Apostles of Doom

Apostles of Doom Beta Signup is now available!   --We are in Alpha Reading Mode; that's why the forums seem quiet we are cloistered in our secret beta sanctuary.

Please read the Beta Demon FAQ in the Forum for details on the Beta Demon program and the link for the AoD Beta program.

Beta Demoning is not for everyone!  Beta Demons are sausage grinders and packers and they get to see the "guts" of the story.  For many people this can take away from pure reading and vicarious enjoyment of the story.  

The goal of the Beta Demon program is to make a better book.  Beta Demons are expected to contribute to the discussion and book making process.

We are the Nyjyr Ennead!

Bastet & Annubis 
Greetings Astlanians and Visitors!

I am Bastet and this is my lover Anup, we are members of the Nyjyr Ennead, a full service pantheon able to fulfill all your religious needs for the last several tens of millenia.

As you may be aware, this site was previously "managed" by the mortal wizard Lenamare and his associate Jehenna.  Unfortunately, they are currently indisposed, hiding behind powerful wards in the city of Freehold.  Cowering in fear of a measly thousand demons and a two armies. Therefore, we have benevolently chosen to control this site on their behalf.

Now, you may be asking yourselves, "Why, if the Nyjyr Ennead is a full service pantheon, have we not heard of you?"

This is a very good question!

The fault lies with a truly evil pantheon known as the Etonians.  In particular their God of War, Tiernon and his brother Torean; although their sisters were also complicit in their heinous acts of naked, brutal aggression.   You see, up until about 1200 years ago our people were living peacefully and in harmony on Natoor and Najaar when they were ruthlessly invaded by the Rod of Tiernon who used raw force; torture and the threat of death to convert our followers to their heathen practices.  Those that refused, and there were huge numbers that did, were slaughtered ruthlessly.  They then set about suppressing our religion in Astlan as well as the rest of localverse.

However, fear not!  We have a plan to reclaim our lands for our followers and eliminate the vile Etonians once and for all.  We shall be vindicated!  We swear by our own names!

The Heavenly Host

The Demons of Astlan: 

Volume II

 
The dishonorable, cheating Forces of Good have been defeated!

Tom Perkinje, the reluctant Greater Demon and recent transplant from Harding NJ to the Abyss has defeated and captured the not-so-valiant Sir Talarius, Knight Rampant of Tiernon and has humiliated and demoralized the army known  as the Rod of Tiernon, that helped Talarius cheat in battle with Tom. 


Unfortunately, to do so, he had had to hack the mana streams between the god Tiernon and his High Priests, and now his buddies are telling him that Tiernon is going to send a Host to investigate this unprecedented event.  Oh, and the fact that he reversed a Holy Artifact of Tiernon has not gone unnoticed either.  The folks upstairs are not pleased.


His actions have completely disrupted the plans of not only the Rod of Tiernon, but also the Sky Fleet of Oorstemoth who had thought to bring Tom to justice for illegally destroying the ship trying to obliterate Tom and his friends.  The two armies are now looking to unite and rescue Talarius and arrest (permanently) Tom.


Of course, there are also the three Arch Demons trying to steal a book that Lenamare, Tom’s Accursed Master, stole from Oorstemoth; and whose demon horde had been infesting the wizard city of Freehold.   


So Tom has managed to anger both the Forces of Good and the Forces of Evil.  However, that pales before his current problem, what exactly does one do with a hostage?
