Welcome to The Void

“The spirit of the earth is primordial. It has existed before all life, and it's soul will remain long after the last things die. When you wander, lay upon the dirt and moss. If you listen carefully you will hear its voice longing. It's tortured heart begging for you to return to the earth and the Void from whence you came.”

Four spirits walked the earth alone long after their bodies were laid to rest, searching for a way to convey their stories from the Void in which they existed. These spirits felt such hollowness until their paths crossed in the infinitesimal gloom of death. They began sharing their blood-stained gospels of discontentment. Together, they started their journey anew with the purpose of shepherding wayward spirits. They have become the voice of the earth, ushering the newly dead to their final resting places while circumventing the purgatory of the Void.

So long, they traversed this otherworldly sepulcher. Soon their numbers began to dwindle and the four were now three. Long they searched the desolate wastes to find spirits like themselves and nearly had given in to despair and joined the mad undead that plagued the wastes. After what seemed like an eternity trudging through the murk hark they found not one, but two dwelling within the mire. Just when all seemed lost they responded to the forests call. Now, the five continue to meander through the desolate void to help return to the forest from whence we came. spawning a cult of spirits who sought an end to the torment there.

One of the two that had been taken on had only just been awakened to the call of The Void, but the Leshen accepted him with open arms and offered for him to learn the ways of those who walk within The Void. After a years passing within the cold dark he was unable to tell the tales and help gather the other ghosts along the Roads of Deprivation. Though the decisions to let him go from the service of the storytellers was a hard one, he was dismissed from the enclave and another more seasoned voice would rise from the darkness to meet the Mourners and share the stories of the dead as they move ever forward along the desolate pathways to an unknown end.
