Tears of Destruction
The Tieflings Proclamation
Dear former ruler,
As you are no doubt blissfully unaware, fifty years ago I, Barbatos Malphas began a war on you, your citizens, your realm and the entire world. This silent war has continued unabated through the past five decades and I am proud to say that so far little blood has been shed and even fewer lives have been lost. The time of my victory is now at hand though and it is time that every living being acknowledged that fact and accept me as their rightful ruler.
I fully expect the more dull-witted among you to not realise the peril that you face, or to assume that these are the words of a mad man. However I will tell you this. The longer that you deny and resist me, the more death and pain that you and your citizens will face. Those that swear oaths of fealty to me quickly will suffer the least.
As a demonstration of my unlimited power, my generosity and my benevolence as your new ruler, I will give to you a gift. One month from now I will return to you your gods, those that still live anyway. You will truly not understand the significance of this event until it has happened. However, once it has happened I will expect immediate obedience from you, my subjects. Resistance and denial will only bring pain and suffering. For the sake of the weak and innocent I ask that you do not bring this doom upon your former citizens.
Tributes and gifts are also accepted.
Barbatos Malphas, your Ruler and Nightbringer.
