{{Template:Hidden - Third Battle of Minus Ithil}}
Following the crowning of William Lovie III. as the King of Lucerne many drastic changes were going on in the Kingdom of Lucerne, and one of these was the idea of the neccesity of a port in eastern Stormwind to be the center of the navy of Lucerne. The [[Order of the Red Dragon]] had the funds and materials needed to begin construction of the Lucerne navy but no great port existed, and Lannistane was deemed to dangerous a location to do it at since the Lannisters couldn't be fully trusted. William would send [[Varian Anthor]] his family and vassals eastward where they would found a port on the island now to be named Anthor. The Port of Stormwind would become the beacon of the eastern section in a part of the land where there was little Lucernian presence. The vast province of Winterfell was somewhat broken up to make way for the larger state of Anthor and the many provinces within it, and this was compromise of later giving [[House Starke]] land north of Anthor (Later would become Hentwood). The lands that became Anthor would be rich in fishing, and had some mining, but the main operations of the house would be built around the port of Stormwind and the trade that would grow from being the center of eastern trade for the Kingdom of Lucerne.

{{Quote(1)|House Anthor nearly bankrupted itself constructing the port, but as the loans from the Hales, and Lovie's flowed in the fears were somewhat alayed. This was going to be their main holding and for them you could tell by talking to Varian that he wanted it perfect. He dreamed of Stormwind, and Lucerne when constructing the port.|Leonardo Mevinlo}}
The Port of Stormwind's construction would be the responsibility of both House Anthor and the [[Order of the Grey Dragon]] of whom had already worked magic reconstructing Tree Hill. The Port of Stormwind was constructed over several months and during this time House Anthor was busy travelling around the new state making sure that everything was going according to plan, and during this time they were met by members of House Starke who arrived in the near built Port of Stormwind. During this time [[Leonardo Mevinlo]] would arrive in the port with nearly two hundred engineers and thousands of workmen from the west. Leonard had been tasked with completing the port as quickly as possible and that the Order would fund a basic design on its own, and that House Anthor would be responsible for any expansions on the plan. Finding Varian very much interested in growth he would be tasked with quickly adding to the construction several extra docks, and a large expansion of the Anthor esates.
[[File:Candice_Anthor_Wide.jpg|thumb|left|400px|Candice Anthor was the most trusted person for Varian Anthor and she was placed in charge of directing around all the nobles visiting the Port of Stormwind.]]{{Quote(1)|We were gaining a Noble House in our lands, and that was something we had to keep a close eye on.

The Starke's were led by [[Robb Starke|Robb]] , and Brandon Starke while accompanied by [[Jon Snow]] and his friend Samwell Tarly in order to meet with the new Noble House that existed on their doorstep. Kevan Ambry also arrived in the area in order to make sure everyone knew that he was the first in line for the lands north of Anthor that were being promiced, and he arrived around the time that Keven, and [[Tyrek Lannister]] also arrived in order to see what was happening and how it would affect Castamere. [[Candice Anthor]] was placed in charge of leading the visiting nobles around and making sure they were kept happy, and she did this extremely effectively to the point that [[Keven Lannister]] bid her whether she would be open to a marriage to young Tytos Lannister. She would politely refuse but Jon Snow was listening in and watched as she eyed him afar, and after this she would confront Jon on evesdropping. She would kiss him, and the two would begin to take it farther until he stopped her telling her that his heart was with another. Following this the whole group would group together to meet with a large party of Frey's that her father had bid come to the port and see the scope of what was planned in order to further relations under the overal command of William.
====Frey Trouble====
[[File:House_Frey_Sigil.png|thumb|400px]]{{Quote(1)|The Frey's were know as a rotten bunch but you didn't realize until you actually saw them that the rumors were true.|Jon Snow}}
Candice Anthor, and Jon Snow would continue to spend time together and she continued to attempt to seduce him, but his father's teachings about honor made him unable to do so. She would go to the port when the Freys arrived with Jon Snow beside her, and as the Freys visited it seemed clear to the Lucernians that the Freys were after a marriage. After discussions over the female Frey's that they brought with them went well it was believed by all those that were there that everything was going according to plan. After the Freys returned with [[Roslin Frey]] the most pretty of the girls that had been sent the Lucernians would make the mistake of not bringing Tytos Lannister to the meeting (Keven had been commanded not to by Tywin Lannister knowing that it would make them think it was Robb Starke they were offering) and this led the Frey's to believe that Robb was being offered. When this was made verbal there was laughter from several Lucernians who saw it as a joke that the Freys would believe Robb Starke would marry someone like a Frey. [[Walder Frey II.|Black Walder Frey]] would take out his sword and fighting nearly broke out before his father Stevron Frey grabs ahold of him and controls the situation. The Freys leave after this with parting words from [[Lothar Frey]] being very threatening to Robb Starke of whom they feel greatly insulted them.
[[File:Frey_Object_left_behind.jpg|thumb|left|400px|Robb never discussed the Frey object left behind in his room to anyone outside of Obella of whom he only vaguely mentioned once when she asked about the Frey's.]]{{Quote(1)|Beyond Childish were the Frey's.

The Frey's would return to their ships following the argument and despite attempts by many including a near marriage proposal created by Candice Anthor and Stevron Frey the other Freys were intimidated by Black Walder Frey and refused to listen to the heir of Frey in Stevron Frey. On the route back from the Port of Stormwind it is known that during the night everyone went to bed, and the next morning the boat had its anchors up, and many on board were dead including Stevron his wife, and the captain. Everyone believed that Black Walder had done it, but unable to prove it and unwilling to be next on the chopping block noone mentioned it, and the story returning to Frey was that the captain had gone insane and killed Stevron and his wife.

{{Template:Hidden Invasion of Westbridge}}
{{Quote(1)|I understood that Karl was far more hawkish then I could have imagined. In my view the only way to deal with a hawk is to take out everything around it, and watch it flop around. Soon Karl was going to see that trying to indimate the Kingdom of Lucerne would be getting a lot harder to do.|William Lovie III.}}
The invasion of Westrbridge was a plan that Andrew followed his meetings with [[Karl Franz]]. The meeting had started with a lot of promise but following the intial talks it became clear to both of them that they shared some serious ideological problems, and on top of that where Andrew had believed there would be talk about the survival of Arnor when Arnor was brought up it was as if it was a forgone conclusion and that wasn't acceptable for Lucerne. On one side of things he knew he had a sibling that was now queen of Arnor and thus he couldn`t leave her suvival to chance. On the second part he knew that if [[The Empire]] struck against Arnor and took it then the bottleneck they had for centuries would be gone, and they might spread south without resistence. When he looked at actually being able to intervene in Arnor and what that possibility might lead to his commanders and strategists would all suggest that would be foolhardy and would have little chance of success. What wouldn`t have a slight chance of success was if they could take Westbridge as a position to hold against the potential invasion of The Empire. In order to stop this Andrew went about planning the invasion of Westbridge which he believed would create the defence position which even with the fall of [[Arnor]] which he now believed was a certainty Lucerne could hold on against The Empire. In order to launch this main assault House Lovie would bring with them nearly all of their vassals including everything not part of western Lucerne of which would be remaining behind.

