The shadowlands are a dark, cold place, far from the influence of Dei. At the conclusion of the Dawn War, savage races such as orcs, goblinoids, and dragons were driven away into the shadowlands. As one travels away from the fringe of the Ecumenopolis, the air chills and Dei’s face slowly slips beyond the horizon. Further still, and the Voideyes can be seen staring down from the black sky, and an icy wind threatens to pull the very breath from your lungs. Those brave explorers who have gotten this far into the shadowlands tell tales of enormous mushrooms growing from the ground, and vicious tribes of monstrous humanoids who thirst for men’s blood. The most dangerous of the denizens of the shadowlands are the Dragons. The dragons once spread terror and suffering through civilized lands, but the Light of Dei drove them to the shadowlands along with the rest of the savages.
