|Role||Minor God of Pain|
Angelo Ambronogi or as he was once known as Kargoth was known as a high ranking Knight of Dresdan, but in fact his birth is one far darker and insidious. Anglo Ambronogi is the son of the deceased Chaos God and Titan Neru of whom's death made him the Lord of the forces of Neru of whom he has turned into an insidious organization spread throughout western Europe. Kargoth has taken on the persona of a Chaos Agent of Slanaash while he buys time acumulating assets for the moment that he and his force of Djinn are ready to attack the lands of Sigmar in revenge for the fact that they were banished for hundreds of years. Kargoth had two children in the form of Marco, and Isabella Ambronogio of which Marco was his most trusted commander until the Fall of Koblenz led to his death, and Isabella Ambronogio has become the most trusted battle commander of Angelo following the death of Marco.
Angelo Ambronogi was born the son of the Titan Neru of whome was the founder of the now hidden and exiled race called the Djinn of whome he once looked like during his rise. During the Titan Civil War his father was destroyed and his people destroyed alongside him on the walls of Olympas, and only through the quick work of Angelo was the Djinn able to escape the Fade and enter Earth where they took no part in the First War on Earth because they were rebuilding their strength in the lands now known as Allemeni. Enyo would come to the assistence of the Frankish Pantheon when they went to war with the chaos god Kargoth in the war known as the End of the Frankish Pantheon. Following the defeat of the Pantheon she would be captured by Kargoth who now went as Angelo Ambronogio and ruled over a small kingdom called the Dutchy of Koblenz. As they prepared to invade the lands of Europe they were invaded by Sigmar of whome used Magi to summon a vast force within the mountains they were living and fought them for hundreds of years before eventually realizing he couldn't defeat Kargoth and so he was able to lock Kargoth in a small shielded portal by sacrificing himself in the process. For hundreds of years he remained trapped in the shield alongside his remaining Djinn, and would have been doomed to remain here forever if not for the unlikely intervention of a group of merchants. These merchants entered the mountain by mistake and were tricked by Kargoth into freeing them, and following this they were free in the mountains but he feared that Sigmar still lived so he left the mountains in search of what had happened since he was exiled. In this copasity he traveled to many lands under the alias of Angelo Ambronogi and during this time he took part in tournaments, and while at a tournament in Kizlev, he pretended to become a tool of the Chaos god Slanaash. For a long time he pretended to resist the call of Slanaash but now he openly recruits people to the side of Slanaash, and the danger is real and growing daily. He is now responsible for most noteably the rise of the Red Suns in Valeria under his protege Kevin Zegers, and in Dresdan he has born rise to the Forsaken Cult under Francis Munitz. All of these actions are meant to destabilize and damage the Kingdoms of humanity in central Europe in the guise of restablishing the dominance he wants for the Djinn who continue to rebuild themselves in the mountains of Kizlev. Following Dresdan he moves towards the Kingdom of Alcase one of the largest noble holdings in the north, and when he arrives there he begins to whisper in the ear of John Orsinio of whom longs for more power and takes the mantle of Chaos Knight in order to get what he wants. Angelo remains with the forces of John Orsinio longer then usual as he believes the destruction of Alcase to be of great importance and thus when John Orsinio rebels against the King Angelo remains with the forces of John Orsinio and takes part in the following conflict. Following his coruption of these three lands he moves southward towards Tevinter where he plans to corupt Lord Voldermorte but upon his arrival he is threatened by Death Eaters and despite killing them with ease he decides against meeting the Dark Lord and instead goes further north to the Kingdom of Welegund where he plans to corupt the kingdom and destablize the region.
Coming of the Old Ones
|You look around you and see life. That was because of them. Everything you have is because of them.|
The Old Ones had used the Lizardmen in order to administer much of what they knew was neccessary for the planet, but as time went by their schedules determined that they needed to leave the planet. The Old Ones knew their time on Earth would have to end but they wanted to make sure their world would be watched over. In order to leave behind something that would protect, guide, and further advance the denizens of the Earth. In order to do this they decided to create extremely powerful creations that would look over different areas based on the planet. The Old Ones created different Titans for different purposes, and with every piece of the lives of the mortals below looked after the world would advance in peace. The Titans would be given amazing powers that were nearly limitless within the region of Magi they also created called the Fade. Within the Fade they gave the Titans birth, and from this the Titans would become the vessels of the future goals of the Old Ones long after they would eventually leave the planet.
Birth of Angelo
Angelo Ambronogi was born the son of the Titan Neru of whome was the founder of the now hidden and exiled race called the Djinn of whome he once looked like during his rise. Kargoth and his father were perhaps some of the most reclusive of the forces of the Titans and they wandered inside their realm of the Fade for centuries and in this way Neru, Kargoth and the Djinn became a very mobile people that built their Fade to be like a vast land which they travelled across never staying in one place for long. As time went on Neru became interested with the goings on of the other Titans and it was during this time that Neru would become involved with Tzeneech.
| The Fade and the Titans|
We were supposed to protect this world. Not leave it in darkness.
