Anyone who grew up in the 1980s is familiar with this classic. But let's give a darker twist to the world of Eternia. A powerful lich-lord is battling his way towards an ancient fortress, home of an elder spirit of magic. This spirit, fearing for his safety, commands his lieutenant - a sorceress - to assemble a group of heroes to face the villain. And so they come together: Adamok, a barbarian-paladin; Theela, an amazon warrior; and Dunkan, a dwarven veteran and Theela's foster father.
And yet they are not the lich-lord's only concern. He must deal not only with the backstabbing of his followers - a sahuagin prince, a bugbear chieftain, a vampiress - but he must also contend with the yuan-ti nation that has returned to claim their home, where the lich now reigns!
Meanwhile, the demon that taught the secrets of magic to the lich-lord is slowly breaking free of his extradimansional prison. With his hordlings in tow, he'll set Eternia ablaze in the course of his revenge.
You'd better have the power!
|Adamok, the barbarian/paladin|
Adamok was a simple barbarian warrior when the sorceress revealed his true heritage: he was the long-lost son of the deceased ruler of Eternia! Vowing revenge against the lich that killed his father, he took upon himself the mantle of a paladin and rode his dire tiger to battle.
|Theela, the amazon fighter|
Theela is a proud amazon, trained in battle by her peers and by her foster father, the reclusive veteran Dunkan. But when Thorskel turned the amazon queen Lynn into a vampiress, Theela vowed revenge against them both. Her nation is all but decimated, yet she fights on.
|Thorskel, the lich-lord|
Thorskel was a natural wizard. He learned all the dark secrets and earned lichdom by apprenticing to the demon Dakhor. In a masterstroke, he imprisoned Dakhor in a demiplane of Fright, and proceeded to rule over the motley assortment of monsters that make up his court.
|Lynn, the evil|
Not too long ago, Queen Lynn was the revered leader of the amazons. Under unknown circumstances, she fell to Thorskel's seduction. Now a vampire sorceress, she hunts down the remnants of her nation, specially Theela. Lynn's spirit hungers for power and blood. And she will have them.
|Dakhor, the demon king|
Dakhor has lived for millenia, ruling over his endless horde and subjugating dimensions to his yoke. But, meager centuries ago, his most promising apprentice proved he learned Dakhor's lessons far too well, and imprisoned the demon king. Now, Dakhor is ready to break free.
