Hur-Arthas Menathil IV. is the son of Tenamil, and Lianne Menathil making him a member of House Menathil. Arthas has two siblings in the form of Calia, and Talia Menathil of which Calia is a very important and beloved figure in the city of Lorderon, and Talia Menathil is married into the core of Lucerne and thus has become drifted from her once close relationship with Lorderon and now lives in the Port of Stormwind. Since the annexation of Lorderon by the Kingdom of Lucerne he has become the Lord of Lorderon which is a very important figure in Lucerne.

Arthas was born a boy with a lot of potential to be a great prince for the Kingdom of Lorderon, and was born during an extremely peaceful and growth based time for Lorderon as a whole. All of this potential wouldn't make him vain or arrogant either and he became extremely popular amongs the population of Lorderon and many waited patiently for his coming to power. When he was fourteen though he was cursed by Kel'Thuzad with a curse that had the end goal of making him begin to suffer voices in his mind that were dark, and violent in their point of view. Arthas would be bethroded to Jaina Proudmoore of whom travelled from Kul Tiras and met the young prince and the two would come to be very close. When they both turned sixteen they were married in a grand marriage in the capital of Lorderon attended by many of the most powerful in Europe all coming to see the union of the heir of Lorderon. As time went by though he became afflicted by the curse set on him by Kel'Thuzad and afriad of the consequences he kept it a secret, until unfortunatly it was too late for the curse to be stopped. After the darkness overwhelmed him on several occasions Uther Lightbringer was brought south from the Lorderon allies of Arnor and would train with Arthas becoming a sort of father figure to the young man, but also discovering the darkness that lay in his soul. After Uther told his parents of the evil Uther would leave Lorderon and return to Arnor where he planned to find a way to heal young Arthas, but before he could Arthas fled Lorderon and went north to Arnor where he would attempt to meet with Uther. Unable to meet with Uther Arthas resisted his darkness believing this was the reason that Uther wouldn't see him, and this led to many years of unimaginable pain for the young prince who was forced to use every ounce of strength he had to resist th torturas whispers in his mind. Believing he could no longer hold on anymore he would secretly murder his parents by poison thus making himself King of Lorderon, and in his first action he would allow the Kingdom of Lucerne under the leadership of Lucerne to take control of Lorderon. All of the travel shattered his control and he retreated into the chasms of the capital for many months completely hidden from the public and his beloved Jaina Proudmoore. In his own self made prison the ruling of Lorderon fell to his wife, and his family and he remained in his self made prison for nearly a year until Kel'Thuzad was able to infiltrate the tomb and did vile Magi on the young prince basically shattering all that remained of his humanity outside of a small sliver which no matter what Kel'Thuzad did he could not remove. Now calling himself the Lich King he came out of his prison and took control of the leadership of Lorderon, and during this time he outwardly made those around him believe he was the great prince again, but Jaina didn't believe him and neither did Medivh of the Kirin Tor. Arthas during this time created his own chaotic army beneath him of whom he used for his eventual goals of travelling to the north where the voices in his mind told him he would find a sword of immense power and thus the ability to conquer the world. When Arnor was attacked by The Empire he saw his chance to leave without a fight, and would leave a sizeable amount of his forces in Lorderon knowing he could raise whatever he wanted in the graveyards of Arnor, and he left mere days before Edward Cullen had discovered the full extent of his treachery. Travelling north into Arnor he would kill all those within his army and they were reborn as the first members of the Scourge and as they moved they raised the dead wherever they found them before finally arriving in southern Arnor. Attempting to find Uther Lightbringer he would instead find Marcel Lovie and he would lead his army in a massacre of the emperian and Lucernian forces present along with killing many important characters in the story. Travelling northward he would destroy multiple empire armies and raise them into his massive horde before he finally arrived in Denmark. Arriving in Denmark he threaned the elector count into allowing him to cross the mighty Copenhaggen bridge and into Swedan where he would enter with his hundreds of thousands strong army in his final search for the sword his demon told him of.

Characteristics

Personality

On the surface Arthas appears to be the same kind and intelligent man he has become known as, but underneath and to many of the closest to him his change is dramatic. The death of his father clicked something in his brain, and where once he rejected the violent thoughts in his mind, he now is becoming open to listening.

Arthas Menathil was a man of action during his young adulthood where he was seen as - brave, impulsive and straightforward. He was an inspiring leader, leading his men by example as especially seen during his actions during the Valerian Conflict. In conversations with other characters, he appeared witty and easy-going, yet able to hold true to his decisions and make others accept them. On the other hand, Arthas was vindictive and occasionally lost control (as described in the letter below). He never took well to losing and had difficulty admitting his mistakes. He always sought the approval of others (such as his father) and often felt under appreciated. He could not stand the thought of others betraying his trust, going as far as making Jaina promise never to deny him anything.

History

Early History

Arthas and jaina memories by pika4ever-d31yf5h.jpg
The birth of Arthas Menathil was heralded throughout the Kingdom of Lorderon by trumpets and crying women in the streets. Upon his birth all the fears that the Kingdom would end were gone, and people obsessed over how good a King he would be when he grew up. In the end he would sell us to Lucerne and then spark a civil war that nearly destroyed us.
Blain Vandertest

Arthas Menathil was born inLorderon proper to his loving parents who were the King and Queen of Lorderon. Arthas was born a boy with a lot of potential to be a great prince for the Kingdom of Lorderon. All of this potential wouldn't make him vain or arrogant either and he became extremely popular amongs the population of Lorderon and many waited patiently for his coming to power.The young man would gain nothing but confidence as he grew older. His confidence could at sometimes go a little to far and many spoke of his arrogance, but overall there were very little complaints about the direction that the prince was going. At the age of fifteen he was involved in a series of conflicts against the forces of Valeria of whom the Kingdom of Lorderon was always at odds against. During this time he came to meet House Proudmoore during the fighting and the Lord of this House would introduce him to his baby daughter in the form of Jaina Proudmoore.

She was the most beautiful baby I had ever seen. Her eyes sparkled at me in a way that I could never quite shake. It was in that moment that I fell in love with Jaina, but it would be years before I saw her again, and when I did she was no longer a baby.
Arthas Menathil

It would be years before he saw her again, and during this time he had gained even more renown for his fighting, and leadership skills. Jaina watched silently from the background as the stories about this man increased, and even though she was a babe when he had seen her for the first time she loved him. When she turned fifteen her father finally allowed her to travel to Lorderon, and once there she joined the Kirin Tor, where she believed she could catch his eye through her skill. For two years she trained extremely hard in Magi, and when she finally believed she could impress him she sought him out while he was south of the city defending a village against bandits. In this first meeting since she was a babe, he recognized her immediately, and simply walked up to her and caressed her cheek which she responded to by leaning into him.