Creation of the Fade
In order to construct most of the world the Old Ones had turned from science, and their own massive technology and had instead allowed their Slann to control the process by which the planet took its changing form. The Slann used untold Magi to shift continents, changing environments and many other things all with the use of their primitive Magi over the vast technology of the Old Ones. Because the Old ones had used so much Magi on the world the traces of it were sucked into a realm called the Fade, and left to fester under the protection of the Old Ones. With the Old Ones leaving they needed one of their Titans to protect and control the Fade.
|There are just no words to describe how beautiful things were before they left.|
The Old Ones Leave
With the safeguards believed to be in place the Old Ones, begin disassembling many of their cities on the Earth. This process was obviously to make sure the advanced nature of the Old Ones wasn't allowed to seep into the growth of the races of Earth, and the Titans were allowed to control this growth as per their creation. The process of taking apart their cities was one that they had done on an innumerable amount of occasions and because of this they were able to deconstruct their cities in a very short amount of time. With their cities gone, the Old Ones packed into their ships and set out into space to their next destination with little understanding of the emotional catastrophe they left behind due to their importance among the Lizardmen. With the Old Ones gone their favored race in the Lizardmen was initially shocked and in disarray as to what to do with themselves, but as the Old Ones knew they would the Slann took control of the situation and led the Lizardmen towards the path of enlightenment where they would act as the stewards of the planet. Other then the Lizardmen the only real effect that their departure had was that with them gone, their was no one truly watching the Titans and their successes and failures and because of this lack of attention the true fate of the Old One Tek would come into play.
As with all the other worlds the Old Ones had left behind without the Old Ones interference though the Titans should have simply been able to deflect any internal corruption through their internal device that made sure they never deviated from their assigned tasks but with the manipulation of Tek in place the entire scenario was made dramatically different. When the Old Ones had taken their leave they took Tek's clone with them, and Tek was left in his facility which was extremely deep inside an Old One facility on Iceland and had complete control over the entire facility. In the facility he watched as the world became the beautiful place that the Old Ones had wanted and he thus became extremely bitter that their plan was working. He went about finding a way to destabilize the situation in his off minutes and it was in this time that he formulated the devise which would manipulate Tzeneech into corruption.
Isolation of Neru
Following the departure of the Old Ones Hypnia and Hypnos would become extremely close forming the Djinn alongside Neru, and Kargoth and together the four would become quite isolated from the main grouping of Titans due to Neru being somewhat flawed in his control of his morality and driving the others into following him.
Neru found something odd but enjoyable in his time with Tzeneech, and it would be around the time he met with Tzeneech that he was reaching the end of his non-Chaotic side. As with most stories the time of the Noble Titans would end when Tzeneech the God of Magic, and sorcery managed to destory his protective shield. This meant that he existed without any shield against greed, coruption, or hate. These feelings creeped into him until eventually he became the First of the Chaos Gods. It is purely ironic that the ability to destroy his protective shield was created when the fallen Old One Tek begin his experimentation on the Titans. Tek believed that the Titans created an inbalance in the world and the only way to make the world into its natural state was to make the Titans act naturally. In order to do this he used his unimagineable technology to enter the Fade which was the domain of Tzeneech and while in the Fade he spread a kind of virus into the Fade which seeped into Tzeneech and placed questions into the Titan's mind. The virus allowed Tzeneech to understand the emotions that were supposed to be inhibited by his shield, and with these emotions he was able to destroy the shield completely which then led to these emotions spreading. Over time Tzeneech begin corrupting the other Titans, and by the time the Noble Titans learned what was happening nearly half the Titans were corupted. Because Tzeneech had such a long time with these emotions he had already begin affecting change amongst the Titans long before any civil war took place, and the members of the Titans that he corupted were the more powerful members of the Titans leading to the distinct advantages of the forces of Chaos during the War of fthe Gods.
Fall of Neru
"Slanaash spoke words of complete lies, and utter fabrications and my father ate it up. He was always a believer. Wanted to believe that there was a sensibility in each person he met, and it would be this naive behavior that doomed his honor. Perhaps he had made me to protect him from such moments, and if that is true I failed. If that wasn't the reason for my creation I still failed him, because he deserved better then for it to all end like that."
Neru remained uncorupted as the situation amongst the TItans and forces of Chaos begin to unravvel and it was during this time that he planned to hide the Djinn on Earth, but before he could do this he was approached by Slanaash of whome was sent by Tzeneech. Slanaash managed to find Kargoth, and Neru travelling throughout their part of the Fade, and in front of Kargoth he would menipulate Neru into joining the forces of Chaos. Kargoth at the time did not like this Slanaash but when his father decided to follow him he was quick to rally the Djinn and join his father as they moved against the Titans in the Titan Civil War.
The Eternity War
Main Article : Eternity War
| The Eternity War|
I'm sure beasts had fought before we sparked the Eternity War, but it wasn't until we got into their heads that the mortals truly understood the level of depravity they were capable of. We caused all of it.
The start of the Eternity War would begin with the corruption of the Trolloc of whom changed from their industrious, and noble ways when they interacted with the now corrupted Chaos God Khorne. At this time in history the Noble Titans were being torn in half but they didn't yet know that this was happening so they watched unknown as the Trolloc were corrupted by the Chaos God Khorne . Khorne offered their leaders great power in return for their loyalty to his beliefs. The Trolloc leaders knew nothing of this kind of evil, so they accepted his offer as genuine, and this would lead to their downfall and the downfall of the peace in Europe. With Khorne now in their midst he changed their peaceful culture into one of utter decadence and violence. The strongest rose to the top, and of all of these the strongest was the legendary Trolloc Mazrak of whom fell from being a priest of Elune before the corruption to becoming a mindless creature of violence. Mazrak would embroil the Trolloc into a massive civil war which would eventually lead to the complete control of the Trolloc Empire into the hands of Mazrak and by extension Chaos.
