Displacement energies fluxuated in the air, easily felt by those attuned to magic but what came next would be unsettling to all. Vortexes - portals - opened in the overcast sky above, giving birth to elongated, jagged objects that navigated the skies with ease. They were of a blackened metal, ports glowing green, and more of them just kept pouring out of the rift in the clouds. They descended all at once, launching volleys of fel-fire down on nearby villages, or hovering barely above the land to offload their cargo; demons.
