- "Dread Emperor Tenebrous, I dredged up. He was the one to get it done. He’d seemed like a promising ruler early in his reign, until he’d made one deal too many with the Underworld and become convinced he was a giant spider stuck in a man’s body. Things had swiftly gone downhill after that."

Reign[edit | edit source]
In his early reign he was a promising ruler. He oversaw the construction of an Imperial road from the Blessed Isle all the way to Ater. Once he made too many deals with the Underworld he begun thinking he was a giant spider in a human body. It seems like he did actually turn into a giant spider as Ater’s sewers contain half a million of them, rumoured to be spawned from Tenebrous himself.
