Warcraft 3: Frozen Throne - Undead Campaign - Chapter 1: King Arthas

Location: Lordaeron, Tirisfal Glades


At the capital city of Lordaeron, near the ruined Palace Gardens, Archimonde’s pet dreadlords discuss their current plans for the Scourge.

Detheroc It’s been months since we last heard from Lord Archimonde. I grow tired of watching over these rotting undead! What are we still doing here?

Balnazaar We were charged with overseeing this land, Detheroc. It is our duty to remain here and ensure that the Scourge is ready for action.

Varimathras True. Though we should have received some kind of orders by now.

In the distance, Lich Kel’Thuzad and Sylvanas watch closely the Dreadlords and their petty chat.

Sylvanas Windrunner: The Legion was defeated months ago. How could they not know?

Kel’Thuzad: Impossible to say. But the longer they remain in command, the more they run the Scourge into the ground.

The Gates outside the Ruins of Lordaeron are knocked furiously until the doors split open.

Sylvanas Windrunner: What? Who could possibly …

King Arthas: Greetings, dreadlords. I should thank you for looking after my kingdom during my absence. However, I won’t be requiring your services any longer.

Varimathras Prince Arthas!

Balnazaar This land is ours. The Scourge belongs to the Legion!

King Arthas: Not anymore, demon. Your masters have been defeated. The Legion is undone. Your deaths will complete the circle.

Detheroc Never! This isn’t over, human.

The Dreadlords teleport away, escaping King Arthas.

Kel’Thuzad: We knew you would return to us, Prince Arthas.

King Arthas: I have returned, lich, but you will now address me as King. This is, after all, my land. Now, we must secure the kingdom by scouring the last remnants of humanity from it!

Kel’Thuzad: But, my king, the humans have begun to abandon their villages. They are fleeing to the canyon passes! If they escape into the mountains, it will be impossible to hunt them all down.

King Arthas: Then we must slaughter them before they escape! Their deaths will be a fitting tribute to Ner’zhul!


Slaughter Human Refugees

– Destroy the refugee towns (0 of 9 Obliterated)

– No more than 20 Humans may get through the canyons

There are several bands of Human refugees attempting to escape to the recently captured city of Dalaran. Rout them and burn down their pathetic villages and encampments to show them the folly of trying to escape Arthas’ wrath.

HINT – You control three different sides. Arthas in the bottom, Kel’Thuzad in the top right, and Sylvanas in the bottom right. Villagers can escape through any of these passes.

Kel’Thuzad: Stop them before they reach the pass! We cannot allow the humans to escape!


Slay the Paladins

– Destroy the three Altars

Halahk the Lifebringer: Arthas, you wear your father’s crown as if you earned it. You may kill me, but my brethren will never stop hounding you!

King Arthas: I can’t believe that any of you survived the first purge. No matter. After today, your self-righteous order will cease to exist.


Slain the Paladins

King Arthas: Aarrghh … The pain is unbearable. What is happening to me?

The lich king: Danger draws near! Power is fading. Time is running out!

Kel’Thuzad: King Arthas, do you need assistance?

King Arthas: No. The pain has passed, but my powers are diminished. Something is terribly wrong here.

Kel’Thuzad: Shall we recall our forces?

King Arthas: No. I will finish the hunt. We’ll solve this mystery once our business is done.


Slaughter Human Refugees

King Arthas: At last, the Alliance is finished! Once we round up the last stragglers, we should be—Aarrghh … Not again!

The lich king: It is I, the Lich King. Danger draws near the Frozen Throne! You must return to Northrend immediately! Obey!

Kel’Thuzad: My king, you are not well.

King Arthas: Take me back to the capital. I have a long journey ahead of me.
