Deep in the darkness of the chaos sanctionary glowed a mythical stone on the corpse coverd with maggots and insects. Echos of the great battle still lingered in the chamber undesterbed. The air was not touched the floor was still drenched in blood. The rattle of the world soul stone purified the land and let all the dead rest in peace. The land was free to roam to explore. In the mist of all the darkness the stone began to call, summond for a body to feed off. The red glow drew a merchent in search of treasurse in the barial grounds where demons fell. As he enterd the chamber the stone imdiatly stole his attention, he was dazed, his pupils exploded in flames as his body began to slowly approch the corps. The merchant used his torch to scare off the demonic maggots that where half the size of his arms. There he saw the skull of terror, the hair on his neck stood up as whispers flew into his ears warning him of the evil, whisperd turn back if you value humanity but through the echos the message was vague still it was recived. He became contious and walked away, he turned quikly, something had cought his eye.
"hello" the merchant yelled "is some one there" he shrugged. It would seem he would have walked away, but the bond between his glare and the stone was already to strong. The greed in his heart to be a wealthy merchant was his life goal and at all means he was willing to achive it. With iron confidence he marched up to the skull and grasped the stone with his two hands. As he strugled to pull he looked down at the skull looking as if it was smiling back at the merchant. With this shok he fell on his back but was soon on his feet. The merchant reached in his pouch for his dagger and picked up a fiends skull. The merchant stabbed the terrors forehead and hammerd at the knife, using the fiends skull, into the wedge between the stone and the soket. The merchant stroke the knife deeper and deeper once, twice, then another and another, then the stone budged. The merchent back off as he sensed a evil from what he had done. The corpse blew into flames into a bright flash wich temperaroly blinded the merchant. The corpse was gone, the merchent lost his tresure and turned his back to waisted time. Then he heard a whisper but the voice was slightly different, more rough, more cold, CLAMIS. The merchant turned quikly, a deadly reflex when ones name has been called, "who-whoes there". Nearly blind from the flash all his eyes could see is a blur. His tourch dimmed out, the wind blew ice cold on his skin then the stone began to glow again, the merchant relizing what it was he walked towards it bend down and just looks at the marval. A moment was given for his few moments of humanity, when the stone thrusted into the merchents forhead shrieks of pain and agany, yellls of terror the merchant could feel the stone merging with his body as his blood grew cold as it dripped down his face and heart exploded with fear. The horrid sounds of evil were so ear splitting it WOKE THE DEAD. The sounds of the merchents pain woke the arch angel tyreal who was asleep after the destruction of the soulstone. The yells had not stopped but grew stronger in tyreals head. In his mind he tought they were memories of the shrieks of people in agony and pain, but those shrieks they were more then destruction, more then suffering, the same screems he heard when his tale started, they where shrieks of terror, the warning that diablo walks once more.
A avrage cold day in harrogath the town grew in festival hoping their hero would return. The barbarians where dancing with the rouges, children gatherd around the fire as they herd the tales of the hero who slain THREE prime evils single handedly, how he alone brought hope to humanitys future. Along the walls of Harrogoth the soldiers where drunk of rum and bellys filled with bread. One soilder spotted a weak but noticeble figure in the shadows. He looked around to his companions and orderd for the archers to be on standby. The soilders crept quietly not to desterb the festivaty. Cain saw the shadows of archars marching along the wall and soilders forming. With his knowlage of his past he knows when something is not right. He then stood up alarming atama and natalia.
"Do not worry" cain said with a smerk "I just need some space" Cain walked along the walls when a soilder stopped him
"sir i cannot allow you to proceed pleese go back to thy festive-"
"what is going on?"
