The Pale

From Nightingale Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

The Pale is a miasma[1] that "overwhelmed the earth"[2] just prior to the start of the game, coinciding with the return of the Fae.[3]. Humans from all over the earth fled through the portal network to Nightingale, hoping it would have the strength of magic to repel the Pale. Instead, the portal network collapsed, scattering the refugees across the Fae realms.

Very little is known about the Pale, but since the human study of magic is centralized in Nightingale, getting back to that city is the Realmwalkers' best hope for discovering a way to counter it.[4]
