New Content[edit | edit source]

Only one person in Newerth could venture into the depths of the Scar, slap the daemons around and turn them into her weapons of mass corruption: Carnage Calamity. With a shackled daemon spitting hellfire and a flying ring of burning skull chainsaws, she has stormed out of the Vault of All Hells to kill anything that is or could possibly become a daemon. So everything. She's basically a walking BFG. That stands for Badass Fiery Girl, of course.
Young Midas was born an orphaned slave who was bought by one of the richest households in the Capital of Arasunia. His unquenchable desire for precious metals and fine jewels began the instant he first saw the finery within the small palace, and he knew the fastest route to wealth would be to gain glory in the illegal gladiatorial arenas of Arasunia. When he was barely in his teens he wore leather and rope into his first contest. Within a year, he was sheathed in bronze. By the time he turned twenty, his skill and popularity had earned him a suit of armor made of sterling silver, and by then his forays into the underworld already had him dabbling in the alchemy which would lead to his ultimate dream...and curse.

The Paragons[edit | edit source]

The Paragons are a faction of ancient, elemental guardians from the isolated Isle of Argentia. They embody the wisdom, emotion, and power of the earth, and the flesh of each Paragon has been overtaken by veins of crystals that hold a strong connection to the planet. They have refused to enter the wars among Man, Beast, and Daemon for fear that if captured, their bodies could be used as conduits to feed death and corruption directly into the earth.
But with King Jeraziah driven to the brink of his faith and needing someone to counter the self-righteous destruction of the URSA Corps, he summons The Paragons, knowing that once they see the state of Newerth they will be forced to join the fight against the Hellbourne as well.
A peaceful, serene world free of ailment is ideal for the Amethyst Paragon, whose crystals hold the power to relieve many physical maladies of mortal creatures. He is more than willing to deliver these crystal cures to any who require them, though sometimes the only solution is sending the subject into the next realm of existence, where they will finally find the peace so cherished by the Amethyst crystals.

The proud and vengeful princess Amba was reborn as Srikandi, who was raised by her father as a son and trained in the ways of warfare. Srikandi's fierce independence and skill with bow and arrow made her a devastating enemy, especially to those foolish enough to lower their weapons out of concern over fighting a woman.
  • New Holiday Edition Indonesian Independence Day Accursed.jpg Accursed Avatar: Rahwana.jpg Rahwana
After performing severe penance for ten thousand years, Rahwana, the King of Kings and Emperor of the Three Worlds, was gifted by Brahma with the gift of immortality against gods, daemons, and spirits. He used this gift to dominate and oppress the gods, earning the wrath of Vishnu, who knew Rahwana the daemon king could only be killed by a human. With this knowledge, Vishnu chose to be born into mortality as Rama.
When Rahwana learned of this incredible warrior named Rama, he kidnapped the man's one true love, Sita, and tried to force her to marry him. When Rama finally tracked Rahwana down, an epic battle ensued that ended with Rahwana slain and Rama reunited with Sita.
Rahwana was sent into the Vault of All Hells, where he has waited for his chance to be reborn and exact vengeance upon Rama and Sita. The Third Corruption has finally given him that chance, and all of Newerth shudders at his rebirth!
Dalang is the sinister master of shadows, twisting them into terrifying and hideous puppets that distract his victims from the fact that he is collecting their shadows as well -
Thailand celebrates Mother's Day on the birthday of Her Majesty, Queen Sirikit of Thailand, Mother of all Thai people, who was born on August 12th, 1932. Floral Ellonia is here to honor her and mothers everywhere, and there is going to be a frigid field of trouble coming your way if you don't go hug your mom and tell her thank you.
The Savages were the last Clan of Men to fall beneath King Maliken Grimm's fist during the War of the Single Banner, and the Berzerkers were the last Savage tribe to bend the knee. They stood in the bitter cold of the Frost Fields, each of them ready to die before relinquishing their beloved freedom, and even the ruthless Grimm knew the bloody cost of exterminating the fanatical warriors would be too high. He named them Wardens of the Frost Fields and left them on the far side of Grimm's Crossing to kill each other or die of exposure.
The Legion heard nothing more from them until the Second Corruption, when a wave of rabid, cold-hardened Berzerkers led by Erik the Red flooded the battlefields in search of carnage and daemon blood. Now the Legion soldiers pray that a Berserker will be among their ranks when the battle begins, for at the very least the howling barbarian will attract the enemy's full attention.
