STORYLINE FOR MACE---------------------------
------------------------------------------------------------------
Europe - A.D. 1300.

        For centuries an impenetrable darkness has shrouded Europe, Arabia, and
Asia, with countless victims succumbing to the ravenous hunger of unchecked
pestilence and war. In Asia, Khan's ruthless Golden Horde wages a war of terror
from the shores of Japan to Europe. In Arabia, the legendary Assassins' Guild
asserts a bid for power, toppling sultans and kings. Europe, once a promising
glimpse of humanity's potential, has become a well of despair under the
despotic rule of a handful of feudal lords.
        Many great kingdoms have been devastated, but a few have grown more
powerful. These comprise the Covenant of Seven - lords who have allied with
Asmodeus, a practitioner of the dark arts who wields the fabled Mace of Tanis.
The Mace is embued with necropotic energy, offering those who wield it a
tantalizing promise of ever-lasting life and unbridled power.
        With this power comes a terrible price: Asmodeus must feed off despair,
disease, and poverty. In limited doses, Asmodeus grants the Seven the power
they need and crave. In return, they expand their kingdoms with bloody battles
and torment their peasants. But Europe can no longer sustain Asmodeus' ravenous
appetite. He now reaches East into the Orient, to find new lords who yearn to
sample the dark powers.
         But there is rebellion. Each of the Seven, addicted to the corrupting
power of the Mace, dispatch their best warriors to kill Asmodeus and steal his
power. Leaders from the East sense Asmodeus' plottings and strive to destroy
him before it's too late. Heirs to kingdoms long since vanquished seek revenge
on Asmodeus and those who wield the dark energy.
       They are the fiercest fighters on Earth, and they all have one thing in
common. They each must possess the Mace.

AL' RASHID : The Master Assasin of the Desert Wind
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
-
-----------------------
BIOGRAPHY :
-----------------------

        Al' Rashid was destined to become a master in the arts of unseen death.
The son of Khalid, King of Assassins, he was raised in a towering
fortress high in the mountains of Northern Arabia.
       Al' Rashid has learned all 57 methods of wounding with a scimitar, knows
and has hand-prepared all 103 lethal poisons, and can kill a man silently at 
eighteen paces with the unerring toss of a dagger.
      By his eighteenth birthday, Al' Rashid was ready for initiation into the
Assassin's Guild. Instructed to murder the powerful Potentate of
Damascus, Al' Rashid made sure the job was complete by dispatching the
leader, his advisory staff, and 14 of their personal bodyguards, without
making noise enough to awaken the palace dogs.
         As a reward, Khalid presented him with a pair of ancient scimitars,
extremely light and razor sharp, rumored to have been forged magically
from the very winds of the Great Desert. These blades grant Al' Rashid
extreme speed, lightning reflexes, and the power to harness the forces
of the wind.
       Now Al' Rashid has been sent by the Sultan of Shiraz to bring back the
Mace of Tanis. He must overcome the legendary power of Asmodeus first,
which will test every skill of one of the most dangerous men on Earth.

Al' Rashid: Master Assassin hired by one of the Seven to bring back the
Mace of Tanis.

ENDING :
-----------------

        Feeling the power of the Mace course through his hands, Al'Rashid knows
his destiny lies not just in becoming the best assassin in the lands, but in
ruling his own kingdom.
        Al'Rashid turns on his father Khalid, murdering him coldly to claim the
title King of Assassins. He then chooses to usurp the vast holdings of the
Sultan of Shiraq, one of the Covenant of Seven whose kingdom had grown because
of the pact with Asmodeus.
        Killing Shiraq, Al'Rashid becomes Sultan of a vast empire. A cruel and
unjust ruler, he is hated by his people and he must resist constant attempts on
his life.
        He also takes a delicious pleasure in Namira, the former harem girl who
is the lost Princess of Tulwara, whose family was murdered by Khalid. Using the
power of the Mace, Al'Rashid hypnotizes Namira and she becomes his concubine
slave, living out her days dancing for him, humiliated by the perverted acts of
shame she must perform for her cruel master.

