The realm of Sarkoris was destroyed when Areelu Vorlesh, a scholar and practitioner of forbidden magics, opened a rift to the abyssal planes of existence, and hordes of demons invaded the world of Golarion. Led by the evil Demon Lords Deskari and Baphomet, the abyssal forces crushed all who stood against them, turning Sarkoris into a demon‑infested land now known as the Worldwound.

Make tactical skill your own
Crusade battles now take place in a new and separate game mode: tactical combat. In this new turned based mode inspired by Heroes of Might and Magic series, you command your troops and use their unique abilities to fight the demons and their cultist worshipers. Military leaders will assist you in your crusade. They will command your armies, grant them powerful bonuses, and deploy rituals to determine the winner. In the wake of the battle, the leader may then level up, allowing you to select new potent abilities for them.
Make your crusade a truly Mythical venture
Your mythic path will open new opportunities — do you call angels to your aid, or do you form both your fallen soldiers and enemies into an undead horde? What supernatural beings will fight by your side? What powerful magic granted by your mythic power will you use to advance your crusade?
The moment of truth
Your power is not limited to tactical command: you also have to plan the crusade’s overall strategic development. Are your armies inspired by heroism, or do you forge them into a well-oiled war machine oblivious to valor and devoid of humanity? Should you put your faith in an elite heavily-armored infantry or push on with condemned criminals as cannon fodder? Who are your allies—hellknights from Cheliax or barbarians from the frozen reaches also threatened by Worldwound, or perhaps an outside mercenary force? The choice is yours.
