It has been 10 years since AQW heroes first battled through the Dage vs Nulgath war. The Master of the Underworld story tells a tale in 3 parts:
Part 1 in /FiendPast
The first chapter -- released in January to celebrate Nulgath's birthday -- was set in the distant past, as Nulgath reigned unchallenged. Your hero battles as Nulgath's Commandant. Your task? To observe Dage the Lich, a promising new addition to your Master's Nation... and assess his loyalty. (*insert ominous foreshadowing music here*)
Part 2 in /DageRecruit
The second chapter released last week as we celebrated Dage's birthday, and was also set in the past. Your hero plays AS Dage the Evil. Your goal? To recruit powerful allies, take out potential enemies, and gear up for war against your former master, Nulgath.
Part 3 in /DarkWar
The drumbeats of war sound once again! This weekend, we jump to the present day in the final chapter of the Master of the Underworld story. It's been ten years since the last all-out battle, and there is NO END in sight to the eternal conflict between these two sides. Play as your hero as you choose a side and fight to prove your allegiance and collect the dark, deadly rewards.
If you have been unfortunate to wander Nulgath's malevolent realm and quested for his powerful rewards, then you know exactly what he is. If you have journeyed to Shadowfall and navigated the halls of Gravelyn's fortress to join the Undead Legion, you've met Dage the Evil.
But that does not tell you who they ARE. Read on to learn more about the diabolical leaders you've bound yourselves to... and if you haven't yet, then now is the perfect time to decide which has your loyalty!
Dage the Evil
Dark Lord of the Undead Legion
Once a power-mad necromancer, Dage signed Nulgath's contracts and rode the fast lane to even more strength. Eventually the time came for Dage, like so many others before him, to fulfill his contract and pay Nulgath for his power, but he had used his new knowledge to bind a portion of his soul to an armor of his own construction.
This remnant lives on and retains all the knowledge and strength of his previous life. Now Dage the Evil rivals Nulgath himself in evil power.
Through the ages, Nulgath has taken many forms and been known by many names. Recently however, it was revealed that each of his previous forms were merely larval stages of the diabolic evolution into his current, malevolent form.
Now Nulgath serves no master, only his own ceaseless lust for power and hunger for the souls he captures through his contracts. Since Dage the Evil's rise to power, it remains to be seen which of these creatures is truly the greatest evil.