The Corruption of Arthas

The Corruption of Arthas
Such a simple thing it is to destroy a mind. I could have killed a thousand men, women, and children and never had the effect on the world that I did when I destroyed one man's mind.
Kael'Thuzad.jpg
It was as if one day I was a free man, and then the next I was plagued by a mind that was no longer free. The voices plagued me on a daily basis, but I was smart enough to know what happened if you were to tell anyone that you heard voices and I was arrogant enough at the time to believe I could fight past them.
Arthas Menathil

Underneath this aura of arrogance was a young man who was struggling with voices in his mind, that told him to do some truly evil things. While he always rejected what they said, he found as time went on the voices were harder and harder to ignore. He had unknowingly become cursed by a powerful Kirin Tor Magi named Kael'Thuzad, who was a servant of Sauron and wished to create another bastion of Mordor above the already weakening Gondor. This curse caused him to have an ever increasingly violent and sadistic voice in his mind that made him want to do dark things with his life, instead of the nobility that once filled the people's heart with hope for the future.

The Coming of Uther

Uther Lightbringer.gif
Son I want to introduce you to Uther Lightbringer. He comes from Arnor and he will train you in the ways of being a true knight. Listen to him son, for he will be of great influence upon you.
Arthas Menathil

In the hopes of changing this growing personality trait his parents brought in a man with a lot of experience in training young knights. They hired for a full year the assistance of Uther Lightbringer. Uther was a paladin from Arnor, and while he wasn't a top level commander of the Silver Knights which are the paladin order in Arnor, he was a notable paladin. With Uther as his trainer, the arrogance that Arthas had appeared to dissipate, and at times just appeared as overconfident. With the complete 360 accomplished Arthas's parents prepared for the release of Uther with a confidence they hadn't known in years. This farewell would be tempered when Uther came to see them first. The public, and for that matter no one outside of the three of them heard the conversation, but Uther told them of his fear for Arthas's sanity.

Your boy is going to be a great man. And in my brief time here I have grown to love him as if he was my own son. But saying this I must make you aware that young Arthas has a very high tendency for violence against though's he perceives as his enemies. Now while he could on a small level control this and only use it with his true enemies. I foresee a darker path. In my heart I fear what it would mean to stay beside him. I fear for my soul. I fear for us all.
Uther Lightbringer

To say the King and Queen were shocked was an understatement. The two quickly asked Uther to leave the Kingdom, of which he did the next day. Arthas was beyond confused why Uther had left before his time was done, and when after months of trying to get the answers from his parents he finally lost his inner control, and ran away from Lorderon and headed north to Arnor to discover the truth for himself.

Seeking Help

Travelling north.jpg
That was the longest trip of my life. The whole time she's smiling at me with pure love in her eyes, and all I can hear in my head is the voice wondering what her face would look like without lips.
Arthas Menathil

Arthas had wanted to travel alone, but Jaina refused to let him go without her, so the two traveled the road and were at this point completely in love with each other. Jaina had fears that Arthas was becoming evil, but this man she was with appeared fully in control, with no hints of the violence he had told her about before Uther.

Arriving in Gallheim

After a week of travelling on the road northward the pair finally reached the city of Gallheim and were met by a party of Empire solders who happened to be led by a priest of Sigmar . The priest is said to have physically recoiled in fear of the evil he felt in front of him, and the priest quickly forced the pair to move past Gallheim towards their goals.

Arriving in Talheim

Arriving at Talheim should have been a moment of joy for Arthas but the voices in his head were pounding him with violent images, and eventually his mind became so overwhelmed that he passed out and had to be carried for nearly a mile by Jaina. When they finally reached Talheim Arthas would be taken into the palace grounds by Uther who met him with a large number of Paladins and Priests in order to try and help Arthas. Days later with Arthas still not awoken and Jaina was becoming so desperate that she convinced Uther to try and help Arthas and bringing together the Priests, and Paladins they would try and remove the demon from Arthas. Hours of working summoning spells, and chanting prayers they would unknowingly be fighting against the combined forces of Kael'Thuzad who was being assisted by Sauron and thus they were tricked into believing they succeed and Arthas would awaken completely clear in his mind and everyone was overjoyed they had fixed him.

You need to understand how fickle life is. You love this thing, and I believe you want to protect her. Do or say another thing that might threaten my existence and I will eat her while you watch.
Demon within Arthas Menathil

The pair would stay in Talheim for several days before beginning the journey back south to Lorderon where they would stay in Tyke. It was while Jaina slept that Arthas was confronted in his sleep by the curse once again of whom threatened him one last time to never again try to remove him or else he would kill Jaina. Rejecting this threat and preparing to wake her to return to Talheim the demon would take control of his body showing the full extent of his influence and this horrified Arthas of whom agreed to keep everything a secret.

Lorderon-Valerian-Arnor War

Main Article : Munchen War

Lorderon-Valerian-Arnor War
It was like this constant ache in my head the entire time I was in Forks. Something felt wrong but I could just never place my finger on the reason behind it. While I lived this fake life I just kept living within my dreams.
Leighton Zegers Cover1.jpg
If we could arrange ourselves closer to the southern people then we would finally have a pathway away from the Teutons grasp.
Leighton Zegers

The Empire of Valeria had for generations fallen under the sphere of influence of The Empire and under King Trance Zegers they had sought a way out of this and thus had worked diplomatically to move closer to the Kingdom of Arnor forging relationships through marriage with the Arnorians including most notably Martivian Zegers III., and Illiana Hemsworth of whom were married creating an alliance between Arnor and Valeria of which led to many other ideas for alliances including the one that would change the entire region when Leighton Zegers would plan a marriage between House Zegers and House Menathil from the Numenorian Kingdom of Lorderon. Following the secret agreement of betrothal between Calia Menathil and Kevin Zegers it would be Arturas Zegg who would leave the capital of Valeria in order to accompany his younger half brother Kevin of whom is planning to travel southward in order to fufill this betrothal and in this journey Kevin is planning to become a true man, and thus on the begging of his brother's departure he is going to travel by boat to Lorderon leaving Kevin to travel alone on the road. His departure from Munchen is met by great sadness by his family outside of his father of whom is shown to have little love for him, but his fathers wife Nycissisa is shown to be very loving towards him. Following his and Kevin's departure from Munchen they are escorted to the Goet capital port city of Tilmeer where Kevin will take a boat to Noveria and then make his way southward on his own while Arturas will go by boat straight to Lorderon. Saying goodbye to his brother Kevin it is shown that Kevin continues to be a funny young man with a strong sense of loyalty to his family and the two siblings depart as best friends. Remaining in Tilmeer for several weeks knowing how long it will take for Kevin to reach Lorderon trying to get there by land all the way to Riverun he grows close to several members of the Goet noble family in the form of House Tinglestad.

The entire time I was riding I was just so excited about the possibilities. Before I left Valeria it seemed the entire world was open to me. I loved life, and it was only after returning that I came to understand that my ride to Lorderon was the best moment of my life
Kevin Zegers

Kevin would travel by horse on his own as his first test, and he would be tested many times on the road. He made his first stop in Westbridge, and during his brief stop there he made notes about the harshness of the leading House Malfoy, and planned to address this when he had the chance one day. He would go further south into the Riverlands, and while he was crossing a bridge he was stopped by Highwaymen who wanted him to pay a toll. The leader would try and stop the hustle when he noticed the powerful sword carried by the young man and feared he was some kind of noble, but his men saw it differently and wanted the sword for themselves. A scuffle would break out and after a brief fight Kevin killed the bandits two men, and took the bandit as his prisoner. He and the bandit would travel together and reached the port of Riverrun where Kevin prepared to let the bandit go, but instead he said that his name was Tanden Snow a bastard from Lucerne and he wanted to remain under Kevin`s service until he wasn`t needed anymore. Kevin would accept the offer and together they traveled to Lorderon together.

