The Constellations of Netheos

When the world was first created, fifty constellations shone in the sky: one for each of the fifty Primordials who had come from afar to craft the world. But after the great war, the sky was riven in two: twenty-five Primordials found a place (whether in thrones or in chains) in the new order of things, and their constellations hung yet in the sky -- while twenty-five others fell to death or exile, and theirs slipped away from Meru and fell -- into the skies of Netheos.
