    Information Thread for Potential New Dogs of War Units

    The Dogs of War, also known as the Regiments of Renown is a polite term to describe Mercenaries from all across the known world. They are hired to fight against any if not all the nations of the Old World and beyond. They are drawn to places where fortunes can be won by ruthless adventures. From the lush jungles of the West to the misty isles of the East, and from the steamy swamplands of the South to the harsh snowlands of the north, the world is truly awash with rag-tag armies of sellswords who nurture the wishful dreams of loot, plunder and adventure.

Glook was captured (after a fine display of fist fighting) and the bandit’s leader, Sheikh Ahmed Shufti, was grudgingly impressed by the way the Old Worlder did not give in to pain, despite being pegged out in the desert for days. The bandits soon became nervous of the man, rumours that he was Al Muktar were now rife and they begged his forgiveness. He did better than that, he joined them, discarding his former name, and led them across the Old World gaining a fearsome reputation for himself and his newly named Desert Dogs as they served numerous masters. Horse, Scimitar and Shield.

Like all djinn, she knows many secrets forgotten by mortal man and has a weakness for knowledge.

This elite regiment was formed from the most devoted of the young desert warriors, men willing to die, and in dying gloriously pass into the highest of the 7 Heavens, known as St’oec.

They were immediately hired by the Prince of Luccini and sent to battle the many pirate bands on the Isle of Sartosa.

Unfortunately factions loyal to either Lucan or Luccini were constantly at each other’s throats and when the faction that the Leopold company was behind was defeated, the Leopard Company was ‘persuaded’ to leave the city for a life in exile.

    Ricco’s Republican Guard = The Republican Guard had a turbulent beginning as several Captains fell in quick succession during a particularly vicious battle against the forces of the tyrannical Merchant Prince of Remas, Omilo Mondo. However, a common soldier named Ricco ‘the ragged’, due to his torn and bloody clothing, assumed command of the Guard and played a leading part in the overthrow of Mondo. The regiment went on to parade the tyrant’s head around the city on the pike of one of the guardsmen. The newly established Republic could only offer praise and not hard cash to the brave soldiers, and so Ricco travelled to other Tilean cities in search of new recruits and cash to sustain the regiment. This led them across Tilea where they distinguished themselves with honour. Back in Remas, Ricco fell out with the Republican Council. Following the Council’s ordering of Ricco’s execution (which his loyal soldiers could not allow!), the Republican Guard set off on the life of a mercenary regiment, winning fame and renown wherever they fight. Heavy armour and pikes.

After swapping sides following a ‘disagreement’ with the Orcs (fighting his way out of the camp armed with only one of Gnashrak’s arms). Golgfag and his ogres set off on a mercenary career which would take him across the Empire and Tilea, making him very rich and very fat in the process.

    The Cursed Company = A terrible element of the curse is evoked each time he slays an enemy, for his defeated foes rise immediately to serve him in undeath, slave to his will. He travels the world; living out a tragic parody of his former mercenary career, fighting whatever he finds in battle. His anger and despair momentarily lost in the bloodshed, he continues his doomed existence in the desperate hope that one time when his skeletal body is slain, he will know the relief of true death.

With the coming of the new races to Lustria, Harkon has hatched a scheme, no matter the consequences of the invasion. He has dispatched emissaries to the more black-hearted invaders, messengers bearing gifts - gilded, ebony skulls containing the power to call forth Harkon's servants. With these allies the invaders further Harkon's power with every battle."

    Magical Weapons, Armour, Amulets, Scrolls and Other Items

    This section deals in those magical items that can be used by this faction. This is by no means a full list, I doubt I'll ever get that, but it will provide modders with information if they wish to add new magical weapons, armour and items into the game to be used.

