The City of the Eternal Siege
Emperor Lucius the Conqueror
Emperor Lucius the Conqueror ruled Mardenhold nearly five centuries ago. His reign saw the expansion of the Empire into large swaths of the territories once held by the old Arnite Empire. The Emperor believed it was his sacred duty to the war god Kord to spread glorious combat to Mardenhold’s neighbors.
The party discovered his spirit remains tethered to his hidden tomb in the abandoned Kord Temple in the Merrid Woods. The Emperor stated that he knew the rightful heir to the throne of Mardenhold had survived the purge of his line 6 years ago. He was unaware of the Council’s existence until the party told him.
Emperor Lucius bequeathed his holy shield to Tanner Stromgen.
