Rules For The T.O.D
The touch of darkness is represented by NPCs dressed in black rags who avoid the light, but will attempt to grab anyone not within safety. They can not be defeated through combat but can easily be kept at bay with spells or light shed from a flame. Players can always make out the figures, and should generally act out a sense of discomfort in their presence. When someone is grabbed, the npc will whisper a command. This command must be completed at the first available opportunity. There is a second type of manifestation represented by GM's in black rags, but walking on stilts. The very presence of these entities inspires madness, and touching them should be avoided. Spells can be used to ward them off, but physical attacks do nothing. AKA, please do not attack someone walking around on stilts in the woods for safety purposes.
