There are infinite unexplored regions of space and time. Dark corners full of strange and deadly creatures. The sheer vastness of the universe makes it unlikely you’ll ever run into one of these nightmares. Unfortunately, meddling with time can have some unintended consequences.

Recently a series of wild rifts have plagued Time’s End. Tears in the fabric of spacetime, allowing dangers which should have remained contained roam free. One of the worst of these is a genetically engineered insectoid species known as THE BLIGHT. Their origin is unknown, though the alien technology used to create them is well beyond anything humans have ever devised. They are a constant threat to adventurers at Time’s End. A constant reminder that sometimes when you mess with the universe, the universe messes back.

It’s easy to mistake these insectoids for mindless killing machines. In truth, they’re far more dangerous. They exhibit high degrees of intelligence in their predatory hive behavior. They communicate through chittering sounds and a low-level form of telepathy, allowing them to coordinate their attacks with preternatural speed. Some have theorized the Blight are artificial lifeforms… custom designed and grown in a lab. One obvious question is… why would you build such a monstrous creation? A better question might be… who would do such a thing? After all, no species in history has ever managed to create a fully sentient artificial life form… save one.
