The Dimming Era
“In all of my travels I have never met a being of evil planier blood that didn’t work hard at perpetuating their own stereotype” Lontain, the Wandering Bard
Tainted are beings with infernal or demonic ancestry. This will almost always be present in first generation offspring, but from then it can manifest itself almost randomly for many generations. Some noble families claim blood lines tracing back to ancient demons and devil lords and look to tainted offspring as heralds and champions to command them. While tainted is most common in humanoids, there are tales of tainted animals or even dragons. Tainted inherit some of the dark abilities of their ancestors to include certain traits.
