‘Death to the enemies of Kith!

May their blood further temper the metal of our swords!

Death to the enemies of the Empire!

May Dakur grant us victory or suffer us to die with honour!’

Kithian War Chant

Through this perverted, symbiotic relationship, he learned to understand and control the great power that fear was to bestow upon him.

This warrior was Kith, father of the Kithian nation, ancestor of Baltrath’s mightiest empire.
