From the Deep is a short story by Jaine Fenn which tells of the fight against chaos by the Sylvaneth Water Spirits that dwell beneath the Sea of Serpents.[1]


In the verdant realm of Ghyran, the War of Life rages. The sylvaneth, forest spirit defenders of the realm, battle the pustulent might of Nurgle's Rotbringers, with the future of their very land at stake. But beneath the calm surface of the Sea of Serpents, the war is being waged on another front. The Naereids, custodians of the underwater forests, are beset, as bloated Blightkings intrude upon their sunken fields and threaten to destroy everything they hold dear. Kelara, leader of the Naereids must muster her defences and hold off the relentless assault – or all she has known may be lost.

Whilst tending her kelp forest, the Naereid Kelara and her sisters are attacked by Chaos warriors in the service of Nurgle. Having escaped their attacks in the previous age, she and the other Sylvaneth must not only fight to survive but decide if they will take part in the greater conflict for the Realm of Ghyran. [1]


Resistance is not enough! While Queen Alarielle rests in her sanctuary, the ruination grows unchecked. We must join with the sylvaneth, and all those in Ghyran who remain faithful to the Everqueen, and combat this threat. How can you just stand by?

~Kelara to Usniel, the Lord of the Deeps.[1]
