[2d], The most widely acknowledged Elven gods outside of Naggaroth are the Cadai, or the gods of the Heavens, who represent the more positive characteristics of Elven culture and the natural world. If anything, Finubar the Seafarer, the newly crowned Phoenix King, succeeded in uniting his people to a degree unseen since days of Aenarion. From beneath the Blackspine Mountains, the Dark Elves ventured further and further into Lustria to the south. Patrols from the fortifications swept the lands clear of the primitive human tribes that came south intent on pillaging; all that they found was a grisly death or the chains of the slavemasters. With prayers upon his lips, Aenarion hurled himself into the white-hot flames. We just now have Elves. wh2_main_great_vortex: Culture. With their beachhead secure, the High Elves pushed more troops onto the Blighted Isle and advanced upon the Shrine of Khaine. The tradition! [1k], In the coming years, rule of Ulthuan passed to Morvael, known in history as "the Impetuous." Fleeing retribution, Girathon swapped places with an innocent servant of the court, casting a glamour upon his victim to give him the appearance of the spymaster. Even as the tide turned against his army, Caledor led the counterattack. Claiming a seat at the obsidian table is one of the highest honours, but also one of the most dangerous. Goes to show what GW thinks of the colonies. From hidden coves, Dark Elf raiders looted gold convoys and slave-traders, and brought back the riches of kings to adorn the palaces of Malekith. The seductive, cold beauty of a Dark Elven woman. None of this is to say that the Dark Elves wish to see all other peoples exterminated out of hand. The warrior creed of Aenarion had left an indelible mark upon Nagarythe and its citizenry. The Elven Mage whispered a prayer to Asuryan and drew on the power of his staff, gifted to him by Alarielle. If you have no STRONG feelings one way or the other, take the Dark Elvesâ¦ He would rather the world ended than see its greatest gem ruled by any other. This was to change dramatically when the Dark Elves of Hag Graef mined further into the mountains. The Sorceresses sent mystical word to their mistress in Naggarond, though many were slain in the attempt by Daemonic entities brought south upon the winds of Chaos. [1c], None consider the possibility that, when the last High Elf dies screaming in agony upon Khaine's altar, that ultimate victory might leave a void of purpose that is impossible to fill. Do you want your Elves to take the next logical step in their belief of 'we're better than everyone' over to 'so we should be allowed to kill them?' Kept afloat by magic, the Black Arks travel far and wide to procure slaves. The Dark Elves burnt Averlorn, razing woodland and meadow as they hunted for the Everqueen and her companion.[1k]. Cold One Knights strike home in a blur of steel and claw, the cold skill of the riders matched only by the savagery of their steeds. He has never spoken of what he endured, not even to his mother, but eventually Malekith clawed and fought his way back to the world of mortals and was found not far from the northern watch towers, his body broken, his armoured skin rent with savage gashes and dents. In the former case, the surviving slaves tend to sail the captured ship to their freedom. They whispered about the darkness that had beset the realm of Nagarythe, and of the manner of the son that had been raised in the Court of Aenarion. He ordered his Corsairs to target the Dwarf trade convoys, and provided maps of their secret routes that he had learnt whilst he was ambassador to Snorri Whitebeard. Product description For Thousands of years, the Dark Elves have plundered the riches of the world, using the blood and treasure of distant lands to fuel their war against the High Elves. He had faked his own death so that he could continue to operate within Naggaroth and Ulthuan in absolute secrecy. As the sorcerers of Malekith stood upon the summits of their black towers and struggled for control of the vortex, great forces shook the lands. When the deeds of old can be erased by a cleverly-spoken word, what need is there for integrity and law? Freed from their long stasis, Caledor Dragontamer and his mages so long trapped within the vortex's stasis returned to the realm of the living. Malekith's screams echoed around the chamber, silencing the fighting. Further eastward still, upon a continent infested with humans and other barbaric primitives, lies Athel Loren, the realm of the Wood Elves, the Asrai. Though the reverse was unexpected, Tethlis had not plunged foolishly headlong towards Anlec. The host of Malekith dwarfed that of the High Elves. Particularly in the freezing winter months, travelling under the surface proved much safer than overland or across the storm-wracked Sea of Malice. Bitter winter snows and winds swathed Nagarythe and Tethlis' army was forced to retreat to the gates and would be unable to launch their campaign until the following spring. The High Elves of Ulthuan remembered