The Fade was a highly successful death cult that came to encompass whole planes in time. Possessing never before seen alchemy and devices that quickly overpowered any who would stand in their way they became extremely prolific and appeared to be almost unstoppable. This was until they reached the plane of Whryn where they first came in contact with the Chosen of the White Stag.
The Fade believed that all things must come into their true nature – death. Nothing can escape it, nothing can hold it back, the only way to conquer it is to embrace it entirely and choose death. It is unclear as to where The Fade came from but they are a terrible force that only seeks to destroy everything to be created in their image.
