26 BBY- Five years have passed since the Dor-Morgil Eldar made war upon the Death Watch and Kuat. In that time, both sides have been handed crushing defeats and monumentous victories. With the loyalties of the Fëanorian Eldar split, the Eldar shun thier brethren after an assasination attempt on the life of thier king, Turwaithion. The war has laid waste to Mandalore and Kuat, and the Elven world of New Lorien has been fought for for two years. The Eldar have fought to avenge the deaths of thier brothers in arms and the murdered Princess Alassiel. Her father and brother, Princes Megildurion and Beriothien, have fought the Death Watch-Kuati Alliance brutally. More than once, King Turwaithion has ordered them away from laying waste to worlds. Prince Adenn Tracyn, a True Mandalorian veteran, has served bravely along his brother-in-law and nephew, and proved himself a hero a dozen times over.
However, the Elves suffered a blow with the loss of Talyc Rinion, a peredhel
who was raised a Mandalorian. Outnumbered and outmaneuvered, Talyc dealt death to each of his opponents, and earned a legacy of fear and ferocity in the hearts of the Death Watch. Now, his great-great-great-great-great-grandson, Akeen Rinion, wields Talyc's swords against the Death Watch, thirsting for vengeance.
The Death Watch, led by Adenn's brother Kad, have a single aim: to destroy the Elven race, by any means nessecary. After the assasination of Alassiel was discovered to be preformed by several high-ranking Death Watch, the Elves have left no prisoners in any battle they fight against the Dagnir Mereel
, as the Death Watch are called in Sindarin. Kad himself, views Adenn as a traitor, and has attempted to kil him in the past by numerous means.
The Fëanorian Elves, now led by Asatare Daeronion, son of the traitorous Captain of the Royal Guard, have waged a bloody war of both espionage and open rebellion against the Elven crown, using every Kinslaying as proof of Turwaithion's evil. Even now, dissent spreads amongst the Eldar as thier King leads the war effort on Shogun.
The Kuat, fueled by thier Drive Yards, are engaged in a corporate war to eliminate competition from the Elven Shipyards. Sonn after the War began, Admiral Beriothien laid seige to Kuat, and several bloody battles have resutlted in stalemate as Feanorian spies within the Elven Fleet ensure Kuat's temporary survival.
Battered and weary, the Royal Family go on leave to the forest world of Dororn, to recuperate for a week before the front is regained. Only General Megildurion stays back, his lust for Mandalorian blood insatible.