{{Quote(1)|It was the deciding day. All across the line we were breaking them, but one mistake and it would all crash down.|William Lovie III.}}
The [[House Martell|Martells]] fought beside the main army as it moved towards the southern gateway of Westbridge, and as they camped out during the day in the forest Leven got the chance to see William Lovie again for the first time in a long time. During most of the day the men were resting so that they would be ready for the night attack, but William was constantly on the move visiting the different house leaders and finding out all the things that were going on with them. The visits with many of the Lords went smoothly but his arrival in House Arryn`s tent would be somewhat different. Arriving in the Arryn part of the giant camp he discovered that Bryan Arryan hadn`t made the trip and had sent [[Paul Arryn]] in his stead. Knowing Paul was a skilled fighter he discussed with them what would cause Bryan to not come for such an important event and heard for the first time about how weak willed Bryan was beyond what he already knew about. Leaving the Arryn tent he visited House Krinner, and Dorin of whom he would count upon to take up a significant portion of the attack, as House Arryn would be launching against the keep to the west of the main gatehouse. One of his final meetings would come with House Martell of whom was one of the premier houses of House Lovie`s entourage and also Leven Martell a member of the Shadow Council was with the Martell forces.
{{Quote(1)|Leven had always been there for me in a way that few people in this world would ever truly be there for you. She was beyond just someone I counted as a friend, and other then Jasper and Alice she was the be all for me. A person you shared everything with, and of whom never judged you was too much to ignore, and seeing her then made me realize how much I had ignored it.|William Lovie III.}}
Leven Martell would be waiting all day for the arrival of her best friend, and their actual meeting took place when William came to the Martell part of the camp to meet with [[Doran Martell]] who he assumed would be leading the force, but when he arrived at the command tent to find the three Martell sisters looking over the battle plans and talking furiosly over the plans. When they finally noticed that he was their flanked to his right by Jasper Hale, and to his left by [[Draco Highmore]] they watched panicked for what his reaction would be to the realization that Doran wasn't leading the force but instead it was his three young daughters. Instead of anger he looked to his two friends and begin laughing before walking to the table and discussing with them the upcoming battle. As the group disperced, Leven stepped forward towards William and she made a note of how quickly Jasper moved to shield the prince from what he must have deemed as a hostile gesture from Leven. Instead of hostility she wished to speak to him, and he was basically done for the day so he said that she could follow him to his tent and they could discuss old times.
=====<font size="5" face="century schoolbook" color="Black">Growing Up</font>=====
{{Quote(1)|I wanted to have everything with him. He was supposed to be my future. It should have been me he marrid and fathered children with. I just couldn`t let go of that belief, it didn`t matter that he had married and had children with someone else I just couldn`t move past him.|Leven Martell}}
As she followed him back to his tent she had a moment to watch how much he had changed. Where once he had been wild and charismatic in a way that made you feel used but at the same time want to, he was now kinder, and his charisma was a gentle thing that seeped off him and instead of feeling like their was a nefarious reason behind the kind words now he seemed to truly care. She watched as he greeted everyone that he walked by, and when they finnally reached his tent they moved through the numerous gaurds, and entered his inner room. Inside the room she wondered what would happen but she was suprised when he let out a sigh and slumped down on a chair. She laughed at the moment before joining him in the seat beside him, where she gave him a moment to relax before they begin talking. They laughed and joked and the feelings that [[Leven Martell|Leven]] had for him returned just as strong as they had once been, and as the conversation got later she begin to plan to attempt to seduce him. This plan changed when they begin discussing his children, and when she heard him discuss them she realized just how far he had come. Despite the fact that she wanted him. Despite the fact that she was still in love with him, she knew that she couldn't do it. Even if she believed that she was capable of seducing him she didn't have the heart to do it to him considering everything he had become. So without that in mind she ended up falling asleep in his room with perhaps the first true friend she had ever had.
{{Template:Conversations - Rise of Lucerne}}
I walked with Jasper passed the orange tents of the Martell`s and had a tinge of excitement as I knew I`d see Leven. She was a truly great friend, and the fact that I hadn`t seen her for some time gave me pause as to why I seemed to always treat her that way. She was one of the Shadow Council, but in a lot of ways she was the forgotten member. Treated as an outsider without every really saying it outloud.
Jasper constantly questioned to me whether the feelings that she held for me were recipricated, and it was never really something I had been forced to deal with. When we were young and sleeping together I had pushed it aside because I was angry and bitter, and she was one of the few that loved me to such a level that in the back of my mind I knew I could treat whatever way I wanted. I would never be able to apologize enough to her for what I did to her back then, but she had never asked for an apology which honestly just made it worse. 
Shaking hands, and saying my hellos to the knights along the way I was stopped by the fat lord Mavin Vaith of whom was a good man, but my uncle had always joked he loved his pies and cakes far more then he did anything else. When I questioned how I could trust such a man Emmett had joked that I should simply send him cakes and pies as often as possible. Jasper would sacrifice the time of Emmett so that we could move past, and I could just make out the look of anger that he shot at Jasper who just laughed in return. Walking into the Martell`s main camp, I saw Leven, Dorea, and Obella on one side of the table, flanked by Wilheim, Mandon Moore, and Maryn Trant who were on the other side. As I got closer I saw a young boy that looked the spitting image of Maryn and despite never knowing him I assumed it was his heir in Ian Trant, and the boy despite his youth would immediatly know to bow on my entrance. ``'''My Lords, how goes the planning.'''``
I shouldn`t have been suprised when Leven was the first to anwser. ``'''My King the Martell forces are well ready for anything asked of them.'''`` You would hardly know that we were best friends with the dutiful way she spoke, but I knew even if I told her not to she wouldn`t ever speak to me outside of privacy in anyway other then extreme class.
``'''My cousin is correct my King. The final elements of House Trant arrived just this morning bringing our entire force to bear. We are now completely ready for the assault.'''`` Wilheim would bow as well after speaking, and pointed towards the different elements on the papers they were looking at, showing how strong in number they were.
``'''Excellent. I must continue my rounds as I still have the Faraday`s and their most likely desire to see me hand the Highmore`s over as a good luck charm for the battle to deal with.'''``There was laughter in the tent, and it went that way for a good ten minutes longer until Emmett came into the tent with a less then happy look on his face telling us that we had to retire for the night. I bid the commanders get some rest before the night got to late, and gave Leven a nod of my head a brief smile before shaking each of their hands and kissing Dorea, and Obella`s hands and then moved out of the tent. As I walked following Jasper and Emmett who were by this point argueing about Jasper`s joke on Emmett I felt a hand on my back and went to see what Draco wanted, but when I turned and looked it was Leven smiling at me. ``'''Leven, its good to see you.'''``
``'''I`ve missed you too my King.'''`` I wanted to force her to call me Will like she did when we were in private, but I knew it was a lost cause so I just moved forward.
``'''I`m sorry I had to rush out like that I hadn`t meant...'''`` She smiled at me before raising her hand as if to say for me to stop. She had always been far too kind for me, and it was true shame and a boon to have a friend as pure as she was.
``'''Nothing to apologize for my king. I was just happy to see you. Its been...Its been a long time.'''``Her saying it brought me to the realization of how long it had truly been since I`d seen her. She had allowed her hair to grow out, and her orange tinted armor was a masterpiece that I know she took very seriously. When we were young there wasn't a moment that I was training that she wasn't nearbye. There wasn't a time that I was bettering myself that she wasn't right beside me making herself better too.
"'''It's been too long.'''" I meant it more then I could put into words. The problems with Edward had left me understanding how fragile relationships were. I wanted to make sure that Leven perhaps my greatest and most loyal friend didn't become an Edward so I acted. "'''Leven are you available?'''" Her eyes lit up clearly realizing or atleast hoping I was going to ask her to join us.
"'''If you have need of me your grace I am avaliable.'''"
"'''Then follow us we have some Faraday, Highmore fueds to hear about." She laughed before looking around and making sure noone had seen before smiling back at me. "Come on milady lets go."'''
'''* * *'''
"'''How many different ways can such a small group describe how they hate something.'''"
"'''William, I have no idea how you were able to just stand there and listen to that. Desmond spent five minutes describing how he felt Draco's armor was an insult to your house. I wanted to stab him in the chest.'''" She laid her sword down as I unclasped my shoulder armor and rested it on its hanger. My gloves came off with some difficulty and I had to remember to have the armoror look at them before I went into battle.
"'''Please don't do that Leven. If you do then I'll have to hear about the orange armor of murderous Leven Martell and how I should send you into the mountains to live on goats.'''" The Faraday's were embaressing themselves, and I don't know whether they cared enough anymore to change it. Perhaps there hatred over the death of Joey Faraday was so strong now, that nothing could stop it until one side was dead. It seemed to me that death was the only way out of this mess, but when the Faraday's wanted the death of an individual that was months away from being a member of my own house they seemed the only canidates to die.
"'''What fools the Faraday's are.'''" She pulled off her final piece of chest armor and rested it on the ground. It was difficult not to look at her sexually, as she was a walking temptation. A girl who loved me as deeply as Leven did, and of whom looked like that was nearly a sin to not touch, but I had commited far too many sins of late to add one more so easily.
"'''I'v truly missed you Levia.'''" She stopped taking her armor off for a moment and looked at me with a smile so wide it didn't seem possible.
"'''I've missed being called Levia.'''" She left her lower armor on and moved to sit beside me on the bed, and again the temptress tempted me.
"'''Your sisters call you Levia.'''"
"'''Obella has been away with Robb in Stormwind, and Dorea has been in the north visiting High Hrothgar.'''" She said it with such sadness, and lonliness that I knew in that moment how much hurt I had caused her. I hadn't meant to send her away for so long, but she was honestly the only one other then Jasper that I could truly count on.
"'''I'm sorry I sent you away I just...Its just you guys are my only sure things.'''" I wondered if I still counted Edward amongst that number. Was my bitterness towards him ever going to go away.
"'''Why not Emmett, or Edward then. I don't mean to be rude but I missed you. Your my best friend, and I felt like you just sent me away like I was nothing.'''" A tear fell down her cheek, and I wiped it with my hand and as she fell into my hand I caressed her cheek.
"'''I am truly sorry Leven. I have taken you more then any other person in my life for granted. I love you, and I guess I thought in my mind that you and I were just...just so close that I could take advantage of you. Does that make sence.'''" It was the truth, and if there was one thing I wanted to remain it was our honesty. I never wanted to skirt around eachother the way we all did now with Edward. It was a fate for us worth then the ending of our friendship.
"'''It does, but please don't anymore. We are better off close to eachother. I don't mind leaving every once and awhile, but that was a long time.'''"
"'''Never again, unless the world is ending and its the only way to live.'''" She laughed and rested her head on my shoulder. "'''Lets pray it never comes to that Levia.'''"

