Frosthelm factionIt’s time for a change. He makes his way towards the gates with farec, his faithful horse, by his side. As he steps out into the frigid air, he slowly reaches his hand back to his right hip where a hollowed skeleton horn is sheathed. He wets his lips, and presses it to them, releasing a seemingly endless, booming tone. Before he can place the horn back in its holster, a legion horse arrive to stand next to him, each with a Dwarf sitting proudly atop.
