The Supernal Age is the first Age of the calendar used by the Agnarin. It spans the entire period prior to the creation of the current world, during which the Agnar existed as powerful entities in unknowable time and space. During this Age, countless worlds were born, grew old, and died; a process guided by the brothers Jondar and Hissopher and their respective tribes.
During this time, it is believed that thousands of other gods existed, perhaps an entire race counting into the millions. Some were bound to their world, and died with it, while others were part of the process itself or outside of it and therefore continued their lives and duties as worlds came and went. While there is recognition of the existence of these gods, usually on a localized level, there is little or no agreement on what they should be called or even if they are invested in mankind at all.
At some point prior to the formation of the current world, Hissopher grew impatient and unleashed his full destructive ability, consuming worlds before their time and disrupting the cycle of eternity. This was seen as an act of betrayal toward Jondar and his tribe, and sparked a war across the heavens between the two that was only partially settled when Ogden and Prin, who played no role in the previous events, produced the current world and bound the warring tribes to it. It is also believed that a large number of now-unknown gods died in the process of this war, but there's no record of who or how many. This is represented now by a Shrine to the Lost, a recurring item in Agnarin practice that honors the dead gods and often finds use in rites related to death - not to be confused with rites practiced as part of the honor of Nundala, the mistress of the dead.
The Supernal Age is followed by the Age of Harmony.
