Long ago, the land was threatened by a formidable evil sorcerer named Zargon. Originally, Zargon was the ambitious apprentice of Mentor, the wise guardian of Loretome. Mentor recognized Zargon’s potential and cautioned patience, warning of the dangers inherent in the pursuit of great power. Yet, Zargon, consumed by impatience and a hunger for might, disregarded these warnings. Each night, he secretly delved into Mentor’s spell books, absorbing the arcane knowledge within.

Zargon’s lust for power led him to the dark arts of Dread, ancient and malevolent forces that promised unimaginable strength at a terrible cost. Upon mastering these forbidden secrets, Zargon fled from Mentor, his soul corrupted by the malevolent powers he had embraced. Mentor pursued Zargon, but upon finding him, discovered that his former apprentice had transformed. Zargon had become a creature of pure malevolence, wielding dark magic with a ruthless efficiency.

A fierce battle ensued between Mentor and Zargon, spanning days and testing the limits of their magical prowess. Ultimately, Zargon, bolstered by powerful allies, managed to escape to the Northern Dread Wastes. There, he nursed his wounds and honed his dark powers, intent on overthrowing the Realm and subjugating it to his will.

In the ensuing years, Zargon raised legions of foul creatures under his Black Banner. Orcs, goblins, and other sinister beings flocked to his cause, driven by his promise of dominion and fear of his wrath. The land was plunged into despair as Zargon’s forces laid waste to everything in their path. Hope seemed lost until Rogar, a mighty warrior prince from the Borderlands, emerged as a beacon of resistance. Alongside his companions—a fearless dwarven warrior named Durgin, an elven fighter-mage called Ladril, and the wizard Telor—Rogar waged a relentless campaign against Zargon’s forces.

Though Rogar’s army triumphed in a great battle, driving back the forces of Dread, the victory was incomplete. Zargon and his general eluded capture, retreating beyond the Sea of Talons to plot their vengeance. In the shadows, Zargon continued to amass power, biding his time and waiting for the moment to strike anew.

In the present day, Zargon’s influence stirs once more, and his minions threaten the land. The Realm once again calls for heroes to rise and confront the darkness. The challenge is daunting, for Zargon’s magic is potent, and his legions are vast. His ultimate goal remains unchanged: to subjugate the world under his tyrannical rule, using his mastery of dark magic to crush all who stand against him.

Now, as the forces of Dread gather strength, new heroes must emerge to confront Zargon. They must navigate a treacherous path, completing perilous quests and growing in strength and wisdom to stand a chance against the malevolent sorcerer. Mentor, unable to directly intervene, offers his guidance and knowledge through Loretome, hoping to aid these new champions in their fight against Zargon’s impending tyranny. The fate of the Realm hangs in the balance, awaiting the deeds of brave adventurers ready to challenge the darkness.
