Tel'Nah, the Kingdom of the undead, is the newest of the seven kingdoms. It was created after the undead plague spread across what used to be the past ork nation and managed to have pockets of infection in every species on Gaianus. When the undead first started appearing it threw all the other kingdoms into a panic. They feared that they would become the next invaders and that they would wipe out the other nations after they were weak from the ork war. All the kingdoms started persecuting the undead. They would kick anyone out of a city that showed symptoms of the plague regardless of f they had the plague or not. They burned down entire cities that had been infected and would kill anyone that had inhabited the city. The newly formed undead peoples fled from all the other nations. They looked for a place to call home but no other kingdom small or large would accept them. Scorned by the hatred and fear of their former friends and family the undead continued their search. A large exodus of undead from all nations eventually came to the plaguelands, which was formerly the orxs territory. They saw this desolated and barren land and saw that it was like them. It too was destroyed by the actions of others and then rejected by them. The Exodus decided that they would create a nation here. The natural resources of the land were intact as the orxs refused to take them and harm the planet by doing so and no other kingdom could take them because of the plague that surrounded them. With the undead not needing rest, food, or water they managed to build a kingdom in a scary amount of time. They made the kingdom as a place that anyone who was undead could live in but any who were undead weren't welcome in the kingdom. This caused the other kingdoms to fear for their existence as they feared that a united undead kingdom would surely try to kill them. All the kingdoms united what was left of their forces and led them straight into the heart of the plaguelands. With this act they hoped to destroy the undead kingdom before they could destroy Gaianus. Thus did the first Plague War begin. The forces of Gaianus managed to surprise the undead and make their way to their capital and almost conquer it. However due to some brilliant defenses by the undead they managed to keep them out of the capitol. (The capitol of the undead kingdom was a different city than it was now) The kingdoms of Gaianus decided to lay siege to the city and in this they destroyed themselves. The undead plague started to spread through the ranks of the forces of Gaianus and killed troops faster than any battle before. Any time a soldier raised from the dead he was attack by his former allies and those that managed to get away joined the ranks of the undead. This caused the undead's forces to massively swell and the undead used this momentum to go on the offensive. They attacked the forces of Gaianus and broke the seige. After that the forces of Gaianus fled the plaguelands and surrendered. In that moment they finished the first Plague war after 2 years of fighting and cemented themselves in history because now no kingdom had the forces to completely destroy them. The undead then named themselves Tel'nah and made themselves an official kingdom. There were 3 more Plague wars after that which involved the undead expanding their borders to what they are now. Until Cor'Thazad became the Lich King all other kings before him refused diplomatic contact with the other kingdoms. For reasons unknown to the other kingdoms he has opened up relations with other nations. This has caused other nations to be a little less wary of the undead in modern politics.
