As the world falls into darkness, creatures of unknown horrors invade our lands. As if they had all been called to rise at the same time, they strike the world of man from every side, taking thousands of lives each day on their march to conquer everything. Their will to rule is only exceeded by their desire to spread terror and inflict cruelty upon those they deem unworthy and powerless. Within days, the dark hordes damn many armies, slaughtering everyone they encounter whether they oppose them or not. One by one, the kingdoms of man fall to the never-ending spawn of evil that smites the lands. Soon, evil has overrun all but one kingdom of man and must now face them and each other in their continued effort to rule the world.
