The World is Ending... Again.
The sun is dying over Ashathar. Kataklysm arrives every three thousand years. It's always different, but whatever form it takes, the result is the same—it brings humanity to the brink of extinction. The last Kataklysm... happened three thousand years ago. To save the world from Kataklysm, Tannen seeks an ancient path, once cultivated by the ancestors, long since abandoned and forgotten. To find the path, Tannen must venture into hostile lands. Did the path save a remnant of life during the last Kataklysm? Or was there something else about the path they pursued that left them warped, exiled, and nearly forgotten? Tannen must venture into Tensia. A place occupied by a barbaric superhuman race. Tannen isn't a warrior. He's an archaeologist. His companion, Valoria, is an astrologist. This could be the last Kataklaym, the end of humanity forever. Can Tannen and Valoria survive in hostile territory, or will their deaths seal the fate of the world? Darkworld is the inaugural installment of Kataklysm: Origins—a series that details the rise of the post-apocalyptic, magical world of Blightmage and the Kataklysm Series. It features a progression and cultivation system with both good and evil cosmic dimension. Darkworld is a standalone story that you can enjoy as a first-read in the Kataklysm universe.
