|WAR Story||High Elves WAR Story|
The High Elves were the first of the armies of Order to input a defense against the attacking armies of Chaos which was indeed the crux of the ongoing war today. Aiding the flagging the Empire, though, the High Elves and their leader, Finubar, leave their home of Ulthuan open to attack from the vengeful Dark Elves who seek to reclaim it as their own.
When word reaches Prince Tyrion that a great Dark Elf invasion fleet is on its way to Ulthuan, he leads the Shining Guard north to the Blighted Isle, guessing that the enemy fleet will attempt its first landing there. Sure enough, the leading Black Ark of the fleet makes landfall on the northern coast of the Isle, and the Shining Guard meet the invaders head-on.
The noble warriors of the Shining Guard do not lack for courage or prowess on the field of battle, but the scale of the dark Elves' invasion is massive. The situation seems hopeless, until word reaches Prince Tyrion that the Phoenix King is returning to Ulthuan with several legions of warriors. Now, the Guard must fight to stall the invaders and buy time for reinforcements to arrive.
Prince Tyrion knows that his casualties will be heavy, and his heart mourns for the brave soldiers that he will lose. For those who choose to fight in the face of such peril, however, there is great honor to be earned. Should the Shining Guard prevail and drive the vile Dark Elves from their home, they will be immortalized in songs and tales for centuries to come.
Revered for their grasp of magic, High Elves have perfected the arts in a way no other race could. And while their Archmages may find themselves lacking in a close-combat scenario, the famed Swordmasters excel at exposing an enemy's weakness and using it to their advantage.
