Turorial with the Barbarians - "The second empire"
Deep in the ancient forest of Althun is where the tribes of the low-ground barbarian people dwell. The shadows of the trees have been their hunting grounds ever since. As a wild and primitive people, the barbarians have established culture or civilisation only in lose bounds, forged by marriage or blood oath. Rages, war and massacre were common among the numerous barbarian eldests. As the Barbarians grew in number, they began to populate the hills and fields beyond the edge of their beloved forests. In these times, their enemiesrose against the wild people, forcing them to stand united against a common opponent. In these times, ChatKaruth, son and heir of Karuth, became the eldest of one of the mightiest clans among the trees. It was due to his strive that for the first time in generations, the clans united under one common banner, and gave oath to only one leader so that the cradles and the homelands of all tribes could be defended against all impure blood. ChatKaruth established law and order in the blossoming young empire and the Barbarians grew to be a force to influence the destiny of the green valleys and the high mountains of Widelands. When ChatKaruth died, he was an old man, father to three strong and ambitious and warlord to an army that could match any enemy willing to rise against the ancient forests. Though his glorious reign, ChatKaruth left his eldest son Thron in the due to succeed him as the tribes warlord a decision that left his two brothers unsatisfied. The old warlord knew that. As his father told him, Thron left the capital of Althunran, the home of the throne among the trees and redrew his forces to the high hills where he buried the corpse of his father and swore to the gods and his spirit, that hed return to re-established order. While his brothers raged in blind war against Thron and the few forces he left to secure the borders of Althun, the young warlord seeks to reunite his ambitious brothers and force the tribes to march once again under a common banner.
