About this blog
Haunting omens rob mortals of sleep across the realms. From proclamation of high priests to hags’ confused babblings at nervous young mothers and their suckling babes, all recognize that something dark is afoot and seek to make sense of the growing sense of terror clawing at their minds. The dead no longer find eternal rest.
In Ghyran, a clan of duardin priests commune with their ancestors through the preservation of their goddess’ holy mountains and the untamed wilderness spread across them. For ages beyond counting, the spirits of their dead have passed on to feast in unassailable halls where they can come and go as they please. The honored amongst them are reborn as great beastial guardians, overwhelming would be conquerors as living embodiments of the ancestors’ collective strength.
However, this journey of devotion can no longer be traveled. Immortal deities vie for every soul in the realms. Each orchestrates a war with the others in which they justify the slaughter of their subjects and enemies alike as a means to preserving their independence and way of life. In reality, it is simply a desperate fight to not be drained of their own immortality by the great necromancer, for all souls are owed to Nagaash in death, and he now comes to collect on this debt.
This storyline will follow the Malign Portents narrative. It is of my own creation, and as such does not ties closely with any existing AOS faction. Rather, it is meant to begin to introduce alternative duardin of the realms in a way that links to current happenings, namely MP, in the established AOS narrative and can later tie to my own main narrative and setting in Chamon, The Barazi-Wyr. Feedback is welcome. I hope you enjoy. Thanks for reading.
