The Shadows

Most of the cultures in the world have some variation on the same tale for children, and in all their variations one thing is always the same: there are lurkers that hide in shadows (literally).

Two-dimensional shadow people that hide from the eyes of mankind, reaching out to steal people making them vanish.

  • Some say they're the servants of Illyrie, seeking out secrets for the hooded god.
  • Others say they're sent by Hazar to steal the souls of those who hide from the light.
  • Still others say they're the work of Kielyr, the trickster, sent to confuse and confound.

All agree that they strike without remorse and those they take are never heard from again.
