To start the campaign, I have chosen Order Free People and therefore chose my war band from these Path to Glory tables. Below is the beginning of my story in the campaign. The story of Règgio and The Wolves of Ghur.
It had been a year or so since the war to defend the city of Greywater Fastness , the war which had seen the death of the King of Bretonni and ruler of House Houghton. The kingdoms were in ruin, the Kings only son Paladin Hènry was also killed in the finally days pushing away an insurance of Khorne Daemons from the edges of the city of Carcassonne leaving no true heir to the throne other than the Black Knight who was still missing from a time long before these cities of Order had sprung up.
A new King was needed to unite the people once again, stories were being told of the location of the Black Knight, one who could lead the Kingdom to prosperity once again. The time had come to find him and crown him and his house once again.
In the depths of the Forests surrounding Cartha, Règgio stood around a camp with a few of his trusted men by his side. He was one who did not belong to a house, like his brothers in arms. They were nomads wandering the Realms in search of something greater. He like a few others had been blessed with sipping from the Grail, but instead of returning home to lead with the countrymen, their quest was to search the Realms for clues of their past. They had heard tales of a powerful substance that allowed the bearer to whatever information they wanted to know. It was only known as 'Dark Crystals', their location, scattered in every part of every Realm.
This is where we are now. Many aspiring champions, lords, questers and the likes had heard of the same, but each had heard of its powers being used for different things. An aspiring Deathbringer from Aqshy had heard the power of The Dark Crystals could be used to ascend him straight to daemonhood. A Nomad Prince from Ghyran heard the Crystals power could be used to bring their forest King Orion back from the void. A Doomseeker Fyreslayer heard that if you crack open a crystal, Ur-Gold will forever pour out from it. A Beastclaw Hunter had heard, the crystals have the power to banish the winter forever. They couldn't all be right? Could they.
The search for the crystals had begun, the Age of Realm Hoppers was here.
Règgio O'ùghton and The Wolves of Ghur
Règgio, the Nomad Lord, Leader of the war band. His search for the Dark Crystals has started in the realm he and his people are most familiar with, Ghur. he once belonged to House Houghton, he was a nephew of the late King. He begun his quest for the Grail before the great war, a great story in itself. But now his search for information has brought him down this path. He must gain followers for the road ahead is long.
The Paladin of Cartha, a noble prince of the grail, entrusted with holding aloft the banner of the lady. Règgio's brother in blood, Franc.
His Men at Arms, previous followers of House Hulks will follow Règgio to the end. Trusted militiaarmed with Long Pikes and Shields.
Règgio's fellow Grail Knights, the same that left all those years ago on the same questing campaigns. They will never leave their Lords side and will fight to the death in honour of the Lady.
The Knights of the Realm, all champions in their own right, fought for their Kingdom in the Season of War. The saw Règgio on the battlefields, they saw the passion in his eyes and blessings of the lady in his every swing of blade. From that moment they vowed to follow Règgio to the end,
Nomads of the Forests of Cartha, the Pegasus Knights joined the Lord to find the blessing of the lady in the own right.
And so the first quest has begun, they will travel to the Verdigris Plains in Chamon as this is where it is told the power of the crystals focuses.
