Welcome to the ABATHOR: Legends of the Old World Wiki

A Personal Wiki Made for the ABATHOR Campaign Setting

Everything Began In Darkness, And So Shall It Return

These are the first words written within the Book of Nighted Secrets, the many volumes written over the course of millennia that chronicle the creation, mysteries, and prophecies of Abathor. It tells a story within itself, one of a world bathed in eternal night. A world rescued by ancient beings who fought for its prosperity. A world that will end one day, once again plunged into a sea of shadow.

ABATHOR is a campaign setting for D&D 5e. In these pages you will find excerpts from the Nighted Volumes to give you details about the continent of Abathor and the world it inhabits, to enrich the play experience and forge an immersive, deep setting in your imagination.
