First, she unmade the Blood Storm, turning Maelforge against his own just when victory over Telara seemed assured. Next, she inspired the escapes of her trapped brethren so that they might stand – and be slain – in turn. Now, she sets into motion a plan to remake the fabric of the planes and loose her armies on all who oppose her dominion.
Harnessing advanced Empyrean technology, the Storm Legion has built machines even the Blood Storm feared: automaton soldiers and mechanical monsters like the legendary Volan, whose tread crushes cities, whose beam weapons burn armies to dust.

Long before the Eth honed sourcestone-based magitech or Orphiel experimented with the warping of time, the Brevanes had mastered Empyrean power. Discovering elemental ley lines beneath Cape Jule, they developed magic to siphon the natural energies of the planes, giving rise to the most capable – and harmonious – technology in Telara.
