Godrick is a truly ancient Vampire of the second generation that makes him a member of the Dukes Of Weerhousen, and the Lord and creater of the Sanguin Bloodline. Godrick is the cousin of Queen Neferata and she believes him to be very loyal as he is also the creater of the religion of Lilith but in fact he is a true believer in Lilith but does not believe she is Lilith. Godrick has been the maker of many Vampires in his time as a Vampire but he has maintained a very strict policy for himself of only ever turning someone that wishes it in the end.
Godric was the cousin of Queen Neferata and a young boy when he was turned into a vampire by his sister, as an insult to her uncle of whome had made an insult of her inside the halls of the Lahmian Senate. Following his creation as a Vampire he would find several other individuals within the Vampire scene that he found close to him, and these men and women would form the begginings of what he came to call the Sanguin bloodline. As time went on under Godrick the Bloodline would form the Vampire religion in the form of Lilith of which Godrick potrayed as being about Queen Neferata but was actually a belief he held in what was the reason behind the creation of Vampires. He would escape the ruins of Lahmia with his cousin and the rest of the Lahmian Vampires but much of his Bloodline died as they attempted to save the people of Lahmian City as was the custom of the Bloodline. Godrick would leave Greece while the Lahmia court was staying there and fell in love with the Vandals of northern Swedan fighting alongside King Eilrich Oldan during the Andal Invasion and despite losing this fight he would retreat south and save Eilrich's son Eric Oldan making him the second member of the Sanguin Bloodline.

Rise of the Vampire Queen
| Rise of the Vampire Queen|
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.
Vashenesh and the now Queen Neferata were both left with broken hearts by the news that Hercuso was to be her husband, but both of them buried it, and Queen Neferata and Hurcuso had a child together, and in public appeared very in love. While for Hurcuso this was real, for Angelica this was a painful separation from her true love Stefon Vashenesh. As Queen Neferata was at first very present in the rule of the land, but as it continued her first years were defined by her involvement in the behind scenes politics that were very prevalent among the aristocrats that appeared at the top of the leadership in Lahmia. This switch had a lot to do with the involvement of Hercuso of whom was a more morally bankrupt individual then Angelica remembered him being, but because of their previous relationship she trusted that he was a good person and took his words to heart.
The Coming of Nagash
See Also : Nagash
Only four years into her reign as Queen of Neferata she was approached by a man who called himself Nagash. Each night this man would appear in her room, and each time she called the guard he would disappear. Even when she begged Vashenesh to protect her she could never escape him. Vashenesh stayed in her room standing stoicly against a wall despite her begging him to sleep beside her so she could finally rest. During his time in standing guard she continued to see Nagash of whom simply walked beside him, and when she pointed at Nagash Vashenesh couldn't see him. When Vashenesh couldn't see him she became distraught and attempted to force herself sexually onto her former lover, but he was too honorable to be taken in such a way and thus rejected her attempts to sleep with him. Following this attempt Vashenesh would refuse to stay with her again. She tried this several more times in a failed attempt to get someone elce to see the man including one attempt when she had ten guards attempt to surround Nagash but he simply walked clean through them, and despite the fact that they felt something they had saw nothing.Eventually she stopped calling the guard as she realized the hopelessness of her problem, and instead she listened to his words. Over two years Nagash whispered to her of her beauty and how she was the daughter of a god. These compliments eventually led to Nagash seeking for her to gather materials for him. He told her these materials would create a potion that would allow her to remain beautiful forever, and never lose her power.She gathered the materials for him and for years he gave her potions that kept her looking beautiful. Eventually as all evil men do, Nagash wanted more from her, and more importantly then just this he wanted her to do something for him. When she questioned what he wanted Nagash would make it know that he demanded she entice Jesus into coming to Lahmia and too kill him in a betrayal that would shake the foundations of the continent. He would give her time to think of this, and in this time she would go to her council and discuss the possibilities of war with Nehekhara and what would possibly happen if the two nations did go to war, and her Councillors showed her information on the scale of the war machine in Nehekhara and it became very clear how unable Lahmia was to actually fight against the Empire of Nehekhara. Following this discovery Nagash would return days later demanding and answer and it was at this point when she absolutely refused his request stating it would destroy her Kingdom, and with her denial he told her that she would lose the most valuable thing to her if she didn't agree.
