The time of the Maelstrom is at hand!
The Masters of the Void are at war. Tearing through the fabric of the universe, they are summoning their minions and strongholds from across the planes to do battle and help them dominate the center of existence itself: the Vortex. For the one who controls the Vortex controls the universe.
But the Masters' war is breaking down the walls between the planes. Realities are crashing into each other - with cataclysmic results! They have brought about the time of the Maelstrom, and if no one controls the Vortex soon, the cosmos itself may be swept into the Void.
In MAELSTROM, you play a Master of the Void, fighting your opponents for control of the Vortex. Build your army of minions and strongholds, summon them to the battle, and unleash them against your opponents' forces.
