It was assumed that official GW events would use the End Times rules though that was barely the case, as a new setting and game soon replaced it. Non-official events shrugged and kept using the basic rules for the most part - the End Times books were expensive and unwieldy, and, if you ask some people , filled with issues and inconsistencies.
Which, as you probably know, never happened. If you got beaten over the head with a mallet and suddenly got the idea to play End Times nowadays Well good luck at least. Most people have moved on to either Age of Sigmar or to one of the several fanmade Warhammer Fantasy rulesets, with none of them wishing to look back to these rules.
The Fluff[ edit ] End Times fluff was thought to be the last that "Ward Save" had ever written for Games Workshop prior to his departure, though he has since returned. In particular the bulk of End Times: Khaine was written by him, using the 8th Edition buildup in the new trinity of Elf Army Books he wrote. As one would expect, Skub has been flying non-stop. Also, going by White Dwarf, Phil had a hand in the End Times: Nagash book, arguably the best received and least skubtastic of the set.
Note that there are many contradictions between the novels and the core events in the army books.
The Black Library books were meant to cover another side or other plots from the army book, and thus it's difficult to know what is canon and what is not; for example, the writer of the Khaine novel assumed that Eldyra had become a Vampire and had Mannfred refer to her as his kin, when in actuality she had become the avatar of Ereth Khial, the Elf goddess of death. Gav Thorpe said in interviews that the Black Library writers are given bare bones summary of the events of the army book and expected to make up the rest.
When further pressed about why Elves, a race on the verge of extinction, can lose what amounts to millions of lives while still having a sizable army he revealed that Games Workshop lore does not utilize number logic explaining the constant "all the Dark Elves deplete their forces against the High Elves but are ready to attack again one generation later at full strength" lore ; there is as many casualties as the story needs to sound impressive, and do not reflect any concrete lore about population.
Beastmen [ edit ] Malagor had been told by the Gods to stop Nagash's ascension. He did an admirable job of trolling Skeletor's flunkies to prevent his resurrection but ultimately failed obviously.
This was probably due to the vast power difference between the Undead and Beastmen lists, but he still deserves credit for trying. The Beastmen are revealed to have overrun most of Athel Loren to the point that most of the forest died and rotted, while the Tree of Life is revealed to be full of maggots. Taurox the Brass Bull gets put down like a rabid animal by Huntsmarshal Markus Wulfhart after he puts a shot square in Taurox's still-fleshy throat. During the final battle, the Beastmen chase Martak into the Empire Menagerie, then get roasted by the Imperial Dragon like the redshirts they are After Ulthuan sinks and Malekith moves his court there more on that below , the united Elf race mostly the Dark Elves, bored because Elf on Elf violence is prohibited purge Athel Loren of most of the Beastmen while Alarielle rezzes the forest mostly as it was before.
So basically Beastmen have accomplished nothing but killing nameless mooks, causing Beastmen players to once again consider making like their army and burning Games Workshop stores to the ground after smearing the walls with shit-drawings in the likeness of Sagittarius.
Kharzak is killed by Boris Todbringer in the battle for Middenheim, before Boris is torn apart by other Beastmen. So they achieved at least one thing, but that's the equivalent of a drop in the ocean. According to the epilogue many champions of Chaos were uplifted to Daemonhood. This may include Beastmen, but it is stated no one made any records of those final days.
The Lady of the Lake was revealed to have been Lileath all along. Thanks to the machinations of Nagash's servants, a large chunk of the Bretonnian nobility had gone the way of Sylvanian nobility, with vampirism spreading in the ranks and Zombies wandering the countryside in packs. Mallobaude, bastard son of the king, aka "Not-Mordred" led Bretonnia into a clusterfuck civil war.
He was supported by Arkhan the Black while the dukes of Carcassonne, Lyonesse, and Artois rose up in his support. King Louen Leoncoeur fought Mallobaude in battle, and it was initially believed he was killed. He then conquered every Bretonnian city he attacked and killed every opponent who he fought without so much as a scratch. Le Breton is functionally immortal, having become the demigod servant of the Lady. He has retaken his place as True God King of Bretonnia, and in an uncharacteristic display of things going well for Bretonnia he killed Mallobaude, beat most of the undead out of his nation, and prepared to declare Errantry War against the enemies of Bretonnia.
