The year, unknown...the time, uncertain...the place, earth... Ten years ago, based on the new age calander, the Dark Wars came to an end. They had been occuring for five long years before that, blood shed and violence painting the world. Demons had come, sent by whoever their commander may be, to destroy the human race. They had been tactical. First destroying power hubs, computer technologys, weapons and nuclear houseing...we were defensless without it. Atleast, thats what people thought as there world leaders were murdered and chaos began to rule. The demons swept across the planet, obliterating towns, killing, the human race was barely hanging on. Then it happened. Proud believers from every faith came together to save the world. They began to fight, to drive hell's spawn back, they killed the demons. Converts flocked to the group, unsure what exactly they had to do to be followers but wanting to be saved from the chaos. The men who had come together had not intended to start a church, not intended a new world order, but as things progressed and the power of the union grew the New Age Church of the Holy was formed. That marked the end of the Dark Wars. Technology is gone, humans have survived, demons still wander and infest certain areas, and the church, as most call it, rules supreme. During the ten years since the war, coruption has filled the ranks of the church. The men who had originally come together for the greater good have vanished, and those in their place are ruthless for power. They control the world now, and they want to control everyone but with any new order comes conflict. Many refuse to convert still, even if most have. As these "heretics" "disappear" it becomes clear that the church has something to do with it. Scare tactics are being employed to maintain their following, and chruch officials are placed in every town and city within their control. That is where we stand now. Thankfully, not every city can be controled, not every man a convert, so perhaps there is hope in the end for the corrupted and battered earth...
