The Dying Age
Great Gold Wyrm
The Great Gold Wyrm is the world’s protector and the inspiration for holy orders of knights and independent heroes. Although the Gold Wyrm’s physical form seals the gap that prevents the Abyss from erupting into the world, his dreams and agents still move through the world, helping those who will fight and even die for what’s right.
Centuries ago, the Great Gold Wyrm threw itself into the Abyss to prevent the demons of hell from pouring out into the world. The Wyrm’s physical presence and his magical wards are still all that prevents the Abyss from ripping the world wide open. Most often the Wyrm remains stationary near the worst of the tears in reality, other times he rampages through a portion of the Abyss slaying demons that have caught his eye. Knights claim say that if true heroes can find a way to stop the gap, even for a night and a day, the Great Gold Wyrm would be free to reinvigorate his followers, restore the Golden Citadel, and beat back The Three.
There has only ever been one Great Gold Wyrm, from the days when the gods made all the worlds to this very day. And some would say that there’s not much of the Great Gold Wyrm left.
