Baphomet is a powerful Daemon lord. She rules a large part of the Abyss, and much of her domain lies beneath the Emperor's kingdom. But she has been losing much of her credibility with the other Deamon lords. The Emperor has seen to it that any portal that connects the Abyss to the mortal world has been closed or destroyed, and has personally eradicated any Daemonic creatures or beings he has come across. Baphomet has become desperate, and has sent word across the Abyss and the mortal world for those who would be willing or able to defeat the Emperor. She promises anyone who can accomplish this would get the Emperor's kingdom as payment, as well as the Empress herself.
