Molten Alliance

Heads of a Molten Facility.

The Molten Alliance is the unexpected consolidation of Flame Legion and dredge forces by Scarlet Briar to combine the magic of the charr with the technology of the dredge. According to a dredge prisoner, a "smooth talker" from "the city" approached the dredge with an offer from the charr faction to form an alliance. The moletariate pushed their comrades into the alliance, expecting to use the charr's fire magic to enhance their weapons technology, i.e. their greed for more power overwhelmed the dredge's general hatred of oppressors such as the Flame Legion. In contrast, the Flame Legion had always planned to make use of dredge technology to seize more territory and eventually re-enslave the dredge.

History[edit]

In early 1326 AE, the Molten Alliance established itself in several Molten Facilities beneath the Wayfarer Foothills and Diessa Plateau, without being detected by the Orders due to their attention on the Elder Dragons.[1]. They attacked several settlements, taking prisoners and putting them to work in Azurite Crystal mines, as well as testing new weaponry on them. The displaced refugees fled to Hoelbrak, the Black Citadel, and Lion's Arch, and many were later relocated to Southsun Cove and Cragstead. After attacking Cragstead and the North Nolan Hatchery, the charr gladium Rox, under orders from Rytlock Brimstone, and the young norn hero Braham Eirsson joined forces with the Vigil to stop the Alliance. Many of the facilities were destroyed, and the Molten Alliance were thought defeated.

Later in the year, the Molten Alliance resurfaced, attacking locations around Tyria with the help of Aetherblade pirates under the command of Scarlet Briar.

Notes[edit]

  • Bonuses against Flame Legion and Dredge (e.g. from slayer potions or sigils) do not count against these NPCs, as they are considered part of the Molten Alliance, in order to accommodate shared loot tables.

Trivia[edit]

  • Fledge, a contraction of "Flame Legion" and "Dredge", was the name used at ArenaNet for the Molten Alliance while writing this story.[2]
