On the expressions and idioms of the Illuminated Lands
We are a people much concerned with the Dark and the creatures that stalk it. We respect it, fear it, and hate it. Some of us become obsessed with it, driven mad by the power it has over us and the knowledge that we can do nothing to change it. It is no wonder that so many of our expressions and maxims are concerned with the Dark and the Light. In our world, Darkness is slavery, death, oblivion; the Light is hope, safety, and life. Just as the Dark presses in all around us, so too does it press itself against our minds and our souls.
