Factions & Magic
Among the Warriors of the Dark Gods, magic is wielded
by sorcerers, whose very name has become a byword
for sinister spells. Many sorcerers are raised
from birth by daemons, others are inducted into the
secrets of the Veil by a patron daemon. Either way,
their mind bends and reforms around the truths they
are taught. What they lack in the finesse or innate understanding
of other casters, is compensated by an
access to raw power through the Veil itself. Such power
is not without cost though, and sorcerers struggle
to maintain the same morality as even their fellow
Each Dark God has need of followers, and each has their methods of ensnaring the souls of the un- wary. Whether it is lust or bloodlust, corruption
of body or of ambition, the traps of the Dark Gods are myriad and competition for the greatest of followers is fierce. Once started on the road to dam- nation, a soul is forever tarnished and spurned by former deities.
Many cultists can be found in the cities of the world, secretly enacting the plots of their overlords. But those of a martial disposition travel to the Wasteland and other grim places, enduring unimaginable trials. The few who survive emerge an entirely different breed – marked in abhorrent fashion, hardened and scarred. Humans make up a great many of these servants of Chaos but they are by no means alone. Trolls, giants and dragons have all been seen among the armies that assail the world.
