The Northern Wastes

The Northern Wastes

In the closing days of the Imperial invasion of Eisenfell, the Empire forces had established a very secure beachhead at the northern peninsula of Eisenfell. The Empire had forced the Eisenfell troops back to their last line of retreat, a mere 5 weeks from the Eisenfell capital Arceous City. The Empire was meeting stoic resistance from the defenders of this last defensive line, nicknamed by the Eisenfell troops as “The Wall”, when it is supposed that the Imperial forces preformed some form of magical ritual that they couldn’t control. The defenders of the wall reported a deafening roar in the distance and flames that reached from the horizon to the clouds. A few days later the ragged remains of the Imperial army arrived at The Wall, no more than 200 of the original invading force lived through the explosion, and those that did were severally injured and half mad.
The survivors threw down their weapons and begged for sanctuary, however they were cut down by the Eisenfell defenders.
The next creatures to come against the wall were certainly not from the Empire. Two weeks after the explosion in the sky, the first abominations appeared.
The Eisenfell defenders were prepared for an army and made short work of the abominations, however they have been assaulting The Wall ever since, and their numbers are growing.
