About a millennium and a half after creation, God wanted to do a server wipe in the game world because the vast majority of humanity had become griefers. So a select few communities of elves and humans that still respected God were given plans for a great triple-decker boat, about the size of half a football field, carrying the local land animals. (This time, God stopped slightly earlier, while there were still a half-dozen or so God-fearing families, not one like in the Judeo-Christian account of real world events.) Under the guidance of a master carpenter over the course of several decades, the arks were complete.

Forty days of hurricane-force winds and rains flooded virtually all inhabited areas of land, but the people in the boats were safe. After a few months on the high seas, the water found its own level, and the boats washed up on dry land separated by thousands of kilometers. Plant seeds, preserved in the salt water, began to germinate once again. As each family left its ark, the people and animals spread to fill the immediate area. This obviously produced several population bottlenecks, leading to speciation as the genes of the separate populations drifted each in its own way, adapting to a lifestyle appropriate to the area. This even led to the emergence of several distinct races descended from humans.
