RIP Ralph Baer
I really, really hate writing obits. I really do. But I take it as a personal honor to be able to say good things about the men and women I respect, whether in this industry or just in my life, and Ralph Baer is the reason all of this exists in the first...
In ancient times, in the realm of the Lords, a competition was held to prove who should be the ruler of said realm. The competition got out of hand, with one Lord creating the world of Nolem, and land far below the Realm of the Lords. When the Lord of Life created the first forms of life on Nolem as a display of power, the Lord of Creations created a more advanced life form that could control the elements. A war came about between two races of people; the Empirians and the Emilians, due to the Emilians ability to cast magic and control the elements; or the Empirians lack of. Due to the war becoming heated to the point that the world of Nolem was shattered, eventually the conflict stopped and the war was ended with no victor, and Nolem was discarded by the Lords as their 'largest mistake', and several items, said to be part of the Lords souls whom created Nolem, were left down in Nolem to keep the balance in place of the Lords themselves.
