The Scourge of the Black Fire
The Scourge of Monsters
No one truly knows where the scourge of monsters came from, all that people know is their are thousands of them. all matter of mindless creatures begin to wander aimlessly during the night. the monsters can smell most humanoid type flesh and constantly crave for it.
at first the monster scourge did nothing more then make travailing traders think twice before camping somewhere for the night but after about 4 weeks the monsters numbers began to grow considerably, in 2 months time any city without a wall had been overrun and destroyed and trade between the surviving towns was completely cut off.
when night falls across the land, they appear from the depths and nowhere is safe. in towns, guards will reinforce the gates, busy city streets will be evacuated, sewers will be flooded and house doors will be closed shut. when the silence of night arrives, every city joins it.