Natalie Portmane3.jpg
He didn`t care a thing about who I was, and I guess that was the first time someone had ever just ignored me being lowborn. I knew he was a highborn, and he knew I wasn`t. I could never understand why he cared so much, but I wasn`t going to question too much why a handsome prince wanted me.
Natalie Portmane

Kevin Zegars arrival in Lorderon was greeted by the entire royal court of Lorderon as they wanted a strong marriage between Kevin and one of their daughters to cement a relationship between House Zegars, and House Menathil. While he was getting introduced to the noble family he was escorted by Natalie Portmane to his room, and they would talk for some time becoming friends. As he knew noone outside of Arturas Flowers he and Natalie grew very close, and she came to love the kindness that Kevin showed her and the fact that he didn`t look down on her for her lowborn status. Her relationship with Kevin was one that quickly grew into love, and through this love her family and his saw lots of oppurtunities.

Natalie knew I loved her but that didn`t seem to matter to any of my family. I could feel her slipping away from me each day and it made me scared beyond anything I had ever felt before.
Kevin Zegars

Natalie and Kevin grew so much in love that they together begin discussing the possibility of marriage, and Kevin at first saw little hope after sending a raven to his brother and hearing back that their was little chance the marriage would be approved of. When he told Natalie about this she was beyond sad, and they drifted apart for a time. Without Natalie he didn't feel like himself and thus he left the city and went home where he hoped to convince his parents and brother about the logic of his decision. Despite the fact that she was a lowborn Kevin had talked his parents into ignoring this and allowing him to marry her a feat that was difficult due to how stubborn his family was. When he returned to Lorderon he was so excited to tell Natalie about what he had accomplished for them but he found that she had changed somewhat in his time gone from loving him to caring little about his presence. It would take time but he would follow her and discover her meeting with Chris Hemsworth and in that moment he knew what had changed.

Natalie Portmane7.jpg
As so many wars before it the war in Munchen was started over a beautiful women.
Arthas Menathil

It was during this time that fate would have it Natalie began to see Chris Hemsworth the Prince of Arnor and a man of incredible importance. Chris had taken to the role of traveling with the major trading envoys between Arnor, and on one of these trips he met up with Natalie. Eventually the two fell in love which caused Keven Zegers to slowly become overcome with hatred towards Natalie. Where once there was affection, there was now only malice. Natalie was alone in her room one night when Kevin who she barely thought of anymore with the same lust and love as before entered silently into her room. Kevin begged to know what she was doing, and why she would hurt him in this manner. She knew she couldn't give him the anwsers that he wanted so she attempted to appease the situation by delaying the inevitable and she denied that their was anything romantic between herself and Chris. When the next day he followed her when she went to meet with Chris he watched as the two had sex, and thus he knew that she was a liar. Eventually after numerous confrontations with Natalie, and Chris the situation boiled over. At first Kevin attempted to find ways to have Chris removed but he quickly realized that he couldn't beat him in a fight and he was also constantly gaurded by his personal gaurd. With this out of the way of possibility his anger now completely focused on Natalie Portmane of whome he begin to have increasingly violent, and sadistic dreams about.

Natalie Portmane LARGE.jpg
I could no longer justify why she remained his. He was a lesser man, and everyone knew that. They all whispered to me that he was tricking her in some way. I knew not what sort of Magi he controlled but I would save her from her torment if it killed me.
Kevin Zegars

Kevin in his desperation was tricked by many of the nobles of Lorderon of whom told him lies that Natalie was in fact not interested in Chris but was infact being tricked into the action by some kind of Magi. At first not belieing this and being lost in sadness, he became so depressed that the lies begin to ring true to him. He started watching her during the night while she was intimate with Chris, and as the madness of his depression grew he came to create many signs that she did in fact hate Chris and longed for him to save her. He would wait weeks until Chris left to return to Arnor where he was getting permission to marry Natalie, and he prepared his plan to rescue Natalie from the prison he now truly believed she was living in. The night finally came for Kevin and he tried to sneak out but Arturas was awoken by Kevin sneaking out of their room and following him he sees he is returning to Natalie's room where he watches from the window as Kevin has already got inside the room and is hiding in the closest and he watches Natalie speak to her brother Jaime about her love for Chris Hemsworth and then following Jaime leaving Kevin comes out of the closest and while at first begging her to love him. She was so shocked that he was there and the madness that he was spewing that she called out for Chris to save her, and this tore away at much of the lies that Kevin had built up causing him to lash out at Natalie, and following this everything devolves very quickly and Kevin tries to rape her but before he can, and before Arturas is forced to shoot his own brother with a crossbow to stop him Jaime returns and the two fight nearly killing Kevin before Arturas comes in and saves Kevin dragging him away after locking Jaime in the closet. Kevin would be carried by Arturas into the canals beneath the city where he would recuperate his strength and together the two would leave the city. Back with Natalie the situation was chaotic with Lianna Menathil convinsing the King that this was an act of war and thus triggering the war between Lorderon and Valeria.

Running Away

At 19 she ran away from Lorderon following the attack by Kevin Zegers. She arrived in Arnor nearly two weeks after she left and when she arrived she was greeted at the gates by the pained face of Chris Hemsworth who on one hand was thrilled that she had come to him but on the other knew that the reason behind it wasn't going to be a good one.

When Kevin arrived back in Munchen he was absolutely covered in blood, and was clasping the ruined pieces of Natalie's clothes. He went on a long tirade about what happened, and realizing what he had atleast attempted to do, and hearing him laugh about how he was going to get away with it was too much for Emily.

The War Begins

Main Article : Munchen War

Kevin's Crossbow would set off war between Valeria and its two powerful neighbors.

Madness brought us to the brink of destruction. Two nations fighting eachother over the madness of a single boy. A boy who remained silent and pathetic throughout the entire conflict.
Chris Hemsworth

Following the attempted rape of Natalie Portmane, and the blaten assault on the citizens of Lorderon it was the position of both Arnor, and Lorderon that the Empire of Valeria owed an apology to them. When diplomats from Lorderon, and Arnor arrived in Munchen in order to hear the apology of the Empire of Valeria everything went according to plan as Scot Zegars would meet with them and attempted to smooth things over. Promises of financial restitutions were made, and the diplomats were prepared to leave when Kevin Zegars stormed into the room and shot the Lorderon diplomat through the chest with a crossbow before several of his cronies stepped in as well and killed the remainder of the diplomatic envoy. Scotty would repremand his brother and the cronies of Kevin were arrested, but the damage was completely too much for talk. The moment news reached Lorderon, and Arnor of the massacre they would mass their troops and call upon their allies to assist them in liberating Valeria from the madness of Kevin Zegars. 

The campaign was filled with piss and vigor, and noone seemed to notice that there was a really dangerous element in the form of what side The Empire took. If The Empire decided they wanted to support their ally even though they were wrong, then this could get out of hand really quickly.
Jonas Hemsworth

Chris Hemsworth would lead the army of western Arnor into the conflict, and they would quickly put the city of Munchen under siege as they bypassed the other villages and forts of the Empire of Valeria. As this happened the forces of Lorderon moved up the Rhine and would land on the southern side of Munchen where they too would join the siege. The two forces laid down heavy artillery against the defenders, and Scotty realized very quickly they were going down if things kept moving in this direction.