LORD DEIMOS : The Evil Warlord - Pure Evil Encased in Armor
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
----------------
------------------------
BIOGRAPHY :
------------------------
         A member of the original Covenant of Seven, Lord Deimos rules his
populace with an iron grip high atop his mountain fortress in his native
Bavaria, overlooking a vast tortured landscape known as the Great Wastelands.
        It is not known how old he is, but his trembling worshippers whisper in
hushed tones that he is has lived for hundreds of years already. No one
currently alive has seen his face, and few are allowed inside his dark castle,
which snow never touches. Further, it is told, his blood-red armor is made of
molten lava, hand-forged by the very demon himself.
        His people dare not rebel, and must fight in his ever-escalating
conflicts around the borders. It is as if he is driving his people to war
with an insatiable appetite, which grows greater with each victory. Deimos
drives his people hard, and many have perished. Far worse, however, is the
fate that befalls those who resist.
        Now Asmodeus has pitted the Seven against each other, but Deimos
doesn't want to deal with petty bickering with his fellow lords. He is
tired or playing second fiddle to a power darker than his own. He wants
all the power for himself. He wants Countess Taria by his side. He wants
Asmodeus' head on his wall. And the Mace in his hand.

Lord Deimos: Hundreds of years old, Deimos rules his people with an iron
fist. Member of the Covenant of Seven, he seeks to usurp power to expand
his kingdom.

        Lord Deimos drinks the blood of the vanquished Asmodeus, as he lifts
the Mace of Tanis.  Now, with unbridled evil power coursing through his
veins, Deimos can dominate the world.
        He goes on the vanquish the rest of the Covenant of Seven, destroying
them one by one and enslaving their populaces. Under his hellish rule, Europe
and Arabia are unified, but under a tortured, despotic rule. Seemingly 
immortal, Deimos rules for centuries. Europe never recovers from the Dark 
Ages that have withered its people and stunted its growth.

THE EXECUTIONER : The Freelance Tourturer
---------------------------------------------------------------------
------------------------
BIOGRAPHY :
------------------------

       The man known only as The Executioner lives for torture. Thriving off
the pain and misery he inflicts, he has carved a successful empire from
catering to the torture needs of the Covenant of Seven. Employing every
pain-inflicting device known to humankind, The Executioner has created a vast
and well-stocked dungeon located on his legendary island fortress of El
Katraz. None living except a few loyal to the Executioner know the whereabouts
of the island.
        Some say The Executioner's childhood was filled with pain and misery.
None will know for sure, for all traces of his early life have been erased. It
is rumored, though, that the great axe he wields is same demonic blade that
sliced through the Crusaders' ranks during the attacks on Jerusalem
centuries ago.
        The Executioner likes to play a certain game with his prisoners. At
sunrise, he will let a prisoner loose, offering them freedom if they can find a
means of escape off the island by the following sunset. The Executioner then
hunts them down and brings them back to his dungeon for an especially painful
death. No prisoners have ever escaped; many throw themselves to the waiting
sharks rather than face being recaptured and flayed alive.
        Now, war has broken out between the Seven and Asmodeus. Seeing an
opportunity to control a vest empire himself, The Executioner puts his
considerable skills to test in killing Asmodeus and gaining control of the
Mace.

The Executioner: Freelance torturer who seeks the ultimate power for
himself.

       It has been said that when The Executioner defeated Asmodeus, wails of
misery could be heard across all the continents. For all living creatures knew
that their way of life, as bad as it may have been, was about to get worse. In
its place was a world brimming with misery and indescribable pain; a world
where every man, woman, and child knew the sting of the barbed lash, the
sharp report of joints snapping on the rack, and the horrible, shapeless
pain of the iron maiden.
        The Executioner will rule for centuries in what will be known as "The
Age of Torment." Welcome to the new hell.

KOYASHA : Master of 100 ways of silent death
----------------------------------------------------------------------
------------------------
BIOGRAPHY :
------------------------
      Koyasha is a young ninja, but one who has fierce determination to test
her skills as ninja. She has mastered a hundred different ways of killing
without leaving a trace, but she cares little for the riches that could await
her. She must prove herself to be the best, or die trying.
        She has heard of a legendary assassin to the West, named Al'Rashid, who
is rumored to have killed hundreds of men but has never made a mistake.
Killing him would truly be a test of skill. She has also heard that there is
an evil darkness invading her land, from a mysterious being called Asmodeus
somewhere in Europe. Al'Rashid can wait; this Asmodeus sounds like a good test
of her skills.  She knows that it may also mean her death...

