Warband Campaign -Opening Shots

The once peaceful island of Saint Kidspring  has descended into darkness as rumours of a long forgotten myth about a portal to the underworld have once again risen.

Vampire Count Bartholomew of Salemere has sallied out with an Undead Army into the Kagronian Forests where the Pool of Ebon Night has been found by a mighty Orc Chieftain, Knabadug.

Knabadug is unaware of the importance of his find, but its is well known that he sees any incursion into Kagronia as an act of war and he has mustered a mighty warband to face Bartholomew's undead horde.

Count Bartholomew has spread his forces thin, desperate to locate the Pool not knowing that Knabadug's force has set up an encampment right on top of the portal itself.

In the furious battle that evolves, Bartholomew throws himself into the midst of the combat and initially puts the Orc forces under huge pressure as Knabadug struggles to beat off the Counts repeated assaults. The undead horde struggle to coordinate their attacks and finding his command increasingly isolated Bartholomew is forced to withdraw having exerted himself to the point of needing to escape and regenerate before rethinking his strategy.

Days after the battle, Knabadug learns of the myth of the pool and sets about building battlements to protect the site. He sends out emissaries to Arkan Ironhorn the Taurian Chieftain of Woll Subterrane and Kusserg Caskbeard the Dwarven Clan Leader of the Jukalp Heights.

Mistrusting of Knabadug's intentions, neither Ironhorn or Kusserg agree to council, however a roaming Taurian Warparty under Aranarun Stormhoof from Clonells Timberland slip un-noticed into Kagronia to discuss a potential alliance with the Orcs.

Back in Salemere Castle, Count Batholomew has summoned a local Undead Warlord Firian Delacroix of the Order of Obsidian Mausoleum.
