Shadow Rain Overview
Shadow Rain takes place in the world of Elpoch. Elpoch was a world much like our own, until a mysterious event irrevocably changed the very nature of existence. During the transition from what we would call the Medieval to the Renaissance periods, a cataclysmic event of unknown origin occurred, suddenly thrusting magic into the world. The event is known as The Incursion. Burgeoning theories of science were abruptly shattered by inexplicable new phenomena. The balance of power among nations was thrown into disarray when certain soldiers learned to harness the destructive power of magic. Scholars are now racing to document new abilities, magically charged locations, and new beasts. Some of the beasts are distortions of their previous kinds, while others seem to be completely new. The religions of the world are in disarray as they try to cope with the spiritual dimensions of the new magic.
