Age of Darkness
The Darkness is the name given to the danger that spread across the lands of Sarsis over 300 years ago. It was responsible for the mass migration of many of Sarsis’ races to the city, and the safety to be had within its walls. Exactly what these various races were running from however is unclear today, apparently lost to history. All that is known by those living today is that the world outside the city walls is one of great danger, and the farther one travels from civilization the greater the danger. It is from this great danger that stories of legend have grown throughout the many passing years.