Koyasha: Testing her skills as a master of the art of ninjitsu, she
seeks to kill Asmodeus.

        By killing Asmodeus, Koyasha has shown that she is the most-skilled
ninja who has ever lived. Now, by owning the Mace of Tanis, she can wield
ultimate power.
        But Koyasha cares little about power. For her the Mace is merely a
conquest, a trophy of her skills as a warrior. She believes that the destiny of
humanity lies with the natural order - the ability of rulers to hold power on
the own, not bolstered by unnatural energies.
        Her ultimate conquest behind her, Koyasha builds a monastery high in
the Japanese mountains, seeking to attain spiritual perfection.

MORDOS KULL : The Famous Mercenary
-----------------------------------------------------------------
-------------------------
BIOGRAPHY :
-------------------------
        A battle-scarred veteran of countless wars, Kull's weapon is for sale
to the highest bidder. An orphan with an unknown family history, Kull was
raised by gypsy peasants in the rugged Italian foothills. He learned to fight
by experience, throwing off marauding brigands. He found he fought most
effectively with the morning star, a devastating weapon that causes
massive internal injuries.
        In his late teens, the Covenant of Seven outlawed gypsies and hired
mercenaries to purge them throughout the land. One cold November night, a group
of mercenaries ambushed and killed his gypsy clan. Seeing that he was a skilled
warrior, the mercenaries offered to spare Kull's life if he joined them.
Impressed with the quality of their armor and weapons, he agreed, lured by the
prospect of earning real money.
        Kull honed his skills and became one of the most savage mercenaries in
Europe. Over the years, though, all the other members of the mercenary group
that found him have met with untimely or accidental deaths. Kull is the only
survivor.
        Now alone in the world, his weapon is for sale to the highest bidder.
He has now been hired by one of the Seven to kill Asmodeus and bring back
the Mace of Tanis.
        Is he in it for the money, or will he finally decide that his honor has
no price?

Mordos Kull: Legendary mercenary. After his family and then his foster
family were killed before him, Kull has spent his orphaned youth
thinking of nothing but revenge against the Seven.

        Mordos has finally achieved his goal - destroying Asmodeus and the
power structure that has ravaged the land for centuries.  His parents were
killed by Sir Dregan, one of the Covenant of Seven, when Kull was just a boy.
He was taken in by a gypsy clan, who were then killed by Deimos' mercenaries.
        Hating the Seven and all they stood for, Kull realized the only way he
could beat them was from the inside, gaining their trust as a mercenary until
he could bring them down one by one.
        Kull will now wield the Mace with wisdom, to rebuild the land to its
former glory, and cast down the Seven and their despotic rule. In the hands of
this wise and virtuous king, the Mace will be a powerful tool for good. Heroes
are indeed found in the most unlikely places.

NAMIRA :The Deadly Harem Girl
---------------------------------------------------
--------------------------
BIOGRAPHY :
--------------------------

        Kidnapped and sold into slavery as a child, Namira grew up in the harem
of a lesser sultan whose deviant appetite for pleasure was as twisted as his
hideous face. Forced to dance for the pleasure of fat and lecherous old men,
she hates the society in which she in nothing more than a slave.
        Namira has frequent flashbacks of childhood, hazy visions of living in
an opulent palace surrounded by rich trappings and courteous attendants.
Often, these dreams are followed by violent images of raging fire, flashing
swords, and strangers. Thinking it nothing more than dreams created by her
subconscious to prevent her from going mad, Namira gives the visions little
thought, until one day she overhears some harem girls speaking of a lost
princess.
        Sixteen years ago there was a terrible tragedy at the Royal Palace. A
band of assassins murdered the royal family, all except the young princess
Tulwara, who was rumored to have been smuggled out alive. If she was still
alive, she would be about the same age as Namira was now. Was there a
connection? Were the dreams real? Namira had to know.
        Namira secretly learned the art of fighting from a kind eunuch.
Combining a deadly, swift scimitar with a seductive style of fighting that
mesmerized her opponents, Namira became a lethal killing machine.
        During her escape from her master, Namira pierced his heart with her
scimitar. Before he died, she asked him who she truly was. The sultan muttered
only "Asmodeus knows" with his last breath.
        Knowing her true origins are somehow entwined with the mysterious
Asmodeus, she begins a quest to find him and recover her identity. If she can
bring down Asmodeus and wield the Mace of Tanis, she might be able to discover
the truth and regain her place on the throne, if only the visions weren't
delirium...

