->''And though the Sun may plead and threaten,\\
The [[WeirdMoon Moon will stand her ground!]]\\
\\
It comes to this at last, I will no longer yield the sky,\\
If they cannot love but one princess alone.\\
See the moon is rising, she has come to claim the heavens for her own!\\
[[IAmSong And all will know the wonder\\
Of my dark and jeweled sky]]\\
When all the world is wrapped\\
In an eternal lullaby\\
So say goodnight at this,\\
The final setting of the sun\\
[[NewEraSpeech Tomorrow dawns in darkness\\
The nighttime has begun!]]''

->''I had a dream, which was not all a dream.''\\
''The bright sun was extinguish'd, and the stars ''\\
''Did wander darkling in the eternal space, ''\\
''Rayless, and pathless, and the icy earth ''\\
''Swung blind and blackening in the moonless air; ''\\
''Morn came and went--and came, and brought no day, ''\\
''And men forgot their passions in the dread ''\\
''Of this their desolation; and all hearts ''\\
''Were chill'd into a selfish prayer for light.''
-->-- From '''Darkness''' by LordByron

->Darkness covers the entire world: the sun no longer shines; the moon and stars are not seen in the heavens. No light penetrates the inky shroud. Deprived of the sun, the Earth grows cold. White snow drifts down from the black sky, Leaves turn crisp and dead beneath lacy frost. The lakes and rivers freeze more slowly, but in a few days a rime of ice covers them as well, and inches out to sea. The flowers, insects, birds and animals of summer are the first to die. Even the winter-hardy evergreens slowly wither, however, without the sun's light to sustain them. As the cold sweeps into the tropics, creatures that never felt winter shiver and die.
->Humanity resists as best it can: where the power grid remains intact, generators hum and lights shine against the darkness. These regions would be larger had Kindred elders not sabotaged civilization to protect themselves. Less fortunate people huddle around fireplaces and light candles. The people who remain in cities are hit the hardest. Few among their undead masters care very much.
