After the Fall of Lady Death nothing on Haven has been the same. Creatures that die are given a second life full of hatred and hunger. These unliving creatures, known as Unfallen, gather in hordes to hunt those that still live, feeding on anything in their path. Armies rise up against the hordes in the name of the living, but many fall just to join their ranks.
How to tell the dead apart
The hordes of unliving creatures that now roam Haven are unlike any previously known. While the distinction between an undead and an Unfallen is barely noticeable to an untrained eye, the difference is very important.
When out of the direct control of their creators, the undead are mindless creatures of hunger. It is rare for an undead to leave its origin point, instead, they are found wandering a small area following any sounds they hear.
In large groups, Undead seem to be more restless but gain no additional benefits. The larger numbers make them harder to deal with but can lead them to bump into each other making it hard to travel quickly.
Unfallen seem to have a natural tendency to seek out other Unfallen and form groups. Because of this, finding a singular Unfallen is extremely uncommon.
The more Unfallen gathered in a spot the more dangerous they get. In large numbers, they seem to have a predatory intelligence about them that makes it difficult to escape. In the few times that their numbers have reached hundreds, specific Unfallen have gained a semblance of being sapient.
There has been no documentation of Unfallen dying from age.
The End of Wars
It has been over forty years since the last war. No one dares risk to create a new horde of battle-trained Unfallen. However, the foolishness of the living has not lead to a true end of violence as raids and skirmishes are still commonplace outside of the capitals.
Proper Corpse Disposal
As was discovered in the earliest years of the Unfallen plague, there is only one way to truly put the dead to rest: fire. Many contest and bicker over precisely why spirits do not raise from burned corpses but it holds no real importance. After death, there is a short window of time wherein the Unfallen spirit may be destroyed only during this time of transition, while it remains trapped in a mortal form.
