'Then the great Daemon did laugh most cruelly, scorning the accusations of the Most Holy Paladin. "What is this?" he cackled. "A puny mortal has come to join me in eternal suffering! Well mortal, come forward, and receive your destiny." The Most Holy merely shook his head, shaking off the Daemon's Blandishments. Rushing forward, the Most Holy strode onward, and sealed the Daemon in eternal battle.'- The Book of Santos, Chapter XII, Paragraph IX
Descent into Hell
The arch-Daemon, Malkeus, has fallen from his eternal throne. Against all odds, a group of paladins cast him down into the deepest pits of hell, never to return. In his place, there is a significant power hole. The Seven Great Daemons are fighting over his spot. Now is the time for enterprising demons and their subjects to advance themselves. It will be a brutal power struggle, requiring much cunning, strength, and audacity. Go forth, and take your destiny.
The Universe, as it is known. Is made up of one galaxy, containing one thousand solar systems. The number of planets vary from system to system, but all contain at least one life giving world, though not neccesarily oxygen breathing life. Each world, in turn, varies greatly from the other. From ocean planets to barren wastelands, life manages to find a way to thrive.
The Etheral, on the other hand, is entirely chaotic. Unlike the orderly Universe, nothing remains constant in the vast plains of non-existance. The only things that have thus far escaped erosion and recreation are the Two Thrones. These thrones, made before the beginning of time, are the seats of the Lord and the Nemesis. Otherwise, they are known as the Arch-Daemon and the King of the Gods.
The Gods, though considered sacred by most of the sentient populations, are largely uninterested in the mortal worlds. They spend their time lounging in chairs, simply watching the Universe and making sure it doesn't collapse. The only times they interfere are when the Daemons encroach on the minds of mortals. There is the Arch-God, then the various others beneath him.
The Daemons, in opposition to the Gods, love to meddle with mortal affairs. Taking all forms and sizes, these beings symbolize all that is wrong with the universe. Though it is often hushed up and considered sacrilege, the Daemons are the true creators of sentience. Suprisingly, the heiarchy of Daemons is considerably more orderly than that of the Gods. First comes the Arch-Daemon, then the Seven Kings, followed by the fourty-nine lords, and finally the masses of everyday Daemons.
Now, with the Arch-Daemon gone, it is the time for action. The lowest ranking seek to rise up, constantly in competition. There is no set Daemon for a particular cause. There are infact two-thousand, seven hundred, and four Daemons of Anger alone.
