Rise of the Warlock King
The armies of Nophkeh the Demon Warlock were led by fourteen Warlords. These warlords had come from a variety of different backgrounds (including tribal chieftains, Guard Commander of the High Temple, mercenary captains, etc.) and had all proven their loyalty to the Demon Warlock by committing unspeakable acts.
It was then a complete surprise when one of them, Warlord Benang, assassinated Nophkeh.
