The Tomb Kings of Nehekhara have advance northwards from the Land of the Dead towards Athel Loren, the great forest of the Wood Elves. The Beastmen of the Forest of Shadows have joined them in this march on Athel Loren. The Tomb Kings are attempting to retrieve an ancient tablet stolen by the Wood Elves that could give them great power, while the Beastmen are searching for the horns of Morghur, also known as the Master of Skulls. Both armies have successfully infiltrated southwestern Athel Loren and are slowly making their way east. The Beastmen and the Tomb Kings have joined forces now in a great assault on Athel Loren.
