Eataine is the fourth tier zone for the High Elves army of the Shining Guard. This inner kingdom of Ulthuan is also home to the greatest city of the Asur, their capital Lothern.

OverviewEdit

The idyllic countryside in Eataine is scattered with villas, vineyards and rolling green hills. The pastoral province is where most nobles of Ulthuan spend their summers. The opulent manors, whose number is unrivalled by any other region on Ulthuan, are home not only to some of the High Elves' greatest scholars, poets and warriors, but also to their ruler, for the Phoenix King himself resides there.

The great city-state of Lothern is the center and source of Eataine's wealth and prestige. Nowhere else on Ulthuan can one see a greater display of the Asur's magnificent craftmanship. Towers of glittering silver reach into the sky, and plazas of white marble hold the markets selling beautiful jewellery. Any visitor would carry an image of the marvels he has seen within his mind for a long time.

However, not all of Lothern is as peaceful and calm as it seems to be, as the city is also home to the Phoenix Throne, the very place and position Malekith, the Witch King of the Druchii, has longed for for centuries. The Phoenix Kings of Ulthuan will never forget this threat while sitting in their throne.

Eataine in the Age of ReckoningEdit

As the fight between the Asur and their dark brethren continues over all of Ulthuan, the invaders have slowly been advancing towards Lothern itself. Under the relentless assault, Prince Tyrion's forces have been forced to fall back to Eataine to regroup and take on reinforcements. However, where the Asur army expected to find an opportunity to rest, they are engaged in a battle they did not expect.

While the High Elves' main force is holding back the Druchii, their Witch King has completed a dark pact with the Greenskins of the Old World. He has sent a small force to aid them in cutting lumber from the forest of Avelorn themselves to build ramshackle wooden barges. On these makeshift boats, the brutes have shipped their forces across the Inner Sea and have landed on the coast of Eataine, behind the defense lines of the Asur.

So where the retreating forces of the Shining Guard expected to find respite, they instead found their lands and cities already under siege. Rushing to the aid of its countrymen, the Shining Guard was forced to abandon the defense lines against the Dark Elves, allowing the Druchii to rampage and ravage behind them.

However, the dangerous situation the Asur found themselves in has been somewhat rectified by the struggle within the Druchii forces. Allowed to take and burn from the abandoned parts of Eataine at will, their greed has led the leaders of the Dark Elves to engage in old rivalries, each claiming the riches spoils for their side. With his prize closer to his hand than ever before, Malekith may yet see himself be robbed of victory. While the Witch King is busy holding his forces together, the Asur have gained a chance to repair the damage Malekith has brought unto the ancient menhirs channeling the magical energies of the vortex. Should they manage to reestablish their balance, the tide of battle may yet be turned.

In a war that may yet fall to both sides, the next battle may very well be the one to decide over the fate of Ulthuan. And this battle will be fought in the fields of Eataine.
