The Devourer Saga is AdventureQuest's first major story arc. While the saga proper started in mid-2005 with the release of the Epic Quest, it ties into a great deal of earlier content such as the Carnax Saga and the Dragon War, as well as the out-of-game material listed below. It ended nearly three years later with The Final Battle. It was revisited during the 10th Anniversary, which contained a long summary by Falerin that included a mix of in-game and demicanonical events.

The storyline itself is concerned with the return of an entity known as the Devourer to Lore, apparently intending to finish the destruction he started a thousand years ago. As the saga unfolds, however, it becomes clear that things are not nearly so simple...

Part 1: Prologue

An attack on Sage Uldor sends the player on a twisting path that leads them to a being known as the Shadow Master.

Demicanonical Material

A great deal of information relevant to the Devourer Saga was contained in sources outside of the game itself. The staff have since ceased revealing any new information in out-of-game sources and are making efforts to add existing material to the game, but as it is a large project the source material is being included here in the meantime. While out-of-game content is generally considered to be true within the game's universe, it is considered less important than content within the game itself and may be subject to alterations if and when it is included in the game.

There are two primary collections of demicanonical material: a series of novelettes/novellas written by Falerin known as the Histories, and numerous chat/RP sessions involving players, Falerin, Maxwell, and various NPCs.

The Histories provide a great deal of backstory for many of the NPCs introduced during the saga. They will be added to the game in the upcoming Derenian wing of the Hall of Memories. The stories are as follows:

War of the Words
All That Is Evil Is Not Dark
Manifestation: the Coming Dark
The Path to Greatness
Journal of The'Galin/Journal of the Uncreator

The IRC sessions were originally archived by Lkeas here; the archive was later (mostly) transferred to Caelwiki to spread the workload around.
