| The Founding of Weerhousen|
We are the true gods of this world. We need to show the world what the gods of this world are capable of. Today we stop. Today we take ourselves a new home.
With their new home chosen the Lahmians begin to look at expanding outside their own fortress of Lahmia City where they had made their home base and out into the regions around the city. This expansion was ordered by Queen Neferata of whome while being the figure head of the expansion was delegating the tasks of the actual operation to her Dukes of which Abhorash, and Ushoran would take the lead in this way. The two devised a plan where in Ushoran would use diplomacy and skilled civil management in order to annex different areas that were in the area, and while this was going on Abhorash was preparing the military of the Lahmians in order to militarily defeat the humans if they resisted. In the area there were only two major forces of resistence in the form of the Dutchy of Krieger, and the Confederacy of Gregior of which the Dutchy of Krieger was rumored to be quite powerful and led by an effective leader in House Krieger. While Ushoran moved towards the Confederacy of Gregior he sent Vashenesh and Hercuso to the Dutchy of Krieger where he hoped they could get them to submit easily and avoid any bloodshed. He would also send Fadil Heratee to the realm of Ravensburg where he would be ordered to meet with the leadership of that region in House Constein.
Confederacy of Gregior
Main Article : House Gregior
The Confederacy of Gregior was built around its powerful House Gregior of whome controlled a large tract of a region east of Lahmian City, and they also had a vassal Kingdom in the city state of Crailsheim which provided them with economic, and manpower to fuel their growing realm. When Ushoran arrived in the Kingdom he was quick to buy off sell swords, and other people with swaying loyalty and from these people he learned of whom the power brokers were in the realm of which every person seemed to direct him towards House Gregior and its charismatic heir Breven Gregior. Ushoran was very impressed when he met Breven and he realized very quickly that he could save thousands of lives if he were to convince Breven to simply take his people and join with the growing Kingdom of Weerhousen. Ushoran used the only tool he had at his disposal after his bribary was rejected when he threatened to kill the entirety of House Gregior if he was not listened to. Breven called his bluff and Ushoran reluctantly heeded the words of W'Soran who told him he would make Breven understand that they meant business when they were discussing matter. W'Soran would absolutely annihilate nearly half of House Gregior after he and several of his Nechrarch Vampires used Magi to warp in demons to attack and kill members of House Gregior. Following this event the two would meet again and Breven realized what he was dealing with and he allowed the annexation of the Confederacy into the Kingdom of Weerhousen.
Ravensburg was the area that Fadil Heretee was sent to in order to pacify and bring the city state of Ravensburg into the fold. He discovered upon arriving in the region that it was very poor, but its most pressing issue was dealing with the constant raids and invasions from the Trolloc dominated forests to the south. Fadil spent nearly two months building up support amongst the populated southern towns, and villages and his growing army prepared itself to invade the Trollocs. The next time the Trollocs invaded into Ravensburg land the army of Fadil was prepared and waiting for them, and the Trollocs were massacred on such a level that the people of Ravensburg begin to clamor for him to enter a control position within the council of Ravensburg. As he and his army made their way north towards Ravensburg they were opposed by a large force led by the towns leaders who feared his influence. The two armies would maneuver themselves for some time while Fadil waited for his reinforcements to arrive in the form of Soren from the Blood Dragons of whom arrived a week later and made his way to the city of Ravensburg which was now undefended and took control of the town under the banner of Fadil's army. With their city in their enemies hand and the people now obsessively in love with Fadil the army of the town begin to desert in massive numbers until three days after the fall of Ravensburg the army was a skeleton force and Fadil would surround the remainder with his force. No quarter would be offered these men and the remainder were massacred and their holdings and wealth distributed to those houses, and individuals that had not joined them and left Ravensburg.