"just procedure sir now please" The soilder escorted cain towards the camp fire when the gate doors called for an answer. Cain soon turned around and marched up the stairs to the wall. All where cotius for they remember the horrids wich took place in tristram. The soldiers called for a name but the figure only stood there. Soldiers send him to hell others walked away. But cain insisted for the gates to be opened. The soldiers looked at cain as if he was mad. Cains stern look ensured the doors opening. As the gates opened the archers all took aim and the barbarians all gripped their axes. One man walked through those gates, breathing heavily. His skin was coverd in scabs and blood, his armor filled with arrows and sword tips and his sword was rusted to dust. Cain helped the man up and took him to atama for treatment. The music softend the children stood still. The gossip began and the questions brewed. Cain asked the man what had happend, if he had been wounded from past time but the response that cain got was heart piercing. The man spoke of demons, undead, spirits roaming his homeland across the sea. His men shipped off to gather refuge but demons boarded our ship and destroyed our last hope. We were in search for the hero who slain diablo to help us claim our land back. The man had a glow in his face as he asked for the hero but cain looked away. Cain explained how the hero did not return after baal had died, it is uncertian if the hero even lives. The man throws down his sheet and asks for new armor and a sword. The man recives his new equipment. Cain saw a hero inside the mans eyes as they flaired. It was obvious the man wanted to save his home. The people inside harrogath grew tired of cains secretsy and gathered their belongings and left the town. The man sat with cain and and spoke tales of his battles. How an essence came from the earth, a air that angerd men. 'After the prime evils where destroyed, revolution broke, men where fighting men. I was on our elders side, but my brother, Loki, has transformed into a monster. He rampages across my home killing all that i charish. It was if they had become the demons we souly despised. As men from our army disapeared demons flushed out of the forest. Some of us managed to escape, the ones who live are lucky'. The man rested and insisted to be alone as he tought about his home. Cain walked away and closed the door slowly behind him. Atama had been waiting near the door to talk to cain about this stranger. Cain said nothing only that he is a casualty of the war it was fine to take him in. Still questionable atama bit her touge sensing that cain had his mind twisted on this man. Harrogath had been torn apart. Most of the men had gone off to camp in the wilderness feeling as if they where betrayed by decard cain. While others stayed cain feared the desease of evil had spread over the seas from the continent Vegsega. Cain rested that night having nightmares of the times he spent in tristram. He could not sleep. He stood up and walked into the moonlight. Atama to could not sleep and she talked to cain. Atama did not trust this stranger. His presence here fears the hearts from the viligers even some barbarians want to cut his head off. Cain told atama that the future is going to be demonic. Their only chance rests in this boy and cain will do any thing in his power to make sure this man saves his home. Atama begged for cain to stay away from him and his home. But cain was to close to the heavens it was his duty to assist the lights palidin. Cain tells Atama that he will train and disaplin him until he is molded into the perfect warrior to destroy any evil that has over came his home.
The sun rises over harrogath the break of dawn had crept into the night and now the village is in tormoil. Cain bursts into the mans room waking him up. Cain explains to him he has not much time that the men of the town wish to slay him. The man held his sword but cain stopped him. The numbers where to high and the man had no expirience and the barbarians would eat him alive. As atama struggle to keep the towns sanity the man and cain left through the back door. The town that saved his life now wants to take it. The faces of the barbarians and rouges grew with anger and violence. Their cries echoed through the whole town frightning children and mothers. They threw torches and axes wanting to kill the secrete man. He did not belong on their continent and they where aware of this he was not from any clan they new of. They torched the hut in which the man rested in soon the entire harrogath was on fire under the attack of its own people. Long ways from harrogath cain looks back as the fire of harrogath over shadows the light from the new sun. With only the wilderness to run to the travalers where not safe. The man was sorry for his arrival, him becoming a man of misfortune he poisend the land of harrogarth. Cain explaind it was not his fault. 'The same essence that shadowed his land has attacked harrogath. It is a desease that infects the weak to join the evil forces which taunt them with power and imortality. The strong stay with good and slay the thorns of darkness that has been laid in their path. That is why you and i are not affected by this virus' cain and the man continued their journy as the cries of harrogath tearing each other apart hushed to minor volumes. They travaled for days, days turned to months, the man was irritated and angry. He asked cain why did they travel so much. Cain explaind how they must reach the beach, cross the sea, and destroy the source that is infecting the souls of good men. after several months of wondering the artic travalers reached the peninsula. Few villagers lived there, the ones that did immdiatly reconized decard cain. They ran up to him guided him and his companion and greated them to the vilage of Kilkala and sheltered them where bread and wine where provided. The man spoke to cain, he insisted that they began training at day break. Cain agreed and rested for the night. In the morning cain woke up to find his companion out of his cott. He marched out side and searched for him. Cain walked towards the dock to find the man looking beyond the sea. Cain proped him self next to the man and asked him if he was ready, the man rose and walked to the end of the dock. He told cain something he would never forget, i will always be ready to save my people. Cain stood up and tought the man spells and how to wield his weapon as a hero would. They trained in the barracs the man grew stronger every day. He trained fighting the best of the viligers and won all his battles. He had become a noble palidan. Cain saw much promis in this man. The village elder gave the man golden touch, guntlets of their former hero. The guntlets fit him well and increased his weapons mastry and streanth. One night around the camp fire a group of kids who where playing in the forest stumbled out into the vilage. They claim they saw monsters. The village elder explaind how the peninsula's land was a holy as long as the grass remained green no demonic createre could not walk on their plane. The children cried and spoke of a cave that fumed smoke and heat also one of their companions stumbled down into the den. The man stood up and asked the children to escort him to this cave.