{{Quote(1)|If there has ever been a more coordinated assault in the history of man, I`ve never heard of it.|Wilheim Martell}}
While the Invasion of Westbridge was split into many different sections with the forces of [[House Scott]], and [[House Shephard]] attacking the two major towns south of Westbridge. While they did this [[House Lannister]], and [[House Starke]] prepared to invade the main island by use of the Lucernian fleet in the dark of night, of which their attack would corespond with the attack of the main force on the south gate, and the Order of the Blue Dragon on the northern Gate. With all this in wait [[House Swan]] would invade Yerness which would block any relief from coming south from the Westbridge forces north of the town, as well as stopping [[Tom Malfoy|Voldermorte]] from coming south by boat. While this happened House Lovie moved north towards the Westbridge town of [[Margrove]] which had before the battle had started been assumed to be a minor town but information flooded into the high command that Margrove had been fortified by [[House Pollen]] and it would now be a major obsticle for the movement northwards. William knew that he didn't have time to besiege the city so he left behind [[House Scarlet]] and gave them the charge of taking Margrove and then holding the town until the Invasion was over. The vast army would then surround the completely unprepared city, and once the defenders knew how many were around them they hunkered down for a siege and waited for reinforcements. Only a few hours after surrounding the city House Lovie and the majority of the force would depart and leave House Scarlet, Mien, and Fraizen in charge of continueing the siege.

While Andrew was busy with the Martells [[Jasper Hale]] was busy at work completing the taks that he had been ordered to do by William of which mainly consisted of making sure that House Arryn was on track towards their part of the operation which was of great importance. During this he was accompanied by Emmett who believed that he could make the situation less uncomfortable and actually get something done. While the main force attacked the gate castle, the forces of House Arryn would attack the small port/town of [[Vlasnia ]] that harbored to the west of the gatehouse. A relatively heavily defended section of Westbridge this was of supreme importance that this be taken quickly by House Arryn otherwise the heavy artillery that was in place inside the port. Because of the damage taken by House Arryn's leadership caste it was the decision of Byron Arryn that he not lead the force and thus [[House Arryn]] and its vassals were being led into battle by Martin, and Paul Arryn, as well as his son Derek, and his niece Spencer Arryn of whome was known to be there by Martin but most others thought she was a mercenary hired by the Arryns to offset their losses. Jasper would spend much of the night discussing the plans for the next day with the Arryns and he would find a suprising intelligence in [[Derek Arryn]], and he would make a note in his memory to make sure that William knew of this mans potential. When this was over he and Emmett would leave the command tent of House Arryn and return to their respective Houses where they would be leading their respective attacks. For Jasper that meant he would be fighting alongside his best friend William Lovie as a member of the Praetorian Gaurd, while Emmett would be truly bringing the growing forces of House McCarty to the forefront with his assistence.

