History

Around 2300 IC, Grasshk Warpeye led an attack on High Elves encamped in the ruins of Tor Karyndid with Shissik using his skills in binding and controlling monsters. [1c]

When the High Elves retreated after a slaughter of their Silver Helms he appeared with a Basilisk and a great horde of rat men to counter which Prince Palanaith ordered the archers and Eagles Claw batteries into action. Despite huge loses, many Skaven still reached the walls, throwing up ladders whilst fire and tainted shot were unleashed by various war machines. [1a]

The High Elves cut down any and all Skaven that reached the top of the walls but the defenders losses began to grow with the surviving Silver Helms led by Prince Palanaith holding the defence fast. It was then that the basilisk struck, killing the prince. Kaldain struck back, putting three arrows into its head, including one into an eye - it fell back and began to thrash madly in the ranks of the ratmen. Caluandr summoned and unleashed an Arcane Phoenix on the horde beyond the walls forcing them to flee.[1b]

All knew that the respite was likely to be short and the mage retreated to the peak of the tower, guarded by the remaining Silver Helms. The next attack came from below as a Dread Maw emerged from the cellar, driven forth by the Skaven behind it. [1c] As the defenders fought to drive back the monster and the Skaven with it, more ratmen began to attack the gate and a Skaven Assassin stuck down the last knight guarding the chanting mage. [1b]

Kaldain struck down the black clad assassin but received a poisoned wound in return and with a grim smile plunged into the fray to hold the ratmen back. However, he had given Caluandir time to complete his summoning and as dawn broke, a Magma Dragon arrived and attacked the Skaven. [1b]

Sadly as they attempted to flee, the Dragon devoured Calunandr. It is unkown if Shissk survived the attack of the great beast. [1b]
