Two decades have passed since the demonic denizens, Diablo, Mephisto, and Baal, wandered the world of Sanctuary in a vicious rampage to shackle humanity into unholy slavery. Yet for those who battled the Prime Evils directly, the memory fades slowly and the wounds of the soul still burn.
When Deckard Cain returns to the ruins of Tristram’s Cathedral seeking clues to new stirrings of evil, a comet from the heavens strikes the very ground where Diablo once entered the world. The comet carries a dark omen in its fiery being and it calls the heroes of Sanctuary to defend the mortal world against the rising powers of the Burning Hells – and even the failing luminaries of the High Heavens itself.
Centuries ago, when men were foolish and practiced the demonic magics, it was common to invoke lesser demons and subdue them in order to gain their power.Fooling the little stature of those sorcerers, The Lord of Terror spawned from the very bowels of the skulking evils who awakens only once every thousand years to feed off the spawn of its own bile and pus. Lord of Terror,the hulking, tenacious turpitude with prodigious vendure is an earth demon that dwells deep within the network of subterranean caverns of the Burning Hells.
So Mortals! I am abominable, prodigal, tainted, The Frozen Terror and The Handmaiden of Annihilation and I like to snap the neck of my prey with a single strike, dragging it off to consume for next meal.
