|ART BY ME
Long ago, before evil sundered even the heavens, the Highfather looked upon the beauty of the angel Bethzeren and granted him the divine right to create the world, which was to be called Nevendaar. And Bethrezen did. His world was magnificent, and its inhabitants wanted for nothing. But rancor grew among the lesser angels who, in a pique of jealousy and rage, sowed disharmony and ill-will among the hitherto peaceful tribes of Nevendaar.
When the Highfather looked down upon Nevandaar, he was aghast. Where was the harmony that Bethrezen had promised ? Where were the endless green pastures ? The Highfather saw only suffering and strife : the green pastures were scorched black by ceaseless wars Nevendaar was to be Highfather's pride and joy, but Bethrezen had betrayed him. The Highfather's fury shook the heavens. Bethrezen would be punished...
After 6 000 years of imprisonment in chaos, Bethrezen's earthly minions - the Legions of the Damned - created a breach in their master's dungeon. All that remained was to perform the final ritual that would grant Bethrezen freedom. But the Highfather revealed the location of the abominable ritual the Empire and the Mountain Clans. The Legions of the Damned were trapped in their mountain temple, and the secret rune wisdom inscribed on the door would ensure that they would remain there for ten years.
Now, ten years has passed, and the Legions are free to perform the rites that will free Bethrezen once and for all...
The Legions of the Damned are plotting their vengeance as the seal to Bethrezen’s prison deteriorates...