During the early stages of the Eternity War the forces of Chaos would also target the loyalist Argonian forces of Ind which had spread quite rapidly across Ind and were a real threat to the Chaos forces of the Charr if the fighting got intense in Cathay against the Murloc, and Furbolg. Thus in order to defeat the forces of the Argonians and make sure that the Murlocs of Cathay, and Furbolg would be fighting alone against the Charr it would be Slanaash, and Malekor who would convince Nurgle to destroy the Argonians with his diseases. Crafting the disease he would unleash it into the swamps of Ind and the Argonians would be devastated by the disease throughout the entirety of the Eternity War and during this time despite the best efforts of Hist nothing could be done to stop the ravages of the disease which was being spread by Nurgle. Hist in his desperation to save his people went to Nurgle and found him during his conversations to be completely callous and devoid of the laughter and humor that Nurgle had once been known for, and thus unable to get assistance from Nurgle the once dominant population of Argonians in Ind was completely wiped out leaving them dominant on the islands around Argonia only.
The War Begins
Main Article : The Eternity European War
The Eternity war was the first true conflict of Chaos, and it single highhandedly destroyed the three largest empires in Europe, and left the land ripe for the colonization of the Dwarves, and Elves, and later the Human race. As the Trolloc had become corrupted by the Chaos God Khorne the other Empire's of the world along with the Titans became aware of this change but thought it a different matter then the betrayal of Khorne. The Murloc, and the Woses continued on their peaceful path but unknown to them the Trollocs had been corupted by the God that created them in Khorne. Khorne had turned them to his service and instead of trade the Trollocs begin fashioning massive cities for the construction of huge armies with which to conquer Europe. From these cities they silently built these armies and then prepared to launch a massive suprise invasion of the Woses, and the Murlocs. As the cities of the Trollocs grew to incredible size the Noble Titans became fully aware that something had changed but were duty bound to not interfere, and instead believed that they could assist the nobler races by creating more races into the world. During this time the last of the creations of the Titans would enter the world of which some were the Trolls, and the Draenie. All the Titans did not sit idle during this time as many felt they needed to intervene and several Titans including Aphrodite, and Motrin engaged in an arming of the Woses so that they would survive the Eternity War. Also Neperune of whom created the Murloc was unstoppable as he openly engaged in assistance for his creation. In the years directly preceding the Eternity War the Woses would be dealt a harsh blow when their benefactor in the form of Jupiter would be killed by Khorne, and Tzeenech after she resisted their words of Chaos, and without Jupiter the Woses religion somewhat collapsed for a time leading them astray at exactly the moment they needed faith the most.
The initial invasion was devastating to the Woses, and the Murlocs but the Murlocs were especially damaged by the conflict as they were less prepared then the Woses due to their being the weakest of the three races individually. During this initial onslaught with the corruption of the Titan Nurgle the forces of the Asura would also join the Trolloc and attack the forces of the Woses and Murlocs but were noticeably not putting forth their entire forces. City by city the Chaos honored forces of the Trolloc overran the world and left the Murloc and Woses devastated in their wake. Khaz'Kul would take part in the Massacre of Xaesa where the Trolloc in the guise of negotiations would break this truce and massacred the large city of Xaesa killing several of the leading political leaders of the Woses and shattering much of their war effort. Eventually after centuries of fighting the Woses had lost a significant portion of their empire and began to lose the war, and defeat was only a matter of time. Following this it is said that the Woses made a deal with a Tree Spirit of whom came to their leadership saying that he would help them win the war if they would swear themselves to do a debt for the spirit once the war was done. This Tree Spirit was in fact the spirit of Malekor hidden in plain sight, whom wanted to undermine the efforts of Tzeneech and Khorne and assisted the Woses in defeating the Trolloc. With the assistance of the spirit of Malekor and his forces helping the Woses began to turn the tide back in their favor. With the spirits help they finally managed to take the fight to the Trolloc's part of the forest, and in a titanic battle the Woses destroyed the remaining Trolloc in a massive battle at the edge of the Drueden Forest. During this battle the forces of the Asura would also turn against the Trolloc and their betrayal of the Trolloc would cause the routing of an entire flank of the battle leading to the disastrous defeat and eventually Khorne cursing the Asurans. Following this victory Malekor's forces were unstoppable as he alongside the Woses and remaining Murloc pushed the Trolloc all the way back to their massive cities. It was in the cities that Malekor would create massive spells that literally destroyed the area of the cities and left the Trolloc in a state of destruction. The surviving Trolloc would flee to the forests, where they became nomadic, and their inner soul filled with fear of creating cities by the design of Malekor.
