With Calamity attempting to begin the Third Corruption, the Great Rift threatening, the return of the Paragons, and Parallax skewing time and space around him, an alternate reality has woven into Newerth as we know it. In this reality, Maliken’s first love Andraste did not die giving birth to Jeraziah. As a result, Maliken never fell under the spell of the shapeshifter Sylvia and his mind remained untouched by the madness that drove him to begin the Second Corruption. But the Second Corruption happened regardless, caused by Sylvia's daughter Ophelia, who would take any measure to wipe Man off the face of Newerth. Emperor Maliken will march from Adkarna in full regalia to rally the Legion against this wicked girl and her bestial daemons!
