Krocus was leading an adventure party through some ruins in the deepest parts of the old Bael Turath capital area. Crossing a chamber in which a ritual had been started but never finished, she inadvertently completed the ritual and set off a huge explosion. The gout of Primordial energy killed every member of the adventuring group she was with except her.

She didn’t know it, but this chamber was to be used by cultists of the Primordials to usher in a host of the chaotic progenitors of existence and restart the Dawn War. When she crossed the center of the chamber she triggered the final step of the ritual the cultists had started untold years ago.

But something happened that the cultists didn’t plan on. They planned on a regular human completing the ritual and becoming the living gate to the Elemental Chaos (who knows why they never finished their ritual). But Krocus is a Tiefling and, unknown to her until now, the indelible mark of the Devils is particularly strong on her.

Krocus has been thrust into a front-line position in the continued saga of the Dawn War. With both sides, the Primordials and the Gods (by extension of the Devils) trying to use her as their Proxy in the material plane. Both sides are vying for control and she now finds herself quite literally fighting for her soul.

What will happen? Will she succumb to the forces thrust upon her? Which side will gain final control? How will each faction try to entice her to choose their side? Perhaps she’ll have the strength to use the changes made to her for her own agenda. Only time will tell…
