Fear the Night

Hushed whispers tell of Dredge’s exploits on the eight oceans -- and of the treasures he has hoarded away. Not even death could stop the Admiral of the Abyss, now borne back into the world atop the horrid tentacles of the Abyss. Beware, all who dare sail his seas.

All knew fear when sailing the 8 oceans of the Realm. Admiral Dredge took as he wished and those few who survived spread the tale far and wide. But even Dredge, mighty as he was on the open seas, had his limits...until the Abyss found him.

The Abyss' most unsightly monsters have been dredged up und are invading the Realm! Expel these Abyssal Echoes from matches before they can escape, collecting the Dark Doubloons that linked their spirits to our realm. The Merchants of the Dark Exchange may have interest in taking them off your hands.

Match and Others[]


The Resistance rejoiced. The Warder's Relics were secured and with that victory.

Until he attacked. The most feared pirate of The Eight Oceans. Drawn to the ancient power the Resistance carry. On the open water none could challenge Admiral Dredge. The Resistance were routed, the weapons seized for Dredge's treasure board.

A dragon chooses its master and Dredge was found lacking. He sank into the depths until he was leagues from the land of the living, but the pirate was far from death. The Abyss bore Dredge back into the Realm on top of its bearing tentacles.

The undead admiral sails the seas again and none would take his treasure.
