With Asa Odinnson
Tyr is the founder and progenitor of the "Fire Giants" of which are a sub-sect of the overall Storm Giants within the Children of Odin.
Tyr during the years preceding the Great Migration was sent far to the north on the orders of his father and founded the Archervon Hold in Norway alongside the earliest of his children which would grow to become the Fire Giants. His arrival in Norway would become a beacon for the forces of Chaos who saw him and knew that he would be their greatest threat as they slowly moved their Andals into position to sack northern Europe. Tyr was not aware that this massive of an assault was incoming and thus he simply went about following the path that his father had sent him to Norway with. It would be here that he would remain for centuries as he fortified the location just like his father had commanded him to do. During the Great Migration he would be responsible for much of the defense of the Germans after his father was forced to return to Valhalla, and during these fights he lost his son Torovon and became bitterly hateful of the Andals and Chaos.Tyr would be forced to defend Archervon Hold against an onslaught of demons attacking it from the Warp Portal during an event known as the First Archervon Warp Invasion and during this conflict he was forced to deactivate one of the portals after it became clear that they could not hold out against the endless armies of demons flowing through. Tyr would be betrayed from within by his grandson Gyrd of whom became corupted by Chaos while fighting in Norway and returned to Archervon and reactivated the Warp Portal to the fade initiating the Second Archervon Warp Invasion, and during the fighting they were able to once again close the warp portal but Gyrd escaped through it before it closed. 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 put 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 Messlingen before Arthas could.
| The Fade and the Titans|
We were supposed to protect this world. Not leave it in darkness.
Creation of the Fade
In order to construct most of the world the Old Ones had turned from science, and their own massive technology and had instead allowed their Slann to control the process by which the planet took its changing form. The Slann used untold Magi to shift continents, changing environments and many other things all with the use of their primitive Magi over the vast technology of the Old Ones. Because the Old ones had used so much Magi on the world the traces of it were sucked into a realm called the Fade, and left to fester under the protection of the Old Ones. With the Old Ones leaving they needed one of their Titans to protect and control the Fade.
|There are just no words to describe how beautiful things were before they left.|
The Old Ones Leave
With the safeguards believed to be in place the Old Ones, begin disassembling many of their cities on the Earth. This process was obviously to make sure the advanced nature of the Old Ones wasn't allowed to seep into the growth of the races of Earth, and the Titans were allowed to control this growth as per their creation. The process of taking apart their cities was one that they had done on an innumerable amount of occasions and because of this they were able to deconstruct their cities in a very short amount of time. With their cities gone, the Old Ones packed into their ships and set out into space to their next destination with little understanding of the emotional catastrophe they left behind due to their importance among the Lizardmen. With the Old Ones gone their favored race in the Lizardmen was initially shocked and in disarray as to what to do with themselves, but as the Old Ones knew they would the Slann took control of the situation and led the Lizardmen towards the path of enlightenment where they would act as the stewards of the planet. Other then the Lizardmen the only real effect that their departure had was that with them gone, their was no one truly watching the Titans and their successes and failures and because of this lack of attention the true fate of the Old One Tek would come into play.
As with all the other worlds the Old Ones had left behind without the Old Ones interference though the Titans should have simply been able to deflect any internal corruption through their internal device that made sure they never deviated from their assigned tasks but with the manipulation of Tek in place the entire scenario was made dramatically different. When the Old Ones had taken their leave they took Tek's clone with them, and Tek was left in his facility which was extremely deep inside an Old One facility on Iceland and had complete control over the entire facility. In the facility he watched as the world became the beautiful place that the Old Ones had wanted and he thus became extremely bitter that their plan was working. He went about finding a way to destabilize the situation in his off minutes and it was in this time that he formulated the devise which would manipulate Tzeneech into corruption.
| Corruption of the Titans|
All it took was one of them turning his back on his creator for me to truly see the depths of their depravity. My brethren had created them and things like them a million times and each time they had smiled with an arrogance built on the foundation that these Titans were perfect creations. I would show them how much their foundation was built on nothing. I would let them see the truth of this perfection.
Corruption of Tzeneech
As with most stories the time of the Titans being fully unified would end when a single member of their number in the form of Tzeneech the God of Magic, and sorcery managed to destroy his protective shield. This meant that he existed without any shield against greed, corruption, or hate. These feelings did not come all at once but it was a slow corruption as the protection left him until eventually he became the First of the Chaos Gods. It was purely the work of Tek that the ability to destroy his protective shield was created when the fallen Old One Tek begin his experimentation on the Titans. Tek believed that the Titans created an imbalance in the world and the only way to make the world into its natural state was to make the Titans act naturally. In order to do this he used his unimaginable technology to enter the Fade which was the domain of Tzeneech and while in the Fade he spread a kind of virus into the Fade which seeped into Tzeneech and placed questions into the Titan's mind. The virus allowed Tzeneech to understand the emotions that were supposed to be inhibited by his shield, and with these emotions he was able to destroy the shield completely which then led to these emotions spreading. This would begin to take its affect on him in the form of his corruption unknowingly of his child of sorts in Sethe of whom was the closest to him and thus the one that begin to feel the most of his increasingly wild emotions. Due to the increasing corruption of Sethe Tzeneech would begin to feel a sort of nationalistic mindset towards his Arakhora but when this was resisted by the returning Anzu, and Terokk of whom had been away on the Earth expanding the homelands of the burgeoning Arakhora population on the Earth. Tzeneech would turn his back on the two resisting members of his children in the form of Anzu, and Terokk and openly question their love of him, and this caused Sethe to turn against them beginning the Arakhora Civil War.