The man, cain and the children walked towards the cave with red smoke. cain told the children to stay back as they came across a brown patch on the grown that surronded the cave that bled smoke remembering the elders words as long as the grass remaind green...cain told the man to be aware of the dangers that the cave may release. The children pointed at the grasss as the brown patch grew out side its radius. Cain looked at the man as the man looked back. Cain shouted at the man and told him to hurry to destroy what ever source that infected the blessed land. Cain turned back and went to town. The man advanced into the cave. The mist of redness lifted as if the guntlets thinned the air. The man herd noises from deep inside the cave. The noises grew to cries he figured it was the lost boy. He continued to walk into the passages. When he herd something move. He herd the darkness snarl. A little red demon walked up the man and waved its club at him. The demon was only at waist high. The man laughed and cut the demons head off in 1 single swipe. The demon fell to his knees then collapsed. The man crouched down and looked at the demon. He heard something. He looked up and drew his sword again. Another red demon walked into the light, den another soon there was ten then twenty one after another they grouped around the man. with club in hand they ran towards the man. He slaughterd one after another, but they kept comming. Some even rose from being slain and attaked. The man was overwhelmed with these foul beasts when he used a skill that cain had tought him. He swung his sword cuasing a aroe gust pushing them away. As their bodys crushed into the walls the man ran deeper into the cave. He was not afraid but paranoid that he was close to death. Following the sounds of the cries for help he walked deaper into the cave slaying more demons and zombies that rose towards him. The cries grew to their strongest inside the next corridor. Their was light inside this passage a dim but radiant light. The man walked into a cave where he found a ANGEL who was kept captive in a bone prison weakend as if the power was being drained from his essence. The man ran up to the angil to find the boy hidding behind the angils prison. The boy screamed Look out. A massive demon was behind the man. The demon was a massive monitor who wielded a giant ax. The beast swung its ax crushing the earth infront of the man. The man attaked the beast but he seemed to be too weak. The man climbed the wall away from the beasts reach. The monster swung his mighty ax and brought down the man. The man was on the foor wounded and afraid. The beast let out a terriying call and plunged his ax. The man rolled as the ax destroyed the land on impact. The man got up and faced the beast. The monster was angrey and gripped his ax with struggle. The blade forged itself into the ground, IT WAS STUCK. The man saw great oppertunity in this he graved his sword ran towards the beasts. He jumped on beast and stabbed its back multiple times. The beast wailed up and down in pain back and foward it ran. The mans weapon was lost in the beasts fury as it stumbled to get the man off. The angel looked up to see what the ruccus was about. Alarmed that a man was in this cave shook him. All he could do is watch. The man pulled out a dagger and poped the beasts eyes out. The beast was blind and charged all over the place running into walls and rocks. The beast was exhasted and took one last charge this time the beast ran into the angils prison and freed the angil. The man fell off and was helpless. The beast knew the man was infront of him. He sniffed him out. Graved his ax and raised it. The man was to weak to dodge this one and soon approched death. This is when the angil wrapped its whip around the ax and pulled the monitor down. The and then summond for his sword and flew on the monitors chest. The beast was grappeld down by the angils whip. The man saw the angils merciless attack. The angil raised the sword and violently stabbed the beast through his mouth killing the beast painfuly and slowly. As the beast slowy died the angil stood up and apporched the man.
I am the arch angil Damion, i was sent into this cave to investigate the evil that threaten the piece. I was soon descoverd and over came by thousands of demons. I was captured and the darkness made me weak. I was able to find out that trees of destruction where being planted. The planter is unkown But these trees grow quikly with the hatred in mens hearts. What it does is poisen the land and poisens the mens mind into beliveing that evil is the path to true power. WHile some men join evil the ones who are not effected by this will suffer the trees doing.
The man was confused and asked the angil, if this is happening on earth why are angils helping. The angil explained how seeds of destruction where being planted into heavens as well and the ballance of heaven and hell where distorted. The battle did not only belong to humans but pulled in the heavens. Damnion explaind how angils will be fighting demons along side of the men. The man soon relized that The world was not safe and the heavens where as dangerous as his home. Damion took the man deeper into the cave where he would have to destroy the tree of destroction. Damion helped the man by giving him a new skill, torched edge, which aided him on chopping down the TOD(tree of destruction) Damion entrusted that the man would cut down the TOD and flew off to inform the heavens that earth has been affected the same. The man cut down the tree. The tree cried of shreeks and soon the roots of the tree burned to asshes. The cave lost all signs of organic roots which thrived on the walls. The tree was destroyed and the essence fadded. The man and the kid submerged out of the cave and brushed himself off. He found that the radius spread to the village and the grass was no longer green but red of blood. The village was destroyed and the boy was afraird. The demons roamed the land freely as man would. These demons looked a lot like the boys that cried for help and so where the men. The kid ran to the boys. The man tried to stop him but the demon boys tore him apart and killed the kid. The man did not want to kill the evil people of the village. He tought only of finding out what happend to cain. He ran to the dock and jumped in a boat and sailed off before the demons could reach him. As the man drifted of to sea he swore to help the angils bring balance between order and choas,
