The Dark Lords have only manifested themselves upon Aerynth once, but their unholy wills have been focused on the World from the time of its beginning. There have always been a precious few who heard the Call of Chaos in their dreams, dark souls who felt the presences Beyond. Many were driven mad by the baleful influence of Chaos, but those who endured the touch of Chaos were drawn into the service of the Dark Lords, offering up their very souls to the masters of Chaos in return for power.
Until the Chaos Gate began to open none could say how many hidden heretics lay within the Churches and Conclaves of the Wise. Now these pawns of Chaos stand revealed, spreading the terror of their dark masters wherever they tread.
