The Reign of Darkness
When Elder Evils stir, the world groans; when they awaken, the world weeps. Buried in the deepest bowels of the earth, hidden in the farthest reaches beyond the stars, or lost in the void between realities are terrible things that exist only to destroy or horribly remake creation. So mighty are these ancient beings that even the gods tremble at the prospect of facing them. Many mortals who are aware of their existence viciously suppress that knowledge and destroy any who would serve such things but most are driven mad by their brush with that which man was never meant to know.