Dutchy of Krieger
Main Article : House Krieger
House Krieger was always going to be the section of Weerhousen that gave them the most trouble as it had a solid, and powerful army that was led by the effective and honorable House Krieger. The conversion of this land would begin when Vashenesh, and Hercuso crossed the border with many of their Vampire Bloodline and made their way to the capital of Krieger. When they arrived on the outskirts they were way lade by the town guard of whom said they could not enter and that a series of tents would be set up so that the council of Krieger could meet with them. Vashenesh accepted this and prepared to lead his men to the area they were told to wait, when all of a sudden Hercuso became agitated about this supposed insult and raised his weapon at the guard commander.
| The Trolloc War|
These beasts are the only things standing between us and our destiny. I will not allow some creatures barely above cattle to slow the progress my people have made, and because of that I want them ruined. Leave no trace of them. Destroy their homes. Destroy their people. Destroy the very memory of them.
War with the Trolloc
See Also : Krax
With the Vampires staking claim to regions in Weerhousen it was only a matter of time until they upset the massive Trolloc population of the area. As the vampires extended their influence, the Duke W'soran begin massacuring villages and settlements of Trolloc in his constant search for subjects. This got to such a point that the Trolloc of the region begin marshalling under a particularly powerful Trolloc named Krax. Krax beggining raiding local human villages and towns of W'soran, but this was the wrong area to try and insite retribution from since W'soran cared little if anything for the region. As the attacks continued the Trolloc begin spreading to other regions, and attacked a village controlled by the Duke Abhorash. This would be the moment where the attacks of Krax would finally meet resistence as the forces of Abhorash marsheled themselves to destroy the attacking Trollocs.
Battle of Hornish Village
Seeing his servants under attack and a chance for war, the brilliant Abhorash marshaled his army and moved to the village. When he arrived at the village, he found only a small attack force, and was at first disappointed by the little force arrayed against him. As he approached closer though his force was quickly surrounded by the total Trolloc force. Abhorash's army was surrounded by a Trolloc force that outnumbered his by 4-1, but this only egged him on and he pulled his forces in and prepared to withstand the coming attack.
Abhorash was correct and the Trolloc did simply charge the Blood Dragon force.
Main Article : The Battle of Gurt
The war with the Trolloc of Weerhousen appeared to be going without a hitch, and it wasn't until a massive army of Trollocs ambushed Queen Neferata that they realized they were in a very hostile land. While travelling from Lahmia City to Krieger the convoy was ambushed by a large force of Trolloc. The convoy was moving with Queen Neferata, Vashenesh, Hurcuso, and a number of Vash Consteins vampires, so they were almost cocky in their arrogance. The vampires had traveled throughout Europe in the shadows and had been doing whatever they wanted, and this had blinded them to fact that they could be killed. Ushoran said it best later on.
"The Queen had taken us throughout Europe, and in those hundreds of years we had killed mountains of people, and stolen an endless amount of things. All this had been done in the shadows. In the secretive way of our lives, the Queen and the rest of them forgot that we could be killed."
Vashenesh fought by the side of the Queen, and he held the carriage for more then twenty minutes against nearly two hundred Trolloc, as the convoy was slowly wiped out he became more and more surrounded until finally during the end the Trollocs were slashing him on the back as he couldn't get around to fight all of them. Finally a large Trolloc came in and was able to defeat the severely weakened Vashenesh and kill him with a brutal slash across the neck which left him nearly decapitated. The Battle itself would end with the deaths of every vampire and human gaurd in the convoy except for the Queen and Hurcuso. When the Queen saw her beloved Vashenesh lying dead in front of her surrounded by dozens of Trolloc that were trying to kill her, she wept tears of blood. It is a very notable thing that in a battle that involved her husband, and much of her retinue she spent the entire post battle holding the body of Vashenesh and didn't even go looking for her husband Hercuso who had somewhat fled the battle in order to survive.
It was only out of luck that W'Soran arrived and was able to resurect Vashenesh that saved him from death, and Queen Neferata from madness.

| The End of the Vampire Court|
Did you think there would never be any consequences. It was always coming for you sister. This moment was always coming. The only thing I regret is that it took me this long to finally do what I should have done centuries ago.
