“In ancient times, when the first cities made of sun-dried brick rose in fertile lands that today are little more than deserts, the Ba’al rose to power. There were powerful sorcerers, the first among the early shamans to carve their knowledge in stone tablets, the better to preserve it. But their incantations, which helped bring rain over much-needed crops and healed the sick, were not enough for them. They grew hungry for more power, as is often the way of man. Their craving for knowledge led them to perdition.”
- Excerpt from The Wanderer Diaries (and Palladium books).
The Nightlords have been called monsters, sorcerers, and even gods but whatever their true nature is what is certain is that they are the driving force behind Dark Day and the primary antagonists working against the interests of the players. Up to recently the Nightlords have been just a name, the boogiemen (and women) behind the curtain but the group’s recent meeting with the renegade Nightlord Lord Foulseed has given them their first window into the inner workings of the Nightlords.
