The Ala'nar OnslaughtEdit
After the Founding of the Ala'nar Dominion, King Shalador Arkem had orginally planned to properly use the his power to strengthen his rule. Only his Closest Ally and Friend Master Harem Lorel knew his plans. Taking up 2 Months in reformation of the Elven Villages in proper accordance gave hope to the Elven People Arkmoor. Neither Master Harem or King Shalador expected to unearth great powers during forming of the dominion. As each village and town pledge their lands to the dominion ancient writings from their ancestors surfaced. Even Ancient philosophy of Orderic was unearthered, which allowed Lady Le'denil To gain a voice in the works of Ala'nar. Lady Le'denil became in a way a religious and mystical woman with power. 6 Months past the unearthing of Ancient texts and different ways of magic were developed so did the elven dominion views on the realm. King Shalador changed as he became more involved in the affairs of the dominion. Lady Le'denil became obsessed with the ancient text believing that they would hold the key to Ala'nar's greatness. Only Master Lorel remained constant in his mission to inspire the dominion and maintain it. After the end of year, Master Lorel had made dealings with Orvik clans as measure of good faith.
It was all wastefull, Lady Le'denil had claim that if the areas around of the Dominion held ancient text and magics, so would the Orc lands of Arkmoor. Master Harem Lorel was the first to refuse this, claiming that excavation into their territory would mean ill-will against them. With this Master Harem Lorel Maintained the Dominion from Assaulting the lands. His policies maintained the Dominion from action, but also made it possible for the Orvik clans to become vulnerable. It was when King Shalador recieved news that Ancient text were found near Orvik lands when Master Harem Lorel lost all his influence. King Shalador and Lady Le'denil began to suspect that Master Harem's Loyalty was in question. Master Harem Lorel replied, " I am his friend, his Comrade, his follower, I shall not betray and will carry my king's will at any cost."
