Dark is the Night
The night is long and the years grow darker year by year. Many do not remember the time before the dead rose in numbers greater than the living, many do not remember the safety the age before this age brought. The dead slumber no more, the end times are no longer nigh they are here. The night is long, and the Gods are dead.
The Age of Nightfall was one that started suddenly, the darkness arrived with a great omen, that of a falling star. A great ball of fire raced across the sky, oracles and soothsayers all felt the impact of the crater. The energies of the falling star took root immediately. Necromancers were once outcasts, hermits and outlaws in many societies before the age of nightfall.