{{Quote(1)|I had this feeling of calmness that washed over me that final day. It was a feeling I had not felt the entire time we were planning, and was the calm before the storm.|William Lovie III.}}
During the next day their was an almost awkward silence that fell over the massive army, and nearly the entire command structure of the attacking force as everyone understood that night would signal the attack they had all been preparing for and obsessing over for the past week. During the day House Arryn would silently march its way out of the main camp alongside House Heard, [[House Krinner]], and House Dorin where the would prepare for their invasion of Vlasnia. With their departure William Lovie begin to create a buzz as he once again spent the afternoon visiting as many of his troops and commanders as he could, and it was during the final few hours that he would order the beggining of the attack. When dusk hit he ordered that House Martell led by three daughters would move forward and conseiled in the forest move to the east of the fortress and prepare to board the boats they had made for the purpose of their attack behind the lines. As the Martells left William Lovie would say one last goodbye to his friend Leven Martell, before preparing the main force for the attack on the gate. House Lovie, and House Faraday alongside the [[Order of the Red Dragon]] would form the main attack along the castle while the forces of House Jackson, House Cullen, and House Vaith would attack along the flanks of the castle using heavy artillery to shield their troops who would mainly be using ladders to assail the walls. Alongside this attack would be of cours the House Martell attack which would be assisted as well by the Order of the Violet Dragon who had been busy at work inflitrating the southern gatehouse keep with rebel troops, as well as murdering watch commanders so that the walls would be sparsely defended giving the attackers the most time possible to get on the walls.
{{Quote(1)|The fear of Lord Volermorte arriving was palpable across the entire force. Everyone of us had been told that this man may be no longer mortal, as his power made him nearly a god.|Edward Cullen}}
As the armies of Lucerne massed in the valley the Order of the Violet Dragon moved northward in their entire strength and silently over the course of a few days infiltrated the city of Westbridge. The Order already had sympathizers in the city as House Malfoy was extremely unpopular in Westbridge and as such it wasn't hard to find people that were loyal. With roughly a month before the army of Lucerne was to arrive the forces of the [[Order of the Violet Dragon]] went about changing schedules for the defenders so as to weaken sections of the wall. Those who it was planned to survive the conflict were basically given vacations on the day of the conflict so that they would not be caught up in the conflict. As well as this they begin setting up a rather sophisticated, and well equipped rebel army that on the day of the invasion would be completely focused on taking control of the southern gate.
====<font size="5" face="century schoolbook" color="Black">The Attack</font>====
[[File:Griffin_Assault_-_Invasion_of_Westbridge.png|thumb|400px|The Griffin Assault would bring about the fall of the already weakened tower, and keep defences of the southern gatehouse.]]{{Quote(1)|All the planning, all the effort we had done, and it all came down to this moment. Either we beat them, or they beat us. It was that simple.|William Lovie III.}}
The moment that dusk settled on the skies above the army William Lovie gave the order to begin moving to attacking positions. The siege machines were pushed forward in case the siege didn't work according to plan and they were forced to bash their way through while at the same time the hundreds of ladders, and dozens of siege towers were silently pushed forward as well by dozens of oxen. The siege towers were the main thing that might be noticed and thus they were covered with trees and it was hoped that the darkness and the lack of real defenders on the walls would allow the towers to get nearly to the walls before noticed. As the army pushed forward it was the Griffins of [[House Griffon]] and the Order of the Red Dragon that first hit the defenders as hundreds of Griffin Riders landed in the towers and within the keep of the southern gate and made a mess of the defenders. By the time William Lovie III., and the other members of the main force had reached the gate Tristifer Griffon had placed the flag of Lucerne on the largest tower, and the front gate was being opened by other Griffin Riders.
{{Quote(1)|It was the first time we had truly used the Griffins in this role, and they provided more then I think even we thought they could. I worried they would be shot out of the sky, but they were able to move quick enough and come from a high enough angle that the enemy was blind to them until it was too late.|Tristifer Griffon}}
Tristifer Griffon and his Griffon Riders had broken the defenders and opened the gates allowing the massive force inside the walls, and they proceeded to mop up the remaining defenders of the southern gatehouse. Leaving the southern gatehouse and making their way towards the bridge spanning the mainland to the real city of Westbridge William would stop the army momentarily and await the flags of the rebels to go up on the other side of the bridge. When the flags didn't go up initially there was fear it had failed for the rebels, but a few minutes later the flags went up and the entire main force begin moving across the bridge spilling into the main island.

The defences were by this point collapsing all across the line, and they were greeted by the sights of the rebels holding hundreds prisoner all across the main island. During their movement though William and his center would come under assault from a fanatical group of Deatheaters of whom came directly for the king hoping to kill him. The many lords and knights around him fought at his side as they fought against this final counter assault, and one by one the Deatheaters fell dead as their [[Magi]] was muted by the defences on the runic armor of William, and the several Magi around him. William would as they pushed forward make his way with most of the main army towards the holdings of House Labeouf where they would make sure they were safe, but he sent [[Joshua Jackson]], and the forces of House Skane, and their vassals towards the final holding of Lucius Malfoy of whom they wanted to capture but if he died it would also be fine.

{{Quote(1)|The town was burning around me, and it seemed hopeless to believe we could survive after the arrival of Severus, and the members of Hogwarts from within our ranks. Nothing to do but wait. Nothing to do but wait and hope my family surivived.|Lucius Malfoy}}
With the fall of the final gatehouse into the main city, and the quickly debarking marines from House Starke, and House Lannister the forces remaining under the command of Lucius Malfoy waited for his command, and he ordered them to retreat to the Malfoy Keep for what everyone believed was a last stand. At this moment more then half the remaining men under his command would lay their swords down instead of retreat, and thus Lucius travelled over the bridge with less then thirty men left and ordered the men to prepare for the final attack. He was reported to by a messenger that the Hall of the Deatheaters had just fallen, thus meaning their final means of escaping the city was gone as the forces of Hogwarts alongside the Order of the Blue Dragon had teleported directly inside the building after the wards had been destroyed by traitors within the Malfoy forces. With Westbridge fallen to the forces of Lucerne Lucius saw this as his chance to finally die. As his remaining men prepared to die in the last stand, he knew he had to make sure that his son Lucius wasn't going to make the same mistakes that he did. Lucius first went to his youngest son, and the only one left in his family who he felt had any morals left and told him the following.
[[File:LUCIUS_Malfoy2.jpg|thumb|400px|<font size="2.5" face="century schoolbook" color="White">Lucius had finally come to the end of resistence and understood it was all over for him.</font>]]

