The Darken

     In a wondrous yet violent world, there roam beings both fair and foul. Even now, in its dying days, magic is an ever-present thing, unpredictable and ever-changing. It churns and tangles into chaotic storms, from which many dark tales are born.

     One such tale speaks of a child, born with an aura as black as night. A dark, malevolent force, it devours all around it, unraveling the very fabric of the world. Most such children die within a week. Some survive for two. Only the unluckiest live to adulthood, becoming little more than physical shells for the dark power that sustains them.
     But a very few become something more. They adapt, taming the darkness within and learning to harness its power. In doing so, they become the stuff of legend. They become Darken.

Instagram post 18104943025053912 Here's a peek at a WIP model of a focal brace, a piece of worn technology that allows the wearer to manipulate the natural flow of energy💡. You'll see this particular brace on the arms of various Dalsmen throughout the Darken: Echoes of the End.
Who are the Dalsmen? Stay tuned, we'll be having a look at them and more in the days and weeks to come.