Capture of Khairne
Following Jupiters death Khorne would become quite boisterous in his discussion of murdering Jupiter, and while this was something that angered many of the Titans it would be her two sons Ulric, and Taal that would become enraged by the death of Jupiter and under the leadership of Ulric they would begin a plan to target Khairne for revenge against Khorne. Ulric, and Taal against the wishes of Zeus who forbade any action following the death of Jupiter would enact their plan when they entered the Trolloc Empire in secret and would capture Khairne bringing her back to their holdings in central Germania where they hid there trails to such an extent that no one discovered their involvement and it was in this position that they imprisoned Khairne with Taal becoming her personal jailer.
Invasion of Albion
Main Article : Trolloc Invasion of Albion
During the fighting of the Eternity War it would be Khorne who personally led his Trolloc Empire onto the island of Albion where he targeted the island for destruction due to the relatively large number of Titans on the island and their loyal following there. The Trollocs would make their initial landing in Kent where they were resisted by Ugret of whom commanded a desperate defense of the shore hoping to hold them off long enough for the rest of the Albion Pantheon to gather their forces for the real battle to come. Despite Ugrets best attempts she would be defeated at the Battle of Kent and despite surrendering she would be brutally executed and all her forces killed by the insanity of Khorne who no longer truly existed as he once did. Following the initial invasion of the Trollocs into Albion it would be Ingri, alongside her Albion Pantheon that would lead the forces of Albion in resisting the invasion but despite stoic defenses and several large victories she was pushed back mile by mile northward towards Helms Deep. As Helms Deep came under siege by the forces of Khorne it was Nurgle that intervened in the fighting joining with Khorne to assist in destroying the city, and while Lahmfada held Helms Deep it was Ingri that traveled with Ailpean to Olympus where they traveled to beg Zeus for assistance. Ingri who was close friends with Metis the lover of Zeus believed that this relationship and bringing proof would be more then enough in order to gain the support of Zeus, and thus as she and Ailpean traveled to Olympus the two were filled with hope.
Plea for Help
Despite bringing proof of what was happening Zeus was unwilling to intervene and thus Ingri returned without any real assistance but led the Albion forces in the Battle of Helms Deep (Eternity War). After Zeus was unwilling to assist Ingri it was Zeus's lover Metis that secretly followed Ingri back to Albion and travelling to Helms Deep despite all titans being commanded to not do this she rejected this command and having seen demons and Trollocs fighting there she returned to Olympus with a captured Trolloc of whom she believed would prove to Zeus of the involvement of Khorne. Instead of proving the guilt of Khorne her actions would be seen by Zeus as a betrayal and thus with Poseidan in the room and after a long argument with Metis it was Zeus that would kill her and then lie about her death stating that she had fled Olympus and had no idea where she went and forbade any discussion on her again as she was labeled a traitor. While they had not gained the support of the loyalists of Zeus during their time in Olympus it was Ailpean that was approached by Tzeneech of whom remained in Olympus as no one had discovered him as the ringleader, instead believing that Khorne was the first of these chaos gods. Tzeneech would destroy the shield on Ailpean and corrupted him with fear and anger leading to Ailpean returning to Albion with his grandmother a completely changed man. While at first during the fighting the defenses held and Lahmfada even killed one of the children of Khorne the betrayal of Ailpean who had become disillusioned and easy pickings to Tzeneech led to the near collapse of the defenses of Helms Deep. Ingri would be killed by Khorne but before the final blow could fall on the fortress Khorne and Tzeenech abandoned the attack in order to deal with a massive Asura attack in central Europe leaving the traitors under Ailpean to fight alone at Helms Deep.
Albion Civil War
Following Khorne abandoning the fight it was Ailpean that took control, but the conflicted recently corupted Chaos Titan was unwilling to totally turn against his family in the Albion Pantheon, and his conflicted leadership would come to ahead following the arrival of the Khorne luietenant Khaz'Kul. Khaz'Kul would leave the fighting in the Fade to return to Albion at the behest of Khorne and returning to Helms Deep he joined Ailpean in continuing the assault on the fortress. After Khaz'Kul begin to summon demons to support the war it was Ailpean that had a break from his coruption and would lead his own forces in a massacre of the Trollocs at Helms Deep and during this massacre Khaz'Kul and Ailpean would fight with Ailpean killing Khaz'Kul. Now having turned on Chaos Ailpean would approach the defenders and realizing that his coruption had changed him permently he would convinse his family to kill him which his son Lylr would be the one to mercy kill him.
Burning of Ygdrassil
Main Article : Burning of Ygdrassil
Despite remaining neutral due to the words of their King Hircine it was the Treekin that would be attacked during the Eternity War by the forces of Chaos who seeing the threat they posed would launch a massive assault on Ygdrassil leading to the Burning of Ygdrassil and the all but end of the global Treekin nation.
Asurian Civil War
Main Article : Asurian Civil War
Kyliss would following the Dance of Lirith find herself increasingly overcome by emotions and in this corruption she went to her beloved mathlann in an attempt to save herself, but by the time she got to him she had changed dramatically and Mathlann refused to help her instead banishing her from Ulthuan. Kyriss having been rejected by Mathlann fought during the Asurian Civil War but was extremely reluctant and this reluctance turned to outright resistance when the Chaos aligned forces begin summoning demons to join their side and she was able to use what little strength she had left to secretly betray her forces feeding information to her cousin Isha.