    Common Magic Items
    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 
    If you follow the link below you will find dozens of magical items that are commonly found in the Old World (and beyond).
    https://www.twcenter.net/forums/show...1#post15255257


    Magic Weapons
    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 
    Blight = ”Blight is a darkly powerful blade, centuries old and suffused with unholy magic.”
    http://kippersmelee.ca/wp-content/up...ogs-of-War.pdf

    Death Killing Splat Swotter = ”Death Killing Splat Swotter is the biggest double handed sword you have ever seen. It is as tall as a man and can easily cleave someone in two or three bits.”
    http://i.imgur.com/i3oxhI2.jpg

    Scimitar of Dakisir = ”This scimitar is an heirloom of the tribal sheikhs of the Desert Dogs. It was forged centuries ago in the Kasbah of Dakisir, long ago sacked and ruined by the Undead. The blade is decorated with magical texts inlaid with gold.”
    http://kippersmelee.ca/wp-content/up...ogs-of-War.pdf

    Basilisk Blade = ”Even after death the bones of a Basilisk poison the world around them, exuding a foul aura that can putrefy flesh and corrode metal. Weapons fashioned from the rancid bones recovered from Basilisk remains are terrifyingly deadly, but thankfully rare as they are just as deadly to their wielders as they are to their victims.”
    https://drive.google.com/drive/folde...V96TFBvQ1dNZGc Monstrous Arcanum

    Cold Iron Blade = ”Ancient lore claims that only iron weapons shaped without the use of fire can harm the spirits that infest certain regions of the world. Only the strongest of smiths can perform such a feat, hammering the metal into shape with brute strength before such artefacts are enchanted. Though the results are always crudely shaped, their potency against the ephemeral creatures is unquestionable.”
    https://drive.google.com/drive/folde...V96TFBvQ1dNZGc Monstrous Arcanum

    The Lash of Itzaotyl = ”Used by the servants of the Old Ones to subdue the massive beasts that stalked the world at the dawn of time, the ancient Last of Itzaotyl ensnares all it touches with an unbreakable tendril of pure magical essence. Since its theft from the Lizardmen, by the daughters of Naggaroth millennia ago, it has known many masters and current whereabouts are unknown.”
    https://drive.google.com/drive/folde...V96TFBvQ1dNZGc Monstrous Arcanum


    Magic Armour
    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 
    Scintillating Shield = ”In the ancient legends of Estalia, retold so many times in their origin is now forgotten, heroes would be gifted with shields which were so highly polished they blinded their foes and deflected the deadly gaze of the Basilisks and Cockatrice that were the scourge of that Land in ancient days. Scintillating Shields, whether they be the items spoken of in legend or more recent creations wrought by wizard-craft, fetch a prince’s ransom when rumours of Basilisk or Cockatrice attack spread.”
    https://drive.google.com/drive/folde...V96TFBvQ1dNZGc Monstrous Arcanum

    Wyrmscale Armour of the Deep = ”A glistening coat of Merwyrm scales, the enchantment on this armour keeps it coated with a shimmering Layer of briny sea water. Not only do the iron-hard scales deflect sword and arrow, but the scales still recall their home in the icy deeps of the ocean and grant their wearer passage through water and foil fiery assaults upon him.”
    https://drive.google.com/drive/folde...V96TFBvQ1dNZGc Monstrous Arcanum


    Arcane Items
    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 
    Lesser Earthstone = ”This item is a fist-sized lump of granite, irregularly shaped and carved with runes pertaining to the element of earth. A small earth elemental is magically bound to the stone and may be summoned by the stone’s holder.”
    https://www.scribd.com/document/2479...hite-Dwarf-132

    Oggum Staff = A special kind of staff made by the druids of Albion. This grants them control over giants, and also protects the bearer.
    http://kippersmelee.ca/wp-content/up...ogs-of-War.pdf

    The Ebony Skulls = ”The Ebony Skulls are gifts from Harkon and are carried by emissaries to be presented to potential allies. Each is an inky-black skull that must be cast to the ground to unlock the dark powers within.”

