Hex Blight is the result of the final battles of the War of the Fall. During these battles, the Fomorian Empire unleashed a magical weapon now known only as the Hex. Wherever this weapon struck, the land was scarred by its terrible power. Now these areas are largely uninhabitable, plagued by storms of magic and birthing strange, otherwordly creatures. For some reason monsters find Blighted areas hospitable and attractive, and many towns built near an area of Hex Blight find themselves regularly in need of Monster Hunters
Most Blighted areas are small, a mile or two across at their largest point. A few areas created during the final, desperate days of the war are a terrifying exception to this rule. In these places, travel is perilous and madness is almost certain. Some brave explorers have entered the great Hex Blights and lived to tell about it, but many more have never been seen again.