No matter what happens son never allow vengeance to consume you or elce you will make the mistake my brother made. I love you son.|Lucius Malfoy}}
Following this he took out his sword and walked to the center of the bridge connecting the main island to the palace, and stood waiting for the forces of Lucerne to come. His men waited around him horrified but still remaining loyal to the end, and in that moment he ordered them to lay their swords down, and return to stand with his family. After a few minutes Joshua Jackson arrived on the bridge with his men, and told Lucius to stand down and accept the surrender of the city. Lucius just laughed at them and said that his time was over, and if they had any compassion they would end him. Joshua knew something about compassion for the weak, and he ordered his men to stand down while he engaged Lucius in a duel. The two fought and as Draco watched on Lucius was killed by Joshua Jackson, and then released gently into the river.
{{Quote(1)|You just never think your hero is going to die. You always assume after reading books, and hearing stories that the hero lives. Either everything I'd ever read, or heard was a lie or my father wasn't the hero. And if he wasn't the hero that means he was the villian. And if he was the villian what does that make me?|Draco Malfoy}}
Joshua would lead his men across the bridge and find the remaining members of House Malfoy and their vassal aristocrats lying on the ground with their swords thrown away. Seeing this he ordered his men to take them into captivity until they knew what to do with them. As the House Jackson men moved to do this, Draco finally came to the conclusion that would change everything. Draco would rise from the rest of the surrendered troops and stand up. His mother would yell at him to lay down, and think about his wife who was in another part of the city, but he had to escape and so he ran from the group and climbed to the top of the House Malfoy keep. Chased by the men of House Jackson, and the now arriving Lovie forces, and the shouting of his mother he would jump from the ramparts into the water nearly thirty feet down barely missing the rocks. Hitting the water he stayed under as long as he possibly could before hiding under the outcropping of rocks so that none could see him. The Jackson men believed he was dead, and thus he managed to escape but left behind much of his family and his wife and young son.
{{Quote(1)|My King we have control of the city. Its truly happened Will, you took Westbridge.|Leven Martell}}
With the death of Lucius the capture of remaining resistence within the final Malfoy keep the city of Westbridge was well and truly fallen into the hands of Lucerne. William would meet with the commanders of the attack at the center of town, and already news filtered in about the fall of Yerness, and the numerous towns south of Wesbridge having fallen as well. Realizing he had a true victory William would have the Labeoufs brought to the center of the town where the large population of the town was brought forward, and from there he named the Labeoufs the new Arch Lords of the Grand State of Westbridge. Promicing to assist in rebuilding the city, the people would chear as the Malfoy`s and their madness was pushed out and the new Lucerne-Labouef union began.

There was only one man in the kingdom who held more power then an Arch Lord, and that was the one man I knew would believe me when I told him about this letter.|Edward Cullen}}
Gemma Cullen would be in a meeting for [[Order of the Blue Dragon]] alongside her cousin Edward Cullen when she was told that a letter had arrived at the Tower labeled for her. She would remain for the meeting and not immediatly get the letter but following the meeting with the Order of the Blue Dragon she had recieved a letter from a Magi from the [[Kirin Tor]] that she had met long before named Medivh and had wished to known if she had an audiance with the King. He asked her that if she did have an audience with the king that she needed to use that right away to give him word of something terrible happening in [[Lorderon]]. When Gemma responsded questioning why Medivh wanted to speak with the King, and what terrible thing this was that was happening in Lorderon he would respond with the truth. He told Gemma in the letter that [[Arthas Menathil|Arthas]] had lost his mind, and was forming a chaos cult of which was growing more powerful each day within the walls of Lorderon, and that unless he was stopped he was going to destroy the entire state.
: Lady Gemma Cullen,
: I am sorry about the rushed nature of my last letter, but the news was not good, and you and your cousin were the only people I knew well enough in Lucerne that were close enough to the king to effect any kind of real change. I am sorry for the history lesson, but you must understood all of this if you are to believe me.
: Arthas Menathil was born, and from that moment forward he was destined to be the king of Lorderon. The people cheered his every move for he was noble, and just in all things that he did. Then like the wind flowing through everything disapeared in him. Where once there was nobility there was now only darkness. His parents would send for a paladin in the north to train him, and we all thought the paladin had been succesful. He wasn`t the same true knight as he was before, but he wasn`t the same violent monster he was before either. I returned to my studies believing all was well, but I have learned it was all a lie. 
: You must understand that men have lost their lives to bring me this information, and now he is chasing me as well. I am not some traitor to the cause of the Menathil`s. I do not wish for gold, or power. I have learned that since he handed over Lorderon to Lucerne he has formed a chaos cult, and is planning to destroy the state in a bloodbath. I do not yet know his end game, but whatever it may be you need to understand only one main thing. It will not be positive.
: My former prince wants the world to burn in the same manner as he burns. He hates all things now and he wants it all to disapear. I cannot stop him alone, and as I said you and your cousin are the only ones I know close to the king. Use what influence you have and speak to the king. If failing this go to your cousin. I warned him years ago of this, and I only hope he is the same person he was when we last spoke.
: Take a leap with me Gemma Cullen and we can save the world together.
:::::::::::: Medivh, Counciller of the Six for the honorable Kirin Tor
Gemma was moved by the letter but she knew that she had no business speaking to the King of Lucerne even if she had been rather friendly with him during their youth. She knew that this couldn't be left unsaid so she responded to Medivh that she couldn't help him but if he talked to Edward Cullen her cousin then he would be able to tell the King himself. She would go to find Edward, and when she did she showed him the letters, and when he saw who they were from he too believed their content. Knowing they were in a very tricky situation Edward would leave immediatly with Gemma for the capital where he would attempt with all that remained of his clout with William to do something about this situation.

Edward Cullen following the meeting with Medivh would go to Lucerne to meet with William but when he arrived he discovered that William had travelled up the mountain to meet with the dragons. Most believed they had seen him for the last time based on the tears flowing from both Alice and Emma, and so he made the decision that he couldn't sit idle while his friend risked everything to save the people of Lucerne. He would travel alongside his wife [[Tanya Cullen|Tanya]] to Hilary's home and while there they came up with the plan of going to Lorderon under the pretend mission of growth of [[Dragonoph]] while in fact investigate the supposed chaos worship of Arthas Menathil. During this time his relationship with Tanya is collapsing, and she shows him little to no affection of which he responds to Gemma he isn't suprised about. Alice suggested that Taylor be the one they use as the center of plan, as she was known far and wide for her Dragonoph beliefs and would be more accepted then the very influencial Edward Cullen. Alice would later in a discussion with William admit that she was trying to distance Taylor from the romantic drama she was beggining to have with Emile Hirsh in Brill, but she didn't want them to know that was a major reason for her being sent. Also realizing they needed more Dragonoph involvement they went to [[Erica Steinmare]] of whom Edward knew of from school, and they got her to lead a contingent from House Steinmare to Brill where they would then move to the Port of Stormwind on their final stop before they went to Lorderon. Erica Steinmare agreed to go, but her brother forced himself into going as her brother hated Edward as he was a close friend of Jaspers and he also took his wife with him of whom had always wanted to see Lorderon and the massive Rhine.
{{Quote(1)|We had to make it look convinsing. If we went there and it looked like we were there for the real reason we were there then who knew what these cultists would do. I wanted to save lives, I didn't want to be the direct cause of the deaths of thousands.|Edward Cullen}}
Taylor Swift would make her first appearance in [[Westros (Book)|Westros]] when Edward Cullen, and the group would arrive in Brill and when they did they told her that he was travelling eastward to deal with Arthas Menathil and he gave her fake orders from William that she is to come with him to Lorderon to help convert the natives. Believing this is just to get her away from Emile she only relunctantly goes along with the command, but her duty to the King and Glaurung force her to go. While they were leaving [[Dylan Steinmare]] would go to Anna Kendrick who he had been friends with during school, and was able to use her hatred of Taylor Swift to convinse her to join them on the trip, and she would come alongside her fiance Emile Hirshe, while on the this news Josh Hirshe her true lover would decide to come as well and the Hirshe's broght some sixty men to add to the group which was getting rather large now. Following this they would travel to [[Lole]] where they would take a boat all the way east to the Port of Stormwind in order to make the final part of their trip to Lordeorn. When they did arrive in Lole they discovered Tanya Cullen awaiting them in the city, and she refused to be left behind, and while this should have been a happy moment for the married couple instead they just argued along the way from Lole to the Port of Stormwind as there marrage had clearly fallen apart. While in the Port of Stormwind Edward would be joined by [[Candice Anthor]] of whom would say that she had been planning a trip to Lorderon in order to arrange a series of trade deals, and this would be the perfect oppurtunity. Convinsed by Hilary, and Gemma that the more people they brought with them with civilian purposes the more real this whole thing looked he would agree to have her come, and Candice brought with her a large contingent of troops on six ships from the Port of Stormwind.