Titan Civil War
Main Article : Titan Civil War
|We were meant to protect this world, not destroy it.|
Following the Luna War of Conquest, and the wider events of the Eternity War the time of hiding the existence of evil within the Titan's ranks was over, and in such a brief time the two sides met in the Fade and the Titans attempted to understand the purpose of this group. The actions of Melekor on Luna and the imprisonment of Vongrith on Luna by Melekor coupled with Khorne's outright violent outbursts during the Eternity War and the moral failings of many other Titans had made this secret known. While imprisoned it was Vongrith that was visited by Tzeneech and was tricked into believing that his siblings had forgotten about him and were not coming and with this belief it was Vongrith that allowed himself to be corrupted by Tzeenech and thus when his siblings did force his release it was Vongrith who had become a secret member of the Chaos forces. The imprisonment of Vongrith would become a major problem as his brother Ursonoc marshaled massive forced and threatened invasion of Luna if Vongrith was not returned to him immediately. Realizing the danger of the situation it was Tzeneech who forced the Chaos Titans in his ranks to agree to a meeting at the fortress of Olympus where he would speak with Zeus and outwardly attempt to find a peace between the two sides. The meeting took place between Zeus, Ursonoc, Ares, and Neperune on the noble side of things while Malekor, Slanaash, and Tzeenech arrived for Chaos and this meeting was going to be judged by Nike of whom as the goddess of victory would decide the winning case of the two parties. As they arrived it was almost clear from the beginning that things had changed as the once High Elven form of Slanaash had changed dramatically, while Tzeenech as well barely resembled his host race in the Arakhora. Despite these obvious physical changes Zeus would attempt to discuss the matters but they came to quickly understand due to Slanaash revealing it to them that Khorne, Nurgle and many others were now barely capable of containing their personal rage, and when Slanaash openly threatened the life of Neperune it was Zues that would send Malekor, Slanaash, and Tzeenech away in horror at what they had become. Sending them away it was Vongrith who remained behind and was escorted back to his Charr on Earth by his brother Ursonoc and sister Ophiel of whom in their joy to see their brother did not recognize that he was utterly changed.
The first blow came when the violent Trolloc of Khorne attacked the Titan homeland of Olympas in a massive battle that caused the deaths of many Titans and several of the more bloodthirsty of the Chaos Gods. Khorne would amass to himself a massive force of Trolloc and without the consideration of overall goals he would recruit several other Chaos Titans including Laran, and two of Khornes sons and together they smashed through the lightly defended Emerald Gate massacring the unprepared Titans within, and nearly reaching the Palace of Olympus but they were halted by a stiff resistance put up by Neperune, and Yor. Following this resistance Khorne would be pushed out of the city by the arrival of Ares who was able to battle him to beyond the Emerald Gate but Laran and the two sons of Khorne were not as lucky both being killed alongside nearly the entire Trolloc army. Alongside this massacre was the capture of the daughter of Tzeneech in the form of Aviana of whom was captured by the arrival of Hermes and taken within the prison of Olympas where she was watched over by Hermes for much of this time. Following this initial assault by Khorne it was Zeus in the Palace that would order the closing of all portals into Olympus and while this broke off contact with all Titans outside of Olympus it also put an end any attempts to get into Olympus by bypassing the main defences. As the siege of Olympas went on the forces of the other main Chaos Gods found themselves free to do what they wanted as Khorne was basically on his own holding the Titans in place. Nurlge joined the siege and brought his large forces to bear against the fortress of Tarterus where he besieged the massive fortress and put a large amount of fear in the Titans that their rear would be vulerable due to the fall of Tarterus. Despite these short term successes the overall first assault of Khorne was a strategic failure as he had revealed the goals of the Chaos Titans before they were ready and also ended several plots the Chaos leadership had to take over Warp Portals to get inside Olympus.
Thunderlands Civil War
Main Article : First Thunderlands Civil War
As the forces of Chaos had failed in their initial attempt to get inside Olympus due to the failures of Khorne it was Slanaash that would move against the so called Mountain Kings when he targeted Odin, and Vendriel for corruption as they both had portals within their cities which allowed for the movement into Olympas from the undefended center of the city. In Odin they saw little hope of corruption so they moved onto Vendriel who was ripe for corruption as he was in a secondary role to his brother and also silently loved his brothers wife Freyja giving Slanaash ample room to work his way into the soul of Vendriel. Vendriel would foolishly ignore the words of Odin who advised him not to meet with Slanaash as he had not and instead listened to the words of Slanaash who told him the story thus dooming his shield and allowing the emotions and anger to come to the surface for Vendriel. Now corrupted Vendriel begin changing his city of Uldum from the old version to a Chaos version where demons walked freely among the city, and despite being challenged by his children he would not listen to reason, but also would not allow the main chaos forces to use his portal. Following his corruption the once constant contact between Odin and Vendriel ended and this troubled Odin who would after many failed attempts to reach his brother would travel to Uldum with many Valkyrie and his wife Freyja in order to talk to his brother in the belief that they would go to the Fade and help their father in the war. When he arrived he was shocked to see the changes in Uldum. It had been some time since he'd been there and the once gleaming white city was now stained purple and the old guards, and people had been replaced by demons and creatures of nightmares. Odin would enter the throne room of Vendriel and demand to know what had happened and his brother told him that he had heard the call of the true word and it told him of the true meaning of life, and that the goals of the Titans were no longer his goals. Vendriel begged his brother to assist him as he was going to assail the Fade from within the mighty city of Olympas. Odin refused and a battle broke out between the two which only ended when Odin and his Valkyrie, along with Freyja escaped the city and made their way back to Ulduar.