the lessons of the civil war and Malekith was unable to forge across the mountains to attack the Inner Kingdoms. Thus do their Black Arks and Corsair Fleets ply the great waters of the world, raiding and enslaving all before them as a tribute to their own avaricious desires. An oath of fealty to the Witch King would ensure his protection. In the ranting of waking nightmares, the Witch King spoke of castles of bones and forests of eyes. The Dark Elves, or the Druchii as they call themselves in their own tongue, also known as the Nagarrothi or the "Dark Ones",[5a] are one of the most ancient, powerful, and certainly the most sadistic of the three Elven civilisations of the world. In this way, for hundreds if not thousands of years, countless millions of doomed souls have been taken back to Naggaroth to a fate worse than death.[3m]. He tasked Tethlis with driving the kin of Naggaroth back from the walls of Griffon Gate. In Naggaroth, the survivors of the war drifted back to their homes, quiet and chastened by defeat. Dark Elves, in particular, are adept at the art of twisting speech to serve their cause and can gleefully manipulate the emotions of another to whatever end best suits their own interests. It is a match well made, for the Dark Elves care nothing for the sanctity of life and consider the "lesser races" to be nothing more than insects begging to be ground beneath a boot heel if no more productive or entertaining use can be found for them. Daemons howled and gibbered as the titanic magical forces opened breaches into the Realm of Chaos, while upon the field Dark Elf and High Elf blood matted the grass and turned the ground into a crimson quagmire.[1k]. Over the course of centuries, many realms experienced both the cold embrace and the wicked betrayal of Dark Elf diplomacy. The Wood Elves listened politely for a time, then bade the Dark Elves leave, and never return.[1k]. As the Dark Elves stormed towards the gates, bolt throwers and archers on the valley tops unleashed a storm of arrows that slew one in five of the attackers in the first volley. To ensure that the Phoenix King did not claim the Godslayer, Malekith led an attack that swept across the northern isles of Ulthuan -- the Shadowlands that remained of Nagarythe, what little had been spared by the tidal waves. Yet for all her foresight and cunning, Morathi could not locate all of the strands of fate that would lead to ultimate victory over Ulthuan.[1k]. Driven mad by his dreams, overwhelmed by the terrors unleashed by the Dark Elves, Morvael committed suicide. The Dark Elves are one of three elven civilizations and are â¦ Malekith said that Bel Shanaar had taken the coward's route rather than be brought forth before the princes, and had poisoned himself before he could be rightfully tried. Enraged that Alarielle still lived, Malekith turned all of his fury upon the High Elves. Bodies and blood littered the waters as the volleys poured down from the cliff tops into the seas below. Guided by Dark Elf steersmen, this flotilla crossed the Sea of Malice to await its human cargo. The baying and roaring of their beasts could be heard for miles and the bitter cold did not slow nor turn their headlong attack.[1k]. None would dare to ever defy the Witch King and his rule, for all those that have no longer live within this world. Their natural grace steeled with the discipline of Aenarion, the armies of Ulthuan grew in power year by year. With the Inner Kingdoms secure against attack by the mountain fortresses, Caledor deemed the time was right to drive Malekith and his Dark Elves from Ulthuan once and for all. This underlying order goes entirely unnoticed by those few outsiders who glimpse the inner workings of Naggaroth. The Blighted Isle had been lost, and with it all Dark Elf presence had been driven from Ulthuan for the second time. Malekith and his followers were willing to risk everything for victory -- even the future of the whole world. In reality, it's because Games Workshop has admitted they just write whatever numbers they want at the time and there are as many Elves as the plot demands. For nearly ten years, the High Elf fleets sunk any Naggarothi ships that approached the northern coast. The earth heaved and cracked, and so great was the magical explosion that it was noted in the halls of the Dwarfs, thousands of miles to the east. Events finally took a turn that Malekith took to be the sign to attack. The bolts from the crossbows on the cliffs were relentless, hitting friend as often as foe, for the warriors of Malekith knew only that they had to drive their enemies back into the seas where the Black Arks awaited them. Malekith laughed at the thought of the betrayal of both races that had once lauded him as a hero. Later legends say that Morathi bewitched the Phoenix King, though it will never be known whether this is true or if he simply did not care about her true character and prior history in his rage and pain.