FATE of the 13th Age
The Crusader in the armored fist of the Dark Gods. So long as followers of the Gods of Light stay the hell out of his way, the Crusader turns his wrath against the demons that would destroy the world that his gods want to rule. Follow the Crusader if you must win at any cost.
“I fear nothing, least of all doing what must be done.”
First Triumph, a fortress in a conquered hellhole near Axis. Or
One way or another, it’s a bad sign that the Crusader is accommodated within the Empire and sometimes even welcomed. It means either that the common people have lost their good sense or that times are so dire that the people will accept the help of a destroyer bound to the Dark Gods.
If the enemy of your enemy is your friend, then the Crusader is everybody’s friend because demons are everybody’s enemy. The Crusader, however, is the sort of friend who will burn your house to the ground if he finds it tactically necessary.
The mighty deeds of the Crusader include conquering hellholes and making them his own. The first hellhole he conquered was an especially large and perverted one near the Imperial capital, Axis. It was there that he established his headquarters, known as First Triumph. When he conquers a hellhole, he binds the defeated demons and forces them to garrison the fort he builds or claims at the location.