    Enchanted Items
    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 
    Amulet of Dragonheart = ”This amulet is one of the potent artefacts made by Caledor the Dragontamer for the elven Dragon Princes. It is said that the gleaming gem hanging around Asarnil’s neck is a stone found at the heart of a mountain, blessed by Caledor the Dragontamer himself.”
    http://kippersmelee.ca/wp-content/up...ogs-of-War.pdf

    Grimacing Death Mask = ”The mask, which represents the grimacing face of death, is the last thing Vespero’s duelling opponents see before they meet their sudden end.”
    http://kippersmelee.ca/wp-content/up...ogs-of-War.pdf

    Pelt of Wulfag = ”When able to pursue a broken enemy they must do so, and they add D6 speed to their movement.”
    http://kippersmelee.ca/wp-content/up...ogs-of-War.pdf


    Talismans
    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 
    Bear Fang = ”This gigantic and ancient yellowed canine tooth is the sacred talisman of lordship among Beorg’s tribe. Beorg wears it about his neck. The talisman wards off blows that would otherwise harm it’s wearer.”
    http://kippersmelee.ca/wp-content/up...ogs-of-War.pdf

    Dark Gem of the Cursed = ”The Dark Gem of the Cursed glows a blood-red shade that intensifies when a blow is directed towards Richter, protecting him from harm.”
    http://kippersmelee.ca/wp-content/up...ogs-of-War.pdf

    Faithless Charm = ”The degenerate Ettin hill clans have been known to hang these small craven charms in the dismal northern woods, warding away those who would trespass on the Ettin’s miserable existence. Each is an embodiment of the unholy curse that afflicts the very souls of the Ettin. Those foolish enough to carry one with them for any length of time find their senses sharpened - until they lose control and the curse consumes them too.”
    https://drive.google.com/drive/folde...V96TFBvQ1dNZGc Monstrous Arcanum

    The Pinion of the Phoenix = ”These ephemeral feathers, plucked from the burning wings of a manifested phoenix and woven into a talisman, are preserved by the arts of ancient Elf magic. Handed down through generations of High Elf nobility, they are borne into the direst of battles as badges of honour, swiftly burning away to dust once removed from their protective caves. While they last they protect their bearer from harm, and should he fall grant him a fiery reprieve from death.”
    https://drive.google.com/drive/folde...V96TFBvQ1dNZGc Monstrous Arcanum

    Warpscale Pendant = ”Crafted from the deformed scales of a Warpfire Dragon, these eerily worked talismans are the product not of twisted Skaven ingenuity as some suspect but rather of some unseen agency believed to be connected to the ruling cabals of the Tilean City-states. Ensorcelled to protect the wearer against weapons fuelled by warpstone, many Skaven wizards covet such items as a measure against assassination by their own kind - though the fear Warpfire Dragon’s cause among the warpstone-laden holds of the Skaven keeps them rare.”
    https://drive.google.com/drive/folde...V96TFBvQ1dNZGc Monstrous Arcanum


    Magic Standards
    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 
    Banner of Kalad = ”Kalad was one of the black-hearted brothers of Mengil who showed great natural skill in the manipulation of dark magicks. Such a practice is outlawed by order of the Witch King, and Mengil took great delight in skinning his brother alive. He then had the skin attached to his personal standard. Such was Kalad’s power that a nimbus composed of evil daemon-spirits constantly hovers around his flesh, keeping his essence alive in torment.”
    http://kippersmelee.ca/wp-content/up...ogs-of-War.pdf

    Bear Banner = ”Oerl carries the tribe’s totem into battle - an entire bear skin whose grizzly head leers out from the top. The skin’s power is immense, driving the warriors into a fury that’s almost impossible to stop.”
    http://kippersmelee.ca/wp-content/up...ogs-of-War.pdf

    Black Banner of the Muktarhin = Adds +D3 to the score to see who wins combat.
    http://kippersmelee.ca/wp-content/up...ogs-of-War.pdf

    Lucky Magic Totem Pole = ”This long wooden pole is covered in skulls and other totems to bring good luck.”
    http://i.imgur.com/i3oxhI2.jpg

