La terre promise
The first Age is focused on geography. Normally, the world map is almost blank when the game starts. The person who draws it up may throw in a river, a few mountains, or perhaps some islands, but it is best left mostly blank. During the first age, the cost in divine power is least for creating geographic features on the land. Mountains, islands, forests, lakes, and such are all very easy to achieve. This is reflected in the cost tables in section III. By contrast, the creation of races is extremely difficult at this early stage. Indeed it is the rare game where more than a single race appears in the world at this point. Each round in the first age is roughly equal to 500 years.
