A lot is happening behind the scenes in the Rage Universe, and many stories are still left to be told. Most of these stories will be told in Worlds of Rage.
• Serena: The sorcerer Erasmus has come to Deer Antler’s Inn and has put everyone under a sleeping spell before going to Tuk’s room. There, Erasmus attempted again to convince Tuk to give him the fabled Bracelet of Chance. (Don’t believe me? Read Rage #2!) Now, the morning has come and everyone is waking up. It’s time for Serena to have a talk with Mark Longfellow.
• Arcana: Ennis, Baron of Mendor; Arlin, Count of Dubrios; Lorne, Count of Orbis; and Aldaro, Duke of calbriga are plotting to dethrone King Kothas. To this end, Brann of Dubrios, Arlin’s right-hand man, has been sent to recruit other rich and powerful lords, but something has happened to him, and instead of a new ally, the cabal seems to have made a new enemy. In order to gather as much information as possible, Ennis has called Khain Alhazred, a powerful seer who can show images of the past, present and future. So far, the four lords know that Brann has joined a team of mercenaries who were going to castle Arvenskar, where he encountered the sorcerer Sibelius, and his ally, Master Demon Torg, who planned to take power in Arthkan beginning with the Fortress of Kahel. It also seems that on their way to the castle, the mercenaries encountered a tribe of Picts, and that Brann gained the trust of his fellow mercenaries after the battle that ensued. But what really happened this day?
• The Rage Universe isn’t limited to the European Kingdom of Arthkan. Events are beginning to unfold in Kusha, the African continent of the Rage Universe, which will ultimately have an impact on the Rage Series. The origin of these events will be told in the very first Rage Strip, Curse of the Panthermen, and it all begins in a tunnel, in the diamond mines of the Bathu City. M’jala, Bwerani and Hokwui are slaves working in the mines. After an accident which has set them free, Hokwui has become the leader of a group of rebel slaves, while M’jala and Bwerani are fleeing in the tunnels.
