Wyrmshadow: Crash and Burn - Factions -Shadow Empire
The Story of the Shadow Empire
Insurrection grips the nation of Imperia! A mysterious warrior calling himself the Shadow Knight entered the court of Imperia’s Emerald Emperor Koslov and slew him in his own throne! Panic gripped the nation and indeed all of Wyrmshadow, as this assassination was but the first shed blood of a massive, sudden, and brilliantly executed coup. With Koslov dead, the Shadow Knight assumed his throne, forced his armies into retreat, and declared all of Wyrmshadow his sovereign Shadow Empire. Our story follows the Shadow Knight’s greatest generals, the Drao Strategist Morkhan Latmour, the enigmatic Living Polymorph known by many names, yet referring to himself as The Nameless, and the brutal Fiendish Troll, Traag.
