Beyond the lands of civilized men of the Empire, far from the wretched existence of Bretonnian peasants, and the subterfuge and treachery of Tilea, is a broken land, a land where a common man can be raised to a king on one day and find an ignoble death the next. These lands, the Borderlands, the Border Princes, or the Lands of the Renegade Crowns have been the site of countless battles, countless wars, of conquest and defeat. Most are content with the way things are in the Borderlands, but a new danger awakens from a long slumber, stirring once more and bringing with it horrors unimaginable. This danger is a Tomb King, a Liche Lord of unimaginable power, and though contained in his tomb, he works in the dreams and nightmares of those Princes who rule the region. It is just a matter of time before the Death Scarab stakes a claim to his lands once more.
