Many years ago, there was a powerful wizard that sought to increase his power as much as he could. His hunger was never satiated, and he sought out more and more sources of magic. In his search for further power, he came across a demon that offered to give the wizard his magic, in exchange for a way to stay in the human world. The wizard agreed to this bargain, and fashioned a body for the demon to inhabit in this mortal realm.
But the power that the demon had given him proved to be too great. The wizard sought out the demon again, begging him to take back the magic that had corrupted him to his core. But this was impossible, the demon said, without first separating the magic from his soul. The wizard searched for a way to rid himself of the magic, and finally found a solution. The demon was nearby, secretly waiting for his chance to claim the magic and kill the wizard in his weakness.
But something went terribly wrong…
Magic hangs thick in the air.
Creatures of darkness mill about in clumps of writhing bodies.
They are eager to be set loose.
“Patience,” a dark voice says. “Soon, you will be free… And so will I.”