    Sacrificial Banner = ”Covered with arcane patterns daubed in blood and draped in ornate sigils and charms the Sacrificial Banner looks impressive, but its real purpose is rarely explained to those troops ‘honoured’ with its care. It is enchanted with the sole purpose of enraging and attracting the ire of the gigantic monsters that prowl the Warhammer world, so that a canny general can dictate the movement of his enemy’s most powerful ally.”
    https://drive.google.com/drive/folde...V96TFBvQ1dNZGc Monstrous Arcanum

    The Banner of Malediction = ”The sinister banner of the Cursed Company has been carried for centuries by various enslaved warriors of Richter. It is a dark parody of his original, disgraced mercenary company banner.”
    http://kippersmelee.ca/wp-content/up...ogs-of-War.pdf


    Mythic Items
    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 
    Dawnstar Sword = ”Legend goes that this blade was forged in the first rays of light to strike the world. The energy of this auspicious enchantment remains embedded deep within the burnished blade, waiting to be called forth once more in a blaze of glory.”
    https://drive.google.com/drive/folde...WhndVE0VklZZDA Storm of Magic

    Blade of Last Resort = ”This sword has ever had a twisted sense of humour, seeking out overmatched heroes and aiding them against a chosen foe. However, the Blade of Last Resort draws its strength from a victor’s glorious lifeblood; those that best an opponent with its aid themselves have scant moments to live.”
    https://drive.google.com/drive/folde...WhndVE0VklZZDA Storm of Magic

    Dodecahedron of Continental Drift = ”Said to have been left behind by the Old Ones, this peculiar object can be used to remake the world. Each alteration to the Dodecahedron’s external matrix is reflected on the land around the user. Its ill-considered use can easily prove catastrophic…”
    https://drive.google.com/drive/folde...WhndVE0VklZZDA Storm of Magic

    Fozzrik’s Floating Fortress = ”Though Fozzrik’s magical aptitude led him to become a wizard, he never lost his love for architecture. Many of the Old World’s cities have been built around immaculate structures that Fozzrik created from stone and sorcery, but more prized by far are his floating fortresses - buildings that move under their own power and sprout defences to repel intruders.”
    https://drive.google.com/drive/folde...WhndVE0VklZZDA Storm of Magic

    Woodwaker’s Wand = ”Once upon a time, all the woods in the world were linked. Some say this great forest was alive, in a curious sort of way, and that every tree that now grows retains a portion of its vigour and intelligence just waiting to be revived.”
    https://drive.google.com/drive/folde...WhndVE0VklZZDA Storm of Magic

    Living Deadwood Staff = ”Arboreonecromancy is a little-practiced branch of wizardry - any mystic crazed enough to attempt it normally transfers his attentions back to raising zombies and skeletons, rather than undead trees. However, legends tell of the Archmage Sycamo, ‘The Daemon Carpenter of Estalia’, who not only perfected a method of reanimating trees from their residual elements, but also filling them with astounding vigour. Much of Sycamo’s work has, fortunately, been lost to the intervening aeons, but the Living Deadwood Staff never stays missing for long…”
    https://drive.google.com/drive/folde...WhndVE0VklZZDA Storm of Magic

    Giantkin Helm = ”After constantly being told ‘We expect big things from you’ by his Elector Count father, Heinrich von Roth spent much of the family fortune commissioning an artefact that would help him achieve greatness. Alas, he was to learn that when dealing with wizards, precision of diction is just as important as largesse of payment.”
    https://drive.google.com/drive/folde...WhndVE0VklZZDA Storm of Magic

    Windcatcher Prism = ”This peculiar bauble was crafted long ago, its purpose very much tied to storms of magic. Once a particular Wind of Magic rises to a certain cataclysmic level, the Windcatcher Prism absorbs and rechannels a portion of its power, bestowing the bearer - and his immediate allies - with an avataric aspect of the ascendant Wind of Magic.”
    https://drive.google.com/drive/folde...WhndVE0VklZZDA Storm of Magic

