Kurald EmurlahnEdit

The Elder Warren of Kurald Emurlahn
Age of Sundering

The Elder Goddess, Kilmandaros is witness to a landscape where several dragons are lying dead. She strides across the realm to a rent. Behind her, the warren of Kurald Emurlahn is in its death throes, civil wars are still raging and the fragmenting of the realm has already begun. Scavengers keep arriving, tearing away pieces and destroying each other for the scraps. She strides through the rent.

The ruined K'Chain Che'Malle demesne
after the fall of Silchas Ruin

Gothos is travelling around the realm, affixing creatures in battle such as the Soletaken dragon and the two Elder gods close to him, with ice from Omtose Phellack, a ritual powerful enough to hold them frozen with ice until the day Omtose Phellack itself shatters. He muses about the mortality of Omtose Phellack, and now firmly believes that all of it is going to come to an end someday. He hears two Elder Gods arguing and descends a fissure to find Mael and Kilmandaros, with a mortally wounded and now immobile Scabandari Bloodeye cowering some distance away. Kilmandaros has injured him irrevocably and means to kill him for his betrayal of Silchas Ruin. Kilmandaros wants to kill him immediately, while Mael tries to explain that because of the ritual that has descended on this realm, death itself is denied. In return for both Mael and Kilmandaros owing him a debt, Gothos fashions a Finnest that will hold Scabandari's soul after his death. Having made this arrangement, Kilmandaros crushes Scabandari's skull, killing him. As repayment of the debt that the two just acknowledged, Gothos keeps the Finnest with himself, informing Mael that he intends to do something horrible to Scabandari's soul now residing there.

Kilmandaros returns to the rent to find Anomandaris Purake, and after some negotiations, they form an alliance to drive away the pretenders from Kurald Emurlahn. They use another path to enter the demesne, and set about cleaning the realm.

Awl'dan Edit

The Awl'dan, in the last days of King Diskanar

Preda Bivatt is commanding an expedition of two hundred soldiers of the Tattered Banner Army, along with thirty Bluerose cavalry. They reach a stretch of the coast that is extremely dangerous, and has sunk many a ship and city in the past. Preda Bivatt observes war canoes drawn up in rows on the beach, stacked high numbering around four to five-thousand. By the looks of it this happened at least some months back. Bivatt estimates that each craft would have held around a hundred occupants. The merchant who had been chosen to supply the expedition, Letur Anict, estimates that upwards of half a million people have landed on the Letherii coast and vanished.

The Awl’dan, following the Edur conquest

A lone rider walks his horse through the aftermath of a last stand made by some soldiers, whose bodies have been devoured by wolves. The rider's face is masked behind a crimson scale, and his horse is dying. He observes that among the dead are many women, and he cannot recognize these soldiers, even though he knows all about the Letherii soldiers and their types, and the soldiers of the neighboring kingdoms of Bolkando, Saphinand, and the others. These soldiers are pale skinned, and have the sigil of Wolf heads painted on the hauberks, one white furred and one eyed, while the other silver furred and black. He still does not recognize them. He observes one other thing, the wolves had fed not in a normal fashion, but had ripped the soldiers' chests and devoured their hearts.
