Mysterious space fairing being known as old ones visits Warhammer World. They reshaped this world to fulfill their needs and eventually created several species with the intention to combat the forces of chaos. Their first creation was Lizardmen. They assisted their masters in the development of plans. However, the gates also known as stellar gates which the old ones used to enter the world collapsed and satanic legions of chaos flooded the world. As the old ones vanished, the lizard men were left to resist of the satanic tide.
The home of elves which is on the island continent of Ulthuan, was rampaged by the Daemons of Chaos. The heroes were emerged from the chaos; one was Aenarion the Defender (first of the phoenix Kings) and CaledorDragontamer. Aenarion helped in raising the army for the combats and Calebo helped in devising the plan to vanquish the chaos army.Aenarion would use ancient way-stones around the Ulthuan to decrease the energy of chaos.
Caledo with the secret help of the Slaan created the Great Vortex. They combined the winds of magic and draining chaos from the world. Though the plan was partially successful, the energy of chaos got drained but at the same time it continued to spill from the realm of chaos. Caledo and mages were doomed to a fate worse than death, as they got trapped in the vortex. Still they continued chanting spells to keep the vortex stabilized or else the world would have doomed.
While in the present day, a twin-tailed comet passes the world which disrupts the stability of the Great Vortex. The weakness of the comet is sensed by the four factions: the Lizardmen, the High Elves, the Skaven and the Dark Elves. The Lizardmen seek to stabilize the Vortex with High Elves, while the Dark Elves and Skaven seek to control the power of vortex for themselves.
