The Untold Prophesy

In the weeks that have come by after the unfortunate encounter, the renowned expedition had arrived back at Karak Kadrin with the legendary Leranorak. Word spread around like bushfire, before long, from the Ports of Ulthuan, to the coast of Estalia, to the Forst of Altdorf and the Plains of Quenelles, many have received the news of the sword.

Travelling from the Empire to Bretonnia, to even Athel Loren, Lady Mesa sought to find the secret to destroy the sword as was instructed by the Lady of the Lake in her visions. After many nights of searching in the various libraries, she stumbled upon a ancient book of folklores, of which the Leranorak was pointed out in it. The Archive of the Glade in Athel Loren provided much information. It is said that the blade of madness can only be consumed by the chasm of madness. "A Warped Portal" formed in the deep east of the World's Edge Mountains, thousands upon thousands of years ago, before even the Warrior's foretold Path of Glory.

As instructed by the Prophetess, the Imperial General drawed arms and seeked his infamous Grimmigkopf to sally forth to resist a retaliation from the Hordes of Chaos led by the Deliverer himself. At the same time, the Elector Count of Altdorf had pledge his allegiance to the cause, ready to aid the General in the defense of the Old World from any attack from the East, along with the Slayer Army of Karak Kadrin.

Furion and his Wood Elves were instructed by the High Council of the Glade to observe of the progress of the situation from a battle post in the World's Edge Mountain, not even giving orders or furthur information on the rules of engagement, but looking at the supplies and equipment, it seems it will be a long observation of situation.

Receiving the news of Lord Casta De Bromric's death, the populace of Aisenhald mourned for days. The Great Protector, keeper and caregiver of the province had left for another realm after forty years of Great ruling. It was even rumoured that the King broke down upon hearing the news, but urgent matters had to be settle in regards to the threat of a full invasion from the East. The King thus called upon the Leader of the Vanguard of Tempest under the guidance of the Grail Order of the Shroud to give aid to Captain Wincor. Jared Wilcox, the sole survivor among the two brothers, willingly accpeted the assignment, eager to deal justice upon the enemies of his late Lord and Brother.

Speculations of a new Lord for Aisenhald grows as days go by, but the Grail Order of the Shroud does not give any hints of a replacement, let alone even finding for one at all.

Little is known about what the Blood Dragons intention are, but many feel that the Sharikas and the Vampires are not to be trusted easily.

Similarly, Ogren Cockripper did not show his intent after his recovery from his fatal knockout, but there was much bellowing and fist fighting within his Ogre Warband itself.

Lithir's father upon hearing the entire story of Lithir's adventure decided that the arrowmerchant's dealing in the issue may not be enough for the guild to handle, and have let it known to the High Elf Ruling Council to see to the matter. Proud of his son's foresight in joining the expedition in the first place and attaining an even greater reputation for the guild, the Father grants him the command of a few Dragon Princes who pledge their allegiance to Lithir's father.

While preparing to go forth back to the World's Edge Mountain with more than just a conviy, the mysterious tradesman finds Lithir and his brother in the port of Ulthuan and pleas to them to acquire the artifact as he had ask way before, when they were in Kislev, even promising enough gold and precious metal to re-arm the entire Bretonnian Army. The prospect of such business was appetizing and Lithir would have gladly accepted it, if not for the fact that the tradesman was dealing in such a shady and unjust manner. The Arrowmerchant refused the offer only to be at the receiving end of the mysterious tradesman's threats. The threats were quickly dismissed as the brothers realise the importance of the next part of their campaign and were too busy to even bother about it. THe High Council finally decided that the Arrowmerchants shall aid the Imperial FOrces, and helped Lady Mesa to find a way to destroy the Leranorak.

By a moon and a half cycles, the forces rallied, occupying various territories that were to be the frontier lines against this new chaos horde army. Forts were already preconstructed by the Dwarves as Bretonnians, Empire, Ogre Kingdom, Vampire Counts, High Elves and Wood Elves take up certain territories for defense.

But in the midst, the companionship and the gathering starts to fade as the individual lines are drawn. The Renowns wait, anticipating the call to arms, as the horns of war have yet to sound.
