"That's regular! Why would there be a ton? Where would they all come from?"

"The same place you came from? Do you... er, not have animals? You said you had birds."

Permalink

"I mean we have animals but they aren't evolving into sapient species because that takes a long time and we were first."

Permalink

"Only one species becoming sapient seems unlikely. Perhaps you have less diversity than we do."

Permalink

"I mean something else might start but it takes a really long time."

Permalink

"How long?"

Permalink

"Millions of years."

Permalink

"Millions?" he sounds incredulous. 

Permalink

"Yeah? And like, that's starting from a pretty smart thing, not like a fish."

Permalink

"It didn't take that long for us."

"...how do you figure?"

Permalink

"The disc isn't that old."

Permalink

"How do you figure that? People usedta think the Earth was like, six thousand years old, but it's actually billions."

Permalink

"We... measured it?" he asks, sounding confused.

Permalink

"With... what?"

Permalink

"Magic?"

Permalink

"Like you had a diviner -"

Permalink

"A diviner?"

Permalink

"A kind of psion who can just answer things."

Permalink

"Similar to that, but any wizard can do it."

Permalink

"How old is your world then?"

Permalink

"It depends what you count as starting, but between seven hundred thousand years and nine hundred thousand."

Permalink

"Huh. How'd you get so many species so fast?"

Permalink

"Dwarves and trolls were created by Tak. Humans evolved I think, if that word is translating correctly. The original vampires were likely created by a magical curse, though the exact history is lost. The original werewolf was theorized to have been conceived in a highly magically charged area."
