About one hundred twenty-five years before the beginning of this current campaign, there occurred a cataclysmic event known as the Great Desecration. A monstrous comet that had become corrupted as a result of passing through a portion of the Multiverse known as Far Realm, a plane of nightmarish aberrations, came into momentary orbit with Abode and as a result a portion of the comet broke off and entered the atmosphere providing great visual spectacle for those below. Unfortunately, the meteor showers also brought great devastation and upheaval. Wherever a shard of the comet fell it created an ambit of aberration later to be known as Chaos Scars. The shards contain energy absorbed from the Far Realm and wherever one is found the flora and fauna in that ambit is tainted and transformed by the corrupting energy. Life in the Nentir is a constant struggle to rebuild and survive. One of the goals of Rara Avis is to gather and destroy the shards as well as the aberrations they have created.