First Death of Stefon Vashenesh
Angelica would ponder what this was over the night, and she didn't even think it was Stefon as she spent the night with him, but she considered many different things all of monetary or physical value. Not only did she not think it was Stefon she believed truly that Nagash was also somewhat frightened of her in her new state. Nagash was quick to prove his point when the very next day Nagash killed Vashenesh, and brought his dead body to Angelica's feet. When Angelica saw Vashenesh dead she wept and held him before she was interrupted by Nagash's laughter. She ignored his laughter and begged him to bring Vashenesh back to her. She pleaded with the liche for him to do anything to bring back Stefon to her, and she was in that moment more afraid then she had ever been in her entire life. Nagash saw his opening and agreed to resurrect Vashenesh if Angelica would do what he asked in regards to Jesus. Nagash would understand better then anyone that in that moment he could have gotten her to do whatever he wanted, as her devotion, and fanatical love for Stefon was something that couldn't be separated from the fact that she was going down a one way road.
With Vashenesh under threat Angelica immediately accepted the offer, and waited patiently for Nagash to save him, but minutes passed and he simply stood there. During this time she was fed images in her mind by Nagash of the violent and brutal fate that awaited Stefon as she watched him dying over and over again. This caused her debilitating pain, and she fell to the floor and held him close crying hysterically. As this happened Nagash understood very clearly that he had broken the Queen, and he only needed to push her into becoming a vampire so that his plans were complete. As she regained her ability to stand she begin screaming at him that he wasn't doing anything, and in that moment he told her that the only way to save him was for Nagash to turn her into the nonliving, and then for her to then turn him as well. So desperate was Angelica that she accepted this to, and in this moment doomed herself to Vampirism.
The First Vampire
Main Article : Vampire
Angelica Neferata was the very first vampire of the world, and was created simply by the Magi of Nagash of whom wanted her to become something dark and twisted so that at worst she would corrupt the lands of Lahmia of whom stood as a guardian to the humans of Nehekhara unknowingly. Giving Angelica the Elixer of Life as he called it he would have her kept alone for nearly two weeks in her room as she changed into the first vampire the world would ever know, and the progenitor of the entire species. The only thing that remained in her room was the dead body of Vashenesh of whom Nagash cast a spell upon which merged him into the Veil forcing him to not go into the Fade and be unable to be resurrected. Her transformation would end, and she had gained fangs, and the unstoppable desire for human blood of which the only thing nearby was Stefon of whom Nagash convinced her the only way to heal him was to take the blood from him, and in her blood lust and unstoppable desire to have him live she would bite him draining his blood turning Stefon into the second Vampire. Keeping his promise to Angelica for a time Nagash would disappear from sight in the hope that she would lose control and feed on humans thus corrupting her forever with the knowledge of how good blood was for her, but instead she would seek out Stefon of whom had been turned into a Vampire but was resisting his urges and had come to sleeping by her door waiting for her to come out of whatever had kept her away from him and the rest of her people.
Seeking his brother out and not him would lead Hercuso to become finally done with his older brother and he would leave the palace ground and head north to the fortress of Alexandria where he would be unknowingly watched by Nagash. While travelling Hercuso would be approached by Nagash of whom convinced Hercuso that Angelica was truly in love with him but had been abused by Stefon and the only way to save her was to do a ritual with Nagash of which would bring her back to him. Doing the ritual was nothing more then a spell which made Hercuso's blood more appetizing to Angelica and thus when he returned to the palace and went to see her she would be unable to resist the call of his blood and broke out of her containment and attempted to turn him into a Vampire making the third Vampire of the world and destroying her ability to stop. As she attempted to bite him she was stopped by Stefon of whom took his brother from the room hiding within the dungeon beneath the palace, and as he finally stopped running Hercuso stole a knife from Stefon stabbing Stefon, but due to being a Vampire the damage was nearly nothing, and realizing that Hercuso had come second in this way as well he would slit his wrists. Watching his brother die in front of him Stefon bit him causing Stefon great blood lust, but also turning Hercuso into the third Vampire in the world through the blood kiss of Stefon.
