The Danse Macabre
The Danse Macabre is a supernatural event that occurs at irregular intervals when all the evil magic of the world converges in one location, drawing the most wicked men and women to its side for some unknown evil purpose. Though few who witness the Danse live to speak of it, survivors have told stories of the horrors they saw. They speak of the air being filled with screaming spirits tormented by unseen devils, of frolicking skeletons bursting from their resting places as though their climbed their way out of Hell, and of the smell of brimstone so thick on the air that it chokes every living thing who breathes it. They speak of a blackest night, of a dark only dreamed of. They tell of a ghastly creeping green death, and of their nightmares made real. Worst of all, hey tell of normal men and women, good folk who were known to them all their lives, driven mad by the Danse and made to commit unspeakable acts of violence and hate. And strangest if all, some say they witnessed two ethereal hands dancing in the sky, darker than dark, conducting the slaughter as though it were set to some infernal music that only it could hear. If there is some being behind the Danse Macabre, no one knows who or what it is though many say it is the work of some demon king.
