Points of Light
Valley of Light
Durring the Empire of Nerath the men of Sparrow Down and the elves of the Valley of Light lived in peace and prosperity side by side. Goods, services and ideas flowed freely among the two wealthy peoples. Many families became joined in love and marriage. It was a time of great hope. Until eventually the dark shadow of the Wizards Council reached the land. The wealthy, successful and creative became blamed for the misfortunes of the down trodden. The poor were few and cared for before, but suddenly became many and malcontent and violent unrest ensued. Eventually the goblins came first as poor and helpless masses that deserved to take what the greedy wealthy had; and later as simply invaders grinding the land into despair and hopelessness.
In the end a handful of men and elves and half-elves stood for justice and liberty in the Valley of Light. They led a valiant charge expecting support from kings, human and elf alike, that never came. The resistance was crushed and over the carnage of the last battle a heavy mist fell. The mist that never melts away; the valley became known for a time as the Forest of Mist—and so entered the age of the Wizards Council.
In Faith of the Fallen our heroes liberated valley dispersing the mist and release the tragicly betrayed heroes of the original battle of the Valley of Light. Now home to a mysterious druid known only as the One, the elf Princess Syier and her elves, the Resistance and their dubious leader Gunter the Great and Lord Shalo’dyn and his satyrs.
