The Rise of The Fallen
The Witch Lord
The Witch Lord is the infamous lich whose armies overran the Kelsenon Empire during The Hundred Years Chaos. Little is known of his (or her) life prior to The Sacking of Barak Tor, where an army of undead swarmed the venerable dwarven redoubt, slaughtered every inhabitant, then raised them as more soldiers. This act was the first battle in what became a long campaign against the Kelsenon Empire which eventually led to that nation’s collapse.
The Witch Lord is widely regarded as the most powerful necromancer in The Age of Mortals, thanks in large part to his (or her) possession of The Soulstone, the crystallized heart of The Dark Reaper. The Soulstone allowed the Witch Lord to raise and command unlimited numbers of skeletons, zombies, and other, fouler things.
