Geography[edit | edit source]

King's Guard is located in northeastern Glenumbra on the western base of the King's Guard Mountains. King's Guard itself borders the Cambray Hills region to the southwest while it borders the Alcaire area to the east. King's Guard is very mountainous, the shores of King's Guard are located far down below the central plains of the area. Large escarpments are in between the region and the beaches. The northwestern hills of the mountains has large deposits of Iron located in them; this was one of the reasons why the town Crosswych was founded.[1]

Battle of Cath Bedraud; The Foothills[edit | edit source]

During the Interregnum in 2E 582, the Bloodthorn Cult of the Reach waged war with the Bretons of Glenumbra to destroy and corrupt the Daggerfall Covenant to do his bidding. The war so moved northwards to the King's Guard region after Faolchu the Reborn was defeated at the Siege of Camlorn. The Lion Guard constructed a redoubt on the southwestern foothills of King's Guard that was known as the Lion Guard Redoubt. The Redoubt was used as the base of the army in the Battle, and it managed to secure the surrounding locations. The ruins of Merovec's Folly were captured by the Lion Guard and the Midnight Talisman was used to enter the ruins of Cath Bedraud. Angof the Gravesinger, the leader of the Bloodthorn Cult, used Zombies and Bloodthorn Warriors to defeat the Lion Guard but it proved to be in vain. The battle continued to Cath Bedraud.[2][3][4]

Battle of Cath Bedraud; The Crypt[edit | edit source]

The inner sanctum was blocked by a powerful ward that required the Midnight Talisman to enter the crypt. The Lion Guard had help in the form of a mysterious warrior known in legends as the Vestige. The Vestige defeated the battalion on the surface and opened Bedraud, letting the Lion Guard swarm in the inner catacombs. Angof was in the inner sanctum and prepared to reawaken the Ancient Kings of Greater Bretony, so he could unleash his wrath into Glenumbra and eventually High Rock. The Vestige encountered him and defeated his foul Bloodthorn Magic. The entire Glenumbra region was saved and the conflict had finally ended. However, turmoil in Stormhaven had risen by a group of Daedric worshippers known as the Supernal Dreamers. They were seen in the Alcaire fields.[4][5][6]
