Farflame wrote:- 1027 BF - Battle at Warkhome (german Wehrheim) - you all know this story. Flying fortress Kholak-Kai destroyed almost whole city of Warkhome and many units of Midden Realm forces. But I wonder which formidable type of magic ritual or attack did it used? I found somewhere that it created "rain of fire" from above that burnt the city, but Im not sure if its true. On wiki there is info about big chasms in a city, so was it in fact earthquake? Or both fire and earthquake? Can you help me?

Amosh wrote:No, the battle of the clouds was fought over Gareth some days later, where airborn forces attacked the flying fortress (gryffon riders, flying carpets, djinni, witches, some balloons).
Farflame wrote:Do you know the reason why flying fortress fell from sky?
Farflame wrote:BTW who used balloons as war machines?

Farflame wrote:Why did Leonardo stay in Black Lands after Galotta's death? He was abducted by Galotta, but tried to sabotage his plans. Leonardo's mechanical war-machines like iron turtles (used in Third battle of the demons) were sabotaged by him. So why he make a triumvirate with Balphemor of Punin and Arngrimm von Ehrenstein to rule over Transysilien? Was there somehow involved a splitter of demonic crown used by Galotta?
Farflame wrote:Another question regarding this era:
Did you know how Rhazzazor died in the Battle of the Three Emperors? Afaik it was internal conflict between ruthless usurper of the throne Answin von Rabenmund and future empress Rohaja. What was Rhazzazor's intend to intervene into this battle? Did he tried to kill Rohaja and/or emperor Hal (who mysteriously appeared after x years of being officially dead)?
Farflame wrote:Good source, but flawed. Some info is short or missing details. For example I wonderer how Rohal the Wise take the emperors throne (465 BF). Its known fact that he banished last priest emperor and proclaimed emperor himself and started era of magic and renovation. But it seems strange that he was able to achieve this goal - Praois church was very strong, they had many followers, elite Sun Legion, Inquisition and other orders and army at their disposal. Or did Rohal use some magic "trick"?
Amosh wrote:Rhazzazzor tried to break his pact with Thargunitoth by sacrificing the people of Gareth via an old blood ritual and via the power of the Emperor's cursed sword Silipon. He was killed by the Staff of forgetting, the holy artifact of both Boron churches. The staff had previously absorbed the soul of a renegade Boron Priest and was destroyed when it shattered Rhazzazzor's head.

Well, he's (the son of) a demigod...
Farflame wrote:Please could you write about this topic a little more? I didnt find it on wiki. What is Silipon and who killed Rhazzazor using that Staff? Who was that renegade Boron priest?
Farflame wrote:Its hard to delve into Aventurian history and read all the stories about Rondra saints, noble knights and rulers - when you are not german. TDE lore is probably comparable only to Faerun history. Even Elders Scrolls lore isnt so big in scope.
Another interesting story:
In 1027 BF Alagrimm created much havoc in dwarven realm in Kosh mountains and Kosh province. He is described as elemental firebird - something like Phoenix. Is he really a bird? And why dwarves didnt destroy him in the past? Is he immortal so they could only capture/banish him?
