EMBRACE THE DARKNESS
Gold ENnie Winner 2022
Our Bestiary won the highest honor in the world of RPGs, at Gencon 2022.
Nightfell is a Horror Fantasy setting.
A grimdark world under the influence of the Moon.
This setting will dive you into a dark world full of terror and despair.
The Undeads come back from the afterlife, and eternal beings crave the nullification of reality. You will face ancient horrors, but you will also come to know superstition and occultism, and you will learn to follow the Moon as the only guide in this nocturnal world.
In this ruthless setting, players will play night explorers, resilient survivors who adapted to the Lunar Age, an era where the sun is dead, and life still endures only thanks to the last Primordial beings.
“Thou wilt tip the balance since, on thy conduct, fate lies for what is left of us all. Be steady in front of darkness, do not let thy heart cede, and may the Moon lead thee through the silent lands of the continent.”
THE WORLD OF IÙRMEN
Nightfell takes place in the Known Lands of Iùrmen, during the dark times known as The Lunar Age.
The World you are going to face is cold and desolate. There are few inhabited settlements, and most races are now extinct.
Nights are gloomy, but days show no sun nor Moon and are even more terrifying. Life in these lands persists only thanks to the faint breath of life left to the Primes, deities who are intrinsic to nature and still stand uncorrupted by the dark beings who have breached the Material Plane.
The prophecy of the Fourth Truth is now fulfilled, and the dark dimension of Ènferun now corrupts the World. Adventurers in the World of Iùrmen are usually those embracing the power of darkness to use it against the creatures of the night, or rising as a source of faith and hope for survivors. They will face a hostile environment and try not to let themselves be overwhelmed by entities that will try to enslave their spirit. Eventually, they will have to find a way to counter the destruction of reality.
The Moon, called Mirithlen, is a goddess who bestowed her radiance on the pale satellite, lighting the nights up without any aid from the sun (the fallen god, Hollon). You will learn to fear and respect her since she will influence many aspects of your journey.
