The Grand Alliance of Death, also called the forces of Death or simply Death, is comprised of the armies of Undead and mortals that follow the dark commands of the Great Necromancer Nagash, the god of death and the Supreme Lord of the Undead.
The goal of the forces of Death and their master Nagash is to kill all the living of the Cosmos Arcane, imposing the true order of the dead upon all the Mortal Realms, rather than just containing the dead to their rightful place in Shyish, the Realm of Death.
These armies of Death are numberless, brought to undeath from the remains found in tombs and among the corpse-mounds of ancient battles.
All types of Undead creatures can be found in the service of Nagash, including the skeletal Deathrattle warriors, the rotting corpses of Deadwalkers and the spectral wraiths and gheists of the Nighthaunt that haunt the realms.
In the war-torn Mortal Realms, the unquiet dead are plentiful indeed. Some have the power to bind the slain to their will, from the most bestial corpse to the most kingly of spectres.
These revenant armies walk abroad in every realm, grave-cold blades hacking into warm flesh whenever their masters seek dominion over the living.