Namira: Harem girl and lost princess, Namira mastered the deadly art of
scimitar fighting from a court eunoch. She seeks revenge on Al' Rashid
and the Seven.

BIOGRAPHY  :
-------------------------

        Once he was a noble viking prince, ruling over a vast and beautiful
territory in the north. That was before the dark wolves came, roaming the
countryside by the hundreds, destroying villages and dragging away the children
of his people.
        Ragnar heard rumor of a large band of wolves in the forest of the East
who were raiding small villages. He and his men traveled there, but he
suddenly had a terrible premonition that it was all a ruse. He envisioned
that his village, Torsgard ,was being raided by scarlet-clad men, and his
family was being tortured.
        He quickly returned to Torsgard, but it was too late. It lay in smoking
ruins, its people dead. The bodies of his family lay half-eaten, their red
blood wasted upon the snow. At the outskirts of the forest he could see
the wolves.
Their red eyes burned with a savage intensity, a raw supernatural evil that
could only come from one source - Deimos.
        He was driven into a berserk fury. Ragnar Bloodaxe would avenge his
people, his family. He would destroy Deimos and Asmodeus - the one who is
behind it all. He would destroy those who were poisoning his land. Or he would
die trying.

Ragnar Bloodaxe: Prince of Torsgard, his family and village were
murdered by the power-hungry Deimos. He seeks revenge, hoping the power
of the Mace can restore his beloved land.

     Born the second brother of a powerful and noble Japanese family, Takeshi
and his older brother Ichiro were always close. As boys, they were
raised in the same fighting school to become proficient in swordsmanship
and the strategy of warfare.

warlord and his family, Takeshi became one of the most skilled warriors
in Japan, gaining renown for his skilled and honorable methods and
earning the respect of many generals. He soon became the youngest
general in the Emperor's high command.
    Although Ichiro would inherit great wealth and power being the first
born son, he was more than a little jealous of his brother's success. He
heard of a great mage in the West who offered people immortality and
unlimited power, and Ichiro journeyed across land and sea to meet the
fabled Asmodeus.
    When he returned, Ichiro was different, darker, glowing with a strange
health and sinister purpose. Mustering his own army, Ichiro waged
warfare on the Emperor and other Japanese feudal lords, often winning
mysteriously, as if aided by a dark power, when the odds were stacked
against him. He was a brutal leader, torturing his own troops as well as
his enemies. Japan was thrown into darkness.
Takeshi knows that to restore honor to his family, he must find the
source of evil that has twisted Ichiro. He must kill Asmodeus and resist
the corrupting power of the Mace.

Takeshi: Son of the Japanese Emperor, Takeshi has been trusted to
prevent the evil power of the Seven from spreading to Japan. He also
searches for his lost brother Ichiro.

        Born the son a of Chinese Warlord, vassal to the legendary Khan, Xiao
Long was trained early in the skills of martial combat. In the feudal battles
that raged across the Mongolian steppes, warlords would commonly torture
in public any enemies that were captured.
        When he was just fourteen, Xiao's father Khan ordered him to behead an
enemy soldier in the public square. Although he felt comfortable fighting hand-
to-hand with the enemy, Xiao did not want to murder a man so innocently. He
refused his father.
        Humiliated, Khan burned out Xiao's eyes and cast him outside the city
walls to meet his fate with the elements. Wandering for days, he found his way
to the mountains, where a group of Shaolin monks seemed to have been waiting
for him. They took him to their monastery, where he has remained for the past
twelve years. During this time Xiao has learned to master the Spirit Sense,
which enabled him to become a deadly fighter despite his blindness.
        Sensing that a great evil is encroaching from the land where the sun
sets, Xiao sets out to prevent the spread of pestilence to his native land. To
do so, he must vanquish Asmodeus and destroy the Mace.

