Chronicles of Eorde
The Primordial Dark
The Primordial Dark is the anti-thesis of what is considered life and light on Eorde. It has no true form and resides in the Far Realm, waiting on the time when the hateful light of creation is extinguished and it can resume its mindless wandering.
Many monsters that blight the lands can trace their ancestry to the Dark. The most terrible were birthed by the Formless Night and still seek to do its bidding. The gods themselves could not destroy it, for where there is light, there must be dark. Its existence is counter, yet inextricably linked to that of life and light.
Still it strives to destroy that which brings it pain. Some scholars say were it to succeed, all reality would collapse and nothing would remain. Others say a new universe would form. And yet others hold even darker ideas on the outcome. None truly know, save perhaps for the Primordial Dark itself.
