The LEGENDS OF MÄLICE Campaign Setting ©
All fear, hate, and despair originate from the Darkness. Those with the weakest of mind often succumb to the temptations of the Darkness, often thinking they are bending it to their will but little do they know how far from the truth that is. Many of the multiverse’s problems originate with the Darkness, on its quest to quench its unsustainable thirst for fear and death. The Darkness is locked in a constant struggle to break free from the binds of the Lower Planes; while the majority of the Darkness’s power is contained within the Outer Planes, it inevitably seeps out from various “leaks” out into the Inner Planes and material universe. It is everywhere and nowhere all at once and its cold tendrils constantly fight against the Light in an attempt to extinguish it for eternity, putting the entire of existence in a cold blanket of darkness with no beacon of life or hope.
