The World of The Dark Commonwealth.
“How the blackness of the night perverts our daily world. Turns it insides-out, shows the bones above the flesh, the corrupting threat that's so easily hid away in the dazzle of sunlight.”
The world of Dark Commonwealth exists in an atmosphere of earthy realism shot through with threads of the uncanny and the supernatural, threads which could eventually weave together into a full-blown tapestry of horror.
All the inhabitants of the three kingdoms, of whatever religious or political alignment, and of whatever level of social standing or degree of sophistication, are aware at some level of what can only be described as a rising tide of malignancy abroad.
Decade by decade and year by year, month by month, it has been mounting and intensifying, setting men at each other's throats, dividing communities into ever-smaller and ever more mutually hostile sub-sections with ever more extreme beliefs and violent emotions.
And this all-too-human animosity has been accompanied by an escalating increase in bizarre and inimical natural (and less natural) phenomena, for all the world as if a voracious darkness has been waking in the land.
