Shining in the Dark
Humanity was shattered by warfare and countries that once were, were no more. Millions of people were displaced by chemical, radiological, and massive destruction. Many years passed as humanity started to collect itself in small pockets of civilization. At first, villages had but a few families, but as time marched on they grew into small towns and soon into larger settlements. It was during this period of rebuilding that a being known as Ash’Kayn presented himself to humanity. He did not come as a friend, but as a conqueror.
Ash’Kayn, Vampire Lord and herald of the new age had finally come out of hiding to reap the world of it’s harvest. With him came an army of undead servants that were twisted and bent to his will alone. They swept across the land and consumed, pillaged, destroyed, and pushed humanity right back down into dust. The humans were collected and used as food, servants, and conscripts into his growing kingdom. All hope of freedom was crushed in a matter of weeks as the Lord Ash’Kayn claimed his place a top the new world as it’s sole ruler.
