Book Text:

At the height of victory it
happened, I know not what
fearful deities are
responsible, nor what ancient
magics were unleashed on
my people and our brethren
races of the Rallosian Empire.
I know only what I myself
witnessed at the accounts of
the other survivors of what is
spoken of only as The Curse.
The first signs I saw of the
curse were the angry shouts of
the ogre magi when the planar
portals closed. Then the
screams of those same magi
as fire simultaneously
ignited from within their
bodies leaving only memories
and ashes.
Shortly after witnessing the
demise of the magi stationed
at the Fortress of Krithgor a
battered legion unit arrived



at the fortress gates. The
soldiers brought word of
Murdunks dishonorable death,
accusing The Rathe of cursing
Murdunk to fall from a cliff
at the site of The Rathes
execution. They spoke of the
disappearances of many great
Ogre war leaders, including
Murdunks tactician and
strategist, Generals Tallon
and Vallon, and even the
Warlord Rallos Zek. This worn
unit of soldiers was relieved
of their previous duties by
our superiors and stationed at
the Fortress of Krithgor. A
new Legion Unit was formed
from the soldiers that had
been stationed there for some
time, myself included, and we
were charged with completing
the duties of the reassigned
soldiers.



Days passed swiftly for me as
my legion unit traveled to
various fortresses and
battlefields. The sights
revealed to us at each arrival
to this day seem unreal. With
the great military leaders and
the magi dead or missing our
fortresses began to fall. The
Giants, also crippled with the
loss of their magi, retreated
deep into the wilderness. The
Orcs became obsessed with
greed and blood lust, dividing
from the Rallosian Empire into
petty clans fighting each
other over the spoils of the
war. The Goblins went mad
cowering in the shadows and
caverns of Tunarias frontiers.
We returned after many
months to the Fortress of
Krithgor to find the once
mighty stronghold reduced



to rubble like so many of the
fortresses we had visited on our patrol.
Whatever creatures had
destroyed the fortress had not
even spared women and
children, their remains lay
strewn about the stones that
once formed the strongholds
walls. This was when I gave in
to my pride and accepted that
the Rallosian Empire was no
more.
