About THE UMBRA

For a thousand years, The Umbra was contained to the territories of the southern kingdoms. Those kingdoms were charged with the task of watching and repelling the growing chaos of the darkness that The Umbra brings. Feeding on the darkness that dwells within us all, The Umbra is a vast and powerful darkness that corrupts, devours, and births new evil wherever it goes. Held in check by only the most powerful and costly of magics, The Umbra dwindled away to almost nothing, and all but disappeared. Believing The Umbra to have finally been defeated, the kingdoms slowly began to relax their arcane wards, and lower their defenses. 600 years passed without a single sign of The Umbra, and its existence passed into myth and legend.

That is when The Umbra struck.

In its time away, The Umbra grew as it feasted on the festering tensions between kingdoms, and the growing suspicion and malice in the hearts of the inhabitants of the south. It began with the Fire Rains, a caustic downpour that immolates entire battlefields in minutes. The Denizens of Shadow followed, making short work of any survivors. The Umbra steadily moved unopposed to the borderlands of the southern and northern kingdoms. A great battle raged. The Umbra was met by the power of the north, and though there were many casualties, the northern armies eventually succeeded in repelling The Umbra's attempts to cross the borderlands. Sealed away once again with powerful magics, the kingdoms of the north vowed to eradicate The Umbra once and for all, whatever the cost.

100 years have past since that costly battle, and the northern kingdoms are still safely sealed away from the kingdoms of the south. But the wards are weakening, and The Umbra is waiting.

The world of Umbra is a vast fantasy world where the armies of light and darkness clash for dominance. Elves and Dwarves live along side Humans and Orcs and other powerful and mysterious races. Told in pulp-like short fiction, the world of Umbra is explored in prose format, and accompanied by illustrations. The world of Umbra is a continuously evolving and growing story, and is best enjoyed with a glass of your favorite spirit.
