE ENTIRE FAR-DEANG CONTINENT.
They found themselves unable to expand beyond Far-Deang and thus began the inviting between Them that would lead to the first off-shot from the UmoraMAO.
Good Evening from Philadelphia....
After the cataclysmic conclusion of the war between Nu-Sumar and the 91st Plane of Underworld-HELL. The 1st-Age of Nu-Sumar came to its abrupt ending with the desperate attempt by the Whore Demons of the 91st-Plane attempting to use a doomsday-device that would have destroyed the entire dimension as They were fleeing back to Their Own in defeat and disgrace!
However Their Doomsday-Weapon was thwarted by Priest-13 himself! Leading to a fatal final confrontation between the withdrawing Whore Demon invaders and Priest-13!
Where Priest-13 would end up having to sacrifice his own PHYSICAL-BODY TO STOP THE DOOMSDAY-DEVICE!!!!!
This event is what directly created the Poison Seal of Arcane-Energy that swept across the entire dimension infecting and infesting various sections of Nu-Sumar!
And while Priest-13 AND HIS ARMY DID DESTROY THE EMPRESS OF THE 91ST-PLANE AND HER REMAINING FORCES!?
He could only LESSON THE EXTENT that the Poison Seal damaged and disrupted Nu-Sumar!
The Rifts that exist throughout Nu-Sumar are A DIRECT RESULT of the Poison-Seal.
It is from these rifts and around them.
That new-types began to emerge.
One of those in the Far-Deang...?
Was the MAO.
Initially the MAO were one unified race of Orbs.
Living biotech-spheres of 6'-diameter.
That radiated arcane-energy and pulsed and glowed as they jetted about, usually forming firefly-like packs that would unleash chain-lightning like arcane-attacks that increased in power and severity the more MAO were present!!!!!
They would attack anyone.
Without rhyme, reason, or hesitation!!!!!
Killing or being killed with no care nor concern for Their Own survival and showing no signs of existing as nothing more than some sort of mindless biotech-machines meant to purge the region of any and all lifeforms except for themselves!
It would literally be a full-century of time before the very first groups of MAO's revealed that their sphere shapes were simply an alt-mode hiding their fully-humanoid, Mang-Android form!
Had simply been communicating STRICTLY AMONGST THEMSELVES as They began spawning and multiplying TO MASSIVE AMOUNTS and then joining up with other groups of MAO!
Till it became clear that they'd been ACTIVELY ELIMINATING SPECIFIC RACES AND PLACES BECAUSE THEY WERE A THREAT TO THEIR OVERALL GOAL.
Which was the total domination of the Far-Deang Region of Nu-Sumar. So that They could carry out Their Main Goal;
Total Unification of Nu-Sumar UNDERNEATH THEM AND THEM ALONE!!!!!
Are the STANDARD-MAO and WERE the Baseform FOR ALL MAO.
But as the centuries turned into millenia and Far-Deang new and old races and species became accustomed to the UmoraMAO?
It would have an unforeseen consequence where the UmoraMAO began FIGHTING INTERNALLY for INDIVIDUAL POWER, which at first seemed like a good thing.
This however would be nothing more then Their Expression of Their Mang-Heritage for EVOLUTION THROUGH CONFLICT...!
As the various regions of the MAO-Empire FRACTURED AND EVOLVED AND FOUGHT the UmoraMAO to become DISTINCTIVE RACES AND ETHNIC-GROUPS!!!!!
Leading to further danger for the Far-Deang denizens....
