Spiteful as the sharpened thorn, dark as the shadows beneath the forest’s heart – fear the spirits of Dreadwood, for no mercy do they feel. The other glades do not trust Dreadwood, and with good reason. Its clans are cruel, malicious and spiteful, and delight in tormenting non-sylvaneth. There was never much mercy in these sylvaneth, and the terrible centuries of the Age of Chaos have leeched away the last of it. They are masters of subterfuge and trickery, and dark whispers persist that this callous and ambitious glade had some involvement in the Shrouded Time. Certainly, it cannot be denied that more Outcasts are drawn to their musters than to any other clan.

Overview

Dreadwood Glade, is on the Isle Decrepita region, of Ghyran. The Dreadwood Glade has a nasty habit, of stealing the children and soulpods of other Glades, Especially Oakenbrow. It is this reason alone, that the other Glades refused to help the Dreadwood Glade when Nagash and later Nurgle invaded. (Core 92-93)

Under guise of a mass diplomatic visit he brings his armies to the region in person via the vast vertebral structures known as the Gates Mortis. At first, his vanguard is held bay by the Dreadwood. However, seemingly endless undead pour through the gate and, ultimately, the Sylvaneth cordon is breached. A wide-scale eruption of violence is only halted by the direct intervention of Sigmar.
