Monsters and the Dark Era is a book from Luminous Arc, the first game of the Luminous Arc series.

Monsters and the Dark Era is a book that can be found in the early on in the game Luminous Arc. It is a book written by the Luminous Church and focuses mainly on monsters and how they came to exsist across Canal.

Unlike many other books produced by the Luminous Church, Monsters and the Dark Era was written completely on reaserch and observation by members of the Church, as is clear when the passages of the book are viewed. This is much unlike many other books of the Luminous Church that read almost completely as religion texts.

In many of these books made by the Church, the contents are said to be unquestionable facts (although most are proven to be incorrect latter in the game). The book of Monsters and the Dark Era however states that it is mainly theory, and is not completely set in stone.

Actual Text Edit

(The following is the actual text that is viewable when a player selects Monsters and the Dark Era while visiting the library at the Holy Congress, Eastern Branch)

Alph: This book talks about monsters.

Monsters and the Dark Era: Monsters that appear in the Dark Era can be divided into two categories. The first category is monsters that were formed naturally with the world. The other is a form of goblin, which was born when the world by the Darkness.

The established theory from the scriptures is that the former creatures are controlled by the evil Witches but this has not been verified. The origins of the goblins, and the presence of many other monsters, remains steeped in mystery.

However, we are certain that these monsters were a threat to the people who lived in the Dark Era. If the monsters ever return to this world, we must prepare for a return of the powers of Darkness.
