and listen carefully my son, for today I will reveal the family's
heritage, both its blessing and its curse. Long ago, when the universe
was young, there was a crisis which could have destroyed the universe
before it was truly begun. You see, time happened randomly, it would
jump ahead eons,
then stop, there was no regular flow as we see it now. Our ancestors
recognized this problem and took it upon themselves to solve the problem
regulate time. Using all their powers, both mental, physical and
spiritual, they took control of the rampaging time and controlled it,
they provided a
direction and speed to time, creating what we see today. Suddenly
entropy only increased, broken cups didn't spontaneously mend
themselves, and the dead stopped rising from their graves. All the races
of the universe united in declaring it good and seven years of rejoicing
This my son is your heritage.

job with long hours and low pay, on the plus side, you will control the
universe and all the other forces will answer to and obey you.

birds from jumping back into their eggs, the water from flowing up
and the mobs from jumping back from their graves, although on this last
he always had difficulty.