Katia`s sister Angelica Neferata would approach her during this time and begin telling her about her meetings with Nagash and the fact that she was now an immortal creature that she was calling herself a Vampire which was in their language meaning ``the immortal one`` and as she talked of this her sister Katia sat without moving not truly believing what she was hearing. As Angelica realized that she was resisting her call to become like her, she concentrated on the eyes of Katia and did what felt necessary in what would later become known as glammering. She was able to glammer Katia into agreeing with her, and this would lead to her turning her sister into a Vampire making Katia the second Vampire of the world.
Rise of the Bloodlines
Following turning her sister Katia into a Vampire Angelica would begin to plan with her sister - of whom became following this transormation extremely devout to Angelica - how they could completely gain dominence over the court of Lahmia, and they would devise a plan where Angelica would turn certain members of the court into Vampires and from there create powerful commanders for herself which they would call the Bloodlines.
As the number of her so called Bloodline Dukes increased she was forced to stop following Narmer, and Cerelia two of her dukes massacring entire villages in western Lahmia due to their blood lust, and following the execution of these two she would command more control over who was changed into Vampires and attempted with much failure to control the killings of the people by the growing Vampire nobility. Also during this time Katia would begin expanding her own forces turning half a dozen members of the servent class of House Neferata and it was in these turnings that Angelica would come to find several dire hard loyalists in the turning of Orithyia of Neferata, Baerius of Neferata, and Persis of Neferata all of whom swore themselves to Angelica forming an inner guard for her.

Angelica you call us gods, but in truth my beloved you betrayed the only true god any of us will ever meet. No matter how much evil we do we will never turn ourselves into anything more then the monster that turned us into this.
The Death of Jesus
See Also : Jesus
With the rise of the Vampires in the Kingdom of Lahmia and as their excesses got worse and more impossible to hide the legend of what they were begin to escape the walls of Lahmia and into the Empire of Neheharka where the Sultan Jesus Christ would take this information very seriously. Jesus was a great believe in intelligence of your enemies, and in this way he dispatched spies to the nation of Lahmia in order to see if what he was hearing were true, or whether they were just fables. After time went by the spies returned to him with information, and what they discovered in Lahmia was beyond horrifying to him as it appeared to the spies that the aristocracy of Lahmia were Vampires, and preying on their people like demons. With this knowledge and the fact that Jesus was completely unwilling to allow such demonic presence to exist he would begin by order his armies to be raised and under the command of his generals he would begin harassing the Lahmian front to discover the strength of these Vampire armies. In each battle the Lahmians were victorious but not because they used Vampires but because of the most brilliant military commander anyone had ever seen in the form of the Vampire Lord Abhorash. This Lahmian commander named Abhorash was using his army of 250,000 and defeating armies twice and sometimes more then that of his size, and it was in this that Jesus would take an even further look into the Kingdom of Lahmia but more importantly the General Abhorash.
With Queeen Neferata now completely on the side of listening to whatever Nagash wanted her to do, she ordered her messengers to send a communication to Jesus that she wished to meet with him near the mountains of Cache, where she would like to discuss the ending of the conflict between the two of their kingdoms. Jesus was given the truce of kings which was basically the most honor bound thing you could offer another king, and it meant that no harm would come to you while on the other persons land. As Jesus left Nehekhara and entered Lahmia his commanders and advisers advised him strenuously to take a much stronger force, and to have the massive reserves he had called in to assist him in case something happened. In the end he trusted that honor would be upheld, but he also believed himself the son of God, and in this way no harm could come to someone who was doing to the work of God. Above this as well he was accompanied by two of his apostles in Judas, and Thomas of which Thomas was fanatically devout in his belief that Jesus was the son of God and thus he took no great worry about any risk to Jesus. Judas though had become bitter about the fact that he felt Jesus had betrayed him by not repaying the debt he believed he was owed. This fact meant that despite the fact that he agreed with the advisers and that he thought they should bring more men he did not voice these concerns and instead allowed his master to continue down the path.
As Jesus entered the outskirts of the fortress of Cache, he became confused as to where the Lahmians were, and his commanders begged him to pull back, and for nearly a day he remained impassive about whether to pull back, and he felt no danger so he had his force rest for the night and the next day they would press inside the fortress and find out the truth, or turn back depending on what he felt. Silently Jesus was waiting to see what Judas would do as he had felt the hatred that Judas felt towards him but he had honestly begin to believe that he was the son of God and thus he believed that he would be protected from harm even if Judas led him into the massive army of Undead that surrounded them. Jesus spent the night sitting in his tent with Thomas meditating beside him, and he waited hours for Judas to decide on what would happen, and when finally Judas made the decision Jesus was saddened by the betrayal but believed that Judas would repent and believe in him if he proved to Judas how truly powerful he was.
