0 · 114 views · located in The Abyss

a character in “The Mansion on the Edge of the Abyss”, as played by eljacko


The Shadow is a horrible presence that inhabits the mansion, maliciously hunting those within, doing everything it can to slaughter them. The Shadow usually manifests as a gaseous, smokey shadow, but it can also manifest beings and things, and create waking nightmares. It operates throughout the entire mansion and the grounds, but it has a focal point somewhere which manifests as a flickering ball of total darkness, sort of like a black hole. It is from here that it can be killed. The Shadow is omniscient, and can see everything that occurs inside the house. Its manifestations can only kill conscious people, but it can create nightmares in unconscios or sleeping people that can kill the the person in real life if they do so in the dream. These nightmares also contain focal points of the Shadow, which will end the nightmare if destroyed. THe origin of the Shadow is unknown, but journals, written by an unknown person of course, litter the mansion that may provide some insight.

So begins...
