On a dark and gloomy day in Haven, or was it night, no one could tell for sure anymore, the clouds were too dark and thick when they came, everyone thought it was just a normal storm passing by, but it never seemed to pass by. It started to effect the land, shortness in freshwater, plants started to die without sunlight, animals started to run in fear, trying to find an escape but the island was only so big, the people themselves frightened and having no idea what it was or what to do. Many of them continued with their daily lives, hoping that everyone was on the same schedule but without the sun, no one could tell if it was day and if the shops were open. Thankfully they were able to at least tell when the sun was up, or was it the moon. The clouds being a bit lighter, shedding beams of light through small holes that soon closed up, but it wasn't enough to establish time.
With the never ending darkness, three heros got together and decided to figure out what this darkness was and hoping to bring back the light of day. They ventured forth into the forests and away from the civilization, armed with weapons and rations enough for survival. Their destination was the tallest mountain on the island, but it was a couple days trip to get there. There was just enough light in the forest for them to venture through safely but they had no clue how long it would last.
But the heros weren't the only ones, three others, ones that were taking advantage of the forever night, and ultimately keep it that way. They stuck together and ventured around the town of Minor-Haven, they came across a rumor that three others were gathering and making their way to the top of the summit to stop the darkness. They couldn't allow that to happen and being that it was a rumor, they just weren't sure. They decided to check on it either way and left town, following a trail but the three heros were not yet being in sight.
There were travelers that journeyed across the land seeking adventure, wealth, maybe treasure, a separate peaceful haven, or whatever be their goal in their quest. They seemed to neither like nor dislike the darkness, they took no sides yet were curious just the same, looking for signs that lead to a deeper interest. Out in the distance that was viewable from most anywhere was a large white cloud of smoke that was obviously distinct from the darker clouds above. A sign of a large fire no doubt, standing in the way of others, it could be just a campfire set up by some man on a hunting trip, or perhaps a beacon of help or distress. There's only one way to find out.