The Goet Betrayal
Ludgera Tinglestad Cover1.jpg
I understand completely the decision I am making here son. I have chosen your survival over your love. I could not sleep at night if I made the decision to join your family in what is most likely going to be death. If my decision to side with those who will keep your life means that I lose your love, then honestly I can sleep softly at night.
Erwin Tinglestad

Having returned to Valeria through Goet it is Arturas Zegg that is forced to deal with the reprecutions of the arrival of the Kingdom of Lorderon in the southern region of Goet and this forces him to begin planning for the defence of the Kingdom. His planning comes to an end when he summoned to the council room of the King of Goet and told by the King that the Kingdom of Goet will not be marshaling its troops for the defence of Munchen, and will allow the Lordeorn forces to cross their lands without stopping them. Unwilling to let his family languish without helping them he goes to leave the room but is arrested by the Goet Palace Guard in order to make sure that he doesn't leave the capital and travel to Munchen where members of House Tinglestad worry that he will die alongside the remainder of his family. Shocked over what is happening Erwin Tinglestad enters the room and reveals that he has sided against the Kevin Zegers forces and for this has chosen to imprison Arturas in order to protect him from death. Getting very angry over being restrained he is eventually knocked out by the guards, and then wakes up in a cell with Ludgera holding his hand.

Leighton Versus the Rebels
Leighton Zegers Wide.jpg
This cannot. This will not end here. You turn on my brother and this will only lead to madness and death.
Leighton Zegers

Arriving at Ebonheart she meets with the royal family of Ebonheart in the form of king Ilrin-Endrian Ghoellion, and prince Tar-Edrian Ghoellion of whom are very nice to her in their meeting but are vague in their decision on who they shall support, but invite her to a dinner that night where they will be making there decision, and as she is shown to her quarters she spots several guards of House Tinglested of whom she approaches seeing prince Adelhard Tinglestad of whom she goes to. Speaking with Adelhard she is unable to get him come right and say anything but he does reveal that he will be sadly her enemy at the dinner, and hearing this Leighton realizes that there is a resistence afoot to turn against the Kingdom of Munchen and more importantly against her brother Scott.

Frenlick Assault of Valeria
Er-Lhossia Iallril Cover.jpg
This is what centuries of hatred looks like. We have never forgotten. We have never stopped looking for our vengeance. Its taken years upon years, but here it is.
Robin Farrin

Sencing the weakness of the Valerian Empire it would be Tari-Frenlin Farrin the Monarch of the Republic of Frenlick that would go before the Senate of Frenlick and put forth the plan of action to attack the Kingdom of Valeria and free the Atlantians of the Kingdom as well as take control of the coasts of the Kingdom. Following the agreement of the Senate of Frenlick it would Robin Farrin would follow his fathers command when he joined his older brother Tur-Grondlin in invading the Kingdom of Valeria of which was the northern element of the Empire of Valeria. The Frenlick made landfill around the Atlantian cultural capital of Ae'lehn where it would be joined by the rebellious Atlantians of the region who were extremely supportive of the Frenlick invasion. During this initial invasion one of the most important of the early battles was the Battle of Castle Ventellia where the forces of the Frenlick Elur Er-Neithril Iallril of whom alongside her daughter Er-Lhossia Iallril would lead a dozen Elur and sixty Frenlick Knights and a thousand men at arms into a sneak assault on the castle which allowed the only land route movement north into Valeria. during the events of the Lorderon-Arnor-Valerian War, and during the fighting they would take the Valerian capital of Thornstall.

Coming of The Empire

Malflovia Cover1.jpg
The City was in ruins as we had been rocked by catapult fire for nearly a month before we were relieved. The worst part was that he didn't even care. No apology no nothing. He proved to me that day that he was useless.
Scotty Zegars

Following her failure to gain the support of both Ebonheart, and Trasnet it would be Leighton riding out of the walls of Trasnet Castle with tears in her eyes over her failure, but as she rides down the road with her personal guards she realizes that she cannot return to Munchen with failure as if she does they will lose the war and her brother will die, and thus she makes a decision to find assistance even if it means going outside of Valeria. Leighton having left Trasnet made her way down the road when her guard says they stop as they are almost at the city, and riding slowing over the hill she spots the massive city stretched out in front of them. Riding through the gates of the city it is revealed to be Nuln the capital of Austria and as they ride they make their way to the palace where they reach and upon reaching she demands to see the elector count. The chapter ends with Leighton woken in her room by a knock at the door and opening the door she is met by Fulco Troy of whom leads her to the palace chamber where meeting with Priam Troy they discuss that Austria will support Valeria if the Arnor-Lorderon alliance attacks them, and hearing this Leighton realizes that she has saved her brother and as Priam discusses the rallying of the army of Austria she leaves the palace re-joining her guards as they make there way back to Munchen. Two weeks into the siege though a messenger arrived at the camp of the army of Arnor from The Empire that dictated that in two days they would arrive and clear the battlefield if necessary. Chris's scouts reported that the force incoming was far larger then theirs and that news was coming in that Thedas, Tevinter, and other Kingdoms of Thedas were moving to mobilize as well. Realizing that the alliance had no hope of defeating those forces in this manner he ordered the general retreat and sent word to Lorderon's forces to retreat as well. Before he left he approached the walls and attempted to get Kevin to fight him in a duel but when that proved hopeless he simply threatened Kevin Zegars before leaving the young prince horribly embarrassed.

Scotty Zegars

Inside Munchen the damage was extensive and the forces of Valeria were badly damaged emotionally by the weakeness shown by Kevin Zegars. Scotty Zegars over the incident was forced to exile his brother Kevin - of whom he would not speak to again after this day - to the eastern side of Valeria in the form of the fort of Valeria. On top of exiling his brother he rounded up much of Kevin's friends and supporters from the capital of Munchen and throughout Valeria and had them judged on their guilt. Many of them were found guilty and sent to the dungeons of Munchen where they would toil till they were dead. It was this last act that burned Kevin the most as he didn't particularly care about Munchen, and wanted to get away from his siblings anyway but it was the loss of his servents that sent him over the edge. Despite the peace treaty between the forces of Valeria, and Lorderon the war would continue in the north of Valeria as a part of the agreement had been that the Valerian-Frenlick conflict would be left to be resolved by the two combatants.

Jaina Proudmoore

Following his conflict with the forces of Valeria Arthas felt a sence of failure that he had never known before, and his strained relationship with Jaina wouldn't allow him the support that he needed in this time. This support became filled with one of his mother's handmaiden's in the form of Diane Portmane. The two begin engaging in a sexual affair which Arthas came to rely on as a means of getting his stress out. For Diane she saw that her entry into the Menathil court was complete and she understood that she was one step closer to her goal of meeting the other side of her family. With Natalie in Arnor, and James very diligant with his training she has a one track mind towards rejoining the family she feels she was robbed of. As she grew closer to Arthas and they continued their romantic affarir, she became pregnant with his child shortly before the death of his father, and when she told him she menipulated him into accepting this child and he was preparing to leave Jaina when she miscarried the child. With the blackmail she was using now gone she was cast away from Arthas, and she found herself on the outs in the court.

