Tears of Destruction
The “immortal armies” is the collective term for the angels, celestials, demons and devils that are the rank and file soldiers, servants and messengers of the gods.
Their ability to interact with the mortal world is decided every ten years by a vote during the Crucible of the Gods. For as long as mortals remember, there has been no interaction with the immortals….no summoning, no dream messages, no portals to the abyss, no demons rampaging across the landscape.
During the year 8,621 a Cruicible of the Gods was called when some of the gods returned. It was during this crucible that a vote was cast and the decision was made to release the immortal armies and once again allow them to interact with the mortal realm.