[1k]. Situated in a sheer-sided valley, the location of their new city was easily defensible against the creatures of the mountains and any punitive attack that Malekith might launch. With the Daemonic invasion defeated, the Elves looked to explore the world that had been left changed by the assault of Chaos. [1c], Stormclouds gather across the High Elf realms, and the Witch King's malevolent laughter echoes upon the wind. Though his guards were all killed, Tethlis himself suffered not a single scratch and he returned to the Phoenix Gate unharmed.[1k]. Doing slave labor isn't any better, since they'll be continuously whipped or beaten to work until exhaustion, after which they'll still be tortured or sacrificed (and on the rare occasions they do get fed, you don't want to know what the food is or where they got it). They knew that it was better to be poisoned than suffer under the rule of the others. They were able tame Cold Ones, Manticores (though their bloodlust leads to temporary losses of control as the Manticore goes LEEROY), sea monsters including the Kharibdyss (though they're so ravenous and primeval the Dark Elves occasionally lose control of them with mass Dark Elf casualties, starting with the handlers), fire breathing Hydras and Black Dragons (though the dragons are intelligent enough that it's as much an alliance as taming). At Malekith's command, they recommenced their raids upon Ulthuan's shores, wreaking whatever woe they could. Malekith's bloody recriminations were short-lived as Tethlis launched his inevitable counterattack. Their commanders were veterans of the war against the Daemons and many had been trained by the hand of Aenarion himself.[1k]. [1c], The earliest days of the Elves go unrecorded, even by their own chronicles. [1c], With every year that passes, the power of Naggaroth ascends to greater heights, built upon the backs of slaves and fuelled by a constant stream of plunder from far-off lands. The backlash of so much raw magical power tore Ulthuan asunder. The Age of Endless Glory (-4500 to -4419 IC), The Age of Restless Spite (-2723 to -692 IC), The Age of Hateful Peace (-692 to 1123 IC), The Age of Glorious Torment (1503 to 2300 IC). When the great star gate of the Old Ones collapsed, the ravaging Realm of Chaos spilled into the world and a tide of Daemons swept across the globe. So after his followers escaped with their charred leader, Morathi saved her son from death and commissioned a renegade priest of Vaul to create the Armor of Midnight and welded it to Malekiths flesh. The Witch King knew this did not bode well for his desire to claim Ulthuan. Now steeped in the blackest of magic, Morathi sought further means to increase her mystical power. but this is now corrected and now he is not the Witch King but Eternity King Malekith, all hail! Ghrond, the North Tower, this citadel was called, and here Morathi founded the Convent of Sorceresses. Any one of them willing to risk his life to rule should take a drink and Malekith would grant that noble a share of the city. In Naggaroth, Malekith's domains spread ever further. An icy river that flows through the city to the Sea of Malice provided a natural harbour for Dark Elf fleets. Competition for the Witch King's permission to raid these lands fuelled a period of infighting and politicking that saw Malekith's coffers swell with gold and silver.[1k]. Messengers were sent to the east and west, declaring that the Queen of the Elves would handsomely reward any who would fight for her.[1k]. Unknown to either the Phoenix King or Malekith, the Swordmasters were waging a silent war against the pleasure cults and the conflict came to a climax in Lothern itself, when fighting erupted on the streets of the city between Naggarothi agents and the warriors of the Swordmasters, during which the cultists were all slain. [2d], Dark Elves are bitter, vicious killers that detest all other creatures -- even other Dark Elves. Knowing that to retreat would be to give the Dark Elves an opportunity to counterattack, Caledor pushed onwards, fighting for every hillock, valley and isle. The shifting inner energies of Chaos swelled with power, straining and boiling as they built up like a tide. His departure was seen by the scrying spells of Morathi and she called down a storm to sink the High Elf fleet. See our article on Black Arks for a list of buildings that can be constructed on Black Arks. With the power of Chaos strengthening, more tribes of northern Marauders tried to breach the cordon of the watch towers. 8th edition shows the ones who were alive when Malekith came to power are still around, only Malekith sold their souls to Slaanesh so they're too busy trying not to get their souls raped to try and murder his ass. Though his mother, Morathi, ranted and railed against the iniquity heaped upon Malekith, the son of Aenarion was the first to bow his knee to Bel Shanaar and swear fealty.