Corruption of the Five
After Tek corupted Tzeenech he had fed into the mind of Tzeenech that there were several other Titans that it was very important for him to concentrate on removing the shields of and it was in this way that Tzeenech begin to target five Titans in the form of Malekor, Zeus, Hades, Khorne, and Eywa. At first targeting Malekor as this was the Titan that he was closest too he would travel to Luna where he met with Malekor, and his wife Luna and during this conversation he would be able to convince Malekor to allow him to begin the spell to remove the shield around him, but Luna was unwilling and stormed from the room unwilling to accept any deviation from the plans of the Old Ones. Following his corruption of Malekor he would Luna leaving behind the disaster that was a now corrupted Malekor of whom he taught how to remove the shields of Titans and despite Malekor's one time honorable way of life he was corrupted with a feeling of paranoia which would be the main cause for his eventual betrayal of the Luna Pantheon in the event known as the Luna War of Conquest. Leaving Luna Tzeenech would travel to Charon where he would come to the World Tree the home of Eywa and finding her happy to him he was momentarily reluctent to betray her but the anger and resentment he felt towards the Old Ones pushed him to attempt to tell Eywa the story. As he begin to tell Eywa the story that was secretly a spell crafted by Tek which had already successfully turned Malekor and Tzeenech to Chaos but this time the story was interuped by the arrival of Luna of whom explained to Eywa what had happened to Malekor and at this Tzeenech would escape Charon but before he did he would use his complete control of The Fade to block the Warp Gate which allowed exit from Charon to the Fade. Worried that his attempt to corupt Eywa had exposed him it was Tzeenech that would immediately following this event leave for Olympus where arriving there he was able to meet with Zeus and convinsed Zeus of whom had no reason to believe anything was amiss to listen to the story. Zeus would listen to the story but as the spell worked its way and destroyed his shielding it was Tzeneech that was shocked when nothing happened and Zeus just insulted the story and then asked Tzeenech to leave and despite Tzeneech attempting to explain what had happened he was refused and thus silently Zeus was corrupted but his corruption would be different. Zeus had been hand crafted by the Old One Sek of whom had created with a single overriding drive and this drive led to his corruption creating a flawed personality trait where in he became increasingly ridig in his view of what the Titans purpose was.
Fall of Nurgle
Spread of the Corruption
With the corruption spreading and an increasing amount of Titans becoming corrupted there would be the first casualty of the conflict when the First Generation Titan Jupiter was approached by Malekor, Khorne, and Tzeneech. Attempting to have Jupiter remove her shield would backfire dramatically when Jupiter resisted the three Chaos Titans and a fight broke out between the four of them. The group attempted to manipulate Jupiter who they knew to be a very noble and just and thus they attempted to have her join them through arguing that they would assist the world through their work and that it was Zeus that was the problem. The group of corrupted Chaos Titans had been unaware that Jupiter had lost her shield through her proximity to the Woses but her corruption was to become increasingly noble, and seeking justice which would lead to her inability to negotiate with the three more powerful Titans instead simply attacking them and nearly killing Tzeneech but eventually she was unable to fight the three of them and thus the fight led to the death of Jupiter of whom was over matched by the three more violent Titans. Following her death Khorne would become quite boisterous in his discussion of murdering Jupiter, and while this was something that angered many of the Titans it would be her two sons Ulric, and Taal that would become enraged by the death of Jupiter and under the leadership of Ulric they would begin a plan to target Khairne for revenge against Khorne.
Fall of Slanaash
Slanaash would protected from corruption by two things with the first being his devout love for his elven creation leaving him never entering the fade, and the second being constantly guarded by his sister Elune who believed that there was a dangerous element growing in the Titans and knew she needed to protect her brother. Ragoth would become so isolated from his elven family that he drifted into the sphere of influence of a titan who would eventually ruin him in the form of Malekor and through Malekor he became a different person then the one he once was. When Malekor fell to corruption it was Ragoth who was one of the titans that fell into the words of Malekor becoming just like his mentor an agent of chaos, and through this he was tasked with corrupting his father in order to truly prove how loyal he was to malekor. When Slanaash could not be gotten to due to the interference of Elune it was Zarakynel that was corrupted when she was tricked by her brother Hypnos and when she returned to Ulthuan she realized what had happened to her and left a letter for her daughter Kyriss which detailed what had happened and then unable to live for one minute longer with the corruption afflicting her she would commit suicide inside the fade thus ending her life permanently. The now corupted Ragoth would find the letter before Kyriss could and due to this she was not warned and instead the family was left with little time to grieve as Ragoth made his move against his father. All the things that stood between Slanaash and corruption were broken when his son Ragoth was corrupted and in this corruption used his position as son of Slanaash to enter Slanaash's inner sanctum and tricked Slanaash into entering the fade where once there he was ambushed by Tzeneech, and Malekor who told him the corrupting story and thus broke the shield over Slanaash. So strong was Slanaash's love for the Elves that as he felt the corruption over him spread he would attempt to break himself from the Elves giving over more and more control to the Asurian pantheon as well as Elune, and Cenarius. As time moved forward though despite his attempts at resisting the corruption that he had suffered he was pushed forward by several of his children most notably Morai-Heg, and Ragoth who both had given themselves completely to the corruption and pulled their father down with them. Having given in it was Slanaash that would working alongside his granddaughter Lirith spark the event known as the Dance of Lirith.
Many of the children of Slanaash had seen a change in their father and had gone to the side of Elune, and thus these members of the Asurian Pantheon did not listen to the invitation to the dance of Lirith but many others including the loyal son Khaine traveled to the dance of Lirith where having already corrupted his grand daughter Lirith he would have her do a dance where she told the story that allowed the shield over the titans to be broken and with this event all those who were present were corrupted including half the Asurian pantheon.
The Lodge of the Old Ones
The Lodge of the Old Ones would first be thought of by the first generation titan Godrus who following his corruption by the more powerful Slanaash would be pressured by Slanaash to convert more Titans to the fallen titans. Coming up with idea of mass rituals he would form the Lodge of the Old Ones in order to bring in Titans through the belief that they were going to be learning more about the Old Ones, when in fact there was no information to learn and all they would find was a center of corruption. Nyx would be in the Underworld when the Eternity War was raging and despite the command of her husband Hades that they needed to stay uninvolved with what was happening she was convinced by her husbands friend Hermes to travel with him to the Lodge of the Old Ones and while both remained resolute in not being corrupted it was Hermes who helped Nyx escape which led to him being imprisoned. Having fallen to the corruption of the Lodge it was Wudis who attempted to get his daughters, and mother to join the Lodge but they would be protected by Hermes who despite being imprisoned by the members of the Lodge due to not falling to chaos was able to get a message to Tydana warning her of what the Lodge had done to Wudis and this led to Wudis being barred from entering Olympus.
The Eternity War
Main Article : Eternity War
| The Eternity War|
I'm sure beasts had fought before we sparked the Eternity War, but it wasn't until we got into their heads that the mortals truly understood the level of depravity they were capable of. We caused all of it.