Half the peasant population of Bretonnia was wiped out by the war and an ensuing plague, causing Nurgle to become more powerful. Morgiana le Fay, the Fay Enchantress and daughter of the Lady, was led to a sacrificial altar and bled out over a cauldron alongside Aliathra and Volkmar to summon Nagash's spirit.
Louen Leoncoeur was informed by the Lady that the Germans are the key to the safety of the world, so he dutifully led a fuckhuge army of Bretonnian Knights Errant including his own personal RAF of Pegasus Knights through Athel Loren slaughtering more Beastmen along the way and paving a way for the newly united Elves to settle and against the forces of Chaos, saving the Empire for now.
Louen himself died in the temple of Shallya at the hands of Festus the Leechlord , after killing Ku'Gath Plaguefather. Louen died on Shallya's altar, and ascended to godhood after death to become another of the Lady's consorts.
Lady Lileath reveals that in the cycle of rebirth, she has planned for her daughter with Araloth to become a mother goddess in the new world, as well as Araloth himself to become the next Asuryan , while the souls of every great Bretonnian who drank from her chalice and her Damsels dwell there to become the next human Pantheon.
A giant knight with an unfamiliar accent assists Araloth in establishing the new world and saving Shallya from Nurgle. This is most likely Kaldor Draigo but could possibly a Bretonnian raised Ogre Firebelly with a speech impedime-aw fuck it, it's Draigo. More or less confirmed in a later Age of Sigmar book to be a Stormcast Eternal.
After all the Elves moved in next door, the Dark Elf portion began raiding Bretonnia since they aren't allowed to murderrapetorture the High Elves anymore. Though since Orion is no longer raiding Bretonnia due to now being dead this works out to about even. With the release of End Times: Thanquol, Bretonnia is stated to has mostly succumbed to the Skavenblight. The knights that participated in the battle of Altdorf are in Averheim with Karl Franz, but leave Athel Loren and the Council after learning the truth about Lileath.
Duke Jerrod reveals to Be'lakor the existence of her backup world, possibly ending all remaining hope for the future of the setting. Vlad tells Jerrod as he leaves that Gilles and Abhorash are leading the last of the loyal Blood Knights and grail knights in a last stand. The Red Duke and a couple of von Carstein underlings are sent with the Bretonnian knights to aid them in whatever way they can.
Of course, we get no mention of the absolute ass kicking that Gilles and Abhorash teaming up would deliver. Chaos Dwarves [ edit ] Mentioned in one sentence on page 69 of Glottkin. The Craterblades of Talabheim apparently fucked up some K'daii and a Sorcerer Prophet awhile back earning them some street cred.
As a result, we know they're at least still canon as having ever existed at all. They turn portions of it into a fortress that allows them to raid into Cathay without any resistance.
They conquer most of the northern provinces before the dragon emperor starts pushing them back. The Fortress at the bastion is destroyed by Grimgor and the hobgoblins and the chaos held territories are taken over by orcs. Grimgor sacked the Dark Lands and most of the Chaos Dwarfs holdings, as revenge for his time as a slave under their cruel lash. He and the ogres free most of the slaves, topple the cities, and win over the loyalty of the dark land tribes. Grimgor, Golgfag and an army of Grimgor's trusted advisers cast down the statue of Hashut and raze Zhar-Naggrund to the ground, squatting the Chaos Dwarfs.
Hashut finally meets his match when he faces both Gork and Mork at the same time. He is defeated before the final battle, stripping the sorcerers of their power.
When Chaos destroys the world, it is mentioned that many champions of Chaos were uplifted to Daemonhood. This may include some Chaos Dwarfs, however, consider most of them have been wiped out by the greenskins.
Daemons of Chaos [ edit ] The Changeling takes the form of one of Balthazar Gelt's apprentices and gives him the means to cage Sylvania. This locks Volkmar in where Mannfred proceeds to capture him, but it does delay Mannfred's plans to bring back Nagash until Arkhan's intervention.
Khorne sent Valkia to lead an army of Warriors of Chaos to invade Naggaroth. Skarbrand led a vast army of Daemons to Naggaroth and intercepted Malekith on a trip to see his Mother, he was then killed by Malekith when their forces met and his army was defeated. Nurgle , whose power waxes to become the strongest Chaos God and wanes to the weakest depending on the state of the mortal world, is supercharged right now thanks to the happenings mainly all the rotting zombies and plague victims about.