[1k]. Aenarion himself slew four Greater Daemons of Chaos, with the help of faithful Indraugnir. Many of their commanders feared returning to Naggarond, wary of the Witch King's temper and the machinations of Morathi. This indeed was news that could not be borne. He asked that he be allowed to honour his father's memory and serve as his successor, but there were voices raised against this course of action. With his capital established, Malekith turned his attention back to Ulthuan. Tethlis had the tenacity and military nerve of Caledor I, who had thwarted Malekith's ambitions so many years before. At the top of the steps, the altars flowed with blood as sacrifices were made on an almost industrial scale.[1k]. When the armies of the Dragon Emperor arrived, the Dark Elves had already returned to sea. Elsewhere, the armies of Naggaroth advanced without pause, Malekith's generals eager to outdo their rivals. Though his despair at Astarielle's death never abated, Aenarion took a new wife, to bear him a son and heir. He abandoned Anlec, breaking out of a siege that lasted for two hundred days, and made for the sanctuary of the Blighted Isle. The Dark Elves are one of the villainous races/factions of the tabletop wargame Warhammer Fantasy and its related media. As Elven blood was spilt by other Elves upon the marble floor, Malekith strode into the sacred flames to accept Asuryan's blessing as the new Phoenix King. Phoenix King Caledor II had succeeded Malekith's adversary during the civil war. - The Dark Elves are no more as Malekith becomes rightful king of all elfkind and merges the three kinds (dark, high and wood) back into one flavour and sets up his new kingdom in Athel Loren. Once upon a fucking time, there was an elf named Malekith, who was the child of the King Aenarion and the Sorceress Morathi. Dark Elves are an army originally from the Warhammer: Fantasy Battles â¦ This information in turn allowed the Dark Elves to infiltrate the courts of such realms. The Assassins seeking the Everqueen came upon their prey one night, almost by chance. They pressed on into the Inner Kingdoms where the weather was much milder. [1b], They are relentlessly aggressive in battle, shouting praises to their black gods as they cut down their foes. Girathon continued to serve the Witch King for another three hundred years, during which he returned to Ulthuan eight more times. He gathered a massive number of prisoners in preparation for a great sacrificial ritual and announced his plan to his followers. Waves of despair and anger flowed through the miasmic vortices of raw magic, bringing scenes of death and destruction that both thrilled and chilled the onlookers. The Dark â¦ That wound of old, the hideous burning that would never leave him, raged anew through Malekith's body, searing his flesh and mind. Malekith swore undying devotion to the Lord of Murder in the shrine of Naggarond, and poured a goblet of his divine blood into the braziers where the Witch Elves burnt the hearts of their sacrifices.[1k]. With the Blighted Isle now in High Elf hands, Caledor set sail to return to Lothern. Ulthuan's rivers ran red with blood as wanton slaughter engulfed the isle. As winter abated, more troops were ferried across the Inner Sea from the eastern realms and the Dark Elves were soon outnumbered. After the Battle of Maledor, with the jeers of the victorious Elves loyal to the Phoenix Throne -- increasingly called "High Elves" -- still burning in his memory, Malekith's patience utterly snapped. Black Ark; Sea Dragon; Black Ark Corsairs; Dark Elf Manticore Lord; Doomreaver; Black Ark Fleetmasters; Fellheart; ... Warhammer â¦ Fighting for their ancestral lands, the Naggarothi were hate-filled and vicious, and Caledor's advance swiftly stalled. Left empty, mighty Anlec was destroyed by Tethlis' army; razed from existence by blade, fire and magic. Thus ended the reign of the Phoenix King Caledor I, but his death did not end the war. Within a decade, the High Elves came again, launching attacks from the Annulii Gates to strike into the heart of the Shadowlands.[1k]. Also, some parts of the lore have implied they kidnap High Elf children and babies to raise as Dark Elves. [2d], Of these, Khaine is the most well known, being a god of murder and war, but there are others such as Erelth Khial who rules the Underworld, Atharti, a goddess of pleasure and indulgence, and Hekarti the goddess of Dark Magic. Seeing the constant stream of politicking, disgrace, betrayal and assassination, they confuse an attack upon the person holding a particular position with an attack upon the position itself. Over the two hundred and fifty years since his ascension to the Phoenix Throne, Tethlis had waged war upon his dark cousins, and now the army of the High Elves was ready for the final push. So Games Workshop decided to end the canon stalemate that the Dark Elves and High Elves have enjoyed for the last fifteen or so years by pressing the big red button and activating complete destruction on the Warhammer world. To fail was to invite ruin so the warriors of Nagarythe fought with unmatched zeal -- better to fall fighting than to lose and face the wrath of Morathi's cultists. Alternatively they will gruesomely sacrifice them to Khaine. Dark however emerges