Rise of the Sanguin Bloodline
| A Son and Daughter|
I never thought I would take a progeny. Never thought for one second that I would turn another person into this creature we are now. Looking at you and your sister so close to death I knew I had to save you. Even if by saving you I doomed you both.
While the Vampire Court of Lahmia was staying in Greece planning their next moves it would be the anger that many felt over their defeat in Lahmia and being forced to live in a foreign land that would lead to much of the court including Angelica Neferata to start losing themselves in the blood lust they felt. As this violence escalated and Godrick and the other sensible Vampires of the Lahmia court saw no other options it would be Godrick that left the court in disgust for their behavior and traveled northward where he stayed for some time in Denmark. Living there for decades he was present as the flow of refugees started flowing in as a response to the Rise of the Andals and the exodus of the Vandal, and Goth people from Norway and Swedan. Seeing this and wanting to do something about what was going on he would travel into Swedan where following the flow of information in southern Swedan he eventually found his way into Northern Swedan where he would enter the court of the northern Vandal nation known as the Kingdom of Oland.
Fighting with the Vandals
Main Article : Fall of Oland
Entering the Kingdom of Oland he would discover the truth behind the stories being told in southern Swedan as he discovered the lands were being assaulted by the forces of Chaos who had taken control of the Andals, and the Andal nation known as the Empire of Kvenland. In this position he would enter the court of Oland where he became a powerful adviser to King Ulfrik Oland of whom he was honest with about being a Vampire and in this manner Ulfrik would begin to reveal the truth behind the situation with Kvenland. Describing to Godrick how months priot to Godrick's arrival the Andals of Kvenland had sent priests to his city trying to convert them to the worship of Chaos Gods and when he rejected this the Andals begin to be openly hostile. Wanting to resist the forces of Chaos due to his memory of Nagash, and everything evil in his life having been caused by the Chaos worshiping Nagash he would swear himself to the service of Ulfrik. Growing to trust Godrick it would be Ulfrik that would give command of a small group of Oland knights and using these forces Godrick would deliver several victories which led to his promotion by Ulfrik to the command of a significant portion of the Oland army to Godrick of whom fought with immense skill against the Andals delivering them two major defeats during his command.
Following a third defeat of the Andals by the army of Godrick the leader of the Andals in the form of Jannok would travel to the front with two of her children in the form of Dannok, and Valenia at the head of a massive army nearly two hundred thousand strong. The Vandal forces were no more then thirty thousand and exhausted from the constant fighting there moral was destroyed by the coming of this massive army, but Godrick was able to maintain some semblance of order during this time keeping the front from completely collapsing. Following the arrival of this massive army three of the petty kingdoms south of Oland would send forces northward now seeing the threat to themselves augmenting the forces of Oland to nearly sixty thousand but their numbers were still nothing compared to the numbers of the Andals. Jannok would split her forces into two attacking Oland from two opposite sides of the country forcing Godrick to split his army into two with himself leading the smaller army of twenty thousand and King Ulfrik leading the larger army against Dannok.
Eric Oland would be within the capital of Oland when his father suffered a devastating defeat against the forces of the Andals in the north and with the Oland army crushed and no longer able to defend the capital the Andals overran the defenses sacking the city and the palace where Eric had lived his entire life. Despite finally fighting against the Andals leading the towns defense during its final hour he would be defeated by the overwhelming numbers of Andals and lay mortally wounded beside his murdered sister and mother, and it was in this position where he was discovered by Godrick of whom had promised Eric's father he woulds save his son, and did this by turning the mortally wounded Eric into a Vampire.
Hearts and Minds
While her family was gone Rowena was the regent of the Andals and she would become the target of both sides of the Titan conflict when Odin sent his daughter Siggi and on his command she would travel into the lands of the Andals where she would become the voice of reason for the "Daughter of Flemeth" Jannok's daughter Rowena of whom was also being targeted by a Chaos agent, but Siggi would win in this battle allowing Rowena to remain uncorrected. With Rowena uncorupted she would spend the time as regent silently sending resources and support to the Kingdom of
The End of Jannok
Following the destruction of the Vandal Kingdom of Oland the lands of Swedan were basically open to the Invasion of the Andals, but for Jannok her role in the killings was too much and she was emotionally devastated by what she had caused including most painful of all being the complete moral loss of her son, and the increasingly declining morality of her daughter Valenia while they had been fighting. Returning to the capital of the Andals following the defeat of the Kingdom of Oland it was Jannok that would come to speak to her daughter Rowena of whom she sensed still retained her morality, and together after this discsussion it was Rowena that introduced her mother to Siggi. begin making plans to change the Andals back to their non-Chaos leaning religions. Supported by her two daughters Jannok would believe she had secretly put this plan in place, but shortly before it was to move forward she would be confronted in the Palace grounds of her kingdom by Flemeth and her son, and following a battle between the group it would Flemeth that took Jannok away leaving Dannok in command of the Andals, while Valenia, and Rowena would flee southward
Last Stand of Upsal
Main Article : Fall of Upsal
The Kingdom of Upsal had been one of the three petty kingdoms which has sent aid to Oland during the invasion of the forces of the Andals, and thus the people of Upsal were aware of the consequences of the defeat of Oland, and in this way many in Upsal had begun fleeing southward including the Upsal royal family and most of the nobility leaving the army severly depleted, and thus allowing the Andals to move basically wherever they chose. The capital of the Kigndom of Upsal was the town of Upsal and it was here where Eric, and Godrick arrived and arriving there they discovered the town was preparing to fight in what amounted to a terrible last stand as they were horribly outnumbered by the coming Andals but Prince Leopold Dorginvin was unwilling to abandon the capital.
