A Light in the Dark
The Blight is a shadow that has fallen upon the lands surrounding Longwatch.
What is known
The lands on the edges of the Blight are fairly ordinary at first glance. The grass is green, the trees are tall and the animals play the games of hunter and prey just like anywhere else. However, eventually a dark foreboding takes starts to seep into a person’s psyche.
You begin to notice things that are subtley wrong about your surroundings. The grass is green, but it is the wrong color of green. The trees are tall, but more gnarly and twisted. The animals hunt, but you feel every death, almost as if in your bones.
Those who have ventured farther into the landscape say that it is more of the same, but more discomfitting the farther they went into the Blight.