His greatest plagues and secretions are delivered to mortal servants, who use them to wipe out most of the Empire. Valkia was defeated, and the Dark Elves partially took everything of value then salted the Earth so the Hung would end up taking nothing for their efforts, then they fled to Athel Loren.
Naggaroth is now lifeless and occupied only by Chaos marauders picking over ruins.
Tzeentch has been severely weakened after the Elves undid the Vortex, which shoots magic back into the Warp. The eight Winds of Magic have been bound to mortals with the exception of most of Death, which is bound to Sylvania. Slaanesh sent N'kari and his armies to take Ulthuan. With so many Elves killing each other Slaanesh received a rich banquet. But with the sinking of Ulthuan and the drowning of a HUGE chunk of the Elf race, as well as the loss of all the souls of the High Elves bound to Waystones , Slaanesh received more souls at once than he could consume and Eldyra, empowered by the Lore of Death, traveled to the new world with the souls left on Slaanesh's plate where she established an afterlife to keep the next world safe from Slaanesh's vore fetish.
Chaos Gods of Order are doing all of jack and shit, with Jack having left town. Be'lakor said in the Archaon novel that they never existed, but it's anyone's guess as to whether or not he's lying. Ku'gath Plaguefather plays an integral role in weakening Altdorf by helping Festus brew the plague that will allow Nurgle's Garden to spill right into the center of Altdorf. He is defeated by Leoun Leoncoeur during the Battle of Altdorf. Epidimeus shows up to Talabheim with one of the super plagues that Archaon gave him, causing a massive storm of pus and jizz it's described as milky white Eeeewwwwww to flood the city and force everyone out.
Most of the Talabheim army escapes to Altdorf, but Talabheim falls to the Plaguebearers. Epidimeus takes a cannonball to the chest during the Battle of Altdorf and dies.
Nurgle infects Taal with a plague that cripples him, but with the onset of winter, Shallya, the Lady of the Lake and Ulfric are able to purge the god of nature of Nurgle's plagues.
The largest force of Daemons ever to appear in the material plane, surpassing even the fall of the Warp Gates , appeared in the Chaos Wastes. Pledged entirely to Archaon rather than any of the Chaos Gods or their various champions , began their march at the end of Glottkin. Kairos Fateweaver trolled Archaon with the hint that he will be inconvenienced or killed somehow by someone who is "not a mortal man", and is then sent to kill Valten.
He fails and Archaon cuts his heads off and uses his blood to summon Ka'bandha. The Chaos Gods send a council of their Champions to assist Archaon. Slaanesh, very fond of the Warhammer World and the wonderful delights all of the Elf factions gave him particularly, did not want the End Times to occur and thus sent his least-effective champion to aid him.
Yes, you read that right. Slaanesh, the Chaos God of torture and excess, was the voice of reason and moderation. Dechala was sent to run amok in the final days. She taunted Malekith with the fate of his mother by bringing him her staff. Be'lakor is captured in Athel Loren. His gambit fails when he is bound to the Chaos-repelling ruby in Alarielle's tiara, which is stated to be capable of surviving the End Times although it's unknown if he manages to escape after that.
A third Warp Gate is opened in Middenheim, destabilizing the world and drawing it into the Warp. The Chaos Gods themselves set foot on the world and destroy it to the last tree until boredom overtakes them and they leave to continue the Great Game in other realities.
Daemons being daemons, they don't really die as much as are banished, we may assume they will be rewarded or punished by the gods accordingly to how well they managed to get their part done. The giggling idiots themselves. Thorgrim, the bro-tier High King of the Dwarfs, says they should help the world, but most of the other Dwarf lords dismiss his ideas and bicker over their plans.
Thorek Ironbrow an hero-ed by overcharging his anvil as a nuke to be fair, the anvil was already cracked and so blowing up was the only thing it could do, and he was already fatally wounded. The result was massive destruction of the Undead of Nagash, forcing them out of the Dwarf Holds.
However Neferata still escaped with a relic snack for Naggy. Thorek also opened Valaya's Gate, doing so is supposed to lead them to another golden age but Nagash went through instead and drained the sleeping Valaya of her stored up magic. Presumably the gate's still open and she isn't dead since it never specifically says Nagash ate her, just her magic, and it also says he only reached divinity when he ate Usirian and presumably there's still another Dwarf God just inside of it. Ungrim Ironfist has the Wind of Fire bound to him and becomes the incarnate of fire.
