Lord Katalkus has claimed to be the first sect elf. It may be true. He once studied with the Atlantean sorcerers, but became dissatisfied with them due to their aversion to necromantic magic. Eventually, he rebelled against the Atlantean mages and left with a group of death magic sorcerers who gathered to form the Dark Crusade.
These sorcerers became the vampires that run the city-state of Necropolis and Katalkus was supreme among them. But for reasons unknown, Katalkus began to distance himself from the others, pursuing studies of ancient origin, immersing himself in prophecies and tales of forgotten millennia. One day, he simply abdicated his throne and disappeared from the Necropolis with no explanation.
For years, there was no word of Katalkus and most finally decided he had attempted a sorcery too great for even him and had been destroyed in the process.
But then, rumors of a mysterious cult began to surface. This cult dedicated itself to nothing less than the destruction of the world as we know it and its disparate members began gathering information, books and scrolls from the most obscure places in order to study ancient lore known as the “Landshatter Prophecies”.
Very few took the cult seriously, but when it was found that a self-styled “Lord” Katalkus was leading the group, the kingdoms of the Land trembled, for when Katalkus decides to do something, he invariably accomplishes it. No one knows why Katalkus would want to destroy the Land and everything within it, but if his eyes are set on that goal, then it is up to the rest of the Land to find out how to stop it.