As the army woke the next day Jesus ordered them into the fortress and the incoming army of Undead that he senses. The army once they entered the fortress finally noticed the Undead all around them and they discovered that they were now surrounded by what appeared to be a million plus enemy soldiers. But this was no ordinary army this was the army of Nagash, and he alongside his million plus skeleton army charged the roughly 50,000 Nehekhara army. The battle didn't last long with the forces of Nagash absolutely destroying the army before it eventually surrounded the elite guard of Jesus, and the son of God himself. As Jesus's guard was whittled down man by man, he himself used his immense power to destroy thousands of the attackers each spell he cast. Jesus, Thomas, and Judas formed a triangle where in they all fought together and were basically unbeatable. This went on for hours as they fought shoulder to shoulder until Jesus felt Judas move away and watched with pained eyes as Judas teleported himself away from the battle leaving Jesus and Thomas with their triangle broken. As Thomas finally was felled by the ravening horde Jesus himself watched as the skeletons stopped coming forward and made a massive entrance path for something.
Jesus watched as the enigmatic figure of Nagash walked down the pathway. When he reached the end Nagash would stop and Jesus realizing in this moment that he was going to die would deliver his final revenge when he would curse the Vampires who were Nagash`s true punishment on the world, and following his chanting of the curse Nagash would step forward and the two would begin their final battle. On a normal occasion the two were equally matched, but with Jesus having just fought for hours he was exhausted, and the world lost its second Man God when Jesus failed to deflect a killing spell and fell to the ground dead.
| Destruction of Lahmia|
I made a terrible mistake Stefon...I led us into the gates of the very hell I was trying to avoid, and now look at our home. We played in the gardens and we lived the lives of normal people, and I destroyed all of that. What can I do now. Tell me what I can do now to make this right. I do not want this to end like this. I cannot accept that I did all of this evil and there wont be some kind of happy ending for us. We were supposed to live forever. It wasn`t supposed to end this way.
Destruction of Lahmia
Main Article : Fall of Lahmia
When Jesus died, the reverberations from his death combined with the death of Thomas shortly before that led to a nearly mythical Magi shock wave spreading throughout the planet. Those with Magi abilities were literately pained by this wave, and the level of their pain increased with the Magi ability. It was in the Empire of Nehekhara that Peter was meeting with the members of the government when he fell to the ground in pain. Surrounded by the men they helped him up, and he announced to everyone what had happened. Within days every single Apostle would arrive at El-Kalabad on the border and it was there that they mobilized and bashed aside the few Lahmian forces that stopped them from trying to get to Cathe. Retrieving the broken headless body of Jesus they returned to Damascus where they had a great funeral for the Son of God Jesus Christ. The Funeral lasted for nearly a month, and the different Apostles took the death completely differently. Led by Peter the majority would be overcome with grief and anger and would raise a massive army that they would lead back to El-Kalabad in preparation to gain revenge against Nagash and Queen Neferata. While this was true of many there were also apostles that took no part in the conflict and chose a different path.
The massive army of the Empire of Nehekhara arrived at El-Kalabad and it was as they entered the ruins of Cathe for the second time that they were met with resistance from Nagash and the Lahmian army.
Discovering the Truth
The Apostles of Jesus were not the only ones to quickly discover the death of Jesus, as the Magi of Lahmia quickly told Angelica Neferata and the assembled government of Lahmia that Jesus was dead and Nagash was now on route to the northern ports making his escape. Angelica was quickly advised by her main commander in Abhorash that if the army of Nehekhara came for aggression there wasn't a thing they could do to stop them. In this way and realizing the mistake she had made, Angelica would send messengers to Al-Haikk stating their non-involvement in the death of Jesus and that they had been tricked by Nagash. These messengers never made it to Al-Haikk but were caught by the massive army now assembled at Cathe. If the apostles got this message they did not accept it, and Angelica watched as they entered Cathe and gathered the body of their savior and then left again where her spies told her that they had a massive funeral. Harakhate be commanded by Angelica Neferata to flee Lahmia following the lack of response from the forces of Nehekhara as she wanted to make sure there would be somewhere for the Vampires to go if the worst came to pass, and in this way he traveled to Greece where he alongside his bloodline took control of an island of the coast of southern Greece. It was following the departure of Harakhate and as they waited for the army of Nehekhara that Nagash would return to the capital.
