Exalted, You Just Want Me Because Of My Essence...
These are dangerous places and situations that are known around and in The Villages of Strife.
- The Corrupt-many things come out of the Ruins, monsters and spirits of all types. The Corrupt however are something else. In the past it has begun with a curious happening. The villages begin to fall ill, darkness and sickness spreads, lethargy and rot overtaking the people like some sort of curse, and then the town simply disappears. Quite often nearby the villages that were known to disappear there is found a large entrance into the underground, black pits or chasms that swallow any light tossed among them. Often humanoid figures with black skin and empty or void filled eyes will be seen slinking out of those cold holes on the face of creation.
- Bleak Fields of Genesis-There is something peculiar that lives in the Ruins around the Villages of Strife. A happening, many believe a spirit. Where the land is most barren, most void of plants and animal life, there will suddenly be a rampant growth of all sorts of living creatures, fantastic things as unique as a blizzard of snowflakes…and then over a period of days all those entities new to creation wither and die, leaving nothing but ash and a feeling of wrongness about the area. Though there are rumors of this occurrence happening for decades, and there are indeed half a dozen known areas that have the “scars” of this birth and death…no one is sure what is causing it. 10 years ago a small village was unfortunate to be half overtake by this magical effect, and those who lived threw the experience speak quietly of a terrible creature in the middle of that brief jungle, and beasts with teeth and claws bringing all the flesh they could catch to the things bristly claws.