The start of the Eternity War would begin with the corruption of the Trolloc of whom changed from their industrious, and noble ways when they interacted with the now corrupted Chaos God Khorne. At this time in history the Noble Titans were being torn in half but they didn't yet know that this was happening so they watched unknown as the Trolloc were corrupted by the Chaos God Khorne . Khorne offered their leaders great power in return for their loyalty to his beliefs. The Trolloc leaders knew nothing of this kind of evil, so they accepted his offer as genuine, and this would lead to their downfall and the downfall of the peace in Europe. With Khorne now in their midst he changed their peaceful culture into one of utter decadence and violence. The strongest rose to the top, and of all of these the strongest was the legendary Trolloc Mazrak of whom fell from being a priest of Elune before the corruption to becoming a mindless creature of violence. Mazrak would embroil the Trolloc into a massive civil war which would eventually lead to the complete control of the Trolloc Empire into the hands of Mazrak and by extension Chaos.
During the early stages of the Eternity War the forces of Chaos would also target the loyalist Argonian forces of Ind which had spread quite rapidly across Ind and were a real threat to the Chaos forces of the Charr if the fighting got intense in Cathay against the Murloc, and Furbolg. Thus in order to defeat the forces of the Argonians and make sure that the Murlocs of Cathay, and Furbolg would be fighting alone against the Charr it would be Slanaash, and Malekor who would convince Nurgle to destroy the Argonians with his diseases. Crafting the disease he would unleash it into the swamps of Ind and the Argonians would be devastated by the disease throughout the entirety of the Eternity War and during this time despite the best efforts of Hist nothing could be done to stop the ravages of the disease which was being spread by Nurgle. Hist in his desperation to save his people went to Nurgle and found him during his conversations to be completely callous and devoid of the laughter and humor that Nurgle had once been known for, and thus unable to get assistance from Nurgle the once dominant population of Argonians in Ind was completely wiped out leaving them dominant on the islands around Argonia only.
The War Begins
Main Article : The Eternity European War
The Eternity war was the first true conflict of Chaos, and it single highhandedly destroyed the three largest empires in Europe, and left the land ripe for the colonization of the Dwarves, and Elves, and later the Human race. As the Trolloc had become corrupted by the Chaos God Khorne the other Empire's of the world along with the Titans became aware of this change but thought it a different matter then the betrayal of Khorne. The Murloc, and the Woses continued on their peaceful path but unknown to them the Trollocs had been corupted by the God that created them in Khorne. Khorne had turned them to his service and instead of trade the Trollocs begin fashioning massive cities for the construction of huge armies with which to conquer Europe. From these cities they silently built these armies and then prepared to launch a massive suprise invasion of the Woses, and the Murlocs. As the cities of the Trollocs grew to incredible size the Noble Titans became fully aware that something had changed but were duty bound to not interfere, and instead believed that they could assist the nobler races by creating more races into the world. During this time the last of the creations of the Titans would enter the world of which some were the Trolls, and the Draenie. All the Titans did not sit idle during this time as many felt they needed to intervene and several Titans including Aphrodite, and Motrin engaged in an arming of the Woses so that they would survive the Eternity War. Also Neperune of whom created the Murloc was unstoppable as he openly engaged in assistance for his creation. In the years directly preceding the Eternity War the Woses would be dealt a harsh blow when their benefactor in the form of Jupiter would be killed by Khorne, and Tzeenech after she resisted their words of Chaos, and without Jupiter the Woses religion somewhat collapsed for a time leading them astray at exactly the moment they needed faith the most.
The initial invasion was devastating to the Woses, and the Murlocs but the Murlocs were especially damaged by the conflict as they were less prepared then the Woses due to their being the weakest of the three races individually. During this initial onslaught with the corruption of the Titan Nurgle the forces of the Asura would also join the Trolloc and attack the forces of the Woses and Murlocs but were noticeably not putting forth their entire forces. City by city the Chaos honored forces of the Trolloc overran the world and left the Murloc and Woses devastated in their wake. Khaz'Kul would take part in the Massacre of Xaesa where the Trolloc in the guise of negotiations would break this truce and massacred the large city of Xaesa killing several of the leading political leaders of the Woses and shattering much of their war effort. Eventually after centuries of fighting the Woses had lost a significant portion of their empire and began to lose the war, and defeat was only a matter of time. Following this it is said that the Woses made a deal with a Tree Spirit of whom came to their leadership saying that he would help them win the war if they would swear themselves to do a debt for the spirit once the war was done. This Tree Spirit was in fact the spirit of Malekor hidden in plain sight, whom wanted to undermine the efforts of Tzeneech and Khorne and assisted the Woses in defeating the Trolloc. With the assistance of the spirit of Malekor and his forces helping the Woses began to turn the tide back in their favor. With the spirits help they finally managed to take the fight to the Trolloc's part of the forest, and in a titanic battle the Woses destroyed the remaining Trolloc in a massive battle at the edge of the Drueden Forest. During this battle the forces of the Asura would also turn against the Trolloc and their betrayal of the Trolloc would cause the routing of an entire flank of the battle leading to the disastrous defeat and eventually Khorne cursing the Asurans. Following this victory Malekor's forces were unstoppable as he alongside the Woses and remaining Murloc pushed the Trolloc all the way back to their massive cities. It was in the cities that Malekor would create massive spells that literally destroyed the area of the cities and left the Trolloc in a state of destruction. The surviving Trolloc would flee to the forests, where they became nomadic, and their inner soul filled with fear of creating cities by the design of Malekor.
Capture of Khairne
Following Jupiters death Khorne would become quite boisterous in his discussion of murdering Jupiter, and while this was something that angered many of the Titans it would be her two sons Ulric, and Taal that would become enraged by the death of Jupiter and under the leadership of Ulric they would begin a plan to target Khairne for revenge against Khorne. Ulric, and Taal against the wishes of Zeus who forbade any action following the death of Jupiter would enact their plan when they entered the Trolloc Empire in secret and would capture Khairne bringing her back to their holdings in central Germania where they hid there trails to such an extent that no one discovered their involvement and it was in this position that they imprisoned Khairne with Taal becoming her personal jailer.
Invasion of Albion
Main Article : Trolloc Invasion of Albion
During the fighting of the Eternity War it would be Khorne who personally led his Trolloc Empire onto the island of Albion where he targeted the island for destruction due to the relatively large number of Titans on the island and their loyal following there. Following the initial invasion of the Trollocs into Albion it would be Ingri, alongside her Albion Pantheon that would lead the forces of Albion in resisting the invasion but despite stoic defences and several large victories she was pushed back mile by mile northward towards Helms Deep. As Helms Deep came under siege by the forces of Khorne it was Nurgle that intervened in the fighting joining with Khorne to assist in destroying the city, and while Lahmfada held Helms Deep it was Ingri that traveled with Ailpean to Olympus where they traveled to beg Zeus for assistance. Ingri who was close friends with Metis the lover of Zeus believed that this relationship and bringing proof would be more then enough in order to gain the support of Zeus, and thus as she and Ailpean traveled to Olympus the two were filled with hope.
