Evernight: The Darkest Fantasy
More than a thousand years ago, during the time known as the Scourge, savage spider-like creatures infested the land, nearly wiping out the Races.
Only the coming of the human heroine Tarrian united the dwarves, elves, half-folk and humans. The alliance hunted the spiders deep into their very lairs, driving the entire species to extinction.
After the Scourge, the Races fell to fighting among one another. At least three Great Wars have scarred the lands of Tarth over the succeeding years, the last of which ended just over a decade ago.
