"The World of Light is doomed, and the Gods of Light shall perish with it, and the Children of Light shall be utterly consumed in their fall. Before Light there was Darkness, before Order there was Chaos. Light and Order are fragile abnormalities in the natural state of the Cosmos. They cannot long endure"...
Out of the blackness of an almost-forgotten past, a cult of ancient evil has come to life again, a daring outlaw its prophet on this earth. Thousands of converts are drawn to his Dark Crusade; as the chaotic mob of religious fanatics washes over the civilized world, the old orders are destroyed and a hierarchy of anarchy takes over.
