City of a Thousand Towers
curtain of shadows
Known by many names, the curtain of shadows appeared 600 years ago and has been moving in fits and starts towards to the west. At present it is less than 100 miles from Tavia. Some in the city have fled for points west. Others seemed resigned to a terrible fate. Still others appear to try to placate the dark forces by secretly serving them.
If anyone really knows what is the cause of the curtain, they are not saying but there are many theories.
Some hardy adventurers and a few of the lucky who were overtaken by the curtain have escaped to tell stories of what it is like in the shadowlands.
