Red Century

From Age of Sigmar - Lexicanum
Jump to: navigation, search

The Red Century or the Great Slaughter was the bloody hundred years following the end of the Nexus Wars. With the Pantheon of Order broken and the Gates of Azyr closed, organized resistance to the forces of Chaos had all but evaporated, and so the scattered kingdoms and empires of the Mortal Realms were unable to halt the advance of the hordes.[1a][2a] The slaughter only ends when the forces of Khorne, wanting to face worthy opponents again, turn on the armies of the other Dark Gods, beginning the Blood Times.[3a]
