Background
The Slann Mage-Lord opened his eyes for the first time in over 250 years. Instantly, his attendants were aware of their master's sorcerous mind awakening and pulling decades of memories from their own minds. The power of the Mage-Lord could be felt throughout the temple and the Skink Shamans and servants were filled with dread. Was this the foretold time when the children of Sotek would reclaim the power and glory of the Old Ones?

They dared not disobey and so they sent out invitations across the lands, daring the mightiest teams to do battle in Lustria, with the winning team to earn the right to have the mightiest of Temple Guardians join their team. A ferocious and arcanely blessed Saurus Warrior, 250 years in the breeding...
