The Hope of Erethor
During the Last Age
The fall of Erenland marks the end of the Third Age, ushering in a time of war, death, and despair that scholars ominously call the Last Age of Eredane.
In the aftermath of the Last Battle, a great tower is built in which children are taught the ways of Izrador to become a new generation of unholy clerics and warriors in his name. Soon, as the wars spread and Izrador’s forces needed more and more aid, the breeding programs were stepped up. Newborns stolen from across the land began to appear at the tower known as Theros Obsidia, where they were trained to serve the Shadow in the North. These, the dark god’s most faithful servants, are known as legates.
