The history of Light and Shadow will be written in blood!
It was a time of Legends. The world, cast in shadow and darkness, beasts, evil men roamed the countryside laying waste to those that stood in their way, and people cowered in fear in their walled cities. They answered only to an entity called the Shadow King. Hope had all but been lost when a group of brave adventures rose up against the Shadow King and his minions. After battling their way through his minions, they were able to bring down the evil Shadow King. With his dying bring breath he cursed the heroes and warned of his return.
There was much rejoicing as light was again started to spread across the land in the months that followed the fall of the Shadow King, the heroes went their separate ways some founding new kingdoms and others in pursuit of knowledge, wisdom, and power continued to wander the land doing good and righting wrongs.
In the centuries that passed knowledge of the Shadow king passed from truth to legend to myth and then it was forgotten by all but the wisest of sages and the few beasts and beings of evil that far-reaching memories.
