History

Age of Myth

The deity known as Lauchon the Soulseeker was worshipped by the first mortal civilizations of Shyish, until some point in the distant past when he was destroyed by Nagash.[1a]

Shards of the god still linger, for he is deeply tied to the Amethyst Magic of Shyish, and have become Endless Spells, sapient and predatory forces of magic that seek prey. Sigmar hunted down these shards and other predatory forces of magic and locked them away in his Stormvaults.[1a]

Age of Sigmar

One of the Shards of Lauchon the Soulseeker was sealed beneath Lethis, the Raven City, within the Midnight Tomb. This shard and others like it are released from the Stormvaults as the warring factions of the Mortal Realms ransack the ancient vaults in search of the artefacts within.[1a]

Powers

The Soulseeker, and his shards, knows where every soul within the mortal Realms can be found and for a hefty toll, a soul for a soul, can guide a spellcaster to their location.[1a]
