The Grimdark

A series of tunnels and caverns below the surface of Jord that appears to connect all of the continents together. The full extent it travels is presently unknown, though at least one city, Undercity, has been built within it.

Little more than general facts are known about the Grimdark, but there are a few things that scholars tend to agree upon:

  • A massive influx of forces from the Darkgate occurred sometime in 73, and they now control the Grimdark surrounding Jatul’s Shadow and its Undercity. it is not known whether they have spread further.
  • Undead forces pervade the Grimdark under eastern Gurgaron. Bemek and Fort Marroth prevent them from overflowing into aboveground settlements, while the Halls of Stone do all they can to prevent the Halls from falling, yet again.
  • Ancient ruins from before known times have been discovered under Darklend. Bold explorers frequent them, but they are largely unexplored, and one is actively murderous to those entering it.
