| The Unholy Blight: Reavers (Book)
| 'This book speaks of the coming of the Reavers to Telara.'
| When the dragons first invaded Telara, heralding the coming of Regulos the Destroyer, the mortal races resisted. Many of those on the battlefield were suddenly overcome by madness, savagely and inexplicably turning on their own. A few warriors learned to control the madness, and returned to a land decimated and blighted by death. These men became known as the Reavers, who are both scarred and transformed by the horror they experienced battling the demons.
Universally despised and feared, the Reavers
rampaged across Telara, leaving a wide swath of
destruction and death in their wake. Drawing on the
very energies of the Plane of Death, and embracing
the resulting madness, these warriors became masters
of a terrifying and brutal fighting style.
Although the original Reavers have long since passed
from the world of Telara, their combat skill and
training lives on. Only the bravest and strongest of
souls are allowed to attempt the Reaver training, as
the Plane of Death's power is easily mastered, nor
resisted for long. Insanity is a constant risk, and it is
also not uncommon to see a cruel smile or bloodlust
in the eyes of a Reaver vanquishing an enemy. On the
battlefield, Reavers are the most brutal of warriors,
unleashing such fury as to terrify their allies almost as
much as their enemies.