    Paranoth’s Piquet Fence = ”Paranoth was a famous travelling mage, who trod every road ‘twixt Cathay and Naggarond. Naturally, only a particularly foolish wizard would journey such roads without defences, so Paranoth wove himself a sorcerous fence to defend his encampments whilst he and his companions slept.”
    https://drive.google.com/drive/folde...WhndVE0VklZZDA Storm of Magic

    Rockcharmer’s Flute = ”Androgast Gildheim was the first man in the Empire to master this granite flute, but its origins lie hidden in the mists of time. Some say that the Rockcharmer’s Flute was used to destroy the old Dwarfen realms, others that it sank the fabled realm of Seidon. However, the most popular tale concerns a drunken Halfling, the Rockcharmer’s Flute, a jug of lamp oil, a plate of sausages and the accidental creation of the Grey Mountains.”
    https://drive.google.com/drive/folde...WhndVE0VklZZDA Storm of Magic

    Wyssan’s Weighted Dice = ”This set of weighted dice is one amongst many forged by Arctovian Wyssan over the course of a long and (unsurprisingly) successful wagering career. At the bearer’s command, these skull-marked cubes play havoc with the laws of causality; turning certainty into bleak misfortune.”
    https://drive.google.com/drive/folde...WhndVE0VklZZDA Storm of Magic

    Arabyan Puzzlebox = ”This elegantly crafted container houses many hundreds of glittering gemstones, each with the power to harness the Winds of Magic if used in the correct manner. Alas, the user can never truly be sure that the compartment he has opened will contain the gems he needed.”
    https://drive.google.com/drive/folde...WhndVE0VklZZDA Storm of Magic

    Black Book of Ibn Naggazar = ”Ibn Naggazar was a brilliant, if somewhat maniacal, Arabyan sorcerer. Whilst it is unknown whether his madness sprang from isolation, too many attempts at creating intoxicating ‘elixirs’ or the honeyed promises of whispering Daemons, there can be no doubt that he was utterly insane. No rational wizard would create a book inked on the skin of his closest family, much less constantly follow its advice.”
    https://drive.google.com/drive/folde...WhndVE0VklZZDA Storm of Magic

    Silverstone Axe = ”In the ancient barrows that dot the Empire, huge enchanted axes forged of gromril, known to ancient men as Silverstone, have been found. Inert until the storms of magic howl, these axes are so heavy that only the strongest warriors can lift them and then impact shakes the ground, knocking armoured warriors from their feet while against wizards their effects are even more potent as the winds of magic lash and recoil at their blows. When a storm of magic rages these weapons are brought to the battlefield once again to bring down the titanic beasts set loose upon the world.” - Magic Weapon
    https://drive.google.com/drive/folde...V96TFBvQ1dNZGc Monstrous Arcanum

    The Crucible of Horrors = ”No one knows from whence the Crucible of Horrors came, but contained within the flash of twisted meteoric iron is a vortex of seething black energy which screams like the torment of damned souls. This deadly artefact has been sought out by many down the centuries, and it has passed through the hands of many tyrants, arch-sorcerers, wizards and kings, and at its use the destruction of cities and slaughter of armies has been laid. When unleashed the power of the crucible is erratic and dangerously unstable, but it can unleash devastation and even create nightmarish doppelgangers of slain monsters to fight at the wielder’s bidding. The power of the Crucible of Horrors is treacherous however, as more than one would be conqueror has found to their cost.” - Enchanted Items
    https://drive.google.com/drive/folde...V96TFBvQ1dNZGc Monstrous Arcanum

    The White Sistrum = ”There are many night-haunted legends originating from the foetid jungles and deadly wastes of the far hinterlands of Khuresh. Stories abound of the dread Snake Men and the foul and nightmarish Blood Naga queens who rule there, and it is a realm where men are no more than hunted prey, and blood and souls are the only coin in trade. Rarely do artefacts of this fell civilisation reach the Old World and all are steeped in blood and misunderstood power. One such artefact is the White Sistrum, a strange ivory-grown, drum shaped like an hourglass, whose discordant music brings madness and death, and evokes the terrible rites of the Naga.” - Arcane Item
