This is my final post apocalypse creation for a little while. Then I'll start posting some of my star wars creations.
The backstory begins with a mercenary working with some archaeologists in Egypt, investigating some sort of pyramid shaped temple. The gods depicted in the hieroglyphics on the walls looked nothing like the Egyptian gods. The mercenary picked up a statue of a strange, demonic looking god. There was a flash of red light and the statue's power fused with him. He then became Azelm, God of Nightmares and the Desert.
