Eyes of Despair (EoD)

In the beginning Darden had come forth with His great bowl filled to the brim with the seeds of Despair. Fingers cast out the seeds in all directions. Watering these seeds with the fluids of His body and the blood of those who walked and crawled upon the face of Tonin. Under His watchful gaze did those seeds grow and bear fruit. Darkly bloated things which seemed to whisper of sorrow unhindered. The roots went deep into the ground, seeking those dark places and prying fingerlike tendrils into them, exploring in an ever widening net of tangled turmoil. Those creatures which ate of the fruit were twisted out of shape, warped into a myriad of shapes and sizes. Each with a secret knowledge that they dared not share with those beings which spilled across the world in the violence of war, for these secrets would bring only further devastation and destruction and they were sorely afraid. They protected the fruits, devouring them and carefully hiding the seeds where none tread save those wizened creatures.

Time changes everything, and, as was the way of Despair, the creatures failed in their task, for the seeds they had hidden had found way to take root. Despair is a hearty thing, it survives where all others things wither and fall to dust. It endures in the fallow soil with a tenacity which surpassed all boundaries. In their secret places they bloomed and sought the surface to better spread their seeds to be sewn across the face of Tonin. It flourished in those places where all else was rot and death. Sprouting between the slack jaws of long forgotten men and women. Curled about discarded swords and shields and armor until it covered the ground in all it's foul finery.

As time passed it happened that a group of nomads came upon the vast field of bloated dark fruit which had run wild and free as far as the eye could see. Those were the days of hunger and only a fool passed up such wealth, even if it seemed exotic and strange. The nomads feasted upon the fruit. The pulp of which was bloodred and seemed fleshy and the seeds which spilled as black horde once it was split open. The juice ran as dark and thick as vitae but was a sweet as anything that had ever passed over lips. They devoured the fruit until they could eat no more. In the process some had gobbled the seeds. Those who had swallowed the seeds fell to the ground screaming agony. Blood running from eyes and ears and nostrils until they lay lifeless. Returning to the ground to feed that which they had eaten. Those who had eaten the fruit but had not swallowed the seeds were sent into a deep sleep.

While they dreamt there came to them great visions. They were awakened while they slumbered. A third eye was opened inside their minds. This eye saw beyond their small world, it showed them secret things and secret ways. When they woke they were greatly changed. For the touch of Darden was upon them. They woke to discover a third eye which had sprouted upon brow. A milky white orb which saw the truth in all things. They knew that they must protect the fruits of Despair and tend its seeds. Thus they drew away from all humanity, becoming a secretive lot. They deigned never to speak aloud ever again, but to remain silent, for their tongues might betray the secrets and cause the fruits to be plundered. They built and harvested the fruit, collecting the seeds. In their silent secret ways they began to sew the seeds. Thus they do to this day.
