It had been known for centuries, the natural order of the universe: that all beings were to pay homage to the absolute rulers of the entire cosmos, The Dragons. Their power unmatched by a thousand burning stars, their lore containing the entirety of time and before, The Dragons fulfilled lifespans so long that entire galaxies formed from burning embers and were consumed by novas, without their even aging. These were the grand creatures of all being, perfectly sculpted and insurmountable in conflict. The sheer radiance and wonder of The Dragons inspired untold amounts of jealousy. In time though, vain species would arise without the proper knowledge and respect for the might of The Dragons, and attempts were made over and over by foolish civilizations to usurp The Dragons’ power, but like waves crashing upon the rocky cliffs of mountains, attempts were pitifully inept. Through the millennia, hatred for the dragons grew. Jealousy bubbled to a raging torrent, and entire existences were demolished in hopes of scavenging power. Elder gods were consumed, blackest rituals were performed and unfathomable experiments were undergone in a quest to break the strength of The Dragons. Finally, the impossible has been realized: an unknown civilization has appeared, undetectable and unmerciful. No attempt at communication is possible. “Creatures” is not the proper word for them; they are nothing but hatred mechanized, raging monoliths with no other purpose than to bring about the absolute ruin of The Dragons. Their initial attacks were successful, and many Dragons that were present at the birth of reality perished. Four of the most powerful Dragons still remain, and under your direction they must obliterate the enemy, not just from their home world of Dragonia, but from all existence.