The Siege of Ulduar
Main Article : First Siege of Ulduar
Odin successfully returned to Ulduar where he rallied his forces for the coming fight declaring his immediate support for the Noble Titans and ending all suspense whether he would fight his brother. Leading his armies himself he would prepare to march against Uldum but was surprised by the arrival of massive Ape army led not by his brother but instead by his brothers son Meomil of whom put Ulduar under siege. Aelsir would surrender during the Siege of Ulduar after she watched her husband Vendriel send their son Meomil and hundreds of other Apes to their death in a pointless attempt to show their violence and resolve, and this act made her realize that Vendriel was lost.
The Battle of Uldum
Main Article : First Battle of Uldum
Following the failure at the Siege of Ulduar it was Vendriel that would be forced due to his poor military skills to fight a two front war with his main army fighting the forces of the Dwarves and their Pantheon in the north, while his other forces were slowly pushed back inch by inch by the forces of Valhalla. Finally the forces attacking the Dwarves were defeated and as they retreated back to Uldum they were caught between the avenging Dwarves and the forces of Valhalla and the were massacred in their thousands. Following this disaster Slanaash sent one of his brightest lieutenants to the battle in the form of Helester who took control of the forces of Vendriel and begin to lead a skilled defence of the mountains of Olympus. As the Titan Civil War ended in victory for Chaos the leadership caste that had been built by Helester returned to the Fade so that they could receive reinforcements to reengage their attack on the Dwarves and Valhalla. While they left Vendriel made a play to re control Olympus through the creation of a group of Olympians called the Vanir. The Vanir would be utterly loyal to him, and when Helester returned with a massive army he once again moved north and put Vedriel in command of the defence of his rear which should have been easy with the huge forces he had at his disposal. Instead of doing this Vendriel silently engaged Valhalla in battle, and would be destroyed on the steps of Valhalla by Odin and his commanders. With Vendriel defeated the forces of Valhalla pushed south and sacked Olympus putting it under their control, and it was in this moment that Helester realized he had failed to destroy the Dwarves and turned his forces around and split the army into two with his side attacking Valhalla, and a smaller force attacking Olympus. Helester was much reduced and was defeated and killed by the forces of Valhalla while his army attacking Olympus was also destroyed meaning the end of the attackers.
First Holy Charr Invasion
Main Article : First Holy Charr Invasion
Vongrith returned to his people and secluded himself and with the siege of Olympus having been launched he was allowed to be alone and in this situation he would become overcome with a sense that his entertainment was nothing more then an illusion and begin to hate it leading to him changing his people and forcing home every Charr from across the world where they returned to find the Charr being changed into a military engine.
Fall of Ursonoc
As the forces of Chaos had expanded, and their control of the area around Olympus grew they had attempted to corrupt Ursonoc one of the more powerful of the Noble Titans, and one of the more notable Noble Titans not within Olympus. Tzeneech went to Timbermaw Hold alongside Slanaash and the two attempted to convince him to remove his shield through the use of every manner of Magi, persuasion that they could possibly think of, but found that Ursonoc was discusted by the betrayal that Tzeneech spoke of. Tzeneech realizing that he couldn't convinse Ursonoc attempted to destroy him, and thus would battle him within the palace of Timbermaw. The three would fight for hours, and as it went on Tzeneech summoned to him Triton who also attempted to defeat Ursonoc, but Ursonoc was soon joined by his children including his most celebrated child in Vogun. Vogun would manage to turn the tide against Tzeneech who was forced to flee the fortress of Timbermaw. As Tzeneech fled the city alongside Triton and Slanaash he would poison the mind of Vogun.
With his poison running in Vogun, the son of Ursonoc found himself filled with jealously over the fact that he felt his father didn't respect his power. As this built up in the days of the actual Titan Civil War the father and son of Ursonoc, and Vogun fought side by side but as they returned to Kalimdor to rearm their forces Vogun's madness would finally bring everything crashing down. Vogun would ambush Ursonoc while he was supposed to be guarding him in his meditation and would destroy the powerful Titan. Vogun would blame the death on Zeus, and through this took control of a large part of the Fubolg army and brought it through into the Fade. Once into the Fade they would destroy a large section of the western palace region of Olympas where they believed Ursonoc was in complete control of. This attack would only be stopped when Poseidon himself entered the fray and battled Vogun nearly killing him. Defeated Vogun would not retreat and instead sent the remainder of his forces towards the main Chaos force so they would survive and then charged the walls of Olympas where it is said he died pierced by thousands of arrows as he screamed out for Zeus to face him.
First Siege of Tarterus
For Malekor the time to do some real damage to the Titans was now and he found the perfect oppurtunity when the Titan Neperune snuck out of Olympas on a mission to stop Nurgle from destroying the powerful fortress Tarterus which held in place the weaker section of Olympas from being able to be attacked. Malekor watched and hunted the young Titan as he led his powerful Murloc forces towards the Army of Nurgle. Neperune caught Nurgle unaware and was nearing the Chaos God himself when his army was blindsided by Melekor's massive Draenei forces. There was no escape for Neperune and he and his entire army were destroyed on the field which left one of the most important commanders in the Titan army dead and a sizeable portion of the army in tatters. The Twin Titans Morkha, and Ghorka had rallied there forces when Neperune had left Tarterus and by this point they were outside the walls of Tarterus and witnessing the defeat of Neperune they would move their forces within augmenting the defences.