Plea for Help
Despite bringing proof of what was happening Zeus was unwilling to intervene and thus Ingri returned without any real assistance but led the Albion forces in the Battle of Helms Deep (Eternity War). After Zeus was unwilling to assist Ingri it was Zeus's lover Metis that secretly followed Ingri back to Albion and travelling to Helms Deep despite all titans being commanded to not do this she rejected this command and having seen demons and Trollocs fighting there she returned to Olympus with a captured Trolloc of whom she believed would prove to Zeus of the involvement of Khorne. Instead of proving the guilt of Khorne her actions would be seen by Zeus as a betrayal and thus with Poseidan in the room and after a long argument with Metis it was Zeus that would kill her and then lie about her death stating that she had fled Olympus and had no idea where she went and forbade any discussion on her again as she was labeled a traitor. While they had not gained the support of the loyalists of Zeus during their time in Olympus it was Ailpean that was approached by Tzeneech of whom remained in Olympus as no one had discovered him as the ringleader, instead believing that Khorne was the first of these chaos gods. Tzeneech would destroy the shield on Ailpean and corrupted him with fear and anger leading to Ailpean returning to Albion with his grandmother a completely changed man. While at first during the fighting the defenses held and Lahmfada even killed one of the children of Khorne the betrayal of Ailpean who had become disillusioned and easy pickings to Tzeneech led to the near collapse of the defenses of Helms Deep. Ingri would be killed by Khorne but before the final blow could fall on the fortress Khorne and Tzeenech abandoned the attack in order to deal with a massive Asura attack in central Europe leaving the traitors under Ailpean to fight alone at Helms Deep.
Albion Civil War
Following Khorne abandoning the fight it was Ailpean that took control, but the conflicted recently corupted Chaos Titan was unwilling to totally turn against his family in the Albion Pantheon, and his conflicted leadership would come to ahead following the arrival of the Khorne luietenant Khaz'Kul. Khaz'Kul would leave the fighting in the Fade to return to Albion at the behest of Khorne and returning to Helms Deep he joined Ailpean in continuing the assault on the fortress. After Khaz'Kul begin to summon demons to support the war it was Ailpean that had a break from his coruption and would lead his own forces in a massacre of the Trollocs at Helms Deep and during this massacre Khaz'Kul and Ailpean would fight with Ailpean killing Khaz'Kul. Now having turned on Chaos Ailpean would approach the defenders and realizing that his coruption had changed him permently he would convinse his family to kill him which his son Lylr would be the one to mercy kill him.
Asurian Civil War
Main Article : Asurian Civil War
Kyliss would following the Dance of Lirith find herself increasingly overcome by emotions and in this corruption she went to her beloved mathlann in an attempt to save herself, but by the time she got to him she had changed dramatically and Mathlann refused to help her instead banishing her from Ulthuan. Kyriss having been rejected by Mathlann fought during the Asurian Civil War but was extremely reluctant and this reluctance turned to outright resistance when the Chaos aligned forces begin summoning demons to join their side and she was able to use what little strength she had left to secretly betray her forces feeding information to her cousin Isha.
Titan Civil War
Main Article : Titan Civil War
|We were meant to protect this world, not destroy it.|
Following the Luna War of Conquest, and the wider events of the Eternity War the time of hiding the existence of evil within the Titan's ranks was over, and in such a brief time the two sides met in the Fade and the Titans attempted to understand the purpose of this group. The actions of Melekor on Luna and the imprisonment of Vongrith on Luna by Melekor coupled with Khorne's outright violent outbursts during the Eternity War and the moral failings of many other Titans had made this secret known. While imprisoned it was Vongrith that was visited by Tzeneech and was tricked into believing that his siblings had forgotten about him and were not coming and with this belief it was Vongrith that allowed himself to be corrupted by Tzeenech and thus when his siblings did force his release it was Vongrith who had become a secret member of the Chaos forces. The imprisonment of Vongrith would become a major problem as his brother Ursonoc marshaled massive forced and threatened invasion of Luna if Vongrith was not returned to him immediately. Realizing the danger of the situation it was Tzeneech who forced the Chaos Titans in his ranks to agree to a meeting at the fortress of Olympus where he would speak with Zeus and outwardly attempt to find a peace between the two sides. The meeting took place between Zeus, Ursonoc, Ares, and Neperune on the noble side of things while Malekor, Slanaash, and Tzeenech arrived for Chaos and this meeting was going to be judged by Nike of whom as the goddess of victory would decide the winning case of the two parties. As they arrived it was almost clear from the beginning that things had changed as the once High Elven form of Slanaash had changed dramatically, while Tzeenech as well barely resembled his host race in the Arakhora. Despite these obvious physical changes Zeus would attempt to discuss the matters but they came to quickly understand due to Slanaash revealing it to them that Khorne, Nurgle and many others were now barely capable of containing their personal rage, and when Slanaash openly threatened the life of Neperune it was Zues that would send Malekor, Slanaash, and Tzeenech away in horror at what they had become. Sending them away it was Vongrith who remained behind and was escorted back to his Charr on Earth by his brother Ursonoc and sister Ophiel of whom in their joy to see their brother did not recognize that he was utterly changed.
The first blow came when the violent Trolloc of Khorne attacked the Titan homeland of Olympas in a massive battle that caused the deaths of many Titans and several of the more bloodthirsty of the Chaos Gods. Khorne would amass to himself a massive force of Trolloc and without the consideration of overall goals he would recruit several other Chaos Titans including Laran, and two of Khornes sons and together they smashed through the lightly defended Emerald Gate massacring the unprepared Titans within, and nearly reaching the Palace of Olympus but they were halted by a stiff resistance put up by Neperune, and Yor. Following this resistance Khorne would be pushed out of the city by the arrival of Ares who was able to battle him to beyond the Emerald Gate but Laran and the two sons of Khorne were not as lucky both being killed alongside nearly the entire Trolloc army. Alongside this massacre was the capture of the daughter of Tzeneech in the form of Aviana of whom was captured by the arrival of Hermes and taken within the prison of Olympas where she was watched over by Hermes for much of this time. Following this initial assault by Khorne it was Zeus in the Palace that would order the closing of all portals into Olympus and while this broke off contact with all Titans outside of Olympus it also put an end any attempts to get into Olympus by bypassing the main defences. As the siege of Olympas went on the forces of the other main Chaos Gods found themselves free to do what they wanted as Khorne was basically on his own holding the Titans in place. Nurlge joined the siege and brought his large forces to bear against the fortress of Tarterus where he besieged the massive fortress and put a large amount of fear in the Titans that their rear would be vulerable due to the fall of Tarterus. Despite these short term successes the overall first assault of Khorne was a strategic failure as he had revealed the goals of the Chaos Titans before they were ready and also ended several plots the Chaos leadership had to take over Warp Portals to get inside Olympus.
