Jump to: navigation, search

Hergig is the capital of Hochland, as well its largest city. It is the home of Aldebrand Ludenhof.[1a][1b][1c] It is located on the border between Hochland and Ostland, on a tributary of the River Talabec.[2]

Many nobles of Hochland maintain houses here but when resident spend most of their their time in the hunting lodges that can be found in the surrounding forest. [5a]

History

The nobles continuing love of hunting dangerous beasts such as Minotaurs lead to the development of the Hochland Long Rifle. [5a]

Around 1500 IC, the Beastlord Gorthor and his horde rampages through Ostland before tearing into Hochland. Mikael, the Elector Count of Hochland heavily fortifed his capital, Hergig and it took three weeks for the vast horde to fight their bloody way thorugh the outer defences. Finally they broke through but the battle continued as the castle itself came under seige. Then a large force of the Knights of the Blazing Sun, fresh from the Crusades arrived and cut a swathe through the beastmen. Count Mikael led the remaining defenders against the besiegers and was engaged in combat by Gorthor. The duel was brutal and lasted hours before the Runefang broke the Beastlords spear, Impaler and Mikael cut down his enemy, causing the horde to break and flee. The victorious Mikael, mortally wounded, lived only a few minutes longer. [6a]

Storm of Chaos

The city was attacked by the Norse Prince Styrkaar who had previously overun the towns of Kurst and Zundap but Count Ludendorf and his army held him there, the many handgunners causing huge numbers of deaths aomngst the attackers before they were attacked by Skaven. [4a]
