Somewhere Else. It proved too difficult, and corrupted the kings as well as the rest of Astora. The Kings became spectral beings, with the only purpose of draining the life of any who dare venture into Astora in the hopes of regaining their humanity. The citizens of Astora became ghosts, stealing the souls of anything they could slay. Many of the ghosts are adventurers, killed by the ghosts, but unable to leave to a better place as they lost their souls. They have anger towards anyone who enters Astora, as they are jealous that they aren't trapped there. They try to slay them and take their souls, and therefore leave. The only thing left is the Sentinels, huge armored knights who seem indestructible, fighting and fighting the ghosts. They never sleep, or need to drink or eat. They never die. They will be there forever until time itself fades away.
