Farline : The Eastern Gateways
“And amidst the fog a malevolent spirit resided, its ferocious energies bringing forth the darkest in the hearts of the living and the departed alike.”
~ Tales of The Eastern Gateway
Defiling Forces are horrid puffs of dark cloud that often intermingle with fog and other weather conditions, making them hard to spot. These horrific creations are usually generated by nearby necromancers or the collective anguish of lost souls with ties too strong to the material plane to be released from their place of death. One explanation of the persistent undead within The Dead Wastes is that the spirits of the fallen remain weeping in anguish, uniting to form defiling forces that continue to reanimate the skeletons of the fallen. This is rather troubling to The Chruch of Peros because it implies that unless something can be done about the defiling forces the churches raids into The Dead Wastes are pointless.
