“There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in your philosophy.”
- William Shakespeare
Something wicked this way comes...
...many wicked things in fact.
Welcome to Harrowed World, watch your head and your mind or you might just lose them. Let me tell you about this world, a place where supernatural creatures, manipulate and influence humanity. These beings keep themselves obscured from the human masses. In plain sight, these creatures lurk, work, live and play secretly amongst humans all over the globe.
THAT WHICH IS HIDDEN
In Harrowed World there are a number of sentient supernatural beings known as Latents. There are four kinds of Latents; these are vampires, changelings, magical folk and skinchangers. As well as Latents, there are numerous types of Geists, otherwise known as spirits. Some humans can see Latents and Geists for what they are, they are known as Beholders. Check out each of the individual lore sections to find out more.
“How blessed are some people, whose lives have no fears, no dreads; to whom sleep is a blessing that comes nightly, and brings nothing but sweet dreams”
- Bram Stoker
It's not uncommon for Latents to take humans on as vassals though their methods for doing so vary, for instance when a vampire repeatedly feeds upon a human over and over, their victim’s body and mind will start to submit to the vampire becoming what’s known as a doxy though the stronger willed the person the harder this is to do. A doxy will feel compelled to follow the commands of their dominus.
Many Latents can not only take humans as vassals but also create primitive supernatural creatures that are not in themselves Latents and have limited to no sentience. An example of this is how some vampires will combine animal and or human parts into a constructed body and animate it, creating a feral though controllable undead creature called a ferine.
