"Years after dealing with the Cabal, Caleb lives on the outskirts of a small village. After having been almost fully erradicated, the last Cabal infiltrated the highest ranks of most religions and governments. Years passed by, more Cabal got recruited and step by step the people got mentally prepared to obey what was coming, one religion, one government, ruled by the Cabal. Cramon, an occult high-priest and new leader of the Cabal envisions to become the next incarnation of Tchernobog. To free the essence of Tchernobog from Caleb's bones, Cramon wants to face Caleb where fear and desperation rule, the Underworld, a dark dimension accessible via a passage in an ancient monastery. In the Underworld, Cramon is able to take on a demonic form, in which he can surely kill Caleb. To lure out Caleb, Cramon came up with a radical plan. Those that were expected to resist the Cabal were listed to be purged. Seeing how the Cabal would once again kill everybody around Caleb would surely trigger his rage. On purge night, all homes of possible insurgents get bloodmarked by cultists, that's the sign everyone in those homes can get killed by the Cabal legion. Caleb hears screams of agony and a neighbour runs into his house. Seconds later the whole door gets punched in and the neighbour gets shot, leaving bloody holes in the wall. Caleb gets knocked out. A cultist sees Caleb's cat Cleo cowering in a corner and grabs her. Things are about to get real bloody again."
Custom Episode: The Way of Ira
Caleb storms out of his home, defends his yard and garden, and trudges down the rocky hillside into the besieged village. Fighting through some store fronts and façades, and around a newly central guillotine, he faces a legion of cultists praying in the nearby chapel. This unlocks the graveyard gate and reveals the way out. (IRA01: PURGE NIGHT). He emerges into a forested area ran through with intersecting swampy rivers, and battles his way through several outposts and fortresses, collecting keys to access a subterranean cave (IRA02: KNEE DEEP IN SLUDGE). This exposes a molten pit with a series of winding chambers that must be unlocked on by one (IRA03: CABAL TOWN).
"I've used my holidays to start mapping for my favourite game. Name of the episode (seeing it big again): The way of Ira. Name of the first level: Purge Night. The story in a nutshell: After a rough life, you've been living in the woods near a village. Over time, the cultists in the village became more and more corrupt until they finally decided to purge everybody in the village and you during Purge Night. You somehow survive and immediately start your revenge."
