I wanted to share this idea and get some feedback on it. Always looking for ways to improve stories and build upon them. ^^
Blight's have plagued the land numerous times throughout history. No one is really sure how the Darkspawn find the old ones, or even the details in how they become an Archedemon. It is only know that the various darkspawn spread across the underdark like locus, searching for their masters.
But now the truth has been uncovered, but are we already too late to stop it? It has been recovered that during the hiatus of a Blight there are Four Riders (Name is still in debate). Special Generals of the darkspawn who are even more feared than their emissary's. These four Generals are who hold the darkspawn together while the Archdemons slumber. They are the ones who blood awakens the beast in a dark and sacred ritual.
These four riders are all powerful in their own rights. In the journals uncovered they are often referred to as the Four Rider of the Archdemon. Not much is known of them save that all four are uniquely different.
Rider of Conquest is the strongest and more feared of them. A terrifying Ogre who even towers over his own kind.
Rider of War is the most bloodthirsty of their kind. A Genlock who wears the heaviest of armor stained in the blood of dwarves.
Rider of Famine is the powered by supernatural magics, a dark master in the rites of blood. This Hurlock possesses an intelligence that would even rival the greatest Mage or Bard.
Rider of Death is a Shriek covered in darkness. Death laying in wake where ever it shows.
It is through these four efforts that the darkspawn are not completely wiped out after a Blight ends. It is also their efforts that keep them organized in attempts to uncovered the Old Gods. Can you find these fiends and stop them before they release the next Archdemon?
