Thousands of years ago, the plane that became known as Darkhope was created by two beings, known only as The Brother and The Sister. During the creation of Darkhope, the two siblings were said to be interrupted by a dark shadow of fear. The fear creature snaked it’s tendrils in the world and fear took root, and while humanity, created by The Brother and The Sister, came into existence, so too did the creatures of the night.
The Brother and The Sister protect humanity from the creatures of evil, granting their clergy great powers. The Brother teaches the value of cleverness and bravery, and his clergy, the Knights of the Shield, are tasked with protecting the innocent. The Sister teaches the value of being prepared, as well as how to withstand the pain and hardships of living in such a harsh world. Her clergy, the Knights of the Crucifix, are tasked with seeking and punishing the guilty.
Darkhope is a small plane, featuring only a single nameless continent (often referred to as Darkhope, as well) and a smattering of islands. Four moons circle the sky in two pairs, said to be the Eyes of the Brother and the Eyes of the Sister.