Travelling southward following the meeting with Jannok it was Eric, and Godrick that would come upon the village of Nora Vonhesha and staying there for the night before making there way the final way to the capital of the larger southern petty Kingdom of Tonsul. Staying the night he and Eric would be within the village when it was assaulted by a vanguard force from the forces of the Andals of whom were still busy ransacking Oland but small groups were not moving southward. Filled with hatred over the deaths of his family Eric would refuse to retreat and Godrick was unwilling to leave him so the two would remain and fight alongside the Vandal defenders which led to them destroying the Andal force but following the battle Nora would be found dying and Godrick would take pity on her turning her into vampire and taking her with himself and Eric following this going southward.
Denmark Civil War
Main Article : Denmark Civil War
As the non-Chaos aligned Germans begin fleeing Norway, and Swedan the main route of their escape outside of those who could find boats was through Denmark where the Imperium of Germania put in place a directive that the province of Denmark was to assist in their retreat and assist in them moving south where the goal was to overwhelm Central Europe with large amounts of Germans. This flow of Germans southward would continue for some time unopposed as thousands upon thousands of Germans escaped the Chaos Proselytism and made their way through Denmark, but the flow would grind to a halt when Flemeth entered the region of Denmark and targeted House Glusburg the most powerful of the merchant families of Copenhagen for corruption. Entering Copenhagen Flemeth would find little moral problems with the family especially its lord in the form of Alf Glusburg of whom was a fanatic when it came to resisting Chaos and was closely supported by several Sigmar Priests of whom kept Flemeth from ever really being able to get close to Alf. Unable to corrupt the leadership of House Glusburg she prepared to move on when the return of Isabel Glusburg, and her brother Theis Glusburg led to Flemeth taking another road when she was able to get close to the two siblings. Playing on their weakenesses she would fully corrupt both of them leading to their secret "'suicides" of which following this Isabel became a "Daughter of Flemeth" while Theis became one of the Dark Men.Using Theis, and Isabel Flemeth was able to have them murder their father and without his presence she was able to have her agents commit atrocities throughout Copenhagen specifically targeting the Church of Sigmar of whom were devestated by these attacks. Now in control of Copenhagen Flemeth would begin charging massive fees to the Vandals to slow their progress, and when this didn't fully work she had Isabel deploy the forces of her family into south-western Swedan where they pushed back the retreating Germans. This was against the commands of the Emperor of whom at the time was Mandred Gausser and was much the same as Alf Glusburg in that he was a fanatical believer in Sigmar and for this reason when Mandred discovered what was happening in Denmark he hosted a Great Blot of the Imperium of Germania and despite agents of Flemeth going to the Blot they were unable to stop Mandred of whom instigated the Denmark Civil War. Leading a massive army of Sigmar fanatics and the state forces of Bavaria, Hannover, Prussia, and the Lowlands he would invade Denmark gaining the support of most of the population and putting Copenhagen under siege. As Copenhagen remained under siege it was the forces of Odin who came to the city and led by Tyr and his lovers Tola, and Signy they would hunt for Flemeth who realizing they had arrived begin to plan for her retreat out of the city. Before Flemeth was able to flee it was Tyr who found Isabel and alongside Tola and Signy was able to defeat her in combat and before Flemeth could arrive with her forces to try and help Isabel it was Tyr who was able to remove some of the corruption on Isabel. Following this Tyr and his wives would leave the city and move to the army of Mandred Gausser planning to assist him in finishing the siege, but they left behind a changed Isabel who with a shred of free will would realize the plans of Flemeth were going to leave her family destroyed and would go to her youngest brother Christian Glusburg who was just a baby and take him north of Copenhagen where she used Magi to construct a hidden vault known as the Vault of Glusburg for him to stay in and then placing her brother in a Magi coma she returned to Copenhagen. Flemeth would flee the city with Isabel, but left Theis behind of whom tried defending the city but at this time the work of Godrik, and his children could not be resisted and they were able to rally the remaining Priests of Sigmar to their side, and confronted Theis in the Palace of Copenhagen where a large fight broke out. Theis fought valiently but was overwhelmed by the Vampire/Sigmar force and killed during the fighting, and as he was killed by Sigmar Priests this would be his permenent death. Following the death of Theis the Flemeth loyalists were a completely broken force and the before Mandred even reached the army of Flemeth in Swedan which was blocking the Germans the army had disbanded with its commanders either retreating northward to the Andals or been killed by the army that was never really interested in fighting in Swedan. Mandred would during this moment begin the construction of the Great Copenhagen Bridge of which was constructed with the abiltity to be raised and lowered through a series of flooding levies, and this work allowed for the greater fortification of the land route between Swedan, and Denmark, but also allowed for a much easier crossing for the Germans of whom Mandred would work extensively with making sure they moved into Central Europe south of the Imperium just as he desired.
The End of Morality
Following the destruction of the Vandal Kingdom of Oland the lands of Swedan were basically open to the Invasion of the Andals, but for Jannok her role in the killings was too much and she begin making plans to change the Andals back to their non-Chaos leaning religions. Supported by her two daughters Jannok would believe she had secretly put this plan in place, but shortly before it was to move forward she would be confronted in the Palace grounds of her kingdom by Flemeth and her son, and following a battle between the group it would Flemeth that took Jannok away leaving Dannok in command of the Andals, while Valenia, and Rowena would flee southward.
