Welcome to Gloam, the Drowning City. Here lies the gateway to the Realm, a dark jewel upon the Inner Sea. Once a proud metropolis on its way to becoming one of the most powerful cities of the Scarlet Empire, a darkness has fallen upon this vibrant place. An invisible horror stalks the nights, drinking the breath of mortal and Dragonblooded alike, leaving their grisly bodies in the streets. Unbeknownst to its people it is the Dragonblooded of Gloam itself who are the killers, propelled by a strange darkness that boils deep beneath the city streets.