As his mind completely drifted out of its old self he began to dress himself in a suit of armor that he fashioned for himself. The armor was extremely dark, and as he became more and more seen with this new darker armor the people amongst him became very conserned about him. He disregarded these worries and used this Lord powers to create himself a powerbase at the top of the Lorderon leadership. Those with morals, and quams about the way Lorderon was run found they were pushed out of their positions. As of this point the Dragon Orders of Lucerne had not yet been given the commendations to enter Lorderon until two more years had passed so for this reason Arthas was able to create a government run by himself and his cronies in little less then a month.

Banishment of Jaina

Jaina Proudmoore

After months of trying to to fix the issues with Arthas she discovered that the corruption was brought on by Elu-Kael Thuzad and she brought this information to Arthas overjoyed that she had finally found a cure, but meeting with Arthas she realized that he was no longer interested in changing and when she threatened to kill Kael Thuzad he beat her and then realizing what he had done he banished her from Lorderon sending her back to Kul Tiras.

This right here is a line. If you cross that line my friend we are going to have issues. Stay away from Arnor. Leave it to its own devises and our two nations can have peace...If you threaten them, then I'm going to threaten you....It is that simple.

Austrian Invasion of Arnor

Battle of Krost

Main Article : Battle of Krost

I could look out in the morning over the wall, and for a moment I couldn't see them. For a few moments they were hidden behind mist, and the trees. In those moments I liked to imagine the situation was different. I liked to think that my brother was still alive, and the world was at peace.
Liam Hemsworth

As the Empire invaded southward into Arnor the fortress of Krost was one of the areas they planned specifically against, and they would bring heavy artillery against the fort, alongside some ten thousand men at arms and two thousand knights would be sent under the command of Deiter Stroh of whom was a seasoned commander of whom was well aware of the skill of Liam and wasn't going to walk into a defeat as many previously had. Liam organized his defenses knowing they had to damage the artillery as best they could in the beginning or else their defenses would be greatly weakened, and for this he would array dozens of skirmishers in the trees before the army of the Empire was marching, and in the gaps large pits were constructed that would collapse when the siege machines passed over them. Deiter Stroh weakened much of this plan when he marched irregular troops first, and was well prepared for ambush from the trees and because of this the Arnorian skirmishers were heavily damaged and did little damage to the Empire army. The pits though were a different matter and they would destory upwards of half the siege machines in the Empire army while heavily delaying them as well as they filled them in so that they could keep moving.

They were just a swarming thing moving against us. Whatever there commander thought he must have known the one strategy they had we had no chance against. There numnbers. They just had too many troops...
Liam Hemsworth
Fall of Fornost

Main Article : Battle of Fornost

The Arnor Invasion was going completely the way of the Austrians. All across the front the border defences that had been formed to defend against small incursions were wiped out without any real casualties to the Austrians. These losses though could not be so easily replaced by the Arnorians of whom were retreating back across the front. Only at the the defense of Talheim, and Kost had the defenders on the side of Arnor been able to resist the Empire in any real form.

Magheim had been sacked. Krost was completed surrounded alongside Talheim. Fornost stood alone, and if it fell this all came crashing down. There was no future for Arnor once Fornost went down.
Natalie Portmane

Marcel Lovie II. would lead the army of the Kingdom of Lucerne into the Second Arnor War as the vangaurd of the larger force that was being gathered by William Lovie III. Travelling through the lands of the Kingdom of Stor they used the tunnels of the Dwarves of Dun Garek in order to reach the besieged land, and they were joined by several hundred Dwarves of whom remained behind in Frostmore instead of heading to Fornost. Marcel Lovie II. would arrive to find the city completely surrounded by the forces of Austria and in this way he moved into the surrounding forest and awaited darkness.

There were so many soldiers surrounding the city, and for a moment I felt like William Lovie II. who had saved the city on the back of a dragon.
Marcel Lovie II.

Using the night as an ally he was able to get very close to the Empire army before they knew what was happening, and ambushing them while most of the army was either asleep or facing the wrong direction a brutal melee ensued. Marcel and Fredrick Clegane would cut their way through the army of the Empire with their personal elite gaurd and find the command structure of the army and Marcel defeated Driam taking him prisoner. With the defeat of Driam Troy the rest of the forces begin surrending, and Marcel would quickly send the prisoners southward towards Frostmore while he took Driam Troy into Fornost where his additional forces allowed Fornost to hold against the siegers all around them. 

Natalie Portmane Action1.jpg
I had hoped that Driam Troy's capture would bring them to the table, but despite him being a hostage they refused to even respond to diplmocay. It became clear easily enough that the Empire was not interested in Arnor surviving in any form.
Marcel Lovie II.

With the capture of Driam Troy Marcel and the other commanders attempted to use diplomacy to push The Empire back, but discovered none of their attempts were met by even communication. Realizing there would be no end to this fight and it would be fought to the last drop of blood Sif Hemsworth, and Marcel would come to the conclusion that they needed to hold at Frostmore where the defences were greater. Due to this plan Marcel would be influencial in keeping the royal family of House Hemsworth alive after he made them aware of the fact that the Empire forces had made threats of what would happen if they captured the members of House Hemsworth. The siege of Fornost would become even more dire and potentially disasterous when the illusive Priam Troy would arrive with a larger army and a clear thought of defeating Fornost through whatever means neccessary. With the knowldge that the city was going to fall he would lead his forces and some of the defending Arnor forces out of the doomed city and prepare to move to Frostmore where they would make their last stand. Marcel would do his best to console his cousin Natalie but was unable to convinse her to hide, and because of this he was forced to sadly say goodbye to his cousin who was so brave, and took Britney, and Lucie Lovie with him out of the city and southward towards Frostmore. Inside Fornost the defenders led by Sif Hemsworth remained resolute in dying in defence of the city, and they held the walls to the last man as the siegers led by Priam Troy broke through the walls in several areas. Charging through the gaps in the walls the defenders would initially attempt to hold the gaps, but overwhelming numbers forced them to retreat back to the keeps that lay within the city, and defend themselves from there. Falling one by one the keeps and strongpoints were no match for the unending armies of Austria, and thus the final stand was made at the Royal Fornost Palace.

She was ready to die. Her life was a hollow shell now she told me, and I never knew what had saddened her to the point that she was ready to die. I took her son with me because she was a brave soul, and that kind of spirit needs to be protected as best you can.
Marcel Lovie II.

Priam Troy stood with the army for the first time demanding for Driam Troy's return but Sif Hemsworth laughed at him from the walls lying that Driam was dead, and that only his body would be discovered by the Teutons. Priam instead of ordering the storming of the keep would bring forth catapults and ordered dead cows fired into the palace grounds and did this the entire day causing disease to spread amongs the Atlantians. As the Palace grounds were bombarded with disease the rest of the city was pacified and the many nobles unable to retreat southward were taken into their control, including several members of House Hemsworth. As the defenders of the palace died in their dozens Priam begin firing burning oil into the palace and so few were the gaurds that they were unable to combat the fire and it spread horribly throughout killing the remainder of the defenders. Sif Hemsworth and a handful of defenders opened the Palace gates and attempted to meet their end in honorable combat, but Priam Troy would fire on them with archers, and crossbowmen killing them before this could happen.

