Grim Dawn is an action role-playing game in which players are thrust into the dark, war-torn fantasy world of Cairn where a once proud empire has been brought to ruin by war, and the human race driven to the edge of extinction. The cataclysmic war has not only decimated human civilization, but is warping the very fabric of reality and, in its wake, giving life to new horrors. Small enclaves of human survivors exist scattered throughout the world, holed up in hidden refuges. These humans have quietly watched the warring invaders destroy one another and have become wise to the strengths and vulnerabilities of their otherworldly foes.
A few survivors have begun to exhibit strange new abilities after surviving possession or exposure to the warp. These unnatural powers are feared by some but give many new hope of launching a resistance to fight the "outsiders" and reclaim what is left of their world. You are one such individual. Blessed, or perhaps cursed, by the touch of Aetherial influence, you have powers and strength beyond that of normal men. It is now up to you to take this fearsome potential and use it against the enemies of humanity. Will you be the one to save Cairn from its grim fate? Or is humanity doomed to extinction?
