!!Story
One otherwise uneventful night, a deafening crack resounded across the
land, and the earth itself shuddered. The next day, wild rumors started
spreading, of an undersea mountain surfacing. It was an unnatural,
crystalline mountain, brilliant as the morning sun. It was also, a
mountain split asunder. An enormous crack runs along its side, and leads
into its depths. Speculation as to what may lie within has gone rife.

At the back of taverns, and the quiet alleyways, old story has resurfaced.
A myth, of an ancient struggle between the Elder Gods and Demon Lords,
when Andolor first formed. It speaks of an attempt by the Demons to invade
this plane. The Demon King created a cataclysmic rift through which wild
hordes of demons poured forth. The Elder Gods moved swiftly however,
responding in force. However, the magics in the rift were too different,
and powerful. The Gods knew not how to undo it. After much deliberation,
it was decided that the portal would be sealed beneath a mountain, and the
God Terra would bide there, holding any new forays at bay.

Few took the story seriously, but some remember the great Cataclysm, when
the Demon Lord Valkur came forth with his army. It took the combined
armies of Men to weaken him, and banish his physical manifestation. The
heroes were lauded for their courage and bravery, and the land rejoiced.
Yet the doomsayers whispered, in the back of taverns and inn: "It took our
combined powers and efforts to weaken him. But what if Valkur was but a
scout?"

Sceptical adventurers are already heading towards the mountain to plunder
it for rare minerals from the sea, ignoring the warnings. Will you do
likewise?


!!Goals
Aeons ago, when Andolor first formed, demons came to conquer the land. A great
rift was formed between the demon plane and this world, from which hordes of
demons came forth. The Elder Gods moved quickly though, and after a long
struggle finally managed to repel their forces. The Gods were however unable
to understand the magics in the rift. Powerless to close it, they sealed it
beneath a mountain instead.

Academics have pieced together this old, largely forgotten story from fragments
told by old storytellers. They suspect a link with a crystal mountain that has
strangely emerged from the sea. A mountain rent in two by a massive crack.
Rumours are spreading that the demons have decided to try once again, and a
call has been put out for heroes to brave its depths.

But who would dare face a Demon army?
