Stormguard was once the underground fortress of the ''Knights of Thunder'', a group of warriors dedicated to [[Karana]], god of Storms.
Located on the eastern end of Antonica, Stormhold is the ruins of the once-great underground fortress of the Knights of Thunder. It's a complex maze of hallways where dangerous undead Knights roam freely.
+
[[Quartermaster Berlon]] is asking for vengeance. "In the walls...the corruption rises...it spreads...it has awakened. We are lost, yet we still walk...must forever seek one to avenge us."
+
From [[Cleansing the Enemy]] "...the knights old enemy, the Bone Bloods"
To locate Stormhold, ride a Griffin to the Thundering Steppes Tower (in Antonica), head on a north road, then turn into the hills away from Gnollsayer's Keep.
+
"''The Holy Shrine of Karana'' has tasked me with finding and collecting the tainted souls of those who have died here.""All tainted souls shall be forgiven and allowed to rest in peace."
+
From the ''Altar of Karana'':"...the knights encountered some 'Scions' that may have had something to do with their downfall." "The Scions must be stopped before they spread their contamination. Burn their cores upon the brazier before it's too late. The Lion Heads will guide the courageous. May the Storm Father forgive us our lack of vigilance..."
=== History ===
+
From [[Tainted Souls of Stormhold]], we learn that the oozes (life leeches, etc.) roaming Stormhold are actually the tainted souls of the knights of thunder. [[A condensed mist|condensed mists]] also update. The presence of 'condensed mist' in a fortress dedicated to the god of Storms warrants further research.
  +
[[A crushed librarian]]: "Bless Karana and the mighty storms that raged through the hold. The power of the storm brought judgment to those who deserve it..."The answers must lie within journals of those who dug deeply beneath the cells." "Those who guarded the Chamber must have known."
  +
The knights were afflicted by a "strange malady." Their joys began to be twisted and dark. "He wrote of knowing what caused the black waters deep beneath the caves carved by Lord Chesguard."
  +
"They knew what stirred in the deeps, that they awakened something that should have been left alone."
  +
From [[Sir Valinayle's Request]] we learned that [[Lord Gydak]] is using undead to bolster his forces.
  +
'Scion' means 'a descendant of a notable family'. There is a scion of Darkness, Destruction, Pain, Suffering.
   
 
Lord Chesgard was a legendary member of a long-dead knightly order known as the Knights of Thunder. It was during one of his many adventures, a crusade into a cursed bunker of the hills in the Commonlands, that Lord Chesgard would claim his greatest prize, the Bone Bladed Claymore. Unfortunately for all of his order, the sword would not be the only arcane force to return with Chesgard. Something dark and evil was beginning to take hold of him.

Lore

Stormguard was once the underground fortress of the Knights of Thunder, a group of warriors dedicated to Karana, god of Storms. Quartermaster Berlon is asking for vengeance. "In the walls...the corruption rises...it spreads...it has awakened. We are lost, yet we still walk...must forever seek one to avenge us." From Cleansing the Enemy "...the knights old enemy, the Bone Bloods" "The Holy Shrine of Karana has tasked me with finding and collecting the tainted souls of those who have died here.""All tainted souls shall be forgiven and allowed to rest in peace." From the Altar of Karana:"...the knights encountered some 'Scions' that may have had something to do with their downfall." "The Scions must be stopped before they spread their contamination. Burn their cores upon the brazier before it's too late. The Lion Heads will guide the courageous. May the Storm Father forgive us our lack of vigilance..." From Tainted Souls of Stormhold, we learn that the oozes (life leeches, etc.) roaming Stormhold are actually the tainted souls of the knights of thunder. condensed mists also update. The presence of 'condensed mist' in a fortress dedicated to the god of Storms warrants further research. A crushed librarian: "Bless Karana and the mighty storms that raged through the hold. The power of the storm brought judgment to those who deserve it..."The answers must lie within journals of those who dug deeply beneath the cells." "Those who guarded the Chamber must have known." The knights were afflicted by a "strange malady." Their joys began to be twisted and dark. "He wrote of knowing what caused the black waters deep beneath the caves carved by Lord Chesguard." "They knew what stirred in the deeps, that they awakened something that should have been left alone." From Sir Valinayle's Request we learned that Lord Gydak is using undead to bolster his forces. 'Scion' means 'a descendant of a notable family'. There is a scion of Darkness, Destruction, Pain, Suffering.

Lord Chesgard was a legendary member of a long-dead knightly order known as the Knights of Thunder. It was during one of his many adventures, a crusade into a cursed bunker of the hills in the Commonlands, that Lord Chesgard would claim his greatest prize, the Bone Bladed Claymore. Unfortunately for all of his order, the sword would not be the only arcane force to return with Chesgard. Something dark and evil was beginning to take hold of him.

When Lord Chesgard returned to Qeynos, he oversaw the construction of a mighty keep called Stormhold, but evil began to slowly seep into his mind and the design of the citadel itself became twisted and corrupted. Eventually this evil rose to the surface, and all within Stormhold were lost.
