History

Founding of Polcro

Polcro was founded many ages past by a roaming band of merchants and traders. The eldest of the band, Sendako Rayfield, assumed the role of leader in the encampment, and ran the small, but burgeoning town, with a fair and tolerant hand. He ordered many of his people to go out to all other lands and spread the word of the city he has created, greatly increasing the flow of traders and settlers to the town. Over the ages, the city grew to an immense size, that rivaled that of many large empires of the time.

Dwarves, First Contact

Many years have passed since the passing of King Sendako, his daughter, Kilian Rayfield, had assumed control of the city. As the city expanded further into the nearby mountains, she ordered a band of foot soldiers to explore many of the unexplored passes with hopes of expanding their mining operations. Many months passed until the group returned, donning masterfully crafted new weapons and armour, accompanied by a group of Dwarven Scholars and diplomats. The Dwarves and The Cronians came into a trade and military aggrement shortly after, and ushered in a new era for the city of Polcro.

My'Drakthian Arwen, the Great War

Deep within the mountains, hidden from the trade routes of the Cronian's, lived a race of troll like beings. No one knew what they were called, but the name "Skelden" which in the Cronian tongue meant "Dread", became the colloquial name among the people of Cronia. The Skelden had been watching the expansion of Polcro for many years, hating what they were doing for their native lands. On one night, when the city slept peacefully, the entirety of the Skelden force stormed into Cronian lands, sweeping through the unsuspecting outposts along the way. When word reached Polcro of the horde, Queen Kilian ordered the entirety of the Cronian forces onto the field. The two forces met on the Plains of Sen. The battle that followed lasted countless months, with the Skelden endlessly pushing their immense numbers onto the plains, and the Cronians with there many allies masterfully holding the line with expert military tactics. In the end Polcro and her allies emerged victories, but suffered immense losses.

The Elven Alienage

Only a few weeks had past since the great war with the Skelden, when bands of high elves ventured into the Cronian Court, saying there homeland had been taken over by an unknown force, and almost all of their city had been exterminated in t resulting battle. They were traveling to another city of the elves, but their supplies were running low, and they wouldn't be able to make it. When all hope had been lost, they ventured upon Polcro, seeing this as a good omen they asked for refuge from Queen Kilian. Queen Kilian had grown bitter over the course of the war, and forced them into slums on the outside of the city, and to work in the Cronian mines and any slave-driven task she could think of. Only a few were allowed to enter the city, even less were allowed citizenship. One such elf, was Tylious Dawnbane.

The Rise of Tylious

Tylious Dawnbane had proven a great asset to the Cronian force, he slowly worked his way up the ranks of the force to become head commander. Queen Kilian was impressed with his prowess, and granted him an elite force of soldiers, his own to do with as he wished, dubbed the Cronian Legion. A select few within the legion were named Dawnbane Enforcers. Within the Dawnbane Enforcers was Tylious' right-hand, and close friend, Fordron Banesmite. Fordron saved Tylious' life just as much as Tylious saved his, and led the Cronian force if ever Tylious was unable. The Legion was the spearhead of many decisive battles, led by Tylious and Fordron, and the group led to the success of all of them.

My'Draknothar Olren, The Blood Era

Many years had come to pass since Polcro's golden age had come to an end, and had fallen into a state of civil unrest as a result. The entire city has become a walled military fortress, the citizens never walked the streets, Queen Kilian had grown insane and ornery in her advanced age and ordered the construction of mechanized giants and siege machines to protect the empire from any sort of intrusion. Murder was common, death was abound, people started calling this "The Blood Era" of Cronia. Queen Kilian had pushed all her gold coffers into the construction of mighty titans, that she left everything else unprotected, when the Skelden emerged once again from the mountains, this time led by Galeron Duskwither, an Elven Necromancer and lich lord. The Skelden ripped through the city, slaughtering anyone that stood in their way. The legion stood valiant at the final battle in the court, but even they failed. Tylious and Fordron, the last of the Cronian legion, managed to strike down hundreds of Skelden, even taking down all of Galerons commanders, before Tylious met his fate before the hands of Galeron himself, giving Fordron a chance to escape. Any survivors that managed to escape traveled east. They have constructed a new city, dubbed New Polcro, under the command of Fordron, the only known living Dawnbane Enforcer.

Old Polcro Today

The entirety of Old Polcro had been taking by Galeron and his Skelden minions, Anyone who dares walk by the old city can see the Skelden building expansions onto the walls and buildings. Giant thundering titans can be seen patrolling the old walkways of the ancient city. Some rumors have arisen that Galeron has resurected Tylious to serve him; these have been confirmed as true, and that he has struck down Galeron in rage, thus taking control of the Skelden Horde. The city hangs in ruins, titans patrol the once grand gardens, now military battlements, and ice creeps from the old Court of Cronia. Only the brave can strike down Tylious in the heart of the once great empire.

The Instance

The New Polcro Strike Force is leading the siege of the city, hoping to reclaim it from Tylious' icy grip, and capture the ancient technology within. Old Polcro involves many stages to gain access to Tylious, all are mandatory. Listed in order:

Old Polcro is a giant instance, with The R.B. stating that "you can clear the forest, and you'll come to a giant stone wall, which you will have to back way to see Cronia Castle, or even the tip of where Tylious resides."

In the instance, the New Polcro Strike Force will allow use of their vehicles, called CCVs (Cronian Combat Vehicles) that you have a limited use for. They can be used in most parts of the Onslaught, and at the beginning of the Blood Grounds.

Members of the New Polcro Strike Force will be fighting mobs throughout the Onslaught and Blood Grounds. New Polcro Strike Force (or NPSF) members will also help you in anyway they can during some minor battles, but you're on your own for bosses. The types of NPSF units are:
