Story Overview


For centuries an impenetrable darkness has shrouded Europe and North Africa, with countless victims succumbing to the ravenous hunger of unchecked pestilence and war. Once a promising glimpse of humanity’s potential, the cradle of civilization has become a well of despair.

 
Many great kingdoms have been devastated, but a select few have grown more powerful. These comprise of the covenant of seven – lords who have allied with Asmodeus, a practitioner of the dark arts who wields the fabled Mace of Tanis. The Mace is imbued with necropotic energy, offering those who wield it a tantalizing promise of ever-lasting life and unbridled power.

 
With this power comes a terrible price: Asmodeus must feed off despair, disease, and poverty. In limited doses, Asmodeus grants the Seven the power they need and crave. In return, they expand their kingdoms with bloody battles and torment their peasants. But can no longer sustain Asmodeus’ ravenous appetite. He now reaches east into the orient, to find new lords who yearn to sample the dark powers.

 
But there is a rebellion. Each of the Seven, addicted to the corrupting power of the Mace, dispatch their best warriors to kill Asmodeus and steal his power. Leaders from the east sense Asmodeus’ plottings and strive to destroy him before it’s too late.

 
Heirs to kingdoms long since vanquished, seek revenge on Asmodeus and those who wield the dark energy. They are the fiercest fighters on Earth, and they all have one thing in common. They all must possess the Mace!
