Kings of War - Background

 

Ages have past since the Cataclysm and the complacency of time has set in.  A shadow has once again fallen across the land.  Rumors abound of strange creatures prowling the night.  War comes ever more frequently and a deep-rooted unease holds the hearts of men in its grip.  The alliance between the major political factions, tenuous in the best of times, has grown strained to the point of breaking.  Brother has turned against brother and the great houses of the Kohan has erupted into civil war.

The Shadow is rising and a new evil is spreading its wings.  Only the Kohan remember the terror unleashed by Ahriman many millennia past.

You command the Kohan. A race of immortal warlords, incapable of being killed, yet subject to a death of memory. Their nature is both blessing and bane. They need not fear death, yet cannot remember war's hard lessons and thus, will never know peace. It is the mortal races that suffer, as pawns in the Kohan's eternal game. Alliances are forged and broken, empires rise and fall; generations are born and die.

As brothers bleed on each other's blades, an ancient force, timeless in its malevolence and tireless in its patience, watches silently, knowing its hour is nigh. The Shadow is rising and a new evil is spreading its nefarious wings. Who will stand against the Shadow in this time of darkness?
