11.7.17 TWILIGHT, GOD OF DARKNESS
Since time immemorial, the God of Darkness has existed as a distant, confusing enigma in the eyes of mortal kind. He is often hailed as the Lord of Mysteries, for His is the realm of obscurity and intrigue, of boundless shadows, of forbidden knowledge made manifest without the fetters of morality or zealous indignation. Ambitious, all-seeing, and ruthlessly cunning, Twilight often chooses to remain aloof, employing proxies and puppets to convey His will while the Elder God instead observes silently from the shadows, ever-wreathed in some innocuous guise. It is said that when He speaks, it is with a tongue that could spin raw silver, laden with hushed bargains, honeyed promises, and profound, esoteric revelations that when uttered in sibilant whisper topple empires and crown fresh kings. For eons has the great tapestry of history felt His touch upon its weave, ensnaring the hearts of Man like flies caught in a silken web. A thousand eyes and one has the Dark Lord, His network of operatives united as an invisible army whose tendrils reach every corner of the known and unknown worlds. Permanent pupils in His Arts of secrecy, deceit, intrigue, conflict, and strife, the agents of Darkness seamlessly blend into society, covertly pulling on the strings of princes and paupers alike to conduct His Great Work from everywhere and nowhere all at once. In exchange they receive the gifts of the Dark: the agency to cast off the arbitrary bindings of false religion, the tools to conquer the noisome lies of dogmatic faith, and the freedom to bear witness to the ineffable Truth that is Darkness, unbound and unchained from the illusory tyranny that is mortal existence. Falsely vilified as the Father of Lies, the Dark God alone bestrides the crucible of Truth, denouncing the twin atrocities of faith and worship as a lone bulwark of verisimilitude in a world tainted by the dangerous fictions of the Divine. Those who desire to walk His path should seek the Rook of Darkness. The one-eyed woman holds the key.