Ghorka, and Morkha would fight during the Battle of Olympus where they defended the walls alongside their personal Greenskin forces and their children and it was during this fighting that Ghorka would be killed by their fellow First Generation Titan brothers in the form of the fallen Hyperion, and Hynos of whom infiltrated the fortress of the Crystal Spire and killed Ghorka, and Morka alongside several of their children.
With Neperune, and the twin Titans in Ghorka and Morkha dead the defenders of Tarterus lost their most important defenders and a sizeable force so the thought by them was very much that they were in serious trouble. With a weak spot appearing Slanaash brought his mighty Elven forces to bear against the fortress alongside Nurgle, and Malekor's forces and as the walls of the fortress appeared ready to collapse the defenders were saved by the arrival of Imperius who brought his gleaming knights and was able to defeat Nurgle in combat causing the retreat of his forces and the momentary ending of the seige. By the time the Chaos forces had regrouped the defenses had been trippled and the fortress of Tarterus appeared unshakable.
Duel with TzeneechAs the siege of Tarterus and Olympas wore on the first Chaos God in Tzeneech wandered the battlefield attempting to find an outlet for his aggression following his failure against Ursonoc, and as he wiped town after town off the map of the Fade he was finally confronted by Ares the God of War for the Titans. Ares was beyond skilled, and he led his army of mysterious creatures against the forces of Tzeneech. The two fought battle after battle but each time Ares came out victorious despite the massive numbers advantage that Tzeneech had. This begin to irritate Tzeneech to no end, and thus he brought all of his forces to bear against Ares forces in what would be a massive battle over the town of Elis. As the two sides met the forces of Tzeneech outnumbered the strange army of Ares by nearly 15-1 but when the dust settled after the initial assault the forces of Tzeneech had been badly damaged, and the defenders were barely injured. As his forces begin to waver the Chaos God Tzeneech himself entered the battle and taunted the mighty Ares to fight him on the field. The two gods battled their way through the opposing armies until they were face to face, and when they met they immediatly begin fighting. The two were equally matched but as Tzeneech watched his army desinigrated around him as the forces of Ares massacred his army. After days of fighting Ares stepped back and laughed at Tzeneech, and when Tzeneech looked around he realized that his army was destroyed and he was now completely surrounded. Ares prepared to deliver the death blow but the massively powerful Tzeneech teleported himself to his personal lair leaving Ares without his complete victory but he had destroyed one of the largest forces that the forces of Chaos had.
Second Siege of Tarterus
Coruption of Hypnos
Hypnos would fight for the forces of the Noble Titans during the Titan Civil War, and fought bravely alongside his daughter Hypnia during the initial assault on Olympus, but during the Second Siege of Tarterus he was captured by the forces of Chaos and corupted.
Attack on Diamond Gate
Neru brought his forces to fortress capital of Olympas where all the Titans had been born, and by this point the fortress of Tarterus had fallen and all that was left was Olympas and a few other fortresses, and Khorne had been fighting over and over in attempts to break the siege but each time the defenders were saved by the intervention of Poseidan, Ares, and Zeus of whom stood resolute on the walls of Olympas, and its magical Diamond Gate. At this point with stalemate setting in Slanaash went to Neru one more time and decided to have Neru move against the Diamond Gate with his massive forces, and use the Magi of his people to break the Diamond Gates. It's unknown if Slanaash believed this was possible but Kargoth now believes that he did this as a means of killing another of the Chaos Gods for his enjoyment, and hates him because of it. Neru would listen and alongside several other Demi-Titans would move against the Diamond Gate. Kargoth, Neru, and the Djinn would wipe out the defenders outside the gate and begin summoning spells to destroy the Gate all the while taking huge losses from the defenders all across the Gate, and the wall. As the spell though reached its zenith the Titan Ares and the Angiris Hosts most elite forces summoned out front of the Diamond Gate and battled the Djinn. Seeing his force dying around him Neru would challenge Ares to battle, but in an act of great insult Ares would reject the offer and continue massacring the Djinn summoning the spell.
"I believed him to be invisible for my entire excistence so seeing him fall was a moment of incredible horror. He turned around as the blade sliced through his chest, and his eyes looked full of regret, and horror, and I made a full bee line towards in the hopes I could save him. As I moved forward as if it was happening in slow motion his body begin to move away like sand blowing in the wind. By the time I reached him grabbed for him but nothing remained of him except the dust from him."
