A Shadow over Akeroth
The Great Deceit
The Great Deceit (or Deception) was the event in which Nerull created Man, for the sole purpose to destroy Akeroth through war. The Deceit was committed as Akeroth was protected from Nerull and the forces of The Abyss by the means of the Beacon of Light, the Aspects, and the Titans. Man was to start the chaos and guarantee its success, the destruction of Akeroth with the Dread Plague via The Undead Host.
The Deceit caused the Age of Man which would culminate in the 1st Apocalypse; the Deceit would not end until the Host rose up and migrated towards the Ebon Hold, at that moment all the peoples of Akeroth shrank back in horror, this caused the Humans to renounce their creator (Nerull) and accept Pellor (along with other Deities), the Lord of Light as their new god.
