The Age of Decadence
The Sundering Echoes
It is said that on day one of Dominicam Sutar (D.S.) calendar there was a major cataclysm called The Sundering which was followed by a series of smaller disturbances in reality called the Sundering Echoes that still persist to this day. All of the cultures of Terratus believe differing reasons as to why these events happened and in these dark ages entire religions have been based around it. No record exists of the true day of the Sundering but what is known is that the Echoes have trapped incalculable unnatural monstrosities in our dimension. The phenomenon of the Echoes has shaped the very psyche of the world today. For the average man, woman and child, it is a frightening reminder of just how fragile the separation between Terratus and what can only be Hell truly is. To the people of the world the Echoes are not a physical curtain, nor a structure limited to a particular place—it has spread the creatures of nightmares everywhere. It is in their homes, in the streets they walk, in farmers' fields as well as remote mountain vales. At any moment it could cause reality to be torn to shreds, allowing malignant brutes and other abominations to flood into the world like corrupted blood through burst capillaries.
"And then where there was war, there was instead endless fire, screams, monsters and oblivion followed by…nothingness. This was known as the Sundering." – Unknown Author.