The Return of Nagash
Nagash would be sent word from Sauron that he should retreat as Sauron's spies in Nehekhara told him that the apostles remained alive and were leading the armies in the name of revenge against Nagash and the Lahmians. Nagash would try and escape through the ports of the northern coast, but each ship that he tried to board would nearly immediately collapse due to sabotage, or suicide of the crew members. He and his loyal commander Larloch attempted to undue the spells but discovered a power more endless then anything they knew about, and gave up. Realizing that some Magi beyond his power was binding him to Lahmia he believed the only way to escape was to defeat the armies of Nehekhara and then make his escape. Returning to Lahmia City he would meet with Angelica Neferata of whom he would gather with to meet the forces of Nehekhara in battle.
Battle of Cathe
For such a devestating conflict their were only really two battles in the entire conflict and the first was a massacre known as the Battle of Cathe. For years the army of Lahmia had held off attack after attack using the immense skill of Aborhorash but now the army of Nehekhara was led by Peter the Apostle and every other assembled Apostle also involved. Numbering nearly three million plus the Apostles and thousands of Angels the army of Nehekhara quickly smashed into the forces of Lahmia and Nagash of whom even with Nagash's demonic army only numbered 400 thousand. The Battle left nearly the entire Lahmian, and Nagash army destroyed and hundreds of the vampire aristocrats were killed in the battle, but Abohorash, W`soran, Nagash and many other Vampire Lords retreated back to Lahmia City.
Fall of the Capital
Wsoran aided by summoning legions of undead, animating the slain soldiers of the Sultan of Nehekhara`s own army and turning them against their still living companions. Legends say that Nagash assisted W`soran. Eventually however, the Nehekharans was victorious and the vampires who survived fled north. The Temple of Blood and the Great Library with all its arcane knowledge went up in flame. Some of the Necrachs, Wsoran's vampire children, refused to abandon the library and were burned. W`soran himself took as many books and scrolls as he could carry and made a run for it.
With the War with Nehekhara lost, Queen Neferata gathered the survivors of her court to her in the small Lahmian estate village of Glova where they very silently licked their wounds and prepared to decide the next steps. As the days went by and the members of her court that had survived managed to reach the estate she decided that they would head north towards the obscure port of Hashin, which she hoped would not have been taken by the Nehekhara forces.
The Vampires made their way north, and moved very carefully through the rear echelon of the Nehekhara forces that were mopping up the survivors of the war. During this time their power meant that they were able to move quite easily without any real trouble in only two months. When they arrived at the town they found they were lucky and it had in fact been disregard by the Nehekhara armies in their rush for the capital of lahmia.
He would escape the ruins of Lahmia with his cousin and the rest of the Lahmian Vampires but much of his Bloodline died as they attempted to save the people of Lahmian City as was the custom of the Bloodline.

| Vampires on the Run|
It was an entirely different world, and it took me a long time to get used to the fact that I couldn't just openly expect the people to follow me. The lands of Greece were pleasant enough, but I really just wanted to see Vashenesh smile again, and I was willing to try anything in order to make that happen.
With her forces managing to reach the small port of Hashin they captured the fleet present there and coralled the survivors northward towards Greece. When the group landed in Greece they numbered around 2,500 and in this way they were a rather powerful group. In Greece the vampires would at first attempt to devise a plan where in they could raise an army and take back Lahmia of which Angelica was noticeably silent on this plan. As Abhorash planned to retake Lahmia news came into the greek plains that the Empire of Nehekhara had sacked the capital of Lahmia and was garrisoning the entirety of the kingdom. With this news the vampires followed the lead of their queen when they accepted that the Kingdom of Lahmia was lost to them for now. While the Vampire Court of Lahmia was staying in Greece planning their next moves it would be the anger that many felt over thier 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. Anai Heretee would during the time of the Vampire Court staying in Greece would fall in love with the young Greek Prince Fadil Heretee of whom unwilling to move on without him would turn him into a vampire but put the blame on one of her pregeny of whom she then betrayed and killed playing herself as the savior of Fadil."We spent a long time in Greece, and during this time I drifted farther away from the morality that I had once known as I accepted the words of Hercuso that we were now gods. He made me believe that human lives were completely useless and were ours to do with what we wanted. I didn't realize that every life I took in the brutal manner I did drover my love farther away from me. I didn't realize that he was disapointed in me or I would have stopped immediatly."
