Long ago, Scion King Goritsi hunted ancient monsters, but when treachery brought him low, he bargained away his humanity and embraced them. Now those blessed by his blood creep among the shadows, and they shall teach the world to fear the night.
Some evil endures. Before even the elemental lords ruled Arikania, terrible creatures drew upon the power of the land itself to terrorize and dominate mortals. Scion King Goritsi though he had destroyed the last of the, but when he discovered he had not, the embittered and crippled Scion bargained away his humanity for power.
His nation of Telloria fractured into petty, contesting states – ruled by Goritsi’s blooded descendants – that maintained a delicate balance between appeasing and manipulating the evils in the shadows to gain power or simply survive another day. Long considered a superstitious backwater, Telloria has nevertheless developed magic and technologies unique in Arikania.
Now, centuries-long machinations are finally coming to fruition, and Telloria’s septs have begun mobilizing their warriors. War is coming to Arikania such as it has never seen. The night will run red, and the shadows shall feed.