Britney Turns Away
Britney Hemsworth Hot3.jpg
I saw who my mother really was in that moment. She spent her entire life telling me how dearly she loved my father, and yet here was her chance to save my father's cousin and she wouldn't even raise a finger. It would have taken nothing to help him, and yet she did nothing.
Lucie Lovie

As the army of Marcel Lovie retreated southward it was still filled with several thousand troops of the Order of the Black Numenorians led by Britney Hemsworth, and it would be this force that would dramatically change the outcome of the Battle of Frostmore. As they approached Frostmore she would be alerted by one her agents using one of the Magi Stones of Lucerne that the region of Lorderon had gone up in flame after discovering that Arthas Menathil was a chaos servent and was heading north with an army now no longer aligned with Lucerne. Realizing that no reinforcements were incoming she knew the fate of Arnor was sealed, but she also knew she needed time to get away, and thus she ordered her forces to sneak eastward during the night as they camped. Not alerting Marcel to the betrayal of Arthas Marcel was shocked in the morning when a quarter of his army was gone, but had no choice but to continue on to Frostmore. Britney took the entirety of her force as well as draining some of the defenses of Frostmore and traveled eastward before traveling southward into Dun Garek where she and Lucie bid goodbye to Arnor and made their way southward to new horizons.

Arthas Moves North

Lucie Lovie
Last Stand of Marcel Lovie
Marcel Lovie1.jpg
word from Dun Garek told me that noone was coming, and in that moment I knew what William would have wanted. He would have wanted me to retreat the army and save as many lives as possible. But as I looked around at the honorable people of Arnor I couldn't abandon them. So we fought, and so we died.
Marcel Lovie II.

As Marcel planned the defences of Frostmore alongside others he was horrified when the banners of the Empire of Valeria begin appearing on the western front, while The Empire's banners also begin appearing on the northern side of the fortress. Marcel upon all of these changes would make top priorty be the surival of as many of the Arnorian people as he could and they flooded southward into Dun Garek in increasing numbers as Frostmore turned into the last bastion of Arnor outside of Talheim. As the southern exit from Frostmore begin to be shut by the Valerians the remaining people inside Frostmore were forced to accept that they may be doomed, and Marcel did his best to quell the fear in the city, but it was as fear hit them that the Valerians struck against the western walls. The Valerians struck with hundreds of cultists, and more terrifying a few thousand demons struck the western walls and broke the moral of the defenders until Fredrick Clegane rallied them when he killed a larger demon. As the defenders rallied Fredick was struck by a black arrow killing him just as Marcel Lovie arrived to congratulate him on his turning of the tide. The defenders wanted to break and pull back but Marcel fought side by side on the western wall and held it for a time. During this desperate last defence while defending against cultists climbing up ladders it was Reingard Highdor that would be stabbed and slashed leaving his one arm gone and bleeding terribly from a wound to his stomach. Realizing that he needed help quickly or he would die it was Marcel that took him inside the tower they were defending and after telling Reingard that he would go and get a healer for him they both heard the fighting outside intensifying and opening the door saw the wall was falling. Realizing the situation Reingard would demand that Marcel leave and save the city over just him, and both crying they said goodbye as Marcel locked the tower door behind him leaving Reingard to bleed out in the tower.

It shocked me to learn that so many troops had already gotten through the Dun Garek passe, and I was elated by the news of Arthas's arrival.
Marcel Lovie II.

Marcel would arrange his forces into Frostmore following this because he was sent ravens by Arthas Menathil that his forces were incoming, and that he should remain there as the entire Lucernian army was only days away. As Frostmore was surrounded Marcel was confused as to where the relief was, but remained rresolute in following what he had been told, and for this reason he didn't retreat from Frostmore. The Valerians finally broke inside the walls, and he was told that The Empire forces had disaspeared from the north heading northward, and thus renewed that perhaps they were retreating in fear of the coming Lucerne army he fought with new passion in the defence of the city. As the city fell he defended the keep to the last, and was defeated in single combat by a Valerian man who had wings sprouting from his body and was just barely alive as he watched the forces of Valeria pull back. Marcel would wake up and find Arthas standing over him, but Arthas had completely given in to Chaos and would kill Marcel before desecrating his body and leaving the city.

Dead Invasion of Germania

Main Article : Dead Invasion of Germania

Arthas Invades Germania
This monster has crushed all resistance before him. He defeated the Austrians at Nuln. Crushed the wolves of Middenland at their own capital. Broke our army at Castle Nunenstein. Tell me my Emperor. How can we stop him? What do we do?

Following the Battle of Fornost the army of Arthas Menathil would move northward gathering significant reinforcements from the casualties of the Fornost region and then increasingly more as they moved through the war torn regions of Arnor. The rapidly expanding army of Arthas Menathil carves its way through Arnor, and Priam secretly commands the forces of Austria to do there best to avoid conflict with his army and instead begs for assistance from Karl Franz of whom begins rallying forces with the nearby forces of Slovakia, and Ostmark of whom were already rallying troops.

Galindus Vapnisson would despite his own strong desire to not remain be left behind as the regent of Kosice when his father Edgin Vapnisson and elder brother Volham Vapnisson rallied much of there forces to join the army of Slovakia in resisting the invasion of Arthas, and thus would be within the walls of Kosice when a small splinter force of Arthas Menathil put Kosice under siege.

Battle of Nuln

Pushed back at great cost from the inner gatehouse leading to the main city, the forces of Arthas would retreat out of Nuln but he left a splinter force behind with commands to kill and burn as much of the taken portion of the city as possible while the majority of the army retreated northward.

Massacre at Fratenjortz

Main Article : Siege of Fratenjortz

It was Janus Frandsen who was still living at his estate when the forces of Arthas Menathil came to Austria and while the main forces marched towards the major cities small splinter forces moved against some of the smaller villages including the villages looked over by Janus Frandsen, and it was here where he would make his power known. While his families home of Fratenjortz was under siege nearby it was Janus that was attacked at his estate by Magnus Fargriever a Liche in the Scourge army, and Magnus attacked directly towards the estate seeing it as the only defensible position in the area and arriving at the walls it was Janus who came to meet him with his guard. At first attempting to force a surrender out of Janus it was Magnus who became overcome with pain and begin to lose control of his skeletal forces as Janus came near him and realizing it was his powers doing this Janus entered his dream world and was able to pull Magnus from the Fade obliterating his soul and leaving him a soulless husk back in reality. With the death of Magnus the force with Magnus collapsed around him and with victory at hand he traveled to the local villages and had them retreat into the forests while he gathered what men he could and traveled towards Fratenjortz. After defeating the Scourge force attacking his land he would travel with his personal forces to Fratenjortz where he would attack the Scourge siege forces while they were attacking the walls and with an attack so unexpected he was able to get into the command structure of the sieging Scourge army and using his pariah gene he would obliterate the entire command structure of the attacking army leaving the skeletons and the entire army to collapse around him and breaking the siege.