As neru chased him around the battlefield the Archangel Imperius would step forward and duel him. Neru must have believed him a joke, but after only a few minutes of fighting Imperius layed him low, and destroyed Neru forever. With the death of Neru the force of Djinn became overcome with fear, and Ares, and the Angiris Host made their retreat through the Diamond Gate leaving the rest of the force to be slowly destroyed by the defenders on the walls. In a moment of leadership Kargoth would gather the leadership across the battlefield of the Djinn and lead them off the field of battle towards their old home in the Fade. As they fled the battlefield they were harassed by the forces of Chaos of whom did not want them to retreat as they were close to breaking the Diamond Gate and basically wanted them to die for a little more damage on the gate. Either way Kargoth managed to get the rest of the Djinn out, and they would make their way to their home in the Fade. When they reached it Kargoth knew they couldn't remain so they made their way to the Earth where he planned to hide his people in the same way his father had hid inside the Fade. Kargoth and the Djinn would decide quickly that they would take no part in the First War on Earth because they were rebuilding their strength in the lands now known as the Kizlev.
With the siege dragging on but not fully capable of being won due to the overwhelming defences the other Chaos Gods attempted to make the Titans leave the safety of their fortress by overwhelming entire corners of the Fade and in this way taunting the Titans to stop them from unleashing hell on the planet. With the threat completely real the Titans mobilized all their strength and attempted to break the siege, but discovered that the Chaos Gods completely outnumbered them and they were swiftly beaten back into Olympas with heavy losses.
With the Titans beaten thourghally but still holding the inpenatrable Olympas the Chaos Gods moved their plans to unleashing their massive armies on the planet Earth.
End of the Frankish Pantheon
Main Article : End of the Frankish Pantheon
Enyo would come to the assistance of the Frankish Pantheon when they went to war with the chaos god Kargoth in the war known as the End of the Frankish Pantheon.
Following the defeat of the Pantheon she would be captured by Kargoth who now went as Angelo Ambronogio and ruled over a small kingdom called the Dutchy of Koblenz.
As they prepared to invade the lands of Europe they were invaded by Sigmar of whome used Magi to summon a vast force within the mountains they were living and fought them for hundreds of years before eventually realizing he couldn't defeat Kargoth and so he was able to lock Kargoth in a small shielded portal by sacrificing himself in the process.
For hundreds of years he remained trapped in the shield alongside his remaining Djinn, and would have been doomed to remain here forever if not for the unlikely intervention of a group of merchants. These merchants entered the mountain by mistake and were tricked by Kargoth into freeing them, and following this they were free in the mountains but he feared that Sigmar still lived so he left the mountains in search of what had happened since he was exiled.
"There are a thousand hacking at the branches of evil to one who is striking at the root. I am the root of the problem, but the forces of so called Order are too busy attacking eachother, and my pawns to realize this. It is for this reason I shall outlast them all and bathe in the glory of Slanaash."
For years Angelo spent his skill fighting at the head of tournaments and while he would never be deemed the greatest fighter he was skilled enough to continue fighting in tournaments and he was able to make a decent living off the rewards. This continued for years and ended suddenly when he went to a tournament in Kizlev. At the tournament the reward for victory was an ancient sword of immense power. When Angelo looked at the sword he couldn't help himself and so he moved forward and touched the handle, and the moment after he did this he heard whispers in his mind telling him to do whatever was neccessary to win the tournament. He was able to use his skill to get to the final rounds but he saw who he was up against and realized he couldn't win. With this in mind the whispers returned and he found himself nearly uncontrollably moving towards the tent of his other competitors in the middle of the night. While in this coma state where he could see everything but not control himself he went from tent to tent killing the other competitors. The following morning he feared for his life, but when he went to the tournament stands he discovered the news of the others deaths had spread but a group of slaves had been blamed for the deed, and he was crowned the winner. When he was handed the sword it was as if all the emotional termoil he had over the murders was gone, and all that remained was the sword.

As the armies of Alcase were fighting off the Orcs another problem quickly made itself known. John Orsinio had never forgiven his brother for the death of his family and in blind hate he now believed he was the one right for King of Alcase. In his desire for this position he became utterly fixated on growth. He first went to The Empire who begin providing him with funds, and mercenary troops with which to bolster his froces, but it was the continued relationship that he had with Angelo Ambronogi that changed everything for him. When John met Angelo, he found someone that finally understood how brilliant he was, atleast who made him think this. In truth Angelo spent nearly a year in John's entourage and during this time was able to turn John towards the worship of Chaos.
The Second Army
Now a desiple of the Chaos God Tzeneech due to the influence of Angelo who had intended him to worship his god Slanaash but found John didn't like what Slanaash offered. John begin to gain gifts of his new god, and soon after this no longer felt that he needed Angelo and had him sent away in favor of the Chaos Knights that now grouped themselves in the inner part of the Second Army Camp. As this continued Angelo remained with John, as his dark master Slanaash believed it was through this man that all the goals of their overall campaign would be seen through.
John knew that he had a massive army with him, and in order to grow he needed to make sure that this army didn't run around blabbing about what he was doing, so he grouped his most loyal Chaos Knights inside his inner camp which none were allowed in, and then he built up a growing number of Cultists west of the camp. When the cultists were large enough in numbe he begin putting the Second army under the control of his Knights who begin executing those trying to leave. He quickly confiscated much of the weapons and armor of the Second army and gave the remainder a choice of either joining Chaos or remaining in the camp as his hostage. Many chose to join chaos but the vast majority did not and thus he had a huge problem in that their was a very large army that he was keeping under gaurd and if he became violent with them before he had numbers then there would be a riot that he would not be able to put down. By this time Angelo had risen to the second most powerful position and was becoming immensly powerful towards the way in which Alcase was going to move.
