EarthDawn - The Age of Legends
The Invae are insect spirits from a neighboring Netherrealm, bent on infiltrating and consuming the material plane. In the centuries before the Scourge, they infiltrated the ranks of a Temple to Chorrolis in the Kingdom of Landis. When they were finally discovered, hundreds of Name-givers had been possessed and their souls subverted by the Invae spirits. A mass panic occurred, and thousands more died in the subsequent “witch hunts” as the government tried to root out their insidious influence, in a time that became known as the Invae Burnings. Eventually, the mages of Landis developed a method by which the Invae could be blocked from our plane – they created gates to their plane, focusing all travel through those portals and then locked the portals with magical keys. Being relatively unintelligent, especially when compared to Horrors, this defense worked for several centuries until the Invae managed to find weaknesses in the portals, allowing a few to slip through at a time. Those few scoured the land, looking for the keys used to lock the portals, and finally finding them in the ruins of Parlainth. They possessed a Troll Nethermancer Named Buulgath Ghosttouched and used his form to acquire more keys, and ultimately to unlock and then destroy the sealed gates in Landis releasing the rest of their race to return to the material plane.
