The tale I am about to tell you is simply the final chapter. The final chapter of a much, much longer story... that began over 3,000 years ago.
There is a lonely, remote island in the North. 3,000 years ago, they mages who resided there were slowly dying. The harsh wintry climate allowed neither cattle or steed to survive. Thus, each day for the mages was a constant struggle against the cruel snow. The land was barren and unfarmable - there was nothing to hunt. Thus, slowly but surely, the mages died one by one in the frigid cold. The greatest evokers among the mages sought to end the misery that plagued their people. Thus, they banded together and conducted a ritual atop the highest mountain peak. By the ritual's end, they had created a new type of lifeform: a new species was born.
Little did they know that their own creation would eventually doom them to an even worse fate then before. The Proggs, when their population grew large enough, rallied and enslaved their masters. The Proggs forced them to endure what they had to when they were under the mage's thrall.
3,000 years have past. And now, the invasion of Luosh... has begun.
6 heroes and the Progg runt who had rallied them step outside of the hall at the dead of night. These 6 heroes were...

A massive chariot stands before them, capable of fitting a dozen men - yet, oddly, only one person steps out. The moon hangs over them, the light emitting from it lighting up the scene. The horses neigh and whinny, afraid of going back to Luosh.

QM Note: Please confirm you are ready to play within 24 hours. Did I get the stats right? Also, B&P, your picture seems broken.
