Welcome to Araea; a weird-fantasy world set mostly deep underground.
Life hides from malignant stars and irradiated wastes, deep in the dark. While cosmic evils haunt the surface and the endless deeps, life clings to existence where-ever it can take hold.
Atharkam is an Outer Shell region only accessible by an hazardous trek through the Surface. It is isolated from all known caves and tunnels, with no settlements yet established in this unknown darkness.
A disease and possession, the self dissolves and dark spirits fill the void.