Xiao Long: Disowned and blinded by his father Khan, Xiao was raised by
monks and taught to master the Spirit Sense. He vows to destroy evil in
all forms, beginning with the destruction of the Mace.

Vanquishing his foe, Xiao now picks up the Mace.
        Seeking to destroy it, Xiao prepares a spell. The Mace calls to him,
offering to restore Xiao's sight and promising him great power and wisdom.
        Xiao's sight was robbed of him by his father long ago - surely it would
be worth it to see the world again. It is a promise the most men would surely
accept - to be able to see beauty again, to have the wisdom of the ages, to be
able to ponder the meaning of all things. But is it really a trap? But will the
evil Mace instead corrupt Xiao, turning him into the despotic leader that he
has fought so hard to destroy?
        Without hesitation, Xiao destroys the Mace. Without sight, he has
learned to appreciate the world differently because of his other senses.
And he already has great wisdom.

        As he takes hold of the Mace of Tanis, the hardened shell of decades of
evil melts from Grendal. His memory returns; Grendal is really Taurus de
Castillo, twin brother of the Countess Taria and the rightful heir to the
Iberian throne. He is the son of Malanoche de Castillo, one of the Covenant of
Seven and despotic ruler of the Iberia.
        On the night of the birth of Taurus, a black shadow strangled the
moon's light. Asmodeus' scrye had a prophecy of doom: the evil child born to
Malanoche that night would prove to be Asmodeus' downfall. Asmodeus stormed
into the birthing chamber and demanded that the child be handed over to his
keeping, or else Malanoche would be stripped of his power. Taurus was born,
and Asmodeus took him and stormed out of the chamber. However, unknown to
Asmodeus, there was a twin yet to be born. Moments later, As Taria emerged,
the lights in the chamber went black and lightning streaked the sky.
Malanoche smiled; Asmodeus took the wrong twin. Here was the source of the
omen. Taria was the evil one, and the one that would follow in her father's
footsteps.
       Asmodeus turned Taurus into a grendal, a stone gargoyle who guards the
entrance to the netherworld. For decades, Taurus was forced to do the bidding
of his master, killing all those who would oppose Asmodeus.  Now, the decades
of evil have ended. Justly wielding the power of the Mace, Taurus destroys his
father and seizes the throne himself, ruling justly. He uses the Mace to purge
the rest of the Seven, chasing the darkness from the lands. Although he tries
to cure Taria, her evil is too strong. Unwilling to kill his sister, he instead
blinds her and cuts out her tongue. Unable to read spellbooks and recite
chants, Taria is forever shut away from the dark realms she once traveled.

SIR DREGAN : The Zombie Crusader
----------------------------------------------------------
------------------------
BIOGRAPHY :
------------------------

           Originally one of the great knights who led the first Crusade to
Jerusalem, Sir Dregan was felled there by the blow of a mighty axe which stole
his soul. Unable to find piece in the afterlife, Dregan's unliving flesh
returned from the grave and has walked the Earth for centuries.
Dregan is an undead crusader on a mission.
        Asmodeus made Dregan a member of the Covenant of Seven, promising
Dregan that he  would have access to plenty of souls in return for his loyalty.
Aided by the dark power, Dregan soon carved out a kingdom and became a
horrible ruler, helping Asmoedus in turn to grow his power. Dregan specialized
in stealing the souls of his victims, turning them into vampires, zombies
and other undead creations that spawned countless legends. Although he tried,
none could replace his own soul which he had lost long ago.
         Now he has heard that Asmodeus has known the location of his soul all
along, and that the power of the Mace can help him restore his humanity. He
must now attempt to kill Asmodeus, to whom he has been loyal for so long.

