Prince of Zoluren (364 AV - 394 AV). Preceded by his cousin Sirolarn, succeeded by his son, Belirendrick IV.


Milestones

Born 335 AV. Only son of Prince Belirendrick III and wife, Lady Selan Weyato.

Approx 347 - 353 AV: Fostered in Therengia as a paladin squire with Baron Jeladric IV.

In 360 AV his father Belirendrick III was assassinated. With the assistance of his mother's relatives, Vorclaf fled to Therengia and remained in hiding while an investigation into the murder took place.

In 364 AV with the assistance and support of the Therengia, assumed the throne after executing his cousin Sirolarn for the murder of his father. Vorclaf had Sirolarn's head placed on a pike outside the East Gate of Crossing.

In 373 AV (Dolefaren) his coronation was held at the Keep. The Baron, the Ferdahl, many representatives of the Zoluren Houses, and most of the Zoluren Guild Leaders were present.

In 374 AV recalled and appointed new command for the Zoluren militia to combat the growing threat from various 'evil' forces allying against the Realm.

In 376 AV appoints his cousin, Lindryl interim Royal Steward of Zoluren and vowing vengeance upon the Outcasts for the murder of the Ferdahl, mobilizes the militia for the march south in an attempt reclaim Ilithi. He is joined by his cousin, Baron Gyfford of Therengia and later Prince Fayne, favored son of Queen Morganae of the Mountain Elf clan.

In 376 AV the necromancer Velmix manages to place a curse upon Vorclaf in an effort to stop his interference in Shard. While quick action by his people prevented full possession, the effects would linger for some time.

In 382 AV Vorclaf married Princess Arilana of Andreshlew. Leaves Zoluren once again in the care of Royal Stewart Lindryl and travels with his new bride.

In 384 AV returns to Ulf'Hara Keep with Princess Arilana after receiving word that Consumption has stricken Crossing and the Royal Steward Lindryl is gravely ill.

In 391 AV the Princess Arilana gave birth to fraternal twins. The older Princess Inavia, named for Arilana's mother. Followed by a boy, Prince Belirendrick IV, named for Vorclaf's father. When asked, Princess Arilana replied that both children resemble their father. (i.e. the children are human). See Post:Zoluren Questions! - 6/18/2009 - 16:59:53.

In 392 AV (Fall) during a relative time of peace by Prince Vorclaf's decree, General Zukir disbanded and retired those remaining 'official' militias and active members as having served Zoluren with honor.

In 394 AV (Summer and early Fall), While a devote follower of Kertigen until this point, Vorclaf received visions from the Immortal Meraud used to fight the undead scourge Lyras and her thrall.

Died 394 AV (fall) at the hands of the Necromancer Lyras while leading a raid on her war camp. Upon his death, Lyras tries to take Vorclaf's soul, but Meraud intervened and takes the soul to the Starry Road. See The Battle of Sorvendig's Stand.

Death of father, ascent to throne

In 360 AV, Prince Belirendrick III was killed under mysterious circumstances during Grand Ball at DiSilveron Manor. Vorclaf disappeared after this. In his absence, Vorclaf's cousin Sirolarn was named Regent and subsequently appointed himself Prince.

Later, during the conclusion of Sorrow's war, Vorclaf returned to Zoluren with Baron Jeladric IV's army from Therengia.

A delegation from Dirge was sent to Ulf'Hara Keep to negotiate with Sirolarn. He killed a member of the delegation and then fled south, but was captured before reaching the gondola. Sirolarn was subsequently executed and had his head placed on a pike outside the East Gate of Crossings.

Vorclaf ruled for several years, preferring to avoid the pomp and vanity that surrounded his cousin's coronation. He eventually acquiesced to a more subdued and appropriate ceremony (Oct 26 2003) in Ulf'Hara Keep.

Major events and actions taken during reign

Fended off Molphant and Midjure's attempt to take throne. Later forgave those who were duped by Midjure into assisting with the plot, amongst them Pureblade, Toren, Laelia, Valloa, Kakun and Viptorian.

Fought Outcasts.

Trading Card

Vorclaf Sorvendig is the son of Prince Belirendrick Sorvendig and Princess Selan. When he was 25, his father was assassinated by his cousin, Sirolarn. Fearing his cousin might then kill him, Vorclaf fled Zoluren to seek asylum in the north. During the Sorrow War, he returned to his homeland, and with the support of the Therengian Baron, claimed the throne of Zoluren.