Relief of Nuln

Following his breaking of the siege of Fratenjortz it was Janus that was taken by his sister Aristea Frandsen of whom was now all but ruler of House Frandsen with their father Conrad a sickly old man and she took him alongside much of the army of Fratenjortz towards Nuln where she planned to break the siege there. Arriving at Nuln the main force of Arthas had already left for the north but the remaining Nuln forces were struggling to break the remaining attackers and the forces of Fratenjortz would smash into them and using Janus they targeted the Liches all across the field of battle and were able to shatter the remaining Scourge forces who begin surrendering as they realized the weapon that Janus was.

Invasion of Slovakia

Main Article : Arthas Invasion of Slovakia

It was Wolfram Hertwig III., and his son Wolfram Hertwig IV. that would lead the forces of Slovakia into the defense of the border of Slovakia when it was assailed by a dead army of Arthas moving into their province and the Slovakian forces would split their forces into two with one force led by Wolfram defending Castle Orava while a force led by Edgin Vapnisson would defend Orava Bridge. While these preperations were being made it was Galindus Vapnisson that would despite his own strong desire to not remain be left behind as the regent of Kosice when his father and elder brother rallied much of there forces to join the army of Slovakia in resisting the invasion of Arthas, and thus would be within the walls of Kosice when a small splinter force of Arthas Menathil put Kosice under siege. Gaining victory at the Battle of Castle Orava it was Wolfram who rallied his forces and moved towards Talabheim where the dead army fresh from victory at the Battle of Orava Bridge had put the city under siege, and joined by the forces of Galindus Vapnisson they prepared the army for the Battle of Talabheim. Following the defeat of the force besieging Talabheim it would be Galindus that rallied the broken forces of House Vapnisson following the defeat of his father and brother and led them north where they would fight at the Battle of Middenheim where he would be horrified to discover his brother and father had been reanimated and now fought for Arthas and although he was able to end his brother his father would escape the battle with Arthas.

Invading the Lands of Ulric

Following the Battle of Nuln and with the city nearly defenseless the movement of Arthas north would finally cause the forces of Middenland and the Ulric worshipers to make a move to truly enter the conflict. The army of Arthas would move directly through the center of Wissenland forcing the Elector Count there in the form of Alberich Anderssen to raise his armies, but not having enough forces ready that quickly he could not engage the skeletal army of Arthas and instead followed it as it moved through central Wissenland and north into Middenland.

Chaos Allies

You should have died with your brothers and sisters back during the fall of your pantheon. To see you like this now is a travesty to their memory.
Helgi
As Arthas and the Scourge made there way into central Middenland it was the fallen titan Elric that met with the scourge leadership and attempted to make an arrangement with them which he hoped would lead to them helping him in releasing Daena from imprisonment. Helgi would travel into Germania at the command of her father following the movement of Arthas into the lands and having with her a group of Valkyrie and several dozen she would arrive in Middenland as Arthas entered the land, and once she had she sensed the summoning of a spell in the area and brought her forces to the location. Coming out of hiding in order to summon demons to the side of Arthas he would be set upon by several Titans who were in the area trying to work against Arthas and fighting a battle against them he realized they were going to beat him and thus he turned on his scourge allies using them as a shield and then escaped back into Drakwald Forest.
Battle of Middenheim

Main Article : Battle of Middenheim

The combined forces of Middenland, Wissenland, and a small force from the Kingdom of Galia would mass outside of the city of Middenheim for the defence of the Ulric capital of which the Arthas army finally seemed intent on a fight as it moved towards the army. Following the defeat of the force besieging Kosice it would be Galindus that rallied the broken forces of House Vapnisson following the defeat of his father and brother and led them north where they would fight at the Battle of Middenheim where he would be horrified to discover his brother and father had been reanimated and now fought for Arthas and although he was able to end his brother his father would escape the battle with Arthas.

Battle of Nunenstein Castle

Main Article : Battle of Nunenstein Castle

Battle of Aldorf

Main Article : Battle of Aldorf

Following the forces of Arthas breaking through the fortress of Nunenstein Castle the army of Bavaria would be marshaled in its entirety and moved itself to Aldorf. While the Bavarians were mobilizing the long awaited reinforcements of Hannover moved into the province arriving west of Aldorf bolstering the defenders, but still paling in comparison to the forces they knew would be arrayed by Arthas Menathil.

The Aftermath

Volham Vapnisson having been found dying on the field by his brother he would die in his brothers arms and then taken back to Kosice where unlike their father he was put to rest in the ground and not raised in undeath like their father Edgin had been by Arthas.

Breaking out of Denmark

Defeated for the first time at the Battle of Aldorf the dead army of Arthas would make a move northward towards Denmark with their diminished forces, with this movement unable to be chased by the Hannover, and Bavarian Army due to the casualties they had suffered themselves. Isabella Rasmussen would during the movement of Arthas through Denmark become responsible for his escape when she met with Arthas in the Fade and mistakenly came to believe that his intentions were honorable, but after telling her father this and having him listen to her it was Arthas who came to her once again in the Fade and revealed that he would return in time and kill everyone in Denmark.

You ruined our lives. Did you not think we would come for our vengeance?
Tyr - Human.jpg
I sent my children to find you. Then I used your gifts to bring you here.
Tyr

Tyr would discover that Arthas Menathil was coming for the sword Frostmourne and realizing that if he got the sword he could become too powerful to stop he traveled to the Dutchy of Narke where he met with Ostgar Atlisdottir of whom he attempted to convinse to resist Arthas menathil when he did arrive but found to his horror that Ostgar was both extremely intelligent and also a sexual monster who held a harram of women as basically sexual slaves. With the change of resisting Arthas at Narke gone he traveled to the Dutchy of Messlingen where he met with Duke Beiner Hrutsson and was able to convinse the Duke to resist Arthas Menathil and thus protect the Vault that was within the Dutchy of Messlingen. Tyr would finally travel to the Dutchy of Daggson where he met with Duke Arnfinn Dagsson who he was also able to convince to resist Arthas menathil when he eventually made it into the area and following this he returned to Archervon Hold where he met with his sons in order to try and put together a plan to get into the Vault of Medizin. After long discussion they decided on putting into action a plot bringing a group of Magi Blanks from across Germania to Swedan where he planned to use the blanks to get inside the Vault of Medizin before Arthas could. The Vault of Medizin had been co created by Tyr generations previous and thus he knew it was defended by a clan of Dwarves who assisted by Magi resistance Stone Giants was meant to be unable to be defeated by Titans, or Demons and thus begin his plan to bring in the one thing the vault could not defend against in the form of Blanks.

Tyr would send several of his children to the lands of Germania where they were able to find many blanks using Pendants of Pariah, and using the criteria of working against Arthas they narrowed this down to eight blanks who were effected very negatively by the actions of Arthas Menathil's invasion of Germania.

