Official thread of Lordaeron
2015 03/04 - It was decided that Lordaeron should have much smaller counties in the third world than in the second. This would solve the problem of other factions accidentally settling on county land and the shorter distances would make it possible to have railroads for transportation instead of a webway. Lordaeron moved to an area on the south coast of the northern continent with clear natural borders. Khanduras and Southshore were merged and put next to Ascalon to form the city of Ascalon, ruled by count KingandQueenz. This merged county was made part of Seshara under duke Yoshikiller2. Ascalon was put in the south center of the land, Stratholme in the southwest, Remn in the north center, Andorhal in the northwest, Oceanna in the northeast and Sylvania in the southeast. Ancient Vashjir which was claimed by Lordaeron at the end of the second world were brought along as well as non-county land and would become a naval and submarine base for Lordaeron, southwest of Ascalon. Construction of the Imperial Railway begins as a replacement of the old webway which was now unusable due to the different positions of the counties.

Ragnarök arrives and despite all the might of Lordaeron and its allies, Níðhöggr destroys Ascalon and Khanduras and only suffers minor injuries. The surface navy and airship fleet were burned to ashes in moments. The great raven statues Huginn and Munnin and all the dead of the catacombs were animated by defending wizards but all were annihilated by the invincible dragon. After the beast had torn apart the spire of the citadel, the surviving officers, chancellor, the Emperor and imperial troops held a last stand in the ruins of the throne room with ranged weapons and magic, but all were vapourized by Níðhöggr's flames. The other cities and communities are then swiftly destroyed, starting with Remn. It is said that when Remn burned in dragon fire, the statue of Roobsterism above cried a river of blood that temporarily held the flames off in northern Remn and allowed some citizens to escape into the mountains. Far more people survived in the other cities as they had more time to escape, and although only a fraction of the empire's population survived the dragons further rampaging and the hardships of the wilderness, the descendants of the empire would live on and form a large part of the populations of the new civilizations that would arise a thousand years after the beast had finally starved to death.
