    Description:
       The penultimate part of my backstory, this includes a tale I tried to turn into an RP, but it didn't work. This and the last part of the backstory have the most direct influence on events in the main story. Hope you enjoy, and feel free to comment. It should say phoenix gate at the end of the title lol

    dotsThe rise of the "Dark Alliance"dots
    -------------------------------------------


    After the Time of Great Darkness, for millions of years there was no universe-spanning war. No single warlord could gather enough strength to threaten the allies, but this was to change. The origins of the group called the "Dark Alliance" is uncertain, what is known is that they were six rogue psychics, determined to conquer the known universe.
    Their first attempt 10,000 years ago, required them to release the "pure demons" from the parallel universe in which they were trapped. While this attack was unexpected, it was too badly organised to succeed. Defeated by an allied army on a desert world, the demon army was forced back to where they came from. However, the Dark Alliance survived, and had learnt their lessons, and would strike again 5,000 years later.....
    Demon raids were certainly not unheard of, so when a series of them struck planets near to the Demonic Realms, most ignored them. However, one group had realised a horrible truth: the attacks were forming a pattern, with a planet sat right in the middle. Their warning came too late however.....
    The invasion struck with extreme force, the few who escaped describing their world as a "living hell." So had begun the Demonic Wars, as a horde of demons spread north. Unlike their first attempt, this attack by the Dark Alliance had been planned flawlessly, the forces of light unable to stop the invasion. Soon, all but six worlds had been conquered. These were the planets powerful enough that the demonic leader would not risk fighting them at first, but things changed....
    Seeing the ice world of Valhalla as his greatest threat, he sent a massive army to conquer it, and at first it seemed to work perfectly. Two cities were swept before the horde with little resistance, but this left the twin cities of Aygar and Valhalla still standing. Realising the former was the softer target, the warlord unleashed his horde upon it.
    It appeared hopeless: vastly outnumbered, and with no help arriving, it looked like the defenders were making a last stand, but then things started to turn the other way. A small band of reinforcements were sent to help hold Phoenix Gate, where the last stand was being made, and then two days after the siege started, the allied forces arrived.
    The demon forces were caught between the defenders and the fresh forces. Soon the allies had fought their way to where the warlord stood, surrounded by six massive bodyguards. Many heroes were lost in the attempt to kill him, but eventually he was felled, and the demon forces fled. The allies had won the war! It was at great cost though: worlds lay devastated, and the great hero, the True Chosen One, now lay dead. His body was taken from Valhalla, his spirit encased in a mysterious crystal, as some believed he would soon be needed again. Plus, the Dark Alliance were still alive.....

    Effect on main story:
    The crystal and the Dark Alliance play major parts in the story, but it would be spoiling the plot to reveal what.....

      i am pulling my hair out right now literally! you are such a tease!

    parts of this story reminded me of LOTR...please don't take offense... it was only a small part about the reinforcements coming from behind with people still fighting in front.

    i am beginning to wonder if there will ever be an end. those poor people....wars and wars and wars and wars. all they are running on is hope that something or someone will come to their rescue next time war comes.

    i am curious to see how it all ends.

    hopefully it will be more real than happily ever after.
