|Ulthuan.net: The Home of the High Elves
Welcome to Ulthuan.net, one of the oldest and largest sites dedicated to Warhammer Fantasy High Elves. Although this is a race specific forum we welcome players of other Fantasy races as well as Warhammer 40K players. Here you can find a wealth of information on the High Elves of Ulthuan, but again, you may find information and assistance about other races, both Fantasy and 40K, or even other Games Workshop games.
If you are new to this site, please read the Intro to Asur.org page. The link can be found on the left under the By Members, For Members section. Along the left panel of this screen you can find links to all of our content. The Concerning the Asur section contains summaries of mostly official information regarding High Elf politics, military, culture and so on. The Great Library of Hoeth contains member submitted content such as tactics articles, stories, pictures and the like. You will also find links to other content including the publications of our e-zine, the Citizen Levy.
Most importantly, you should note the link to our forums. Within the large selection of forums you should find a place to discuss whatever might be on your mind whether or not it is High Elf, or even Warhammer related. A couple things to note about these. First, there is a Sticky topic in the Off Topic forum for you to advertise your own site if you wish. We do not encourage other forms of advertising without our prior given consent. Second, please take note of the Report post function, the button with the ! point that exists at the bottom right of each post. If you have a problem with a post, please use that to report it.
|News: Reinforcements have arrived|
|A pair of messenger ravens soared through the sky, dancing on thermals, their quarry located somewhere to the south. Strapped to their feet were a pair notes, the conclusions of the grand council of the Loremasters of Hoeth. News had reached the White Tower that in Elthin Arvan the ‘round ones’ were upon the warpath once again and the council would need eyes on the ground. Heroes ad scholars from the kingdoms and beyond were tested and most were found wanting, but a pair proved to have the qualities needed for the task at hand.|
As morning gave way to noon one of the raves made a quick turn and descended at breathtaking speed towards the shores of Yvresse. Amids the foam of crashing waves, upon a rock, stood a warrior of divine skill. A hundred times he had marched against the foes of Ulthuan and a hundred times he was victorious, yet his heart was not content. Immortality played upon his thoughts and he sought to hear the wail of the Banshee hoping it would grant him the prize legends spoke of. Unperturbed by the chaos of the sea the black bird landed on his shoulder gently pecking at the warrior’s ear until it was noticed. The message was unfurled and elegant runes brought a smile to his face. The council of Hoeth had summoned him, duties he would perform, deeds shall be done, foes will be vanquished and one step closer to immortality he would be.
The sun was setting behind the Annulii beyond the Sea of Dreams, as the second bird approached what looked like a rainbow given form, a coastal town of serene beauty. There upon the highest tower a lady reclined upon a divan flanked by pair of grey charcian lions, as grey as the eyes of their mistress. Many a book of sorcerious lore was scattered around the room as the lady pondered on the meaning of the approaching raven. The black bird swooping from the gloom of the east, could only be a portent of dire news. With a flapping of wings the dark guest entered the room and perched itself upon the statue of Morai-Heg. The lady unfurled the message and a tear rolled down her cheak, not a tear of sorrow but one of joy, the council has summoned her. As she walked out of the room thinking of the future the lions gave a mournful roar and from the statue the raven spoke “Nevermore!”
Due to the needs of the site and in order to keep an eye on the insidious and thieving Dwarfs the Loremaster council has decided to strengthen the ranks of the site administration.
Jimmy and Aicanor have been risen to the rank of Herald and rdghuizing has been promoted to a Loremaster.
Congratulations all, may your wits stay sharp, your mood jovial and your rule just!
On the behalf of the Loremaster council
|News: An oath fulfilled|
|"As far as the eye could see the fields were littered with the bodies of the fallen. From the mountains in the east to the shining seas in the west a layer of dead spoke to the gods louder than any prayer. And amidst all that carnage a warrior stood alone. An oath he had taken and an oath he had fulfilled. He battled for a century, where ever, when ever and against who ever crossed his path leaving all the challengers in the dirt. From heaven high and hell below gods approached dipping their blades in salute. The warrior cared not for glory and accolades, a cold smirk dancing on his lips. A salute was given and then he charged. Mortals had fallen, immortality awaited!"|
Congratulation Jimmy, your dedication have been an inspiration to many. May your arm stay strong and fortune favours you!
In the name of the Loremaster council and Herald delegation
