The Forest: Be Afraid of the Dark!

War is upon us in the Dark Forest - a place of twilight caught between the worlds. The Forest has always been contested by three cursed peoples whose kingdoms touch its edges. Lords of the Nildreth, Syldrath and Lledreth now perch themselves on dark castles in the far marches of their territories that overlook the coveted forest and its mysteries. These sorcerer-queens and kings have always sourced their power from this dark land and now devise plans to take it all for themselves.

The three related people of the Forest were born in it and cursed by it. Their separate realms are kept in a perpetual and never changing station of day or night in this strange part of the Realm. In the marches of Darkness dwell the lofty and brooding Lledreth, people of the night. In the perpetual and maddening marches of Daylight dwell the crazed and grasping Nildreth, perhaps the people most akin to humankind found elsewhere in the Realm. Lastly in the marches of the Gloaming, a perpetual sundown realm between Day and Night, dwell the faery-like court of the Syldreth. By Wyrd of the Forest each of these peoples has been Cursed to Hunt and find themselves in a vampyric chase. The life essence of one people is intoxicating, empowering and sustaining to the other - without it they would fall into madness!

But there are other things to worry about in the Dark Forest more terrifying even than your opponents. Will you seek them out or will you attempt to avoid them as you play?

A Variety of Games

There will be little time for building in the Armory, instead we'll focus on several new games that integrate darkness into their system of rules. Some games will require cooperation between factions, some games will pit you against each other, all games will put you squarely in the Dark!
