They say Black Dow's killed more men than winter, and clawed his way to the throne of the North up a hill of skulls.

Thousands of men are converging on a forgotten ring of stones, on a worthless hill, in an unimportant valley, and they've brought a lot of sharpened metal with them.
For glory, for victory, for staying alive.
