Man was created when light entered the world. Man, subject to time and space, was illuminated by the light.... with light came form… and with form came shadow. Evil stirred, birthing darkness that grew to cover the sun... expelling the light. Through the years, many have given in to the darkness... choosing to serve the night at the cost of their mortal souls. Darker than the void, these people become spirits and creatures known as nightshadows. They are able to tap into dark magic, have superior nightvision and are tasked with searching for any last lights in the world to extinguish.
There are many different types of nightshadows but all serve the singularity, a being from which no light escapes… the great evil in the land of ceaseless night. It exists outside of time, and is seated in the heart of the wasteland in the cave of shadows.
