Welcome to Aether Unleashed

A place of blackness, shade, bitterness and hatred, the Dark Lands were abandoned for many long ages before the current inhabitants arrived.

A home-brew setting, first created by Vael, Aether Unleashed is the progression of her work. This campaign setting however will focus on very different concepts. Vael’s setting focused on the directly transformation effect of Aether, whereas Aether Unleashed takes a different view of the same society.

This is a society that has come to know Aether, a society that has shaped it, and been been shaped by it. For better or for worse. Many things have changed since the day Lord Proxus first found Active Aether, yet the effect it has had upon the people of the Dark Lands is… a matter of debate.

Races

The main race in the Dark Lands by far is humanity. They were the ones cast out from the Bowl of Creation, and they still outnumber any other group, Touched or Monster, a hundred times over.

However, the changes wrought by Aetheric Suffusion have only grown more dramatic with time. Of the Suffused, only Jarn Prozus has remained human, in form at least. The others have… shifted. Taken on new forms, new powers, new strengths… and their forms have been passed on to their descendants. The changes wrought by Aether breed true, it seems.

The Touched are not numerous, and to find one outside the hierarchy of their house is a rare event. But they have become far more common than they once were, at least in Crevice. The twelve known Touched ‘races’, as they’re now being called, are known throughout the Dark Lands, as their families have spread. They are all suitable for selection as player characters.
