12.14.2 Blighted Hollow
In the year 460 AD, a terrible blight was unleashed upon the world by the goddess of plague and ruin, Anathema. As the blight spread, it leeched all life from its surroundings, killing the flora and bringing about much sickness to those that breathed its overwhelming foulness. As time progressed, the mortals of the world thought they had cured the blight, banishing it completely from the realm. They were wrong. One small area near the Dardanic Grasslands was left untreated, and though the blight was contained to an incredibly tiny region of the surface, it slowly seeped into the ground, contaminating all life as it continued its subterranean progression. The bugs, worms and insects that subsisted on the roots and substance of the earth itself began to change. In a short span of time, some evolved into much larger instances of themselves, while others mutated into other creatures entirely, thriving on the unpredictable nature of the blight. Even now, the blight continues to spread its slowly leeching sickness just below the surface, expanding and mutating all flora and fauna in its wake.