Edward, Taylor, Hilary, Tanya and a small entourage of troops from House Swift, House Steinmare, House Kendrick, House Hirshe, and House Cullen would join the six man fleet of Candice Anthor and her large force as they travelled to Lorderon and after making the trip from the [[Port of Stormwind]], and Edward would set Tanya to the task of making Taylor believe that she was actually there for the purpose they told her she was. Tanya was by this point nearly constantly fighting with Edward, and Edward knew that barking orders at her was only going to make it worse, but a part of him knew the marriage was over and really just wanted to save lives. While Taylor and Tanya visited several Dragon Temples that were under construction in Lorderon, it was Edward and Hilary that visited the Kirin Tor. When they arrived they were met by [[Medivh]] and several of his loyalists and they went about the conversation of how to prove Arthas's madness. Medivh told Edward that in his investigation he had discovered the existence of a group calling themselves the Sons of Lorderon of whom were being potrayed to the public as a revolutionary group wanting independance for Lorderon, but under the surface he discovered that in fact they were a chaos cult founded by Arthas. Edward needed more proof and so Medivh took him and Hilary to a small Kirin Tor Magi tower south of Lorderon where he kept one of the cultists captive.

Taylor, Tanya, Anna, Josh, Emile and the Steinmare's would travel throghout the capital visiting the different Dragon Temples on their first day, and during this time Taylor and [[Emile Hirsh|Emile]] would sleep together nearly the first moment they had alone, and Anna was nearbye and she confronted them on it, and neither would even apologize and she would leave shortly after with Josh in tow. With those two gone they were met by the Steinmare's of whom Taylor watched look with amazement at the newly constructed Temple, and in that moment being held by Emile she knew she had to tell them the truth, and she would reveal to them the true purpose of the trip to Lorderon. Dylan would leave to go find Candice Anthor in order to warn her, and the rest of them would decide they would make the best of it, and expand the Dragonoph as much as possible. Tanya would reveal to Erica Steinmare that she wasn't going to go through with the marriage to [[Josh Hirsh]]e and would marry Emile while the two were here in Lorderon, and Erica gave the two space and left to go and find her brother in the port.

While the main group was looking into the cultists or working to expand the Dragonoph influence in the Lorderon capital Candice Anthor was working at her trade agreement in the port itself. When she begin making her deals and talks with the leading houses in the port she begin to feel that she was being followed, and watched wherever she went, and this led to her going to find Edward of whom she found while he was on the way to the Kirin Tor tower south of the Magi fortress, and he was dismissive wanting to go quickly, and thus he lied to Candice and told her nothing was going on. This made her feel like she was being ridiculous in thinking she was being watched, and thus she let her guard down as the cultists - who were actually watching her heavily as she had brought a large military force into the port - spied on her, and prepared for an assassination attempt on her. During this time though her cousin Hedrin Tolhmave II. would become concerned after he saw several men watching Candice and he followed them, and watched them enter a tavern of which he followed them into, and when he did they entered a back room which after following them led him into a large tunnel system where he would have to kill both of the men after they discovered him following them. Leaving the tavern as quickly as possible he met Dylan Steinmare on the street and together they raced to find Candice Anthor and arrived just as cultists attempted to assassinate her.

The cultists had surrounded the port with nearly thirty men, and once Candice arrived they killed several sentries watching for violence, and then with the way clear they would move forward. As the cultists went to attack Dylan Steinmare, and Hedrin Tolhmave would arrive and scream to the guards that cultists were about and an attack was going to happen, and realizing they had been discovered the cultists would let off a horn and charge forward into the maelstrom. The fighting was intense but the guards now aware were able to repulse the horribly outnumbered cultists of whom had been relying on the shock of their arrival to succeed and Dylan captured one of the cultists but as they were taking him away the man was shot with an arrow from another cultist on a rooftop of whom then was able to escape.