Journey of Visimar

Main Article : Killing of Cenuz Clawkeeper

Mathilde Sperbe Medium.jpg
There is a monster in that cave Visimar. It prays on the weak, and we can stop it here and now. Will you help us?
Mathilde Sperber

It was Visimar Boggison that would in his vengeance towards Arthas and with nothing left at home following the Hannover Civil War travel northward in his own quest to destroy Arthas for destroying everything he had ever known and loved. Visimar travels down the road resisting the pull to reenter the fade and instead stops at a small village where he wants to pray at a Sigmar Temple and arriving at the village he is noticed immediately as he is heavily armed and before he is even able to get off his horse he is approached by several villagers who ask him whether he was sent by Lord Liebhard Kruspe who is the Magnate of the area, but Visimar tells that he is not. Speaking with the villagers stops when the priest of the temple comes outside and sends the villagers away, and then quickly takes Visimar inside the temple where he finds a group of warrior priests inside and also several female warriors he recognizes as priestess of Shallya. Trying to find out what is happening he is told by Priest Sieger Keilberth, Witch Hunter Dietger Bodeker, and Priestess of Shallya Mathilde Sperber that they are here to battle a monster that has made its home within the forests surrounding the village and killed several villagers. He learns that previous to their arrival they have learned that Lord Liebhard had entered the cave and against the advise of his men took them inside and tried to kill the creature but was killed and his men abandoned him returning to Castle Kruspe to alert Liebhard's son of his fathers death. Seeing his armor and the priestess senses a strange power from him they ask him to help them and he agrees believing this a deed he cannot ignore, and with the plan to attack the monster during the night before it can attack the village again he takes up their offer of sleep and goes to sleep resting before the fight to come.

What is real? What is a dream?
Visimar Boggison
Woken hours later when darkness has come he follows with the group as they make their way to the cave, and reaching the entrance they enter the cave system where they find it is far more expansive then they had been told by the villagers. Hearing noises coming from different areas in the cave the group spreads out with Visimar going with Mathilde, and Dietger alongside the one of the sigmarite warrior priests and as they travel down the cave they come to a large opening where they find the remnants of a ritual spot, which is littered with dead animals. As they search the ritual site they discover the body of Liebhard Kruspe and he has horrible claw marks all over his body and his legs apear to have been eaten, but before they can do anything they hear screaming and going towards the screaming they find one of the warrior priests dead with his head having been ripped from his body. More screaming brings them to another tunnel in the cave where they find the remaining two sigmarite warrior priests dead but find a badly wounded Sieger Keilberth who tells them that the creature was a wolf who walked on two feet but ran away when Sieger begin preaching of Sigmar. Following the trail of blood they reach a large cavern where they see the creature up on a ledge, and the group is almost killed by the entrance collapsing due to the creature destroying a pillar, but Visimar pushes Mathilde out of the cavern leaving him alone in the cavern.
Dishlaash.jpg
Confronting the creature as it gets close he feels himself enter the dreamworld and the creature begins screaming and his wolf form disapears leaving him just a naked man, but despite attempting to communicate with the man he just continues screaming and eventually cuts begin forming all over his body and he bleeds out. Looking around him Visimar sees Mathilde, Dietger and the two Shallya Priests enter the cavern from a different entrance but they walk right past him and check the broken form of the creature on the ground. Realizing they cannot see him he watches as a second version of the man who had just died appears above the dead body, and realizes he is in some sort of heaven and wonders whether he is dead, but then he feels himself pulled back into the non-dream world which scares the group as he appears to them from seemingly no where. Before the group can discuss anything about what happened its the benefactor of Cenuz who arrives in the form of Dishlaash and enraged at the death of his agent it is Dishlaash who kills one of the Shallya Priests and then attempts to kill Mathilde but is resisted by the rest of the group including Visimar who engages the arrogant Dishlaash and with the entire group channeling worship in Sigmar Dishlaash becomes unhinged and is struck down by Mathilde. As the man dies it is Visimar that hears whispers in his mind telling him to dream, and without truly understanding what he is doing he enters the dream world where he finds the ghost of the wolf creature and the second man standing there talking. The two realize he is there but Otwin begins screaming in horror at him describing Visimar as a hole in the world, while the other man appears unafraid. Visimar once again hears whispers and the whispers tell him how to use his powers which he does and to the shock of Dishlaash he erases the two using his pariah powers, but as Dishlaash dies he lets out a scream for his father to help him thus summoning Ragoth.

Your dreams were never dreams Visimar.
Archavon

Since remembering the death of Liam Odrell in his dream world it was Visimar who was consistently no longer able to control his dreaming and he found himself entering the fade and dreaming in the fade even while awake and it was while riding northward that Visimar was startled from his daydreaming by the sight of several armed horsemen in front of him. Visimar who has been startled from his daydreaming by the armed horsemen in front of him, and after brief conversation the men force him to pay them money to pass, and not wanting violence he pays them but unfortunately they see his purse of gold and try to get more money from him. After telling them what he is doing they laugh at his stupidity in trying to to kill Arthas and enraged by this he kills the leader instigating a fight from them and while he kills all the bandits during the fighting he takes a bad sword wound and falls unconscious in the middle of the road. Visimar would wake to find himself in a bed and hears a women singing quietly while she cradles a baby. Attempting to rise he finds himself tied to the bed, and grunting the women notices him, and quietly puts the baby in a bed before grabbing something from a table and coming over to him and whispering sleep before covering his mouth and nose causing him to sleep from the substance. Visimar once again waking and this time he does not hear the singing of the women instead is met by the stare of a heavily armored man of whom he engages in conversation discover the man is a hedge knight for a Bavarian lord and that he and his wife had found him on the road dying and had saved him but were unwilling to release him from his bonds due to the violence in the area as of late.

After several days Visimar is able to get himself loose during the night but continues to rest in the bed and does not say anything as he rests for the entire next day. During Visimar's time at the Enemsson Estate it was Archavon that was still watching over Visimar but his proximity brought in Chaos influence who watched Archavon watching the family and the demon titan Ragoth would corrupt a local bandit and had the bandit gather a group to attack the estate. Waking up in the morning he is woken to the sounds of yelling as he finds the women on the ground with a man attacking her while the husband is wrestling with another man, and a third man enters the room making his way towards the children room. Having nearly fully recovered from his wounds he gets up and using the knife he had hidden in his bed he stabs the man attacking the wife through the neck before stabbing the man wrestling the husband, and then getting him to his feet before the two together kill the third man who attempted to get into the children's room. As the sounds of screaming from within alert the final man of the bandit group the final bandit launches a torch at the house igniting it in flames, but together Visimar, the husband and wife are able to get the children out of the house, and leaving the burning home Visimar engages the final man in a duel killing him as well. Visimar after this rushes to try and put out the fire, but is confused when the family does nothing to help, and after realizing he cannot stop the fire he turns back and sees the family laughing at him.

You were like a hole in the world. No matter what I tried to do I could not escape the pull of walking into that hole.
Adelheid Onemsson

Getting mad that they are laughing at him he understands when the women whistles and bird flies to her shoulder and after its arrival she begins chanting but at her chanting she begins crying out in pain. As she chants Visimar feels himself become something different and it becomes just himself and Adelheld in the clearing, and trying to understand what is happening they are joined in the clearing by another in the form of a man who calls himself Archavon and the man explains what Visimar is. After recovering she looks to Visimar and tells him that when she begin trying to use her Magi Visimar became like a dark hole that tried to suck her in and then she was sucked into that that dark version of reality where Archavon was waiting for them. Having discovered the location of her brother Adelheld plans to travel south and find her brother and Visimar is torn between going with them and getting his vengeance but the anger is too strong and he tearfully says goodbye to the family who has saved his life, but agrees that when he gets his vengeance he will find them again.
