Kingdoms of Hate
The Races Unite
The City of Spes (south of Caelum) could see the fires and hear the tormented screams of the damned city. The High Priest had died in Caelum and the new leader of the city was the Governor of the city, George Lightmaster. George immediately called an audience with Thoven Dawnstrider. Offering the chance for peace to unite against the demon lord. Thoven declined stating that after he killed the demon he would kill the rest of the Humans.
The Humans locked themselves behind Spes’ high walls and began reinforcing gates and doing everything possible to survive the demon siege that was sure to come. The Elves began sending troops to fight the demons head on. The Elves where never successful. The demons began to push the Elves back until both Humans and Elves where trapped behind their borders. It had seemed as if the Demons where going to slay every living creature.
In a desperate attempt to save his city George prayed to Lux a final time asking for her help. She showed herself and told George that she would bring an army in 3 days.
When the gate to Spes broke on the third day the Humans had truly believed that these where their final moments. Then the goddess Lux showed herself on the battle field pointed into the sky and a great gate opened. 15 Thri-Kreen airships poured through the gates. The Fields in front of Spes’ gates lit up and both Damned ones and demons became fine red mists on the battle. The front lines where cleared.
On these airships where troops sent by the Dwarves, Thri-kreen, Goblins, and Drowdren. The battle quickly turned. The airships cleared a path to the Elven forests. Thoven swallowed his pride and accepted George’s offer and together the races battled the demons all the way back to the ruins of Caelum.
