For centuries there had been only silence . . .
The gateway through worlds known as the Rift, the Black Door, remained still as glass; a pitch-black mirror that when gazed upon showed only the reflection of one’s soul, and the emptiness therein.
Throughout the silence the races soundly slept, dreaming of an age past -- a history of horror that slowly faded to legend, and slower yet into myth.
Then the Rift awoke . . . and their dreams turned to nightmares, nightmares into reality.
From its pulsating maw spewed the infinite, undead legion assembled from the farthest reaches of a universe in ruins. With only one world remaining in their conquest – one last flicker of life in an otherwise darkened universe -- the full might of the Dark Army descended.
An army of races must stand against it; hastily assembled, vastly outnumbered, and utterly unprepared for the evil that comes. Alone, the Guardians of the Gate will surely be swept away.
But they’re not alone. While the races slept, the gods planned. They created . . .
After the passing of ages the powers of their children, their Chosen, have come to fruition. Their godlings wield the Oneness, the very power that gave birth to the Black Door. Yet still it will not be enough . . . to defeat the Void it will never be enough.
Thus the gods risked everything. They created another; a new power – his gifts born of the Void itself. A boy not only capable of ending the Dark Army but the very world in which he lives -- along with all those he loves.
As the battle for the final world unfolds, the gods cannot help but wonder, would this be their final failure?
Would their savior grow to become the Destroyer?

Infinite Limits

Submitted: October 03, 2013


They conquered the universe and proclaimed themselves gods. The endless span of worlds was theirs to command. At the height of their power they realized they had but one foe left - death. They saw
it as a limit to their power, a gap they could not cross. They named it the Void and in their arrogance they even believed they could defeat it - though in order to do so they had to become one
with it.


And so the Plague was born. The universe conquered anew.


But there were other gods - those who accepted death and the natural order of things. They believed in evolution. For them, immortality was in the life of a child. It was the true path, paved by a
power higher than even they; to perpetually evolve for the better. An infinite universe with endless evolutionary possibilities.


The immortality of the Dead Gods faced off against the evolution of the Elders.


With His birth, the end begins.
