Triple Dragon Ante
The Killing Darkness
“Spellborn blackness hides the first of three;”
foretold misfortune brought on thee.
On those taken the creature feeds;
now their bodies servants be."
The Killing Darkness is a phenomenon unique to Thesk. It rules the night, a sphere of total blackness descending on bands of giants, farms, and caravants making off with livestock, horses, and even the giants themselves. Never are these seen again.
Diasan was contracted to drive out or destroy whatever it is, and do that means has discovered that the Darkness is a powerful Vampiric Dragon. The creature has skirmished with some of the party (Rraskinar, Diasan, and Oksana), but fled the battle, being out matched at the time. The creature has not since appeared, but it did reveal a name beyond the monicker the giants have given it. Kaesinthurkirkaegro, a draconic name meaning ‘The undying night of the forest’.
