Cryptic has released information and screenshots of The Bleak Ones, the evil creators of the Lemurians in its MMO, Champions Online.
Based in the Sunken City of Lemuria, The Bleak Ones watched in glee as the Lemurians have slowly lost their powers and then their land, after turning their backs on their creators:
“They howled in rage when the Lemurians turned from them to worship false gods. They exacted revenge and publicly tortured the soul of the false prophet upon his death. They laughed to see their Lemurian children lose the ability to change shape. They delighted to watch Lemuria sink into the sea amidst fire and chaos. They have waited, and hungered for thousands of years, as the Lemurians strove for immortality.”
With Lemuria in the midst of civil war, The Bleak Ones come with an offer; return to them and receive the ability to change into a reptile that can live underwater.
