Wow Nagash - Big Spoilers
Seriously things are changing majorly. I just got to the part after Nagash has returned and it has some serious implications. Please don't read on if you don't want it spoilt.
Eltharion and Belannaer are gone, Eltharion turned to dust by Arkhan the Black and Belannaer destroyed after Mannfred Von Cartsein threw something akin to purple sun at him and his regiment of Swordmasters, Belannaer threw up a shield, but Mannfred used it as a distraction to plant a seed into the mind of a swordmaster who attacked Belannaer and cut him down the back, disrupting the shield which then obliterated the unit.
Mannfred seized a female elf prince from Tiranoc and has turned her into a Vampire that nows resides in Drakenhof Castle. Volkmar is dead, having been used as a vassal for Nagash to possess and return in, Morigana Le Fey is dead, her throat slit and used to pool around Volkmar's feet.
Aliathra, the supposed Everchild (Daughter of Everqueen and Phoenix King) is also dead she was used in the same way as Morigana, however what Arkhan and Mannfred didn't know was that she wasn't the child of the Everqueen and Phoenix king but actually the Everqueen and Tyrion, thus she had the blood and curse of Aenarion within her. This was transfused into Nagash who is now cursed and sapped of power thus making his attempt at battling Chaos a lot harder and slower.
All this in the end was actually manipulated by none other than....Teclis and Malekith working together! Teclis sacrificed not only his brother's daughter, but also Eltharion and Belannaer so that he could weaken Nagash. This was done so that Nagash didn't simply rush off to confront Chaos and ultimately lose, but instead to make Nagash significantly weak enough that he would be more cautious and in the end contribute to the war effort in a lesser but useful way.
Marius Leitdorf's brother who was Grandmaster of the Knight of Sigmar's Blood is also dead, he got suckered in an ambush after he moved to far ahead of his High Elf allies and ended up being drained of blood by Mannfred. Mannfred was wounded by Eltharion who he couldn't beat in physical combat and was beaten when a near dead Stormwing used his last strength to raise up and fall on top of Mannfred, this allowed Eltharion to use his sword to piece the barrier guarding Arkhan with his magic sword, which disintegrated after getting him through, so Eltharion tried to beat Arkhan with his fist, but Arkhan put his hand on Eltharion vambrace and turned him to dust.
Other points, the Bretonnian King is gone, considered dead at the hands of his Bastard Son, who in turn eventually has his head cut off by a returning Gilles le Breton. All of Tilea and Estalia has pretty much been enslaved by Skaven apart from some which got entirely obliterated by Daemon incursions. Settra is awake and has awoken every Tomb King.
Malagor the Beastman Shaman's army, which was been directed at stopping Nagash by the Chaos gods was suckered into following one of Mannfred's general's which ended with them coming into contact with a huge army from Karak Kadrin lead by the Slayer king, the Slayer king was responding to Karl Franz in asking for help to support the High Elves and Empire army sent to deal with Nagash, the battle with the Beastmen though left 8 out of 10 Dwarves dead and 1 out of 10 unable to fight, so despite wanting to die in a glorious fashion, he did his kingly duty and returned to his hold.
The Everqueen came seeking the aid of the Wood Elves to recover her daughter, they agreed and sent Araloth to aid them, but after finally defeating a banshee sent to slow them, they came upon Araloth's Goddess and she transported them to Ulthuan. Loren itself is beset by Beastman and a sort of plague that is making trees rot and their queen very very ill. For some reason it was Drycha who delivered Morigana le Fay to Mannfred after the Battle of Quenelles.
Also the Amethyst College has disintegrated as Nagash attempts to make himself the Avatar of Death Magic.
