The conflict between the Red War Paladin Captain and Rancor the Razer was nearing its finale. The prolonged war had seen the Paladin Captain’s forces dwindle to a shadow of their former glory and numbers, while Rancor seemed to draw from an endless source of troops and power. At last, the Captain, nearly bereft of allies, found himself surrounded on all sides by Rancor and his forces, who were about to deal their final blow. Suddenly, the Paladin heard a voice speaking directly to his mind. It was a voice so alien as to be terrifying in its strangeness. It carried an unnatural intelligence and foreignness, as if it belonged to a being that had had lived long enough to see the birth and death of stars, but was only speaking in the language of man for the first time. In otherworldly tones bleeding with disdain and loathing, it spoke its name to the Paladin: Shagor-Ulna. It revealed to him that Rancor had sold his soul to a being from the underworld known as Hastireth. This demon was the bottomless well from which Rancor drew his immense strength and influence. It promised the Captain power from the other planes, beyond the wildest dreams of man. The power to defeat Rancor, the pawn of Hastireth, Shagor-Ulna’s eternal enemy. All it would cost him was his sanity. Now, both factions overflow with terrifying energy as the two otherworldly beings, unable to leave their home planes, bend the will of thousands to fight as pawns in their stead! Now begins the final showdown between Rancor the Razer and the Red War Paladins, between malice and madness! Details Season 5 begins on August 10th, 2015 and lasts for 4 weeks.
