Shooting Missiles at the Darkness.
The Blighted Wastes
Created 100 years ago in an unknown ritual by the Guild of the Holy Arcane. Succeeded in halting the advance of the Thousands and created a buffer zone dividing northern and southern Telsii. The ritual was originally referred to as both ‘The Great Sacrifice’ and ‘The Last Fury of The Ancients’, however in the last several decades as an increasing amount of information has come to light regarding the true nature and consequences of the event, it has become known simply as ‘The Blighting’.
A region several days march in length, the land is tinged brown, purple, and red and unable to support most life. Noxious clouds hover in the air above it, with a forboding gloom striking terror into the hearts of those who venture too near. Dark and shadowy monstrosities constantly gather on the border in greater and greater numbers, venturing forth every so often and terrorizing the southern villages. Adventures and expeditions into the blight have mostly resulted in disaster.
None of the Guild of the Holy Arcane are known to have survived the ritual.
