The Shadowlands is the second tier zone for the army of House Uthorin. Once called Nagarythe and the proudest Kingdom of Ulthuan; it is now a blasted landscape torn asunder in the ancient Elven civil war called the Sundering, where the Shadow Warrior clans dwell, and the ancient Dark Elf capital of Anlec lies sunken.


The Shadowlands are the shattered remains of the once-mighty Elven kingdom of Nagarythe, left desolated after the apocalyptic events that ended the civil war between the High Elves and Dark Elves. What little remains of Nagarythe is a tortured and twisted land, blasted by fire and seared by destructive magical energies. Strange, mutated creatures stalk this gloomy, barren wasteland of grey earth and black stone. The High Elves named this cursed place the Shadowlands, for it seemed always to be in darkness.

Shadow Warriors are the descendants of the original mountain clans of Nagarythe who sided against Malekith during the Sundering. They blame the Druchii for the destruction of their homelands, and driven by their hatred of their dark cousins they have taken it upon themselves to patrol the desolation of the Shadowlands, guarding Ulthuan from any hint of invasion. It was not long after the Sundering that the Dark Elves returned to claim their ancestral land, and the two sides have fought ceaselessly for control of the region ever since.

The Shadowlands in the Age of ReckoningEdit

In the Age of Reckoning, the invaders from Naggaroth are searching for more of the ancient Menhirs that anchor the Vortex, and the High Elves have come to make sure they do not gain control of these standing stones. The Menhirs are sources of great arcane power, but any tampering with that power could have far-reaching effects that mirror the ancient Sundering.

The Shadowlands have other value for the Dark Elves. Artefacts and relics from their distant past can be found here as well, and these are prized by the nobles of Naggaroth. Eager-eyed scavengers search the blasted wastes for some trinket they can offer to curry favour with their lords, or perhaps even with the Witch King himself.

While the warriors of Naggaroth scour the Shadowlands for pieces of the past, it is the High Elves who make the most surprising discovery. Following a battle at one of the invaders' dig sites, ancient scrolls are found that complete a prophecy once thought lost. The events described in the antiquated scrolls bear a disquieting reference to the unfolding Age of Reckoning, but the prophecy also offers a slim hope that the Dark Elves terrible plan can be stopped.
