Rebuilding the Loom of Fate
Thorns had been waiting for years to make their move. While lookshy was busy fighting the realm they sent a small group led by a deathknight to deliever a soulbreaker orb to the heart of the warring parties aiming to take a sizable chunk of both sides out in one move.
This attempt was succsessful, Lookshy and the Realm suffered heavy losses. The realm army (what little remained.) retreated.
However Thorns was not yet done. Over the next 16 years they slowly have been pressing their way north through the Maraukan lands. Lookshy contiunes to be at active war with thorns.
