Oakhurst: The Blood War

The Blood War between devils and demons or baatezu and Tanar'ri, respectively, has always fascinated me.




In my Oakhurst game, the Blood War is over. Perhaps Asmodeus, as a new god, pushed the Abyss deep into the Elemental Chaos as he did in the 4th Edition Era or perhaps not? What matters is that, according to prophecy, it has reignited and the Players are right in the middle of things. In fact, our Paladin has to find a mythic shield and horn to protect his world from this newly ignited conflagration.

What has me excited, isn't merely the chance to toss my Player's into the crossfire of war between fiends, but also how those fiends might go about interfering with or even recruiting said players. How will celestials factor in? And what role will yugoloths play?

In my mind's eye, the Blood War is an epic, desperate, ruthless battle between enemies willing to do anything to win.  In many ways, they remind me of my Players.
