Shards of the Void
This document stands as a living repository on our findings. Do not take it all as truth, and be wary of what could have changed.
In the time before Terra Arcana, the gods waged war using weapons of incredible strength. Most saw fit to create armies of servants, bestow their guidance upon their faithful, or twist mortals into living bearers of their will.It is said that one chose to do otherwise. He reached beyond the planes, unto the Void, and took upon Himself fragments of what had once been. Fragments that should rightfully be nothing. Fragments that sought to become something once again, through the annihilation of all else. To them, He fed the brightest of light, the purest of fuels: Life. In the times since, He has fallen into nothingness - likely a victim of a Purge, or one of the many fallen deities who saw fit to capitalise on the Worldrend, or another mysterious divine war. The shards, in His absence, grew quiet. We know little of them, save that they seek new beings to serve their purpose, each drawing on a single aspect of Life to spread their fell agenda. Thus far, in recorded scripture, we have record of eight possible Shards. It is not known whether each is a genuine Shard, nor have the forces of Light ever been able to accurately find and study one. As such, the following information is largely speculation. New research, thanks to the exploits of the Lost Ones, their fellow Champions, and the generosity of Emperor Aneirin 'Cyne' of Aletheia, has provided more information on each Shard - to maintain the integrity of this document, these expanded details are largely filed in their own reports. The claim that the Shards are fully intelligent and relate more significantly to the events of the Arcane War is still being investigated, and this document may not be current with known information.
