A shadow has fallen within the Plane of Strife. An ancient evil, the Dharkwave horde connected with Sheol, is rumored to have arisen all over again. The only thing that stands between your peaceful races of Strife plus the threat of deadly invasion can be a Rune of Darkstone, the only key which could open the portal to the actual underworld of Sheol. For years this mystical item, a fragment with the ancient Dark Obelisk, has been kept from the Keepers of the Code, the sacred guardians with the Planes of Strife. But the cryptic rune went missing. And some fear the actual worst.
In preparation of a Dharkwave invasion, the Keepers with the Code have built an World in Strife, with the hope which the fabled Army of Light could be trained there. Some even say the Golden Child of prophecy has appeared with the arena, riding his mystical Zidek monster.
Now, the mightiest heroes from your 5 planes are gathering together to manage this new dread. They have fallen to Strife from their house Planes of Gael, Vorbis, Nestra, Tempra and Lyrie to fight in the arena, to prove their worth in order to represent their people in the actual coming battle. Some will go up. Some will fall. And all is going to be pushed to the limits of these strength and courage.