       The Mace restores Dregan's body to that of the glowing, healthy knight
that led the Crusades. Dregan learns that his soul resides in the great blade
of The Executioner, and in a great battle that rages across the length and
breadth of El Katraz, Dregan finally kills The Executioner and destroys
the great blade.
        His soul freed, Dregan is whole once again. He realizes that he cannot
get into heaven because of his crimes, and he must atone for his sins. Paying
the penance for his centuries of malevolence, Dregan wanders the land crushing
evil wherever it may arise.

ICHIRO TSUNAMI : The Evil Samurai
------------------------------------------------------------------
------------------------
BIOGRAPHY :
------------------------

        Born the first son of the Japanese Emperor, Ichiro would inherit great
wealth and power when he succeeded his father. His brother Takeshi, however,
proved to be the stronger warrior and Ichiro feared that he would be passed
over in favor of his younger brother. Ichiro traveled to the Western
lands to meet the fables Asmodeus, a demon who some said offered people
immortality and unlimited power.
        When he returned to Japan, Ichiro was different, darker, glowing with a
strange health and sinister purpose. It is rumored that Asmodeus has given
Ichiro a taste of the evil power of the dark Mace, which has fueled his rage.
Mustering his own army, Ichiro waged warfare on the Emperor and the routed the
feudal lords. Winning great victories, Ichiro seems destined to conquer Japan,
throwing it into a horrible darkness of his own design.
        Ichiro wants more than just a taste of power; he hungers to control the
great Mace, and once and for all crush his younger brother Takeshi. Ichiro will
rule Japan and turn it into the greatest warrior nation the world has ever
seen.

ENDING :

    Upon defeating Asmodeus, Ichiro grips the dark Mace of power. 
Coursing through is veins is the demon-strength of hell, giving him the power 
to conquer a continent. Ichiro at once destroys his family and assumes the 
throne of Japan, eliminating the few feudal lords that remain. However, Ichiro
is unable to find his brother Takeshi, who has taken to the mountains of 
Japans.  Japan is split by war and poverty, throwing the island nation into 
chaos. Under Ichiro's iron grip, the great feudal cities fall into rubble as 
Ichiro has his army scourthe countryside in vain searching for his brother. 
With a band of loyal samurai who will not concede Ichiro's rule, Takeshi wages
guerrilla warfare on Ichiro's army in the hopes of erasing the shame that he 
his brother has brought on Japan. Ichiro grows progressively more insane 
knowing that Takeshi will one day strike him down, if he doesn't find him 
first. Not even the power of the Mace can cure Ichiro's insanity.

WAR MECH : The War Machine
--------------------------------------------------
-------------------------
BIOGRAPHY :
-------------------------

        As the great struggle between light and dark rages above, the skilled
craftsmen of the Dwarf Kingdom have been toiling in their dim smithies located
in the roots of the mountains. Hidden from the world of sun and moon, this race
of stout miners has long been oppressed by the tyrannical rule of Lord Deimos,
one of the Covenent of Seven. Threatened with death if they dare disobey,
dwarven guildsmen have for centuries crafted the fine armor and weapons that
have given Deimos' troops the edge in countless battles.
        Fired by the flames of revenge, the dwarves have longed to construct a
mighty machine which would destroy their enemies. One night, in a nightmare
filled with fire and screams, Gar Gudrunson, master craftsman of the dwarves,
has a vision: he saw marching across the battlefields above a strange engine,
solidly built of iron and brass and powered by steam. In his dream, Gar's
bizarre creation smashes Deimos' troops and wins freedom for the long-suffering
dwarven legions.
        He immediately directs his craftsmen to build his mad machine. Will it
be enough to defeat Deimos? It must be piloted by one who possesses such
hatred against Deimos that they will strive for victory no matter what the
cost. Gar Gudrunson himself will pilot the Dwarven Warmech.

  Gar gazes at the Mace of Tanis in amazment. It is perfection. The Mace speaks
to him, and in his mind Gar sees a world where the dwarven race will not just
live in freedom -- it will dominate the world above! Gar returns to the dark
halls of the Dwarf Kingdom and displays the Mace to the many dwarfs gathered
there. They too are seduced by the power of the Mace. Soon shouts of,
"Revenge! Enslave the humans! Kill!!" echo through the caverns.
        In a frenzy of activity the dwarves construct hundreds of War Mechs and
march out of the hidden halls to dominate the land above.
