Vora's Pact[edit | edit source]


We trusted you with our lives, Goddess. You told us the seal held evil at bay. But we fell prey to a different kind of evil. And so, I choose a stronger path. I choose the power to protect myself. I am coming for you Goddess (I am coming...), you and your land's peace. No matter what game you play, I will sweep the board of your pawns (Pawns...). Go ahead, warn them, I will not be stopped (Cannot be stopped...). Darkness will engulf this world (Darkness...) and I will be its herald! (*laughter*)

Ever since her childhood, Vora had always heard how their goddess, Io, loved and cared for them. Even when she was broken and not herself, Vora still believed. She joined the martial order tasked with protecting ancient seals. As things grew darker, crusades killing off her brothers and sisters, Vora still believed Io would save them. Io never came. Her faith shattered, Vora whispered to the Darkness, and the Darkness whispered back. She had found a new god, and she would use its power to end the vicious cycle of higher powers treating their subordinates as disposable pawns. The realm is headed towards a path of self-destruction, and Vora is more than happy to oblige.

Calamity[edit | edit source]


Atlas: "I watched in horror as The Maw was released... Desperation saw this Realm destroyed. It was swift, from the time the first village was taken... the day the last stronghold fell. It consumed everything that stood in its way. Until there was nothing. I saw it happen once."

"Not. This. Time."

"United, we can change the outcome."

Yagorath: "Change the outcome? The outcome was never in question. Your petty lives... Your useless conflicts are so small. Unite against me... to be consumed together... Don't be scared. This Realm will find peace at last. I am the beginning of the end."

"I am Yagorath, and I will consume this Realm."

"Let us feast."

A world-ending force that spreads across the universe in a never-ending hunger, The Maw, had finally been unleashed into the Realm. Though momentarily weakened by the actions of a broken goddess, with the help of one of said goddess's previous followers, Yagorath, a piece of The Maw emerged once again, ready to bring an end to what her harbinger started.