Thorgrim becomes the incarnate of Metal. If you wonder why they are not turned to stone In turn, Queek is killed by Thorgrim Grudgebearer himself via necksnap. The victory is short lived, however. Thorgrim loses the lore of Metal and falls to the assassins blade due to one of the dumbest fucking mistakes when none other than Deathmaster Snikch slays the High King of the Dwarfs and removes his head for a trophy. The survivors flee to the fortress of the Slayers under the only remaining king, Ungrim.
Gotrek gives Be'lakor a nasty chopping, and takes Grimnir's place within the Warp fighting Chaos and is immediately faced with a fuckhuge Daemon army to kill by himself. Felix is teleported to the Slayer Fortress alone, and may have suffocated. Ungrim and his army are in Averheim with Karl Franz and pretty much whats left of the Empire during the final days.
The city is hard pressed by the army of Vilitch, but between Karl Franz and Ungrim, so much ass is kicked that the forces of Destruction can't get shit done. Grombrindal bails his boi Malekith out of some shit by throwing an axe and saving his life, then leads the vengeful ghosts of every Dwarf who ever lived out to make a last stand and avenge all Grudges alongside their remaining living kin before the end of everything.
In the battle, he stands on top of a shield, held up by Gotrek and Josef Bugman just like the beloved anniversary model.
The populace of Har Ganeth were excited as fuck. Valkia is defeated but it is unclear whether she is dead. Malekith kills Skarbrand Drycha sells the Fey Enchantress out to Mannfred, who then attempts to kill her and fails. Alarielle travels to Athel Loren, and in exchange for attempting to heal Ariel who was injured during the Bretonnian civil war and the Oak of Ages which is rotting and full of maggots, caused by Lileath unbeknownst to anyone else a Wood Elf force led by Araloth is dispatched to help save Aliathra.
Finubar the Seafarer locks himself in a tower to figure shit out, and came to the revelation that he and all the phoenix Kings are cursed by Asuryan for being impostors who cheated their way through the flames via magical protection. Malekith projects his spirit form into Finubar's observatory and taunts him about everything that has come to pass. He then summons a Bloodletter and locks Finubar in the room, and Finubar lets the Bloodletter kill him as he sees suicide as the only option.
Eltharion the Grim and Araloth fail to save Aliathra. Araloth escapes, Eltharion goes out like the grim hero he was by being aged to dust by Arkhan the Black. Aliathra is revealed to be Tyrion's daughter, not Finubar's.
She's used as the last sacrifice to resurrect Nagash, who is then afflicted with the Curse of Aenarion. Thanks to her behavior and composure during the ordeal however, Arkhan now thinks mortal Elves may be more badass than all his asshole coworkers except Nef.
After several of the Northern Watchtowers, Karond Kar, Clar Karond, and Har Ganeth [Har Garneth is still populated, but the blood mad populace don't bother to repair the damage and keep slaughtering chaos warriors] have been destroyed the Druchii take everything of value from Naggaroth leaving the slaves to die , destroy the remaining cities, salt the earth to leave no plunder for the forces of Chaos, and head to Ulthuan.
Malekith turns his back on his mother, leaving her in her tower at Ghrond to pine after her long lost love Aenarion a retcon, as in original fluff she was only manipulating him in isolation awaiting the hordes of Chaos to come for her.
End Times retcons the Cult of Pleasure to have never been Slaaneshi, but instead simply behaved Slaaneshi and worshiped Atharti instead. An army of Slaaneshi Daemons led by N'kari invade from the Annuli. Tyrion is still an emo brooding prick.
But now he's an emo brooding prick that not only sired an illegitimate heir to Everqueen, but he also failed to rescue his daughter. Though pissed over Tyrion's literal fuck-up, Teclis arranges for him to lead the the High Elf armies in Finubar's absence.
Teclis is revealed to be manipulating everyone like a mortal Be'lakor, all on the vague instructions left by the only remaining living god Lileath. Ariel, revealed to be the avatar of Isha herself, is revealed to be dying while Isha herself lies in a state of dementia. Lileath has one last conversation with her before Alarielle absorbs the remainder of Isha into herself, the personality of the goddess being entirely lost in the process.
The Wood Elves swear loyalty to Alarielle. Lileath confirms that the Warhammer World gods are NOT aspects of Chaos as Vetok originally wrote ages ago, but in fact are the last survivors of the last universe. Warhammer Fantasy is in a permanent cycle of death and rebirth, as each time Chaos destroys one world survivors from the last escape and form a new one as the new reigning gods. Malekith and Teclis reveal that Malekith was the chosen Eternity King of Asuryan , destined to take the throne after his father.