Thunderlands Civil War
Main Article : First Thunderlands Civil War
As the forces of Chaos had failed in their initial attempt to get inside Olympus due to the failures of Khorne it was Slanaash that would move against the so called Mountain Kings when he targeted Odin, and Vendriel for corruption as they both had portals within their cities which allowed for the movement into Olympas from the undefended center of the city. In Odin they saw little hope of corruption so they moved onto Vendriel who was ripe for corruption as he was in a secondary role to his brother and also silently loved his brothers wife Freyja giving Slanaash ample room to work his way into the soul of Vendriel. Vendriel would foolishly ignore the words of Odin who advised him not to meet with Slanaash as he had not and instead listened to the words of Slanaash who told him the story thus dooming his shield and allowing the emotions and anger to come to the surface for Vendriel. Now corrupted Vendriel begin changing his city of Uldum from the old version to a Chaos version where demons walked freely among the city, and despite being challenged by his children he would not listen to reason, but also would not allow the main chaos forces to use his portal. Following his corruption the once constant contact between Odin and Vendriel ended and this troubled Odin who would after many failed attempts to reach his brother would travel to Uldum with many Valkyrie and his wife Freyja in order to talk to his brother in the belief that they would go to the Fade and help their father in the war. When he arrived he was shocked to see the changes in Uldum. It had been some time since he'd been there and the once gleaming white city was now stained purple and the old guards, and people had been replaced by demons and creatures of nightmares. Odin would enter the throne room of Vendriel and demand to know what had happened and his brother told him that he had heard the call of the true word and it told him of the true meaning of life, and that the goals of the Titans were no longer his goals. Vendriel begged his brother to assist him as he was going to assail the Fade from within the mighty city of Olympas. Odin refused and a battle broke out between the two which only ended when Odin and his Valkyrie, along with Freyja escaped the city and made their way back to Ulduar.
The Siege of Ulduar
Main Article : First Siege of Ulduar
Odin successfully returned to Ulduar where he rallied his forces for the coming fight declaring his immediate support for the Noble Titans and ending all suspense whether he would fight his brother. Leading his armies himself he would prepare to march against Uldum but was surprised by the arrival of massive Ape army led not by his brother but instead by his brothers son Meomil of whom put Ulduar under siege. Aelsir would surrender during the Siege of Ulduar after she watched her husband Vendriel send their son Meomil and hundreds of other Apes to their death in a pointless attempt to show their violence and resolve, and this act made her realize that Vendriel was lost.
The Battle of Uldum
Main Article : First Battle of Uldum
Following the failure at the Siege of Ulduar it was Vendriel that would be forced due to his poor military skills to fight a two front war with his main army fighting the forces of the Dwarves and their Pantheon in the north, while his other forces were slowly pushed back inch by inch by the forces of Valhalla. Finally the forces attacking the Dwarves were defeated and as they retreated back to Uldum they were caught between the avenging Dwarves and the forces of Valhalla and the were massacred in their thousands. Following this disaster Slanaash sent one of his brightest lieutenants to the battle in the form of Helester who took control of the forces of Vendriel and begin to lead a skilled defence of the mountains of Olympus. As the Titan Civil War ended in victory for Chaos the leadership caste that had been built by Helester returned to the Fade so that they could receive reinforcements to reengage their attack on the Dwarves and Valhalla. While they left Vendriel made a play to re control Olympus through the creation of a group of Olympians called the Vanir. The Vanir would be utterly loyal to him, and when Helester returned with a massive army he once again moved north and put Vedriel in command of the defence of his rear which should have been easy with the huge forces he had at his disposal. Instead of doing this Vendriel silently engaged Valhalla in battle, and would be destroyed on the steps of Valhalla by Odin and his commanders. With Vendriel defeated the forces of Valhalla pushed south and sacked Olympus putting it under their control, and it was in this moment that Helester realized he had failed to destroy the Dwarves and turned his forces around and split the army into two with his side attacking Valhalla, and a smaller force attacking Olympus. Helester was much reduced and was defeated and killed by the forces of Valhalla while his army attacking Olympus was also destroyed meaning the end of the attackers.
First Holy Charr Invasion
Main Article : First Holy Charr Invasion
Vongrith returned to his people and secluded himself and with the siege of Olympus having been launched he was allowed to be alone and in this situation he would become overcome with a sense that his entertainment was nothing more then an illusion and begin to hate it leading to him changing his people and forcing home every Charr from across the world where they returned to find the Charr being changed into a military engine.
Fall of Ursonoc
As the forces of Chaos had expanded, and their control of the area around Olympus grew they had attempted to corrupt Ursonoc one of the more powerful of the Noble Titans, and one of the more notable Noble Titans not within Olympus. Tzeneech went to Timbermaw Hold alongside Slanaash and the two attempted to convince him to remove his shield through the use of every manner of Magi, persuasion that they could possibly think of, but found that Ursonoc was discusted by the betrayal that Tzeneech spoke of. Tzeneech realizing that he couldn't convinse Ursonoc attempted to destroy him, and thus would battle him within the palace of Timbermaw. The three would fight for hours, and as it went on Tzeneech summoned to him Triton who also attempted to defeat Ursonoc, but Ursonoc was soon joined by his children including his most celebrated child in Vogun. Vogun would manage to turn the tide against Tzeneech who was forced to flee the fortress of Timbermaw. As Tzeneech fled the city alongside Triton and Slanaash he would poison the mind of Vogun.
With his poison running in Vogun, the son of Ursonoc found himself filled with jealously over the fact that he felt his father didn't respect his power. As this built up in the days of the actual Titan Civil War the father and son of Ursonoc, and Vogun fought side by side but as they returned to Kalimdor to rearm their forces Vogun's madness would finally bring everything crashing down. Vogun would ambush Ursonoc while he was supposed to be guarding him in his meditation and would destroy the powerful Titan. Vogun would blame the death on Zeus, and through this took control of a large part of the Fubolg army and brought it through into the Fade. Once into the Fade they would destroy a large section of the western palace region of Olympas where they believed Ursonoc was in complete control of. This attack would only be stopped when Poseidon himself entered the fray and battled Vogun nearly killing him. Defeated Vogun would not retreat and instead sent the remainder of his forces towards the main Chaos force so they would survive and then charged the walls of Olympas where it is said he died pierced by thousands of arrows as he screamed out for Zeus to face him.
