Eventually it was Aarbrok Lunare who stood triumphant, her fortitude proving equal to the Dwarves.

The Delosian Duel of 385 MA

Seventeen combatants rushed to meet the call of the great Delosian Duel, where they fought boldly in controlled one-on-one bouts in an attempt to be the last one standing.

On the first of Severin, 385 MA, The Underking took vengeance for His Sister's corruption of Enorian.

Breaking free of Her imprisonment, Chakrasul quickly ejected the invaders from Her Fortress, and Her Order now looks to repair the damage and losses suffered. What will the future hold for this new found conflict between the Underking and the Goddess of Corruption?

The Return of Corruption

With a violent clash within the Dun Fortress the Lady of Corruption, Chakrasul emerged once again to claim Her throne within Tiyen Indoron. Through manipulation of the citizens of Enorian, the Goddess of Corruption was able to deliver a blow to the Nazedha, while beginning the creation of Her army.
