The dishorable, 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 t-so-valiant Sir Talarius, Knight Rampant of Tiern and has humiliated and demoralized the army kwn as the Rod of Tiern, that helped Talarius cheat in battle with Tom. Unfortunately, to do so, he had had to hack the mana streams between the god Tiern and his High Priests, and w his buddies are telling him that Tiern is going to send a Host to investigate this unprecedented event. Oh, and the fact that he reversed a Holy Artifact of Tiern has t gone unticed either. The folks upstairs are t pleased. His actions have completely disrupted the plans of t only the Rod of Tiern, 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 w 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?
