"There was once an entity that knew everything, but never spoke. For every secret that escaped, it became weaker and its enemies stronger."[1]

The Hand is a minion of The King, wandering the darkness and paying visits to human settlements. In a similar manner to the King's Men, The Hand's interaction with a settlement can either be a valuable boon or a brutal punishment. The Hand's whim seems to be based more upon the principles of the settlement, tending to favor those who have embraced the harsh nature of the darkness.[2]

Survivors who resist The Hand's punishments challenge the being to combat. The Hand is a terrifying foe, toying with the survivors until they either do enough damage to him or until he deems that they have survived the encounter for long enough. The Hand then returns to the darkness, leaving a reward...of sorts.
