This article details the various mythologies in the Light In The Darkness series.
Creation of The Otherealm
In the beginning, there were only Kosmeoth and Nihiloth, timeless and omnipotent beings who represented the Universe and the Void, and the balance between the two. In between these two ancients came the "birth" of the six Primal Incarnates;

In an attempt to subdue the enraged Creator, Kosmeoth attacked them.