as the clear winner. Unbeknownst to the other kingdoms of Ulthuan, Nagarythe's armies marched, now bolstered by the depraved cultists and practitioners of Dark Magic they had once opposed. Besieged, the desperate defenders held out, praying to the gods for salvation. They sent word to sympathisers and agents in Saphery, a realm renowned for its mages. The Hung invade the kingdom of the Dark Elves. Purple lightning leapt from Malekith's fingertips and cut down scores of Elves while Sulekh belched forth clouds of noxious gas. At one eastern capital, mystics called up strange illusions and beastly apparitions to assail the Dark Elves as they stormed the towers protecting the city. Yet for all the power of Chaos unleashed by the sorcerers, they could not prevail and were forced to flee Saphery and seek refuge in Nagarythe and the kingdoms of Ulthuan its armies now occupied.[1k]. They instead made landfall on the coast of the Sea of Malice many miles south of Naggarond, and here they built a new city for themselves. Then word arrived from Druchii ships that had travelled further east, to the forests and mountains of the eastern Elven colonies where Malekith had once fought alongside the Dwarfs. Panic swept through Ulthuan as these crimes grew in boldness and horror, until Aethis finally acted.[1k]. When news reached Malekith of this development, he scorned these new troops, dubbing them cowardly bakers and farmers. The fumes from their pyres swathed the city of the Witch King, and bloodthirsty mobs ran rampant through the streets, killing and maiming in mindless bursts of violence. Titanic magical duels tore the lands of Saphery apart as sorcerer fought mage. Yet with his dying breath, the last Assassin sent forth a Daemonic familiar to bring word to the Witch King of the Everqueen's location. At its touch, the shimmering sphere broke the magical aura binding N'kari to the world of mortals, casting it back into the Realms of Chaos. In addition to this, there are also various hints at a new faction of aelves (thought to be called Umbraneth after an accidental mention on Warhammer Community) lead by Malerion (the AoS rename of Malekith), which will likely be to Dark Elves what Lumineth Realm-Lords were to High Elves. [1c], To the Wood Elves, it has made them isolationist, deniers of the wider world who blindly hope that, so long as their realm knows order, no danger can threaten it. The raiders' tales of cities paved with gold and immense, prehistoric ziggurats filled with riches beyond counting lured more and more Dark Elves into the rotting jungles and raids into Lustria now take place every few years. This is encapsulated in the Elven belief of yenlui, or "balance;" a philosophy that dictates that there must be harmony between the light and dark natures of the Elven spirit. The Greater Daemon descended upon Tyrion and Alarielle in the last twilight hours of the night. Thousands of years ago, the Elves were a unified race living in the island kingdom of Ulthuan. It helped also that Malekith's emissaries were steeped in the most sinful and hidden of desires, and they used this knowledge to unlock that would otherwise have been fixed against them. 5 Mounted Dark Elves - Cold Ones, Painted Warhammer Fantasy Battle Metal, 80s. The shifting ice had ruptured an ancient vault, and within it Malekith found an artefact older even than the Elves. With her dark oracles to aid her, the paths of the future were laid out before Morathi like an insane map, and with this knowledge she charted the course of destiny for her son. Seeing that the strength of Ulthuan could not prevail against the might of Naggaroth, Teclis sought to destroy the Witch King. He offered them a choice. It was Morathi who turned consternation into opportunity. The big win over Dark in this regard is that the over-channeled version has an area effect which can be very useful in the blob. He promised rule of the south coast of the Sea of Malice to the rulers of Hag Graef. For his part, Malekith knew his armies were broken, their fighting spirit spent upon a thousand fields of battle, and the Dark Elves returned to Naggaroth to rebuild their strength.[1k]. The Sorceresses that had survived were brought before Malekith; he had them thrown into chains and sent to the sacrificial altars for their failure to foretell the Chaos attack.