By allowing a vote for king he defied Asuryan's will, and the corruption of the Chaos Gods made them not choose the half-brother of the queen to sire her heir seriously not making this shit up.
Malekith was supposed to kill Bel-Shanaar and test himself in the Pyre. But he was unable to withstand the pain, and failed Asuryan's test. Asuryan cursed every Phoenix King a position not intended to have ever existed with madness, and used what little remained of his strength to undo each of them and bring their achievements to woe. He then awaited the true chosen king to return to Ulthuan and test himself again. Imrik consults the spirit of Caledor the Dragontamer, who verifies Malekith's story.
The majority of the High Elves say 'Oh, that's alright then' and don't ask further questions. Caledor pledges its loyalty to Malekith, having set itself aside as neutral after Finubar died and Tyrion dissed Imrik.
Malekith walks through the Pyre of Asuryan a second time. The last of Asuryan's strength enters him. The Shrine of Asuryan sinks beneath the waves, Asuryan dies forever, and Malekith awakens a demigod.
Tullaris accepts death at Tyrion's hands, being told by Khaine that his death would set Tyrion down the path to draw the Widowmaker. Alarielle returns to Ulthuan via the magical "world root" transportation system of the Wood Elves and pledges her loyalty to Malekith as the one true king, and arranges a wedding between the two guess she forgave him for the whole 'I crashed your wedding and sent a Keeper of Secrets to rape you' thing.
Tyrion, in a rage, draws the Widowmaker and becomes the avatar of Khaine. The former is joined by the former loyal servants of the Phoenix King, the latter by the Cult of Khaine.
Morathi leaves her tower in disguise and betrays Malekith to fight alongside Tyrion who in her madness she really does think is Aenarion reborn as his bride. Morathi is revealed to be the avatar of the goddess Hekarti.
Aislinn's survival tendencies are revealed to be because he is the avatar of Mathlann.
Aislinn, realizing his mistake in allegiance, later wreaks Tyrion's fleet by summoning a tidal wave on the moment of his death. Nagarythe stays neutral, and becomes a site for refugees.
Alith Anar kills any from any side who attempt to march through, including Kouran who is stabbed through the chest after a short and very one-sided fight.
Korhil leads the armies of Tyrion. As the two sides battle, most of western Ulthuan remains in Malekith's hands while eastern Ulthuan belongs to Tyrion. Saphery is destroyed, Yvresse becomes wholly depopulated without Eltharion to defend it.
Imrik damages Tyrion's armor, but is defeated after suffering non-fatal injuries. Tyrion marches against Avelorn, burning it to the ground. Morathi and Alarielle duel while Tyrion fights Orion.
Alarielle gets tired of being called a tree-hugging sissy and shows everyone up by painfully turning the invading elves into trees. Korhil attempts to steal the Widowmaker from Tyrion with the help of a Sorceress and Malus Darkblade in order to get it to Hellebron. Korhil and the White Lions, who have resisted the Curse of the Widowmaker in the past, travel to meet up with the Khainite host.
Korhil kills an Elvish Prince who happens to be the Sorceress' brother. Before the ritual can be completed, Morathi hunts down Korhil and defeats Hellebron, bringing Korhil back to Tyrion.
For a full night Tyrion tortures him with his bare hands, gouging out his eyes and smashing his legs into splinters. After much torment, Korhil is beheaded by the brother of the Prince he killed, his own axe used to cut his head from his shoulders messily, at Morathi's request.
Malus's luck finally runs out as with the increase in the power of Chaos T'zarkan grew stronger, eventually destroying Malus's soul, killing Spite and almost immediately fighting and getting killed by Tyrion. Eltharion's spirit returns to grant his trademark necklace and sword to his niece and nephew.
Malekith and Tyrion finally enter into a duel to the death on the Isle of the Dead while the spirits of dead Elven heroes battle around them on behalf of one or the other of the fighters including Eltharion, whose spirit sides against Tyrion, Korhil who gets revenge, and the Phoenix Kings; their skeletons fight for Tyrion but their spirits fight for Malekith and are only granted reprieve from their damnation if they fight for him.
