Plot

Nightmare Shard Plot 1
 "Brannoc’s rage had torn free a shard of the Forge. It fell earthward and crashed in the Shattered Lands. There, its magic went wild. Still a part of the Forge, it could turn the dreams of mortals into potent reality. But nearby were those infected with the curse, and it was their dreams that were born . Thus twisted nightmares gave birth to darker dreams, made flesh that which should not exist. The Twilight sensed the power of the shard, soon witches and other warped creatures journeyed towards it."
— The Aedai Chronicles

The fireball had arched skywards, burning its way through the clouds, challenging the new sun with a blaze of its own. Fuelled by Brannoc’s frustration, fear and scorn, it had slammed into the Forge.

As the majestical palace had shuddered, those within realized their home was not beyond attack. Moon’s gaze found the shard of the Forge that had broken away. Its unfettered magic already snaked through the lands, powerful and chaotic. Even the Skylords knew nothing of the Forge’s creation, they assumed it had been created by the gods. But the magic streaming from this piece seemed strange and vile.

A presence was closing in, one she knew and feared even before it had been corrupted by the Twilight. The Sisters of Chaos, witches who claimed most of the Shattered Lands as their own, seemed to know exactly what had crashed into their realm. Even beneath the Twilight insanity, Moon could feel their ancient, vile intent.

Nightmare Shard - Conclusion

Nightmare Shard Conclusion 1
 "With no Twilight creatures to feed the shard their nightmares, it grew silent. But dangerous magic lay dormant in its shattered form and such potential remained a dire threat."
— The Aedai Chronicles
