Fall of the House of Ur

Long before the time of Rebirth a glade of soulpods was planted in the Realm of Shyish in order to bring life to the Realm of Death. At first this bold plan flourished, but tragedy struck during the Shrouded Times. As with much during this period nothing is known about what events brought disaster to the Glades of Winterleaf that inhabited the dark forests of Shyish.
What came after was a tainted and twisted version of the glades that once thrived. Similar yet terribly different from the Outcasts the dryads of the groves were twisted and corrupted by the land they were seeded in and a dark taint took hold. Long wars with the Chaos invaders who flooded Shyish have further added to House Ur's hatred. Now, like most of the clans of Winterleaf those of House Ur are bitter and resentful of the dark times that have come upon the Sylvaneth. Soon after her rebirth Alarielle sent envoys to the House of Ur to bring them word of her return and the resurgence of their power. She charged these noble spirits to protect the House from further corruption by the Realm and to bring them into the light once again.

Time has passed and the House of Ur has changed little, but those whom Alarielle sent to shepherd the clan have changed. They have become dark and bitter like the forests they now inhabit. Though their changes are not as profound as those belonging directly to the clan they have adopted the trappings of death and decorate themselves with the bones of the dead and other morbid trophies. Those who were once noble and righteous are now secretive and sinister.


  1. That is some beautiful artwork - really looking forwards to the models it inspires

  2. Thanks. I found some wonderfully inspirational pictures on Pinterest. I have a figure I'll be painting in the next couple days.