First Siege of Tarterus
For Malekor the time to do some real damage to the Titans was now and he found the perfect oppurtunity when the Titan Neperune snuck out of Olympas on a mission to stop Nurgle from destroying the powerful fortress Tarterus which held in place the weaker section of Olympas from being able to be attacked. Malekor watched and hunted the young Titan as he led his powerful Murloc forces towards the Army of Nurgle. Neperune caught Nurgle unaware and was nearing the Chaos God himself when his army was blindsided by Melekor's massive Draenei forces. There was no escape for Neperune and he and his entire army were destroyed on the field which left one of the most important commanders in the Titan army dead and a sizeable portion of the army in tatters. The Twin Titans Morkha, and Ghorka had rallied there forces when Neperune had left Tarterus and by this point they were outside the walls of Tarterus and witnessing the defeat of Neperune they would move their forces within augmenting the defences.
Ghorka, and Morkha would fight during the Battle of Olympus where they defended the walls alongside their personal Greenskin forces and their children and it was during this fighting that Ghorka would be killed by their fellow First Generation Titan brothers in the form of the fallen Hyperion, and Hynos of whom infiltrated the fortress of the Crystal Spire and killed Ghorka, and Morka alongside several of their children.
With Neperune, and the twin Titans in Ghorka and Morkha dead the defenders of Tarterus lost their most important defenders and a sizeable force so the thought by them was very much that they were in serious trouble. With a weak spot appearing Slanaash brought his mighty Elven forces to bear against the fortress alongside Nurgle, and Malekor's forces and as the walls of the fortress appeared ready to collapse the defenders were saved by the arrival of Imperius who brought his gleaming knights and was able to defeat Nurgle in combat causing the retreat of his forces and the momentary ending of the seige. By the time the Chaos forces had regrouped the defenses had been trippled and the fortress of Tarterus appeared unshakable.
Duel with TzeneechAs the siege of Tarterus and Olympas wore on the first Chaos God in Tzeneech wandered the battlefield attempting to find an outlet for his aggression following his failure against Ursonoc, and as he wiped town after town off the map of the Fade he was finally confronted by Ares the God of War for the Titans. Ares was beyond skilled, and he led his army of mysterious creatures against the forces of Tzeneech. The two fought battle after battle but each time Ares came out victorious despite the massive numbers advantage that Tzeneech had. This begin to irritate Tzeneech to no end, and thus he brought all of his forces to bear against Ares forces in what would be a massive battle over the town of Elis. As the two sides met the forces of Tzeneech outnumbered the strange army of Ares by nearly 15-1 but when the dust settled after the initial assault the forces of Tzeneech had been badly damaged, and the defenders were barely injured. As his forces begin to waver the Chaos God Tzeneech himself entered the battle and taunted the mighty Ares to fight him on the field. The two gods battled their way through the opposing armies until they were face to face, and when they met they immediatly begin fighting. The two were equally matched but as Tzeneech watched his army desinigrated around him as the forces of Ares massacred his army. After days of fighting Ares stepped back and laughed at Tzeneech, and when Tzeneech looked around he realized that his army was destroyed and he was now completely surrounded. Ares prepared to deliver the death blow but the massively powerful Tzeneech teleported himself to his personal lair leaving Ares without his complete victory but he had destroyed one of the largest forces that the forces of Chaos had.
Second Siege of Tarterus
Coruption of Hypnos
Hypnos would fight for the forces of the Noble Titans during the Titan Civil War, and fought bravely alongside his daughter Hypnia during the initial assault on Olympus, but during the Second Siege of Tarterus he was captured by the forces of Chaos and corupted.
Attack on Diamond Gate
Neru brought his forces to fortress capital of Olympas where all the Titans had been born, and by this point the fortress of Tarterus had fallen and all that was left was Olympas and a few other fortresses, and Khorne had been fighting over and over in attempts to break the siege but each time the defenders were saved by the intervention of Poseidan, Ares, and Zeus of whom stood resolute on the walls of Olympas, and its magical Diamond Gate. At this point with stalemate setting in Slanaash went to Neru one more time and decided to have Neru move against the Diamond Gate with his massive forces, and use the Magi of his people to break the Diamond Gates. It's unknown if Slanaash believed this was possible but Kargoth now believes that he did this as a means of killing another of the Chaos Gods for his enjoyment, and hates him because of it. Neru would listen and alongside several other Demi-Titans would move against the Diamond Gate. Kargoth, Neru, and the Djinn would wipe out the defenders outside the gate and begin summoning spells to destroy the Gate all the while taking huge losses from the defenders all across the Gate, and the wall. As the spell though reached its zenith the Titan Ares and the Angiris Hosts most elite forces summoned out front of the Diamond Gate and battled the Djinn. Seeing his force dying around him Neru would challenge Ares to battle, but in an act of great insult Ares would reject the offer and continue massacring the Djinn summoning the spell.
"I believed him to be invisible for my entire excistence so seeing him fall was a moment of incredible horror. He turned around as the blade sliced through his chest, and his eyes looked full of regret, and horror, and I made a full bee line towards in the hopes I could save him. As I moved forward as if it was happening in slow motion his body begin to move away like sand blowing in the wind. By the time I reached him grabbed for him but nothing remained of him except the dust from him."
As neru chased him around the battlefield the Archangel Imperius would step forward and duel him. Neru must have believed him a joke, but after only a few minutes of fighting Imperius layed him low, and destroyed Neru forever. With the death of Neru the force of Djinn became overcome with fear, and Ares, and the Angiris Host made their retreat through the Diamond Gate leaving the rest of the force to be slowly destroyed by the defenders on the walls. In a moment of leadership Kargoth would gather the leadership across the battlefield of the Djinn and lead them off the field of battle towards their old home in the Fade. As they fled the battlefield they were harassed by the forces of Chaos of whom did not want them to retreat as they were close to breaking the Diamond Gate and basically wanted them to die for a little more damage on the gate. Either way Kargoth managed to get the rest of the Djinn out, and they would make their way to their home in the Fade. When they reached it Kargoth knew they couldn't remain so they made their way to the Earth where he planned to hide his people in the same way his father had hid inside the Fade. Kargoth and the Djinn would decide quickly that they would take no part in the First War on Earth because they were rebuilding their strength in the lands now known as the Kizlev.
