WAR StoryDark Elves WAR Story
Many years ago, when Chaos was first unleashed upon the world, the Elven champion Aenarion drew the dread Sword of Khaine from its altar and used its terrible power to save his people from annihilation. When Aenarion died, his son, Malekith, did not inherit the throne. His people were too afraid that he was cursed by Chaos, to focused on war and that he would doom the High Elf. In retaliation, Malekith engineered a terrible civil war that last for centuries and divided the race of Elves into two factions.

The High Elves won the civil war. Malekith, who took the title of Witch King, fled with his followers across the Great Western Ocean and founded for themselves a new kingdom in the northern reaches of The New World. This land they called Naggaroth, meaning 'land of chill'.

Unlike the High Elves who seek to keep control of their emotions at all time, the Dark Elves revels in their hedonistic nature. Their society is a dark one, which enforce selfishness, greediness and pride. It is a cut throat society that has no room for the weak.

The Dark Elves long to return to Ulthuan, the High Elves kingdom. They seek to avenge their defeat and claim the land they believe is theirs by right. In the Age of Reckoning, Malekith learns of an impending Chaos invasion of the Empire and uses this knowledge to set in motion a chain of events that will leave the island home of the Elves defenseless against an invasion.
