The Fade is the thin, spiritual veil between the physical world and realm of the dead. Found within the Emberlight, the fade is was created by a curse cast upon the land by the Amani Trolls. This was done during the final hours of the elven conquest of the Emberlight. The fade makes it impossible for the souls of recently departed beings to cross into the spirit world to peace. Instead, it forces spirits to linger within the Fade. The fade is naturally corrosive and overtime will corrupt those spirits into malevolent beings. Most powerful spirits run the risk of becoming a Mandrake.
