The Pale Ones, Born of Darkness
|Available Base Classes|
Denounced as perversions and abominations by the Temple of the Cleansing Flame, strange beings known as Shades are feared throughout the lands of Men. Debate still rages over the true nature of these beings, who seem Human, yet are afflicted with a sinister taint that warps their bodies and poisons their souls. Often called the "Children of the Damned," Shades are born to Human parents, normal but for their bizarre appearance. A Shade's skin is ashen grey and cold to the touch, and their pupil-less eyes are as black as coals. No one knows why Shades walk among us, but the cause is finally becoming clear - when a Human father dies while his child is yet unborn, there is a chance - but not a certain one - that the child will be born a Shade. There are no accounts of such births before the Turning. The pallid visage and detached demeanor of the Shades has given rise to countless rumors and stories that link them to the Undead, and few of any race have grown to trust the Pale Ones.
