I've put this plot off for long enough. The haze has permeated throughout the realms without anyone bothering to investigate.
I'll begin the final part of this long-running plot. The effects will be global, and you may join or not participate. Nevertheless, you won't be free from the consequences.
What does it entail?
The defiled and those beneath the earth will rise. The subtle effects have been going on for six OOC months and will soon materialize in more visible marks. Not a single facet will remain unmarred. You, the player, will have two ways of involving your characters if you wish.
The first is the activation of the crystals hinted at within the haze lore. These structures, once stirred, will push back the fog giving a region safety even during the night. After enough has awakened, the source or convergence will be made accessible, and the party or parties must purge it to end its influence over that region.
There is four total.
The skeletal highway
And the deadlands.
The alternative route is combating the global infection to stem the contagion. It will involve delving into aspects of the metaphysical and horror. And will culminate with many epiphanies about what happened during past events and how they affect the present. This route will deluge the characters with glimpses into the makeup of the macrocosm and will contain powerful implications. So it is a mixture of combat, horror, and mystery.
Who can participate?
Everyone. Regardless of your time of play or your character's abilities. The truth is combat isn't the only element. And support and those with skills will be necessary as much as the mage or warrior.
What is require of me?
To be active. There will be points to jump off the wagon if you should so elect to do so. Ghosting, however, will result in your OC's death. Because poofing amidst a critical juncture will make explaining survival from the defiled impossible.
What should happen if we fail?
The end of everything. Or everything as we know it. A world must have consequences. And choosing to do nothing or ignore it won't alter that threat's tangibility.
