Forrals Fortress is a boss battle thread where emissaries from all the major Althanas Power groups are sent to destroy a flying island. Atop this island is a massive fortress filled with a legion of goblins, orcs, and deadly secrets. Around it, a relentless forest governed by Berevar's harsh climate and filled with all manner of legendary beasts. Griffons, manticores, dire centipedes, and even a Sauron Kraken, all protect the castle from those foolish enough to venture the wilds. Who's responsible for this island gone rogue? Our adventurers must find out, and whoever is lucky enough to survive to see the fortress fall will be given treasures beyond imagination.

Instead of the truth, Kyla finds the cold embrace of death. The Orlouge children scream in sorrow and even the blackest of hearts will mourn. What led her here? Is this really the end? Althanas has lost one of its greatest. You must read to know more.
