The magical explosion caused a chain reaction that made both the [[Watcher in Darkness]] and the [[Essence in Light]] vanish along with their eldritch minions, the [[Starspawn]] and the [[Dweller]]s. It also caused the [[Blood Fever]], a disease fatal to elves, to vanish overnight, and no elves have shown symptoms of it since.

The power of [[demon]]s mysteriously diminished and made them fully mortal with a lifespan akin to [[elves]], forcing them to adapt to their weakened state and learn to coexist with the other races.

The powers of both the [[Clergy of Cardia]] and the [[Clergy of Mardük]] greatly diminished, signalling a crisis of faith to any of the faithful who had believed in their gods' return. Some clerics joined other clergies or vanished, while the [[Church of the Golden Dawn]] rose from the ashes of the Clergy of Mardük after coming to terms with and joining forces with the [[Forgotten]] due to a revelation that removed the cloud from their minds although none can fully explain what caused this sudden change in them.

New, powerful and ferocious beasts of [[Shakkan]] appeared in the world since the release of the [[Hydra]] and began roaming the land, sea and skies. Their number included even many terrifying monsters from the [[Demon Realm]]. This effectively turned certain wildernesses in the world more dangerous to travel in than ever before as adventurers had to adapt to encounters with never before seen beasts with unknown, deadly abilities.

The [[undead]] known as the [[Wretched]] continued to expand their area of influence in former [[Remon]] before the kingdom's landmass fell apart and became known as the Plaguelands. Whether the undead survived the calamity or not is unknown, but what is known is that those still alive abandoned the Plaguelands on ships, leaving it to desolation.

In the brutal aftermath of it all, new kingdoms and autonomous city-states rose from the ashes of the fallen kingdoms. [[Libaterra]] became [[Andaria]], [[Celenia]], [[Goldshire]], [[Portiguara]], [[Tevinth]], [[Trinity Gask]], [[Valencia]], [[Zion]] and other small princedoms and city-states; the lands of [[Maar Sul (nation)|Maar Sul]] and [[Scundia]] survived but in a diminished state, and the fates of [[Aison]], [[Remon]] and [[Yamato]] remain unknown for now.
