Charter

From the tomes of Drow Lore, written in blood of innocents, scribed on the skin of serpents. First penned by Dralanthar, first Forteller of the Darkness.

And so it was that they began to create him from the Elements. The council was all too unaware, sheltered in their naivete from the darkness that they would birth in Darden's black bowl; they had no way to know that despair breeds, and that suffering - like chaos - is the catalyst of creation. If only they had known what they would do, what they would meld in dark shadows.

When Darden the Fiendish One was born, he carried with him a bowl; a container of shadows and hidden things. The bowl was hidden from mortal view and many a legend was concocted of its contents, but the truth was far too terrible for those innocents to concieve. The dark truth is known only in these scrolls; the bowl was full of despair, and more, it was full of hatred, anger, suffering, pain, misery and destruction, it was full of all he black things of this world's soul. The world about him was one of vibrant life and ingenious discovery. Each day a child learning, a baby crawling, a man finding new and better ways, deceived by blinding false light, thinking that this was 'his' world - if only he knew the truth, man was merely an imposter, a pretender to the claim of supreme race of this world.

The despair came from the eternal darkness, black as night and thick as blood - perhaps the oldest force of the universe - so quick to claim a newborn or an innocent. No rhyme, no reason, nothing beyond the pure agonizing perfection of brutal chaos. His bowl was fabled to become larger, fuller, and darker as time plodded forth. In truth, his despair began to overflow the bowl, until Darden gathered his courage to drink from it. But before he could gather it to his lips, and even as it ran down the lines of his face and beard, the drops spilled and scattered widely, falling on the heads and quickly finding the hearts of his followers. The results would quickly show amongst his people. They had known him once as Darden the caring, a lie he chose to perpetuate in his own cruel deception, but after he drank from the bowl the truth was seen far more often then not, Darden was the Daemon of Tismad, the Sire of Despair, the Shining Darkness of agony and pleasure. His children, his progeny, evolved from those days forward.

The light became their bane, until after time they grew strong enough to tolerate its touch, to some degree at least. But though the light of day they had sacrificed, they had gained beyond mortal imagination; in the darkness they learned, they grew and they plotted dark destruction. The touch of the scattered drops was addictive, but because no more was to be found, it left those that had tasted it thirsting, forever thirsting for something that they could never quite gain, something that could only ever be partially slaked, slaked by blood, the blood of innocents. In the dark shadows, those that stayed learned of wanton cruelty, of dark passion and agonised pleasure. As the shadows that surrounded their lives finished corrupting their souls, they learned the links between lust and suffering, and they discovered the joy of destruction.

For time unrecorded, the children of Darden were contained, their hidden lairs unseen by the mortals that roamed the surface, their chaos and pleasure intertwined, until Darden's agents amongst them chose to intervene. It was a period of glorious, beautiful chaos and suffering, and soon one sat above them all, a leader of his people, enthroned upon the skulls of those that had opposed him. The council of those that remained was formed and so they ruled.

In the peace that came before the Simple Sin, the council plotted, the Oracles and Diviners coursing the shadows of despair, preparing for when their time would come. When a follower of Foret was manipulated into murdering a follower of Darden over a woman, the glorious chaos spread through the realms as the gods fed the fuel for their own needs; Darden's progeny gathered there power in preparation. When the Last Sin came, the true breaking of the gods' unity, Darden's bowl overflowed with despair, faster then even he could drink. As the gods battled over the skies of Tismad, their energy pouring forth caused storms, floods, hurricanes and rock slides for weeks, for months; time was lost to those above the surface, but below, the Drow and the Shadows prospered. It seemed but a blink of an eye to the gods and to those of us who sheltered in the cool darkness below, but to the surface dwellers, it was devastating, it was beautiful, and it was perfect.

In the nights that followed, in the shadows of the normally luminescent moon now made dim by the gods' rage, we brought forth devestation and we gathered power as a surface child gathers candy in a store left unattended. We are the Isha al-Shaitan, the moonlight prayer to the Daemon, the dark chilren of the Devil, and we alone shall remain when Darden's glory rules unchallenged.
