Ash is first produced underground in the caverns of the night by the PuffMerrs. Caverns, both natural and unnatural will serve as their homes as they begin to plant Ashroomius to live in and eat. Further below these creatures are the two dominate Under-Dark races, The Thrutians and The Zox. Both stir from their slumbers and awaken to begin digging out their underground kingdoms. However, as luck would have it, the two races dig into each other's caverns and the two races meet making this the first meeting of two races ever. They stare each other down, ready to kill each other.
Above ground, trees begin to grow and form into small forests dotted around the plateau. Grass spreads quickly and soon the entire continent is covered. In the center of the plateau, the first fruit baring trees are formed. They produce a spiky red ball which grows near the top of the tree. Inside however is a delicious liquid and meat. Under these trees is a lake filled with the first algae and fish that will feed the new race in the nearby cave.
In the South-Eastern part of the island, a race of horse are formed that feed from the White-Grass [which has spread quite well]. They are a kind race and breed well because of that.
In the North-Western Island, the Pigman discover clay but are much too busy eating each other to care.
In the Polar Wastes, the ice is melting causing water levels to raise and the Giants there learn how to create beer though they have nothing to make any out of. They also notice the small creatures swimming in the water and they attempt to catch/eat them but fail.
In the deep ocean, a race of merfolk are created that live in small hunting tribes. They gather Pom D'mers to live, eat, and prosper.
