Tale of the Rune Marked
The third age or Wunderand
Reign of the Blackest Day
A Brief history
16 years before the start of this tale was a terrible day, forever dubbed the “Blackest Day” when the realms most renown warrior and sages and over a thousand souls were lost during a magical onslaught under the shroud of the largest cloak of magical darkness. This curtain of interpretable shade fell over one of the greatest cities ever, Cloud city, and persisted for 1 day and 1 hour. When the shadow lifted, buildings were left unharmed, marred with blood. However, there were no bodies save for 12 children who had all fallen unconscious.
Within the coming week a demonically empowered Rakshasa took control over the entire continent. Breaking into five districts. The Rakshasa cares little for the details and the lives of those under him. Because of his flippant attitude toward demi-human lives he has established a cast system based on how “human” you look. Leaving the humans of the world in a very undesirable position.
Marks of Fate and the 12 fated ones
Before anyone had an opportunity to do anything a monistary of monks recognized the danger that befell the world after the Darkest day, and quickly scooped up the babes to raise them in a secluded monistary. For 16 years these devout monks trained the black children in ways to protect themselves as well as in the use of the powers bestowed upon them by the birthmarks they each posses.
