  • Wraith King Lore



    For untold years, King Ostarion built a kingdom from the remains of his enemies. It was an obsessive's errand, done to pass the long eternities of a monarchy that seemed fated never to end. He believed that as long as he built up the towers of his palace, he could not die. But eventually he learned that he had been deluded...that bone itself could perish. Deeply mistrustful of flesh, he sought a more permanent way of extending his reign, and at last settled on pursuit of wraith energy, a form of pure spirit given off by certain dark souls at death. Should he infuse himself with Wraith Essence, he thought he might create a body as luminous and eternal as his ego. On the millennial solstice known as Wraith-Night, he submitted to a rite of transformation, compelling his subjects to harvest enough souls to fuel his ambition for immortality. No one knows how many of his champions died, for the only survivor who mattered was the Wraith King who rose with the sun on the following morn. Now he rarely spends a moment on his glowing throne--but strides out with sword drawn, demanding a fealty that extends far beyond death.
    Heroes this user should seriously reconsider ever picking again.

      I love the new lore! It is also intriguing that his kingdom of bones aparently had no other residends than him ( I thought so before but now it seems confirmed) but now he seems to build a new kingdom and it either has other citizens in the form of undead (or wraiths more specificly I guess) or the feilty the lore speaks of is the people's souls to enpower him, thus meaning his kingdom is only his throne and himself and all the people he can find to take their souls.

      EDIT: I thought about it and he has a big ego so he seems to think everything is his kingdom, so collecting souls as tribute of being in "his kingdom" seems more likely.

        Of course not. My pet monkey turtle crab wrote it tomorrow. What a preposterous accusation.
