An Ocean of Anxiett
The Ender was thought to be a myth until 20 years ago when it was used for the second time in the history of Maelstrom. Build long ago by a band of arrogant wizards who sought to control the gods, the Ender compresses magical energy into such a dense form that when enough is gathered, the contraption can fire a burst of magic that can wound the gods.
The Ender was first fired against the goddess of the sea, slaying her outright. As a result of this, Torriander sealed much of the magic in the world into the five Seals of Magic and then wrote the books of the high magi to ensure that the most potent magics would be restricted, but not lost. The Ender fired again 20 years ago thanks to the power of the All-Slayer, and it was used to prevent the resurrection of the greatest demon even to stalk the material plane, the Hounter dis Primax, or The Hunter of Firsts: a insanely powerful entity created by Kos in order to destroy all remaining Deathless in the material plane.