With the siege dragging on but not fully capable of being won due to the overwhelming defences the other Chaos Gods attempted to make the Titans leave the safety of their fortress by overwhelming entire corners of the Fade and in this way taunting the Titans to stop them from unleashing hell on the planet. With the threat completely real the Titans mobilized all their strength and attempted to break the siege, but discovered that the Chaos Gods completely outnumbered them and they were swiftly beaten back into Olympas with heavy losses.
With the Titans beaten thourghally but still holding the inpenatrable Olympas the Chaos Gods moved their plans to unleashing their massive armies on the planet Earth.
Main Article : Archervon Hold
Tyr during the years preceding the Great Migration was sent far to the north on the orders of his father and founded the Archervon Hold in Norway alongside the earliest of his children which would grow to become the Fire Giants. His arrival in Norway would become a beacon for the forces of Chaos who saw him and knew that he would be their greatest threat as they slowly moved their Andals into position to sack northern Europe.
In the years where the Andals were corrupted by the forces of Chaos Tyr was not aware that this massive of an assault was incoming and thus he simply went about following the path that his father had sent him to Norway with and protected the warp portals not truly intervening in the affairs of Norway, and Swedan.
Rise of the Sanguin Bloodline
| A Son and Daughter|
I never thought I would take a progeny. Never thought for one second that I would turn another person into this creature we are now. Looking at you and your sister so close to death I knew I had to save you. Even if by saving you I doomed you both.
While the Vampire Court of Lahmia was staying in Greece planning their next moves it would be the anger that many felt over their defeat in Lahmia and being forced to live in a foreign land that would lead to much of the court including Angelica Neferata to start losing themselves in the blood lust they felt. As this violence escalated and Godrick and the other sensible Vampires of the Lahmia court saw no other options it would be Godrick that left the court in disgust for their behavior and traveled northward where he stayed for some time in Denmark. Living there for decades he was present as the flow of refugees started flowing in as a response to the Rise of the Andals and the exodus of the Vandal, and Goth people from Norway and Swedan. Seeing this and wanting to do something about what was going on he would travel into Swedan where following the flow of information in southern Swedan he eventually found his way into Northern Swedan where he would enter the court of the northern Vandal nation known as the Kingdom of Oland.
Fighting with the Vandals
Main Article : Fall of Oland
Entering the Kingdom of Oland he would discover the truth behind the stories being told in southern Swedan as he discovered the lands were being assaulted by the forces of Chaos who had taken control of the Andals, and the Andal nation known as the Empire of Kvenland. In this position he would enter the court of Oland where he became a powerful adviser to King Ulfrik Oland of whom he was honest with about being a Vampire and in this manner Ulfrik would begin to reveal the truth behind the situation with Kvenland. Describing to Godrick how months priot to Godrick's arrival the Andals of Kvenland had sent priests to his city trying to convert them to the worship of Chaos Gods and when he rejected this the Andals begin to be openly hostile. Wanting to resist the forces of Chaos due to his memory of Nagash, and everything evil in his life having been caused by the Chaos worshiping Nagash he would swear himself to the service of Ulfrik. Growing to trust Godrick it would be Ulfrik that would give command of a small group of Oland knights and using these forces Godrick would deliver several victories which led to his promotion by Ulfrik to the command of a significant portion of the Oland army to Godrick of whom fought with immense skill against the Andals delivering them two major defeats during his command.
Following a third defeat of the Andals by the army of Godrick the leader of the Andals in the form of Jannok would travel to the front with two of her children in the form of Dannok, and Valenia at the head of a massive army nearly two hundred thousand strong. The Vandal forces were no more then thirty thousand and exhausted from the constant fighting there moral was destroyed by the coming of this massive army, but Godrick was able to maintain some semblance of order during this time keeping the front from completely collapsing. Following the arrival of this massive army three of the petty kingdoms south of Oland would send forces northward now seeing the threat to themselves augmenting the forces of Oland to nearly sixty thousand but their numbers were still nothing compared to the numbers of the Andals. Jannok would split her forces into two attacking Oland from two opposite sides of the country forcing Godrick to split his army into two with himself leading the smaller army of twenty thousand and King Ulfrik leading the larger army against Dannok.
Eric Oland would be within the capital of Oland when his father suffered a devastating defeat against the forces of the Andals in the north and with the Oland army crushed and no longer able to defend the capital the Andals overran the defenses sacking the city and the palace where Eric had lived his entire life. Despite finally fighting against the Andals leading the towns defense during its final hour he would be defeated by the overwhelming numbers of Andals and lay mortally wounded beside his murdered sister and mother, and it was in this position where he was discovered by Godrick of whom had promised Eric's father he woulds save his son, and did this by turning the mortally wounded Eric into a Vampire.
Hearts and Minds
While her family was gone Rowena was the regent of the Andals and she would become the target of both sides of the Titan conflict when Odin sent his daughter Siggi and on his command she would travel into the lands of the Andals where she would become the voice of reason for the "Daughter of Flemeth" Jannok's daughter Rowena of whom was also being targeted by a Chaos agent, but Siggi would win in this battle allowing Rowena to remain uncorrected. With Rowena uncorupted she would spend the time as regent silently sending resources and support to the Kingdom of
The End of Jannok
Following the destruction of the Vandal Kingdom of Oland the lands of Swedan were basically open to the Invasion of the Andals, but for Jannok her role in the killings was too much and she was emotionally devastated by what she had caused including most painful of all being the complete moral loss of her son, and the increasingly declining morality of her daughter Valenia while they had been fighting. Returning to the capital of the Andals following the defeat of the Kingdom of Oland it was Jannok that would come to speak to her daughter Rowena of whom she sensed still retained her morality, and together after this discsussion it was Rowena that introduced her mother to Siggi. begin making plans to change the Andals back to their non-Chaos leaning religions. Supported by her two daughters Jannok would believe she had secretly put this plan in place, but shortly before it was to move forward she would be confronted in the Palace grounds of her kingdom by Flemeth and her son, and following a battle between the group it would Flemeth that took Jannok away leaving Dannok in command of the Andals, while Valenia, and Rowena would flee southward
Last Stand of Upsal
Main Article : Fall of Upsal
The Kingdom of Upsal had been one of the three petty kingdoms which has sent aid to Oland during the invasion of the forces of the Andals, and thus the people of Upsal were aware of the consequences of the defeat of Oland, and in this way many in Upsal had begun fleeing southward including the Upsal royal family and most of the nobility leaving the army severly depleted, and thus allowing the Andals to move basically wherever they chose. The capital of the Kigndom of Upsal was the town of Upsal and it was here where Eric, and Godrick arrived and arriving there they discovered the town was preparing to fight in what amounted to a terrible last stand as they were horribly outnumbered by the coming Andals but Prince Leopold Dorginvin was unwilling to abandon the capital.
