An act of terror perpetrated by the Heaven’s Will Cult across 11 cities worldwide (Beijing; Berlin; Bogotá; Cairo; London; Moscow; New York City; Paris; Reykjavík; Rome; Washington, DC). The cult coordinates the detonation of rigged “Dark Energy” Bombs, which act like large scale EM explosions, and create a ripple in the fabric of reality at the blast site. Where the blasts occur deaths are the highest, but along heretofore unknown faults this sends out a ripple that brings earthquakes and further electromagnetic interference. Powergrids and electronic communications collapse, as the deathtoll rises and the air itself begins to hum with a strange hue. Where these lines cross, the world tears itself open and reveals vast and alien worlds, from which pour monstrosities and horrors, and the Chaos War begins. From detonation, it is less than three minutes before the energy waves have circled the earth and the rifts are open.
