World of Darkness - Alpha Network
“Never in my house.. Ye abide by m’rules ya see…”
- This is the very closest of the Shadow Realms and borders our own world, so close it’d be touching it if it wasn’t for the Gauntlet, known among Stormwall and among Wraiths as the Shroud. The Shadow is also known as the “Spirit World” due to being so full of Spirits, each craving to push on over and break through into our living, material world.
- The Spirits can see through the protective, usually impassable membrane of the Gauntlet and see all the life, joys, passion and experiences going on in the Fallen World but they are trapped and imprisoned, unable to feed on the Essences and Experiences they so very much desire.
- The Winds of Chaos blow through these Realms, changing them eternally. The “Spirit Highways” or Spirit Ways are like flowing rivers of the dead or spirits who get caught in the rushing rapids of easy movement.