{{Quote(1)|That was the first time I saw evil in its purest form. Medivh was right. It was only after speaking to that one that I understood how limited I had been.|Edward Cullen}}
Arriving at the tower it was Medivh, Edward, Hilary, Gemma, [[Markus Flowers]], and several of Medivh's men and Medivh would lead them as they moved to the top and discovered a single man chained to the floor and roof. Medivh explained to him that this man was evil, and that no matter what he believed after talking to the man he needed to understand that fact alone. He told Edward that everything in life was a choice though and he had the decision to make if he was going to be the man that was tricked by evil, or if he would be able to see evil in all of its forms and be able to defeat it.
: I walked into the room and was shocked to find a man clearly brutalized chained to what was seemingly every piece of the room. "'''''Why has he been chained so many times'''''?"
: "'''''Do not be taken in by what you see on the surface. This man is beyond contempt. He has done things, and planned things that no rational human would ever do.'''''" Medivh walked to the man and raised his head so that we could see his face. His eyes remained closed but I saw nothing in his face that screamed that he was a monster. "'''''His mind is completely the domain of a demon now. Nothing remains of what was once someone's child.'''''"
: I moved closer to the man and as I did he must have realized my presence and opened his eyes. His eyes were sad, and despite the reservations I had due to what Medivh had said I found myself wanting to help this man. "'''''How could you know that?'''''"
: Medivh walked away from the man and stood against the wall for a moment before speaking again. "'''''Edward this is the moment you are going to learn about the demon within all of us. Your demon is slight but still there. You don't know the demon yet and that is something that you need to understand if your going to help your people through this. Talk to the man. Prove me wrong if you can.'''''"
: ``'''How are you so sure that you are right. Surely this could all be some kind of misunderstanding.'''`` I looked to Gemma and Hilary and when I did they had the same look of shock and confusion on their faces that I did. 
: ``'''Edward there is going to come a moment when you are going to have to truly understand evil. You believe you have seen evil because you knew your friends brother. Sean Lovie was just one form of evil. Evil takes many shapes, and forms and it is very important that you understand that not everything evil will appear it at first.'''`` He didn`t say another word just walked away and left me to stand there with this injured man who didn`t look like he could harm a fly.
: I stopped for a moment unsure of how to move forward, but when I looked around for Hilary I saw her waiting. Her eyes showed that she believed in me, and I knew I couldn't fail that kind of trust. Moving closer to the man I kneeled on the floor and spoke. "'''''What is your name?'''''"
: He coughed a bit before speaking "'''''Tilder Meanist of House Meanist.'''''"
: He spoke with an aura of nobility despite the surroundings he was in or the condition, and that made me know very quickly that he was either a well of noble or one used to pretending he was. "'''''What have you done to make my friend believe you a demon?'''''"
: He coughed again this time for a longer period of time before being able to speak. "'''''I woke up and found myself in this tower with that monster doing...doing unimaginable things to my friends. He won't let me explain but I know you'll hear'll believe me won't you?'''''"
: The man sounded utterly frantic, and the way he spoke of his friends made me wonder how much of all of this that Medivh had left out. "'''''You need to tell me before I can say anything.'''''"
: "'''''This man believes me some sort of demon, but I just want the freedom of my people. Your a Lucernian I can tell. Your people were not meant to come here. This land...'''''"He stopped and coughed again before speaking. "'''''This land isn't yours. Listen to me none of that is important right now. That monster has killed all of my men, and left me alone while my family waits for me at home.'''''"
: I looked at Medivh for a moment wanting to understand what was happening here. "'''''What proof do you have Tilder that you are not a cultist?'''''" 
: He looked hopefully at me, and I felt a slight tinge of arrogance come from him "'''''The same proof I told the monster about. Talk to my wife. She will show you that I am who I say that I am.'''''"
: "'''''And if I speak to her and find a different outcome?'''''" I could see Medivh in the corner shaking his head, and for a moment I looked at this young man before me and wondered if he truly was a demon. If he wasn't a demon then Medivh was a liar and that meant all of this could be some sort of trap.
: "'''''Then I am lost and you should kill me.'''''"
: From the look on Medivh's face he told me silently that he knew where his wife was, and would take me to her. "'''''Your putting a lot of faith in how one conversation will go arnt you.'''''"
: "'''''I have faith in what I see your eyes. You are a good soul, and I know you will try and do what is right.'''''"
: "'''''I will speak to your wife, and when that is done we will all know the truth.'''''"
: "'''''The truth will be known by all.'''''"
Edward would be told by Medivh where Tilder's wife lived and the group would leave the tower and go to find the women that Edward silently had no idea what would happen with. On one hand if she was truthful then he would know Medivh a liar. If she was a liar then he was a fool who had been tricked by a demon. On the way to the wife he spoke with Hilary who told him that she felt a horrible taint coming from Tilder. She wondered how he did not feel it, and he wondered why he was unable to sense what clearly so many around him were feeling. Medivh told him that his demon wasn't revealed yet, and when Edward finally understood he would know exactly why he couldn't see what was just beneath the surface.
{{Quote(1)|His wife was nothing more then a ruse meant to kill me. He knew his life was over and yet he wanted me to see death, and I suppose somewhere in his chaos mind he wanted me to see the death that filled that home.|Edward Cullen}}
Arriving at the house Medivh forced Edward to wait until thirty men from the Menathil's arirved, and then he allowed Edward to enter the home. Entering the home he found the skinned bodies of untold number of people all over the walls, and the decaying bodies of a young women, and two children sitting a table in the middle of the home with a giant hole in the ground. Medivh said he would explain everything after the ambush, and moments after this happened cultists came through the roof and a fight broke out which ended with the death of the cultists as the reinforcements were too much for the weakly armed, and trained cultists. Medivh would then explain as they carried away the bodies to be buried that Tilder was once a Magi of the Kirin Tor but had been removed due to the reading of banned Magi's and this had eventually led him to becoming possessed by a demon which had then proceeded to murder his wife and children and become a dangerous serial killer of whom killed dozens in Lorderon before the Kirin Tor finally caught up with him and took him under their custody.

