Greetings Defenders, and welcome to our first monthly lore column!
My name is Courtney, and I, along with our Creative Directors, am in charge of Dungeon Defenders lore. This month I’m excited to share the story of Siphon Site D, one of our newest maps and one that Defense Council members will get to try out very soon!
Etheria At War
When the threat of the Old Ones was but a distant memory, Etheria suffered its worst possible fate: The Eternia Crystals shattered. Foul creatures spread like a plague through the land. The Old Ones amassed such an army that even the largest cities crumbled beneath them. Etheria was in ruin.
Champions were immediately summoned to the front lines. The men and women who answered the call became the Sunderguard, and they stood toe to toe with the armies of the Old Ones. But the enemy’s number was too great. Etheria was overwhelmed, and the Sunderguard had no choice but to fall back to the northern territories.