[1k]. Many of these Elves sought to escape the bitter grief that the Chaos incursion had left within their lives. In him, the mightiest warrior spirit was kindled, and it was Aenarion who would rally the Elves and teach them the ways of war. As well as campaigning across the lands that would eventually become the Empire, Bretonnia and the Badlands, Malekith travelled even further abroad. Because of a prophecy which states that Malekith will be killed by a Sorcerer, males have been forbidden to practicing magic. While the Marauders were left to burn and plunder as they saw fit, the vanguard of the Dark Elves speared into the woodland realm of Averlorn -- the home of the Everqueen of Ulthuan. Kaledor Maglen, famed lord of the Shades and greatest explorer of the Underworld, had discovered a passage to the west, into the Boiling Sea. Below them are the rulers of the cities, the Drachau, aided by the Vaulkhar, commanders of the city-armies. In the new world across the oceans, where slaving fleets terrorised tribes of primitive humans, the influence of Ulthuan was growing ever stronger. In the confusion and anarchy of the following centuries, the Dark Elves found rich pickings. The results of these clandestine attacks proved to be far greater than Malekith had ever hoped. The dark forests to the south and east, and the forbidding mountains to the west, held many fell beasts and hundreds of Naggarothi were devoured in the night as they made camps in the wilderness.[1k]. This time the cults were insidious and subtle, daring none of the flamboyant rituals that had exposed them in the time of Bel Shanaar. When Malekith discovered that his mother was the chief architect of the cults, he renounced her and ordered that she be imprisoned upon her capture, along with thousands of her misguided disciples. His personal joy was acts of sabotage, always carried out in such a way that they left evidence pointing to an innocent Elf, who would then be executed for the treacherous acts. [1k], For all his intent on rebuilding the power of the Dark Elves, Malekith never turned his gaze from the ultimate prize: Ulthuan. The Dark Elves (or Druchii in Druhir) of Naggaroth are one of the major races/civilizations of Warhammer Fantasy and the dark kin of the High Elves. Druchii believe that the strong should rule over the weak. Black Ark Corsairs Cities Sigmar Anvilgard Warhammer Age Dark Elves Elf â¦ Nobody was above Malekith's scrutiny, from the lowest Elven farmer to the most vaunted prince. Calls for Malekith to lead his people back to Ulthuan became louder and louder, but the Witch King demanded patience from his subjects. In the centre of Har Ganeth Hellebron raised up a great temple to Khaine, reached by an iron stairway of a thousand and one steps. Ranks of spearmen advance remorselessly across the field, a shadow of death that consumes all who stand in its path. Yet a glimmer of hope remained for the High Elves, despite the darkness that had engulfed their lands. While the cities of the Dark Elves grew in Naggaroth, their exploits further afield also increased. Behind Malekith, those Druchii nobles who had proven their dedication advanced. She sent expeditions into the Realm of Chaos to the north, tasking them to seek out artefacts of the Dark Gods and to observe the ever-changing miasma of Chaos energy. Princes caught in the grip of the cults began to mutter that Bel Shanaar was weak, and an usurper of the Phoenix Throne.[1k]. When the Naggarothi assassins struck, Imrik was alone and vulnerable. The danger of invasion from the north vexed Malekith greatly, as he could not launch an invasion of Ulthuan while the borders of Naggaroth were unsafe. The Dark Elves, not so unlike their High Elven brethren, possess a cold if not glamorous beauty which only helps to hide the corruption and vileness which lurks beneath their skin. Warhammer Age of Sigmar Games Workshop Ltd 017 MASTER WITH BATTLE STANDARD MELEE WEAPONS Range Attacks To Hit To Wound Rend Damage Barbed Blade 1" 4 3+ - 1 Dark Steedâs Vicious Bite 1" 2 4+ 5+ - 1 DESCRIPTION A Master with Battle Standard is a single model. All in all the Dark Elves don't really exist any more. The short, ugly Dwarfs and his effete kin on Ulthuan would never be able to unite against him.[1k]. As anarchy reigned, the Naggarothi moved swiftly, seizing many of the vital passes across the Annulii Mountains, separating the Inner Kingdoms of Ulthuan from the Outer Kingdoms. His heart burned with the dark fires of battle and his prowess with blade, spear and bow remain unmatched to this day. An expedition led by Eltharion of Tor Yvresse attacked Naggarond itself -- with stolen clothes Eltharion and a small group of warriors snuck into the Witch King's capital and opened one of the gates for Eltharion's army to enter. If Tethlis attempted to draw the Sword of Khaine, they would strike at once, cursed to sell their lives to prevent the Phoenix King from drawing the Murderer of Gods.[1k]. His rule is absolute, for he is the very embodiment of all the Druchii and so long as he lives, the High Elves will never know true peace. Malekith invited half a dozen of the most powerful nobles of Hag Graef to a feast. Dark Elves are the rebellious kin of the High Elves. When he was discovered, Hotek fled and sought sanctuary within Nagarythe. Naggaroth will rise, Ulthuan will fall, and a vengeance thousands of years in the making will finally see its bloody conclusion. Kidnappings and murders blighted the cities of Ulthuan. In the campaign, they have three playable subfactions. Upon the site of Aenarion's throne room, Malekith raised his flag in proclamation to Ulthuan that Aenarion's true heir had returned. Malekith took the Circlet of Iron and resolved to unravel its secrets.
