Creatures that Wander the Nights!
Hello Chosen Ones,
The Wildlands are a dangerous place! Only the cities truly are a haven for weary travelers, even if they also represent another sort of danger with their lot of cut-throats and thieves. However, the uncivilized lands are where the real danger is. From the deep forest of Tuulhe where wild predators roam in search of a new prey, to the dry deserts of Babel and its giant scorpions and venomous snakes, the adventurer should always be careful on their journey.
Doom awaits in the deep tombs and the forgotten temples of the first men. Only death or fortune can be found in those remote places. For the First Men were connected strongly with the gods, and some of them have been able to even cheat death itself. Now, they wait as eternal sentries, protecting sacred places or defending powerful Shards. Only a few have survived an encounter with those relentless warriors, but those few survivors were rich beyond every man's dream.
Magic is now rarer than ever, as the gods have left the land dry of their power. The few places where it's still present attract the attention of dangerous creatures. Malefic beings, corrupted beyond anything imaginable, are drawn to those place of power, like moth to a flame. Death would be an easy ending to those unfortunate enough to be found by such creatures. For they do not need to eat or drink to sustain their unholy life, as they feed on the life force drained from their victims.
Here is just a sample of what can lie in the Wildlands. So, Chosen Ones, be prepared to fight for your life in your quest for glory!