Travelling southward following the meeting with Jannok it was Eric, and Godrick that would come upon the village of Nora Vonhesha and staying there for the night before making there way the final way to the capital of the larger southern petty Kingdom of Tonsul. Staying the night he and Eric would be within the village when it was assaulted by a vanguard force from the forces of the Andals of whom were still busy ransacking Oland but small groups were not moving southward. Filled with hatred over the deaths of his family Eric would refuse to retreat and Godrick was unwilling to leave him so the two would remain and fight alongside the Vandal defenders which led to them destroying the Andal force but following the battle Nora would be found dying and Godrick would take pity on her turning her into vampire and taking her with himself and Eric following this going southward.
Denmark Civil War
Main Article : Denmark Civil War
As the non-Chaos aligned Germans begin fleeing Norway, and Swedan the main route of their escape outside of those who could find boats was through Denmark where the Imperium of Germania put in place a directive that the province of Denmark was to assist in their retreat and assist in them moving south where the goal was to overwhelm Central Europe with large amounts of Germans. This flow of Germans southward would continue for some time unopposed as thousands upon thousands of Germans escaped the Chaos Proselytism and made their way through Denmark, but the flow would grind to a halt when Flemeth entered the region of Denmark and targeted House Glusburg the most powerful of the merchant families of Copenhagen for corruption. Entering Copenhagen Flemeth would find little moral problems with the family especially its lord in the form of Alf Glusburg of whom was a fanatic when it came to resisting Chaos and was closely supported by several Sigmar Priests of whom kept Flemeth from ever really being able to get close to Alf. Unable to corrupt the leadership of House Glusburg she prepared to move on when the return of Isabel Glusburg, and her brother Theis Glusburg led to Flemeth taking another road when she was able to get close to the two siblings. Playing on their weakenesses she would fully corrupt both of them leading to their secret "'suicides" of which following this Isabel became a "Daughter of Flemeth" while Theis became one of the Dark Men.Using Theis, and Isabel Flemeth was able to have them murder their father and without his presence she was able to have her agents commit atrocities throughout Copenhagen specifically targeting the Church of Sigmar of whom were devestated by these attacks. Now in control of Copenhagen Flemeth would begin charging massive fees to the Vandals to slow their progress, and when this didn't fully work she had Isabel deploy the forces of her family into south-western Swedan where they pushed back the retreating Germans. This was against the commands of the Emperor of whom at the time was Mandred Gausser and was much the same as Alf Glusburg in that he was a fanatical believer in Sigmar and for this reason when Mandred discovered what was happening in Denmark he hosted a Great Blot of the Imperium of Germania and despite agents of Flemeth going to the Blot they were unable to stop Mandred of whom instigated the Denmark Civil War. Leading a massive army of Sigmar fanatics and the state forces of Bavaria, Hannover, Prussia, and the Lowlands he would invade Denmark gaining the support of most of the population and putting Copenhagen under siege. As Copenhagen remained under siege it was the forces of Odin who came to the city and led by Tyr and his lovers Tola, and Signy they would hunt for Flemeth who realizing they had arrived begin to plan for her retreat out of the city. Before Flemeth was able to flee it was Tyr who found Isabel and alongside Tola and Signy was able to defeat her in combat and before Flemeth could arrive with her forces to try and help Isabel it was Tyr who was able to remove some of the corruption on Isabel. Following this Tyr and his wives would leave the city and move to the army of Mandred Gausser planning to assist him in finishing the siege, but they left behind a changed Isabel who with a shred of free will would realize the plans of Flemeth were going to leave her family destroyed and would go to her youngest brother Christian Glusburg who was just a baby and take him north of Copenhagen where she used Magi to construct a hidden vault known as the Vault of Glusburg for him to stay in and then placing her brother in a Magi coma she returned to Copenhagen. Flemeth would flee the city with Isabel, but left Theis behind of whom tried defending the city but at this time the work of Godrik, and his children could not be resisted and they were able to rally the remaining Priests of Sigmar to their side, and confronted Theis in the Palace of Copenhagen where a large fight broke out. Theis fought valiently but was overwhelmed by the Vampire/Sigmar force and killed during the fighting, and as he was killed by Sigmar Priests this would be his permenent death. Following the death of Theis the Flemeth loyalists were a completely broken force and the before Mandred even reached the army of Flemeth in Swedan which was blocking the Germans the army had disbanded with its commanders either retreating northward to the Andals or been killed by the army that was never really interested in fighting in Swedan. Mandred would during this moment begin the construction of the Great Copenhagen Bridge of which was constructed with the abiltity to be raised and lowered through a series of flooding levies, and this work allowed for the greater fortification of the land route between Swedan, and Denmark, but also allowed for a much easier crossing for the Germans of whom Mandred would work extensively with making sure they moved into Central Europe south of the Imperium just as he desired.
First Archervon Warp Invasion

Tyr would be forced to defend Archervon Hold against an onslaught of demons attacking it from the Warp Portal during an event known as the First Archervon Warp Invasion and during this conflict he was forced to deactivate one of the portals after it became clear that they could not hold out against the endless armies of demons flowing through.

Tyr would be betrayed from within by his grandson Gyrd of whom became corupted by Chaos while fighting in Norway and returned to Archervon and reactivated the Warp Portal to the fade initiating the Second Archervon Warp Invasion, and during the fighting they were able to once again close the warp portal but Gyrd escaped through it before it closed.
Vengeance of the Survivors
Main Article : The Burned Flower Campaign
| The Burned Flower Campaign|
You ruined our lives. Did you not think we would come for our vengeance?
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
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.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. 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.
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.
Skirmish at Onemsson Estate
Main Article : Skirmish at Onemsson Estate
Visimar continues to attempt to recover under the watchful guard of the man who has revealed himself as Starolf Onemsson and his wife Adelheid Onemsson and it is while recovering that he gets to know the two better, and they form a friendship over the days that follow but are still unwilling to let him go considering the state they found him in. 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.