Tyrion defeats Malekith, but before he's able to deal the final blow Alith Anar pulls a Grimgor and shoots him in the back through the hole that Imrik created like he's fucking Smaug. Alith Anar then shoots Malekith with a second arrow, landing next to his heart. Alith Anar claims if Malekith does not rule justly, the next arrow would go through. As a Nagarythe arrow, thorns sprout from it and cause immense pain to his Dark Elf body. In the Black Library novel Alarielle completely removes it, in the army book she only removes the threat to his life it causes and he must live with the excruciating pain which is worse than his original burns Though the latter may be the case of an Unreliable Narrator.
Morathi's madness reaches full and she attempts to reason with Slaanesh as an equal and he drags her into his realm. As 8th edition retconned Morathi from being his high priestess to being a worshiper of an Elf god who was himself in every way but name, he's unlikely to be merciful.
The Wind of Light is bound to Teclis's magic staff, he intended to bind the Wind of Fire to Malekith but since it had escaped earlier he only able to bind Shadow to him. Alarielle is made the embodiment of the Wind of Life, the other Winds escape. The wind of fire binds itself the the dwarf slayer king Ungrim Ironfist. Without the Vortex keeping it afloat, Ulthuan sinks many Elves refuse and stay to perish or don't make it to the World Roots time.
Malekith sets up court in Athel Loren and is crowned "Eternity King". Princes constantly grumble and plot against him, and only because it would cost him the loyalty of Imrik does he stay his hand from most. Any he DOES decide to kill, he wipes out their entire family as is his way.
The three races of Elves are forbidden from fighting each other. To satiate their murder-lust which is lessened since most of the Khainites are now dead or were disappeared shortly after Malekith took the throne the Dark Elves have taken to raiding Bretonnia. We are not going to elaborate on how skubby this sounds considering Elves are at least supposed to act remotely decent as somehow Dark Elves can enslave, murder and save the world in the name of a magical king.
All three races of Elves all but wipe out Beastmen in Athel Loren, mostly at the direction of the Sisters of Twilight. After Tyrion slays Malus Darkblade at the battle of Reaver's Mark, and Nagash is reborn, Lileath sends Araloth and Kalara on a dangerous journey; deep into the Realm of Chaos, to seek out Nurgle 's mansion and rescue Shallya who says she is as vital to the survival of humanity as Isha is to the Elves.
During their travels, they form an alliance with a somewhat crazed human scholar who has evidently been given free reign to roam the Realms of Chaos unmolested - possibly Richter Kless , author of the Liber Chaotica. With his assistance, Araloth makes a brief foray into the Crystal Maze of Tzeentch and rescues an imprisoned sorcerer, who lends his sorcerous powers to their journey. Their group completes itself with the addition of a strangely accented giant-statured human, a knight in brilliant silver armor who can shoot blue fire from one of his hands and cannot be harmed by the forces of Chaos - this may be Kaldor Draigo.
Together, they finally reach Nurgle's mansion, where the knight sacrifices himself by shouting for all to hear that "Nurgle is the paragon of cleanliness! There, they rescue Shallya, but only with a sacrifice; Kalara has to remain behind and serve as the Poxfulcrum, the daemon tester of Nurgle's plagues, or else Nurgle will realize that the goddess has been stolen from him.
As the quartet leave, the sorcerer betrays Araloth, only to be swallowed whole by a beast of Nurgle that Araloth took pity on during their initial travels. The scholar deceives the daemonic beast into leaving without accidentally killing "its friend Araloth", bids the Wood Elf and the weakened deity adieu, then happily wanders off into the Realms of Chaos again, even as Araloth returns to Lileath's side.
So Alice in Wonderland, Warhammer style. Araloth then learns from Lileath that the world is doomed and she has other plans for him; to travel through a portal to a world untouched by Chaos, where he and their daughter together will eventually coax life into being again as part of the eternal cycle. Though initially outraged and seeing this as a betrayal, Araloth's familial loyalty wins out and he steps through, to be the Asuryan of that world. They will be accompanied by the Bretonnians that Lileath uplifted in her time as the Lady.
From the fall of the Vortex, Slaanesh received more souls than he could take and Eldyra who had become a Vampire received some essence of Death making her a candidate to be the new Elf god of the afterlife in the next world. Then will the World know that the last war has begun The first part of Archaon's dark quest was to go to the Altar of True Darkness in Naggaroth and offer himself to the gods to gain their favour and recognition.
