The portal to the Great Rift is no longer expanding, but the forbidden sorcery required to close it continues to elude Valreia the Riftwalker and the Elder Riftwalker she has recruited to help her. Even though the Hellbourne have stationed Malphas near the mouth of the portal to stop any creatures trying to pass through, the Elder Riftspawn are too powerful for even a dozen of the sentry daemons. These monstrosities cross into Newerth with sickening ease, and it is up to the true heroes of our realm to send them back or leave their carcasses here to rot, for even the carrion eaters cant stomach them.
The Elder Rift Tempest carries within it the chaotic weather and environmental conditions of the Great Rift, and the highly flammable gasses, plummeting meteors and unpredictable voids do a quick job of turning any Newerth battlefield into a terrifying mirror of the nightmarish Great Rift. Following in the wake of the Elder Rift Cthulhuphant, the Elder Rift Tempest seeks to turn the path of destruction into a fertile landscape for the seeds of chaos.
