Description and LoreEdit
The Imperium: Lightning MasterEdit
Taming lightning is one of science’s greatest challenges! This persistent researcher refused to succumb to the ridicule and warnings of his colleagues. When lightning melted the earth right beside him, the Lightning Master merely laughed. His lab burned to the ground twice, but he did not give up. Each time, he immediately began rebuilding it. Even the call of the Prime could not distract him from his objective.
His design talents helped him produce an electric glove, the Hand of Thunder, which was capable of accumulating the power of thousands of lightning bolts. Using it, the Lightning Master hoped to power a flying machine. But during one of his experiments, such a powerful blast of lightning hit that the Hand of Thunder could not contain its energy, and the fearless experimenter was burned to the ground in a rage of heavenly flame.
The scientist perished, but from the ashes of his experiment, a new hero was born when rescuers found the scorched glove, which became his Catalyst. He could effortlessly harness the power of thunderstorms and send sizzling flashes of ball lightning surging from his fingertips. As adventurous as he was before, the new Lightning Master feared nothing and was one of the first to fight in the war. All of his life, he had been taught that the Keepers were the eternal enemies of the Empire. Now, it was up to him to crush them.
During battle, he hovers over his enemies’ heads, zapping them with bolts of lightning. Even the most fearless warriors retreat in disarray at the sound of his thunderous laughter roaring from the clouds. They know that this reckless storm rider borders on insanity. At any moment, lightning could come crashing down on them.
The Keepers: Storm ThrowerEdit
One night, as the rain poured down in torrents, this hero was born as a flash struck the earth. The baby’s first cry came as the thunder pealed and lightning split the sky, its reflection the first sight the wide little eyes had of the world.
From that day, they called him Storm. He grew up to be a clever yet stubborn child, but that wasn’t what was strange about him. When he was sad, it would begin to rain. When he was angry, the thunderclouds would swell to great heights and flashes of lightning would rend the air. Storm could ignite a spark from his finger, and when he was having fun, flashes of bright light would fill his eyes.
Everyone knew that the boy was on his way to becoming a hero, but when people asked the local lord to help him uncover his heroic abilities, he refused. He believed that he would meet his destiny on his own.
Storm went off into the wilderness of Sik’Hai. He wandered out among the ancient drawings in the desert. On the third day, a dry thunderstorm broke out. Piercing flashes of lightning rent the sky, crashing into the dunes. The sands struck by the powerful blasts were transformed into glass. Storm Thrower hovered in the center of the wild elements, lightning encircling his body. The storm intensified, the flashes merging into an endless cascade, and the atmosphere was filled with suspended Prime. Suddenly, everything stopped. The hero had subdued the storm!
He had long thought he was the only one in Praia who could tame the lightning, but a hero with similar powers soon appeared in the Imperium, as well. Now, the Storm Thrower looks to battle with this rival master of thunder.
Using any talent adds the Thunder and Lightning effect to the hero, increasing the usual attack power of his chain lightning. With repeated use of the talent, the effect is multiplied, increasing the number of targets damaged. Over time, the effect becomes weaker and deals less damage.
The hero hurls his hammer at the enemy, inflicting damage. After the hero learns Shock Attack, the hammer strike stuns the target, lowering his Speed and Agility.
The hero launches a ball of lightning with a limited range. Once it hits its target, it explodes, inflicting damage. If the Lightning Bolt explodes on Native Terrain, it also damages enemies near the target. After the hero learns Electric Burn, opponents affected by the Lightning Bolt have their Fortitude and Will decreased for a few seconds.
For a few seconds, the hero damages enemies behind him when he moves. After the hero learns Lightning Speed, he receives a bonus to his movement speed whenever he uses Overload.
Rage of the SkiesEdit
This ability strikes all enemy characters on the map with lightning, inflicting great amounts of damage. If the enemies are located on the hero’s Native Terrain, the lightning strikes slow them down.