The vampires spent nearly 45 years in the Greek mainland where they went from city state to city state menipulating them into financing, and supplying the vampires with huge wealth. After 45 years they moved northward where they moved through Estalia, and then settled in the Dol Amroth mountain of Dania for many decades. In Dania they waged conflict with the mountain goblins, and acumulated more wealth through raiding the rich Dol Amroth lands.

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.

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 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.

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.

Arnor Invasion of Weerhousen
| The Sad End of Jafrey Hemsworth|
He was an honorable man who deserved far better then what we gave him.
Arnor for a longer term mission in order to seduce and gain the trust of the Prince of Arnor Jafrey Hemsworth of whom was the crown prince of Arnor and of the extremely powerful House Hemsworth. She was told that this was so that she could get a favorable trade, and alliance arrangement for Weerhousen, and with this pretences she left for Arnor. As she was leaving Weerhousen she would meet with Urshoran of whom warned her that she would be tasked with murdering something within herself if she wanted to continue down the road she was travelling. When she arrived in Arnor she assumed that she would feel the same way as she had while she was killing in Weerhousen, but as she walked the roads she saw a small girl crying on the side of the road and where she usually felt nothing when she looked at the little girl she felt a pain in her heart. Everything in her for some reason cried out to her to save that little girl. She had the ability to save her and yet she was torn in two. One side of her had spent a century killing and doing whatever she wanted, and the other side was apparently waking up from a long sleep. Despite her reservations she would decide to not help the little girl, as she was too scared of what she would become back in Weerhousen if she started having emotions. She moved on from the little girl and attempted to forget it but as she infiltrated the capital of Fornost and over the course of two years worked herself into a position of some influence among House Hemsworth she once again begin to feel the sadness in her heart. As she and Jafrey became more and more romantically involved she came to believe that she loved him, and she begin to wish she could back out of the plan that she had spent the better part of three years working on. She attempted to discuss this with Jafrey but she couldn't work up the nerve to tell him what she was planning to do, so he continued to follow her manipulation when he raised a large army of Arnor and marched southwest towards Weerhousen. On the night of the massacre of his army Meghanna went into the tent of Jafrey and smothered him with a pillow so that he wouldn't have to watch the downfall of the army that he was leading die around him. Following this as the army of Arnor burned and died around her and her lover she carefully wrapped his body in the flag of Arnor and moved throughout the Chaos in the direction of Arnor.
Meghanna was sent to |
Whether she loved Jafrey or not wasn't what truly changed Meghanna it was the feeling that the whole thing was completely pointless. She watched as the Vampires massacred the large army and she came to understand what they had become, and that disturbed her more then anything else had ever in her life. As she walked with Jafrey's body to Arnor she felt the weight of all the decisions she had ever made crashing down on her, and nearing half way back to Arnor she was met on the road by Godric, and Eric Olden of whom would talk with her for some time about what she had done, and while Godric was understanding of her pain Eric was disgusted with her and went out of his way to make her feel worse. Following their departure she continued on her road to Arnor and after weeks of walking she finally reached the walls of Fornost where the guards were all over, and she was prepared to die until his brother Jonas Hemsworth came out and saw her face stained with bloody tears, and her carrying the badly decayed body of his brother in her arms and he knew what she was. He ordered his men to take his brother inside to the crypts of House Hemsworth and he stood and talked with the women that had for all intenses purposes murdered his brother and killed thousands of Arnor people in the massacre he was torn. He had seen how much his brother had loved Meghanna and he looked at her and knew that she too loved him. He would finally decide to let her live, and thus she was again survived the conflict that she wanted to end her, and this only broke her further.
Following the massacre of the Arnor army led by Jafrey he would be believed killed in the massacre but instead was captured from the field by W`soran of whom would use him for decades in twisted experiments until finally he would die of the experiments, but even this was not enough for W`soran of whom cast a curse on him which forced him to remain within the Veil and forced to watch Meghanna`s actions until the end of time.
