Three days later, somewhere in the wintry peaks of the Alterac Mountains...


Somewhere in the Alterac Mountains, Arthas and Kel'Thuzad muster the Scourge army and discuss their next plans.



Arthas and Kel'Thuzad walk past a row of Ghouls feeding off of piles of corpses, while Necromancers raise skeletons from the same piles.
IconSmall ArthasDK.gif Arthas: So, you're not upset about me killing you that one time?
IconSmall Kel'Thuzad.gif Kel'Thuzad: Don't be foolish. The Lich King told me how our encounter would end.
IconSmall ArthasDK.gif Arthas: The Lich King knew that I would kill you?
IconSmall Kel'Thuzad.gif Kel'Thuzad: Of course. He chose you to be his champion long before the Scourge even began.
IconSmall ArthasDK.gif Arthas: If he's so all knowing, then how can the dreadlords control him like they do?
IconSmall Kel'Thuzad.gif Kel'Thuzad: They are agents of the ones who created our master: the fiery lords of the Burning Legion.
IconSmall ArthasDK.gif Arthas: What is this Legion?
IconSmall Kel'Thuzad.gif Kel'Thuzad: It is a vast demonic army that has consumed countless worlds beyond our own. Now, it comes to set this world to the flame. Our master was created to pave the way for its arrival. The dreadlords were sent to make sure that he succeeded.
IconSmall ArthasDK.gif Arthas: So the plague in Lordaeron, the citadels in Northrend, the slaughtering of the elves... It was all just to prepare for some huge demonic invasion?
IconSmall Kel'Thuzad.gif Kel'Thuzad: Yes. In time, you will find that our entire history has been shaped by the coming conflict. Now come, we have much work to do.
