The Badlands, the Wastes; huge scars carved deep into the Earth, contrasting sharply with the more verdant areas of the Servos Jungle and the seductive, yet deadly beauty of Blood Wood. These are the legacies of the Scourge, the great plague of creatures from the netherworlds who ravaged our land, killing and destroying for pure enjoyment. Horrors we called them, not yet understanding how truly horrible they were, an understanding that we did not gain until the Scourge was nearly over, and we emerged to a world utterly changed.
Even now, the Horrors influence still remains. In addition to the great wastes corrupted by the Horrors' touch, monstrous beasts roam the land, twisted and made savage by the touch of these evil beings. Some of the Horrors still remain, as well, inhabiting still the ruins of kaers they destroyed, or wandering the vast expanses of astral space.
