When used, the text reads:
The Ascalonian royal line changed hands following an act of regicide during the third guild war as Duke Barradin relinquished the throne to the popular usurper Adelbern.
Adelbern's son and heir, Rurik, was well liked by the people, in part due to his eagerness to be at the front of the battle against the charr.
In defiance of his father, the prince led to an exodus to Kryta in an attempt to help his people escape the charr.
Although his people made it to safety, Rurik was slain at the mouth of the Frost Gate while holding off angry dwarvesDagnar Stonepate and his Stone Summit kin.
Rurik's allies avenged their fallen prince, slaying Dagnar Stonepate within Thunderhead Keep. Later, they undertook a quest to Rurik's soul to rest, giving him a place in the Hall of Heroes.
