The Opened World
Abandoned after the death of his father at the hands of a rival cult leader, the man who would become Lord Eenkho grew up on the streets of Ir Alatha. Legends abound of his exploits, from his early mastery of marksmanship to encounters with many of the most prominent figures of his age to opening many of the Eyes . What is certain, however, is that he at some point deceived and assassinated the Arch-Prophet Zakkai, and secretly assumed his role as head of the Academy of Prophecy. Manipulating the students’ and faculty’s prophecies to his favor, and driven further into madness by several powerful artifacts, Eenkho rapidly grew in knowledge and power of both arcane and political machinations. Divining the location of the Higharm Thanatops in the caves below Ir Alatha, he orchestrated first attack on the capital by flushing out the subterranean Shakaarya into the streets, simultaneously clearing his own path and distracting the city above while powering the weapon. Aided by his resurrected father Halis, the Zoarch Prauson, the legendary thief and assassin Khooshahvah, Eenkho fled to the northern wastes where amassed an army and solidified his power. Marching from the Half-Built Fortress, Lord Eenkho’s forces dominated all of the North, while the [[Council | Council]‘s Tarabolis Protectorate could do little with no magic integrated into their military. Finally, in a force gathered by the Arch-Prophet Lektalis, the largest army ever gathered, divided into forces by element, overcame Eenkho’s forces, while the dark Lord was betrayed by his own treacherous queen, the Lady Saykoo. His soul orb was cleaved in half by Thanatops itself, while many other artifacts may be seen on display in the museum in Ir Alatha set up by the lore keeper Grinshoh.
