An Open Letter to the Cult of Verore
« on: February 23, 2016, 11:30:35 PM »
Hey there

I know you're going through some tough times at the moment, what with your citadel getting wrecked, Aleta getting turned into Vasir's personal hamster, and the whole struggle for power thing going on.

Add on the oppression of the Overseers of Solace and you gals seem to be slinging around fewer death spells than you used to in the good old days.

Now there's one thing I'd like to make absolutely clear: we're not going to let you kill us, or forget all of the time that you spent trying to wipe us off the map. Or forgive you for making the Exiles. Seriously, properly and safely dispose of magical waste next time.

But that doesn't mean that we here in the DoD don't sympathize with your plight. For once in your lives, you've found some problems that a death ray can't fix. Namely Paladins of the Flame Dawn. And your own greed and lust for power. And the fact that you no longer have control of all of those demons you summoned up from Torment. So while I'm contractually obligated to remind you that you're arrogant fools meddling with powers that you cannot control, as it so happens there's a different, more pressing group of hubristic idiots attempting to take over the multiverse.

As it is, I'm willing to extend an olive branch here (protected by dragon prayers so you don't instantly vaporize it) on the behalf of the Descendants of the Dragon. You're not nice people. But you're a puffy of a lot nicer than Aberion and his sycophantic hordes of mindless aggressors. You understand skill and subtlety, the art of cunning, how sometimes there's more to life than just throwing a billion charging units into the attack zone. To be blunt, I can respect you as opponents in a way that the Flame Dawn can never achieve in its current state.

So why don't you take a moment away from your squabbling, Candit and Rita, to throw a few death rays at those crazy red-and-gold-armored fanatics pouring through the rifts? We'll even give you some structural tips when it comes time to build your next citadel. When it comes down to it, I think there's a strong chance that, if not friends, we can at least become allies. Until the Dawn is dealt with, anyway.

Sincerely,
Benionin

Some of it comes from the cards themselves--Struggle for Power, for instance. The rest of it comes from (mostly older versions of) the campaign.

The closest thing I could get to you in the past was a summary of the lore that CthuluGirl provided a while ago, but unfortunately The Infinite-Network is down so it's no longer available.

However, be sure to check out the Lore and Fanfic sections of this forum, as there's some good stuff in there if you're interested in reading more.

War changes people. Friends become enemies. Enemies band together against worse enemies. In these troubled times, even the spiritually guiltless Descendants of the Dragons have allied themselves with the moralless sadistic Verore. May your Despair become your liberation.
