The SPAWNING of BOB is a generation of Lizardmen Warriors created by the Old Ones.
They were spawned at the perfect time in history to teach us that neither might, nor skill alone will defeat the forces of disorder. Blind stupid luck is also required.
This is the wisdom of the Old Ones.

and energies which sets it apart from all others. The warmth of gentle sunshine upon a child's
face, the vigour of life and the tendency of objects to fall down, rather than
up, are manifestations of some of the many mundane laws which bind this
universe, making it "normal" to a native observer.
universes are governed by laws which seem paradoxical and bizarre to the
non-native observer. However, the
inhabitants of such dimensions find these as commonplace as gravity and time.
the space between the parallel planes is the Realm of Chaos. Because this non-dimension is populated by
entities made of energy, rather than matter, it obeys a set of different laws.

manifested as the Eight Winds of Magic.
the time of the Old Ones, this potential was measured and controllable. They taught their first servants, the
amphibian Slann Mage Priests, to channel and control the winds to perform great
works, which would have otherwise been impossible within the constraints of
this universe’s laws. In the eddies and
vortices of the winds, other energies, such as Dark Magic, gradually
accumulated like dust in the corner of a room.

they will endure until the last universe is snuffed out in cold infinity.
Metalaws have names, like Virtue and Evil, Good and Bad, Luck and Destiny. Many others exist, but all follow this rule –