{{Quote(1)|Your grace my time there was filled with so many things, and I want you to know that the Dragon shall be heard throughout all the land soon. The cultists though were dangerous beyond anything I had ever heard of. They had infested the largest Temple in the entire capital and turned it into a den of demons and evil men.|Taylor Swift}}
Following the discovery by Edward that the cultists controlled the massive Great Temple of Lorderon he and his group would travel with Medivh back to the capital where they planned to attack the temple. As this was happening Taylor Swift and the Steinmare's would be told by a Dragon Priest that several Dragonoph worshipers had come to him to admit that they had been members of a cult in Lorderon and that the Great Temple of Lorderon was their headquarters of sorts. Disgusted that a Temple would be used for this purpose and despite the attempts by Dylan and Erica to stop her she would travel to the Great Temple and alongside Laera Steinmare would enter the Temple and using key words learned from the traitor cultists were able to enter the Temple. Entering the Temple they went through a recruitment process of sorts, but things begin to go bad after the cultist leading them around attempted to rape Laera and she stabbed him through the eye killing him and forcing them to hide his body while they escaped the Temple. Finding there way out wasn't easy though, and outside Dylan would meet with Edward telling him what had happened, and learning from Edward how serious the situation was they believed they had the proof they needed but Emile, and Josh Hirshe arrived to tell them that Arthas had left the city with a force in order to supposedly help Arnor, and Marcel Lovie. Edward told Emile, and Josh to go to the keep and force them to recall Arthas, and at the same time attempted to send word to Marcel Lovie of what was happening, but unknown to him the cultists were watching them, and the letters, and ravens were all intercepted meaning Marcel was not warned.
{{Quote(1)|We were but moments from showing him as the monster he was, and yet he slipped between our fingers. I would have killed him myself if I had thought it was possible to get through that kind of layer of guards.|Dylan Steinmare}}
Taylor Swift, and Laera Steinmare at this point would finally make their way out of the temple, but as Laera exited the door Taylor would be knocked on the head and the gate shut causing a siege of sorts as they attempted to break there way into the Temple. Forcing their way into the temple using the troops they had brought, they would fight against dozens of cultists of which forced the involvement of more troops and a battle broke out, but despite victory after the dust had settled they also found that there was no sign of Taylor, because she had been taken to the real home of the cultists of which was a large tunnel system beneath the temple itself. By this point the cultists were aware they had been discovered, and they would begin plans to launch the overall assault on Lorderon, and those traitor cultists would in these last moments release this information to the [[House Menathil|Menathil]] loyalists, or the Lucernians, or also in many cases the Magi of Kirin Tor.
=====<font size="5" face="Impact" color="Black">Captured</font>=====
[[File:Laera_Steinmare_Large.png|thumb|400px]]{{Quote(1)|Edward I am being told that you kept all of this a secret from the people you brought with you, and I guess I wonder now in the privacy of this group...why did you not warn them of the dangers? Do you honestly think Taylor would have gone into that Temple had she of known what awaited her.|William Lovie III.}}
Captured by the cultists Taylor is forced to endure captivity for hours, as the cultists by this point are simply stalling within the tunnel system, and Taylor witnesses the leadership of the cultists flee the grounds to safety, while the few that remain behind in order to show resistence are weak old men, and ones they question the devotion of. During this torture she is somewhat protected by a young cultist of whom stops an older man from raping her, and she is saddened as he tells her of his life, but despite her attempts to get him to surrender he sees no life past this, and leaves her as Edward's force finally breaks into the tunnels. The cultists that are left are weak and are easily defeated leaving Edward in control of the temple, but as soon as he releases Taylor's mouth coverings she reveals to him that nearly all the cultists already fled, and those left were expendable to them. With the cultists destroyed Taylor reveals that the cultists are a part of a chaos cult led by Arthas Menathil of whom has not taken any true forces north to assist [[Marcel Lovie II.|Marcel]] but is in fact taking monsters and demons of whom are planning great destruction. As they attempt to make their way out of the temple they find the route blocked by design, and they are unable to escape by means of the entrance, and instead must make their way through ancient tunnels out of the city. After days of travelling through the tunnels they find themselves in the fields far to the south of Lorderon and a note is left on the edge of the entrance on the body of a soldier with the sigil of House Scarlet on him.
{{Quote(1)|Congratulations on discovering the great secret of Lorderon. You are to be commended for seeing what many before you failed to see, but I must be the one to tell you that is the only thing you did right. You have failed to stop me, and now that failure shall play out in the destruction of Arnor. Perhaps if you had moved quicker. Perhaps if you had been smarter your people in Arnor wouldn't be dead.|King Arthas Menathil}}
Edward became infuriated by this and the realization that it was already well to late to save Marcel, or to do any of the good things that he knew in his mind he had to do in order to regain what he had lost. The army of Arthas had left nearly a week ago, and he knows that a raven will never reach [[Arnor]] in time to do any good, and he breaks down crying for his continued failure. Eventually calming down the group gathers themselves and make their way to a nearby village where they receive horses and make their way back to Lorderon to warn Arnor of the coming chaotic army. Back in the city Laera, Erica, and Dylan Steinmare retreat to the Menathil Palace, and rally the Lucernians to their cause as well as sending out word of the what everyone now knows will be a very large attack on Lorderon by a unknown amount of cultists. Candice Anthor in the port itself sends word to [[Kul Tiras]] in order to have them send aid, and it is this quick thinking that would eventually save the city, as noone in Lorderon had been willing to ask Kul Tiras for help due to the bad blood between Lorderon, and Kul Tiras as of late.

House Anthor
House Anthor is a a large and powerful Vandal House located inside the port of Stormwind within the Kingdom Of Lucerne. House Anthor is the vassal of House Lovie, and for this reason they have always been quite powerful through this relationship, and are often held beside House Martell, and House Highmore as the most loyal of the House Lovie vassals. House Anthor grew exponensially when they were given the control of the newly constructed Port of Stormwind, and through this port they have become one of the most powerful houses in the entire Kingdom of Lucerne when before they were a middling house. This power increase they hold directly because of House Lovie, and their leadership under Varian Anthor is dire hard loyalists to House Lovie without question or resolve.

House Anthor was once a member of House Ordos but following the marriage of Nevia Ordos to a commoner they travelled north to Lucerne where he was knighted and founded a knightly house which following his success in the Driving Tide became a vassal of House Lovie. As a vassal of House Lovie House Anthor became especially powerful and wealthy, but the land they controlled west of Lucerne wasn't the best of places so they were in the middle wrung of the houses of House Lovie. The fate of House Anthor changed dramatically after they were given the control of the Port of Stormwind, and thus overnight they were one of the most powerful houses in the entire Kingdom of Lucerne.

I need you to escort my daughter west. These are dangerous times and I need a man I can trust to do this. Can I trust you Robin?
Varian Anthor
With House Anthor rising very high in power following the founding of Anthor it was Varian Anthor that would use this new power to influence House Onggrill to finally accept the long standing betrothal between his beloved daughter Candice Anthor and Morgon Ongrill. Having succesfully used his influence to force this it was Candice Anthor of whom would following the founding of Anthor be sent to Castle Ongrill in order to marry her betrothed Morgon Ongrill of whom had finally accepted that the decision to marry was outside of his control. Despite having accepted his fate whatever love he had for Candice had gone away following the discovery that she had cheated on him during their betrothal, and had not only fallen in love with the man but had also mothered a child with the man. Candice traveled westward escorted by Robin Highport of whom had been asked to accompany Candice as a favor for Varian and Robin saw this as an easy way to travel to see Vanessa of whom he had learned had gone back to the Lucernian estate for House Cleef alongside her brother in order to assist in the passing of the estate to a newly founded knightly house. While travelling on the road the emotionally upset Candice would spend most of the time flirting with Robin and while he was nice to her he was dismissive of this but she continiued and while camped on the road she attempted to sleep with him but he would resist her causing her to flee his tent.

After being embarrassed by the refusal of Robin to sleep with her she ran away from the camp and her escorts and was captured by a group of soldiers that had been following them and the men would be revealed to be led by Thomas Grestife a bannermen of House Jestife and this force would quickly take her back to the House Grestife castle where they awaited their next direction from House Jestife. On the road with Thomas Grestife it was Candice that for the first time realizes the consequences of her actions and tried to bed Thomas to let her go but Thomas despite feeling bad for what he was doing was unwilling to help her and thus the two made it back to Castle Grestife. While held a hostage at Castle Grestife she would be treated well by Lord Reginald Grestife of whom showed himself to be an honorable man but was driven heavily by the oaths of loyalty he swore to the king and by extension House Jestife and he attempted to explain this to Candice but she refused this line of argument telling him that William was the king now and everything done against him was treason. Several days after her capture it was Jeremy Jestife the man who had taken the lead on the capture of Candice Anthor who would arrive in Castle Grestife and he would arrive revealing that the plan was for her to swear herself to their cause and then travel back to Anthor and murder her father and brother and thus become the lady of House Anthor. When she refused this outright it was Jeremy that unlike her previous captors he did not treat her well instead depriving her of luxury and then when she continued to refuse he had her stripped and he would threaten sexual violence if she did not comply within two days.

House Cleef is a heavy producer of Tin, and silver of which they mainly trade southward to Rome, but have made some trade deals in the northern direction as well.

House Cleef was knighted alongside House Anthor and during this time they were devestated by disease and lost many of their members thus leading to them becoming a vassal of House Anthor. This position would pay off after the Journey when House Anthor was given command of the newly created state of Anthor while House Cleef was given command of the province of northern Anthor.
