On the summer solstice an earthquake shook the entire world of Gurutama. People across the world suffered terrible nightmares and saw horrifying prophetic visions. The volcanic peak at the heart of the Red Mountains came alive belching dark smoke into the heavens. The leaders of the scattered Human communities gathered to pay homage to what had come. They crept through hollowed out caverns to the core of the volcano. There they watched in terrified silence as an impossible being arose from the writhing magma. These humbled men witnessed the world-birth of the Soul Drinker, Navillus the Demon God, The Black Prince of Gorgoth, the whirling realm of malice, chaos, and unkempt cruelty.
In the blackness beneath the shuddering mountain he spoke to them. He offered them dark secrets of power and control over all the mortal realm… for a price. All but one of the Human chieftains swore themselves to the Black Prince. The barbarian king, Bwolark Bwolo, the sovereign of the Skull-Dog clan, turned his back on the Soul Drinker, proclaiming that the Skull-Dogs honored no being above the legacy of their fathers and their fathers’ fathers.
