One of the Dark Hunters
Isle legends speak of the Dark Hunters, a group of thirteen
creatures that stalked the Island, preying upon any beastkin
they came across, killing them and taking their skins
for their own. Unlike most legends however, the rumours
of the Dark Hunters were firmly based upon facts. The
earlist records of Beast Isle's histories tell of the
Dark Hunters, describing them as monsterous savages that
draw their powers from the pain, the fear and even the
very essence of the creatures that they slay, flaying
their skins before donning them themselves.
many years, the Dark Hunters preyed on the people of the
Island, with no family untouched by the deaths and slaughter
that the creatures brought with them. In 1104 however,
two years after the people of Beast Isle began trading
once again with the mainland, the Hunters seemed to disappear.
For six months, rather than the multitude of murders and
disappearances, nothing was heard. In the spring of 1105,
the killing began again, twice as ferocious as before.
What is more, with the discovery of a transport circle
on Beast Isle, the Hunters have been seen on the mainland
of Mauritanja. Their intentions as yet are unclear.
