Warhammer Online Overview: Reikland
Sun Tzu’s treatise on The Art of War declares that “All warfare is based on deception.” In fact, deception is precisely what the forces of Chaos are using against the forces of the Empire in Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning.
This time, EA Mythic‘s overview focuses on the Province of Reikland and the important role it will play in the great conflict. For more psychological warfare turn to the full article after the jump.
The greatest danger to the Empire, it seems, lies not in the threats from without, but the threats from within. Tchar’zanek, Champion of the Chaos Warhost in Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning, has been busy planting seeds of corruption and unrest in Reikland.
According to EA Mythic, Reikland is the very heart of the Empire – the center of commerce and a strategic location in the war between the Armies of Order and Destruction. The agents of Tchar’zanek have been doing their treacherous work, and they’ve been doing it well. Stories have been told of peasants and noblemen who have turned against the Empire.
Emperor Franz, however, is not without tactics of his own. The elite fighting forces of the Reiksguard and the Order of the Griffon stand in Tchar’zanek’s way. Witch Hunters have also been working hard to counter the black propaganda. These Hunters root the agents of subterfuge out and burn them at the stake.
As the mind games between Chaos and Order continue, the very fates of Altdorf and the Empire hang in the balance. What will become of the Empire now? Watch this space for more of EA Mythic’s updates on the war and lore of Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning!
