The Histories of Eulya
The last ruler of Antarnia, legends say that for this hedonistic ruler no pleasure was off limits. Eventually he found that no flesh could satisfy him, that food – no matter how taboo and exotic – could not sate him, and no drugs – mundane or magical – could faze him. He began to go mad.
It is said that on a night blacker than any other, before or since, Suma-ilk murdered his entire family and court – his wives, children, and friends. It is said that he bathed in pools of their blood, drank their gore and danced among their remains. It is said that he made a dark deal with some Great Evil that night, and that is how he was twisted into a shadow of a man – the first Vampire.
Using his dark gifts, Suma-ilk began to tranform his kingdom. He decreed that only Vampyre would rule – men were at best slaves and at worst cattle to feed upon. Needless to say, despite the decadance of the Empire as a whole these proclomations were not welcome.
And so Antarnia was shattered and ruined. What had taken thousands of years to build crumbled away in less than a hundred. Wheather through war, or poverty, or ill-fortune not a single of the ancient provinces was left standing.
The vile Suma-Ilk still lives, and has made great progess towards his dream of a world ruled by darkness – he and his Vampyre nobles have built their kingdom Magova into a powerful force, and now set their sites on new prey: Hibanthia.