The true start of the Weerhousen Civil War would begin with the return of Davina Denn who would return home alongside her knight guardian Hanzal of House Strom to Ravensburg. Davina Denn had spent years in the Kingdom of Gilneas as a lady in waiting and while there she meets with the King and he reveals that things are changing in Ravensburg as the agents he has sent into Weerhousen are having success in growing the rebellious movement and that soon he will send her back to Ravensburg to pave the way for the eventual Gilneas invasion of Weerhousen. Weeks following this she receives a letter from her brother stating that things are changing rapidly in Ravensburg and she must return home immediately of which she listens to immediately travelling by boat from Gilneas back to Ravensburg. Arriving back at Ravensburg where she is greeted at the gates of the city by several councilors of the city but no members of her family, but among the group is several Vampires of which when she sees them she is attracted to one of the group in the form of Fadil Heretee but clutches her necklace of Glaurung and follows the human Councillors to Ravens Castle. Moving towards the castle she is approached by one of the vampires of whom reveals herself to be Anai Heretee the wife of Fadil Heretee and tells Davina that when she is done seeing her family and meeting with her Councillors the three vampires require a meeting as well, and they do not wish to be waiting long. After a long confrontation with the three vampires Fadil reveals to her that a sickness has wracked the city killing many including several in her family, and without another word she storms off eventually running to the keep of her family. Arriving at the keep she is met by her uncle Marcel and her cousin Marcel of whom try to slow her but she continues running throughout the keep going off instinct and eventually reaching her fathers room where she finds her mother sitting on a chair overlooking her father of whom looks as pale as a ghost. Overcome with emotions she ignores the advise of her uncle and heeds the words of Ser Vincent Lephane, and the councillers and commands the raising of the army of Ravensburg in order to find the vampires in their midst and lock them away until she can make her decision on them. Following the imprisonment of Fadil, Anai, and Circe she would ignore the cries of her brother to stop what she was doing, and looking to the sky she realized that it was high noon and with the sun out at its near peak she would command the entire town to the streets with their hands out to show they were not wearing the day ring, and after finding several Vampires among the townfolk she imprisoned them as well before command the city guard go house to house leading to the capture of two more Vampires of whom she imprisoned all within the dungeons of Ravensburg. Davina Denn finishes writing a letter to her former family in the Kingdom of Gilneas detailing the changes in Weerhousen and that the time has come to intervene, and then following this her uncle knocks on the door and the two speak for some time about the happenings. Alongside her uncle she travels with her guards to visit Fadil, Circe, and Anai in the dungeons beneath the castle where she has a long conversation with them. While talking to them she is told by her guards of the arrival of several Vampires into Ravensburg in the form of Publius Tiferis, Zalika Merneith, Turgut Nur, and Lena Rehner of whom are in the city to reinforce Fadil's original party and Davina lies to Publius there leader about Fadil never arriving and this begins a confrontation when Lena doesn't believe the story and only the quick talking of Davina stops bloodshed, and seeing they are horribly outnumbered the three Vampires leave the city threatening to return with a larger group and wipe out Ravensburg. Before leaving Lena Rehner reveals that she was the one responsible for the murder of Davina's parents and overwhelmed with rage over this Davina pulls her wand out and fires a killing spell at Lena but Lena blocks the spell with her sword striking Zalika Merneith directly killing her instantly and causing the rest of the vampires to flee leaving behind Lena of whom tries to flee as well but Davina strikes her with a second spell leaving her unable to move. Following her conversation with Fadil she makes the decision to heed his words and hands the regency to her uncle while she travels by horse with a company of a hundred knights and men at arms towards the lands of the Strigi.
The next stage of the conflict arrives with the arrival of Davina Denn in Strigi where Ushoran Neferata is about to enter his coffin when he is interrupted by Amir Salam of whom tells him he needs to immediately come to the walls and following without question he arrives at the gates to find a large force of men at the gates with a women on horseback leading them.
