the Great Eventide
ORIGINS AND ETYMOLOGY
Astro-English: from Astronese, the word Evenfall is used in this context as a metaphor for “a bad situation” due to the general sense of Evenfall meaning “the onset of the evening”; in the context of the Astroeschatology, Evenfall therefore involves “the choice that humanity may make at Twilightide to forsake scope and therefore avert its transcension.”