He gathered a small band of Chaos Warriors he called the Swords of Chaos and battled his way to a citadel so tall it appeared to pierce Morrslieb itself. Archaon was unafraid, and marched off alone with his steed into the darkness. As he continued to march, an untold number of creatures threw themselves upon the potential Everchosen. Within a matter of hours, he was able to slay hundreds of the misshapen monsters that had infested the mighty citadel, until finally his sword-arm turned numb and the ground grew slippery with the blood and gore of the fallen.
Rising up from the filth, Archaon reconsecrated the altar for the Gods of Chaos, offering up the hearts of the creatures that had crawled in and defiled it. When he emerged he bore the eternally burning Mark of Chaos on his forehead. After leaving Naggaroth on a stolen ship made of black metal and pulled by a massive sea-drake, Archaon took leadership of a seafaring war-band along the way to his destination.
They sailed to a mysterious land populated with savage half-humans. Neither sun nor moon had ever touched their pallid skin and after six days and six nights of battle after battle, the city of these creatures had been reduced to rubble. Archaon delved deep into their necropolis until he found the Tomb of Morkar and the armour he sought.
However, as Archaon reached out to take it, the spirit of Morkar animated the armour and attacked him. The vengeful spirit laid down a relentless flurry of blows until Archaon cursed it in the language of the Unberogen tribe.
At that time it lay in the lair of the Chaos Dragon Flamefang, who valued the Eye above all of its other treasures. Long did man and monster battle at the base of the Cliff of Beasts. Flamefang breathed fire and even swallowed Archaon whole, but the Armour of Morkar protected him from its acidic stomach. Archaon hacked his way out of the dragon's gullet with the ferocity of a Flesh Hound, until Flamefang's throat was hacked to shreds and it died of exhaustion and blood loss.
Archaon plucked the Eye of Sheerian from its place on the belly of the dragon and hung it around his neck as his rightful reward. Archaon battled his way past the daemons guarding Agrammon's palace and sneaked inside, hiding beneath a beast that was part man, part mammoth and part insect.
Inside was every beast imaginable, and some that were not. Archaon tracked Dorghar through the menagerie by its sulphurous stench. When he found it he vaulted on to its back. The Steed of the Apocalypse changed shape and burst into flames, but Archaon was able to break it like a wayward stallion and escape from the Realm of Chaos.
The warriors battling around the plateau saw the determination and destiny of Archaon, and he quickly gathered a huge horde of followers to wage war against the chimeras. From the top, Archaon looked down on the world, swearing that he would one day rule over all of it. Suddenly, what he had taken for a mountain behind him turned over in its sleep, causing a series of earthquakes in the lands below.
Prince Ograx the Great, the strongest of Archaon's companions, was able to lift up one of Krakanrok's talons high enough for Archaon to retrieve the daemonsword. However, the daemon bound inside began to shriek with deafening volume. With the blade's thirst quenched with royal blood, Archaon was able to sheath it and return from the plateau to the cheers of his followers, carrying his blade with him throughout all his future battles.
Forged before the dawn of man, the "Crown of Domination" once held the Eye of Sheerian, but had since been lost to history. Decades after finding the Slayer of Kings, Archaon still had no clue as to the whereabouts of this ancient battle-helm. Eventually Be'lakor revealed its location, planning to steal the crown after Archaon found it. Be'lakor led Archaon up the mountain, the Steed of the Apocalypse carrying him over the most difficult terrain.
Through the gateway was a labyrinth filled with dire beasts and vengeful daemons. Here Archaon was tested by each of the Chaos Gods to see if he was truly worthy to be the Everchosen. Nurgle sent deadly diseases that Archaon fought off with sheer willpower. Tzeentch created a labyrinth of crystal, but Archaon blindfolded himself and used instinct alone to navigate it. Slaanesh sent temptation after temptation, but Archaon resisted, never diverting from the path to the inner gates of the Shrine.
Suddenly, a mighty Bloodthirster of Khorne erupted from the flames and attacked the potential Everchosen. The Greater Daemon was strong, but Archaon drew strength from the Slayer of Kings and wrested the Bloodthirster's weapons away and strangled it with its own whip.
The hellfire died away, leaving Archaon gravely injured and standing in a simple shrine. Archaon took the crown and, with his wounds healing and frame swelling with power, he held it to the heavens. All that he needed now was a coronation. The daemon prince Be'lakor performed the ceremony that made Archaon the Lord of the End Times, and the Everchosen immediately began mustering the largest army ever seen by mortal kind.
